Full marks to Mr Straw for stating what to me seems bloomin' obvious:
Jack Straw, the ex-foreign secretary, has angered Muslim groups by suggesting women who wear veils can make relations between communities more difficult.
The Blackburn MP says the veil is a "visible statement of separation and of difference" and he asks women visiting his surgery to consider removing it.
and a slightly surprised "well done" to Mr Cameron for coming out so strongly in support of the NHS
Mr Cameron called the NHS was one of the 20th Century's greatest achievements.
"Tony Blair explained his priorities in three words: education, education, education," he told Tory activists in Bournemouth.
"I can do it in three letters: NHS."
I've got to say though, that however important the NHS is to me, it wouldn't ever get above, say, number 4 on my list of priorities...
