- How do you protect an elected representative who can’t debate?
- What do you say when the political horse you backed turns out to be a complete numpty who doesn’t understand how to make an argument?
- How should you go about protecting the fool of an MP who doesn’t have the first clue about responding to questions, let alone criticism?
Answer – attack the opposition, silence those who point out your man’s obvious flaws and hope that he (and you) will just keep muddling on without anybody noticing. So you lie and you libel them on sites where they have no ability to respond, you create petty little obstacles over newly asserted copyright claims and you basically act like children who can’t admit that they backed a numpty. And in so doing you reveal your own inadequacy along with your MP’s.
