Hello. It's been a couple of weeks, so here are the 10 most peeked-at entries on here over the past fortnight.
1. Gay B&B owner: Let me ban Tories - It seems ages ago, doesn't it? And yet Chris Grayling has been pretty quiet ever since. I enjoyed writing this little bit of nonsense so much it caused me to think about doing more of this kind of stuff.
2. Dr Who 'not sexy enough' says frustrated onanist - The tabloids were pearl-clutching in their outrage, but not everyone was impressed.
3. This was going to be a post about the Express - But it ended up being about dog-whistle politics in the Labour Party manifesto. Any Labourites scratching their heads wondering why the Lib Dems seem suddenly to be a more popular shout among liberal-lefties right now might like to consider the effect of 13 years of this kind of thing. History will probably record the effect of Nick Clegg's charisma and the TV debate, but I'm not so sure; I think it's more to do with being exposed to agreeable policies free of fear-tapping dog-whistles from a credible party. I don't think it'll stay that way, though, but we'll see.
4. Volcanic ash cloud prepares to be used as predictable analogy in election coverage - And here's Emily Maitlis of Newsnight happily tapping home the open goal.
5. Shut the fuck up about me, exasperated Justin Bieber tells Twitter - I finally know who Justin Bieber is. My life isn't tremendously enriched by this news, but I had to do something with it.
6. Bunch of wee-smelling bigots announce manifesto from down the pub - There's something refreshingly guileless about Ukip, I think. They don't have the dog-whistles of Labour or the Tories, or the smartness to code their language: they just go for it. I have almost grown to like their clunking ineptitude and withering nonsense, much as I disagree with it.
7. The lie that just won't die - It's that old 'migrants are taking our jobs!' ghost story from the Express. They and the Mail wheeled it out at election time; the first question in the leaders' debate the other day was about immigration. This kind of nonsense reporting keeps it in the agenda.
8. Europeans rejoice as 'Brits on the piss' stuck in airport - The volcanic ash cloud of doom hasn't been entirely bad for everyone. Sure, some Brits have been trapped abroad, but it means a lot of other Europeans have been spared an encounter with Ing-er-land's finest.
9. I promise to destroy Radio Halifax, says Brown - Has there ever been a more gratingly hateful advertising campaign than Radio Halifax? Every time I see those smug pseudo bank men and women pretending they're broadcasting the brilliance of bank accounts from some giant office block, I keep hoping for a controlled demolition. Destroying Radio Halifax would be a real vote winner.
10.Unsightly 'Dacre' ruins Daily Mail's chances in election - Who gives a shit about Sarah Brown's toes? There's been a bit of weird foot fetishism going on during this election so far. As ever, the big issues are obscured in a wall of froth.
