It’s the old man’s birthday today, so we went to the pub and bought him pie. Upon returning, I discovered that Old Rosie isn’t particularly conducive to Good Bloggin’. So here’s some stuff:

  • Don Paskini didn’t like the Tom Harris thing much, either.
  • Max Bergmann points out that it’s Britain – not the United States – which is making the ‘special relationship’ a little less special.
  • It turns out that you can run opinion polls anywhere these days. Spencer Ackerman interprets the results from the tribal areas of Pakistan.
  • How do you beat the Taliban? Give ’em all iPhones. They can’t get enough of ’em.
  • It’s a few days old now, but Monbiot’s piece on prisons is very good.
  • Over at Tikkun, Jerome Slater has penned one of the strongest, most thorough critiques of Israel’s attack on Gaza that I’ve read.
  • Menzies Campbell argues for 5 liberal freedoms.
  • Could ecstacy be a treatment for PTSD?
  • John S. Wilkins continues demolishing the Darwin myths.
  • Red Pepper talks to the fabulous novelist David Peace.
  • Miley Cyrus is going to destroy Radiohead…

…And, because you’re all crazy for chanteuses who sing in French and fill their songs with whistling and trumpets and stuff, here’s a chanteuse who sings in French and fills her songs with whistling and trumpets and stuff.
