Celebrity political gossip 2

Apparently Lembit Opik has tweeted thusly: "Pls back Nadine Dorries – victim of witch hunt by her party, and 'on trial' with no opportunity to even know she's been suspended"

Apparently, somebody in the press bubble imagines that there's somebody out there in Real Life Land who actually cares what Lembit Opik thinks about Nadine Dorries running off to appear on reality TV. Bless.

It's liberating to discover a real thing that I almost literally couldn't care less about. In a world full of news that's serious, complicated and hard, it's like having a great big fluffy comfort blanket to cling to.

Maybe there is a point to celebrity political gossip, after all.
