Further back in this topic I think the general consensus seemed to be that she was simply suffering from the usual stresses of working life, whilst making things sound a lot worse than they really are.

She always comes across to me as a typical whining middle class white-woman-whinger, thinking her life is so much harder than every other persons, when in reality she is a well paid, socially privileged sanctimonious twat with the same stresses as millions of other people, most of whom handle the balancing act of work, home and free time with far less bleating and praise-seeking than she does.

Alison Pearson fancies herself as Richard Littlejohn for a slightly more middle class but equally thick audience. An anecdote about a rude taxi driver and a documentary about some loonbats is the sole evidence to back up this claim

I see the Barclay Brothers are selling the Torygraph. Perhaps Richard Desmond might be interested after reading Allison Littlepearson's latest effort
Why Cameron's Brexit warnings won't wash with a nation who saw off the Luftwaffe
The Prime Minister's horror stories about an influx of illegal migrants if we leave Europe are just scare tactics - Margaret Thatcher wouldn't put up with this farce

David Cameron warns that, should we leave the EU, camps of illegal migrants will spring up at Dover because the French will no longer let UK officials make immigration checks at Calais.
Surely our Prime Minister must be dimly aware that it was the men and women of these isles who saw off the Luftwaffe? Does he really believe that, in just 70 years, we have become such world-class wusses that we are unable to keep out 7,000 Moroccans with a dog on a rope?

If he does believe that, let me politely suggest that he is in the wrong job. Defeatism is not a good look for a Prime Minister.

Consider the attitude of Australia, to take just one example of a country that knows how to protect its borders. Turn up in Oz without the correct visa and you will be returned to the point of departure, at the carrier’s cost, faster than you can say “Strewth, mate”.

Aware that the public is deeply underwhelmed by the Prime Minister’s EU renegotiation – “he asked for nothing and he got nothing” was one damning verdict – in a Corporal Jones-style panic he has launched “Project Fear”: scare the British people into staying in the EU by making us feel we will be dangerously isolated in an unsafe world.

Isn’t the opposite true? Only this week we saw how the UK is powerless to kick out the Moroccan daughter-in-law of Abu Hamza, who was jailed in 2012 for trying to smuggle a Sim card to that terrorist in Belmarsh prison. The European Court of Justice says that, “in principle”, the woman’s deportation would deprive her son, a British citizen, of the “right to a family life”.

Mr Hamza was hellbent on depriving British citizens of a family life. By blowing them up. Yet, according to EU law chiefs, our right to not get murdered by Islamist lunatics is trumped by any foreign criminal with a child born within the EU. How safe does that make you feel?

It seems that there are “exceptional circumstances” in which the Home Secretary could deport a foreign criminal with a child who is an EU citizen, and the EU court will have a little think and a double espresso and let Great Britain know when that might be. Merci beaucoup!

Can you imagine Margaret Thatcher’s reaction to this mortifying farce which puts the safety of the British people beneath the rights of a foreign criminal? I can. So, next time, the PM tries to scare us with one of his Brexit horror stories, I suggest that we respond with the words of the Lady herself. “No. No. No.”

I'm not sure what makes Pearson think Thatcher had executive vetos over the law or why as a Conservative she'd want them. In not sure Allison Pearson thinks at all.

If somone would like to correct the thread title as Allison now uses two Ls in her name. Becuase that's the kind of ponce she is.

After years of telling people to pull their socks up, and not be feckless, Pearson was made bankrupt last November, after not paying her taxes...


Shades of Liz Jones. Pearson must have had a massive salary as a columnist, and author, not to mention film deals.

Huge bump for this thread, Pearson wrote the following in early March:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/life/ ... ronavirus/

Choice excerpts:
Can the “Me” generation, who have never been denied anything in their privileged lives, be relied upon to self-isolate or will they start whingeing how “stressy” it all is when the authorities try to curtail their freedom to even a minor degree? The first person to get coronavirus in North Korea was shot. An option some of us might wish was available here when that thoughtless prat on the train coughs enthusiastically over his elderly neighbour.
Well, the coronavirus now demands that we take one for the herd. If we all do as we’re told to by the Chief Medical Officer, if we pull together, follow sensible advice and modify our behaviour; if we accept that our non-emergency operation may be cancelled because doctors and nurses are needed elsewhere, then countless lives will be saved. Even if everyone just washed their hands it would reduce the spread of infection by over half. That’s an awful lot of beloved grandparents not put in mortal danger.

It’s up to the younger and the stronger now to repay the sacrifices of the older generation with sacrifices of their own. To prove that, when it really matters, the “Me” generation can become “Us”. Too many lives are in their sanitised hands.
Allison Pearson in late-May:
To appease teaching unions and misinformed parents will little children really have to be subject to alarming, joyless social distancing measures which are Totally Unnecessary for little children?
Michael Gove just said we might not get back to normal until there’s a vaccine. Could be 18 years. Maybe never.
Millions of lives destroyed, ordinary happiness blighted, to combat a virus which poses almost no risk to anyone under 40.
In slightly more important news, deaths in England are down today to 59.
The Covid beast is on its way out.
Let’s lift the lockdown and get on with our lives.
More people will not die because of #DominicCummings The virus is going away. They can barely find it in the community.
It’s the lockdown which is going to kill people.
Walking along the Cam today saw lots of groups of teenagers picknicking, having fun.
The young know they are at no risk from the virus. They deserve to be at school, to play, to go to things, to be together.
Great to see society coming back to life.
Bloody young people, eh? Can't take a bit of hardship for the greater good.

I’m over quarantine when so many of these rules don’t make sense, so I’ve booked a holiday
Infuriated by the government's reluctance to ease lockdown, our columnist has booked a holiday in July

I've not read the story but hopefully when she gets back from her holiday she will be forced to stay in quarantine indefinitely with no internet access.
