Meanwhile, back on our side of the pond...

No one's noticed but there's a very non-exciting British election going on. The only interesting points are that:
  • The Iraq war does not seem to be a large issue -- except in that after quite a few years in power, Tony Blair's personality has become an issue and the way he lied over the war has contributed to the public's distrust of him
  • After years of discussion about immigration being taboo, it is suddenly an issue
  • After years of slumber and total disarray, the right-wing Tories finally woke up a few weeks ago, just a couple of years too late. Still, they don't seem brave enough to actually stand for anything really right wing -- Danny pretty much expresses my thoughts on this here.
