      1. I mean there is plenty to criticise Cook for but really Donald True probably would be pretty much the paradoxical opposite to him. Take that as a compliment or insult as you please and in the process of the latter its clearly all Rose could think of off the cuff in his state of mind these days. Clearly NOT the oracle thats for sure… though there are perhaps similarities between the original’s methodology and Rose’s form of ‘wisdom’ perhaps
