  1. If I may say so, the interview with Rufus Hound was absolutely awesome.

    Seriously awesome.

    It makes such a refreshing change for someone who isn’t a professional politician to stand for political office: the intellectual honesty simply shines through, and stands in stark contrast to the sort of bollocks you get from the political classes.

    I’m generally pretty pessimistic about the state of politics in the UK, but listening to that interview gave me a rare moment of hope. Just think what might be achieved if we had a few more candidates for political office like Rufus who are articulate, have their hearts in the right place, and don’t come with all the baggage and dishonesty of the political classes.

    I shall definitely be voting for the NHA Party from now on.

  2. Thanks James et. al. for a great ‘cast
    Quality politician
    Best Mohammed image summary ever (I intend to be offended regularly)
    And Quality nerds
    (pity they won’t be touring the nerd neglected “deep north” of Australia)
    I have sent it widely
    and itune sucked up.
    And Guiltily sent off the first $ for a long time
    “222” you certainly lined all the ducks up this time
    Thanks again mate
