In an email to the inestimable Doctor Weevil I asked him not to think that all BritBloggers™ are as full of themselves as the egregious Brendan O'Neill (the Vast Right Wing BlogSpiracy's whipping boy du jour). He assures me he knows enough Brits to know that is not the case and then leaves me gape-jawed with astonishment at the revelation that of the twelve blogs that Brendan recommends as 'too good for the Blogosphere', one of them is his own blog! The man is besotted with himself.
It's tragic really, because O'Neill is a highly skilled and often interesting writer. But if ever the charge of weblogs being 'vanity publishing' needed evidence then, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I give you Brendan O'Neill.
