BRIT POLITICS WATCH: Our friends in the Henry Jackson Society have interesting takes on David Cameron's first foreign policy speech, on comparing the labels lib con with neo-con, and Thailand's passage from parliamentary democracy to Lord Protectorship. (Which of course calls to mind the instructive and edifying tale of Cromwell's head, an deargamadán.)

Second, I'd like to see where this goes. 18 Doughty Street, billing itself as Britain's first political internet TV channel, is giving 100 camcorders away to citizen journalist reporters to promptly sell them on eBay have strong views and firsthand knowledge of policy issues - doctors on NHS reform (smile, Mrs O'Leary, this is for my podcast), ex-servicemen to talk on forces overstretch (can you hold that position just a bit longer, Mr Hussein), and other people like trade unionists and hoodies (insert your own joke in the comments section).

And OxBlog's drinking buddy BritPundit is picking on BoJo again. Meanie. :) He also weighs in on our Clinton-Remnick debate here on OxBlog, saying 'A vast chunk of the article deals with Clinton's post-Presidential role fighting the spead of AIDS (it's actually more critical than you'd think), and this gets no mention at all.' Clearly preparing the ground for a postdoctoral guest bloggership on OxBlog, I'd say.
