Himself wins! By the narrowest of margins (156 votes over 155 for "Evil Amerikkka" at the time of posting) the BlairPoll™ predicted that today's Phillip Adams column would be about Phillip Adams - and so it proved. Count the references to "I', "me", and "my" mixed in with his self-serving story of a young Aboriginal woman speaking at a conference Phil attended. Some highlights:

I want to tell you about an experience ...
It was my job to deliver a keynote address ...
I attend a lot of conferences like this ...
I was impressed ...

Several other conference speakers aren’t even named. Congratulations, Phil.

Oh, come now Tim. How else are we to find out more about the glorious phenomenon that is Phillip Adams if Phillip Adams doesn't tell us about it?

Yeesh, you're such a reactionary.

Surely we dont have a TB reader who gets thingy about old phlatulent phil (millionaire grunter at a taxpayer funded AlpBC microphone) getting some well deserved servings.
Let it roll on - The gastropod deserves to get the same villification as he doles out to the PM and anyone else who is not a willy wamker of the left.
