Monckton Responds To Peter Hadfield

Well Sort of…

Monckton didn’t respond directly to the videos Potholer54 (Peter Hadfield) made documenting and rebutting incorrect or dubious claims made by him.

No, he responded to a commenter who gave a simplified listing of the errors Potholer54 addressed:

This is a response by Christopher Monckton to the comment on the Nurse anti-science thread yesterday by anonymous commenter “The other Brian” who in typical troll style,tries to distract away from the post and point being made with noise.- Anthony

So instead of actually dealing with the excellent videos Potholer produced, he goes after a few lines of text. I think you can guess who made another excellent set of videos documenting how Monckton yet again contradicts himself:

Monckton has responded to my catelogue of his errors, on the website
It includes an extraordinary reversal of position on most of them, including an outright denial of what he said (needless to say, I have video tape of him saying it.)

Monckton responds (part 1/2)

Monckton responds (part 2/2)

For my readers I would like to point out that the following statement by Anthony Watts included Potholer54 as a person who hides his identity:

That said, it is an unfortunate truth that people that haven’t the courage to use their own full names when publicly criticizing others (“The other Brian”) spend so much time trying to beat down others while not having to worry about consequences.

He changed the text after I pointed out that he has a video on his channel documenting who he is. And said the following to me:

I wasn’t aware of the other videos, I’ll remove the claim then- Anthony

Which I find odd as this video is very clearly mentioned on his YouTube page. Or is a simple checking that what you are saying is correct to much to ask for?
