Daily View 2×2: 21 January 2010

1920s woman in silk kimono smoking using a cigarette holderGood morning and welcome to Daily View. If you submit a tax return, there are hardly any days left to get on with it.

On this day in 1908, New York City voted to ban women from smoking in public. Two years ago, Black Monday did a number on the world’s stock markets.

In birthdays, we sing a song to Commander in Chief star Geena Davis and Christian Dior, who were born today.

And in deaths, we remember George Orwell – and use him as an excuse to pimp this link – a cartoon that fears that when it comes to dystopias, it was Aldous Huxley who nailed it, rather than George Orwell.

The Telegraph has a rather depressing list of top ten recession proof careers. Corporate governance, anyone?

    Interesting New Statesman article.

    Liberal Democrat MPs and strategists are pushing for Clegg to rule out an alliance with the Tories

  • Not an interesting article at all – Nick’s already ruled out a coalition with either Labour or the Tories, and the argument about not working with a party whose values are diametrically opposed to our own applies equally to Labour as to the Tories. Next!

    Of course, if you want to believe this is just a pack of lies got up by the press, that’s your prerogative. But according to the article, the pressure is coming from senior people within the party.

    That was said by Clegg in answer to a question about which party the Lib Dems would _back_ in a hung parliament, though. So unless Clegg’s answer was a complete evasion, the interpretation’s hardly unreasonable!
