Marina the potty-mouthed toff


I am beginning to despair about The Conservative Woman’s journalism and use of English. It is just not up to the gold standard set by the Guardian.

Take last Thursday’s piece by Marina Hyde. According to Wikipedia she was born Marina Elizabeth Catherine Dudley-Williams, the daughter of Sir Alastair Edgcumbe James Dudley-Williams, 2nd Baronet, and went to Downe House independent boarding school (current fees £37,530 a year) before reading English at Christ Church Oxford. Such a background and education are the privilege of the very few, and with this in mind I have culled a few choice phrases from her piece (TCW’s asterisks).

Farage spokespr*ck

international arses

nebbishy sh*tposter


narcissistic sh*t

glorified bogseat warmer

Getting down with the foul-mouth massive, eh? Or is it up there with the super-cool elite?
