Slamming a professor as ‘partisan’ because she isn’t Brexity enough. Now trying to scare the shit out of a law firm for having the audacity to hold the government to account. We’re in full-on banana republic territory now, aren’t we? But a very British take.

More bad news: you're not even a republic.

The Daily (NY Times' podcast) was an interesting listen today.  Focussed on how QAnon followers dealt with the situation when their promised moment - all the Democrats' paedophile-ring conspiracy crimes being exposed during the Biden inauguration - didn't happen.

I'm going to assume that it's like quite a lot of cults and went something like this:

"Instead of abandoning their beliefs when the flood and the flying saucer failed to materialise, most cult members actually consolidated their beliefs and increased their attachment to the group."

That's from the Gruniad's "It's not the end of the world when doomsday prophets get it wrong".

The short story is that it's a lot easier to add more bullshit to the original bullshit than it is for someone to admit (or face the fact) that they've been fooled by a bunch of bullshit.

This video by the Internet Historian is sort of relevant.

Am really enjoying a bunch of Internet Historian videos now. Thanks.

His No Man's Sky video was not what I was expecting at all, and probably his best work.
