So, contributions welcome from you over the next few days. I am collecting for a compendium of outstandingly hypocritical quotes; examples of the art-form known as total lack of self-awareness. (This may be a dangerous move on my part!!!)
Just to start you off: I give you Stan Collymore who freely accuses Luis Suarez ofÂ being a cheating sportsman, using the colloquial term ‘diving’ in a tweet – and then runs screaming to the police because several Suarez supporters respond by accusing him of being a ‘tree-swinging, banana-munching, bamboo-bashing n*****’ all of which sounds suspiciously like colloquial language for implying that, like the rest of us, he has African ancestry.
Which is the worst insult? (Yes, I am aware that only reference to sexual orientation or race is against the law – but why?)
Then we haveÂ Susan Gaszczak, one of Lord Rennard’s alleged victims, who, after being a part of a one year campaign to publicise Lord Rennard’s alleged and unproven behaviour responds to the news that he is thinking of publicising the alleged victim’s alleged behaviour (how many times do I have to put ‘alleged’?) says:âI think making the information public is disgusting, it is bully-boy tactics.â
Yo! This is better or worse than bully-woman tactics?
