    Did you see the New Zealand Barbarians game? Absolute cracker in terms of entertainment.
    Australia Barbarians you mean? Yes, that was pretty good too, Stuart Barnes more moany than usual but a good game.

    It's been a pretty good afternoon sports-wise with that and Der Klassiker, and then we get to listen to the abomination that is US rugby commentary.

    Yeah, there may have been a reason for that, I suspect that he had a hangover; he was at a rather lively Cornish rugby fundraising dinner/party in London until late last night/this morning. It was nice to see a bit of flair in the game, as they had nothing to lose.

    Yeah, watch it on mute

    Want to call corruption here but I cant belive that they aren't smart enough to realise that this looks worse then the scandal it's self.

    Well isn't the BBC independent of the government? And again surely they know it'd do more harm then good?

    in theory yeah, though you wouldn't know it from watching BBC news. MP's think they are above the law already so I doubt they care.

    Is the Prime Minister embarrassed that an independent MP wrote out the proposals for the Presidential system, beating his party and the other traitors to it?
    He'd been planning those proposals since before the election anyway. Saves us the trouble.

    I didn't say anything that would suggest that. It wasn't a race. The MP in question actively sought Government support and the proposals were discussed within the Government before presentation to the House. It would be ridiculous of us to lay claim to M_L's good work.

    The original slapdash bill should have included it. But that was beyond a disaster so I won't go there again.

    It should have included some useful info about how it would work after.

    Your party won the most recent election and we have a Green PM! That is if you're still happy in the Greens
