The Professors passion for "The Science of Deceit" started here...

Employed by the Ministry (in a covert capacity) to help introduce the law ending dishonest politics, you can see his hand all over the posts of past.

Current political circumstances have forced him to reveal himself and as we speak, MPs are signing up to re-introduce The Elected Representatives (Prohibition of Deception) Bill for debate with over 80,000 voters supporting them.

Posts before Jan '08 are purely for the record (with hindsight they make fascinating reading). Posts after May 13th mark the Professor's return.

the Lord Chancellor (again ?)

Amongst the appointments we've been making to see MPs, the Lord Chancellor has in fact re-scheduled for next week. We're assured this had nothing to do with the extremely rare footage we previously un-earthed of an apparently youthful Lord Chancellor wearing a pre-judicial wig whilst mucking about with his flatmate of the time - Tony Blair.

If you've no idea what we're on about, check out the beginners guide and our Manifesto (so to speak).

Meantime the debate continues (unabated ?? Ed) over the wording of the Misrepresentation of the People Act. Hopefully we'll have it in decent shape to present to Lord Falconer for next week.


  1. dude, this is retarded.


  3. 'dude', explain yourself

  4. How exciting, good on ya guys!!

  5. How much have you altered the act in light of the suggestions for improvement?

  6. There've been some minor tweaks (for example keeping it out of the magistrates court with some sentencing tweaks) but essentially it's pretty much intact.

    The mens rea issue (see previous post) is one that's going to have to be dealt with but there's time before we make total twats of ourselves in front of our first MP)

  7. Even if you got the Act into law - you'd still have to get any prosecutions past the Attorney General. Suggest you try banging your head against a brick wall. It'll be more fun in the short, medium and long term.

  8. It'd be a start, though, wouldn't it? Apathetic fatalism won't get us anywhere...
