I appreciate "Grooming Gangs: Quilliam & the Myth of the 84 Percent" is prohibitively long. Not the fault of @Reg_Left_Media & I, but the report was THAT bad.

The multiverse of topics he can traverse is quite something. As his brother @BretWeinstein says: ‘He's good at evolutionary thinking in a way I'll never be good at mathematical thinking'
