The Artful Dodger and 38 Degrees

This ad appeared in some British newspapers earlier this week. It was made by 38 degrees,
an organisation that is also raising funds through the internet.  

This is what they believe in. I believe in that too.


We believe that it's people who should have the power in our society. We help make this happen by making it easy for people to influence the institutions, like the government, who make decisions that affect us all.

We work together in our thousands to defend fairness, protect rights, promote peace, preserve the planet and deepen democracy. Some people might call those goals ‘liberal’, 'left-of-centre' or ‘progressive’. We call them common sense for a better world.

On a related note, I recently came across a postcard of David Cameron talking to Santa Claus: '... but do the poor deserve presents?'

Thanks Sean. Feel free to repeat what others blog, I always.

No presents for the poor, we're all in this together and that includes Santa, the Elves and the reindeer (just so long as they don't come seeking economic asylum here after they're made redundant).
