Lobbying Bill; Raedwald unscathed

It seems that the Raedwald blog will not have to register as a political party after all, and can continue to lecture the miscreants of the Political Class without further interference from the Electoral Commission.

Which is a pity, really. I was rather looking forward to encouraging 44,600,000 voters (the UK electorate less the 400,000 who are members of the big 3) each to start their own party with one member and all register with the Electoral Commission and submit the wad of forms and returns required ....

Actually, the poor Electoral Commission have already said they won't even be able to cope with the limited restrictions already made. That's a shame.

Quite often, organisations need to be more careful what they wish for. This and the last government still frequently trip over the laws of "unintended consequenses".

The English idiom for making a mess of things is a dog's dinner, Mr T i n g e y, not dog's 'breakfast'.

Dog's bollocks to anonymous ...
From someone whose ancestors have been English sine 1685 (at least)
Others were here MUCH EARLIER than that

Mr T i n g e y I was was not questioning your English - ness, however now that you mention it how can anyone be 'English since 1685' and keep a straight face.

Note: the English idiom 'dog's bollocks', as in "that's the dog's bollocks, that is" means something is above average and rather special.
