Strictly Guevara

We’ve covered the press in relation to Lib Dem peer Paul Tyler over the last week in two pieces – first where he was given the slightly unlikely epithet of Che Guevara and secondly when he took a little flak for asking the BBC to publish the full details of the Strictly Come Dancing final vote.

It’s worth remembering that Lord Tyler is part of the excellent Lords of the Blog effort, and last night, he took the opportunity to answer his critics.

It strikes me that politicians are constantly under fire for being ‘out of touch’, not residing in the world that people outside the Westminster bubble do. Yet when a parliamentarian takes an interest in TV shows that have attracted public attention, he is denounced for wasting time and money. It seems that we are both too aloof and not aloof enough.
