The Daley Two Thirds of a Dozen: Monday


Sorry I haven't had time to finish this. I'm off to Sky News, where I am doing the paper review at 10.30 and then again at 11.30. Sadly both Kevin Maguire and Stephen Pound can't make it, so I will be joined by broadcaster Jonny Gould.


1. That's News reviews a new Twitter application for politicians.
2. Dan Hannan thinks he is the victim of a Draper/Maguire smear. And he reckons Guido has achieved a blogging first.
3. Rob Fenwick didn't want you to see this. Much.
4. Chris Paul is the latest Labour blogger to urge Draper to quit.
5. Sunder Katwala on the Moronic Mirror and the moronic Kevin Maguire.
6. Sunder Katwala on the future of LabourList and whether Smeargate was really a story about the blogosphere.
7. Donal Blaney asks if Labour's smear tactics are part of a national strategy.
8. Red Box on Gordon Brown's letter to Gus O'Donnell.

THIS is priceless. I know you've posted a few videos recently, Iain, but this is great.

Two pieces from Sunder Katwala - good to see.

I hadn't really read any of his stuff until a month or so ago, and I don't agree with a lot of it, but it is always cogently argued and well-written.

“Dan Hannan thinks he is the victim of a Draper/Maguire smear. And he reckons Guido has achieved a blogging first.”

Again. Wasn’t that the breaking of the Monica Lewinsky business by Drudge some 10 years ago?

Kevin Maguire = Hoon.

Hoon, of course, being a euphenism for a much ruder word that I can't use here.

Hannan's upset that there's an internet story not about him.

@GrimReaper

Do you mean it's forbidden to say "Geoff" here?
