Update: when it’s best to keep your mouth shut

Charlie Brooker has put together an excellent response to Jan Moir’s column in The Guardian today…

To think the Daily Mail should be on the wrong end of an avalanche of complaints to the Press Complaints Commission, after the nonsense they stirred up for Russell Brand & Jonathan Ross last year.

Bet those two are following this story with interest…

Unfortunately the PCC can’t uphold our complaints, because apparently they don’t deal with third party complaints. The only complaint they would uphold is from Stephen Gately’s family.

Talking of which, if the column itself wasn’t bad enough with its blatant homophobia, then what about the timing? Stephen Gately hasn’t even been buried yet. His funeral is at midday today.

Disgusting really. Jan Moir: hang your head in shame.

  1. I went on a hitch hiking and camping tour of the South of France with Jan Moir’s sister. Deranged also!
