    I’m truly flattered again Patrick, you seem to be having a good trawl around my earlier blog, I switched it back on again for you so hope all of the links work.

    I’m reflecting on my own post now and can maybe make a rational observation. Celebrities who “preach” at us on topics such as climate change or BLM or gender etc usually have zero science behind their OPINIONS. I excuse them. Journalists in the msm however just cannot be excused. They present the opinions of attention seekers as facts, the concept of investigative journalism being a foreign concept to them. I have yet to read a balanced piece from any hack who has spent time with scientists from both sides of the climate change issue, or who investigated the accounts and background to the BLM movement organisers, or who writes something definitive about biology, mind, and gender. I have no problem with absolute freedom of speech, I have been educated and practiced as a scientist and as a psychologist, debate and feedback are essential to our growth as a species, but I have a big problem with all forms of no platforming etc.
