Apparently over 22 thousand people complained. Go us! We made a movement! We got the politicians talking about it on TV.

The press can be really bad here, even though I think the UK is not bad for this stuff compared to most countries. Which is depressing if you think too long about it.

The same journalists who are homophobes are ususally also virulently misogynist, even the women journalists - especially the women - which never ceases to amaze me.

I've been keeping up with British politics more since I met you. All your fault! Before, I refused to take an interest on principle. 20 years of civil war does make you cynical.

Blair is campaigning now for EU President. A highly unpopular move here. Oh, so many jokes about that. But not as many as about Gordon Brown.

I still admire him, but it's like I can't say it in public now!

By the way, if you want to listen to a current affairs comedy that's a lot less poisonous than 'Have I Got News For You' (the one you called 'nasties', if I remember), I suggest the News Quiz, Radio 4. It's run by a Danish lesbian (how apt for a UK topical comedy, hah) and is generally brilliant. I never miss an episode and often download the podcasts:

Any episode with either Jeremy Hardy or Sue Perkins in it is usually gold.
