A tip if you’re about to become a Labour supporter: don’t, whatever you do, give the party your email address. Every time Tony Blair gives a speech important enough to have been trailed on the Today Programme two days beforehand he feels the need to send you an over-sized bleeding Word attachment so you can share his thoughts. Look, Tone, mi old mucker—now that I’m a council candidate that’s what I can call him—look Tone, mate, I agree with you already. I’m the only person in the party who does (except about PFI and Diana Spencer, of course). Just stop with the bloated, proprietary word processor files!
