Top blogging 2 (and some MainStream Media too!)

Does that rhyme? Anyway, here's the second of my occasional round-ups of things I appreciated on the blogosphere and beyond over the past week or so.

Stalin's Gran reveals John Prescott's taste in Indian-Italian cuisine...Tim Ireland and Justin McKeating leave some unwanted comments on Alastair Campbell's World Cup blog...Femme de Resistance gives her inimitable take on David Cameron's "Happiness Agenda,"....Iain Dale explains why the right rules the blogosphere...Madeleine Bunting takes her leave of the Grauniad...Stephen Pollard does his best to puncture the absurd media hype surrounding Nick Clegg...The Press Gazette reveals that most senior journalists are public school educated toffs... and A Dutchman comes up with what is surely the daftest blog of 2006 so far!

Hey Paul, thanks for the mention, much appreciated. However, you mentioning the Barnett formula? I don't believe it....

PS it rhymes but it does not scan - just call me Percy Bysse Shelley

Stalin's Gran is right that it doesn't scan, but it's also rather a graceless rhyme, given that two and too are homophones.

Might I tentatively suggest:

Top blogging anew (MainStream Media too!)

This isn't perfect, but it might go some way to satisfying poetic pedants in both the rhyme and scansion camps.

Of which you are obviously one.

Oh, I'm both, my dear boy!

My dear boy? You're beginning to sound like Mick the Market Trader.

I knew you'd remember him!
