Tom Harris uses his And another thing... blog as an outlet for opinions, jokes, musings and whimsy about a range of subjects including but not only politics. If you believe that politicians take themselves too seriously, you might enjoy it. If you think they should take themselves very seriously indeed, or shouldn t have any interests outside politics, I would avoid it, frankly. Try John Redwood. Tom has been a Labour MP since 2001, and was a minister at the Department for Transport from September 2006 until October 2008. He has a number of obsessive interests, including Doctor Who, science fiction in general, the music of Genesis, The X-Factor and any other old rubbish that comes into my head. Oh, and politics.
