On SkyNews, Brendan O'Neill: "Something very odd happened today, which calls into question who is the supreme authority in this country. It no longer looks like it's the gov't."

"You don't know the first thing", is usually a figure of speech. With O'Neill, it's quite literal.
You'd find "who is the supreme authority" in a Parliamentary Democracy in the first para of the Wiki page, Brendan. It would be the back cover synopsis of Parliamentary Democracy for Dummies.The first page of a UK Constitution for Toddlers pop-up book. IT'S IN THE FUCKING NAME.
Why do @SkyNews and @BBCNews give a platform to these Spiked Online morons? I mean, seriously? If, on the biggest cocking news day in living memory, all you can rustle up is Brendan O'CockingNeill, just DON'T DO THE COCKING SEGMENT.
He is what would happen if a regular idiot was bitten by a radioactive idiot, then trapped in a lab full of moron rays.
The more eagle-eyed among you, may gave gleaned that I'm not a fan of Brendan.
JEEZUSFECKINGCHRIST though, it's like I just accidentally wandered into a GCSE politics remedial class.

Read a book, Brendan. Any book.

No, fuck the book. Baby steps.

Read a shopping list. A road sign. A napkin. Anything could lift you up, from where you currently are.
Do you know how many times I've said no to shows that invite me, because I feel ill-equipped to contribute on an issue and don't want to make a complete arse of myself?

How do these people's minds work? Do they always just say "sure, I'll come on and make a tit of myself"?
- We need someone to comment on Superstring theory. You up for it, Bren?

- Sure. I don't know what that is, but sure.

- Can you stay on for the segment on period pain?

- Sounds good.

- Can you do the weather forecast, too?

- Absolutely. Because I have OPINIONZ.
No. Just no.

News cannot keep wringing its hands about the devaluing of expertise, while giving a platform to these absolute assclowns.
This might be the end of the rant.
