The Voice of the Mirror strikes again - smeargate.

The voice of the Mirror is not happy with the blogosphere. I wonder who he is? Some kind of journalistic genius judging by this previous article. Here's what he has to say today:
The "smeargate" emails scandal has thrown open the weird world of political blogging.

This blogosphere is largely populated by the cretinous, infantile forums of abuse dressed up as argument - pompous prigs of all political persuasions passing themselves off as intellectuals.

But the power of these small-minded attention seekers has seduced the real political world into thinking they actually matter. They don't.

The schoolboy nature of No 10 aide Damian McBride's missives to Labour's resident flake Derek Draper confirms the real level of political debate on the internet. To call it moronic would be an insult to morons.

More concerning is that Labour believes that Mr Draper, a professional liability with an endless capacity for self-pity, is deemed a fit and proper person to be at the vanguard of the party's digital ambitions.

Gordon Brown should heed the demands of his MPs and make it clear Mr Draper will have nothing to do with future campaigns..
Oooo get her. Is that you Kevin?

He deserves it all, what a creep.

It probably is him — it's in his style. I recall a few months ago when even the editor of The New Statesman had to apologise to commenters about a Maguire article they'd published, and promise not to repeat the error…

Of course, the Mirror could have two (or more) in the same class — it wouldn't be surprising as that sort would naturally gravitate toward the dying rag that is The Mirror.

Kevin's only making sure that Draper is out of the picture to protect his own standing as the village idiot the BBC call in to insult the nasty Toreez.

It must be Kevin. He's not be answering Guido's messages this weekend and they're supposedly drinking pals.

Let it be a lesson to you Steve, be careful who you meet in the pub.
