Yog Brother makes an appearance in the comments. Sadly he is tragically unable to remove Guido from his blog roll having already done that as result of last year’s annual boycott attempt. What was he doing returning? Didn’t he swear to ignore Guido last year? Will he add Guido back to his blog roll in order to remove him again? Hasn’t he broken the terms of the boycott he supports by commenting?
Blog Brother was the fifth highest referrer today since beginning his boycott calling for people to stop linking. Blog Brother added multiple new links himself in breach of his own boycott.
Since starting the boycott his linkage has risen exponentially, driving traffic towards Guido’s politically incorrect comment making thought-criminals.
In Yog Brother’s comments, Blog Brother speculates about some kind of elite bloggerati* who are “selling a certain advertising product to organisations that sell ideas to politicians and companies with surprising efficiency”. MessageSpace immediately plan to use Blog Brother’s endorsement in a new powerpoint presentation.
*If you want to join the elite bloggerati and have over 10,000 uniques a month go here.
GF Hi Konrad, what is Ed speaking on tomorrow?
KC Err, who is this?
KC I’m not talking to you.
GF But you are now aren’t you?
Using only the power of the good side of the force, Guido has divined that the Sith are holding a meeting with Ed Balls, the master’s apprentice, as the speaker.
This is the non-political, non-partisan, Treasury hosted and rebated, tax-deductible-donations-welcome “public educational charity” holding a meeting it wants to keep secret. Maybe one of the co-conspirators knows the details. Is it at No. 11 again? What is the topic? Most think-tanks want to publicise their events openly, the Sith acts like a secretive cabal. Which in many ways it is…

Invitations were sent out from: “The Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Master of the Royal Mint” to a reception tonight at the Scotland Office. Alas, he has decided to be on a plane to India at the time of the event.
The party was on the occasion of the issuing by the Royal Mint of the new commemorative £2 coin. It was to be a celebration of the Treaty of Union of England and Scotland, but the pictures would have looked very Scottish in the English press wouldn’t they? Brown of course supports the English football team and is British. 80% of voters are in England and the polls say they are increasingly sympathetic to freedom from and for Scotland…

Even the more puritanical ConservativeHome is considering putting forward the decriminalisation and medicalisation of addiction as a policy. There are millions of smokin’ voters… and a some of the shadow cabinet have been known to partake themselves.
