I just love this sentence

“The discussion at the Sydney Writers Festival is an extraordinary example of group-think, with opponents demonised, prejudices reinforced, counter arguments totally ignored and platitudes treated as profundities.”  Andrew Bolt – Monday, July 18

    I’m sure Bolt is right about this, but isn’t his column just a fairly reactionary example of the same? He’s hardly a shining example of how to debate effectively and honestly.

    For once, YM I have to totally agree with you. Bolt is a totally dishonest reactionary of the worst kind.
    However, to see him cited with approval here should not surprise you.

    “andy bolt!?”
    ain’t he the fella
    whose mum forgot to
    the occipital attachment
    to screw his nut
    upon the spinal cord

    & like dalec i’m with y.m.
    on the bolt without a nut!

    I take you point Youngmarxist. Although I think Bolt is far more inclined to debate his opponents than visa verse

    Dalec, how would you characterize the discussion at the Sydney Writers Festival?
