Biased BBC contributor Hippiepooter sent me this most excellent link to a Delingpole article on his encounter with Richard Bacon.
“Bacon, remember, has recently been fighting a public battle against the various internet trolls(especially on Twitter) who have made his life hell. Had he bothered to read Watermelons and got as far as chapter ten – They Don’t Like It Up ‘Em – he would have seen catalogued in some detail the cases of vile bullying experienced by climate sceptics like myself, Johnny Ball and David Bellamy deliberately orchestrated by green activists, and stoked up by BBC presenters like Richard Bacon (and Sir Paul Nurse) when they use inflammatory words like “denier”. (What, so questioning the validity of AGW theory is roughly equivalent to denying that six million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust? Nope. I don’t think so).”
