I think Malcolm's assessment shows a level of empathy and willingness to understand that is missing from political discourse, and is in many ways symptomatic of the rise of the Winegumses.
Blame the internet, the online disinhibition effect, whatever you like. But political discussions used to involve recognising the opposing point of view and finding consensus, usually in the middle ground. They still do, in many fora, away from he limelight. However, there are many who have, as Alan Bleasdale put it, only read one book, and believe that that book provided all the answers. While these types have always existed, the internet gives them an opportunity. Keep parroting the message. Shout the opposition down. If challenged, LOL, because it's all a big game anyway and if you get the other players to give up, you default win.
Message aside, there's no real difference between him and the college green cunts.
