I head it from Obnoxio, and it was sadly confirmed by Old Holborn, that the bastard enemy class press the Times has revealed the identity of an important and sound blogger. You will all have known Nightjack, or most of you.
Old Holborn has some more dirt on the bugger (who outed Nightjack.)
Nightjack won the Orwell Prize for blogging in April this year. A sad loss his ceasing to blog will be. here’s the offending Times piece. F888 The Times, may it go bust in interesting and hyper-creative ways, and soon.
May Foster’s head fall off and tumbel onto the floor with a loud thud-thud-thud, at some incovenient and embarrassing moment, like when he is having sex with a girl.
He’s not sound on drugs, but at least he gets what Parliament is for.
I have little time to write anything else today: perhaps you others can do somethng.
The above title alone should be enough to get Tony’s goat up. I bet you all 17p Tony’s got some paleogeological gripe about Heffer (probably supported waterboarding in the Glorious revolution of 1688 or something, and the “evidence” was posthunously covered up be Sir Francis Walsingham and Robert Cecil – http://www.agentsfor1688truth.org … ) – he seems to have one about every other individual to whom I make even a tangentially-euphemistic reference!
UPDATE1:- Heffer is still “considering” standing against the gardening heffalump. Good thing too: put the wind up the shysters it will, since we need to “send a massage” that we have allowed too many of the wrong sort of people into the Houses of Parliament, while our back was turned to deal with other matters – and we need more non-careerist-charity-shop-type-old-ladies (to whom £65,000-odd with no “extras” would feel like riches), retired-Field-Marshalls-who-don’t-need-the-money, successful ex-tobacconists-who-have-risen-to-run-multiple-chains (and who don’t need the money) and the like.
Iain Dale, who ought to know better on this one, and who is too close to the current Political Class for my liking (he may catch an infection if he’s not careful) had a go at Heffer a few hours ago. Who cares? If Heffer starts a trend, there can be plenty of local people in the constituencies of others. Like Hoon, Darling, Kirkbride, Mackay, and any other scumbag grifters and graspers who refuse to fall on their swords (as they can’t afford to yet, for there may be as much as £150,000 still to be troughed before June 2010.)
I am afraid Iain has misjudged the mood: he is too close to those who still plan to gain, even a little bit, while they can. keep away from them, Iain: we will need your powerful voice to rip the pants off the next lot of mountebanks, who will also be no better than they ought to be, and will if we are not careful, become what they are.
Now that this blog seems to be attracting attention from important people, I have taken certain steps regarding the comments.
No comment moderation is in place. But a robot now scans the entirety of all comments for certain keywords, the list of which may change on a one-time-pad basis, or it may not.
The Robot will decide whether to let such things on, or not, in ways which from time to time may vary.
This blog like others is private property. We are pleased to let people onto it, at our pleasure.
This will maximise the enjoyment that readers get out of it.
This from Iain Dale notes the sterling efforts of Brian Mickelthwait to codify a sort of bestiary of British libertarian bloggers. Others have noticed.
This is a Grunwick Moment. Anybody remember Grunwick?
Hmmm. No, I thought not. Sad.
The times are getting dark and interesting. The Endarkenment is even being hastened forward by representatives (nay, family members) of our own Head of State.
We all ought to know who we all are, for solace and for the necessity of drinking-companions within our reed-thatched huts and hovels, which is all that there will be, in time.
Soome of us will have Apple “notebooks” which will run for a century on a ounce of chicken-shit, and whose screens can be seen by the light of a candle, but not many I expect.

Guido Fawkes, never let it be forgotten, is one of us.
The video he linked to this morning, from some people called “don’t panic”, is humorous:-
If he showed it, he’d get poison-umbrella-tipped – but we can put it up.
