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 Blah Party. Sensible.

We should declare an interest -
the first band your humble servant saw live in concert was the Damned at the Hammersmith Palais (you mean first concert without your Mum and Dad - that would've been ELO. Ed) and our first sight of Captain Sensible. We remain big fans of the Captain - a proper, salt-of-the-earth English gent. Not averse to the occasional bit of mayhem, he tells it like he sees it and isn't afraid to say it loud.

May 3rd sees local elections all over the country and the Captain is painfully aware that our electoral system has no checkbox for "abstain". In other words, if you happen to think all the candidates are shit and would like to register an abstention - you can't do it. Our last General Election gave the government a majority when it fact it only had 27% of the vote on one of the lowest turnouts in history.

We wonder what an "abstain" option on that ballot paper would've done to the turnout figure in 2005 ? Very shortly we'll find out.

Captain has set up the
Blah Party. Since it's launch last September they've attracted 10,000 members and are growing daily. They're standing for the local elections in Bradford. If you live there and you're fucked off with the current parliamentary party candidates - this is your chance to show it.

Vote Blah on May 3rd.

Blah! Party
