Courtesy of Marina Hyde:
Weight: 23 stone (excellent: am thinnest person in Florida). Number of times I cleverly used the suffix "-ista": 32. Times eyed up by gays: 437 (why won't they accept I'm not interested?).

Another week, another triumph, as I stuck the boot into the BBC. I haven't enjoyed giving someone a kicking so much since that time outside the nightclub in Peterborough. I'm a man of convictions. Including one for violence.

As I said to the wife, who was cleaning the kitchen wearing that thousand yard stare again, "Well? Have I once again earned the love of ordinary British people, and destroyed the BBC?"

"I'm not sure," she said, folding a Jon Gaunt tea towel I gave her for her birthday. "Shall I pop the World Service on? They're always on top of everything."

"Quite," I said.

The whole BBC is a big old mincing queen that can't take its bloody eyes off me. It wants to do it with me - just like Russell Brand, Will Self and all the people who won't let me on television because they claim I'm somehow "really bad at it". Well, sorry, duckies, I'm not going to bend over and let you nonces - it's the same thing - cover me in lubricant and tolerance and... mmm, "lubricant".

"Richard?" said my wife. "A brown parcel from Amsterdam came this morning." "Fan mail," I said hurriedly. "I'll take it upstairs. I'll be working on my column."
And again from her...
...the annual Littlejohn audit. Behold then the results. In the past year's Sun columns, Richard has referred 42 times to gays, 16 times to lesbians, 15 to homosexuals, eight to bisexuals, twice to "homophobia" and six to being "homophobic" (note his scornful inverted commas), five times to cottaging, four to "gay sex in public toilets", three to poofs, twice to lesbianism, and once each to buggery, dykery, and poovery. This amounts to 104 references in 90-odd columns - an impressive increase on his 2003 total of 82 mentions. There is, alas, no space for us to revisit the scientific study which found obsessive homophobes more responsive to gay porn. But Richard, we're begging you: talk to someone.

Johann Hari says something like this in his review of Littlejohn's Britain:
There is, however, a core to Littlejohn's humour, to which he returns on almost every page: homosexuality. He obsessively talks about cottaging, lubricants, 69ers - every tiny detail of gay sex is smeared across the pages. He quotes long exchanges from Gaydar involving the MP Chris Bryant ("I could do with a good f***"), and says Peter Mandelson lives on "the Rue Des Jeunes Hommes" (because gays like young boys - geddit?). I think about gay sex much less than Richard Littlejohn - and I am gay.

Every problem circles back to sodomy in his mind, as he panics: "Soon we'll have gay men going door to door, like Jehovah's Witnesses, trying to convince us to convert." This isn't bigotry. It's a psychiatric disorder. Yet he claims that "the fascist left" are "smearing" him as a bigot. His technique is to make an unambiguously bigoted statement, and then say it has "nothing to do" with bigotry. For instance, he says that in Britain, under "the Blair Terror", "Entire neighbourhoods have been ethnically cleansed - and it's the English who are getting out of town." Then he says - without missing a beat - "But as I keep stressing, this is not about race." I see . . . it's "ethnic cleansing", but it's "not about race". Perhaps somebody should send Littlejohn a dictionary.

There's a book by Mark Steel ("Reasons to be Cheerful") in which he recalls people in his home town of Swanley who would be pretty easy-going, unless aspersions were cast on their sexuality ("You can call me anything you like but don't call me gay!" one character says). I've seen similar things elsewhere. IIRC there was a novel by Iain Banks in which he surmised that as old industries closed and sexual equality became more of a thing, the surefire ways to 'prove' one's sexuality were to have as many kids as possible, or to get into fights. Over one's sexuality.

the biggest popular revolt this country has ever seen
Um, little thing called the English Civil War, Dickie love. You might have heard about it. I imagine that Wat Tyler would like a word with you as well. To name just two 'popular revolts' bigger and rather more important to this country than a bunch of moaning twats who think that the French are irredeemable, they're taking our bent bananas, and we want to be able to bop a wog/poof/wog poof in the face without repercussions.

Chap I went to college with was fiercely homophobic. His favourite bands in those days of 1995/96?

Take That and Boyzone. And he knew all the dance moves.

Ladyboys all round

Not the Cuban missile crisis then? 80s nuclear paranoia about a mad leader pushing the button was not aimed at the Soviets
Paranoia about the Russians was at its height, and not just in official circles. The CND was still a powerful protest movement and the threat of nuclear annihilation permeated popular culture in music, literature, TV and cinema.

The people who laugh and call it satire - what kind of mentality finds this the slightest bit funny? How would they handle proper satire?

Publish a whiny editorial about being alright with humour, but this article crossed the line.

He may as well have just written "I don't like modern stuff".
