Aaro on being stitched by Simon Hughes

Here. Quite a good article really, with no real Decent angle to it, and even the entirely understandable pique at Hughes for allowing the Sun to scoop them is pretty understated.

Friday forecasts, anyone? We have been on a roll this last two weeks.

Nick C: "The real hypocrisy of the Liberal Democrats is not their sex scandals but their opposition to the Iraq War". It has that sickening air of inevitability to it, doesn't it? For the Observer. For the Standard ... dunno, nothing obvious. But Ken Livingstone has apparently shelled out a few quid to the organisers of the Tour de France in order to get a stage held in London, and that must surely rate a joke item. NAPO (hey a blog!) appear to be all about pensions at the moment, so I am guessing that.

Dave in the Times ... I find myself saying Galloway, but his blog posts don't really suggest all that much enthusiasm. So I will go for G0ogle in China; maybe this is the week for "Dave plugs his blog".

Oh dear I feel the weight of pressure of being a twice in a row winner.


NCOb - Away (if not grammar schools)
NCSt - Galloway and Uday. Tour de France. Cameron soaking the rich.
DATimes - Conspiracy theories.

Observer: Nick Cohen is unwell.

New Statesman: (I haven't looked at it for a few years, but I'll guess) no column, no explanation. I can't see him mentioned on the NS site; but I don't know if that means anything.

DA: How my blog shows that there are thousands of unheard decent voices out there. Also the whale. And the London Marathon.

The Decents apparently have been in Israel. So that must be a surefire Cohen column when he returns.

NC: Sir Ian Blair, Soham, racism and the media

DA: Hamas victory

Nick: why does the left want to boycott israel when it could be boycotting google? This could of course also be the prompt for his much anticipated china article.

Hmm. Having had all those lectures about how wonderful it is to have elections in the arab world it will be fun to read the decent take on Hamas's victory ....

For NC, I'm wondering if the Thames whale will be a metaphor for something ... a left that has lost its sense of direction?
