Hey look, a reason to vote Labour!

Not to imply that there is a shortage of reasons, of course. Not at all to imply that we would only vote Labour to keep the Tories out. Not at all.

But nice words on the Guardian Letters page today (26/4):


A great deal has been achieved in recent years, and there is a new spirit of optimism among our young scientists and engineers, but the Labour government needs another term of office if we are to see the support put in place for the science and engineering base to maximise its contribution to our country's economic, social and environmental objectives.

A big list of signatures, including, I think, most of the cream of UK scientific talent. Stephen Hawking is on it. So is Susan Greenfield. And plenty of others.

And they are all smarter than you, so bow down to their awesome intellect.

On another note…

Dammit, I've been wasting way too much time recently. Most of it on webcomics. Read through the entire It's Walky archives last weekend. It's doubleplusgood. Action, melodrama, comedy, and romance. Ticks all the right boxes.

The strip is over now, so maybe you'd want to start at the Beginning.
