A quickie: Iain Dale

Way back in the mists of time, during the whole Damian McBride affair, Iain Dale wrote anDaily Mail article (now no longer there) that implicated Tom Watson in the scandal, suggesting he was CC'ed in on the emails. This was not true, and so, Tom sued, and was successful.

Iain has now apologised in full on his blog, but is a little annoyed that a few left leaning bloggers are creating a fuss over what is a minor incident (see here). Personally, I'd say that given that us lefties had to endure 2 weeks worth of relentless attack from the mainstream media and the rightwing blogosphere that culminated in a Gordon Brown having to issue a public apology, all over the existence of a few smear stories that were NEVER GOING TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY. I think a few harsh words from a bunch of leftie bloggers is getting off rather lightly.
