Dick Gaughan's A Different Kind of Love Song is probably the worst album he's ever recorded. It's over-produced and too many of the tracks are too preachy to be tolerable even to an old leftie. There are a couple of fine Leon Rosselson covers though, including the very fine Stand Up For Judas.

So Stephane Dion is the new leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. I don't really feel very strongly about this. I didn't care for any of the candidates. I guess I'm relieved that they didn't pick MachiavelliMichael Ignatieff. Anyone who can come up with over intellectual rationalisations of the immoral and intolerable when not in power shouldn't be allowed to hold public office anywhere at any time. Still that's now, what, four leaders from Quebec in a row (excepting a couple of minutes of John Turner).* One day the Liberals will have to realise that Canadian politics is about more than Quebecois fratricide and how deep one's nose is in the trough. Not this time though.

*This is roughly equivalent to every Labour leader since 1960 being a Scot.
