Lunatic named Venezuela’s Information Minister [see update]

Francisco Toro at Caracas Chronicles reports:
Miguel Ángel Pérez Pirela has just been named [Venezuela's] Information Minister.
If you don’t know who this is, picture a commie Glenn Beck, but way, way nuttier. Basically a paranoid schizophrenic has now been tapped to run the chavista propaganda machine.

What Do Lord Gilbert and Ralph Nader Have In Commmon?

In 1975, as Minister of Transport, the then John Gilbert introduced the Road Traffic (Seat Belts) Bill to Westminster. Although unsuccessful, five years later the 1981 Transport Act made the wearing of front seat belts compulsory.
Ralph Nader’s 1965 publication, Unsafe at Any Speed had a more dramatic effect on US road safety.

Respect’s Catherine Higgins loses in Manchester Central

The remarkable Catherine Higgins, Respect’s candidate in the Manchester Central by-election, has lost what was surely a hard-fought election to Labour’s Lucy Powell.
Higgins finished ninth, with 1.09 percent of the vote, nonetheless crushing tenth-place candidate Howling Laud Hope of the Monster Raving Loony William Hill party, who received only 0.47 percent of the vote.
