Fakery.....

Love it. The Guido blog has just uncovered these shenanigans on the part of the Labour candidate in Glasgow East. All's fair in by-elections I guess. David Cameron, meanwhile, gave an assured if unexciting interview on the 'Today' programme yesterday - I'm told that he always likes to turn up to do these interviews in person so that he can look the interviewer in the eyes! What is this, a game of who blinks first?! Meanwhile, Cameron has also appointed someone from the blogosphere to join his speechwriting team - Sam Coates, of Conservative Home, who left university before completing his degree, now has the task of upping the ante of the Cameron rhetoric. Any fans of West Wing will know that speech-writing is the heart of the political machine!

Kind? I thought your line about leaving university before getting a degree was an insult. But then that's academic snobbery for you (cf. Pier's comment on Bristol historians!)
