He’s done it again.

Now I confess to missing this in real time. Being off Twitter is, overall, a wonderful experience, but I do sometimes miss the breaking news element of it all. Especially when it comes to Bolton Wanderers news.

So why does Nixon insist on peddling this garbage? I’m sure some would argue that the very nature of his employer makes it his go-to default standard. Maybe he likes the attention?

Who knows.

What we do know is that at times like this there will be a million twitter scaremongerers - and don’t even get me started on Facebook.

All we know right now is that right now we don’t know a single thing.

That will likely change tomorrow. Until then, I wouldn’t go giving the fud any attention.
