Moving on.

I am currently utterly shattered from the Northampton Convention.  Here’s a tip for you, if it’s bitterly cold outside and someone offers to take you on a banana boat: Just Say No!

Incidentally I fulfilled one of my wishes that morning.  The film was called Grounded, and was actually quite good, if downright bizarre and silly in several places.

In other happenings, the government survived a backbench rebellion on Trident, which to me is a good thing.  Now I don’t know what form our nuclear deterrent should take, but we should definitely have one.  There is this idea that we must be weak in order to have influence, but the weak cannot stop the bully, and after all it is the bully that Trident is the contingency for.  North Korea knows this perfectly well.
