The special advisor has resigned.

Twitter is on some kind of anti-Guido binge.

David Amess, Conservative, Southend West

Possibly best known for somehow holding his Basildon seat in 1992 which foreshadowed the Conservative victory of that year.

Best known for "Cake", surely?

I'll let you know how I get on here, now I know that Prestwich is a 25k unit which shouldn't be split, I can only look at a Rest of Bury + Rochdale seat, bringing Prestwich with bits south....

When I eventually finish mine, the next step - typing up the proposals into a formal document. We better get reconition for this!

You'd have to include "Leith" in an Edinburgh seat name, they go mad if you don't....

Adam Afriyie, Conservative, Windsor

He seemed to be heading towards a decent career, but has fallen off the radar somewhat....

Well yes, Charlie does get like that some times.... You're right about the main issue, too. The manner in which the protest movement has been duped as much as rallied is staggering.

A superb article, this, full of his usual insight and humour. One of my favourite lines is below, but I urge everyone to read the whole thing


Quote
Perhaps spatial reality functions differently on the other side of the Atlantic, but here in London, something that is "two minutes' walk and round a corner" from something else isn't actually "in" the same place at all.

 I once had a poo in a pub about two minutes' walk from Buckingham Palace. I was not subsequently arrested and charged with crapping directly onto the Queen's pillow. That's how "distance" works in Britain. It's also how distance works in America, of course, but some people are currently pretending

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/aug/23/charlie-brooker-ground-zero-mosque

Yes, but we Brits don't matter with out socialistic ways to the Mosque protester crowd.

Mind you, your crazies are worse about these sorts of things.

Oh I'll grant you that, we have some fantastic crazies. Our talk show radio phone-ins may give yours a run for their money...

Do your talk-show hosts say the n-word repeatedly, too!?

One was sacked for calling someone a Nazi, if that's what you mean Wink Smiley

Following my Salford feedback (aka "change it, mate, seriously"), I've come up with what I think is a workable alternative.

I'm away tonight, so tomorrow will give it my full attention.

Cheers for that. Remember, I've done and dusted Lancashire, which includes three Bury wards, I can't start unpicking that.

Looks like I'm just not good enough for this. You've beaten me at something I thought I was good at!
599  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: August 22, 2010, 11:13:14 am
Aaagh this is so annoying. I 'll have to undo all my work to keep Prestwich together.

I'm starting to really fsking hate this boundary review business.

How do you lot get it done so quickly?

Prestwich is St Mary's and Holyrood and Sedgley wards.  I don't support this seat.


Bollocks. I thought it might be....Damn it, er.....can I offer a name change? I'm well onto Manchester now, I can't fiddle with Salford without splitting wards and there's no way an ordinary person can be expected to faff about with ward splitting.

"Bury and Prestwich" and "Worsley and....."..... what is the eastern Prestwich bits, then? I'll check election-maps.....
