Why you are wrong, by James Delingpole – Actually by Generic Parody, but indistinguishable from the original.
He’s Behind You – Adam Curtis looks at the story of Muammar Gaddafi.
David Miliband and the Labour art of speaking in code – John Harris on how Labour politicians are in the habit of writing lots while saying nothing. I’m quite sure I could find the samples needed for a Liberal Democrat version of this too, though. See also this post by Jamie at Blood and Treasure
A Warning about Matthew Brown – In the last Worth Reading, I linked to a story about American right-wingers backing an independent candidate for Lincolnshire’s police commissioner. The story gets weirder – and the candidate has now withdrawn from the contest – with the revelation that his campaign manager is a serial con artist and/or fantasist.
It stands to reason, skeptics can be sexist too – I’ve linked to similar pieces to this one by Rebecca Watson before, and so I wasn’t going to link to it. But then I saw some of the abuse she’s getting for it, and figured that it needs to be seen and read by as many people as possible.
