Given the hugely enjoyable level of lunacy, profanity and insight in the comments section of the blog, Guido is always rather pleased to come across a real gem. Today 13eastie’s take on why Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls is the best man for the job met the criteria. The blog will be introducing a regular reader’s “Comment of the Day” with a bottle of whisky for the readers blog comment chosen to be the best of the month sponsored by Bruichladdich, the “Progressive Hebridean Distillers”. Bruichladdich are the only Scottish progressives Guido likes. This is good stuff…

N.B. Billy Bowden, it is about quality not quantity…
