As the congratulations are passed around the blogosphere after Guido’s victory over Damian McBride and Derek Draper, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is not a victory of the Conservative Party over Labour. This is a victory of People over Politics. And it’s a victory which should make all politicians, not just Labour ones, buck up their habits and start fearing the blogs. - Stuart Sharpe
"If you want to be a superstar blogger,
get in the papers but lose Labour an election -
you can just fuck off".
