In amidst the enormous kerfuffle caused by the McBride/Draper emails
, the way that most left-wing blogs have reacted has been hilarious. We are all missing the real scandal here. OK, civil servants paid by the taxpayer may be spending their time concocting lies about Tory MPs and their families, OK, the civil servant in question might be one of Brown's closest advisors, and work from the next-door desk to the PM. OK, fine, but the real scandal is that Paul Staines isn't very nice
! And Iain Dale didn't get to be involved
But the ne plus ultra
post of this sort is up on Bloggerheads
. Wondering how much it addresses the issues?
