Thing number 1: The ID cards bill being passed by the Commons. I only found out that this bill was coming back to Parliament the night before it got its reading (nobody's fault but my own, I know) and immediately fired off an email to my MP. The only reply that I've had so far was one asking me to confirm my address, since he would only reply to people from his constituency.
Thing number 3: Somebody saw fit to make
that bigoted scumbag Ian Paisley a member of the Privy Council. I am most unamused about that.
