Reading the latest of what passes for news, I see that the bad boy from Basingstoke prompted Caroline Lucas to report him after setting Twitter squawking with his expressed desire to see a teenager drown in the Atlantic ocean. Well, when you put it that way.
Having incited my own much more modest mob a number of years ago, and being versed in tribal politics, I will admit to finding merit in his non-apology: “Obviously I don’t hope she encounters a freak yachting accident! … I just enjoy watching the ludicrous tweeter mob following the next outrage.” Doubtless he spat out the bones of a baby kitten immediately after providing that quote.
The news. It just keeps on coming.
