London Bombings

I’m in favour of this suggestion from Kevin Drum.

If I could have one small wish for today, it would be for the blogosphere on both left and right to refrain from political point scoring over the London attacks. Just for a day. Isn’t tomorrow soon enough to return to our usual arguments?

Tim Blair isn’t


Dear old Chris Sheil. He just can’t help himself:

Last I heard it was at least 30-something dead and thousands insured. Very grim, etc.

Well, not really. Not so long as they were insured. Very forward-thinking of them.

That’s not even a spelling flame. It’s a typo flame. A typo that Sheil corrected within one minute.

    Tim, The link to Blair’s site, actually goes to yours!

    Hopefully not a Freudian slip.

    Fixed. Thanks for noticing the broken link before Blair had seventeen posts up on my error.

    … though that would have been funny because Blair’s link to Sheil’s comment is broken.

    Tim Blair certainly goes out of his way to tackle the big issues….

    I know he is tragically comic, a blow hard, a poor man’s version of – well, there are so many attack dogs who do this better than he. Anyway, my point was that we know this, but why do we care? It isn’t as if Tim Blair is actually influential and worth paying attention to.

    To be fair to Tim, he’s not engaging in political point-scoring.

    He is, however, still a hilarious lamo.

    Tim Blair is both tragic and spectacular at the same time. It’s like watching someone walk into a door jamb in slow motion, over and over again.
