Prominence proclaimed

Noted book reviewer and protest rally and literary festival-speaker Antony Loewenstein top notes himself:
In January, Reporters Without Borders and a network of exiled Sri Lankan journalists, Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka, issued an appeal signed by a number of prominent figures, including Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy, Ken Loach, Tariq Ali and me.
Oddly, Loewenstein's claim to fame was issued at less than prominent outlets: his blog, Overland literary journal and The Drum. Big-headed fish... small pond.

Loewenstein is an exiled Sri Lankan journalist?

Well, if you count the fact he considers himself a journalist and his Sri Lankan girlfriend dumped him, I suppose that's fair...

declaring yourself as a "prominent figure" - Now that is some balls.

Or just flat out deluded Narcissism.

The sort seen in zero talent incompetents everyday

Oh, glad you noticed that. Was wondering a week ago whether I should point it out in a blog post myself.
