Here’s a small suggestion

I have written three blogs this morning.

And published none.

I might take a little thinking time.

Try thinking before writing? Or is that, candidly, just another neoliberal imposition?

  1. How long before he writes to inform the world of his daily stool movements and their quality, as many of his more fawning supporters would no doubt wish.

    Yes. Assuming Tim hasn’t taken this out of context (although I’m not sure what context could justify those wise words), Mr. Murphy misunderstands what most adult/mature/aware people are looking for from their blogger.

    His personal foibles/insecurities/internal ramblings are of no interest.

    This sort of stuff is the stuff of an adolescent who hasn’t yet realised that he is not the centre of the universe.

    Enough to put you off for life.

    But then again, maybe the content is even worse in his case!

  3. BraveFart: stool movements

    Yup. After Brexit – it’s the best time!

    RM:I might take a little thinking time.

    That seems weirdly plausable but what then happens to the spontaneity? The creative flair? The verbal incontinence and the hammering?

    I vote publish first and think later (possibly) and keep the tradition.

    You’re just kidding me, no? Take that away: what’s left?

  5. @BF ‘How long before he writes to inform the world of his daily stool movements?’

    That’s what he’s been doing for the last however may years?

  6. “How long before he writes to inform the world of his daily stool movements and their quality”

    I thought that was what Twitter was for(*)? Blogging doesn’t have the same immediacy.

    (*) Stephen Fry certainly used it like that, until his luvvie meltdown.

  7. In fairness this would be a radical departure – if he does think about it, almost 95% plus of his output would be unpublished. He may even learn some basics about economics, finance, science, gepolitics, history, philosophy etc, etc.

    The photo of the pig flying past my window is going on to Social media right now…..

  8. Must have been a real whiz when he was in practice.

    “I have advised three clients this morning and I am now going to think.”

  9. Considering the shit he does publish, the stuff he rejects must be absolutely mental.
