I’m waiting to see a firm denial from Gilligan. When you’re ready, Andrew….
Meanwhile, bloggers who suspect that they may be a victim of these shenanigans may want to check their stats/back-end for visits from ‘Associated Newspapers Ltd’ (and/or the IP range 18.104.22.168 – 22.214.171.124).

Kennite is my partner. Is that allowed? I’ve always been perfectly happy, as you acknowledge, to point out the shortcomings in your journalism under my own name. Even by the standards of the Ken Left, it strikes me as more than usually bizarre to accuse me of concealing my true views about our former mayor and his online fan club.
It’s also good to see such a sure sense of priorities. On the day of a major mayoral policy launch about a trivial subject like knife crime, you’re focusing on the issues that really matter.
The ‘fascist’ tag is pretty subtle, but there’s a clear attack on Hill, and the “Don’t you have anything better to do (than catch me cheating)?” tactic is textbook.
And, of course, there’s the statement that ‘kennite’ is a partner, which isn’t quite a denial.
Life partner? Business partner? Did ‘Kennite’ post the comments or did A.G. post the comments using their profile?
And this does nothing to explain the trail of anonymous comments he has left in his wake elsewhere.
