No2Evidence Based Blogging

Since Will Straw exited stage left, his old “Evidence Based Blog” seems to have exited the confines of reality. This morning they signalled the petty gloves were very much off in the AV war. Apparently a Yes2AV campaigner deliberately signing up to make his Facebook picture appear on the No2AV site is a major “gaffe”. Not really when you see the Yes2AV portraying No supporters in a similar way. Guido isn’t sure either side are going to get much cut-through if this is the extent of the air-war.

However it’s Left Foot Forward’s editorial judgement that really made Guido laugh. Given that the Yes campaign has in the last few months been caught pushing Nazi smears, accusing Labour MPs of being BNP supporters, seen their budget splashed in Sunday newspapers, lost a staffer for an “anti-Islamic diatribe” and can only find Nick Clegg to support them, perhaps Shamik Das should be a little more careful throwing the word “gaffe” about. But it’s hardly the first time Left Foot Forward have let the truth get in the way of a good story…
