The Trannies are Coming!
Guardian Preparing for Burchill Siege

From: Internal Communications

Date: 17 January 2013 15:31

Subject: Kings Place


We have been informed that around 4.30pm today members and supporters of the trans community will be gathering outside Kings Place in response to last Sunday’s Julie Burchill comment piece.

Security are aware and we will monitor the situation carefully. We do not believe that this will affect staff working in the office, but if you are expecting guests you might like to let them know in advance.

If you have any questions, please contact Paula Tsung (Head of Workplace Management) or Ian Carter (Workplace Manager).

Please consider the environment before printing this email.

Guardian under siege!

UPDATE: Observer deputy editor Paul Webster has picked up a megaphone and is apologising to the offended masses outside Guardian HQ:

    How do these people find so much time to protest? Do they not have fucking jobs?

    It’s just like Assault on Precinct 13

    The good one I mean, not the shit one.

    Even now the Met are reading up on their diversity guidelines on how to deal with them when nicked for public order offences.

    Seriously. is the world going mad?

  9. 9
    FrankFisher says:

    They all have full time jobs being offended – no, REALLY offended – by actual women telling them that they aren’t real women, as they have only lopped their cocks off.

    Raving Loon says:

    “trans community”

    Is there a straight community?

    Rocky Horror says:

    Give yourself over to absolute pleasure. Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh – erotic nightmares beyond any measure, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever. Can’t you just see it? Don’t dream it, be it.

    Head of work place management.
    Work place manager.

    No wonder they’re losing money. They’ve got an entire department of workplace managers with its own head!

    What in all thats holy is Workplace management and Workplace manager, is it the head cleaner and cleaner? And why should they be told?

    The General Public says:

    Evil Tory cuts have all but eliminated the job prospects for former hod-carriers who now wear floaty Laura Ashley print dresses.

  18. 18
    Sensible question says:

    Could this clearly ‘barking mad lefty publicity stunt’ also be a reflection of the phenomena hitting NI loyalists of late ?


    The point being that they are feeling culturally aggrieved because their funding is being cut ? And more to the point – the funding of their aligned NGOs ?

    It’s probably like any group that proports to represent a body of people …. gives them a bad name and no sane person would have anything to do with them.

    Puts me off wearing women’s clothes in case they think I’m someone who can’t handle free speech.

    OK, so long as you aren’t in Tesco at the time. We wouldn’t want any unfortunate confusion with the Cumberland sausage rotisserie.

    That’s the first one then.

    A tranny spotter says:

    There’s also Ladyboy Yvette nad Hattie Hateman who could also cause embarassing confusion.

  32. 32
    Shooty* says:

    So… what? 6 people turning up to protest? 8? 12?

  33. 33
    hank the cat says:

    Hell if Therese May is mistaken what about the eagle sisters and Baron Ashton

  34. 34
    Shooty* says:

    Heh. Bet the BBC reports it as “thousands”.

    JuliaM says:

    Is Nicholas Witchell available to help subdue them if they break through security? Or does he only do lesbians?

  36. 36
    hank the cat says:

    I expext a lot of the protestors will be in the Met

  37. 37
    Could be one thing, could be third gender! says:

    Is there an “I’m not quite of my sexuality at the moment but I would like support from equally confused indivduals” community? It would be very British.

  38. 38
    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    The world is going to hell in a handcart and the graudian is wittering on about some inconsequential rubbish!

    No wonder they have so few readers!!

  39. 39
    JuliaM says:

    Probably more like ‘Zulu’.

    Do the Grauniad staffers know any of the words to ‘Men Of Harlech’?

    You don’t resemble a horse do you? We don’t want our customers upset by more horse meat!

    Why do all the weirdo’s and pervs gravitate to the left, it seems to be a home for them.

    Is this the Ford Transit owners club? Good advertising for Ford.

  48. 48
    Casual Observer says:

    Now, if they wanted to make a useful political point, they should be demonstrating over why the publication was taken down from their web site.

  49. 49
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    Not a problem. The trannies just need to call the plods ‘plebs’ and they will be identified as ministers who cannot be arrested.

  50. 50
    Yvette Cooper says:

    I’ll be there along with the Eagle brothers.

  51. 51
    A tranny spotter says:

    Are you sure? I was convinced that he Eagles are brothers pretending to be sisters pretending to be trannys!

    Perhaps you have more intimate knowledge than me.

  52. 52
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    No, your suggested name is more Germanic in length. In Britain we call it Norfolk.

  53. 53

  55. 55
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    I’m afraid La Witchell always requires 48 hours notice to enable him to remove his tongue from the rear end of Princess Anne.

    Something to do with the bedwetting in bad wigs, I should think. Someone has to clean that up.

    ‘The trannies are coming’?

    I look forward to you covering any gay issues with the word ‘faggots’.

    This comments section reads like a group of confused thirteen year olds. ‘Backs against the wall’? Really?

    Airey Belvoir says:

    Anyone who has eaten cheap burgers will inevitably have eaten animal genitals, also eyelids, arseholes, ears, lips, tails, connective tissue and anything that can be scraped off the carcass and turned into slurry for processing. Horsemeat is the least of it.

    I’m going to organise a protest outside the daily mail for their offensive treatment of stupid people like me.

  81. 81
    La viande de cheval says:

    I was under the impression that a fair amount them actually kept their tackle. Either for greater earning potential or just out of sentimental attachment.

    Perhaps that’s the problem with the rad fems – penis envy.

  82. 82
    La viande de cheval says:

    No. Not allowed.

    In the same way there isn’t a ‘white community’ and no ‘white community leaders’.

  83. 83
    La viande de cheval says:

    Inconsequential rubbish?

    Perhaps, but the Graun posts up some crap articles and the blogs (including this one) are all creaming themselves over it.

    Much as we would wish it otherwise, the Graun is still read by the most influential opinion formers in the land.

    ‘Opinion formers’

    You mean people who presume most people agree with them because they are so fucking worthy.

    ‘Opinion formers’ my arse. The fucking thing is read by a tiny, tiny fraction of the population. There must be a dire shortage of opinions in this country.

  94. 94

    It’s laughable.

    So this blog is going for minority groups now is it? How very brave.

    How about Muslims next? Gays, Blacks, Women? Give them all a good kicking because y’know they deserve it for being, well, not like us. Because we’re just Normal, and we’re Respectable Family People, and as everyone knows, conformity is so yummy.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
