LabourList Appoints Surprise New Editor

I've been out all afternoon dealing with, er, matters. But THIS post did bring a smile to my cheeks. And believe me, that's not been easy to do today.

Oh BLOODY HELL! Iain!

How the hell am I supposed to get this cork back into my bottle of Bolly before it goes flat now?

I thought this was a serious piece of news.

Honestly!......Next you'll be telling me that Brown has actually apologized.

Paul Burgin said...

Well Iain if you ever feel like changing sides! ;)
That said I imagine that should that million to one chance occur, you'd feel like Brian Clough running Leeds :/

Dungeekin said...

You're a gentleman, Sir. Thanks for the edit. And the link. And the traffic!

Nice

Paul Halsall said...

Could you do it? Perhaps in best debating society style, where you take on either role?

Congratulations on the promotion !!

Keep going Iain. The guy's a tosser and after (what will seem), never ending hassle, you will get some peace.

Rest assured that what you do and what you post is of huge interest (and in many cases), of huge solace to many who have no voice.

We can forgive your enormous ego (nice to have the chance!) - what you do is a good thing. Honorable really.

Keep going. Rest easy.

Even if you are a Spanner...

Zampa.

Spoofs are funny but Mr Foot was Labour leader in 1983! Not Neil Kinnock!

The Labourlist workplace is a toilet though!

@Martin Day:

For you to believe that line was true, you'd also have to believe Iain was 'a radical socialist'.

Getting the 1983 leader wrong was kinda the point. *grin*

Could you do it?
Iain certainly couldn't do worse.

Blimey, even I couldn't do worse!

WV: bunfoxes - the mind boggles.

Good one, Dungeekin, like your style!

Iain: Your being bombarded with personal threatening calls reminds me of a huge hoo-haa a mere couple of days ago in the blogosphere over the pond (check out Penelope Trunk's last-but-one-post entitled: "I hate David Dellifield, the one from...Ohio"- similarly, bordering on (psychotic?) harassment, quite unnerving, actually. Frightening yet interesting, in that Penelope Trunk's using her not inconsiderable "ether power" and influence to smear someone else... (despite her having kindly linked to me I can only be objective). Makes me think of our government...
Anyway, as as a one-week old blogger (ahhh!)I find this all quite a new kettle of fish (any advice, by the way?!) www.frustratedstay-at-homemum.blogspot.com

You do know that you'll be wearing Marigolds all day?

Is being a media whore one of the qualifications for this soon to be created vacancy? ;-)

Irfan Ahmed said...

Iain, I have barred TIm from my blog and have told him where to get off. I have deleted all his comment as well!

I think you should take him to task with the law!

It was in fact possible to vote for Mr Kinnock in 1983, 23,183 people did.

Incidentally, Is this Derek-Draper's Zaphod Beeblebrox moment?
