Democrats Offer National Security “Plan” -- If the Busheviks and the GOP have one winning card to play against the Democrats in November, it is the public’s belief that the Democrats are worse at national security than the Republicans. In an attempt to overtake the Republicans on this front, the Democratic Party put out its own “plan” for real security. Well, not really a plan, it’s more like a list of stuff that might help.

House of Lords Caves on UK ID Cards -- The House of Lords allowed the Blair government to move Britain a bit closer down the road to 1984 yesterday. Having 5 times refused to sanction the Blairite demand for ID cards for everyone over the age of 16, the peers finally compromised with the devil. If Their Lordships see no need to stop this, perhaps the wrong guys bought titles, and the case for outright abolition, rather than reform, becomes much more plausible.

NASDAQ Withdraws London Stock Exchange Offer -- The American NASDAQ stock market has withdrawn its offer to buy the London Stock Exchange (LSE, not to be confused with the London School of Economics). At the same time, NASDAQ has said it reserves the right to make a new and lower bid in the future. The reason for the withdrawal seems to be worries that the price just wasn’t right at this time.

Royal Regiment of Scotland Replaces 400 Years of History -- Wednesday was the 373rd anniversary of the formation of the Royal Scots regiment, the oldest active regiment in the British Army. It was also the day it ceased to exist along with the Black Watch, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, the Royal Highland Fusiliers, the King's Own Scottish Borderers and the Highlanders. They are now mere battalions in the Royal Regiment of Scotland.
