No formal reply from Iain Dale after I outed him as a liar, but I think – give the content of this fresh post and this one – that the message is pretty clear.

Also, after weeks of being called every name under the sun by a series of mostly anonymous right-wing ratbags, today – via comments and email – I suddenly find myself blessed with constructive input from a number of ‘first-time’ Tory contributors who have the temerity to suggest that it is time for me to start playing nice.

Sorry, but I’m not having it.

An apology, Iain. Today, please.

And one for Justin too, if you’d be so kind.

(Psst! An illuminating exchange starting here for you folks to enjoy. The main point raised is much the same as this one.)

UPDATE – Oh, you’re going to *love* this… check out the comments. The man has no shame.

(Psst! Yes, this entry is about Iain and this entry is about Iain. The proof – if you feel you need it – is here. Hey, I tried to be nice.)


  1. Justin says

    I’ve been thinking about this. Thing is, we’re just two Joe Slob bloggers. Things like good manners and consideration come cheap to us.Iain, on the other hand, wants to be an MP. Nobody ever climbed the greasy pole displaying such qualities. It would be a sign of weakness.

    I could also be a sign that he doesn't have a fucking heart.
