    Wonder what he would make of your blog?
    You have linked us to his blog can you get him to return the favour?

    Thanks, Izzy, but disappointing nonetheless.

    I see Mr Ahmadinejad has much to learn from Eddie in both the style and frequency of his posting.

    Three months between posts? Huh!

    With a bit of luck Sean Leay won't get a look in on this one, Eddie, so you'll have first refusal on its content. The likelihood of the news conference being to time is pretty low. Sean's sounding a bit disappointed as I listen ......

    Tee Hee! serves him right for never acknowledging you when he flags up the PM programme.

    Well, he's just emerged on stage.

    Sean's filling in time with Ms Kendal.

    This is a bit like one of those royal events when everybody's waiting for something to happen.

    Hold tight, Eddie, you may still yet have it as your lead .....

    Si.

    13.18 Hm. Updating now, Sean seems to concede that he may not get a look in on this story.

    Thanks for that! Very educational.

    Do you think that somewhere in the ether an alarm is going off as lots of people in the UK suddenly access Ahmedinejad's blog?

    I wonder if we're all on a list somewhere now for suspicious web activity. Hmmm web-based-paranoia.

    Any other v.i.p's blogs we should know about Eddie?

    13.32. Okay. PM will lead on Mr. A's conference, I (fairly) confidently predict.

    Eddie's frantically typing his newsletter.

    Simon (8). I thought that exactly until I looked a little closer - there are a couple of dissenters close to the bottom, not many 'tis true.

    Mahmoud Ah-MAD-inejad: If I may say so, you've a lousy blog. No really!

    USA and UK would NEVER be so gracious as ahmindinejad. Worth remembering. Certain R4 listeners wanted to nuke him (any answers). The British are too neurotic to think properly- hence a drama becomes a crisis. END IMPERIALISM.

    Free Bird (15) "listener", in the singular, if I remember correctly. Please don't judge anyone else by the words of one nutter.

    Thank you Appy. I don't think I should be considered the same as "all the rest" for anything.

    There is very much that I don't know, but I would like to be credited for having my own opinion.

    Indeed, Izzy, indeed! :-)
