OMG!!!! Labour MP's embarrassing Blog
I was having a wee butchers at the BBC site when I came across this article

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3053137.stm

It has a touch of Ali G, a smattering of 70s slang and a huge chunk of cringe-inducing text-style chatter.
So much so, that Labour MP Tom Watson's ironic appeal to the nation's youth is becoming an unlikely hit in the internet community.

Mr Watson is part of a tiny new movement at Westminster - one of two MPs with weblogs. And his "teens" page is rapidly raising the profile of the Westminster bloggers.

"Cut it with the bling bling and do something for the community, man," the West Bromwich MP appeals. "Drop Tom a line for a quiet rap by the electronic e-mail.

"Tom's well up on the Interwebnet, and he won't harsh your buzz or dis you down the line."


Here is the offending blog. Reading this is akin to watching your dad dancing really badly at a party. Very embarrasing (although you might find it a bit amusing)

I mst warn you that the other MP with a blog is my old MP Richard Allen but I'm guessing he doesn't make a complete twat of himself on his.

2. It's almost perfect in its awfulness
isn't it? Not just awful, exuberantly awful, they hit every wrong note with gusto. It's beautiful, thanks for the laffs.
