miss_s_b: (Fangirling: Vince Cable)
Andy Hinton detailed this in an excellent post nearly a week ago. With quotes and everything. Yes, Vince used the words graduate tax, but I used the words Richard Littlejohn this morning, and that doesn't mean I approve of him or are proposing him as a solution.

Can we all please stop believing the myths we are spoonfed by the old media, even when it's about what our own Vince said, and actually LOOK at what was said? It would make life so much easier.

In random order:

- Museums are Great comments on the coalition government's proposals to screw the poor further close the MLAC.

- JaeKay is angry that the Daily Fail seems to think it's OK to be homophobic if you're gay (in which case, what's Jack Straw's excuse?)

- Blog Awards season is truly underway: Helen has announced the botties. For openness and transparency, here is who I have nominated:
# Best new Liberal Democrat blog (started since 1st September 2009) - Thagomizer by Debi Linton, who dabbles in fossils and bones.

# Best blog from a Liberal Democrat holding public office (The Tim Garden Award) - Liberal Bureaucracy by Parish Councillor The Honourable Lady Mark Valladares

# Best use of blogging / social networking / e-campaigning by a Liberal Democrat - Andy Strange on Strange Thought's in depth and informative coverage of the situation on the ground in Luton South.

# Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog (since 1st September 2009) - I'm going to be male, er, I mean cheeky here, and nominate myself - I think I probably need to read that post more often. And it's not often I do a Keep Calm and Carry On type post, so I'm rather proud of that one.

# Best non-Liberal Democrat politics blog - Penny Red by Laurie Penny

# Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year - Millennium, as always. He typifies everything I value about being a Lib Dem - ferociously intelligent, takes the urine out of the opposition and himself, is fluffy, and is obsessed with Doctor Who. And frankly, I think the discrimination against him must end.
You can feel free to nominate me if you like, but it might be more productive to nominate someone who actually has a cat in hell's chance of being voted for by that tranche of judges. Also, bear in mind that whoever wins ALWAYS either leaves the party or stops blogging or both. Even the mighty James Graham was affected by this curse for a while. So use your nomination wisely. Oh, and just to remind you, you still have a couple of days left to vote in the Total Bollocks awards too.

- Stupid Scientologists don't understand the Striesand Effect. Sign up to support John Dixon here.

- There's a fighting fund been set up for justice for Ian Tomlinson. Details here.

- I am unsure about this (also posted about here). I accept that (for example) LDV costs a lot to maintain, and we'd miss it if it was gone. I do not accept the principle that dirty money is ok spent on good causes, and I DO think that allowing someone's advert to appear on your site involves at least some degree of tacit endorsement. I am therefore, as of today, no longer linking to or contributing to any sites which carry messagespace advertising. Better hope that Helen keeps crossposting her LDV stuff to her personal blog, then...

- Print Journalists keep on digging their own graves.

- Porn or RomComs - which damages relationships more?

miss_s_b: (TG: Arse)
One of the things about this Time of the Moth is the that I get an urge I never get the rest of the time: to sit and watch kids' telly. Preferably with a big bucket of ice cream and a duvet. And I am watching Richard Hammond's Blast Lab.

In one sense, it's like your traditional kids' TV game show. It has screaming kids in the audience, and the ubiquitous gunk tank. But the quiz element of it is based around the cool things you can do with science, and experiments. It also has Oliver, the Opel Kadett, and Hammond's Ninja Nan and Mini (female) science teacher.

The thing that I really like, though, is Hammond's little asides to camera while the kids are doing the science tasks, giving little titbits of facts or comments on their performance. Oh yes, and the kids who "lose" get to explode all their prizes.

Of course, the best thing about it is that it's very silly indeed. I approve.

Featured on Liberal Democrat Voice

From the website of the Early Learning Centre.
For the little princess in the family we have great feminine outfits like Butterfly Fairy, Sleeping Beauty, Ballerina and Nurse’s uniform. Why not add a medical case for that extra touch of authenticity.

The boys are catered for too, with great Doctor, Policeman & Fireman uniforms, not to mention fantastic Pirate and Knight costumes. All these can be combined with a range of accessories so your child will really look the part.
Because, apparently, boys can't do ballet, and girls can't be doctors.

You can contact them via the page here if you'd like to express your displeasure, and pass it on.
