Ah, I love the blogosphere, even if it doesn’t always love me.
In a recent post I commented on an Australian newspaper columnist’s piece about the arrest in Singapore of ABC journalist Peter Lloyd on serious drug charges.
The columnist came across my post, which criticised him for dog whistling to the tune of Australian racism about Asia, Asians and non-Western cultural values.
As can happen, the columnist responded on his blog site, which is hosted at the Daily Telegraph in Sydney.
Now the hounds have been loosed on my scent. Which, incidentally, neatly makes my point about dog whistling.
But that’s OK, I’ve dealt with dribblejaws before. Their drivel is worse than their bite.
