10 comments on “Elections abolished (?)”

  1. Brilliant spoof, because it’s so plausible. You obviously aren’t too concerned about getting your DFID job back then?

  2. Very Good! I particularly like the links at the right “Watch scenes from the last ever parliamentary debate”, “How freedom helps terrorism”, “Be very afraid”

  3. Brilliant – and really rather chilling, because it doesn’t take a huge leap of the imagination to see Blair doing exactly that – to ensure his legacy, of course…
    Thanks for this, and congratulations on a very elegant site.
