Jeremy Warner is an economic journalist who works for the right wing publication – The Daily Telegraph.
The is a publication where moderate views have very little home – especially from many of its readers who often post – what I would call – aggressive comments.
In this newspaper the EU is a totally evil organisation with no redeeming features. Donald Trump is akin to a God while we have unlimited supplies of fossil fuels which do not cause Global warming.
As I’ve found to my cost – if you put arguments against the above ( and a anything else they support) You’re likely to get a barrage of abusive replies from their highly educated readership (in this case being a member of the Tufty club and having reached the bronze standard in the Cycling proficiency test)
Well today I was given a wonderful surprise by the illuminating and ruggedly honest Jeremy…he actually replied to one of my comments for the first time ever.
Gosh was I overjoyed – with me just being a simple country lad – here I was being directly addressed by a true God of economics.
I had commented on his article concerning the Corona Virus in which he effectively said that the culling of vunerable old people by the virus was economically a good thing – although he was quick to say that he was only talking in pure economic terms – meaning ‘of course’ that he didn’t mean that any old people being killed was a great thing to happen.
Kudos to you Jeremy for being so caring.
But of course I saw through his facade of care and and my comment effectively questioned if he possessed any empathy
Hell hath no fury than a right wing economist criticised – so he called me a woke.
My life is now complete
