A dead tree writes

On the only occasion I ever used any information from the blog run by Paul Staines (nee Guido Fawkes) for a story in Private Eye, he got very stroppy and sent me an email headed "Don't cut 'n paste stories without attribution".

Still, it's good to see his own investigative zeal is still intact.

So unfair. Poor Paul can't put in the journalistic legwork now that one of them's constrained by an electronic tag that keeps him in at night.

D'you think when he was in the dock in front of the magistrates for drink-driving and driving without insurance he insisted on being blacked-out, like he did when he went on Newsnight?

I don't read Private Eye so I didn't know it was from there - I got it from CiF's comments.

It was made abundantly clear in the comments where it came from originally.

Good work, which I will build on.

18-month supervision order, three-year ban, three months on a tag. The court was more gentle with him than were Paxo and White when they took an end each.
