British Parliament Rocks My World
I just watched 10 minutes of a broadcast on C-SPAN from the British House of Commons, where Tony Blair was being peppered with questions by his fellow pols on Wednesday. Say what you will about Blair and Labor and lapdogs, but at least this guy can speak without someone else having to write him a script. Plus, how come our Congressional debates are so damned dry and polite and canned? The House of Commons is like black church, crowded and with everyone shouting out approval or booing at will. There are plenty of TV shows this shit could destroy in terms of ratings. Now spread the word!
