    New Statesman socks it to Guido

    by Sunny on 7th March, 2007 at 12:37 am    

    This is in the latest edition of the magazine by Kevin Maguire:

    Hilarity in Strangers’ at a pompous threat by the right-wing blogger Paul Staines, aka Guido Fawkes, to sue the former defence minister “Tommy Gun” Watson and assorted lefties. Gossipmonger Staines exposed himself as able to dish it out but not take it back over an approach he once made to the BNP. Worried of Cyberspace claims he wrote seeking common ground to expose fascists rather than to sign up, and has issued OTT legal threats to Tommy Gun and any fellow bloggers reprinting a 20-year-old Grauniad story about his youthful activities. Occasional victims of his site are enjoying the squeals of a hunter who so publicly dislikes to be hunted. [hat tip: Justin McKeating]

      Oh no, not Guido - again!

      Sunny, give it up. Surely you would do better to have a bloggers blog where these sort of things can be commented upon until everyone is blue in the face, or go sue themselves.

      Let Guido do his thing and you do yours.

      We know you love New Labour, no need to continue proving it!

      Enjoyed you on 18DoughtyStreet by the way!

      I find it highly amusing that Paul Staines’ reactions has spawned a number of mimic sites and an article in the NS. If he’d just left it alone none of this would happened, talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!

      yeah i guess he never learned from the cartoons controversy did he.

      Heh, thanks Chris.
