Tabman on Lib Dem Voice makes a FINE point about Call Me Dave's views on proportional representation:
Whenever David Cameron mentions the benefit of FPTP, he should immediately be asked to resign in favour of Davidf Davis who “won” the FPTP bit of the election for Conservative leader:

1st Ballot result:
David Davis 62
David Cameron 56
Liam Fox 42
Ken Clarke 38
I have too many things to do and not enough time and my brain is all fuzzy this morning. Poo.

Roxy continues fine; Byron is getting a bit jealous that she's getting lots of attention, so I'm going to go make a fuss of him for a bit. Mat and Holly are both still snoring.

miss_s_b: (Politics: Democracy)
Today's political website is a MUCH BETTER effort: takebackpower.org is simple, effective, and impactful. If I was to make two tiny criticisms, they would be that I'd have made it relative rather than fixed-width, and text rather than images; and that (again) the navigational structure isn't clear. From an accessibility point of view, images are bad, and most of the site is text so doesn't NEED to be images, and if you want people to read your shit, first you have to make it clear that links are links. Also: unflagged .pdf files are BAD. If you are linking to a .pdf, TELL people you are linking to a .pdf.

But, you know, it looks pretty and isn't all bright white eye-hurty glare like google and the sodding BBC, and is simply and effectively laid out. And it's got one of my favourite songs into my head:





C+ for this one. Would have been a solid B had they done the sensible thing and gone for STV over sodding AV; which is not really the web designer's fault, but it NARKS me anyway.
