War of words: Louise Mensch vs Peter Hitchens (or could it be Steerpike?)

While Mr S is used to reporting from the sideline on Twitter wars, he tends to refrain from taking part in them. So Steerpike was amused to find himself in Louise Mensch’s firing line this morning. His sin? Being Peter Hitchens, apparently.

Mensch accused the Mail on Sunday columnist of being the author of this very column. She said that unlike Hitchens, she didn’t write stories about him. When Hitchens pointed out that he hadn’t written about Mensch for seven years, the former Tory MP suggested that he was in fact… Mr Steerpike:

While Mr S is sorry to break the news that he is not, in fact, Hitchens, happily, this revelation didn’t get in the way of the pair’s spat, with Hitchens going on to ask Mensch if her tweets were written by a Teletubby.

Curiously Mensch has evaded the question leaving Mr S to ask: Is Louise Mensch actually a Teletubby? More conspiracy theories welcome.
