There's been a lovely little spat between, among others, Tim Ireland
on the one hand, and Prague Tory
on the other. This is mostly that bloggy stuff that seems to crop up quite a lot at the moment and can usually be ignored. The one area that has generated most heat
has been an accusation of bias and partiality against Prague Tory (surely not!) to the effect that, becuase he was so quick to express his shock, horror and outrage at Cllr Terry Kelly
(living evidence that a pig's bladder on a stick can achieve elected office) when he implied that a right-wing Scottish blogger wasn't to be trusted around children.
Given that Guido
famously made a similar statement about Mark Oaten shortly before his exposure as a rent-boy using coprophiliac (though to be honest, I've wondered whether there wasn't an element of the David Mellor about this one - an false accusation of toe-sucking in a Chelsea strip stuck in the middle of a true allegation of an affair), Ireland and Unity have called PT on hypocrisy - if you are outraged by Kelly, you must be equally outraged by Guido.
Well, I wonder where and how Simon Hoggart
fits into this galaxy of outrage? In his sketch today he writes, of Tony Blair the following:
I don't know what it is about Tony Blair and schools. He can't keep away from them. If he didn't arrive in a limo, they'd get the police to keep an eye on him during netball practice.
That's exactly the same humourous nudge-nudge that Guido (drunkenly) and Kelly (leadenly) used. According to the blogging rules, do we expect a post denouncing Hoggart from all three? Watch this space (well not this one obviously, but this one
, this one
and this one
