Edwin Poots elected DUP leader to succeed Arlene Foster
Northern Ireland agriculture minister and young Earth creationist says someone else will be first minister
It’s fun, isn’t it? That he’s a young Earth creationist is plastered everywhere. Other views equally stupid never do get mentioned in this same manner. Who points at Hindus and laughs because they believe in reincarnation? Actually, the Dalai Lama gets applauded for the belief – this being the basis of his claim to be Dalai anything.
Or, to be more fashionably present, a quick rustle with a knife changes one’s sex.
And those who believe that socialism is perfectible? Or in the Labour Theory of Value? That last being clearly wrong simply because humans don’t behave that way. Could be true in some other universe that the value of something is that of the labour that goes into its production. Could even be true of some other species. But as humans don’t act as if it is it’s not a useful theory when detailing the behaviour of humans.
Still put that aside. What we now need to do is celebrate the name Poots and its elevation into headlinedom. It is just such a lovely name that there must be decent headlines that can be written.
Over to you….
