Iain Dale was just on Sky news commenting on the Newspapers, and said he was ashamed of Bloggers..
Over what did I hear you ask?, over the way in which the blogging community had villified William Hague over spending a night in a room with his aide during the general election...
Hold on a minute Iain, I think that saying that is a bit strong don't you?
I certainly never said anything about Hague or his room sharing, nor to the best of my recollection do I remember anyone that I read having said anything about the matter either!
I may not be widely read on the net and I may also have a limited selection of blogs that I in turn read, but as I said I saw nothing on this subject.
So what does your comment amount to then Iain, tarring us all with the same brush is it?
I am offended Mr Dale, if you read rubbish sites here in the blogosphere then be ashamed of them, name them! and let your shame at least be identifiable. It irks me that you should cast such vague generalisations on the legions of bloggers out here, many of whom do a fine job of exposing the weaknesses of the government and even individuals within it.
That 'some' bloggers, no doubt anti Tory ones in this instance, would try to villify Hague in this manner is unsuprising really. Should you not have identified the section of the community that these things came from to warn readers of the perils of reading such rubbish! I think you have done the whole blogging fraternity a disservice here Iain and I think you did it to 'sound' good on the telly!
I'm glad you are not on my blog list Iain as it saves me the trouble of removing you, and I should think again if I were you, for the person to be ashamed most is the one who makes unsubstantiated allegations, you as a blogger should know this!!! and in the face of that knowledge the person I am most ashamed of being a blogger at the present moment is YOU!! in your highly visible role of blogging spokesperson.
I'm afraid I have to agree with certain other bloggers that I do read, that you are a pompous ass!!
In other more important news , I see the copper who abused the squaddie by punching and rubbing his face on the road has been severely told off by the judge on his case and given THREE YEARS , Well done Judge, welll done!
