There are those in the blogosphere who, supposedly concentrating on the politics of our country, regularly 'report/advertise' how many 'hits' they receive each week, thereby intimating that without their input the blogosphere would never know what is happening in the political world.
For example, this one considers the fact that this 'quote of the day' about the LibDem's time in government is far more important than the events happening in Eire. The fact that the Lib/Dems process in government could turn any damn colour you care to mention and that it would have no effect on how we are governed by Brussels, seems to matter not.
Then we have another who claims a vast readership, has various publications and hosts the odd radio programme. At times it seems all we hear about are his business activities. He proclaims that he is "Tory but not slavish - the thinking person's blog" - quoting Damien Green. Hows about a little thinking then?
We have an on-going example of a Government minister attempting to stop the election of someone to the leadership of a political party - surely an affront to our political process - yet this story seems to have passed them by. Strange for those who maintain they are the gateway to what is happening in our political world.
The idea which they seem to promote, that there are only three political parties in our country and that anything of note happens within that sphere is laughable to say the least and, more unfortunately, demonstrates 'blinkered vision'.
Now, do not misunderstand me - I am not saying that these two examples should devote all their time to matters EU and the ramifications of our membership of that body, but the odd mention would not go amiss now and again. If they are both so intent on our domestic political 'goings-on', then surely they must realise that that is slowly but surely getting increasingly strangled with the influence of the EU? One can only presume that, to coin a phrase from over the pond, they have their heads stuck where the sun don't shine.
So what say you chaps?
