I’ve done a bit of a clearing out of some dead links, also added a few new ones, in particular I’d like to draw your attention to The Michael Duffy Files (aka Loon Pond) which does a great job of keeping track of some of the strange things written by (mostly conservative) columnists in the Australian press. It’s a bit like an Australian version of Sadly, No! but the posts go into much more depth than the quick take downs of U.S. conservatives there. Some examples:
- Relevant to my previous post, there is a post about the press commentary on Ian Plimer.
- a post on some of the political issues last week, along with some well-deserved nice words for Petro Georgiou.
Also I’d particularly recommend the hilarious spEak You’re bRanes where they take the piss out of comments left on the BBC’s Have Your Say site. As well as the posts, the comments are well worth reading through as well. A couple of favourites:
- a commenter who feels compelled to comment of everything, even it’s just to say that she has nothing to say.
- a guy called Bob Jackson who appears to be the opposite of me
- some very clever people
