In a survey of internet users, the vast majority said that right-wing blogger Guido Fawkes was no longer relevant and should gracefully retire from the political scene he once irrefutably dominated. As one said:
When his party, the Conservatives, were in opposition, it was relevant to satirise and make fun of the left, who were in power, but now he’s just flogging a dead horse.
And as another ex-fan explained:
Since the last election, Fawkes is a mere shadow of his former self. He’s still making fun of Gordon Brown and reduced to digging out MP’s minor expenses receipts while completely ignoring obvious targets such as the Home Secretary blaming cat ownership for rising crime and the economy tanking under George Osborne.
Or as one less tactful internet user put it:
Just go already Guido.
