    How about Crikey employ Maurice Newman as a columnist (unpaid of course)? It would be your answer to any claim of left wing bias. It would also provide your loyal readers with an ongoing insight into alternative realities. I do acknowledge it would make life very difficult for anyone writing satire for Crikey.

      There have been several occasions in the last few weeks when it seemed that BenP had snaffled BK or even grundle’s by-line.
      We have again reached the point where Tom Lehrer gave up satire and returned to maths at MIT – reality has become too ridiculous.
