Orange Alert II: British blogger Stuart Bruce, who was way ahead of me on the Orange blogger suspension story (amazing what you miss when you’re on board the QM2, where internet access costs $20 an hour), also caught an aspect that I missed, which is that Inigo Wilson, the blogger in question, also posted a definition of consultation—presumably part of his community affairs job with the mobile phone company—as part of his Lefty Lexicon.

“Consultation,” he says, is “a formal system for ignoring public views while patronising them at the same time.” As Bruce points out in a comment below, that kind of attitude is a little more than just a mitigating factor in Orange’s decision to suspend the guy.

    A propos nothing at all, but have you seen the "Anagram London tube-map" at www.bbc0.com?
