We started off on the worldwide political gamechanger that is/was Labour’s pink bus. However, after that we got down to more serious matters such as the work that Women for Independence have been doing since their inception and what the future holds for them.
We then spoke about more general matters including the surge, the upcoming general election and if the parliament should be 50/50 in terms of gender balance.
In the middle of all that we got into the Cash for Access scandal and some of the other things going on at Westminster.
We also had a look back at the Yes campaign and what its legacy will be.
Up for discussion were what is becoming known as “The Surge”, the prospects of the often mentioned Yes Alliance, new leaders and deputy leaders for the SNP and Scottish Labour, how much we all love Jim Murphy, the umpteenth promise of House of Lords reform and what (possibly) someone else buys when they go to the shops for Ed Miliband.
I also had a couple of choice words about Dick Cheney.
The other day I tweeted a question regarding how Better Together seemed to have ex-directory numbers and were calling them during the last-minute phone campaigning.
Well, it seems they had access to some people’s addresses that they maybe shouldn’t have as well.
I’ll let the person who informed me about it explain…
…the personalised address printed for me on the letter is wrong, and wrong in a strange way. It is not an address I have used/given for anything, and certainly isn’t the one on the electoral roll for me.
To repeat, the letter came with a personalised address – with his name on it. They weren’t just sending to every address randomly with no names.
So, like the ex-directory numbers, where were they getting these addresses from?
There’s no need to deal with the lies and other nonsense in the letter, as it was dealt with here.
