Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Democracy in Action
I have tried doing this. It is really quite easy and fun.
The House of Commons switchboard number is 0207 219 3000. You just have to say "hullo, could you put me through to the office of", and then say the name of an MP. After a short period on hold, you will get through to (15% of the time according to my trials) the MP him or herself, or (35% of the time) a helpful (90%) or stroppy (10%) assistant, or (50% of the time) voicemail.
Once you're through, all the information you need to convey is:
* The asylum for Iraqis speaker meeting is on October 9th from 7-9pm
* It will take place in Committee Room 14
* There will be media coverage
* Speakers will include a British soldier who hired many of the employees
* You are a constituent (if this is true) and you would very much appreciate it if your MP would either attend, or send a message of support.
I'd very much appreciate it if readers could take three minutes out of their day to call their MPs.
