Tim Ireland sticks it to Guido Fawkes.
A while back, Guido was a bit of fun - a source of gossip and even a little political debate. In recent months, I've noticed that it has declined to being little more than a home for the right-wing, spittle-flecked green ink brigade.
I've noticed a similar descent in the comments trail of Iain Dale's site as well, which I find disappointing, as it drives away those who might actually want to contribute to debate rather than just sling mud and you end up with a comments section populated entirely by right wingnuts.
With things like Tory TV (Doughty St is leavened by a handful of non-Tory contributors, but is still funded by Conservatives) I can't help but wonder if this is just an attempt by the US-inspired right in the UK to try to create a political virtual environment operating in an entirely different dimension to the rest of us - inventing their own reality.
