Chicken and Egg

13 Apr

Sunny has a post over at LC commenting on the McBride/Draper affair. Sunny asserts that, surely, Derek Draper’s scandalous and counterproductive foray into the blogosphere is over. Done. Finished. Kaputt.

I hope so. Draper is not only “poisonous for the Labour party”, he has become a toxic presence that is soiling the entire medium. It’s almost as if Dolly’s a MSM agent, planted within the blogosphere to undermine the medium and bring it down from within.

He is a virus. A horrid bacterium that has spread, uncontrolled, through the online community. It’s time he slithered away.

But the thing is… there… just now… I fed the goat. That’s what Dolly wants. That’s what Guido wants. These wankers are HUGE ego-whores. They want you talking about them. Good or bad. They’re like the vacuous coked-up clothes horses that populate the celeb rags, they’re obsessed with publicity.

And you, I, we’re all just doing exactly what they fucking want. We’re talking about them. Aggghhhh!!!

I could write a hugely informed post about how Paul “Guido” Staines is a hypocrite for slating McBride/Draper, when he’s a pioneer of mud-slinging hate politics (chicken and egg?), but I’d be FEEDING THE FUCKING GOAT!

So please, I beg you, let’s stop waxing their egos and ignore these two self-seving wankers.

I repeat…

NEXT!

    Odd. I just hit post on a very similar post. I can join you in weary resignation?

    Stable door. Horse bolted. Guido and Dale were pretty much the only subjects on certain left-leaning blogs for months on end, not so long ago. Can’t have it both ways. I pretty well ignored Guido from the get-go but what sent me back there time and again were posts on blogs slagging him off. It was all about pointing out to Guido and Dale the error of their ways and demanding that they conduct their blogging in some “approved” manner. Well, they took no notice (surprise, surprise) and just carried on to a chorus of whingeing that it wasn’t fair, blah, blah. There are far worse blogs and bloggers on the right in the USA and they seem to have developed a strong liberal/left blog presence. My advice to UK political bloggers is: stop bleating and start blogging about anything BUT these two creeps.

    You’re absolutely right tyger, but it is also true of the media in general. The Sun get outraged by Jacqui Smith’s husband watching a couple of dirty movies opposite their full page spread of a woman with her boobs out.The Daily Mail (shudder) never cease to shout from their high horse about how everyone else is so corrupt and terrible and they are the worst of them all. They have no commitment to the truth or to justice, it’s all about ego and sales.This whole bandwagon on MP’s expenses is typical. No one screws their expense accounts like journalists yet suddenly they want us to be outraged that an MP for the north of Scotland has a flat near his work in London.Rubbish. Rubbish. Rubbish.It should be all our responsibility to support the responsible truth-seeking media.
