Nit-Picking

Many people get perverse pleasure from the perceived wrong doing/thinking of others. They love nit-picking.

Nitpicking

The DUP loves to parade any SF faux pas. DUP councillor Gary Middleton objected to Sinn Féin councillor Colin Kelly wearing the football shirt at a confidential meeting of Derry City Council.

The football shirt wasprovocative and “should not have been worn to a Council meeting”.“Like it or not, Celtic jerseys are deemed to be provocative and people can take offence,” he said.

Sinn Féin leader in Belfast City Council, Cllr Jim McVeigh, objected when DUP Cllr Ruth Patterson put on a Linfield football scarf at a Council meeting

Bullying and nit-picking are  not  features of political philosophy. They are features of human nature.

That’s why history repeats itself – not because the circumstances are the same but because human nature is the same.
