Little Nicky looked in on the excellent Mr. Eugenides today and found that estimable blogger complaining of the way people like him and my good self are often characterised as curmudgeonly misanthropes by the kind of people who would have you all believe that everything we are told by politicians, the meeja and people who have a vested interest in avoiding being made to answer difficult questions.
So are we and other such bloggers wrong to be sceptical of all that THEY tell us. Should we be a little more trusting, try harder to see the positive aspect of things and always look on the bright side of life (dee dum deedumdeedumdeedum) ?
Well to help decide whether us whiners, carpers and moaning bastards can safely be ignored or whether in fact, despite all out best efforts we can never adequately depict the depth of cynicism, duplicity and hypocrisy that prevails in public life, Mr. E. pointed me at this item on Guido Fawkes blog concerning Labours exploiting the sad death of Gwyneth Dunwoody for political gain by carrying out a data mining exercise on visitors to the tribute website set up in her honour.
You will be gobsmacked at the sheer gall of these people, and yet when found out they complain that telling the truth about their mendacious machinations is grossly unfair.
