haircut

do we even *have* a concept of treason in this country?

One of the more rabid and non-linear anti-Lisbon groups gave a predictable performance to a government subcommittee on the Lisbon referendum yesterday. I agree with the committee chairman: if they didn't go there to have a reasonable discussion, they're doing themselves and their supporters a disservice - even if I think that those supporters are utterly misguided and would do well to at least row in behind a less wingnut-oriented anti-Lisbon group. The important part of having people representing your views is that you need to make sure that they're actually doing so effectively.
