Changes

David Cameron’s first conference speech as Tory leader held few surprises. It was light on policy, with no mention of Europe, immigration or the Middle East. He was, however, full of praise for several of the Blair government’s achievements, pledging to uphold those labour-instigated measures that worked. Indeed, last night some senior politicians compared his performance to early Blair conference addresses (his pitch to his party that it has to come to terms with new realities). His “best is yet to come” punchline did come suspiciously close to Labour’s 1997 “things can only get better” handle.

Endless Love?

Always tease tease tease
Siempre – coqetiando y enganyando
You’re happy when I’m on my knees
Me arrodilla y estas feliz
One day is fine, next is black
Un dias bien el otro negro
So if you want me off your back
Al rededar en tu espalda
Well come on and let me know
Me tienes que desir
Should I Stay or should I go?
Me debo ir o que darme

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An’ if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know… — The Clash

“John The Revelator”

I found this unofficial animated music video for Depeche Mode’s latest single, from the album “Playing The Angel”, on Youtube

It was created for non-commercial purposes and without the consent of the band or the label, by someone calling him/herself “Violator of the Regime”.

It took the director 3-4 months working evenings and weekends to produce and the result is extremely impressive.

The visual interpretations of the song’s lyrics and the political views expressed are solely those of the director, a Depeche Mode fan and outraged American.

I love people who do things without consent — keep on Violator.

What Tony said to Snoop Dogg

With the number of dead British soldiers in the Afghanistan/Iraq theatres mounting it is an interesting fact that Prime Minister Tony Blair has so far been conspicuous by his absence from any military funeral.

He did, however, find time to do some shmoozing at Monday night’s Adidas party in the Sky Bar of the Mondrian Hotel, Hollywood, with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg and several Premiership footballers.

This, according to the Guardian’s Tim Dowling, is what went down.

The prime minister sips a cocktail while admiring the view. Snoop Dogg approaches.

Snoop Dogg: Yo, Blair.

Tony Blair: You know, I really wish people would stop saying that, it’s just … oh, hello. Puff Daddy, is it?

SD: Call me Snoop.

TB: Always changing your names, you lot. Can’t keep up.

SD: Fo’ shizzle ma nizzle.

TB: Hmm.

SD: Dat middle east bizzle is out of control.

TB: Well, it not quite as simple as that, you see.

SD: Need a immediate ceasefire, multinational security force in South Lebanon, political framework for a lasting settlement.

TB: Yes, of course. I’m down with that, obviously [attempts a complicated handshake with Snoop. Snoop declines].

SD: You need to get Bush to move on this, him and Condolizzle, got to do the bizzle.

TB: Well I am hoping to persuade them to take a more …

SD: Can’t be the president’s bitch all the time.

TB: Look, I don’t think it’s fair to say I’m his bitch. I find the insinuation, frankly, rather whack.

SD: Time to rethink the whole strategizzle, put together a new agenda on poverty, trade, climate, whatever. All that shit.

TB: Which is, I think you’ll find, more or less what I told the World Affairs Council just …

SD: The World Affairs Council is WAC. Marinate on that, prime mizzle.

TB: Obviously I’ll be marinating on a lot of things between now and … perhaps you’d like to come to Britain in the near future to discuss these ideas further, perhaps speak at the party conference like my close personal friend Bono.

SD: No can do. My boyz got into it at Heathrow duty-free and I been banned.

TB: That was you? You’re Ice T?

SD: I’m a Diet Sprite actually, but if you’re goin to the bar …
