What kind of sicko creeps round a park videoing women sunbathing and then posts it on social media?
The sort that jerk off to secretaries striped down to their skimpies on their lunch break?

We’d have heard this story a hundred times before if it happened
As it happens, I have some experience of police raiding a lock-in.

Back in the Eighties, when I worked on London's Evening Standard, the pubs didn't open until 11.30am.

The Cartoonist pub, behind the office, would always let us in early for a gentle White Shield Worthington.

In one of the few recorded raids for before-hours drinking, the doors burst open at 10.45am and in stormed a sergeant and a couple of Plods.

They proceeded to take names. Who are you and what do you do?

'Shaw, Old Bailey correspondent, Evening Standard.'

'Littlejohn, industrial corres- pondent, Evening Standard.'

'Leith, transport correspondent, Evening Standard.'

'Stevens, chief crime correspondent, Evening Standard.'

Turning to the other member of our school, the sarge said sarcastically: 'And I suppose you're the religious affairs correspondent of the Evening Standard.'

'No, I'm the head of the Flying Squad. Now sod off!'

This now seems to be an ongoing theme for Littlejohn
While key workers, from NHS staff to bus drivers, are doing their best to keep the show on the road, millions more are treating the corona crisis as a paid holiday.
Does he really think that people chose to be furloughed? If somebody is furloughed it is either because the company they are working for is either currently unable to trade or unable to pay their staff. If you are furloughed you will have taken a significant hit on your earnings and there is a good chance that when the crisis is over you could be made redundant. In such circumstances I'm not sure that you will be relaxed about the situation.

A core part of his worldview is that everything is a choice. Right down to sexuality and race. Another is that given the opportunity, people will exploit the situation or abuse their power. Except you, dear reader. Thee and me.

And right now, lots of those "new businesses" that Shiny Dave and Gidiot used to crow about over the dispatch box aren't getting a penny.

Like me.

And here we go. What are the hippies banging on about now? What are the lefties banging on about now? Bit of nostalgia over his great mate Kelvin. Bit cribbed from the Norfolk tourist board. You can guess the rest.

What's the word for an article which states this:
So it was only a matter of time before the animal rights brigade got in on the act, too. In one of the more bizarre developments, they are trying to force the annual Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival to turn vegan.
and then
They’ve written to the organisers asking for the festival to go vegan when it resumes next year.
The word I have in mind is fucking dishonest. Well, that's two words but you get my drift.

I look forward to the M*il's Johnny-on-the-spot coverage of protests in Vero Beach.

Bloody Hippy Lefties

Namby-pamby pc coppers honk in support - and guess who's paying them?

No mention of America, instead it's the caahncils (gleefully looking forward to fining people), rotten high profile lefties for breaking quarantine (I'm sure you've missed a name or two there, Dickie), and his ongoing obsession with Tom Watson.

Seems that Tom won't be getting a knighthood, but according to Dickie, despite the protests of many high ranking music people (Paul Gambaccini and Cliff Richard), he's still president of something called UK Music, and that's bad. So everyone who backs him should be fired too.

Then finally he admits that some stuff he wrote about Tory MP Roger Gale was a load of old crap.

What's his bone to pick with Watson? Worry that Watson's nonce-hunting got a bit too close to home?

Old boy's club, one rule for the rest, blind eye turned elsewhere.

At one end are things like illegal drinkies with plod outside of hours. At the other end you get given the keys to Broadmoor.

Watson tried to blow that culture apart. He didn't and backed the wrong man in Carl Beech. But he got people talking.

He's just a ranty pub bore. An unfunny version of Alf Garnett or Basil Fawlty. Ignore the silly cunt.

A feeble anecdote not even funny (if true) at the time was a load of crap when he wrote it. Who'd want to join Littlejohn and McKenzie at a table anyway I don't know. I'd like to have read Gale's letter explaining that he has never worked with Sooty.
