Sorry, I dont have to admire Dale for anything. The man is the Paris Hilton of politics - you arent quite sure why he is famous but it clearly isnt because of his brains.And I despair at the way so many Lib Dems are prepared to puff him up like he is some latter day Socrates.
Ed, I kind of hope he will become a Tory MP. With MPs like him, the Conservatives would be soon out of competition.
Ed, I should warn you that anything I write about Iain Dale is with my IRONY SETTING in the "ON" position.
