First full week of campaign - Cameron falls apart on gay rights
Well, they're off. Brown ok in TV debate, although the real story was clearly Nick Clegg's performance. But this was the best news of the week for me - look at the Tories on gay rights. They're all over the shop.
Activist, free thinker, Labour Party management team through 2001 and 2005 general elections, responsible for Labour's early web presence and creator of its first-ever national electoral register. Dad to two lovely little girls. Now work as project/programme/interim manager for an evil multinational, with a sideline in political commentary.
Politically think of myself as a loyalist (rather than a parrot). Member of Progress and the Co-op. My posts are vetted only by my, er, own sense of discretion and propriety. I've worked in business for many years, so have no truck with anti-business prejudice. Like social/ethical business, co-operatives and sustainability. Fought one general election and longlisted by NEC panel to be Labour candidate in 2010.
Nothing wrong with wanting to change the world, is there?
