Much as I disagree with his politics, I have to concede that Jeremy Hardy was on superb form on The News Quiz this week. He even managed to justify the existence of Alan Coren. The latter seems to have taken up the role of Hardy’s straight man, setting up gags for the Second Funniest Man On UK Radio Today* in a suspiciously rehearsed-sounding way. The new bloke was good too—not that I can remember his name of course. Shame Hardy doesn’t use Google before he peddles a myth as truth though, but that’s anti-war celebs for you.

[*He’s runner-up to this guy, who can’t resist linking from his site to a hugely feeble Flash attack on George W Bush.]
