At the risk of another legal action, I’m surprised no-one threw Tim Blair down a stairwell for that piece of fucktardery. What an arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

So Tim Blair did the Frightbat poll and thought it was “a bit of fun”? I hadn’t seen it before. What a pathetic low-life thing to have done.

I must go and read whatever it was that will make me think less of Tim Blair, the thing I’d never have read until he drew attention to it.

I say, isn’t that Tim Blair a glass-jawed hypocritical little turd, what? Still, could a “reasonable person” respect him even less than now?
