    Voting for them is the only option a west Oxford boy has sadly. In East Oford where I used to live it was Red as Labour get. The Peoples Republic of East Oxford.  

    the intelligence community is no longer geared towards telling the president what they think the president wants to hear

      I second your comments on East Oxford. Sadly, its MP, Andrew Smith, is in a tough fight this time around against a Lib Dem challenger. Quite a few of my friends live in East Oxford and are worried - Smith is by all accounts an excellent MP who knows his community very well and has shown integrity by voting against his party on some very contentious issues - on Trident for example.

      Sadly his constituency has been redrawn to include more of the Oxford colleges, and with Peter Mandelson suggesting cuts to university funding, students (and I'm speaking as somebody who starts university this fall) are pretty angry with Labour at the moment.
