RACE & ENGLAND: WHY I LOVE GARY YOUNGE-GUARDIAN CRITIC.

8 07 2008

“Given its huge majority, Labour could have made the case against racism and xenophobia. But rather than stand on principle, it has preferred to pander. Having ducked the major challenges, it has left it to the likes of Rev Roger Gayler to literally face the consequences of the failure head on.”

Oh-I LOVE this. Nothing rallies ol’England up then a talk about race and their feelings about it!!

Doth protest to much dear sir!!

BUT also we have Gary Younge-Guardian writer of ‘controversial topics’. He’s black and it seems whatever topic he talks about from Obama to pink daffodils-the response on the blog is MENTAL!

LOVE IT!

22 06 2008

But I’m really into her column this Sunday, if not for her opinions on the media/social/public dehumanizing of Michelle Obama.

MEDIA BITES: Germain Greer HEARTS Posh Spice xoxo

19 05 2008

“Victoria Beckham may have seemed the least talented of the Spice Girls but her real talent lay elsewhere. She is an artist in the same genre as Damien Hirst: marketing. In an era of bare bellies, painted legs, visible underwear, junk jewellery and grisly computer generated prints, she is a lone champion of elegance for working girls.”

    POSHOOO!!

THE GUARDIAN COMMENTS; Charlie Brooker agrees that Boris Johnson CAN’T become mayor of London!

14 04 2008

“Fast-forward to now. On May 1 London chooses its mayor, and I’ve got a horrible feeling it might pick Boris Johnson for similar reasons. Johnson – or to give him his full name, Boris LOL!!!! what a legernd!! Johnson!!! – is a TV character loved by millions for his cheeky, bumbling persona. Unlike the cartoon MP, he’s magnetically prone to scandal, but this somehow only makes him more adorable each time. Tee hee! Boris has had an affair! Arf! Now he’s offended the whole of Liverpool! Crumbs! He used the word “picaninnies”! Yuk yuk! He’s been caught on tape agreeing to give the address of a reporter to a friend who wants him beaten up! Ho ho! Look at his funny blond hair! HA HA BORIS LOL!!!! WHAT A LEGERND!!!!!!
