Psycho-neuron-babblist…


This is brilliant (thanks to the BPS Research Digest).

Lord Falconer hit the nail on the head:

“Why are we talking about the precise detail of Gordon’s personality traits… why aren’t we talking about the substance of the issues?”

“Forget all this… sort of psycho-babble from… the Penguin guide to… And LET’S LOOK AT THE REAL ISSUES!”

“You’re a most irresponsible programme for doing all of this.”

“You don’t need a man who’s a psycho-neuron-babblist to come and say is he connecting… for goodness sake.”

Watch the clip. Very funny. All true. It’s a shame responsible academic psychologists don’t come on and say, look, this is all nonsense.
