Kate Hoey - well you should get on well. My estimation of DJs has gone up from watching wotsisname put up with baroness Wossername doing the papers.

And bearing in mind one of your adverts at the moment, I would like to nominate Alexander the Meerkat to replace Alistair Darling to deliver the next budget.

You have made the Orwell shortlist, and well deserved too.

I would be a bit worried about your credentials if you hadn't.

The Hannan situation is proof, if ever you needed it, that bloggers are going to be agents of change.
