Toby Young - A Wankspanner Speaks

He passed judgment on her book. She pointed out - correctly - that he had not read it. His counter was to excuse himself by saying he’d read the press release.
Isn't that the Delingpole Defence.
Not a scientist, doesn't do science, reckons his superior genius gives him a leg up in making comments.
Not quite, IIRC Delingpole said his incredibly demanding job as Telegraph talking head deprived him of the time to rigorously apply the scientific (or academic) process in his articles but his superior genius allowed him to interpret the interpretations so it was irrelevant that he didn't put the work in.

I've just realized that the 2nd worst thing about PM Pob after his wife's gloating in The Mail (though surely that will be phased out as a conflict of interest?) would be the loathsome Toby Young as a probable candidate for education secretary.

Aren't his credentials for the job actually those of his admirable father's?

I can't think of any astuteness Captain Bellend has shown for education policy or thought. He's like one of those dads who volunteers to run his son's Under-9s football team hoping enthusiasm makes up for a complete lack of aptitude.

He must be prepping for a move back to America with that "fuck you, gots mines" attitude.
Bad news for Toby is that a lot of Americans also think he's a cunt.

Decent but I'll still always hold Stewart Lee's piece as the zenith of Tobester takedowns
