Just in case you
thought a woman wearing a peach dress with no sleeves on telly was even too
pointless a news story for the Daily Fail these days, The Evening Standard has come
to spit on your shoes, give you a kick, and remind you the patriarchy is
still in full swing.
foolishly turning to the news section and expecting, er, news, I was confronted with a
pointless sexist ‘oi oi darling’ style comment piece about BBC Breakfast’s new
co-host Susanna Reid. Here are some choice quotes:
morning Reid turned up in a peachy-coloured, short, near-sleeveless,
a bit of a wriggler and you’re aware of her bare arms all the
fact is that Reid, 41, mother of three, is not just naturally
nods sagely when the news is bad…pouts and raises her eyebrows
null…and grins hugely when things get cute...”
extrapolate your own case of dancing trousers to the entirety of London, David
Sexton. Maybe some of us were watching her and thinking about THE NEWS.
Note to David
Sexton: I am posting you a dictionary so you can look the fuck up what ‘news’
journalist and defender of the truth Sexton takes up 211 words of his 288 word article
having a right LOL at Reid. The real story, the fact that the Beeb has ballsed up monumentally by moving to Salford because its staff and guests are all commuting from
London takes up 50 words.
Quick BBC, ship
her the fuck off to Babestation before she can cause a sexual revolution with
her wriggling, perkiness and SHORT SLEEVES.
