The sweet smell of consistency
Stage 1: Sunny Hundal writes a post which says that making unscientific allegations that Gordon Brown suffers from a specific mental illness is the lowest possible form of politics practised by right-wingers.
Stage 2: Sunny Hundal writes a post which unscientifically accuses a right-wing blogger of having a specific mental illness.
And, as I pointed out, although I do not suffer from Tourettes, one of my contributors does. And he helpfully left a comment pointing this out.
Dear Mr. Hundal,
I came across this post via ‘The Devil’s Kitchen’. I am the contributor to that site to whom Chris has referred as suffering from severe Tourette Syndrome.
It is disappointing to see your casual, lazy reference to what is an extremely debilitating and embarrassing condition on a post the topic of which has absolutely nothing to do with TS. Such references do nothing but continue to spread the lamentable misconceptions about TS which persist in the public mind.
Sunny has, of course, utterly failed to acknowledge or apologise for the comment. I don't really give a crap—he can call me what he likes, since I happily call him a cunt (and more) although I consider that to be no more than accuracy—but it's good to see his hypocrisy spelt out for all to see.
UPDATE: sinking to my level (and how much does that please me?), Sunny points out in the comments that he has addressed the Tourette's point. Nice of him.
Obviously, I can't be bothered to read what he's written as it would probably just annoy me and, as Rumbold points out, this spat has run its course.
UPDATE 2: Or possibly not.
This is just a start. There's more coming.
Hmmm, I wonder what that means. I shall assume that Sunny is going to attempt to ruin me by taking this into the real world, a la Shot By Both Sides...*
* For those that don't know, Shot By Both Sides was John Band's former blog which had to be taken offline after people objected to something that he wrote and decided to target the company that he worked for.
