The Graun have let go their top Marsha from Spaced lookalike. Goodbye, Kitten.

Honestly her most significantly endearing quality since i love marsha like a warm and ashy smelling hug. Comforting.

I love Marsha too. 

Just in case anyone feels bad for her

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.

Dear god.  Just read a bit of that.  What an utter cunt.

Wow.

Come on, she obviously reeks of Chanel. Plus there are small birds making a nest in her hair.

I think three fat inches of cleavage was the least sisterly bit, if I'm honest.  I always saw it as builder's bum, viewed through the back of an office chair.  Not awfully attractive.

The Iain Duncan Smiths have taken the piss out of blue ticks rushing to the defence.

Anything involving Rick James is alright with me.

Quote from: Cretinous TERF columnist who's relevance has long since faded
Get on a bus and you will hear many a robust exchange about "ethnicity" which polite and political conversation is afraid of.

I think Julie Burchill might even balk at that kind of disingenuous 'Hey Guardian liberals, I'm reporting from the frontline of the class and culture wars so you don't have to get your hands dirty, and not at all basing my bollocks opinions on a couple of videos shared on Twitter'.

I'm not saying she hasn't been on a bus in the last, oooh, 25 years. I just don't think the shuttles that take you between Heathrow terminals really count as rubbing shoulders with the hoi polloi on public transport.

I'd suggest, much though it displeases me to do so, that Julie Burchill is capable of making a not-completely-stupid point once in a while (although invariably unable to avoid decorating with a wide area of hateful nonsense, to the best of my recollection[1]).
 1. Which I suppose has the benefit of making me question why I agree with whatever fragment I do agree with.[1]
 1. At least I think that's a benefit. I suppose I'm not really very pleased that all of radical feminism is being so thoroughly undermined at the moment by its most vocal British proponents obsession with transwomen.

I'm seeing a few things saying this is voluntary redundancy as part of the Guardian's cost cutting exercise, and not a 'sacked for speaking TRUTH' as is being implied.

Don't worry, I don't think it is being undermined.  Who, what, could ever do that? 

A load of nasty yap's being going on, mostly from some predictable old farts, meanwhile, radical feminism makes a cup of tea and continues.

it's this initial TERF lovebombing where they really over-exaggerate the person's achievement

"lo! Su'zanne Moore! cast out from the guardian's hallowed halls. every word she typed was like divine nectar, such drops of wisdom we beheld in awe: this titaness of the column, a maestro, shunned by blunted trolls with tiny balls."

I've loathed Primal Scream for many a year. Now I feel all clever.

I was just thinking this morning that this is generational, this Britpop centrism. They all kind of got rich and well known around the same time, all wedded to a similar political philosophy and moment in Britain's history.

I was kind of hoping Gillespie had swerved this based on him getting derided for being a silly sixth former on Newsweek for being vaguely leftwing then sitting ashen-faced as the pricks danced around him during the outro.

Not that I think his political opinions would be particularly worth listening to.

Of that generation, maybe Jarvis 'Cunts Are Still Running the World' Cocker is the only notable exception. I recall him saying in an interview that he supported Corbyn, and his deep loathing of all things Tory is a matter of record. As for Primal Scream, they have always been a bunch of clueless fucking idiots.

Hard to imagine the Reid brothers liking the tories isn't it? Perhaps they do I've no idea.

Agree about Cocker.  He's a lovely old cocker.

There's a bit in the 'Magpie Eyes...' Creation book from 1986 or so, where Smash Hits are asking top pop stars about abolishing the royal family. The Reid brothers umm and ahh in non-committal fashion, while Chris Lowe suggests publicly executing them, leaving Alan McGee fuming that his protegees had been out-punked by one of the Pet Shop Boys.
