Paul Uppal - the unanswered questions

My local MP managed, as you know, to put secretary's pen to paper in response to my letter, after a mere 3 and a half months, and still managed to avoid the substantive questions (i.e. how is democracy served by limiting school policy to an electorate of 2: the head teacher and the Secretary of State for Education?).

But never mind that; clearly he's not going to engage in actual debate. What I'm waiting for now is his reply to another letter I sent him a few weeks ago. Poor Paul told the House of Commons (and again) that he's a 'victim' of electoral fraud. I asked him if he's reported his evidence or suspicions to the police, because if he hasn't, it looks like a naughty bit of irresponsible political posturing. After all, there's only been one case in the West Midlands in the last 5 years, and that was two Tory councillors in Walsall.

Time to put up or shut up, Paul.

Very good.

Voley, when I click on your blog it comes up with an AVG thingy telling me its blocked something that you've clearly linked to on here.

Taken a photo of what I mean here (click on "View Full Size" for it in its full glory)


PS. It was "Superstition" if you were wondering. I'm more of a Smokey Robinson man though.

Thanks Ewar - I've dropped Dear J a line. Weird though - he hasn't changed his blog for a few weeks now. Anyone else getting this fault?
Good use of Twitter!

Yeah, I've been getting the same thing for a week or so now.

OK, I'll delete James's blog link and see what happens. Let me know OK?
