As opposed to Mark Steel, who is only a bit of a dick (SWP?), but can be amusing on occasion.
"In 1993, Steele was convicted of the shooting of a teenage girl, who had been hit by a shot from a hand-gun fired by Steele during an argument outside the Redskins Pub, Washington, Tyne and Wear. Steele, who was working as a bouncer at the pub, claimed that he was concerned about his safety and brandished the weapon out of "bravado". In court, Steele admitted to unlawful wounding, possession of a firearm with an intent to endanger life and illegal possession of ammunition. Steele was sentenced to eight years' imprisonment. The bullet entered the victim's skull and she was left with serious disabilities."

A bit of a dick is an understatement.
If you re-read my post, which you quoted, you will see that it was Mark Steel I referred to as a 'bit of a dick'.

Unfortunately not.

In one of the other threads (Corona virus and politics) I linked to the NMC hearing which removed Shemirani from our nursing register, which contains a lot of detail of the ******* nonsense she has spouted: TM would have been very, very busy indeed. I note also that at the time she was removed she was working as an "independent aesthetic nurse", whatever the **** one of those is, which suggests that she was finding it hard to be employed as a regular nurse, 'cos there will have been folk like me or my sister on the interview panel, if not as the appointing officer, who will have had no truck with a loon like this anywhere near our patients.

Steele...Oh FFS! Being from the North East, he crops up all over our local press (who are utter pish BTW) spouting his vile nonsense. He is all too real.

No sweat.

I would however, upgrade Steele to a total, full blown, complete and utter dick. My original description may have seemed a tad kind to the lump.
