The Truth about Goats
While Manchester attempts to recover from a terrorist atrocity, many on social media helpfully took the time to explain how pleased they were to be proven ‘right’. Fortunately we have had humanitarians like @David_Leavitt able to reduce their grief down to a punchline.
Said one eye witness: ‘The mainstream media have been dreadful – ‘brave emergency services’, ‘acts of heroism’, blah blah blah. No, what I really needed at this time of crisis was Katie Hopkins channelling Heinrich Himmler.’
Remarked one dispassionate tweeter: ‘In the aftermath, the people of Manchester have wasted their time in acts of solidarity and love. Thank goodness in the face of tragedy someone has the courage to use hashtag #IToldYouSo.’
One family spoke of their gratitude: ‘If our devastating grief can help just one, lonely, twitter user unleash 140 characters of self-serving bile then our sacrifice was not in vain’.
