Moore GONE

For me, the first three replies I see are Jess Phillips, the LGB Alliance (transphobic hate-group) and RCRamps, who I think is a KiwiFarms anti-trans doxer and Helen Staniland's second-biggest fan. Certainly doesn't endear me to Jess Phillips any more than I already was. Scroll a little further down and it's like characters from a Glinner drama, plus Ian Dunt.

Is the Guardian getting better again in this post-Corbyn Bidenesque world of dreary centrist neoliberalism? If it is, it's too little too late. I agree with our man AyoFrank here, who says:

Quote
I love the replies. Lefties abandoned the Guardian a while ago over the hardline anti-Corbyn stance. Now the centrist melts, the core audience, are disillusioned with the paper too because one of their heroines got the boot.
It's the end of the Guardian, who will read it now?

The first reply I saw was someone asking what right-wing rag their bigotry will be available in now, lol.

Ha, I did a cursory look for this thread to post about Moore. Has she left the Guardian because it's not transphobic enough? Or have they stopped subsidising the gin?

Ah remember the happy days when Suzanne Moore was feuding with Germaine Greer and yet both of them were utterly wrong. Although in fairness, Moore did take the piss out of Laurence Fox so she can't be entirely opposed to identity politics. Unless she now fancies a job with his new political party, of course. She, Simon Jenkins, and Hadley Freeman striding out to battle.

I was going to remark about how the Guardian had so many hate-mongering columnists, but that's the job of all newspaper columnists, isn't it?

I suspect Greer probably wasn't utterly wrong about why she had a hysterectomy at 25 and how she feels about it.

She's gonna accuse Owen Jones of bullying her or something, isn't she?

Well The Spectator are pretending to be outraged, which tells me all I need to know.

I reckon she'll be okay.

Yes, after spending her entire career complaining about being oppressed her privilege and connections will see her through this. Meanwhile all the women who needed a Corbyn government will just have to ignore her own shitty role in preventing that.

I was about to make a joke about how she'll get a gig spitting venom in The Spectator but it seems reality is already a step ahead.

the absolute meltdown from middle-of-the-road hacks over this non-entity who I don't even remember reading except for her horrible TERFy tweets is delightful.

I don't remember all the Zone 2 blue ticks shitting themselves when Dawn Foster was binned off by the Guardian for calling Tom Watson a cunny.

I think of how close some of them are to posting 'PC gone Mad' only to be confronted by the bigot they have become / always were but didn't realise.

Quite exquisite.

I know its bullying to bring up an article in a national newspaper that someone was paid very well to write, but I'm left-wing, that's how we are.
