    A perfect coalition. You’d certainly get my vote.

    Hmm, working on a half-baked gag about Grant cuts versus Grant promotions, but it’s not quite holding together.
    Congrats you two (and the others) on a tremendous campaign. Got lots of mentions (and a slide) at TAM London.

  4. Mike Fowler says:

    If I hadn’t already left the country, I’d be promising to do so now. Excuse me now, that’s Mr S. Connery chapping at my door.

  5. Jennifer Rohn says:

    Who presented the slide, Matt? In what context? Just curious.

    At my upcoming Hallowe’en party, I’m planning to decorate the house with such scary images as Sarah Palin, Stephen Harper, and the Pope. I may be adding this image to the set.
    Congratulations on a great campaign! My parents both signed the petition (I wasn’t eligible) and said they’d read about the rally in the papers.

  8. Richard P. Grant says:

     Hah hah! Brilliant. Just be sure to be clear that Jenny is PM, not me.
    Thanks for the congrats, and getting your folks to sign. Which papers was it in? MSM coverage seemed a little lacking, apart from the radio—although we must have been heard in the Corridors of Power. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    They didn’t say, but they usually read the Guardian, Independent, and Yorkshire Evening Press.

  10. Richard P. Grant says:

     Ah, it’ll be those pesky Tykes at the YEP.

  11. Erika Cule says:

    This just out…

  12. Richard P. Grant says:

     What’s their source? A cash freeze is probably the best we could have hoped for, although as Imran points out it’s a 10% cut in real terms.

  13. Richard P. Grant says:

     Woohoo! We’re on Canadian telly! See 5:12 in at  http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/News/TV_Shows/The_National/1233408557/ID=1618838637

  14. Cath Ennis says:

    Woohoo! The National is a proper serious programme n’all. I’d watch it tonight, but there’s hockey on…

    >"Who presented the slide, Matt?"
    Evan Harris during a short presentation of the various policy campaigns championed by skeptics, scientists, rationalists, etc.

  16. Richard P. Grant says:

     Ah… well, I think Science is Vital has done Evan Harris a few favours.
