Martyn, I thought the dust had settled and we could move on with our lives. I was wrong.
Here’s you, predicting how this weekend’s Q&A show will go:
Toby Manhire from the Baby Boomer Listener will tweet something during the show that only Findlay McDonald, two bloggers at the Standard and Scott Yorke will find amusing. Not so much a circle jerk, as a square jerk.
I actually have better things to do on a Sunday morning than watch TV (like build Lego with my kids and do the chores). I could count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I’ve ever watched Q&A.
It seems clear that in your feverish imagination I am the representative of all that is wrong with the world, but that’s cool. I’m not here to tell you how you should think.
But maybe it’s time to accept, Martyn, that you have a problem. You’ve become irrelevant. Your ranting and raving was very endearing when you were younger, but aren’t broadcasters supposed to mature and develop?
And, seriously, do you really believe abusing and insulting anyone with a more nuanced opinion than your own on any particular topic makes you influential?
I suppose I should just be grateful that the best my adversary can offer is a lame masturbation metaphor. Maybe your average reader is fourteen years old and that sort of humour works on your site, but I felt kind of sad for you when I read it.
Surely you can do better than that.
