In At Number 66...

After yesterday's disappointment with the PCC ruling, today is another day, and a rather brighter one. I've just been flicking through the December issue of GQ Magazine and have been reading their list of the 100 Most Influential Men in Britain. It's an intriguing list, not least because for some reason best known to themselves they have included me at number 66 - one place above Ian Hislop, two above David Miliband, but best of all 17 places above Sir Alex Ferguson and 32 places above Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger.

I suppose I should also mention I am two places behind Mr Guido Fawkes!

So, your position as "contibuting editor and columnist for GQ magazine" has nothing to do with this, then, Iain?

Congratulations! Being above SAF is quite an achievement - expect an email giving you the hairdryer treatment. ;o)

Since GQ is meant to be a fashion magazine I'd be very worried about being two places behind Guido.

Two places above David Miliband, our Foreign Minister. Hilarious.

I remember you once accused me of 'pretending to know you' . I enjoy the blog but...I know only two people in the world who could tell you from Father Christmas so it was a puzzle . All is now clear .Meeting Chaz and Dave outside St. Albans Civic Centre eating chips ,shall be replacedwith ‘the day I met Britain’s 66th most influential man .... ‘ as my top anecdote .

Oh dear. I take it that you didn't make the list, Newmania.

Disappointing though it is to discover you actually see such a sad magazine (did you disclose this to the Bracknell party, btw?), how will you ever manage to live with the responsibility brought by your influence? It is a heavy burden, surely?

My god, just how many media jobs can one man do?
