It's madness, I tell 'ee!

Many of us feel that—whilst science may be able to achieve almost anything, given the fullness of time—there are just some things that these Frankenstein loonies should never attempt.
If someone were to produce a mash-up of [Maureen] Dowd and Polly Toynbee, leavened with a dollop of George Monbiot we might have the world's most compellingly-appalling columnist.

For the love of all that's unholy, just say, "no! For fuck's sake, no!"

One to frighten the childer with.

To make "it" even more shudderingly awful you could always add a dollop of genial unpopular Denis McShane and a leavening of ungenial unpopular McBroon (with apologies to Peter Simple).

Don't forget the "wit" of Charlie Brooker.

I think this is a great idea, it would save time if there's only one fuckwitted column to read/fisk every week.

But to make it really awful, you have to bung in elements of Daily Express, which I happened to read yesterday, my god, that newspaper is full of shit. All hail the hallowed greenbelt! There is a link between cannabis and mental illness! Reducing time limit for abortions will save lives! Old age pensions should be as generous as in other European countries! Welfare payments should be time-limited!

Well to be fair it will save the lives of the bairns involved, non?

"All hail the hallowed greenbelt!"

Sounds like a pretty good tack to take, tbh...

"Welfare payments should be time-limited!"

Can't disagree with that one either...

It won't be remarkable. They all share the same single idiot gene.

Thres alot to be said for genetic engineering.
Take Polly Toynbee plus a piece of fly plus a bit of cabbage and what do you have --?

the fucking Smith Institute .

I'm voting Labour at the next election.
