Oh, I know, one can blog about politics.
Whether one of my best friends excommunicates me or not, I might have to start voting Lib Dem.
Actually, look carefully at the alternatives. The only thing that would have stopped my becoming an ardent Lib Dem supporter is if, when Nick Clegg turned up at the university on Thursday, was if he had said "Hello, Oliver. I'm going to break into your house tonight and eat your cat".
If you actually listen to the man, you'll find out that he's a proper old-style socialist, with some caveats - caveats that I appreciate.
But the man can say what he likes, because nobody listens, anyway...
