If I hear "Approved by the Fees Office" one more time ...

I'm afraid cognitive dissonance set in today when I heard on the news that there was "another blow for Gordon Brown" as "Hazel Blears resigns from cabinet". It seems to me that ought to be positive news for him. But I have to say it's become such a disintegrating shambles that I reluctantly agree that a General Election is probably necessary sooner rather than later, though I also doubt it will happen until the last possible moment.

I don't really see any reason to trust this lot (in a non-party sense) to put in place any measures to sort out the expenses fiasco; but I'm not sure that a new lot would be intrinsically any less self-serving. I get most of my news from the broadcase media, and I note they've been very quiet on the European gravy-train all this time, when what's coming up is ... European elections. Is that just irredeemable, or is it that no-one knows or cares who their MEPs are or what they do, so it's just not newsworthy?
