Whilst I Was Away…

  • My tan improved.
  • The Guardian called Guido a heavyweight blogger (Montignac diet clearly not working).
  • I learnt that Blackberries are great for email, but give you thumb cramp if you use them too heavily. (Also too complicated to blog with – edits are a nightmare).
  • The Tory leadership race narrows to only 1 in 20 Tory MPs hinting that they plan to stand for the leadership. Proof that the arrogant self-regard of our politicians is endless.
  • I discovered that babies get jet-lag too. (How? Baby Fawkes has us Mrs Fawkes up every three hours or so already.)
  • A judging panel for the Press Plagiarist of the Year Award is forming (see below), Recess Monkey joins the panel. We are looking for another blogger or two to join the panel. A wonderful trophy has been commissioned. Please keep emailing examples of plagiarism in (don’t think we haven’t noticed you lazy sods at the Yorkshire Post…)
  • Tom Watson MP has a baby to blog about as well now. Which is handy, because he keeps schtum about real politics nowadays…
  • The prolific Tim Worstall has made 163 posts since I promised to link to him.

Quote of the Day

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
