Heh, heh.  That'd be the third-fourth play-off you'd be talking about, eh? 
Rather their packs than the French, say I.  What a bunch of thugs!  Did like
laMaison, though - and I suppose said thugs have to get credit for giving
him the room for those worrying little kicks of his.

On that reckoning we should be seeing some dramatic polarisation at the
ballot box and not a little taking it to the streets.  Arguably, we're
seeing a bit of this in Germany and parts of the erstwhile Eastern bloc.  I
even detect a little leftish grumbling rising to the surface from the Noo
Labour backbenches - all with appropriate British reserve, of course - but
then the journey of a thousand steps starts with the first whimper, I
s'pose.  Is Tony Benn's retirement from the parliament for, er, more direct
politics getting much coverage over there, btw?
