The Polymath of ElyJune 9, 2021 Tim WorstallRagging on Ritchie12 Comments Richard Murphy is a truly remarkable man. Unencumbered by knowledge, he nevertheless schools leading experts in a dizzying array of fields. Today: genomic sequencing. pic.twitter.com/otJChGBOJd — Sam Taylor (@staylorish) June 8, 2021 previousI hate to have to be the one to say this but…..nextUmm, yes, well….. 12 thoughts on “The Polymath of Ely” aaa June 9, 2021 at 7:06 am In the comments to that tweet: He invented Corbynomics, you know. Shami Chakrabarti was given the peerage that was rightfully his though. And then Prem Sikka, who got his peerage for writing virtually fact-free sycophantic bollocks on tax for the Labour Party. Prem’s peerage must really have stung. Arthur the cat June 9, 2021 at 7:13 am I think of him more as the Polypropylene of Ely – thick, dense, goes on forever and usually full of rubbish.

If Murphy had any self-awareness he would feel humiliated, if he were capable of humiliation. stiv bators June 9, 2021 at 9:49 am Murphy has the skin of a rhino..over and over he gets exposed as a fraud but is never deterred..retreats back into his blog to offer more worthless misleading opinionated crap which is lapped up by PSR etc..thats gives him his oxygen Van_Patten June 9, 2021 at 10:07 am Stiv bators I’d say he’s thin skinned given 10,000 blocked on Twitter and any critics derided as ‘trolls’ dearieme June 9, 2021 at 10:29 am Does being a cry-baby count? https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/whats-on/family-kids-news/ely-revealed-most-baby-friendly-20770292 Stiv bators June 9, 2021 at 10:40 am Van patten – you think he’s a big blocker? Reason I say that is I’ve had a dig on Twitter plenty of times and so far unscathed.. maybe I’m going too light Van_Patten June 9, 2021 at 11:30 am Stiv That’s excellent news – is this your Twitter handle as I’ll use my ‘shadow’ account instead to look up your comments on the articles! It’s been nearly 10 years since he blocked me! jgh June 9, 2021 at 12:11 pm Doesn’t even know what the “scientific approach” is. It’s nothing to do with caution or non-caution, the scientific approach is hypothsis, test, examine, chuck away, new hypothesis. Murphy’s approach is assertion, assertion, assertion, cling to assertion.

Murphys track record indicates he’s incapable of the feat.. stiv bators June 9, 2021 at 9:58 pm van pattern – post on here some responses and i will post under my account Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
