Making the Future Female


Note the use of the royal “We” in this piece of shoddy “journalism” from the UK Guardian’s Tanya ‘Arse’ Gold. Who exactly “we” are in this context is never made clear.

She claims “we” are lapping up the government’s propaganda bollocks and there’s no anger in Britain.

She must have been on a very long holiday to the Moon if she hasn’t noticed that disabled folk, the poor, students, the unemployed, schoolkids, teachers, soldiers, the police, lecturers, rioters, Occupy, trade unions, doctors, women’s groups, charities, NGOs, nurses, supporters of Wikileaks and pensioners are up in arms at the recent crappy policies of austerity and poor-bashing by the shower of shit popularly known as the Coalition Government.

You couldn’t make it up – although Tanya managed to…

I wonder if she writes in crayon?

    Middle class journo desperate for more copy to keep her in her job. These journo’s want to see people out on the streets getting shot at, locked up and abused. Take a good hard look at the System that produced you Tanya and write a piece about that – then you’ll answer your question…

    I bought a real life paper grauniad the kind you can touch and fold up and recycle (of course) the sport and business sections a few weeks ago – hadn’t done this for years and it was my look-forward to holiday treat! Except it wasn’t. I was sooooooo disappointed at both the twaddle it was filled with – and filler being the main part of the paper – and the slack limp loose weakness of the writing (almost called it journalism then, oops!). It actually made me quite angry, as I really used to enjoy reading it – a kind of education. There was nothing in it that was news, or new. I check out their app quite often these days and especially ‘comment is free’ where you do occasionally get some challenging writing and viewpoints. But, as a whole, guardian – humph. At a loss. What a disappointment.

    • You’re a funny and perceptive person after my own heart – it is a pale shadow of its former self. But isn’t everything now? Or am I just getting old? Or both? 🙂

    lol – well, maybe both (and thanks!) – but of course daily rags don’t have the power they used to have, or more’s to the point, they don’t rake in the money they used to, so I’m guessing that the fewer people they have working for them have to do a wider variety of tasks, so there is inevitably less depth. And, as we’ve seen with the prince with no clothes ‘story’, newspapers are always going to be playing catchee uppee with bloggers and tweeters – like your good self, which is where I find my news and views these days – which may be another reason why the guardian seems so insipid in comparison – there’s a lot of truth out there right now (so keep it up!)…

    • Exactly my perspicacious pal. I started on The Sunday Times when I was 11 and progressed to the Guardian when I started work – but the quality has gone and I’m sure you’re right it’s down to financial constraints. thanks for your kind words – looking forward to chatting in person.
