On this weekend, when we're all still hurting and nursing our wounds, on this weekend you choose to run a piece by the slimy moustache-twirling villain of the Tory blogosphere telling us exactly what he thinks we should do?

On a weekend when we have been told by the electorate exactly how toxic agreeing too much with the Tories is, you run a piece which has the tone of fatherly advice to errant children from one of the most underhanded Tories going?


Right at this moment in time we need to be seen taking advice from tribal Tories like we need a hole in our collective heads. The electorate have told us what they think of this road. Please don't persist in dragging us down it. Please. I know you're a big famous website and I'm only a little solo blogger, and you think you know better than me, but do try to think what message this sort of post sends out to the voters. Please.

ETA: oh Gods it gets worse. Apparently: "Iain Dale is saying on twitter he wrote it for the Mail & is slightly bemused (amused?) by it turning up on LDV!" So it's not just a poisonous article, it's a poisonous article originally written for the Daily Fail???

Ye gods. I agree with you - this isn't the time.

I absolutely agree with you. Ian Dale might not be the slimiest tory around but he's certainly in the top ten.

One minor point though, C'thulu has an apostrophe in it.

I've not seen Cthulhu with an apostrophe - is that canonical?

Lots of different spellings:

And the canonical one has no apostrophe. And two of the letter h.

Bugger. I've been getting it wrong for all these years.

Odious though he is, there are some good points:

"Cleggmania has turned into Cleggophobia. Every policy Nick Clegg touches now is seen to be toxic." (Someone linked to a piece by Charlotte Gore which said much the same.)

"The sainted Vince Cable bleats on about how the Tories are “ruthless, calculating and tribal,” without the faintest hint of irony in his voice. Has he never observed a LibDem by election campaign?"

It was a bit of a surprise to see him on a website called LibDemVoice, though! Perhaps this is what the "New Politics" looks like?
