Two blogs about Tories in two days! Just shows that I am trying to bring a bit of balance into my writing.
Well, perhaps not! Yesterday, I was complimentary about Ken Clarke but, today, Iain Dale (of the highly successful “Iain Dale’s Diary” blog) receives a different review.
Dale is a Tory which of itself is no reason to dislike him. In fact there is no reason to mention his politics but it’s my blog and no-one will read this anyway.
Much worse than being a Tory, Dale is SMUG. Big capital letters SMUG.
His blog gives me the impression of SMUGNESS.
I saw him reviewing the papers last night on BBC24. Again SMUG.
I heard him on the Worricker programme today. Again SMUG.
I don’t know if he has always been SMUG or if this trait has surfaced since he thought the Tories would win the next election.
I shall continue to visit his tablod-style blog but only to check on the degree of SMUGNESS
