Love Island star and Thatcherite girl boss Molly-Mae Hague has, correctly, stuck to her guns following mass online lefty criticism about her comments on hard work and aspiration. A statement put out by her team this afternoon declares “if you want something enough you can work hard to achieve it is how she keeps determined”:
“Molly did a podcast interview in December about her own rise to success. If you listen to the full conversation and interview Molly was asked about how the nature of her potential grows and how she believes in herself. This part of the interview was discussing time efficiency relating to success.
Molly refers to a quote which says “We all have the same 24 hours in a day as Beyonce”. She was discussing her own experience and how she can resonate with this specific quote.
Her opinion on if you want something enough you can work hard to achieve it is how she keeps determined with her own work to achieve more in her own life. Molly is not commenting on anyone else’s life or personal situation she can only speak of her own experience.”
Molly-Mae shows precisely how to deal with online moaning: don’t back down. She’s not for turning…
Try explaining this headline to somebody 24 hours ago. On LBC this morning small business minister Paul Scully was asked by Nick Ferrari about the Molly Mae libertarianism controversy that Guido reported on yesterday afternoon. In classic ministerial question spinning, Scully managed to turn the issue into espousing the need for ‘levelling up’, while also agreeing with the bikini-clad star that “an aspirational approach to life is no bad thing”. Odds on Molly making an appearance at this year Tory Party conference?
Twitter-obsessed co-conspirators may have noticed the name “Molly-Mae Hague” trending today, as the former Love Island winner gets slammed by left-wing whingers for her comments on aspiration and hard work. Speaking on a podcast the Pretty Little Things creative director espoused:
“I just think you’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.”
“When I’ve spoken in the past I’ve been slammed a little bit, with people saying, ‘It’s easy for you to say that, you’ve not grown up in poverty, you’ve not grown up with major money struggles. So for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.”
Naturally Molle Mae’s belief that individuals are responsible for their own lot in life, and that hard work can improve one’s life, have outraged the left, branding her “gross” and “tone deaf” and even “a little mini-Thatcher girl boss”:
Guido thinks 2022 could actually be the year of the “Thatcher Girl Boss” …
It was only a matter of time before new Love Islander Priya Gopaldas let her fellow contestants know about her celebrity crush. Not only does she think Boris is a “cuddly bear”, she apparently dreams about him as well:
“It’s not just his hair, but he’s like, super powerful…but then, he’s Prime Minister, he’s career-driven, ambitious, but then on the inside: total sweetheart. Bojo! Super cute! … I’ve had dreams about his hair, you know…”
She then went on to fantasise about Boris’s head on Chris Hemsworth’s body…
The political world once again collides with Love Island this week, as new girl Priya Gopaldas admits she has a bit of a thing for the Prime Minister. Asked before arriving on the island who her celebrity crush is, Gopaldas said:
“This is a very strange answer but Boris Johnson. I have a soft spot for him. It’s the confidence, but he is a total sweetheart on the inside and that is what I like in a boy. He’s the Prime Minister, very driven, but then on the inside he’s a cuddly bear. I also love his blonde hair, that does it for me!”
Twitter was predictably incensed. No word yet on what Carrie, who reportedly calls him “Bozzy Bear”, thinks…
Department for Transport civil servant and former beauty queen, 25-year-old Sharon Gaffka, has been booted off Love Island in a teary and dramatic show opener.
Sharon who had previously worked as an EU Exit Senior Policy Advisor said:
“I’m still on the look for love and the hunt for that Mr someone special who can handle my fire and make me a happy woman”.
Guido thought that Sharon would have had plenty of experience leaving the single market…
Sharon will be returning from Mallorca, which was recently placed on the amber list. However, as of today, if she is double jabbed, she will not be required to isolate. Perhaps Sharon will have more luck finding love when she returns to SW1…
