England's mighty cricket team

Well, a mighty performance by the England cricket team, who swept their opponents aside.

What? No, I'm not being sarcastic. It was a very good performance. Another step to the final at Lord's on the 21st. OK, India weren't that good, but

What do you mean "we're playing India next"? Oh... wait, that'll be the men you're thinking about. I'm talking of the women's team. Who actually are pretty good. And by far the best chance of an England cricket fan having a team to support in the Twenty20 semis and final.

Blue nation

Well, I'm sure Cameron must be delighted. Despite containing a certain number of toffs with duck islands, moats, and houses that look like Balmoral which we have no right to ask them how they paid for, the Tories seem to be doing very, very well at the council elections.

Labour are tanking, naturally (deservedly?), but I had hoped the Lib Dems might at least put up a fight. But no.

So it's Tory, Tory, Tory. The rich get richer, the working classes are obsolete. I'd be more depressed if that wasn't what we'd had for 12 years under Labour anyway. Chances of the Tories noticing that laissez-faire free market ideology has caused a major worldwide recession? Not a lot.
