A letter to Conservative Central Office

Dear Conservative Central Office person,

If your party leader has got his facts wrong, editing Wikipedia to try to hide this isn’t likely to work. (Whisper it quietly, but, you know, there are other places people get information from.) Editing from a Conservative Party IP address is also likely to be spotted.

Yours,

Mark

PS Nice to know though that it was someone in Conservative Central Office who made the anonymous comment on LDV last year saying, “I would hate to live in Dr Packs bitter world of bile”. I may well quote that as an endorsement in future 🙂

    Blimey Mark – you mean there are Conservatives who don’t like you?

  • Even without the Wikipedia shenanigans, I’m sure this is the kind of thing that makes the general public wonder what planet politicians come from. Arguments in the House of Commons about how old Titian was when he died, for God’s sake!

  • PMs coverage of this on radio 4 was a little disappointing. Surely they could’ve located a reliable source for Titian’s actual age that wasn’t wikipedia, even if just as an aside.

    Though why the hell Cameron thought anyone gave a monkey’s is beyond me. Maybe if I’d been to Eton I’d understand…?

    Agreed about LBJ, Hywel. One of his big strengths was gaining votes in Congress for his bills, by hook or by crook.
