Guardian’s George Monbiot Apologises To Lord McAlpine

Speaking of uninformed commentators and trial by Twitter, George Monbiot has been in full grovelling mode today.

Possibly something to do with the heavy threat of legal action at the end of McAlpine’s statement. Monbiot’s now-deleted tweets included:

I looked up Lord #McAlpine on t’internet. It says the strangest things.

I can confirm that Lord #McAlpine was Conservative Party Treasurer when Mrs Thatcher was prime minister.

Historical fact of the week: Lord #McAlpine was a well-known treasurer of the Conservative Party during the Thatcher era.

What was that about evidence-based science…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
