Et tu, Hugh?

I read a tweet earlier today from the estimable Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, which said in response to another tweet:

Stephen has subsequently deleted this tweet, whilst retaining the link to show his own error - which is an admirable way to behave. Own up, don't hide what you got wrong, and take action:

Having seen this, I suspected that some of our BBC favourites would have leaped on that Mark Elliott tweet with all the relish of half-starved lions (especially post-Mueller). And, yes, one of my first ports of call, our old friend Hugh Sykes, was indeed on it like a lion up a massive lion-sized drainpipe that includes branches so the lion can climb up it and that already has a tasty deer carcass at the top of it to make all the effort worthwhile (#extendedmetaphorsaregreat):

I hope I'm wrong, but I'm guessing Hugh won't be owning up and deleting his tweet. 


  1. I have never found Stephen Pollard "estimable". He has always found Trump "deplorable"...why exactly?

    For me, the way I see things, our liberty hangs by a thread. One of the few factors allowing it still to hang there is that Donald Trump is US President. If he wasn't there and we had a Deep State candidate like Clinton, Biden, O'Rourke, or Romney they would be perfectly happy to see the thread cut.

    What's wrong with Pollard and why does he want the alternative of PC pro-mass immigration and pro-Sharia politicians taking Trump's place?

  2. #Extendedmetaphors - Craig, Ben Elton would be proud of you!
