Even more complexity. The great and the good dinner-partyistas should try to accommodate some understanding of the phenomenon that not everyone thinks the same way as they do. On the Guardian's website readers are being asked, 'Was Tony Blair's performance during the Chilcot inquiry convincing?' - this under the not entirely neutral prompt 'Blairfaced cheek?'. Nearly 40 per cent of those responding are doing so in the affirmative. Had the question been asked under a more open heading and on a different site, who knows what the proportions would have been? It's called diversity.
