Andrew Gilligan plugging his leaky vessel for the umpteenth time.
I smiled to myself a few months ago when a rival, Labour blogger with a reliable record of not knowing very much announced that Policy Exchange’s river report had “sunk at a rate of knots“. (One more triumph for London Labour, by the way – opposing yet another transport project which is popular with the public, purely on the grounds that the hated Johnson supports it!)
Now if you're going to accuse somebody else of "not knowing very much", then it helps if you don't within the same sentence, get things wrong yourself.
You see I am not a "Labour blogger" nor am I a member of "London Labour."
In fact unlike Andrew I have never had any attachment to the Labour party whatsoever.
I have voted Labour locally in the past, but I have also voted for Green and independent candidates.
And at the last general election I voted for those staunch Labour types known as the Lib Dems.
Needless to say, Gilligan made no attempt to contact me before writing his post.
Now I don't mind Andrew having a pop at me. In fact I quite enjoy it.
But two days after asking him to correct his false claims, he has still completely failed to do so, or even to reply.
Could this be because (once again) the facts don't fit with his story?
