‘Tonto’ in manifest bollocks shocker!

John Coulter discusses his latest (hilarious!) Flying Column with a female fan...

Fearless reporting from John ‘Tonto’ Coulter in today’s Irish Daily Star!

It seems Bobballs was among those, er,  recognised in this year’s catchily titled ‘Coulter Coveted Cock-Up Awards sponsored by Coulter’s Fearless Flying Column’… and how!

Drop the science Tonto:

The Gobshite Cup goes to Irish political blogging for all its terrific support of the Fearless Flying Column in 2009.

Top sites are the UUP arse-licking Bobballs, A Pint of Unionist Lite, and Three Thousand Versts of Loneliness. Keep pumping out that shite folks; sorry, that should read informed political comment.

High fives A Pint of Unionist Lite and Three Thousand Versts for joining Bobballs on the correct side of sanity.

Though sadly, I fear Tonto has misrepresented ol’ Bobballs. I’m just as likely to slap the UUP as playfully diggle it to death with hugely engorged opinionata. Erm, so to speak.

But nevertheless here’s a few of the reasons why we made the ‘Fearless Flying Column’ (eh?) for 2009:

(The crazy Batman adjectives are entirely justified given the kind of Joker we’re dealing with here. Geddit!!)

Blogging is a relatively costless operation. I can carry on endlessly. But Coulter’s weekly dose of manifest bollocks (informed political comment shurely? Ed.) is paid for by the Irish Star and his column also occupies valuable advertising space. Thankfully, that regrettable situation cannot continue endlessly.

Happy New Year Tonto!

PS. When questioning my independence, I’m sure it’s only for reasons of space that John failed to declare his own interests in the UUP. According to the sixth edition of the Register of Members Interests published in November, UUP MLA Rev Robert Coulter (father of ‘Tonto’) has stated:

I employ my son as a researcher and P.R./press secretary/officer.

Erm… isn’t there some conflict in operating as a political columnist whilst also serving the interests of a rep from one political party in particular? I’m sure John will set the record straight in his next column!

I have to admit that this character has not been on my radar previously.

Remember this little ditty

“If you get a mention, you will get attention”

So congratulations are in order.

A happy new year to you

Many congratulations to you all. Well done! I’m slightly miffed that, once again, my blog has been ignored. Jeff Peel.

Congratulations Bobballs. I never get a mention in the Scottish press. 😦 They have their favourites of course and I’m too opinionated for them I think.

Happy New Year to you and yours.
