A new feature entirely inspired by this week’s winner, I have decided to highlight the most ridiculous posts I have read (of any party persuasion – if I was running this a few months ago, this piece on Labour Uncut wouldn’t have escaped) in the week.
This week’s post- sadly almost inevitably these days – comes from Lib Dem Voice. It’s this spectacular own goal from Matt Gallagher. Lib Dem voice is not the interesting read it used to be. It’s almost parodic in the dissonance between the vast, vast majority of the articles which aren’t simply – as you would rightly expect – pro-coalition, but are almost Maoist (New Labour?) in their purity of thought. This runs to two strands: How great the coalition are, and how awful Labour is.
In a month where the main party political story was the Lib Dems reneging on a pledge (not a manifesto but a signed seperate pledge) made not six months beforehand, this attack on labour seems at best ill timed, and at worst defensive rubbish. As – to their credit – the commentators on the piece seem to recognise.
So for his Karl Rove like ability to attack in others that which you are most guilty of, well done Matt Gallagher! You are the inaugural Worst blog post of the week!
