May I strongly recommend popping over to the Guardian and reading Sir Michael's piece on Daniel Hannan

Not for his sage prose - but for the comments, all 280+ of them.

I cried with laughter.

Iain, what an affront to your standards - only SEVEN top books !

How dare he ?

I bet he is one your top ten list of failed blog posts.

Though it pains you to do so, you might want to pay a quick visit to (shhh) labourlist. A 22 year old journalist called Laurie Penny posted a rather good rant at MPs and their expenses. Though I think her solution is crap, her post is passionate, and it's the first genuine criticism of Labour I've seen on that rag.

It's the article that prompted Sadie to call for Dolly to be fired for sanctioning an article that criticizes a Labour MP (McNulty).

Ironically, Ms Penny wrote it before our Eric was caught in a pickle!

I think you should publicise Matthew Parris' Times article.
its not enough to laugh with Hannans speech - we should highlight Browns verbal garbage which preceded it.
