Mocking The Afflicted

A reader from Westgate-On-Sea writes:

I must object to the distasteful trivialisation of hip replacement operations in your recent post Cheap As Hips. Many of my friends are elderly people who fought for your freedom in the war. I think I can speak for both of them when I say that I find you a living, gloating metaphor of all that's wrong with our society. Given the regularity of your postings, I can only assume that you are one more welfare sponger with an axe to grind.

Sorry old bean. I won't do it again. Promise.

What is he talking about?

now come on ECR, you must surely acknowledge that Simon is an undoubted expert in all things both distasteful and trivial as he also claims he is the worlds foremost expert on just about every other topic under the sun.

I have now bowed to his superiority and renamed my blog in his honour!

I sincerely hope they are not grooming him to take over from Roger Gale when he retires. If so god help Thanet.

I think your spoof Pensionbook is absolutly great. Very funny, especially after reading the abuse & drivel on Abuse Life.

I forgot to mention how I now feel really at home on your blog, now that it is called Welfare Sponger World.
For after serving Queen & Country for many years I am now a Crippled Welfare Sponger. I always thought they were entitlements, but I expect Lord Simes knows the true facts.

Wonderful, Biggles is rattled because your blog is becoming more interesting, and more visited!

I am a Tory! And the more you can upset the idiot that we have in Westgate, the better. He is not in the council for any reason other than to promote himself!

He is a disgrace!

Disgruntled Blue!

Nice to hear from you Mr X!

And 'Disgruntled Blue', I have to admit to being rather mystified at all the encouragement I've had recently from people purporting to be Blue Rinsers. Could it be that the old school Tory dufferism which has blighted this island for so many years is rapidly going out of fashion? Or are you just pulling my leg?

In the past the only comments I've had from the Blues have been, well, er, blue!
