CiFView: Three Questions

I'll be away for a short while due to work commitments. With reference to this post on Liberal Conspiracy, here are three questions to ponder while I'm away...

1) Who said of a prominent British politician: "Jester, toff, self-absorbed sociopath and serial liar, the man could still win."?

2) Who referred to opponents of the EU reform treaty as "Euro-crazies" and "Euro-hysterics"?

3) Who described a British icon dead for ten years as "a sad neurotic", "brainless" and "a celebrity who believed her own hype"?


UPDATE: 8/12
This was posted in response to Paulie (of 'Bloggertarians' fame). The answers to the questions above are:

1) Polly Toynbee, in her Guardian column entitled 'Boris, The Jester, Toff, Serial Liar and Sociopath for Mayor', published on July 17th 2007 (Link)

2) Polly Toynbee, in her Guardian column entitled 'We can't let the Euro-crazies drag us out of the club', published on October 16th 2007 (Link)

3) Polly Toynbee, in her Comment is Free article entitled 'Live and Let Di' on April 27th 2007 (Link)

Full explanation: here, follow-up post here.
The latest installment in the 'Bloggertarians' saga is up at Paulie's blog here.
