that is all I have to say
but he was on telly the other day and he looks about 45 (which is what he is).
Also, I'm not sure whether I'm a 'liberal', but he sure has got me annoyed.
my favourite part was when he told the Nobel prize-winning scientist what science is, whilst completely missing any point whatsoever.
He was on Daily Politics with Caroline Lucas. It was pretty tame, despite his efforts at trolling her.
he's attacked Paul Nurse for doing a programme that included a segment on climate change when he isn't a climate scientist. Unfortunately, he failed to take that thought process a step further and decide that perhaps he should stop writing about climate change himself.
you'll get the non-*intentionally confrontational and twatish* version of why they're doing it.
• Tension in Fleet Street this morning as the Daily Telegraph starts publication of its own WikiLeaks, those the Guardian, New York Times etc have either published already or decided were not worth killing trees for. It is the climax of a campaign by the Telegraph – owned by secretive and sensitive tax exiles Dave and Fred Barclay – to attack the Guardian in order to impress sensitive and secretive WikiLeaks supremo "Julian Assange. The campaign culminated in yesterday's strange claim that David Leigh and Luke Harding's new WikiLeaks book "outed" Private Bradley Manning as Assange's source for all those diplomatic cables. Alas, Bradley outed himself and was betrayed. He now languishes in military custody. Having used its first venture into data journalism – those bootlegged CDs on MPs' expenses – to duff up Labour and protect the Cameroons, the WikiCrumbs present the Telegraph with a new test of what constitutes the public interest. Its suppression for commercial reasons of taped evidence of Vince Cable's "war on Rupert Murdoch" is not encouraging."
