My local paper is now running a video blog by my MP, she spent nearly 10 mins explaining to us that 'everything is very difficult' - 'everything will take a very long time' and that she's working hard to do nothing much, but there was a clip of her having some coffee with the kind of aged, withered tory grande dames that put her in her seat in the first place. They were having a conversation about the bedroom tax, which none of the people at the table understood - but were frightened it effect their property prices. They were quickly reassured that it might have the opposite effect.
If you get the chance - Distant Voices, Still Lives is available on iPlayer for a week from today, it's an exceptional film and worth 2 hours of your life.
