Hurray For Hagrid!

  • Hurray For Hagrid!

  • When I took the offspring to see those Harry Potter movies, all those years ago, he was one of the characters we most liked. 



  • Of course, it’s actually not the imaginary Hagrid we should cheer, but the actor, Robbie Coltrane, who displayed a huge amount of Scots common-sense last week, when he spoke up in defence of JK Rowling.

  • I don’t think what she said was offensive really,” Coltrane said during an interview with the Radio Times. “I don’t know why, but there’s a whole Twitter generation of people who hang around waiting to be offended. They wouldn’t have won the war, would they?”
  • SO true.

  • .

  • Degenerates and maladjusts is what they are, but while they wouldn’t win any war in which they couldn’t get to scratch the enemy’s eyes out, they are not short of bile, which they are ever-ready to spew out on social media.

  • As Coltrane recognised when he told his interviewer that ‘he did not want to speak on the issue any further “because of all the hate mail and all that s— which I don’t need at my time of life.”
