"I" did some research.
How well known is it that only around 3% of the UK population is Black British? (13% of US population is Black). Piers Morgan here reports only one-fifth of his targets for criticism are Black (about 10% Black women; 10% Black men) as disproving any targeting/ disproportionately

I was once in a cab and the driver asked if I was the James Doleman who wrote about Rangers court cases. I replied "yes" And that was it.

As a court reporter, you have a duty to report on the important facts… Like, WAS he being a “fuckwit”? 😂

If you're the journalist currently covering the Rebekah Vardy libel hearing who is noisily eating food while reading your article back to yourself, your microphone is still on and a high court judge is looking confused.

Just popped into a local "hang all NHS staff,' rally and the organiser said, “are you James Melville from Twitter? I love your feed. What you are doing is amazing. Keep going.” This sort of thing is happening a lot now. It’s both discombobulating and heartening in equal measure.

"On 4 August 2021, I retweeted an anecdote about a butcher in Fife, which I have no reason to believe are true and am not aware of any evidence to suggest are true. I apologise for this and I have paid for sausages."

i recently learned (to my dismay) that female trees are purposely not placed in urban areas. this is bc capitalism doesnt want female trees to bear free fruits. you can also thank capitalism for pollen season due to too many male trees producing pollen w no females to fertilize
