Instant karma’s gonna get you

RedHerring

If our pale blue dot were to be visited by benign aliens, have you ever wondered how we would go about explaining some our quirkier concepts, such as “karma”, for instance?

Ponder no more. Your back page ed has an example of karmic perfection that’s going to be hard to beat.

Allow us to introduce Italian politician Massimiliano Fedriga, who’s from Italy’s far-right League party and a campaigner against that county’s totally laudable mandatory vaccination laws.

Massimiliano unwittingly managed to raise the profile of his anti-compulsory vaxxing views in an exemplary fashion – by finding himself hospitalised with chickenpox.

I know we shouldn’t mock … but tell me you didn’t smile, at least a little bit, when you read this.
