Bad taste?

Clint Eastwood's American Sniper film breaks records after opening ... over Martin Luther King Jr weekend.

I know it is hard to find a day in the US that isn't commemorating some famous person wasn't being killed by an idiot with a gun.

But surely they could not have chosen the second most famous sniper style killing in US history?

Cameron demands Greens are included in election debates

David Cameron insists the Greens are included in any pre-election TV debates. Otherwise, he won't participate:
The PM has refused to participate unless the broadcasters' initial plans are changed to include the Green Party.

Mr Miliband told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that the debates should go ahead "with or without" Mr Cameron, who he claimed was "running scared". 
Mr Cameron says the broadcasters' plans are unfair.
Common sense decency, or a blatant attempt to scupper debates he's scared of participating in?

I suggest third option: Cameron is playing a very smart game here.

If he insists the greens (on 5%) are included, he knows he won't be excluded when his party's ratings hit the same level.

At the time, the Filthy Lying Tory Scums brayed and gibbered and claimed this was woefully unambitious and their plan was much better.

Now, they're putting "The deficit halved" on their campaigning posters, as if completely failing to meet their target while achieving precisely what Labour set out to do was something for them to brag about:

And it turns out the road shown in the poster is in Germany, not Britain!

What are we to make of this? There can only be one conclusion!

In essence, Cameron's telling us he wishes Hitler had won. Hang the traitor! His next PR campaign will be encouraging employment, based around the idea that "Work will set you free." I think we know who pinched the gates of from Dachau.

Going to try to get into the blogging thing again (ha!) what with anew PM, an election coming up and all that. So today I thought I'd st...
