Rees got rubbished in Friday’s media for his philosophical musings about the nature of love and traffic. The Herald’s front page described him as “bizarre” and “embarrassing”. What do the critics want? Should he go into a huddle with his spin doctors before making any statement and end up sounding more machine than man?

Long live spontaneity, eccentricity, individuality and unpredictability. As Milton said (and Rees will say): “Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.”

David Dale argues that we should celebrate and enjoy Nathan Rees’s eccentricity.
