"Iain Dale is the Grandaddy of this political blog thing. I love his blog. I read it every day. It is witty, wry, challenging, on point, informative, entertaining and...as every blog should be...original. Iain, if you were my MP, I would be falsely registering myself as many times as I could just so I could vote for you as many times as possible at the next election."

Reminds me of the old Not the Nine O'Clock News skit of POINTS OF VIEW. "Dear Barry Took, I love the BBC so much I would happily pay the licence fee ten times over!" Yes, you'll think my ego has gone mad, but I tell you, when I read that on someone's blog it made all the abuse I have had over the past week worthwhile. Almost. I've no idea who this blogger is. I had never heard of his blog until a friend pointed it out today. Thanks for the kind words, even if he goes on to be slightly critical of me in the rest of the blogpost! I've had worse.
