Well, isn't that just typical.

Having written one or two rather critical articles about Louise Mensch in recent days, it seems only fair to say that

A) I think her response to some muck raking by a so called' investigative journalist' is brilliant, and

B) I think by putting the record straight on what she said about Piers Morgan, she's done exactly the right thing.

I also think David Allen Green raises some interesting issues about just who this investigative reporter is. More there than meets the eye perhaps.

Anyway, now we can all concentrate on the real DCMS Select Committee issues. Huzzah.


  1. I'm not so sure about her. I liked her response, but if I understand her views on (not) dercriminalising drugs correctly, she's saying that if someone tonight did what she did years ago they should be jailed. When I do it it's foolish / when you do it is criminal. Not quite so impressive?

  2. Yes, she's not very consistent is she? But having called for to apologise to Piers a few times and various other issues I felt the need to be even handed.

    Her inconsistency has shown itself again recently as I've blogged before... http://aviewfromhamcommon.blogspot.com/2011/07/dear-louise-mensch-its-not-one-rule-for.html
