In response to Niall McCrae: Leftism and trivia are ruining the Telegraph, Woman at home wrote:
The Saturday Telegraph used to have a number of interesting opinion columns, but now you have the likes of Bryony Gordon and Michael Deacon. Charles Moore’s column, the saving grace, was absent at the weekend. I glanced at the cover of the magazine and wondered why the caption said, “Meet Marion: the chilling face of France’s far right”. Why chilling? It’s a bit strong – they usually save that sort of adjective for mass murderers.
To cap it all, Graham Norton’s agony aunt column majored on sympathy for a poor snowflake who had discovered her friend had voted Leave – poor thing! After so much self-indulgent metropolitan drivel, his closing line was “I feel very sad that voters over the age of 65 made a decision that primarily affects their grandchildren, people such as you with their whole lives ahead of them, but it has happened. Life goes on and it is up to all of us to make the best of the choices we have left”.
I have chosen… not to buy the paper again.
