Yeah But, No But…

What’s this in Guido’s inbox? Another day, another email from the Guardian, this one headed “Not For Publication”. And this time my correspondent is Marina Hyde, the diarist minx. Aha, thinks Guido, this will be about my Margaux…

But no, it begins with a very obsequious bit of internet grooming about how different and entertaining and generally great is Guido’s blog, before commencing a Vicky Pollard style explanation for how the Guardian Diary keeps running pieces the day after Guido which are exactly the same. But no mention of the bottle(s) of Margaux.

“Yeah but, no but, story was held back by this fing wot you know nuffin about. I didn’t copy it, the editor ate my homework. I think your site is great.”

She tells me she hardly ever reads blogs and certainly wouldn’t copy from them, definitely. Not. Don’t compare Wonkette’s coverage of the U.S. Presidential election with Ms Hyde’s. Any similarities will just be a case of “great minds think alike”, usually the day after in Ms Hyde’s case. Google away readers and see for yourself.
