    Donal Blaney

    by Sunny on 11th February, 2009 at 1:09 am    

    Blogging is almost sadistic in one sense - you’re constantly flogging similar horses every day. And you have to do it regularly and vigorously otherwise there’s no real point to is. Who’s heard of a popular blog that publishes occasionally and meanders on about different issues that are irrelevant to each other? But that sadism isn’t much different to normal work in many ways.

    Real sadism is when you’re Donal Blaney - a poor excuse for a politico who spends his time fisking a list of ‘25 Things About Me’ meme that is going around on Facebook. Blaney looks rather obsessed by Clare Hazelgrove, a 20 year old Labour PPC for Skipton & Ripon. Why? Don’t ask why, these stupid people have to spend their time somehow, right?

    Maybe he hasn’t got enough work to do as a lawyer. Last year Blaney sent me a legal letter on behalf of his ‘client’ Guido Fawkes over something on LibCon, and I ignored it because both are insufferable idiots. Not only that, he is, according to Alex, a Hypocrite, Political Whore, and Torture Fan. Add to that now: obsessive. What next?

      Donal who?

      Fisking someone’s 25 Things About Me? Think I’m going to get hold of Mr Blaney’s laundry list and really demolish it.

      And what kind of fucking name is Donal? It’s like Donald but not quite, it’s a little more than we need on a Don. Bad mojo that…

      I commented on his blog once, I forget why, he was being stupid about something. Oh, I remember, it was when he was boasting about the Tory students running a DDOS attack on Labourlist (ie an illegal activity).

      He told me my opinions don’t count because I’m “unemployed”. When I asked where he got that idea from, he said it was because I’m a house husband in my profile. Which is true, I work part time, and look after the house/kid the rest of the time while Jennie’s at work.

      Apparently looking after a household doesn’t count in Donal’s sexist arsehole world. Well, it might do for a woman I guess, but for a bloke it means “can be ignored”.

      So I’ve decided to ignore him ever since, makes life easier when you can just not read stuff written by certain people.
