My newspaper delivery guy did an extraordinary thing – he delivered the New Sunday Times early yesterday at 8.00 am (usually he takes his time on Sundays and drops it off around noon), knowing full well I would be keen to read the headline story.

So Sunday morning was well spent, laughing in bed and playing a game of “spot the logical fallacies“.

I certainly didn’t have the patience, but Malik Imtiaz did and wrote a blow-by-blow rebuttal of the NST interview with the de facto Ministry of Law, Nazri Aziz (See here and here).

And Nik Nazmi, a King’s College law graduate was similarly tickled, and defined this endemic phenomenon, “Nazrism“, as:-

“An idiotic response to a political issue, as a result of lack of proper thinking on the matter and the need to justify the government’s actions.”
