Indeed, and I think that the knee-jerk reaction is what was wanted, and what was achieved. The last thing you want is for the public to read and consider the facts.... spread some smoke around and call it a fire. I'm sure the timing is pure coincidence that there are elections on Thursday.
That is completely disingenuous, not to mention an insult to people's intelligence. It's an old political trick to call any criticism a smear - the Scots Nats used it ad nauseum in 2014. It stops any proper discussion in its tracks.

Sometimes things are just as they appear. Ken is an anti-semite of old - it's just that he's more open about it these days. Increasing age can make people far less circumspect in their opinions.

Some of the opinions expressed in this thread have been utterly depressing and dispiriting - plus ca change.
