Podcast - 3 MAY 2006

A new podcast is up today - to listen, click on the 'Podcast' link under Blog Links at right. It is about five and a half minutes long (if you still see a link to the previous podcast at right, you may need to refresh your browser).

This time I have devoted the programme to two broad areas as a continuation of a post I wrote about a week ago:
- Home Secretary Charles Clarke and his alleged incompetence, particularly in connection with his lack of effective management of the activities of the Home Office in the light of recent revelations that over a thousand foreign criminals were released back into the community on completing their sentences, rather than deportation having been considered in most cases;
- the general public hilarity surrounding the extra-marital affair(s) of Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and the way this issue, rather than the Home Office's failings seem to have become the focus of more criticism in the lead-up to this week's local government election in England.

As ever, if you have comments on today's podcast (clarity, content, etc), do let me know.
