Labour claims 'highest ranked UK politico in World of Warcraft' title
A London councillor has claimed to be the highest-ranked UK politician in World of Warcraft, boasting that his Undead Destruction Warlock PlaguePit has reached level 85.
Theo Blackwell, the Labour finance chief of Camden Council, told the Reg that he would continue to claim the title until another elected representative of the people came forward with a better score.
I haven't encountered any other local councillors or MPs in Azeroth so far, but you never know if they hide behind their avatars. I suspect many Liberal Democrats to be out there. Until others reveal themselves I'm claiming this title.
Councillor Blackwell's prowess in the game was first reported yesterday in the Camden New Journal. The Journal suggested that the strategic alliances and resource management required from Warcraft players could give Blackwell useful skills for his day job, though raised the worry that he was spending too long on the site.

2. Ditto...except that there are much better MMO's out there to sink one's time into.
EverQuest 2 and Rift immediately come to mind.
Also Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile for good clean hack 'n' slash fun.
Diablo 3 may redeem itself one day, but right now the world hates that hunk of shit.
