Do the British parties operate some kind of rota system by which their MSPs and MPs take it in turns to make fools of themselves? Or are the likes of Ross Thomson actually volunteering for the privilege of being allowed to debase themselves in the name of their anti-democratic British nationalist ideology?
Is Thomson genuinely as abysmally stupid as he appears? Or is it merely a very convincing performance?
Even if one had no first-hand knowledge or experience of the domain name renewal process, would not a person of normal intelligence simply assume that this would fall due on a particular date? How else might it work? And yet Ross Thomson seems to be quite convinced that senior figures in the SNP could barely wait to get into the office on the Monday following conference so that they could personally attend to a trivial administrative task which would have been done automatically anyway.
Or is it that he supposes the rest of us are as stupid as he seeks to appear? Does he really think people will be fooled into sharing his comically melodramatic outrage? Of course, he will be aware that British nationalist fanatics will lap this up. In general, they certainly are stupid enough to believe whatever #SNPBAD drivel oozes out of the likes of Thomson. But what possible reason is there to suppose that others will be so foolish?
And what of the role played by Tom Gordon and The Herald in this farce? It may be that Ross Thomson simply can’t help himself. It’s entirely possible that he would be an idiot regardless. But, at the very least, the willingness of the British media to pander to such inanity must encourage it.
When incompetent and indolent journalists indulge the buffoonery of bladders like Thomson they insult the intelligence of every one of us and do a grave disservice to our politics and to democracy in general.Views: 4040
