@worstall @dslesperance @morethanataxman @nickshaxson @UKuncut How odd that you turned up when I said that…..
So, there\’s been a bit of teasing going on. Why is it that the Murphmeister, Nick Shaxson and the rest won\’t respond to a piece I did over at Forbes concerning The Guardian\’s particularly stupid piece on corporate taxation.
They don\’t have to respond, of course, free speech includes the right to silence. But @dslesperance has been goading a little.
So then I turn up in one of the responses to Ritchie\’s response to lesperance. Which is what leads to Ritchie\’s response above. The clear allegation being that lesperance and I are in cahoots, that I only turn up because I\’ve been tipped off and can thus press my case.
And indeed it\’s true, I was tipped off. Because Ritchie put @worstall in his response, meaning that Twitter then sends me his tweet. That being how the system works you see.

@dslesperance @morethanataxman @nickshaxson @worstall @UKuncut I do not engage with those who use abuse as an argument.
