CYBERSTREET OF SHAME, GUIDO BLOGGING A DEAD HORSE
FROM PRIVATE EYE'S HACKWATCH - BLOG STANDARD
Shock and Awe, now, that was worth squeaking moralistically about. But some wanker spreading lies about some other wankers, hardly news to anyone who has read the Old Testament or Chaucer or Shakespeare or anything, really. That's what they do, invent shit and tell lies; Guido's virginal moralising about McBride is preposterous and hypocritical.
Not quite sure what the Eye's objection is to the order-order commentariat, though. If British politicians engender such hatred and rage that those outside the media-political piss-up want to call down a plague on their heads, defile their wives and daughters and shove broken bottles up their arses well just who the fuck is Ian Hislop to condemn their lack of manners; smarming along with politicos on the BBC and attending Politician of The Year Awards Dinners is not exactly the cutting edge of satire. Cunting some charlatan all over cyberspace is probably much less offensive and certainly more productive than dropping fragmentation grenades in school playgrounds, the favoured stratagem of HM well-mannered Government and therefore, we must assume, of those gently ironic public schoolboys at the Eye.
Sickened by its applause of the Israeli massacre in Gaza, scornful of it's "moderation," Ishmaelites no longer visit order-order but the last time we looked it provided inter alia a voice for those the Eye holds in contempt; if it doesn't like what it hears, the Eye can do what we did, have its money back and fuck off. Freedom of speech includes the freedom to offend Ian Hislop, fat little turd in a scarf, floating in the BBC bowl.
