The long Blarwell

No wonder the audience at Blair's timetable-for-departure speech were pleased to see him; they'd been tortured waiting for him to turn up. Radio Five Live had listed the music played to the waiting delegates, and it isn't pretty. In no particular order:

Mambo #5 (Louie Vega)
Beautiful Day (U2 - close personal friends, of course)
Reach For The Stars (yes, S Club)
Lifted (Lighthouse Family)
Missing (Everything But The Girl - presumably in the hope that we'll miss him like the Deserts miss the rain.)

And every one of them a hit after Blair became party leader but before the arrival of Bush, i.e. when Blair was actually *popular*. Funny that.

Funny how they didn't play "Things Can Only Get Better" this time...

in related news... have you seen yesterday's hilarious Early Day Motion from parliament.

Apparently copyright should be extended because the average salary of a musician is £15,000. I'm not quite sure I even remotely understand their logic there. Can anyone explain it to me?
