    @madgod:
    Taking power by being voted in you mean?
    Fascism because they murder political opponents and are trying to dismantle democracy?

    @AcidSnake
    "Voted in" is a bit of a stretch considering they couldn't even manage a majority in the most favourable conditions for an opposition party in my lifetime (yes, I include 1997 in that).

    But yeah, allegations of fascism are bit loopy. For now.

    But that's how the system works isn't it? Taking power sounds a bit too much like an army marching to parliament and taking it over...

    I suppose this is a little bit OT, but Coulson has now been arrested for perjury. Some saying he's been charged as well.

    I think it's amazing that Andy Coulson took so long to resign. If you're going to be doing PR for a bloke, the last thing you want to be doing is attracting negative press by your very presence. Him and Cameron must have really had something going there to try ride that one out.
    I'm a better judge of character than Dave. I really don't think I'm unique there, though.

    I'd like to think that Coulson has some dirt on Cameron that he was using as leverage, but I'm just making stuff up to make the story more interesting probably.

    If he gets found guilty, I can see calls for Cameron's resignation coming not far behind.

    You can't fucking fart without someone calling for your resignation - it will mean nothing.

    Been charged! Wonder if Tommy will get his conviction quashed...
    I know some folk in the SSP (Tommy's ex-party), and they reckoned it was all true...but you know what these extreme lefties are like, not happy if they aren't splitting.

    Why should Cameron answer these calls dm?

    Because he hired him in full knowledge of the controversy around the hacking scandal, stood by him, and continues to stand by him.

    Labour have already said it was a colossal lack of judgement, the Lib Dems were always supremely uneasy about his appointment, and even some tory MPs are starting to question his judgement.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he gets deposed.

    I really don't think Cameron will lose his job over this, even if Coulson goes to prison. It will damage his credibility for a bit and it'll all be forgotten about in about a month.

    It's hardly Cameron's first failure of judgment, until he's actually charged with a crime or polling shows that the Tories would be certain to lose with him as leader, he'll stick around.

    Well Labour are already well ahead in the polls (shudder). Though that's par for the course when it comes to being in opposition during a government's first term.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    I'd love to see this extend to Alistair Campbell. Be an interesting press conference with Labour.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I seem to remember that the Tories were ahead of Labour in the polls during the fuel protests in 2000.

    And Cameron's press secretary listening to Jordan's inane xxxx texts vs. Blair's press secretary editing a seriously limited intelligence report as a prelude to a war we now know was for spurious reasons.

    Hmmmm.

    I'm talking to my MP on Saturday about this and that.
    Any tips or tricks for how I should quell my inner negativity? I know that going in there calling him a bullshitter is /not/ the way to approach the issue and I'm sure some of you are more trained or naturally diplomatic than I am - how do you shut that inner bullshit-caller up?

    I would recommend taking a couple of roll's of duct tape, some heavy duty bin liners, a pruning saw and some secateurs.

    That should cover you for making a visit to your local MP a worthwhile experience.

    Maybe just accord them the same respect you would want. Make salient and concise points. Remember they have to listen to raving loons and people complaining about potholes all day.

    Boring answer: remember the competing interests they have to.balance and don't do the irony dance and throw a hiss because your interests aren't getting priority.

    Some kind of list I shouldn't get sidetracked from sounds like a splendid idea.
    That and writing 'do not be a child' on the back of one hand.

    Ask him what everyone who voted for him in a fair, free election see in him that you don't.

    I voted for him last time, as it happens. A move I have come to regret.
