Ian Hislop a Tory? It was ever thus.

I've written elsewhere about how Mr Heaven (of Telegraph blogs fame) had been barking up completely the wrong tree by suggesting that Ian Hislop had undergone a Damascene conversion on Question Time the other week when he supposedly realised his anti-Tory jokes were falling flat. Well, I think Hislop's line of attack on Have I Got News for You this week proved my point beyond doubt - even Boris Johnson's 'Piffle Tower' is apparently beyond criticism, because "at least Boris is elected" (hint, hint). Now far be it from me to defend Gordon Brown, but I don't think Ian Hislop is the only one who needs a quick refresher course on how a parliamentary democracy is supposed to work...
