I don't think that a felon is allowed to run, here.

I blame the internet.

He'd run anyway.

Honestly, I truly blame the internet.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I was listening to this really insightful analysis of the shift in British politics that mirrors what's happening in the U.S.  Hopefully, you can get it to stream there.  https://www.newyorker.com/podcast/the-new-yorker-radio-hour/is-being-a-politician-the-worst-job-in-the-world

I'm currently repairing the Minister of State for Security's roof. Two things I have to avoid are: talking politics and red dots appearing on my overalls when I'm up on high.

Wow.  Did you have to get security clearance to do that?

No. I was recommended and his wife rang me directly.

They live local and are very nice people. I visited to assess the work and his wife did say that there were cameras all over the property which I assume are MI5 or similar. It then struck me when I was on the roof that it could look like I was "going in". I mentioned to the scaffolder to let me know if he saw any little red dots appear on me and I'd put my hands up. We were laughing about it really, so don't take me too seriously.

Generally speaking MPs are just regular people living in regular houses. In this case though, as Mr Tugendhat is no fan of Russia or China, his security is beefed up.

I suppose I'd have to add Novichok to the things I have to avoid.
