Rod Liddle for editor of the Independent!
Do we at Team Exile really give a stuff if Rod Liddle becomes editor of the Independent or not? David Lindsay does and he persuaded this and some other blogs to support his campaign to get Liddle appointed to the Indie's top job. This we did largely to keep Lindsay quiet as when he gets an idea in his head there is no shutting him up. However, it is now emerging that Liddle's appointment would annoy all the right people, so let's hear it for Rod.
So disturbed are the ideologically pure at heart that Will Straw, Jack's drug dealing offspring, has decided to try and smear Rod as an anti-Semite. Reading the post it is obvious that the blog's punters aren't wearing that one, but the smear is in and will no doubt be picked up by the metropolitan wankerati.
To make matters even nicer there are reports that Diane Abbott may put down an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons denouncing any move that would see Rod Liddle in the editor's chair.
It is all just too sweet for words. The wankerati are tugging themselves into a frenzy so let's hope that Liddle gets the job if only for the entertainment value alone.
