The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

|What, are you a first generation gamer? Did you own the brown box?! Whatever you do in your spare time, gaming seems to be your job. Either you looked up the answers or you're the best of the best, the type that makes other gamers strive to know more. Just don't let the knowledge overwhelm the newbies, it tends to push them from the hobby. We all bow before you. You are the living nat 20, congradulations. I'm going to flee the scene now ;)|

Friday night saw us braving Carensky's Ghost Train (http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/reviews/story/0,,1275330,00.html) and recovering with a top notch curry.
This weekend was www.londonopenhouse.org, so Saturday morning far too early saw Sally and I heading off to the Swiss Re building. It would seem that we were not the only people to have had the cunning plan of being there at 10am when it opened. The prospect of a several-hour wait sent us wandering, around the city, and we found St Botolph's-on-Aldgate, and Christ Church Spitalfields, which was particularly impressive. We also found S&M Cafe which proved to have an excellent all-day breakfast.
After that, it was back to building the bathroom, with a little trip down to Battersea to inspect some wooden flooring installed in the very posh (yet strangely prison like) Albion Wharf by the chap we will now probably get to do our front room.
And now it's time to watch Deadwood, see if it's as good as the hype. Report tomorrow.
Popped along to the National Theatre last Saturday to see Measure for Measure with Sally. I think I got slightly more out of it than I did last time I saw - but I was probably 13 or 14 then, and given the somewhat "adult" themes of the play plus the language, that's maybe not so surprising. It was a very good production, with it set in a quasi-current time, and nods to current events like George W and the orange Guantanamo-style suits of the prisoners. The acting was pretty good, although I found Isabella to be not quite believable enough to carry her unintentional seduction of Angelo.
Graeme was back over from Singapore, so I met up with him and those of the Shogun crowd (Guy and Iain) that we could round up. Played Diplomacy - first time in years - and I am pleased to announce that I won. Makes a change from getting slaughtered in Shogun.
Back in Sutton Coldfield all week now. Went to the leaving do of the interim FD. Felt somewhat out-of-place, and so left at an opportune moment. Get to meet the next interim FD this Friday - should be interesting.
