Fingers crossed I'll snare some people in to reading this blog with its almost sexy sounding title. It's fair to say though that 'friends on benefits' is a lot different to 'friends with benefits'. Simply, having a 'friend on benefits' means only one person is getting fucked.

The election results at the start of the month came as quite a shock. With a Labour-SNP coalition taking the lead at the polls, a Tory majority seemed highly unlikely. However, winning just over 50% of the 650 seats, the Conservative party shamed the pollsters' predictions.

So, imagine that you and four mates are popping into ASDA on the way to a party. You've each got a quid, and you're heading for the 'one pound a can' offer in the drink aisle. When you get there you spot another sign - twenty cans for a fiver. What course of action makes best business sense?

We've hit the part of the General Election campaign that really starts to get on my nerves. The funny thing is, I genuinely think this vote could be one of the most interesting in the UK's history, given how disillusionment with large swathes of the political spectrum has resulted in no one party looking capable of gaining an overall majority...

The situation surrounding Prime Minister David Cameron and the will-he-won't-he with the TV election debates is fairly amusing from the outside, but it provides a huge insight into how politicians actually view the press.

In a world where the Mail points out the failures in a flagship Tory policy and the Guardian falsely eulogises it, it is hard to get a handle on the world around us.

You might be able, in the back rooms of Westminster, to convince one another that you can get away with a less-than-coherent health policy and rely on a lot of talk about the1930s to swing overwhelming public support for the NHS your party's way. But what the Labour Party needs now is a bit more Bevan-style fire in its belly.

Perhaps I'm being naive but I can no longer accept that things have to be the way they are now, that clobbering the poor and vulnerable is a rational answer to mending our future. We can do things another way, and in time I'm sure we will.
