Welcome to my day… 18 January

Yes, it’s Friday and we start with the news that, according to Animal Planet, sea otters are the cutest animals in the world (say those last three words as Jeremy Clarkson would, why don’t you?). Hat-tip to Stephen Tall, whose devotion to his Popbitch feed appears to be a thing of beauty (but not as cute as a sea otter, of course).

The overnight by-election news is… unknown as I write this. Hopefully, when daylight comes to Creeting St Peter, I’ll have more news…

Sea otterSo, what do we have today? In keeping with our usual Friday pattern, there’s some European news, and next week’s preview of business in the House of Lords. However, we welcome back Dave Hennigan, not just to Liberal Democrat Voice but to the Party, which just goes to show what Labour can achieve in our northern cities, as he demonstrates. Alasdair Murray looks at the IPPR’s report on migration policy, and Richard Morris has a few cautionary words on the subject of our poll ratings.

There’s a nod to a giant of twentieth century liberalism, courtesy of Kirsty Williams, whilst Guy Verhofstadt doesn’t think that David Cameron is the Messiah, and says so rather bluntly. And finally, we may have the Friday Five this week. Yes, I know, it’s been a bit erratic of late, but we’re all really busy…

    I enjoy this start to Friday. As Mark says, it provides a frame for the day’s content and projects warmth and fellowship.
