Special mention must to to the excellent Guacamoleville. For the unenlightened, this is a blog entirely devoted to the upcoming Hartlepool by-election. It is cutting and insightful as well as very entertaining. It has been recommended by BBC News. I reckon it’s also very popular – when I was lucky enough to get a mention, my hit counter went into overdrive! Why Guacamole? Apparently, rumour has it, Peter Mandelson can’t tell the difference between mushy avocados and mushy peas! I’m sure there’s no truth in it though – but Mandy bashing is such an entertaining sport isn’t it?
