Sting of Myself - The New Yorker
How it works in US politics. "The Watergate burglars look good compared to these guys[...] These guys can’t even figure out how to use an Internet browser, let alone conduct an undercover operation".

Iain Macwhirter: Shame on the SNP for choosing to park its conscience (From Herald Scotland)
I am not remotely surprised by this, just disappointed. It happened to the Lib Dems and now it's happening, in slightly less car-crash fashion, to the SNP. It will happen any time a party becomes mainstream and/or gets a sniff at the corridors of power. Radicalism is about pushing the envelope: it seems we need to start pushing a little harder again.

Guy Fawkes wasn't a freedom fighter. He was a religious terrorist, and not even one of the good ones | New Statesman
"Guy Fawkes was a religious terrorist, and not even one of the most important ones. He was the Jacobean equivalent of one of the minor characters from Four Lions."

pick-up lines for feminists - Lesley Kartali - Lodestar Quarterly
#ActivistPickupLines was briefly a hashtag meme on the twitters today. (My contributions: "What's your sign? mines says `TORIES OUT'", and "Girl you must be tired cuz u've been a capitalist running dog all day".) Of course somebody has already done it better. Congratulations, Lesley Kartali. You are the Simpsons of the twitters.

The Swinson List | East Dunbartonshire SSP
Jo Swinson calls for a boycott. Neil Scott responds with a list of everything else he's also boycotting. We need more principled, morally upright campaigners. Assuming that they're not too weak from lack of food.

CoastguardSOS | Updates from the CoastguardSOS Campaign
"Our aim is to continue to raise greater awareness of Government plans to close 50% of the UK’s Coastguard Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centres and to campaign for the retention of all stations." With the southwest of England underwater, now might be a good time not to devastate essential services.

Police Opt Out Of Accountability
Yeah, they can apparently do this. They shoot a guy to death for no reason, and then choose not to cooperate with the subsequent investigation.

Police raid activist’s home for ‘criminal’ posts on Facebook. China? No – Wales « Pride's Purge
I haven't seen the Facebook posts in question, and the activist in question is with DPAC about whom I know some of you have reservations, but this is yet another increasingly blatant attempt to put the frighteners on someone for (probably) legitimate speech.

People’s Petition Against Austerity – Sign now
"The failed policies of the politicians and the bankers caused the financial crisis. Spending cuts are driving us into poverty. An economic alternative is essential to protect ordinary people, and to save the NHS and welfare state." You know what to do.

What’s wrong with Charity Workfare? | Boycott Workfare
I've been conflicted on this. Obviously it's worse when giant corporations who don't need the money do it, but that doesn't mean it's not still bad. Good to see Boycott Workfare riding the last scintilla of doubt out of town.

In support of the UK Uncut street party outside Nick Clegg's house
Not mentioned: I hardly think that "holding a street party" can be considered an "extreme tactic" now that we're forbidden to protest outside the Government building he wasn't elected to.
