Telegraph Editor: Charles Moore Is a Tw*t

Sketchwriter Andrew Gimson may have lost his age discrimination case against the Telegraph after they traded him in for younger model Michael Deacon, but there was still one gem at the tribunal that brought a smile to Guido’s face. After former editor Charles Moore penned a piece for the Speccie backing Gimson, the Telegraph‘s current top dog Tony Gallagher emailed a colleague: “Gimson’s moving or fired. Moore is a tw*t“. Classy Gallagher…

    wasn’t the “Moore is a twat” comment in Private Eye?
    Not that it really matters as no-one with any self-respect would want to be well-regarded by a je*k like Gallagher anyway.

    I am not a twat. In fact I am a global statesman and expert on economics and education.

    I think I recollect that line “Moore is a twat” from one of Shakesp**ars plays.

      They talkt of his having a Cardinall’s hat;
      They’d send him as soon an old maid’s twat

      You can say Shakespeare here now BTW.

      He was much more fond of the word cuпt

      Hamlet: Lady, shall I lie in your lap?
      Ophelia: No, my lord.
      Hamlet: I mean, my head upon your lap?
      Ophelia: Ay, my lord.
      Hamlet: Do you think I meant country matters?

    who cares! The Barcl@y Bros have destroyed the Telegraph anyway.

    He’s right about Charles Moore though.

      I believe he’s another Old Etonian twat. We seem to be overrun with them at the moment. Can’t we have a national cull of them (I’d include ex Westminster pupils just to make sure we don’t miss out in Clegg)

      Typified by the big girls’ blouses that work there, The Telegraph seems to have carved itself a niche in the Hello/OK market of heavyweight journalism.
      I wouldn’t be at all surprised if their menstrual cycles had all synchronised.

        As with all the dead treers, The Telegraph thinks it’s salvation lies in the internet and the adv*rt*sing rev*nue to be gained therefrom and justifies keeping so many, otherwise unemployable, “journalists” on it’s books by having them type reams of inane drivel, posting it on their website, and then have same scribblers comment on their own articles all day to give the impression to the adv*rtis*rs that the site has huge traffic. It’s a self-perpetuating illusion of meaningful employment. The difference here, is that Guido and his sidecar(s) don’t claim to be anything other than a couple of half-sozzled amateurs.
        Tell me I’m wrong.

    What the fuck is Media Guido when it's at home says:

    You seem to have divided your readership of nine into two camps by having this article in two places, Guido.
    Apart from annette, that is, who, I hear, doesn’t split easily.

    Engineer says:

    Judging the two on the basis of the papers they produced while occupying the Editor’s office, Moore is a far more thoughtful and considered journalist than Gallagher. Not quite in Max Hastings’ league, though.

    The purging of older journalists from the Telegraph is a big mistake. You can’t gain experience (of life, of journalism, of anything) without being around for a good few years.

    Private Eye will be pleased to know you read their magazine Guido, albeit a month after it is published!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
