Dear bloggers,

it's that time of the month again when the hosting meter needs a few more pounds to keep the site ticking. We need £10 in the next few days, else everything goes black. With over 100 blogs listed, if each author donated just two pounds a year the site would stay alive. Why not make this month the month you help out?

Many thanks

Congratulations (again) to Jon Featonby, continuing to lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 12, having amassed a Chelsea-esque 729 points. That's enough to put John in the top 0.05% of the 3.5m global players of the league. Not bad. He's put a little space between himself and nearest rivals George Murray (709) and Sam Bowman (700). Just 84 points separates 10th and 1st places, though, so it's far from over.

Fiscal foolishness

[IMG: Budget Cuts sign with clouds and sky background] I've had an unusual and vaguely discomfiting experience. I found myself largely in agreement with a leader in the Economist. I may need a lie down. I can console myself with the thought that what the Economist is saying - that the Conservatives' fiscal plans for the next Parliament are damaging nonsense - would seem to be pretty much the majority, if not the consensus, view. Seeking to legislate to remove the deficit through slashing spending while at the same time delivering a tax cut is not the most impressively coherent ...

Figures released this week show that, in October, 55.5% of emergency responses to Category A (immediately life-threatening) calls arrived at the scene within 8 minutes - down from 58.9% in September 2014 and from 65.2% in October 2013 - well below the target of 65%. In England and Scotland the target for the same priority call is 75%. Some of these figures are absolutely shocking. If you live in Torfaen or Caerphilly, last month you had less than a 44% chance of getting an urgent ambulance within 8 minutes. The fact that the 65% target was met in just 3 ...

Politics of personality

The problem with elected Mayors, Commissioners etc. is that they turn the job into a personality contest.
