  • @nmackinnon true. And it seems to take less time to read without the ads. in reply to nmackinnon #
  • @caronmlindsay s'alright – I can cancel and only pay a month's worth. in reply to caronmlindsay #
  • Phew, that's my online self-assessment done, and I'm only £12.30 the poorer for it. (Not counting time wasted waiting for HMRC site to load) #

  • That'll teach ComRes to trust Guido with a 10pm embargo -> RT @guidofawkes: ComRes Indy poll will show further Tory slippage to 7% lead #
  • RT @iainmartinwsj Com Res, has Tory lead of 7 points… Tories not leaving much room for error, are they? <- busy filling the room it seems. #
  • John Terry's real sin? Trying to thwart the tabloids, says Bagehot http://bit.ly/aAC9wR <- true 'nuff, but super-injunction his own fault. #
  • As Spinal Tap said, such a fine line between stupid + clever. As Austen Mitchell is *so* proving on #tboc #
  • Sense of hopeless despair? Life always dull? Then start a petition to present to your local councillor. It keeps Lib Dems chipper. #tboc #
