On the subject of people who disagree, but aren’t disagreeable – does anyone who is reading this know of some Right-leaning blogsites that are not uncontrollably Tourette’s in their ability to discuss things rationally? Years ago, my early forays into the political blogosphere led me to Brackenworld, which had some wit but always reminded me of the beer drinking voice in the Streets’ Irony of it all – the Union Jack face paint maybe does it.
But: Dizzy, Iain Dale, Guido, the CoffeeHouse ranters, the 1000’s of people getting apoplectic underneath Jeff Randall columns – it’s like listening to the last 5 people in a Surrey golfclubhouse, when one of them has mentioned Immigrants and Gordon Brown. I can’t deal with it. Politically, I’m probably equidistant between Paul and this lot – but I can have polite conversation with Paul.
So: is this intrinsic to right wing blogs, or have I just been unlucky? Who would be in the top 5 Right Of Centre but Not a Saloon Bar Bore list?
