And despite himself working from home (and boasting that his days physically on Fleet Street were mostly spent propping up bars), he equates WFH with slacking. Why? Well, as he regularly says, give anyone a modicum of power (or unaccountability), and they'll exploit it. He, and his audience, believe that anyone not visibly toiling is slacking, and that anyone doing anything that doesn't involve breaking a sweat is "pen pushing", or "women's work", or in some way a dodge. Why? Because that's what they would do if given that opportunity.
In the old, pre-internet, pre-mobile days, working from home very often was an excuse for a skive. He did it and therefore, half a century and a technological revolution or three later, everyone who does it must be the same. Because as in everything, he judges people by his standards. They're either just like him and call a spade a spade, or they're a hypocrite.
