The obnoxious Piers Morgan is a case in point. He has been unrelenting and vitriolic in his abuse of Meghan. He says he is an advocate of free speech and criticises the snowflake culture, but flounced off GMB like a spoiled schoolgirl yesterday when someone dared criticise him and express an opposing opinion.


I've read that he was looking for an excuse to leave the programme anyway.

It's not like there's anything important going on, is it?
I mean, we don't really need to be distracted from Covid, Brexit, Qanon.....

Not belittling any claims made, but to someone like me who doesn't care about the story (and I guess there are many others), the level of publicity this is getting is coming across like a huge promotion tour.


I do care about the story to some extent, but of course it's a huge promotion tour, was there ever any doubt about that? They've just signed a deal with Netflix and need to put themselves out there to get people to watch whatever they actually come up with there, hence onto the celebrity circuit they go.

QAnon is an American far-right conspiracy theory. Is it something I should be worried about?

Well if it morphs into QInon the site could be blacklisted in the colonies.

You mean that theory that Sandi Toksvig and Stephen Fry are at the heart of the paedophile sex ring based at Pizza Express, Woking, funded by liberal-voting space lizards?
My cousin's plumber's boyfriend told me he had heard all about it in a lock-in in a pub in Much Markle just before lockdown.
All sound pretty kosher to me.

Obvious conspiracy bunkum. Pizza Express don't offer kosher pizzas, as any fule nose. Never mind the obviously fake claim that anyone voters liberal these days...

From now on, that's what I'm calling the laser I use to exercise my cat with.

Just stay where you are, you've clearly been overdoing it. There will be a knock on the door in a minute and some helpful care workers will take you off on a nice holiday somewhere warm and safe. You'll get a private room all to yourself, short daily exercise and a complementary Trump-coloured Onesie...

I watched a discussion (it wasn't on this forum was it?) where the complete insanity of the QAnon thing was raised. Then someone pointed to two Wikipedia entries:

On QAnon, it describes it as a disproven and discredited conspiracy theory alleging that a secret cabal of pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring. The other article was on Jeffrey Epstein...

QAnon is indeed a "disproven and discredited conspiracy theory alleging that a secret cabal of pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring" - that doesn't mean there isn't such a ring, though. It just means that the QAnon alleged ring is total fiction.

It also suggests that QAnon a) is well aware of said ring (maybe even a participant - "proud boys" can have several meanings) and b) is more interested in besmirching the name of whomsoever he pleases than in dismantling said ring.

Which, in my book, makes him as guilty as, if not even more than, the actual abusers.

Who do "he" and "him" refer to in the above? I thought QAnon was a theory, not a person.

There is someone who posts or posted as "Q", and he made the whole thing up. Others ran with it. As far as I read it, the original "Q" pretends to be an American government official with special clearance, but he is more likely to be a spotty teen with a talent for pulp fiction.

As posted above, this "Q" cannot actually believe what he posted because it is, in the technical Latin phrase omnis testiculi, but it was a clever way to grab attention by jumping on the fear of the age. Carl ("Nick") Beech did the same with what was basically the same conspiracy idea, and that time several police forces took it so seriously that there were arrests and reputations trashed.

The revelation of a small ring of people like Epstein is 'proof' to those who need some grounding for baseless conspiracies. You could equally say that those who invent these things are inspired by such cases.

Then again, there was that scandal in Belgium several years back which was apparently genuine - but again it does not make QAnon anything other than a pathetic delusion.
