Slightly Worrying

the latest Spectator / Intelligence2  debate

Read the report of course.

But it does worry me….i mean I work for these people sometimes, so I\’m rather invested in their being clever chaps.

So we\’ve got a debate with "Intelligence" being an important part of it, at least to judge by the title. Intelligence can mean at least two different things: facts and information, of course, and the other being the ability to think through the logical consequences of a course of action or train of thought.

Whichever meaning they intend here, umm, why did they invite Polly Toynbee?

  1. It’s an ‘Intelligence Squared’ debate, so bear in mind that when you square a negative figure like Polly’s intelligence you end up with a positive figure, so her tremendous stupidity is of great value.

    Ditto for her opponent Kelvin Mackensie.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    The cynic in me says that they did it so that all those businessmen who pay for such things can see that, despite Blair and Brown’s pro-market rhetoric, there is an alternative to the Tories and the Market and they ain’t going to like it.

    Two minutes of Polly and I think I would be begging the Conservatives to take every penny I had.
