Champagne and Strawberries
Posted Wednesday, 1 June 2011 at 16:32
The New Statesman is a publication of strong opinion. The socialist-Spectator, sans Pol Roger, it sometimes has very strong opinions about me.
Not that I'm complaining mind (yes, I know, Eyore is a favourite). However, being savagely torn apart, disemboweled, humiliated and publicly mocked comes entirely complimentary with the MP turf and I am more used to it than most.
But when a publication which is politically opposed to you produces a poll which supports your position, its a bit like sinking your teeth into a sweet fat juicy strawberry which has first been dipped in melted Belgian chocolate. It's SO good.
Prior to Newsnight last week a friend tipped me off that a New Statesman poll had found that 53% of its readers agreed that abstinence should be taught in school.
That's not 53% of parents, Catholics, nuns, or chastity belt wearers - but 53% of the Socially liberal left readers of the New Statesman.
What can I say to top that? Pass me the Pol Roger to wash down that strawberry!
