It’s easy to attack the person and not the idea. I see the right doing it all the time, but I am certain the left is not exempt. And Laura Kuenssberg has suffered. You may not like her. You may not like her opinion. You may not like the BBC. And you can say all three. That’s fair. But as for personal attacks, they’re way out of bounds.
I am not saying I always get everything right: far from it. But when people accuse me (usually but not always from the right) of censoring this blog what they’re actually saying is I keep those who abuse off it. Damned right I do. And I have every intention of continuing to do so.
Keeping the comments which show what an idiot I am off my blog is exactly the same as a BBC reporter needing a bodyguard at a political party conference.
Candidly, it is.
