Polly Toynbee: unspeakable, old hag

How can I be bothered to fisk a Toynbee column when the headline alone is so mind-bogglingly offensive?
New world, new rules: now Brown must dare to spend

Go fuck yourself, Polly, you stupid bitch: how dare you urge that profligate cunt to spend yet more of our hard-earned fucking money.

Besides which, Polly, there is no fucking money left: the one-eyed Scots cunt has spent it all, and more.

However, Timmy has done a reasonable and reasoned evisceration of Polly's fucking nonsense.

Me? I'm tired of this bullshit—I just hope that she dies, and soon. The poisonous old bag is long-past her sell-by date—I imagine that she smells like it too...

I fear that the question "Polly Toynbee: psuedonym, bot or troll?" is becoming something other than satire recently. The woman is getting beyond parody.

She's probably laughing to the bank. £100k+ for writing a few articles that don't have to be researched and someone else will edit for you? Sounds like a highly successful capitalist!

And soon you could spout bollocks like her too... :-)

This has cheered me up no end.

How come my use of profanity never sounds as good as this when I use it on my blog?!

Very very good. And I completely agree. Toynbee has totally lost the plot and she makes the Guardian seem ever more ridiculous and out of touch. Which, of course, is no bad thing.

Well done sir

Oh, gosh - an intelligent blog-post!

If she is so terrible, is this the best you can do?

It's more the sort of thing you'd expect from 13-year-old boys in the playground.

"If she is so terrible, is this the best you can do?"

Nope. Now, Google has this terribly clever system where you can attach labels to posts; so, if you click Polly is wrong (again), you get lots of far better invective.

It's just that I couldn't be bothered to really go for it on this occasion.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
