Cristina Odone, writing on Telegraph.co.uk, faced a commenter backlash when she wrote an article labelling Lib Dem MP Dr Evan Harris, “Dr Death”.
Along with many perturbed commenters, Evan Harris challenged Odone’s factual evidence.
Odone’s next step? To write a comment piece claiming she was “spooked” by the reaction, arguing “there’s no room in the Lib-Labs’ intolerant culture for discussion”.
Many commenters, however, give a disclaimer that they are not Liberal Democrat.
We recommend reading both pieces and sets of comments in full to judge the affair for yourself.
