Tim's been writing polite letters to those editors who have used stories in the past from the now thoroughly discredited Glen Jenvey. I wonder what they'll say about it? We'll see.
Relatedly, Septicisle looks at the Sun's demand for the immediate arrest of Anjem Choudary, based on the fact he's committed the crime of... er, well, there isn't any specific allegation of a crime, but that doesn't stop the Sun wanting him to be arrested.
Andrew Adams on the new hero of the right - an immigrant postmaster (who is ironically therefore not British under James Slack's demanding criteria) who doesn't like people who can't speak English.
BenSix on the 'surge' in Iraq.
Sarah at Paperhouse on why she hasn't cancelled her Private Eye subscription just yet. I found the last issue pretty tedious - the Muslim women as Daleks saying "Exterminate" was unfunny and offensive rather than simply offensive, which is an important distinction to make; and 'Ratbiter' (who to be fair did have a bash at homeopathy the other week) was there with a weakly argued load of old crap next to an unfunny cartoon of a Muslim reading a newspaper entitled 'Hate'. But there's just about enough in there to keep me amused, I guess.
Sad news for Noel Edmonds fans - Noel's HQ,
the execrable vanity project campaigning show which saw the TV meltdown of the century has been cancelled. Poor teh Noel. The bad news, I'm afraid to report, is that the fucker will be trying to tout this nonsense to other networks - I can just see the little weasel on Channel 5 on a Saturday night. And me not watching it.
And here's a bizarre story about a man being arrested under the Terrorism Act for taking a film of a 'non-tourist area'. What? I take it this is all in the name of freedom.
Meanwhile, let's have a little fun with some Mail predictions.
LITTLEJOHN: Makes pathetic Fawlty Towers joke about this hotel, which refused a gay couple (thanks to Will for the tipoff).
PHILLIPS: Gets up a head of steam about abortion services being advertised on TV (bonus points for mentioning 'abortion industry' or suggesting it'll be advertised during children's programmes).
HITCHENS: How the gay paedo mafia stopped Christians from being alive.
QUENTIN LETTS: Phwoarrr! Look at these sexy politician ladies! Much tastier than Harperson, innit lol rofl??!?!!? Oh hang on, sorry, my mistake, he's already done that shit.
