A bit of a shame

Iain Dale, he of Iain Dale's Diary and one of the earlier political bloggers with a penchant for the Conservatives, has decided he will stop blogging as of now. I think this is a shame as I found his posts both amusing and erudite. I did not always agree with him even though he is a Conservative, but he was never nasty in the way most left wing bloggers are.

His main reason is because he has now got quite a few irons in the fire and does not have time to dedicate to maintaining the quality of his posts. Also, he said he was getting tired of the back-biting, but I guess that is par for the course in politics!

Oh, well

It does not really concern me that the UK was humiliated at the FIFA vote for the hosting of the 2018 Football World Cup. I am pretty sure the whole thing was fiddled, and the MSM did not exactly help with their exposure of the corruption of some FIFA members.

Far more importantly, we are hosting the Rugby League World Cup in 2013 and, even more importantly, the Rugby Union World Cup in 2015!
