Another completely unattributed post

Political blogging is such fun, and there's nothing better that a good old fashioned series of 'Hat Tips' or 'H/T' as we call it in-house here at The Country Club.

It works something like this, little people, whom I don't give a damn about because I'm so cool and suave here in my handsome polo shirt and cheeky little loafers. I'll give a good old 'hat tip' (or h/t as it's known in code) to my Westminster village buddy Iain Dale, and then he'll hat tip me in return.

Then I'll hat tip him, then he'll hat tip my pal DK, who'll then hat tip Old Holborn, who'll then engage in a vigorous series of hat tips with Anna Raccoon (not a fully fledged member of the club, but moving up the junior league of Club Aspirants. At the moment she's just a caddy, but bless her, eh).

And just to round it out, an equally unattributed comment from my blog:

You cunt.

This is clearly in reference to my recent piece, insults included.

And the double snub of not even giving credit to the fucking inspiration for the article.

You are truly a fat headed useless toss bag.

Cheers for that, you rude cunt.

Colour me confused. Perhaps it's only "country club" if you're tipping your hat to the wrong person. Perhaps it's "good manners" when you tip your hat to the right person.

Or perhaps I just don't give a shit about hypocrites who slag off good manners except when it applies to them.

Do remind me to give you a hat tip for this post....

Are the post and the comment every-so-slightly related. Enquiring minds etc., etc.

I bet I know who that cunt is...I recognise the whine from here.

Is that what it is? I thought it was a loose fan belt on a Mark II Cortina.

I do like a rich full bodied whine, but not the one from an activists Mk II Cortina.
That carries on after the engine stops.

The B&D arn't wrong there is a definite hegemonic blog society to be found on the back slapping Total politics list. But just like every supposed elite society it will have it's day. Bet you if B&D were included in the club they would be as fastiduous as the rest of them.

But essentially and I can not stress this one gives a fuck. Most of us like a good blog delivering intellectual content we can sharpen our analytical tools on.

The more the elite bitch slap each other...the more opportunity for some more interesting thinkers to get win !!

I beg to differ - at least one person appears to.

You don't get it do you Obo?

You linking / referencing me in the instance you alluded to wouldn't be hat tipping, it would be manners.

Why the difference?

Well, because we have long established that you and I are very different bloggers, with different opinions, who have certain, shall we say, antagonisms and will never be best of bloggedly blog bosom pals. There's nothing to be gained by either side by sucking up and currying favour.

Your piece was clearly taken off something I had recently written, and more important than all this, it contained one or two not so subtle digs.

All of this meant that no reference was rude.

The article you quoted from where I rip into country clubbing is entirely out of context here, because I was talking about an incestuous bunch of people trying to get into one another's good books so they can expand their popularity and contacts list. Or shameless stats whoring and attention seeking, as I see it.

Well done for digging the old quote up though, and I'm pleased to see all the above readers were so on message in agreeing with your lame propaganda.

Good luck with the Club Obo. And Anna? I've not seen Martyrdom this painful since watching Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. You silly cow.

"You don't get it do you Obo?"

I think, actually, you overwrought drama queen, that you will find it's you that doesn't get it.

What you consider to be incest is simply good manners and your shameless hypocrisy is to think that because we disagree over some things means that I should accord you a courtesy that you mock and deride in others.

And for you to attack anyone else for being an attention-seeker is such monumental hypocrisy that I think you should consider standing for parliament. You'd make an excellent Labour MP.

J Demetriou said...

Ah yes, you've tried and worn out a series of other boring slurs, so the latest one is the Labour / Gordon Brown attack. Pathetic.

You'll never see sense, Obo. Waste of time trying to get you to wake up. Unless you do see it, but would rather not have the guts to admit it.

Just for the record, fart face, I didn't want a link for the sweatshop piece. Just a simple reference. Because, once again, the piece was a reference itself to something I had written.

I didn't want your readers, or your recommendation, and you know it because we have the same fucking readers you retard! What would be in it for me? Nothing.

Fuck sake.

Go on, fuck off and go peddle your wares with some toss bag who gives a shit.

The only good thing I can say about you at this point in time is that you are not Iain Dale. That's how bad you are placed in my very bad books.
