Political bloggers should (I feel) be passionate but not unpleasant, generally-speaking. Hopefully not unpleasantly, if not without a certain mischief, I've just registered my feelings about Michael Crick's overpowering bias against the Right by managing to get a highly sarcastic comment past the BBC moderators and onto Michael Crick's blog. This is, I feel, a minor triumph of sorts - if only that the state-sponsored BBC website receives rather more hits than this one, and more people might read it!! (No, it's true!!)

Well done Michael, a funny story that shows just what the Tories are like! This makes it your 6th post (out of 8) this month about the Tory Party. I've loved them all. Three have been firmly anti-Tory (well done again!), and the others merely slanted against the Tories (great!). None have been specifically about the Labour government (and why should they have been?). I know some people think you hate the Tories, but I hate them too and I don't see anything wrong in that. I think you're doing a great job. Go on Michael, keep socking it to them!"
This man offends against all notions of BBC impartiality month-in and month-out. I think a little mischief is justified in the circumstances! Don't you?
