Join the dots

Apparently, we major political bloggers are asleep on the job.
Why are the major bloggers not picking up on these things? Where are they? Tied up in Polly Toynbee and David Milliband.

Well, yes, we get all tied up in spelling "Miliband" correctly, amongst other things. I don't want to speak for anyone else, but for fuck's sake, I'll cover precisely what I want to cover and you know why? Because I do this for my delight; I am not some kind of philanthropic public service, nor am I an unpaid publicity mouthpiece.

I am fed up of being lectured by bloggers who feel that I'm not doing my "job" properly. You want me to cover stuff: fucking well pay me—make it, if you will, a proper job—and I will think about trawling through your poorly written, structurally incoherent posts and try to assemble them into something that people want to read and easily comprehend.

In the meantime, I shall keep trawling the 130 or so RSS feeds that I currently track and continue writing about things that I want to write about, in the way that I want to write about them.

Oh, and I have been aware of Common Purpose for some time and may well write about it at some stage. In the meantime, if you are interested, do feel free to watch this fascinating although overly long video about this rather sinister organisation.

DK, mine is a single malt - Jura, if you don't mind. Trixy - what's yours, dear? Cheers, DK.

By the way, do you happen to recall who was N2 on your hit-with-a-brick-list?

I have just wasted 45 minutes of my life watching the video about "Common Purpose"

Its standard conspiracy theory fare; some desperate chap trying to make sense of the chaos we live in by proving to us that its all run by a secret society.

If you have lived in the real world you will know that it runs on the "fuck-up" theory, the only common bond most managers have being their utter incompetence.

Its all conveniently self-fulfilling and thrives on a lack of robust validation of the facts.
