Not Amused

Once again are seeing an appalling reaction to an election result which certain people did not like.

The sense of entitlement. The children throwing toys out the pram. The willingness to lie. The fake news. The sheet illiberal approach to private matters (which are no doubt untrue, but if true a liberal should respect the privacy of).

This is really horrible behaviour.

Attacking Morgan Lewis is jumping the shark. They are a thoroughly respectable firm. Having a Moscow office does not make you evil. This has become utterly pathetic and above all – it will force me to support Trump. I never wanted to do that, but this pathetic behaviour really must be challenged.
