Errr, def'ly into 'pot'n'kettle' territory on that one Callum, what with our first past the post system I can't remember when a UK government had an absolute majority of votes cast. On the other hand they tend always to have more than any other single party.

Interesting. I did know a little bit about Cathars and that stuff, but never knew an English Monarch (however short reigned and French) was involved.

Until we make arrangements of some sort for Palestinian refugees, there will be no peace. Alas. A Palestinian state is one thing. Some recompense for people who were evicted from their land, which was then stolen, is an absolutely necessary other. Hell, it would have been less expensive for us to reimburse the refugees than it would have been to invade Iraq.

End of rant.

And how are we this evening?
