Stay Classy, Guardian

Congratulations to the Guardian for the most unpleasant headline of the day. John Crace, the man who writes their unfunny parliamentary sketches, had this to say about the Maggie Thatcher auction yesterday in a piece laced with bitterness:

“The old dear would have loved it, with her friends and enemies at last united. For there was one thing on which everyone could agree: she was worth a great deal more dead than she had been alive.”

Stay classy. 

Of course, this is the same John Crace who two years ago wrote an emotional article about how important it is to be sensitive to those who had been bereaved. In capital letters, Crace wrote: “FIND WORDS TO HELP”. Maybe he should take his own advice…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
