Internet's Biggest Liar: UPDATE

Lobster Blogster's recent claim that Paul Staines is the Internet's biggest liar was well received by the recently formed Liberal Conspiracy. Probably Staines himself, who can never resist boosting his own self-image, was secretly pleased by the superlative too.

However Staines now seems to be fashioning himself as an Irish Supremacist, with this curious post centred around a book title. Conveniently over-looking the fact that St Patrick was an English missionary, Staines alludes to the notion that only the Irish can save Europe from "the bureaucrats". Staines was first tarred by the racist brush back in May 1996, when he tried to form a link between his branch of the Federation of Conservative Students and the British National Party.

You can read the original Guardian article in full here. Contrary to any assertion by Staines or his bogus publishing company, the article was never withdrawn by the paper, and is freely available at the British Library Newspapers Collection in Collingdale.




Festive Greetings!
Blogging is likely to be a bit light here at Lobster Blogster what with various Winterval events coming up, and even a wedding in Bath. Do tune back in the New Year, or maybe the Spring Equinox if you want to read about more wacky goings on at Watford Borough Council, or even further afield. If you want to get in touch before then, you can always try "mipela lawyerman", but do allow for local tides. Adios amigos!

Not that I disagree about old Guido, but I feel I have to point out that St. Patrick was actually British/Welsh, not "English".
 
Wikipedia, which is not always the most reliable I must say, gives his birth place as Banna Venta Berniae, somewhere near Carlisle, quoting De Paor and Thomas. Who am I to disagree?
 
Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it's been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is
 
Well, according to http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=89, he was born near Dumbarton. But my point was that at that point in history these areas were "British"... circa 400AD the "English" were still haning about northern Germany. ;-)
 
Good point Pendant (although you now claim St Patrick is Scottish, not Welsh). Offa of Mercia seems to be the first English king in 774, then the Anglo-Saxons got christened "the English" after the Norman invasion. All this was some time after the mid-5th century when St Patrick was about. I think we're agreed, however, that St Patrick could be called a "British" missionary.
 
Well no, because at that point in history the "Scots" were in or around Argyll, and Dumbartonshire was part of the "Kingdom of Strathclyde" ... i.e. "British" (and what we would now translate as "Welsh"). Sorry, I said I was a pedant, and I am...

Actually, these facts tie in rather well to the portrayal of Guido as a Celtic supremacist... I'm struggling to think what political tradition that aligns him with...
