A MAN who spends several hours a day posting pompous right-wing comments on websites is wondering how he coped before the internet.
Roy Hobbs spends a ludicrous amount of time online goading ‘Remoaners’ and claiming he is not allowed to talk about immigration.
Retired engineer Hobbs said: “I can’t remember what I did before the internet enabled me to drone on constantly about young people being idealistic idiots who have sex with avocados.
“I did used to share my opinions in the pub, but the internet has the advantage of people not being able to punch you or worse still smile tolerantly and say ’that’s interesting’.
“These days I post everywhere from the Spectator to the enemy website Guardian, where I get very tribal and aggressive in a way I would never dare to in real life.
“I’ve developed a ‘hard-bitten Tory realist’ persona, as if I’m Ken Clarke or Winston Churchill and not just a guy who worked in a fridge door factory.
“Without the internet I’d have to share my opinions by handing out leaflets on the street, and I think the police are a bit touchy about some of my views on race these days.”
