Paul Staines, aka Guido Fawkes, in my opinion has set back the credibility of serious bloggers, by publishing his scurrilious post on the hotel living arrangement of William Hague and his Spad .
Having read his post. I find it highly objectionable in that that he promotes unfounded rumours about the foreign secretary without any proof of sexual impropriety.
Having read his blog, I am more inclined to imagine, that he is more interested in keeping his blog hit, stats up, than keeping any sense of integrity.
On my blog, I might be an intemperate old fart, but I would never, ever, impugn someone’s reputation over a mere trifle, without positive proof. To imply an assertion without proof is downright wrong.
Maybe he’ll post with some revelation in the next few days to support his assertions. If not, I would hope that he has the decency to apologise.
I’m not holding my breath.
