I'd never even heard of Lawrence Fox a week ago and I've heard of him every single day since, as he realised he could make notoriety and a cult audience by getting on the anti-woke grift.

Or, looking at it another way, he was asked wot he reckoned about some things, said wot he reckoned, and in doing so became daily clickbait for the sort of 'news' outlets eager to stoke division and outrage on the basis that someone who was once in Foyle's War has said things that most normal people regard as bleeding obvious.

Imagine a prominent ESS JAY DOUBLE-U figure saying she dumped her boyfriend becauee he enioyed an advert with an anti-feminist message. She'd be mocked to fuck.

This is so common it's virtually de rigueur: https://www.whatsyourprice.com/blog/top-breakup-reasons-of-2016/

Well it's a bit of an old hornet's nest, but the word seems to be misapplied quite a bit, sometimes 'weaponised' for political purposes, leading to confusion, resentment and anger on all sides, which is rotten.

White privilege is a difficult concept for England because surely a well-mannered well-spoken Punjabi Sikh would be more welcome in the average English home than a surly white Russian who can hardly speak the language? I don't have any data on this, alas.

Yeah we definitely needed another thread to whine about people we disagree with on fucking Twitter.

the bad song and the 'edgy' tweet are funny culture war relics, worth riffing on. don't worry, this thread will slide down the board within a day or so. sorry that this has been hard on you, will try to be more considerate next time

Good good. I'll just wait for thread three of Graham Linehan's Twitter diary, then Andrew Doyle's new Titania McGrath book, before feasting into an exciting new discussion on fucking Jarvis Dupont.

1. The Titania McGrath book is an actual honest-to-god 'satirical comedy book' and therefore worth a bit of discussion in Comedy Chat. Especially in a forum dedicated to the work of a great English political satirist.

2. You are aware that there are other threads right? If you're not interested in these, then... you don't have to read them or participate in them.

Yeah we definitely needed another thread shitted up by a fucking back-seat moderator.

You could instead spend the energy starting the sort of thread you want to see.

search 'Ricky Gervais Laurence Fox' on twitter if you want to experience brain death. the two guys who broke the dam of woke, according to many. along with the front page coverage this is getting in the papers, this is one of the emptiest and most manufactured 'culture war' moments of the Brexit era

To be fair if he's in a position of authority solving crimes I think it's only right there's some oversight about his personal opinions.

cunt has an album of anti-woke Mumford shit
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0NrIEt8rrw

They have put something in the water
They seek a cure for the conversation
They stole a march on your indecision

And the first to fall is laughter
Just to quell the unoffended
They seek to murder your opinion

And the light has been turned down on the age of reason
Replaced by blinding fires that burn wild across the region
For the wrong to rule
The good must just stand idly by


Why d'you always say what's on your mind?
Because we want to! Because we want to!
