Welcome to my day… 14 December

Today’s an unusual day in this corner of LDV Towers. Away from the site, it’s my final day in a job I’ve been doing for more than eleven years – I start a new job on Monday. So, do forgive me if I’m not entirely on top of my game in terms of comment review…

We awake to news of another by-election gain, from the Conservatives, in Bilton ward, Harrogate, plus the news that Nick Clegg has declared the war on drugs to be lost.

Here on Liberal Democrat Voice, it’s an international day for the most part, with news from Europe, where our MEPs are busy in the run-up to Christmas, preparing for the Daily Mail’s inevitable story about new EU regulations on Christmas tree lights – there almost certainly aren’t any, but given the admission of the editor of the Daily Express, the facts aren’t likely to be allowed to get in the way of a good rant. We’ll also be taking a look at the impact of one short letter on the campaign for Scottish independence, and there’ll be more regrets over the Israel/Palestine dispute later this morning.

it’s the last week in the Lords before the Christmas break, and whilst barely a creature is stirring, except the mice, there is still a bit to report.

So, let Friday commence. And remember, Christmas is only eleven days away…

* Mark Valladares is today’s day editor. He’d really like someone to share the burden of running Fridays. Could it be you?

    At this moment the idea of a Labour/LibDem/SNP Coalition strikes me as potentially far more progressive than the current Coalition.

    I think the usual approach to immigration is completely backwards. People start by asking "how many immigrants can we tolerate?" and, once that is answered...
