Seen Elsewhere (21)

Another round-up of interesting postings from elsewhere in the 'blogosphere'...

  • Booting up the surveillance state: Longrider on Geoff Hoon's inane fearmongering in defence of a massive communications database. Devil's Kitchen on proposals to register everyone who buys a mobile phone (!) - as Henry Crun remarks, its as if they are trying to anger those of us who care about privacy and civil liberties...

  • ...Which brings me on to the protests against this creeping totalitarianism. Guthrum (Looking For A Voice) plans to send a message to MPs with the help of a £5 book; Old Holborn with an anonymous walk.

  • Charlotte Gore has an amusing take on the bank bailouts. Mark Wadsworth has more serious commentary as the debate rumbles on.

  • Snuffy (To Miss With Love) suggests 20 changes to make education better. Agree or disagree - some are rather controversial - there's no disputing that this is someone who has been there and done it.

  • Counting chickens? Aaron Heath at Liberal Conspiracy on the 'collapse' of John McCain's presidential campaign, and John Demetriou on its having gone 'tits up'. Political Betting reports that Paddy Power have paid out on an Obama win.

Thanks for the link :)

I'm afraid the post got deleted by mistake though, so the URL is slightly different.

So glad there's a google cache!
