Prepare for emergencies
Apologies for lack of political blogging of late. For now, a pleasing report that the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee has labelled Blunkett's ID card plan "badly thought out", a mention to the Prepare for Emergencies spoof site (via just about everyone, but here's what Nick has to say), and a note that the Hartlepool by-election is now in full swing, but we still don't know when it will be.
Meanwhile, I topped a week in which I built a bed by changing a fuse and restoring electricity to the house - although I suspect sticking a screwdriver into a live fuse box wasn't the most sensible way to do it. Still, when the attack comes, this electrical knowledge will stand me in good stead.
