Politics Home distribute their distribution list

Have just received a press release from Politics Home about their latest Phi 100 survey showing that there is a big majority of opinion formers in Westminster who now think that Gordon brown is an electoral liability. Still that's not the interesting part. The interesting part is that the person that sent the press release forgot to use BCC.

Phone Call
D: Errr this is Dizzy, you just sent me a press release
PHome: Yes?
D: You didn't use BCC
PHome: Errrr yyyee errm yes we just realised.
D: Thanks for the hundred or so email addresses!
Phone: OK
D: Bye

I thought it mildly amsuing that the press release was titled "STUCK IN THE BROWN STUFF". The list included a number of hacks along with personal email addresses too. I received it twice because of that. What I really want to know though is who is "blowcheekblow@DOMAINREMOVED.com"?

Update: Am reliably informed that blowcheekblow is the UK Daily Pundit.

Update II: Look, I shan't lie, I am thoroughly puerile and childish and giggle at anything, especially something like this. So I found it all the more amusing to see my blog feed in the "unfiltered live blog feed" on Politics Home with the title of this post on it suddenly vanish. Perhaps I've been black balled for mocking? Thanks to the wonders of the 'Print Screen' button I saved it though.

An interesting email identity for UK Daily Pundit. Blowcheekblow can only be a reference to the heath scene in King Lear where he loses his sanity. "Blow wind and crack your cheeks! Rage! Blow!" (act 3 scene 2)
