Votes flooding in

The voting pattern in the Mike Ion Vote For Your Favourite Labour Blogger stakes seems to have settled down to a consistent 1, 2, and 3. I suspect some of my success to date may stem from the fact that one of my closest blogging allies PoliticalHackUK was (disgracefully) not in the list, so avoiding a split vote. Anyway, Hack has a good post about Birmingham Council's Tory/Lib Dem coalition Deputy Leader Paul Tilsley. Tilsley, you may recall, gave an embarrassing TV interview in which he appeared to think the Welsh should be grateful to the citizens of Birmingham from tossing them out of their homes and flooding their valleys so that we could drink the water. Now it appears it was the TV station that pulled the story because "it wasn't good news". I bet Tony Blair could find that man a job.
