It was all going so well for Nick Clegg as he stood in for David “Junior Partner” Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions. He told Jack Straw – who is officially in the shadow cabinet list the “acting shadow deputy prime minister” – that the deadline for withdrawing from Afghanistan was 2015, not 2014, and it [...]
Why finding a parasailing donkey funny does not make you a maniac.
I was at the Vice/Intel Creators Project shindig with my colleague Jack Riley in London last weekend.
