Confused what the thread title (Jethro Tull consider rewrite?) has to do with the article linked to. Am I missing something obvious?

The article itself seems like the kind of tedious by the book culture wars propogating thinkpiece that by this point couldve been written by an AI app and that (hopefully!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) will soon seem more dated and obsolete and painfully 'of it's time' than the 80s pop culture that the author covers on her main blog.

The article's author writes a blog taking the piss out of old Rainbow comics. She started going off on one after the election about how Joe Biden was trying to steal the election, which was odd as pretty much everything else on her feed had been lighthearted nostalgia-based stuff. Some thought she'd been hacked, but it turned out she's just a fruitcake who threw a wobbler and flounced off when people told her she was being nutty. And now the Kremlin's picked her up as a victim of cancel culture, because she made wild, unfounded claims about electoral fraud that others told her were horseshit.

Oh not Jenny Morrill :( I follow her on Twitter (@theworldOfcrap) and had noticed she had been following a few accounts like Spiked Online and Defund The BBC but I did wonder if she was just rubbernecking, like me following @realDonaldTrump. Shame.

Thanks for the context. It’s shite if she’s received genuine unhinged threats just for expressing her daft ideas. She should be able to talk a load of old crap unmolested without being pushed towards the dark side of writing culture wars perpetuating blogs. A crappy situation all round.

A few people have replied to her tweets mentioning her supposed support of Tommy Robinson- any truth in that? Has she deleted tweets about him? Very sad if true. I used to love her writing about nostalgia for crap food and shite TV and I enjoyed her novel (Crap Holiday). Really quite sad about this.

Someone did tweet screen-grabs of alleged DMs she sent claiming that Tommy is misunderstood and not who the media claim him to be. Bad form in sharing them, ludicrous form if she believes it.

That's a real shame as I loved Jenny's blog (which doesn't mention politics). Her Russia Today article just comes across as a lazy rant, I mean this:

This has really surprised me, and the sudden pivot to that news source seems like the quickest heel turn I've seen. I've never followed her on social media, though. Her novel is one of the funniest things I've read in my life and I was looking forward to the sequel. Oh well, another one for the 'driven insane by the internet' pile. It's a big pile.

Thread title makes me imagine Bungle defecting to Russia after one too many quips by Geoffrey, knocking over the Lomonosov china cup Putin offers him and getting lost on the Moscow Metro.

Read a load of stuff she's written about Rainbow just recently. It was great stuff and she'd obviously put in the hours researching it. She also has a YouTube channel with loads of well selected short, really funny Rainbow clips.
Sad to hear she's gone off the deep end, another one that has been turned mad by the Internet i guess...
Anyway a good excuse to post this gif again

I follow her on Twitter and hadn't seen any of that.
Looking at her follow list, it suddenly goes from lots of mutual follows to almost entirely dodgy right wing accounts I have blocked.

Twitter radicalisation is a horrible thing.

(The rot seems to set in with an Andrew Doyle follow)

Her article is ironically even more useless and shite than the useless and shite she's saying is useless and shite.

But not WOKE.

Her blog was very funny so it's interesting to see how rubbish her Russia Today articles are, she's no good at being funny about politics as well as having rubbish opinions. I guess Rainbow and 80s crap UK toys aren't very big in Russia though.

I'm a bit confused as to why Russia Today want her to write for them.

Potentially 9000 views to each of the articles she does for them. Bringing in an audience otherwise unlikely to be clicking on links to Putin’s friendly propaganda website.

Nasty bit of slut-shaming in there, and a "Karen" joke. Oh dear. Sad to see this when her blog is well-written and her novel is genuinely hilarious.

She's following Defund The BBC on Twitter and appears to have gone a bit [banned member] over the license fee of late.

Strange that she's chosen an article on "burping sheep" as an example of something that isn't newsworthy. This is actually pretty interesting and relates to sustainable farming and climate change. No chance of these sheep getting Scrapie either:

Also a pet hate of mine is seeing a magazine article, celebrity gossip article etc on a news site and seeing btl comments like "THIS ISN'T NEWS!". Nope, it isn't news, it's in the magazine section or the gossip column of the website. If you were reading a physical copy of the paper it'd be in a different section or supplement and you would have realised this.

Why do people find this so difficult to comprehend? Should they perhaps have a different computer monitor or phone screen for each section to help them understand?

Oh come on. She was always crap at writing.

All that "Zippy tells George to fuck off" stuff was tedious predictable shite in the 1990s, hawked about by awful stand-up comedians and those terrible Viz-wannabe comics. Much of her writing is like when a reviewer in a second division computer games magazine tries to be amusing. "We're all a bit crap, here, aren't we?" It's Duncan Thickett for c--ts.

What makes me laugh is that the annual cost of her Bungle-having-a-spliff Patreon top tier is just £10 short of the UK TV license, and here she is moaning about some trivial stories she found on the BBC website. I know self-awareness is not a top priority for Donald Trump supporters...

I’m not sure charging for a PDF of a Rainbow comic is strictly legal either. Unless of course she’s giving physical second hand copies.

Christ, has she set up an Onlyfans as well?
