The Fox revealed…

An artist’s impression of Southend Fox Del Thomas.

In the light of the recent announcement that has rocked the Southend political blogosphere (Err -Ed), I have a confession to make. I have known the truth for some time, that Southend Fox was in reality Del Thomas.

Despite our political differences, Del is a good friend of mine, and I think it is demonstrative of the very best character that he has chosen to reveal his identity, now that he is standing as Conservative candidate for St Luke’s ward in the May local elections.

Anonymity can, I believe, have its place in political blogging. I don’t, though, believe that is true when the blogger is standing in an election to public office. So I salute Del’s decision, signalling as it does both his own virtue and the start of the long campaign.
