EXCLUSIVE: why this blog is called Quaequam Blog!

Share This

I’ve spent all day being asked by journalists “why is your blog called Quaequam?” To start with, it isn’t. It’s called Quaequam Blog! – the blog and exclamation mark are important. Secondly, it has nothing to do with latin (I should hire Ros Taylor as my personal spin doctor – she always makes me sound so glamourous) – those Grammar school years were totally wasted, trust me.

Frankly, I think I signpost the origins of “quaequam blog!” fairly explicitly on this blog these days. The clues are all these. Ultimately, the real reason I call this site Quaequam Blog! is that for 99.9% of the population it is completely obscure while 0.1% understand it immediately. All hail obscure, pointless in-jokes!

  1. I’ll bet these journo’s mum’s threw their collections out as they headed off to journalist school 🙂

    A sad indictment of today’s press

  2. Anyway, can I suggest a blogger whipround to buy the Lib Dems an autocue?

    Did you see Newsnight last night? A succession of mumbling furblers staring at their scripts, and for some reason going on about border control all the sodding time. Nick Clegg: reading. Danny Alexander: absorbed by reading script. Simon Hughes: has joined the Surveillance Party, and anyway looks like a sweaty car dealer in 1978.

    The only competent speaker was this Scottish guy called Kennedy. Where’d we get him from?
