No Sympathy For The "Devil"

Chris Mounsey, of "The Devil's Kitchen" fame, gets torn apart by Andrew Neil of the BBC. My primary reaction, unlike Nick M and his friends over at Counting Cats In Zanzibar (from whence I got the link to the video), is one of contempt toward Mounsey. He really ought to have known that the BBC would be out to get him, and therefore he should have never allowed himself to be bullied by Neil. There could scarcely have been a better opportunity to breathe a bit of fire into the defence of individual freedom, but Mousey - for all his Nick Mish "swear-blogging" on his former "Devil's Kitchen" blog - simply didn't have it in him and it is too late to do anything about it now. What a wasted opportunity.
