I'm stealing that, thanks. :)
I actually shouted GOOD at the screen when I read this.
Either way, there's a pretty comprehensive takedown of it here: http://t.co/wVT9iyjX
Well not a great deal going on. Nothing to report and normally I would wait until something happened before I mithered you but someone has just made me aware of a headline they came across on this here internet. Now 99 times out of 100 I wouldn't bother with such nonsense but I feel outraged, so for the record...
There is a headline that implies that I am of the opinion that the years spent under the rule of that soon to be dead granny, Maggie Thatcher, was good for the soul. I've read the story and I must say it's very misleading; any great working class art, fashion, youth culture etc came to be IN SPITE of that woman and her warped right wing views and NOT BECAUSE of them. Also for the record, on the day that she dies we will party like it's 1989. Just so you know.
This rather misses the point though. I didn't for one minute look at the article and think "Noel liked Thatcher". One of the reasons I found this piece particularly repugnant was that it represented the crossing of two of my least favourite things: The Mail and Noel Gallagher. The Mail for crowing and using a massively misleading headline to suggest that they had claimed another one as Their Own, and Noel Gallagher for... pretty much everything else in the piece apart from that bit, i.e. the usual musical and social conservatism (small "c").
I guess it doesn't fit with their Noel Gallagher Is God narrative...
