Those who know me will be aware that I am one of the world’s most modest individuals, have absolutely no self-aggrandising tendencies and would never under any circumstances seek to blow my own trumpet ……
So it goes without saying that the only reason I would want to draw attention to the statement, referring to me, in the Guardian last week (in its “Metropolitan Lines” newsletter) is to correct one small inaccuracy. What the Guardian said was:
There are now quite a few good blogger-politicians. Lord Toby Harris is one of the best.”
The error, 0f couse, is that I am not a “politician”, but – to use Al Gore’s phrase – a “recovering politician”.
I hope that’s clear.
