Nick Robinson, and playing the ball…

Yesterday Miss Fitz blogged here for the first time in ages. Then someone came on and told her that her blog was boring. And that was it. For myself, I don’t mind if people don’t like what we’ve written. If you can pull it apart bit by bit, all to the good. But if you are going to criticise (or even praise) something written on the blog, then please take a leaf out of Nick Robinson’s book/blog and kindly tell us why you feel the way you feel. Otherwise all we get is a series of smug one liners devoid of any discernable content. And that is really, really boring.
