Facebook is just a tool... and so is Guido

Have just popped over to Guido's for his weekly bash-a-Lib-Dem thread. I would have thought that he could have come up with something better than "Ming has a Facebook profile"* to attack the man, though.

I don't get it. He has an e-mail address too, perhaps we could have a go at him for that?

No, I know exactly what this is all about. Ming's opponents have absolutely no ammunition when it comes to matters of substance, and so resort to the political equivalent of chanting "Old man, old man..."

Isn't that ultimately why it piqued your interest, Guido?

I like Ming. I like where he's taking the party - I like some of the free market reforms he's brought in. I like many of the young politicians he's promoted to his Shadow Cabinet. In that regard he's every inch a modern politician - and you'd think that young Mr. Fawkes, as a proud free-market libertarian, would be praising that.

But no - and yet he seems to have no problem cosying up to the new Tories who seem to value Polly Toynbee over Smith and Hayek. How's that for sticking to your principles?

I know Ming has an image problem in some quarters - but he will never ever have a substance problem. Sorry Guido.

* It's taken Guido a while to notice this - he joined in January.


A good post, and I agree completely.

When the opposition attack personalities over policies and style over substance, you know you're on the right track.

Guido, sadly, when all is said-and-done, is too partisan.
