Comment dross

I see that the Telegraph has made the same mistake as the Guardian in allowing people to post comments under assumed names. Here, for example, is ‘Lickyalips’ responding to an opinion piece about Gordon Brown and a petition on the Downing Street website:

Cameron should have responded by telling the deep-fried McMars Bar that people are not interested in the phony Downing Street petitions website after the government ignored 1.8 million signatures against the road-pricing scheme, which is going ahead regardless.

That would have put the sporran-faced gobshite in his place.

As the man said, if you set up a cockpit, people will fight.
