General election blog roundup 14
You may also be interested in Mick Fealty on Mark Lawson on Mick Fealty (and other bloggers). I'm still annoyed I didn't get a mention. Mark Lawson, you're a poo-head. Until you give me a nice prominent place in an article saying how great I am and stuff.
Oh, and you really ought to read this take on Lawson's piece by Alex "Yorkshire Ranter" Harrowell. Perhaps it's time for those of us bloggers who are actually professional writers in the real world to start up some kind of club to try and avoid being patronised by "proper" journalists... (Note to the traditional media - blogs are often first drafts, written in a rush and have not had the benefit of a sub-editor, proofreader or editor. They also may not always be representative of the blogger's usual standard of writing.)
You may also wish to check out EU Rota on yet more post-"No" vote speculation, this time from Romano Prodi to counter some frankly ridiculous scare tactics from some proponents of a "Yes". There's more over at EurSoc - including some suggestions of an early EU-based exit strategy for Blair. Personally I always reckoned it would be after the constitution referendum was lost, but if some other country gets there first they'll certainly need some kind of excuse - and Brown's slightly wary rhetoric over the EU could well make him the perfect antidote to Blair's apparently unthinking Europhilia.
