But then it all went downhill. First, after Nadine Batchelor-Hunt responded to his Colorado riff with “as a white guy you shouldn’t be telling black people what is the right or wrong way to protest their oppression” (seconded), he came over all snippy.
Then he lost it completely by RTing the Spectator USA, which had told potential readers “‘We are witnessing glimmers of the full insurrection the far-left has been working toward for decades. The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was merely a pre-text for radicals to push their ambitious insurgency,’ writes [Andy Ngo]”. Oh dear.
But all the time he does this, Andrew Neil’s reputation is diminished. And so, sadly, is the Beeb’s. Most people have retired by the time they pass their 70th birthday. Just a thought.
