  • S Fry leaving twitter is 3rd-top story on BBC. Say *what*? #
  • /What the hell motivates climate change denialistidiots? Is it just blind contrarianism, or do they actually *want* to destroy the world #
  • I wish the right-wing party set to win the next election was made up of Economist writers, instead of idiots: http://bit.ly/3m18xu #
  • Things I dislike, from either side of the political spectrum: the casual equation of "feminist" and "puritan". e.g. http://bit.ly/2arVvy #

  • That part of original Grauniad piece also a bit ropey: http://tr.im/BC9v "unqualified local man" had a government hazardous waste license #
  • …none of which excuses the gagging attempts, obviously. Oh, and nice to see Carter-Ruck trending #trafigura #
