    Alex the Poorer says:

    an ugly stare from an ugly hypocrite with an ugly persoality

    Well it’s so rare for her rank hypocrisy
    to be mentioned on the BBC.

      about as often as the austerity riots in Spa1n they have been experienceing

        Ace reporter says:

        Yes, I noticed their absence too, although Sky had 20 seconds worth of coverage yesterday and today. Things must be looking up, or it is a slow news day. No coverage though of the muzzies rampaging around in Paris last week.

          BBC - Labour Says, Labour Says says:

          No mention of Madrid or Paris as it would hurt our UK Labour Comrades.
          We had to bring up the FAR RIGHT Le Pen in France as we would seem ignorant and biased if we did not.
          You will notice we have A FAR RIGHT government in Kiev, Ukraine; but not in Turkey, Thailand, Venezuela, Argentina, Russia, South Africa, and Bongo Bongo Land.

    Google Earth says:

    You can tell she’s a leftie because she can’t take a joke!

    But I suspect her outrage is because her luxurious villa – with private driveway and pool – is actually situated in Umbria.

    Either that or she was outclassed by Janan Ganesh’s barnet.

      You little people just don’t understand!

      You seem to think that socialists want a state which takes as much of your money as it can get away with and then doles some of it back to you as it wishes in order to enslave you. What we’re actually doing is freeing you from the tiresome business of making your own decisions in the nature and direction of your life and bringing PROPER order to society!

      Trust socialism with these things and you can be free to think only about good things such as choosing the right B&B in Skegness for your annual week away from your honest and worthy minimum-wage toils.

      Oops, must dash… there’s the last call for Alitalia.

      Ciao tutti!

    Toynbee on this, Abbott on This Week- not good.

    How many a levels did she get as she went to oxford?


    • 23
      Wiki says:

      “After attending Badminton School, a girls’ independent school in Bristol, followed by the Holland Park School, a state comprehensive school in London (she had failed the Eleven plus examination), she won a scholarship to read history at St Anne’s College, Oxford, despite gaining only one A-level.”


      • 42
        Shnapps Apps says:

        This is quite amazing. What did she do for the scholarship FFS? Have never heard of anyone getting in to Oxbridge with one A level, except Charles.

          Of course she could have gone the Toby young (well actually Toby Daniel Morsoom Young as he appears not keen on letting his full name out of the bag) the well known Tory pin up boy by getting to oxford by by being given a place by “accident” and nothing to do with his dad Michael Young, Baron Young of Dartington.

          At least she isn’t now sliming her way into politics like people’s champion (well his kind anyway) toby.

          low resolution fox says:

          Having a famous leftie writing dad probably helped.


          • Anonymous says:

            Leftie/rightie all the same self serving parasites although it takes a special breed to guzzle at the trough and then turn on its master.

            Its always easier to preach self reliance and making your own way without any state assistance when mummy and daddy are loaded and powerful.


      • 49
        Mind the *%^&%g *privilege* gap says:

        Kindly do not confuse ‘won’ with ‘being given because of who she is/was’.

        .. and even then she did not complete the course – thereby depriving a much better suited student of the opportunity to go there.


      • 50
        was it something I said? says:

        It gets even better. Having taken a place that a much better qualified student whose daddy wasn’t able to put the ‘fix’ in she then got bored with it after a year and left.

        Right now there is some retired 60-something who was rejected by Oxford to make way for Toynbee. Somebody whose daddy wasn’t able to get him/her a place at Oxford or a job at a national newspaper. Somebody who could really have used that opportunity instead of playing at being a poor little rich girl for her entire life.

    I’m another hypocrite who would rather be in Tuscany.

      Tuscany? No chance you old knacker.

      Purgatory is much more suited to your abilities. Of which you have none.

      “We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world.”

    Ha ha! says:

    Fucking mong faced c-unt, serves her right. Well done to Brillo.

    She made a similar face one time on Question Time when Dimbleby mentioned her “final solution” article.


  9. 11
    Ha ha! says:

    Notice the c-unt was happy to laugh about Grant Shapps at the start but suddenly changed when the joke was about her.


  10. 12
    Brillo Watch says:

    I rather liked the “and Janan Ganesh…but we couldn’t find anything to rhyme with his name”… Brillo innuendo being that he is a brown person with a very strange and foreign sounding name that nothing in the English dictionary could possibly rhyme his name line.


  11. 13
    PhD says:

    Her face hahagaga

    Serves her right hypocritical cow

    Carney Easing says:

    Good old Polly. A lovely lady who really genuinely wants to help poor downtrodden people, just not actually have to meet or brush up against them.


  13. 15
    Jussa one cornetto, geeev eet to me says:

    Did not somebody tell us that her villa is not in Tuscany, but a completely different area there?

    Principle is the same though; hypocritical thick head that she is.

    Sid Cleverbollocks says:

    Tuscany’s always been a raw nerve with her ever since this public skull-cracking from Littlejohn.


    • 22
      Ha ha! says:

      The interesting thing about that exchange is that she made a personal remark first and when he retaliated in kind, she said “let’s not get into it this way.” The barefaced cheek is astonishing! She was fine to dish it out but when she got some back, she cried victim! What an utter utter fucking c-unt.

        Sid Cleverbollocks says:

        ‘You started it, pet!’ (Littlejohn)

        lojolondon says:

        The other interesting thing about this exchange is that he is so right, she is so wrong, and the leftard audience is so clearly Liebour – once again. Which is why no-one watches QT anymore.


        • 61
          Joe Public says:

          +1 million+
          Unfortunately there are too many people listening and viewing QT; and willing to believe that the views expressed are general consensus instead of being from a tiny very vocal minority being trumpeted by a corrupt public financed disinformation service.
          Stalin and Goebbels taught them this. Just keep giving out the message and people will start believing it.


          • Dangerous Brian says:

            I still watch QT, it just proves how right I am about the absolout number of idiots they have on the “show”.
            It now appears that the only criteria for a seat on the panel, unless you are the token Tory in the woodpile, is having mumped a few hundred grand off the BBC in appearance fees.
            (It also helps if you are a foaming at the mouth son or daughter of immigrants climate change left wing lunatic zealot).

    I she’d taken profits by selling the Tuscan villa.


    • 28
      Peter Bone says:

      Probably sold to a relative to avoid death tax duties.

      She is knocking on a bit now.

      Golders Green gondalier says:

      That inveterate one time visitor calling himself Tuscan Tony would know, but he has not been by here lately. Obviously couldn’t stand the humour….

    He he – they don’t like it up ‘em, do they….

    I'm voting Tory to continue to concrete over the countryside says:

    They are all hypocritical twats who appear so far out of touch from reality that it’s frightening !!!

    Shnapps Apps says:

    Poor old Pol, never learnt to take it despite the Comp educayshun, the sort who would bully collectively but tell teacher the second someone snapped her elastic on her pants. Bitch.

    Call Me Dave - Runs a mile for charity says:

    Dave had this comment to make afterwards “I can tell you one thing duckie never run a mile in your sling backs”

    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    Why don’t the Prime Mentalist, Tuscany Toynbee and Angela Eagle have a state off for Charity? To be fair it’s the first thing I think they are any good at.


    • 55
      Labour, thy name is hypocrisy says:

      That Eagle is another one – she’ll talk all over someone but as soon as someone else tries to interrupt her she’ll start crying about her human rights and feminism and how it’s so unfair and she’s only a poor little woman, etc, etc.


  23. 59
    Shnapps Apps says:

    Unfortunate rubberneck when clearly objecting to the Tuscany bit, OK so it’s Umbria. Little difference to a liebour voting fodder piece in some inner shithole in London or Brum, surrounded by ethnicity foreign tongues and bunny claimants.


  24. 71
    Will says:

    Polly is just a poverty tourist. Whilst blaming the government about austerity she has never had a hard life coming from a privilege background. I once on the guardian website make a comment about if she wanted to be really poor she should move to the stockwell park estate and try to live thier and tackle the gangs that blight people’s lives. She might find that reality is a bit hard to take


  25. 73
    Stare Analyst says:

    I see this as a two part stare. The first part is one of confusion. It reflects her utter bewilderment that she, a right thinking lefty, has been made the subject of a jape on the lefty BBC. The initial confusion subsides, and then the second part – the death stare – emerges.

    Didn’t David Milliband get into Oxford with 3 Bs and a D (PPE aat Corpus Christi) on a scheme for students from deprived state schools?

    Whippersnapper2 says:

    “I’d rather be in Tuscany” what can you say to that other than F***-O** then as soon as possible.


  28. 99
    Whippersnapper2 says:

    This ghastly bag was on the BBC2 Daily Politic today for the millionth time.
    The BBC has to GO. As to Tonybee – fuck -off fatso.


  29. 102

    Is that Brillo still blethering on?


  30. 104
    MacGuffin says:

    Even on the Guardian comment threads, Toynbee’s braindead scrawlings are becoming the object of derision.

    nick says:

    Polly Toynbee- complete fruiutcake and loon. Definitely a me first person. Of course a Labour supporter, who knows nothing at all, talks crap and “looks” like a Labourite- you know – butter wont melt…..– go to Tuscany please and stay there-old bat!!
