Unfortunately for Moran, this makes 80% of her Times readers c**ts, as only 20% of Times readers voted for Labour in 2015. This figure pales in comparison to the 55% who voted for the Conservatives in that election.
Even worse for Moran, The Times today officially endorsed the Conservatives this morning.
Can’t wait for her defeat column on Saturday…
UPDATE: Moran has now deleted the Tweet, possibly after a stern word from the boss.
Caitlin Moran has alas failed to crowdfund the £320,000 needed to film her sitcom after it was cancelled by Channel 4. As readers will remember, Caitlin had not wanted to explain why she was asking members of the public to stump up the cash when her companies hold hundreds of thousands in assets. Despite having £248,000 in the bank, on Sunday she sent the begging bowl round again hoping to raise the rest of the money in the last 4 hours the campaign was live. Her pleas went unanswered. Will she now risk her some of own money?
Writer Caitlin Moran has got out the begging bowl, asking her fans to crowdfund the £320,000 needed to create a new episode of her sitcom. She says:
“the more people support the campaign, spread the word and fund us, the bigger the chances we have of continuing to make the show. We’ve got the scripts right here! We know what happens next! All we need is your help to get them onto the screen. But if we don’t hit that £320,000 – IT’S ALL OVER. We won’t take your pledged amount of moolah and Raised By Wolves will be dead by Christmas Eve.”
What Caitlin ain’t telling her generous benefactors is that she could surely stump up the cash herself. Moran owns a company called Casa Bevron Ltd, which has just one other director, her husband Peter Paphides. According to its latest company accounts, Casa Bevron has has £247,996 in the bank and half a million in assets.
Not to mention royalties from her New York Times bestseller. In the words of her campaign video: “I know crowdfunding, It’s like hipster begging right?” Caitlin is doing a Facebook live broadcast at 3pm where she’ll have the chance to explain why she needs your money…
Times columnist Caitlin Moran is both a #Milifan and a Russell Brand fan. She tweeted gleefully earlier about The Sun:
