I usually try and avoid using PP to take take personal digs at other bloggers, but I couldn’t resist this time, sorry. I really tried, honest.
Last week David T wrote about an ongoing argument between Johann Hari the commentator and Scott Burgess the blogger, over climate change. I waded in with a flippant remark:
Why is Johann even bothering to reply? Scott Burgess spends all his time wanking off with attempts to debunk climate change and thrives on journalists coming back to him so he can wank off that even more. I’m just disappointed his much vaunted ‘The Muslim Brotherhood translation project’ wasn’t about 10,000 pages long so he’d still be wanking over that.
A bit vulgar, but about right I thought.
Not sure on how to get back at me, Burgess posted this on Monday.
The reasons behind his tirade become clearer, however, when one recalls that the mud-hurler in question is founder of something called “Asians in Media” – an organisation that, due in part to posts here, has one less potential member.

Burgess refers to Dilpazier Aslam, the Guardian journalist he helped get the sack (without Harry’s Place picking it up he would have been ignored). So he thinks I’m having a crack at him because I was annoyed over the Aslam controversy.
If Burgess had done a quick search on AIM he would have found this article where I approved of the decision in giving him the sack. D’oh!
And of course, my support for Hizb ut-Tahrir is legendary around these parts. Better luck next time Burgess.
