Arse kicking for @kthopkins

Dave Hasney:

It would appear that @kthopkins got a new arse ripped for her opinionated views on #depression

Dear Katie,

Earlier today it came to my attention that you had tweeted your opinions about depression – the biggest mental health issue that faces this country, bar your ignorance.

Many believe that the opinions you spout are nothing more than a cry for attention much like when a dog defecates for the attention of its owner, which ironically is a form of separation anxiety.

When I read your tweets I was not surprised that you had decided to shit on the floor in the hopes of a reaction – Something you have done many times and will probably continue to do until you fade away into obscurity.

Cate Moore has already written a piece on Purdah and what it entails, so I shall not bore you by repeating it.

I do, however, question the application of Purdah, and I appreciate that Cate does not necessarily agree with my views on this matter.

Having looked Purdah up, it seems to originate from the early 20th Century.

According to the House of Commons Library;

The term “purdah” is in use across central and local government to describe the period of time immediately before elections or referendums when specific restrictions on the activity of civil servants are in place. The term ‘pre-election period’ is also used.”………..”Guidance is issued to civil servants on the principles that they should observe in relation to the conduct of Government business in the pre-election period; the guidance for the pre-election period in 2015 was issued on 30 March 2015.”…………..”There is statutory guidance…
