Firstly, I see despite only hanging onto his seat, Leamington and Warwick MP James Plaskitt has secured a position as Parliamentary Secretary in the Department of Work and Pensions.
Secondly, what do people think of the appointment of an unelected policy advisor as a Minister, by virtue of a swift appointment to the Lords?

Anyone who regularly reads my blog is probably lying, as I don't seem to update it much. I may redress this later in the term, but for the time being, with nothing much better to do, I shall plug my radio show.
The eclection primarily features jazz, world and folk music. Quite often there will also be the odd (And I mean odd) piece of "classical" music as well, the sort of thing we don't usually play on RaW Classics (Wednesday 7pm).
If anyone does listen either tonight or in the future, please email the show, just to say hi – It can get very lonely sometimes (This, though, is usually remedied by popping to Top B for a bit), and I'd like to know somebody's listening.
Here's an example playlist (tonight's actually):
Eliza Carthy & The Ratcatchers – Scan Tester's Country Stepdance/Lemmy Brazil's No2
David Krakauer – Dusky Bulgar
Miles Davis – Concerto De Aranjuez
Kathryn Williams – Swimmer
Keith Jarrett – Book of Ways 12
David Krakauer – Waiting for Julian/Sirba
Grier Tviett – Selction from Suite 1 of "A Hundred Hardanger Tunes" – RSNO cond Bjarte Engeset
La Bottine Souriante – A Travers La Vitre
If any of that takes your fancy, tune in at 11pm to 1251AM on campus, or listen online at www.radio.warwick.ac.uk

Oh, and the picture will be changed soon. And I HADN'T just killed anyone.
