Media Bitch Fight: Stephen Fry v Mandrake

After Mandrake’s Tim Walker suggested Stephen Fry doesn’t write his own tweets, TV’s favourite moaner lost the plot:

“Some weasel of a Telegraph journo wants me to give up Twitter. It’s hardly surprising I annoy some people. I annoy myself. But new depths were plunged today by some shiny faced, arse-witted creep called Tim Walker who published a nasty little piece in the Telegraph today implying that I don’t write or compose my own tweets. As you will probably know, I don’t read newspapers, but a friend sent me the link without thinking, so I couldn’t but read it.

@ThatTimWalker, this sneering and disgusting insult even to the reeking heap of disgraced ordure that is the British press, was told all this very clearly and patiently by my distressed PA who, knowing the British print media, was all too aware that this noxious boll-weevil would go ahead and print insinuating drivel whatever she said. Indeed, apprised of the truth, he still managed to extrude a semi-literate gossipy turd about seeing me at a meeting with Andy Serkis and witnessing me taking out my phone and tweeting.”

Touch a nerve?

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
