Epic win

* * * * * * *

Hearty congratulations to fellow blogger Niall Connolly, whose criticism of Somerton Town Council in his blog, Muck & Brass, has led to the en masse resignation of 11 of the 15 councillors.

Though I haven't yet read through the whole blog, this post gives an idea of the kind of people Mr Connolly has been up against.

The media, however, has focussed mostly on the so-called "abuse" of the councillors. In reality, you have to look hard to find the quoted insults such as "clowns" and "hypocrites" - hardly the unbearable torrent of abuse claimed by the councillors.

A report in The Times and a clip from Newsnight here.
