(not satire – it’s UK today)

I’m getting sick of this.

Yet another overpaid hack relentlessly moaning after getting strong reaction from a badly-researched, lazy and harmful article he’s written for a national newspaper.

This time I’m talking about that self-appointed oracle of wisdom – Philip Hensher  – who has written a long whine in the Independent bleating on and on and bloody on about how horrid it is to be called names by readers who are directly suffering from the relentless spin and propaganda against them which so casually drips off the gold-plated pens of people like him.

You can read his whinge article here, if you can stay awake long enough to read it to the end:

Disagree with me, sure. But don’t wish me dead

Now remind me. What’s the definition of a coward and a bully?

Well, let’s see, how about this?

Someone who attacks others but then complains when they themselves are attacked back?

That’ll do very nicely.

Don’t cry after I said all that, Philip, because I can see after reading your article that you’re the sensitive type who doesn’t like people saying horrid things about you.

I feel for you, Philip. I really do. I can see you’re not cut out for this line of work.

So probably best if you give up being a journalist and go and get yourself a job stacking shelves in Tesco, along with all the other unemployed, disabled and sick people who are being forced to work there on slave wages.

Or are you afraid if you do that you’ll be made to look like a lazy scrounger by overpaid, out-of-touch newspaper hacks too?
