Mor on Politics....

And here's what our dear friend Mr. Clegg of the Lib Dems has got to say in his latest bit of e-mithering (good phrase that!)
"One of our four key pledges at this year's General Election will be our call for fairness and reform in the political system. This has been a rallying cry of our party for generations, and we have proud record on it. After the recent scandals it is needed now more than ever.
The excellent Power 2010 campaign group have been working hard to push these issues up the political agenda. I know many Liberal Democrats have been involved in their work and support their campaigning – as do I. That is why I am asking you to vote in their current poll to decide what their top five campaigning pledges should be for this election.
Needless to say I’m delighted to see that fair votes is currently topping the poll, along with a number of our other policies and I’ve already voted for them. I’ve also voted to give constituents the chance to kick out corrupt MPs, because after the recent expenses scandal I believe making MPs accountable should be a top priority in our reform of the political system.
Political reform is a hugely important issue for our country and our party; so I hope you will find a moment to take part in this campaign.
Best wishes,
Nick Clegg MP
Leader of the Liberal Democrats"

Don't all rush at once!...

Dear Tonbridge blogger

I'm writing to you on behalf of the Power2010 campaign for democratic reform. Firstly I wanted to say thanks for blogging about us and mentioning the campaign.

You'll have seen that we're now over halfway through the public vote phase of the campaign where the top 5 reforms that will form the backbone of the campaign are being voted for by the public.

There are 29 ideas being voted on. PR is currently in the lead, followed shortly by abolishing ID cards and the database state - but a lot could change between now and February 22nd when voting closes.

We're hoping to mobilise as many people as possible to vote to make the result as legitimate and powerful as it can be to strengthen our hand when we finally approach politicians and with that end in mind I wondered if you'd consider featuring one of these fashionable Power2010 "Vote" buttons on your website or sidebar?

There's even a choice of colours: black and white. Just copy and paste the HTML into your site.

Thanks again - and I hope you can keep following and blogging the campaign.

If you have any questions or feedback on the campaign do let me know.

All the best,
