Imbecile of the Week #1: Daily Mail Columnist
Ladies and gentlemen, I present this week's Imbecile of the Week, a new feature inspired by the first entrant into this hallowed hall of idiocy…
Mr Pollard writes for the Daily
Royalist Mail, as well as in his blog
One such entry rails against the blatant lies spread by the Guardian over a story in Israel. Mr Pollard's point is that the Guardian (who he suggests lie about Israel on a regular basis) must be lying because what they say is contradicted by a Pro-Israeli newspaper. Now I'm not pretending that I know which is correct. But clearly Mr Pollard has no more reason to believe the Israeli newspaper than he does the Guardian, other than his own bias.
Another entry, which appeared in the Mail, explains how it is almost impossible to overstate the chaos which has engulfed the Labour party. But you can bet he'll try.
Another entry details why editors shouldn't be allowed to edit...
And here the fool fails to realise that the two sets of statistics he claims are contradictory are in fact anything but.
Oh, and he thinks McDonalds is one of the greatest achievements of mankind
According to his biography he went from being Research Director at the (left-wing) Fabian Society to Chief Leader Writer on the Daily Express… Quite an impressive u-turn.
Do send me your nominations for Imbecile of the Week. I have a nasty feeling the Daily Mail may be revisited again soon…

Heh, Israeli newspapers are some of the most appalingly biased media in the world. Up there with America. Dick. Good choice!
