Theresa May’s Littlejohn moment

So Theresa May repeated the 2009 myth that an immigrant was allowed to stay in the UK because they owned a cat. Worryingly, her speech had – according to Left Foot Forward – been checked by no less than David Cameron, Nick Clegg, George Osborne and Danny Alexander. Oh dear. For the record (in case you […]

Richard Littlejohn and Baha Mousa

14th July 2009, the day after an inquiry was launched into alleged abuse meted out to Iraqis held captive by the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment in Basra in September 2003, Richard Littlejohn wrote this two paragraph aside on the matter: Richard Littlejohn was reacting to allegations that prisoners had been: verbally abused, burned, stamped and urinated […]

What about the real news?

Today’s Daily Mail editorial condenses all of the basic arguments that have been trotted out by their ever-so-compliant columnists in the past week as to why we should all forget about hacking and move onto something else: ‘Never mind phone hacking, what about the real issues facing Britain?‘ [istyosty.com link]. In the real world, bleak […]

Richard Littlejohn on rape

I’ve been observing – with some disgust – the arguments about rape this week and I was wondering if the level of debate could get any worse. Then I realised that Richard Littlejohn had decided to make this topic the focus of his column this morning. Yes, Richard Littlejohn, the man who insisted that the […]

Firstly, let’s turn to the judges comments on Laws’ suspension: […]

Responsible coverage

Richard Littlejohn has the usual thoughtless throwaway segment at the end of his column today [istyosty.com link], this time he wonders why there has been so little coverage of the shootings in the Netherlands. Richard suspects that it is evidence that the world is anti-American whilst remaining unquestioning of ‘liberal’ democracies such as the Netherlands. […]

Littlejohn confused by Faggots

Today Richard Littlejohn had this little snippet on his favourite topic – gays: Faggots and peas, sir – no offence! The former Mayor of Dudley has been accused of offensive behaviour after referring to ‘faggots’ in an email. Councillor Pat Martin was simply discussing his favourite childhood food with a friend. For the uninitiated, faggots […]

Fact: Richard Littlejohn is the ultimate lazy hack

Another day, another woefully ignorant Littlejohn snippet on climate change: The latest piece of ‘climate change’ lunacy comes from an ‘expert’ who claims peat bogs pose a clear and present danger to the polar bears. Apparently, stopping people using peat would be the equivalent of taking 330,000 cars off the road. Leave aside the fact […]
