Maybe Polly Toynbee should give up the internet for Christmas - then we could all get some rest.

I once down loaded an entire book and read it in two hours in order to win.

It seems to me you are throwing up chaff to deflect from the fact that the basis for the whole approach has been demolished.

Your suggestion that Left Foot Forward have asked you to apologise is a Straw Man argument [pun intended]. All that was asked for was that you acknowledge that this 'research' doesn't stand up.

And this has nothing to do with #kerryout as you have claimed. The people involved are angered by climate change denialism - not some annoying sideshow on Twitter. But I cannot help commenting that complaints about polemic from our direction ring a little hollow given the recent tenacity and outright aggression of many conservatives online.

I remember being incredibly disturbed by the number of goofs on Wikipedia and the IMDb when I first started surfing the web. It really startled me - all this suspect info, and yet the likes of the BBC were happily quoting the sites and linking to them.

Now I know that the internet is so often wrong factually, there's no point in getting rattled about it.

And as for the modern BBC, sadly, ditto.
