Re: Strewth. Is there no end to the madness?...
Or is it a mental health problem for her and supporters which rejects the evidence and views of experienced experts mastering in the subject matter?
It's not just her and supporters: There is a view by a large proportion of the population that experts are to be derided, that Gary down the pub knows more about a subject than someone who has spent his whole life working with or studying it. They also deride politicians and the media for being untrustworthy, unless of course they agree with what that politician or reporter is saying.
We have taken confirmation bias to the extreme, and the internet has aided the creation of almost perfect echo chambers to encourage this (even though it should do the opposite, with all that information available at our fingertips).
