Unfortunately, such timing issues still persist but, nevertheless, it is always worth sending a few shots across her bows—if only to keep dear Pollyanna on her toes.
And in a neat example of such time-limited but timely reminders, this post will emphasise one of those little tics which—whilst not being exclusive to Polly—does illustrate just why she is one of the most abysmal writers in the MSM (as previously chronicled, at length, here at The Kitchen).
Yes, it's Polly's quite brilliant ability to contradict herself within the very same article that we are going to highlight today.
So, in today's worthless piece of crap, darling Polly is talking about a National Care Service—which sounds like it will be a fucking disaster—and the contradiction lies in Polly's justification for another massive fucking nationwide government-driven QUANGO. So, we have this...
One benefit of devolution is the real-life social experiments it offers as each nation adopts different social policies. But the chance to learn from one another is often ignored at Westminster.
Wow! Polly thinks that we should experiment on people—just like little lab rats. But then this hardly comes as a surprise—she is a socialist, after all, and believes that she is superior to the plebs who exist only to serve her need for social expiation.
But that is incidental—note, please, that she has said that experimentation between regions is a good thing because other regions can learn from one another—although, presumably, she would not think that any verdict should be passed on Saint Obama's health bill as a result of the recent electoral upset in Massachusetts.
Regardless, this idiotic nitwit now weighs in with a fantastically contradictory statement.
Nothing about social care is simple – not least because each local authority offers different levels of care at different rates and interprets the official criteria arbitrarily: that's why we need a National Care Service.
Erm... Right, so experimentation between devolved regions is a good thing because we can learn valuable lessons...
... but we need a National Care Service to ensure that regions cannot, in fact, experiment.
Well done, Polly, you fucking muppet.
UPDATE: it seems that Timmy has made the same point, albeit somewhat more succinctly.
UPDATE 2: the wife, by the way, maintains that Polly cannot be serious and that her columns are, in fact, a colossal practical joke—each one a more elaborate spoof than the next. Sometimes, I wonder if she might be right...
