Nice one Harriet!

The website launch of Deputy Leadership candidate, Harriet Harman has caused some not inconsiderable buzz on the net. The reason? A controversial post on the subject of prostitution, where Harriet appears to advocate that it becomes a crime for a man to pay for sex contains a misspelling of the word "heroin" (the drug) spelt "heroine". Picked up on by may favourite conservative thinker's favourite pedant, a wave of traffic, trackback and comment has ensued.

As a blogger who seldom gets the chance to boast about the size of his comments thread, I have to congradulate Harriet on a fantastic bit of blog marketing.

Well done Harriet.
