Vince on Any Questions  
Vince Cable was on Any Questions just now, a repeat from last night. Mat and I both went awwwwwwwww at the same point ♥ LOL Although my head knows that Vince is only getting such fangirling from most of the press because they know he's temporary, I think it's lovely that he's enjoying himself and he's being utterly adorable about having to step down.

Fantastic response on prisons, well backed up by statistics, and completely blowing the Tory out of the water. I love that the Green lady kept saying "as Vince has said" LOL. YAY for Vince shoehorning ID cards in too ;) Although "High Tech Bungle" sounds like something off a new series of Rainbow.

Nick Herbert is such a tosser isn't he? What a brainless herbert. Why are people applauding him?

My problems with the anthem are manyfold (although I'm not a republican; remind me to do that post at some point):
- it's a dirge (to quote matgb
- the whole idea of God having anything to do with Britishness is 1, inaccurate in our secular society and 2, personally annoying to me
- it's divisive: the Scots, the Welsh and the Northern Irish don't like to sing it (oooh, I'm disagreeing with Vince)
But, changing it would be a pain in the arse. If there was one song that everyone could agree on then that would be fine, but there isn't - I like both Rule Britannia and Jerusalem (to a lesser extent) but I know people who hate both - and until we have a concrete proposal for a replacement, I don't think that discussing scrapping the current one is helpful.

Vince is back on form for the 42 days, though. Still nobody making the Douglas Adams ref.
