(not satire – it’s the Daily Telegraph!)

I am livid.

How on earth are satirists supposed to compete when Daily Telegraph feature writers are coming up with gems like this:

Emma Watson hits a high note with gender equality speech – and her wardrobe choices

As a piece of hard-hitting satire the article is hilarious.

The only problem is that it’s supposed to be serious.

Here are a few extracts:

The new UN Women Goodwill Ambassador made waves with her speech on gender equality in New York – and her sophisticated wardrobe.

You’ve been called up to address the secretary -general of the United Nations and a host of ‘distinguished guests’ with your one-of-a-kind mission to stop gender inequality. So what on earth do you wear?

The 24-year-old made clear her stance on being a feminist  – in a dress choice that was as eloquent and sophisticated as her argument.

I swear to you this is NOT a parody.

Well done the Telegraph’s Deputy Fashion Editor Olivia Bergen – you’re a satirical genius.

And you’ve just put hundreds of political humourists out of a job.
