Moonbat madness
Any possible remaining respect I had for George 'Moonbat' Monbiot as an intelligent being just evaporated, on reading his shrill and hopelessly wrong-headed tirade in today's Guardian about second home owners. I can't be bothered to go to the effort of sensibly refuting the points he makes. I just wish the man would do some research and try to actually understand the issues before spewing forth a thousand words on the subject.

It is supremely irritating to find someone who cares about the right issues (affordable housing, rural community life) yet manages to go about suggesting 'solutions' that are completely lunatic: divisive, childish and playing right into the hands of those on the opposite bench. Someone kick the soapbox from under his feet, please.

Me too, because i actually agree with Monbiot...

The truth hurts for some. I suppose its like he says "tell someone something they know and they will thank you for it, tell the something then dont know and they will hate you for it."
