It's not just me, everyone here sees policy debate in HP terms!  
"It's almost as if the GST is the Lord Voldermort of the tax debate – it cannot be named."
Saul Eslake, Australian economist, 7.30 Report, ABC

Utterly snowed under with work until the 14th, but general hugs to you all! Especially to groolover who gave Fathers its first rec, thank you, dear! I've been looking at folding bikes, I actually COULD cycle to see you! (Er, from York, not from Sydney, that would be crazy! And involve many laps of a cargo ship ...)

I have to admit, I laughed out loud when he said that!

I am so tickled every time HP works its way into popular culture. Quidditch jokes, wand jokes, HP sexual innuendos - all squee-inducing. When HP makes its way in to politics? WHEEEEE!

(I LMAO at the "Voldemort/McCain '08" bumper stickers.

Brilliant! I love that HP-references are everywhere.

The *first* one?!? How ridiculous. There should have been lots!

I'll be very impressed indeed if you cycle all the way from York - they do allow bikes on the trains :p

If it's under 100km and not up a mountain, it's an easy day's ride! (Of course, this opinion is absolutely subject to review once I check out the actual roads and likelihood of death thereon ;-))

Well, there's the little matter of the Pennines in between York and here :p
