<a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/edinburgh_and_east/7710999.stm>Labour win Glenrothes by-election</a>.

This is really weird. Not just that people are voting for Labour... Every pundit going, every poll, every exit ballot had the SNP winning by about 1,500. Even Labour MPs were convinced they'd lose. So what the hell happened? Are people really that easily swayed by Gordon Brown turning up on their doorstep?

The PM (and his wife) don't historically do doorstepping for by-elections. They did this time, and won. Does that mean Brown's going to be expected to go traipsing round every by-election seat, or people will complain their seat isn't as important to him as the one next-door to his? Heh.

In other news, Hazel Blears has gone mad again. <A href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7712275.stm">People can't wait for ID cards</a>, apparently. "The cards will be available for all from 2012 but she said: "I regularly have people coming up to me and saying they don't want to wait that long." "

You should probably talk to someone about the little people in your head, Hazel. Especially if they're mad enough to want ID cards.

What? What? I mean, what?

Is there no comment option to let her know that she *really* doesn't understand the science of this?

If I put a CD into a jiffy bag and send it through the post to a friend, she won't find a monster hybrid popping through her letterbox with the head of the Queen on it singing Dixie Chicks songs...

In other similar news, Greenpeace speaks out against nuclear fusion while clearly having as much understanding of the engineering and physics of it as a slug has of the Eleventh-century Japanese Tale of Genji and Lady Murasaki.
