Derek Draper, WGCE and Drama Queen

Oh, the humanity:

I am posting this here because many commenters to LabourList said yesterday that they thought such a personal matter should not be part off that website, which should be kept for political discussion. While I accept that, and have acted on it, I would point out that the only reason Guido Fawkes and his cronies in the press are gunning for me is because I have founded LabourList and they, however much they slag us off, are threatened by it.

What a staggering lack of self-awareness Mr Draper shows. Threatened by Labourlist? We're amused by it. We're amused by the pretension; the lack of judgment; the lack of rigour; the overweening fawning over bloated, corrupt has-beens; the vacuous flannel posing as content; the lack of engagement with critical comments; the risible idea that the content reflects the standard of intellect that our Parliamentarians should have.

Dolly's going mental. His wife must be taking a large portion from Anton again.

LabourPist! I sometimes pop over to LabourHome to check out the level of delusion on a given day. Never been to Dolly's. Why bother?

Cunt has got moderation on.

Oddly enough, the moderation at appears to be selective. Duuno how that works, but some of my offering get strainght through, others "await moderation".

Men down call for the medic.

We have lost Electro-Kevin,Tractor Stats,Machiavelli and Elvis this week.

Who from our band of brothers will
not last another week.

Are the fuckers out to get the bloggers or am I just being paranoid.

FTGF, I think they're all civil servants. My guess is that the powers that be are all clamping down on internal dissent before moving out to us.

Cry “havoc!” and let loose the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.

Let the war begin

What a twat. He reminds me of the people who say they went to university in Manchester, knowing full well that others will assume that they went to the University of Manchester (which is pretty prestigious, even in these days of devalued degrees), and will never have heard of the place that they ACTUALLY went to, which is the Manchester Metropolitan University (a former poly, and not nearly so prestigious - in fact, it's nicknamed 'Mickey Mouse University').
