New Marf Cartoon and Nighthawks is now open

Home of the web’s best political conversation

Why not relax, and converse into the night on the day’s events in PB NightHawks.

If you’re a lurker, why not delurk tonight?

Marf’s cartoon discusses one of the major topics of the day, The Clash between Andrew Mitchell and The Police in Downing Street last year. I wonder if the title of Andrew Mitchell’s biography will be I Fought The Law (and Law fought back), given the stories in links 5, 6 and 7, I wonder if some in the Police force will be considering their positions and thinking, Should I Stay, or Should I Go?
