What a coincidence…

The General Election is to take place on my 60th birthday. The downside is that it is also Tony Blair’s birthday!

Today the UK government finally confirmed the date of the next General Election – May 6. Here in Britain the Prime Minister has to visit the Queen to announce his intention to dissolve Parliament and hold an election. That means that Parliament will cease all activity in a few days  and then campaigning will begin in earnest. At present, the outcome is anyone’s guess.

Tonight (while nobody is paying attention!) Parliament will likely pass a new bill that will outlaw file-sharing in the UK. There has been a lot of controversy about this bill but it will probably pass into law before Parliament rises.
