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.
