What goes around comes around.

The blogosphere really is a shitty little place sometimes. Out-tabloiding the tabloids and proud of it.

I'd like my readers (both of them) to dig around. Guido Fawkes / Recess Monkey: Identities please? Who are they? What do they Do? (No jokes about bombing Westminster or sitting on fires please)

Who pays them to do it? Are they married? Children? Where do they live? Do they have any sexual leanings that we need to know about? Have they said anything in the past that they may have contradicted recently?

I'm getting somewhat more flack than I truly deserve on this

In amongst the references to Oaten being a perv were references to opik having been hit by an asteroid and MI5 arranging to kidnap Leo Blair.

If you want to know more about me, come out for a drink - but my ID's no secret and 5 minutes on google will probably resolve that for you. might even be on my own site

but when you do get in touch, would you mind explaining the racial epithets contained herein
before having a go at me?

Recess Monkey you deserve everything you get you miserable shit-stirrer.

This whole business leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

I know that attack is the best form of defence, but is the reference of a test-blog to an Irish joke the best you can do?

Have a look at the rest of my blog to see if you can find any other references to Ireland, the Irish, etc.

Seriously though RM, you can expect stick from people when you take such obvious delight in the misfortunes of others. Half the blogs I read (including plenty of the ones that have been gloating about Oaten's demise) spend a lot of the time saying how much better they are at reporting politics.

Well, this weekend, they've been a lot less responsible or fair-minded than the MSM. And if someone said that about me, I'd take it as an insult.

I've got "Doogle" linked on my site on the "daft stuff" list.

I got it from Slugger O'Toole, who is himself Irish:

My conscience, therefore, rests easy.

Actually, I agree with Paulie here: Recess Monkey and Guide are getting all the flack they deserve, spurious links to "racist" Irish jokes aside. I hope people write them off for their unashamed and inexcusable tabloid witch-hunt.
