scroll down past the Jordan bit to the Irish bit. although i'm sure the Jordan bit is cretinous too.
When did she start writing for the Independent anyway? Has she got any newspapers left to properly piss off the readers of beyond mere love-to-hate-her?
that The Independent would publish this shit. where's the bumbler when you need him
Basically the British version of white trash - working (or un-working) class, associated with loutish behaviour and general social breakdown. Signified by tracksuits, flashy jewellery, nasty dogs, and modded cars. Some people go on about how hating them is acceptable discrimination.
think that explosion in the use of the ‘chav’ label, and all the websites and so on, was largely down to snobbish idiots looking for a way to sneer at the lower classes.
It might have started out as a label for anti-social lower class people, but pretty quickly it became clear that it didn’t matter whether they were anti-social or not – it was open season on all lower class people.
I will say no more.
one more strike and you're out.
She has spotted that Jordan is not only a celeb but also a country, this is quite clever.
Im not quite sure what she will make of whales/wales this may or may not make an association (Im not sure if her criteria depend on how the word sounds or how it is spelt)
I also enjoy her logic "gay man doesnt understand the motivations in hetero sexual relations - therefore Katie Price is OK?"
I love that sort of logic, like whereby if you just juxtaposition two things then the first becomes the proof of the second, she is a master of it
PS Julie Birchill is employed by newspapers because it is a popular pasttime....for people to read the paper and then get outraged about how awful the Julie Birchil column content is......shes not a loony, she's a shrewd operator who knows how to press our indignancy buttons
...has a prince albert?
I fact I nearly ended up in a fight with some guy who had been drafted in to play for my rugby team at the weekend because he kept shouting "Dirty cheating Micks" all the way through the Ireland All Blacks game
"...and its historical opposition to divorce, abortion, homosexuality, feminism and everything else that makes life worth living"
Yep, life just isn't worth living without divorce and abortion.
just look at the state of her and stop giving her page the click throughs that it doesnt deserve
then you need some help.
and as with so many things, betrays her lack of knowledge/understanding – although it wasn't a great idea, the condolences were sent BECAUSE Ireland was neutral.
It had no industry, a tiny army, and was in financial ruin through De Valera's economic policies. So what would it have offered other than a soft back door into Britain?
Further more, what more could it feasibily offer other than logisitical support - oh which it did anyway
She doesn't have a clue and she revels in it because her aim is just to cause anger. She's like the ultimate internet troll let loose on the real world. She upsets me greatly, much as I wish I could ignore her.
who has somehow managed to make the leap from music hack to general commentator. Past witterings have revealed that she thought George Orwell was a conservative and that Cleopatra was black. I don't know anyone who takes her seriously.
also it handed over downed allied pilots who washed up on our shores, hanging onto the nazi ones, and theres firetrucks sent to belfast when it was bombed. there wasnt exactly a whole lot more ireland could have done, even if they had wanted to, considering they were part of ww1 under the uk, had just gained independence a few years prior, and wanted to show off their fancy schmancy new sovereignty
she goes beyond to rubbish journalism into the realms of an irl troll
...deserves to be shot at dawn. It's absolutely crazy that people still honk on about it, considering there was absolutely NOTHING to honk at in the first place.
One of life's mysteries.
...every paragraph drips with hyperbolic innaccuracy and ill-thought.
The thing with Burchill normally is that, as much as I can disagree with her, she at least has a point SOMEwhere in the article. This doesn't. A confused, rambling mess which is probably akin to trolling isn't it?
calling him out as the shitcunt he is, but at the same time a massive and loyal readership, does anyone on the planet think "Ooh good, a Julie Burchill column" ?
they think " ooh good a Julie Burchill column, now I can get really angry AND laugh at her ridiculousness"
what would be worse out of the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 and Rwandan Genocide (formerly Nick Griffin)? Tough call, perhaps JB could help us decide.
You can tell that the presenter is being nice (because that's his schtick), but inside going OH SHUT UP YOU SMARMY MOTHERFUCKERS
it's more like being cornered by a drunken woman with a stream of consciousness rant "Katie Price is not a chav, and the country Jordan, isn't it horrible? and Stephen Fry! What a cunt, and what about those damn Irish! oh and another thing, Bono is a fucking creep!.............................."
