One of the least likely enthusiasms in pop music has to be the dogged fandom of Biased BBC's own David Vance for the post-punk troubadour Elvis Costello.
Elvis fesses up to a wild youth of drugs, chicks and booze; David proudly boasts he does not lead a liberal lifestyle.
Elvis spits rage at Mrs Thatcher, the Falklands War, Rupert Murdoch, Holy Joes and the British Army; David spits rage at the BBC if it dares criticise any of the above.
None of that stops the angry young man of Biased BBC bloggery from purloining yet another Costello song title for his latest gig… having a go at his own fan base for failing to appreciate the new, improved Biased BBC:
One of my favourite soul songs is "I can't stand up for falling down."
Very brave of you to remind us of your electoral experiences with the UK Unionist Party.
Sometimes, that's how it feels here.
Failure after hope? You sure?
Thanks to the great help of others, this site has been redesigned...

You might have had a case with Trading Standards if they'd charged, David.
and had the most modern of commenting systems installed (for free).
Yet another Ulster initiative light years ahead of its critics. Like, um, the Titanic, the De Lorean... and the UK Unionist Party.
Yet when I read some comments I detect a feeling that things were better in the golden days when we had a haloscan comment system and a basic blog design.
Even your Middle East correspondent, sue, thinks so. She's reduced to thanking commenters for turning up at her postings.
Well, we now have the "new" haloscan system and a more refined design. It seems that each time anything new is attempted, all that comes back is brickbats and a desire for what was.
Traditionalists: Annoying, aren't they?
In which case....why bother? Maybe others can sort it all out?
Handing over power? Something tells me that you don't really mean that.
