Not taken as read

Like another Lib Dem blog-geek, I’ve had been having fun getting to grips with Google video clips.

I’ve posted the first one at my main gaff,, where you can scoff at my floundering attempts simultaneously to operate a camera while ad libbing my support for Nick Clegg’s Extradition (United States of America) Bill. This aims to repeal parts of the lopsided Extradition Act 2003, and so bring an end to the unfair extradition procedures which this week saw the deportation of the NatWest Three to Texas without any evidence being presented.

I would love to say it only needed one take. The truth’s a bit more embarrassing than that. I can see why newsreaders have autocues.
