Wot No Hottie?

This week the Guardian ‘Backbencher’ column has no “Political Hottie” feature, Guido suspected the failure last week to include the feature was because it might have been written by Tom Happold (in drag as the short-skirted ‘Backbencher’), but this week the feature is again missing.

Could the recent hectoring from this quarter of the blogosphere have led to its permanent and deserved demise? A question for Ros Taylor, the Media Wrap editor, methinks.

UPDATE : Its back this week!

Quote of the Day

Boris as Hulk…

‘Banner might be bound in manacles, but when provoked he would explode out of them. Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country. We will come out on October 31 and we will get it done.’
