Fat tit leaves Cameron rag

Your humble Devil used to subscribe to The Spectator but let said subscription lapse when "that fucking awful little tit" Matthew d'Ancona turned it into an unquestioning Tory rag, the tagline of which could have been "the magazine that sucks Cameron's cock until the cum runs out".

Quite apart from that, d'Ancona was a piss-poor substitute for Boris, mainly because Boris had interesting friends who used to write rather good articles for The Speccie whereas d'Ancona obviously had boring, Social Democrat friends who couldn't write for toffee. As a result, The Spectator became a very tedious New Tory wankfest without even the virtue of interesting writing to leaven the obnoxiousness of the views contained within it.

Now it seems that Matthew d'Ancona—or someone higher up—has realised all of this, and has decided to replace the fat-faced twat with Fraser Nelson who, generally speaking, is an astute political commenter (most of the time).

Perhaps I shall start picking The Spectator up again...

Mine would have lapsed too for the same reason but I was too lazy to bale out properly, a bit like forgetting to cancel one's gym membership. Rod Liddle and the occasional appearance of Matthew Parris sustained me. Not sure about this fellow Nelson. He appears to be well connected and have his finger on the pulse, but he's a bit too pro-Cameron (Guido says not) for my taste. Would have preferred the return of Peter Oborne.

Like the Devil I allowed my subscription to lapse soon after d'Ancona took over. I might take another look now that a semi-decent bloke will be running things.

You could see what was going to happen even before MdA was appointed: you just needed to try wading through his pretentious and unreadable drivel in the Sunday Torygraph every week.
