Let's have a heated debate!

Dave does not like being called fat or having his poetry criticised. On another post he has a dig at George Galloway for having too many pictures of himself on his blog. I suspect it is the marathon training that is making him so ratty, and further suspect that this would be a bad time to reiterate that he looks like Nigel Lawson after the diet these days (proof).

Friday forecast time again ... note that every other bugger who attended the rather dispiriting-looking "Whither the Left?" debate organised by the JCC last week has blogged about it, so Nick might as well; I am guessing that he has written a last column before starting his sabbatical (if anyone wants a sweepstake on who replaces him I am guessing Carol Sarler for the Obs and Jo Brand for the Standard). I rather suspect that, since Nick has not been backward in coming forward in the past when talking about these events, the fact that there has been such radio silence on it so far may indicate he lost.

PS: If this was "Matthew Norman's Media Diary Watch", the Aaro/Zoe Williams spat would be a cert.

Mmm, I'd have to say if it was possible to rank all the world's women and men in attractiveness then I'm not sure Aaro would be nearer the top than Williams (http://www.guardian.co.uk/

Anyway it's fair enough I suppose as she was having a go at him. However I can't help but think it's partly related to Iraq, as well as the maraton. There does seem to be a collective breakdown of civility amongst the Decents as of late, I suspect because they know the game is up. Harry's Place in particular -- one example was Andrew Bartlett made a perfectly sane comment and Harry, Gene etc jumped in for no good reason, Gene even saying he liked some (nationalistic anti-German German group) because they annoyed Bartlett.

Re. DA and body size: I suspect he's never recovered from the legendary riposte to his 'I'll eat Roy Hattersley' promise in the Guardian (scroll down to view). 'Who ate all the pies?' indeed.
