The Daily Mail of Blogs

"Dave Bish’s The Blue Fish Project is an interesting blog. Theologically very conservative it can sometimes feel like a giant in-joke but persevere, there is some biblical treasure to be found. It works for me in the same way as the Daily Mail. I disagree with loads of it but feel compelled to read occasionally."

  1. oh man, that's a whole load of insult and compliment all in one go... Fancy being compared to the daily mail... (it makes me shudder) Ah well, at least we can rest assured in the lack of hysterical moralising found on these here pages. A nicer comparision might have been to the Tory Graph if we're going down the conservative comparision route!

  2. Well, at least you aren't being compared to the Express. Unless I missed that series on Princess Diana.

  3. i laughed so loud that I'm suprised I didn't wake you up in the middle of the night.

    It could be worse tho - you could have been compared to the Sun!

    WTG Dave for making such a big impact!

  4. Trouble is, once you've got a rep to maintain it's the beginning of the end....

  5. Ah well, at least it wasn't the Spectator. Ah well, at least it wasn't the Grauniad. Ah well, at least it wasn't the Independent. Ah well at least it wasn't the Times. Ah well at least it wasn't thelondonpaper, London Lite or Metro.

  7. I'm not sure what the in joke is though. Are you guys keeping something from me?

  8. That's hilarious. I also spluttered with laughter, hope I didn't wake my housemate!

  9. Hahahahaha.

    I'm laughing at the Dail Mail comment. Not the in-joke. Which I missed, by the way. What is it?

  10. Also, why no Relay 3 blog? I know you missed some of the talks, but the blogosphere has been very quiet on the conference, which is sad.

  13. You see the thing with words is you just gotta read 'em. My relationship with Dave's blog is like my relationship with the Daily Mail. The blog is nothing like the Daily Mail. It's articulate, gracious and far further to the right.

  14. It was a most articulate comment.
    And in all seriousness, honoured that you chose to mention me in your article.

  15. Are you far to the right Dave? I can't say I'd noticed.

  16. At what point do you go so far to the right that you pop up on the left again?

  17. All depends on the perspective of the one commenting, whether you're left, right, or somewhere on the other side of the sphere and he's looking at you with the wrong geometry :)
