This is the third start of this particular post. The first was a proper grump about Twitter in general, about right-on, holier than thou, virtue-signalling Twitter in particular. Second was an enquiry as to what makes a stabbing “terrorism”rather than “knife-crime.”

The evidence suggests I’m grumpier than usual.
