Ways to Irritate Polly Toynbee: No 94
Can there be a more irritating columnist that Polly Toynbee? On a one to one basis I have to say she's rather nice, but the self-rightousness that oozes from her keyboard never fails to grate. One of my proudest moments was doing a paper review on Breakfast with Frost with her and completely skewering her on Iraq. She wasn't pleased. Anyway, the reason for all this is to alert you to a new blog dedicated to countering the Toynbee line and checking her facts for her (because Alan Rusbridger is clearly far too busy having tea with Mrs David Mills). So do visit Factchecking Pollyanna. If only to irritate her. You know you want to.
