I realise I’m not loved by all, one cheeky contributor today dared to suggest that this blog is all about me (why are they always anonymous) plus hinting that I might be a neo-nazi, if only I’d know I could have saved that contribution to Lib Dem funds last week.
Anyhow I’m prepared to acknowledge the more minor charge of being self obsessed and plead guilty, having stumbled across this little list wrote out on my phone gizmo during a break TEN THINGS I’VE DONE – as a result of blogging (yes I am that self obsessed).
Number one – accepted an invitation to speak by to speak on media issues from an academic
Number two - made and lost a friend
Number three - appeared on the telly
Number four - been threatened with legal action
Number five - sometimes had more influence than I ever thought possible
Number six - lost hours of my life and been dragged from a warm telly
Number seven - had delusions of grandeur
Number eight - realised what's possible and what's not
Number nine- discovered therapy for middle-aged angst
Number ten - discovered that I don't know everything
Clearly Labour activist or supporters don’t like home truths about what their party has done to this countries economy or society but indulging in cheap slurs hardly helps.
Still at the end of the day this blog is all about me, as is the case with any commentator. Still I’m proud to be considered a bigot by Labours followers it means I’m still capable of honest fair independent thought and for balance I’m sure Tories see me as a jumped up oaf.
