still waiting

for a blaze of publicity on the Silly Boys and Salter Balls websites for Mr Salter's new blog on the Telegraph site. Anyone? Anyone? (sound of tumbleweed)

I don't understand the rationale of giving a blog to an uber-loyalist Labour toadie in the dog days of both a Labour government and his own political career. I mean really, who would possibly care? They should hire me, I'll blog for them. It'll be at least slightly more entertaining and they'd save money.

I'm not a gardener. What is tumbleweed?

ah but that's because the silly boys are quaking in their boots!

The Lib Dem candidate is trumpeting the defection of a 2005 candidate - the Monster Raving Loony candidate to be precise.

Except there wasn't one........

I agree with Mr London Street. Shall we start a campaign for him to get Salter's Telegraph blog? Facebook group anyone?

Jane, are you a fan of the late John Wayne? I looked up "tumbleweed" in Wikipedia (a publication I know you hold in high regard) and found that tumbleweed blowing in the wind is used to represent silence in "Western" films.

tumbleweed - yes it is indeed and the old Duke did have his moments, though I would not describe myself as exactly a fan. But Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer pinched the tumbleweed metaphor for their show some years ago and that is where I got it from.
