Today started with Make Poverty History's march leaving from Chamberlain Square to go to Edinburgh. Then I did the advice bureau and then opened the new pavilion for Manor House Gardens Allotments (arguably the best allotments in the country).
The little girl is my daughter Alice who had her 5th Birthday party today as Ash End House Farm.
A good photo of the cycle ride trio of Lib Dem MPs.
I am still juggling up what I should respond to the "SuperStud Brummie Lib Dem MP" story doing the rounds at the moment. If the newspapers do manage to hunt up 25 girlfriends that I have affairs with perhaps they could give me the names and phone numbers as I have no idea of who they are supposed to be. On the other hand it does trump all the other "sex scandals" I know of. The Daily Mirror have advertised for people to phone them. Oddly enough my wife has been offered £5K for a story by one newspaper and my girlfriend has been offered another £5K for her story by a different newspaper. Neither, of course, is going to take any money.
People may note that 26 is the birthday of my wife who suggested that number as an "illustrative" number. It is one of her favourite numbers.
Still in the mean time it is an interesting meme.
Perhaps that is why the story today hit the Telegraph, Times, Daily Express, Mirror, Sun as well as Birmingham Post and more nonsense in the Evening Mail - who normally do a better job.
One of the newspaper journalists said that I look like a bank manager and they cannot understand what women see in me. I would really like to know. (two papers have been chasing the story today)
I am, however, a bit miffed that I missed the boat on the publicity for dealing with Silent Calls. PMQ on Wednesday, action on Thursday. hmmm.
Shows how the system works. Interestingly a lot of people at the Manor House Allotments had had problems with silent calls.
