Oh, dear. I think you'll be disappointed if you expect anything close to the discussion that (I flatter myself) might occur here. The Telegraph comment section seems to attract the worst kind of far-right nuts, far beyond their leftie counterparts at the Grauniad.

Oh, certainly.

But it's a place to park my non-fandom / village life rubbish (cross-posted to here, of course).

Re: Oh, certainly.

Fair enough. I've given up on following the comments after the opeds, though. Which is the exact reverse to my approach with CiF, where the article is so often poorly-thought-out rubbish that the comments are more interesting.

Indeed.

If only The Times.... Well.

Due to my hatred of registering, I was unable to comment at the torygraph. Loved your caricature on the blog. Surprised there were so few comments, but I expect they will increase as you develop a following.
re politics, a apt discussion re grocers vs grandees.

Bless.

Thankee, lass.

Thank you.

Mind, they let anyone in the door, really. As witness my announcement....

Congratulations! I look forward to reading your column.

Thank you.

It's not of course a column as such; it's more like LJ, and I don't mean to suggest that my.telegraph is at all akin to actually, well, Writing For the Telegraph. But it is a more visible place for non-fannish maunderings....

Congrats and welcome! Nice to see you there (and here, of course!)

Merci.

Although I'm simply a parasite, not one of the pack.
