I have a few things to share with you….

Avery Ant is running for Pope. I thought you should know.

Cleaning coins with Cillit BANG! This comes to us via the latest B3ta newsletter, and contains vital consumer information.

EPIC 2014. Yes, I’ve seen it, but people keep sending it. People like Toby. So we can assume from this that he missed me blogging it.. therefore we can assume that you may not have seen it either. So go and see it. If you haven’t already.

We have Mr Schmitt to thank for the glorious link Everything I Need To Know I’ve Learned From Iron Maiden. It looks a bit odd in Firefox, so you may have to crack it open in IE to read it properly… but the author still deserves an A. Well, an A-. Because of the Firefox thing, you understand.

Learn more about Lynton Crosby. He’s the Aussie the Tories have hired to mastermind their election strategy. I plan to kick his arse and Milburn’s in the coming weeks. Assuming I don’t get locked up for having suspected links to the Manningtree Animal Rights Collective first. (I found this article myself because I’m stalking Crosby with Google News Alerts. That’s the kind of thing suspected terrorists do when they have access to Teh Interwebs.)

Eliot Weinberger – What I Heard about Iraq

That’s a bloody good read, that is. Cheers to Pete for the link.

Finally, here’s today’s headline article from the Independent

Robert Fisk – This election will change the world. But not in the way the Americans imagined: America has insisted on these elections – which will produce a largely Shia parliament representing Iraq’s largest religious community – because they are supposed to provide an exit strategy for embattled US forces, but they seem set to change the geopolitical map of the Arab world in ways the Americans could never have imagined. For George Bush and Tony Blair this is the law of unintended consequences writ large.

Via Exit Strategy is on BBC One at 10:15pm on Sunday: As Iraq holds historic elections, Panorama presents a major film examining the state of Iraq today. Will the elections put the country on the road to peace – or push it deeper into war?

You may also want to catch T4 this Sunday (1pm, Channel 4) to see Tony Blair get down with Teh Kids.

That’s about it. For now. I hope to have an extra treat for you later. If you’re good.

UPDATE – The Guardian just reported that Iraq polling stations are already under attack.
