Elf and safety gone mad, Channel 4 is all right on types, Meghan Markle can fuck off, and woe is me, I got a speeding ticket.

Ah yes, his rant about H&S was to do with people offering refugees from Ukraine accommodation. Why so many hoops to jump through, he asked.

Turns out that plenty of people offering space turn out to be either expecting cheap labour or sex in return. Single women are getting inundated with offers, many with "strings attached". I saw this coming. Christmas for pervs and pimps, and that's what Littledick thinks is the caahncil being killjoys.

Covid isn't dangerous, NHS is mismanaged, better off going private, and then...
I repeat, doctors, nurses, orderlies and cleaners performed beyond the call of duty during the pandemic. But...
During the pandemic, doctors were content to hide behind their computers. And surgeries are still using Covid as an excuse for not returning to normal.
Ambulance services are allegedly so overstretched that emergency cases are having to make their own way to A&E.

Beleaguered NHS staff have been falling like flies ever since mass testing was scrapped and people were left to decide for themselves if they were well enough to go to work.

(Outside the public sector, this is widely known as 'throwing a sickie'.)
So there we are. One moment it's heroic doctors and nurses, the next they're a bunch of cowards and malingerers. And the guy reporting this, well, you can't trust him because he once worked for Tony Blair. Meanwhile look at the queen. She hasn't died of Covid so stop slacking.

Comments BTL make me contemplate suicide. Fuck 'em all, especially the chief Cunt.

It's quite the service you do Andy, reading that anal leakage so we don't have to - but I say "don't", just for your own wellbeing.

We know there are a lot of self-centred, brain-dead scum out there: there's no need to remind ourselves.

As for Covid: well, a 45% increase in deaths over the last seven days. That can't be hidden by manipulation of the now-meaningless government "dashboard". It hasn't gone away just because our bought-and-paid-for Government wants it to be.

Appreciate it, but to a degree it is necessary because I think that of all the Mail's columnists, Littlejohn gets closest in attitude, language, awareness levels etc, to the "average" Mail reader. Stephen Glover and Peter Hitchens have their deliberately fogeyish and slightly outdated and over-formal pomposity. Robert Hardman and Tom Utley do their "basically decent old duffer bemused by these modern things" acts. Sarah Vine, Platell, Jan Moir etc are all variations on a theme - gossipy, a little bit You Go Girl but not too feminist except in a "Men, eh? What are they like?" way.

But Littlejohn gets closest to the typical reader. Not racist or sexist,m never thrown a brick through a window or gone on a BNP march, just not averse to a bit of racial or sexist ragging. Doesn't know much about stuff but knows what he likes. Invites Camp Dave on the office pub crawl, makes "backs to the wall" comments all night, but insists Dave stays because it shows he's OK with the queers and that they can take a joke as much as anyone. Suspicious of anyone in authority, unless it's a hard and imposing authority in which case he won't argue. Just wants to be left alone to live his life and wishes no active ill on anyone, just a low grade of apathy and dismissal of anyone else.

He doesn't always get it - especially on matters like the cost of living - but he is, I think, the best insight into what the average Mailite thinks.

Sir Terry Pratchett wrote:Quirke wasn’t actually a bad man. He didn’t have the imagination. He dealt more in that sort of generalized low-grade unpleasantness which slightly tarnishes the soul of all who come into contact with it

Good analysis, Andy. Littlejohn's world is one of definitely not racist but you can't say anything these days, hang nonces but some of them girls ask for it, law and order but the police spend too much time harassing innocent motorists, the law's too soft but a bit of hooky gear isn't real crime, the NHS is great but anyone who works in the public sector is idle given half the chance, the Tories are useless but Labour would be worse, I dont mind genuine refugees but most of them are here for the benefits. But. There's always a fucking but.

The thing is, there usually IS a 'but' somewhere along the line, and that but can be justified.

E.g. 'I think it right that society punishes criminals in accordance with a philosophically-informed penal structure, but that's not to say I would advocate for what Socrates suggested when...'

The issue with Littlejohn is not that that 'but' is a qualifier for nuance or enlargening our moral scope. It's rather 'here's what I actually mean, and for one who tells it like it is, I'm a master at being insincere'.

He went through a period of saying "Now here's the bit where I'm legally obliged to say that the vast majority of Muslims are law abiding". That's not even paying lip service. It's saying "I hate them all but I don't want to be visited by Plod".

As said earlier in this thread, he will occasionally name someone, such as Gareth Pierce (both a Dopey Bird, and a Leftie Lawyer who not only represented some IRA types who probably deserved jail for something in his eyes, but also was played by arch-luvvie Emma Thompson) as representative of the enemy within, before hastily saying that of course Ms Pierce isn't personally to blame for everything because, you know, she's a hotshot lawyer and he doesn't want to be sued. A low level greasy cowardice and sniping from safety whenever possible.

Years ago we got a bloke in to plaster over the artexing in the hall and stair well (ceiling and walls, an awful, messy , back-breaking job). This weary but chipper old geezer rocks up with freshly washed white bib and braces, fag in mouth, copy of the DM under his arm. After a while he took a break (brought his own flask) and we chatted for few minutes, not least about his amusement at Littlejohn's column in the paper that day. Here was the classic, hard working bloke lapping up a Tory paper and the digs about benefits cheats (I paid him cash in hand, of course), immigrants etc, all the usual bollocks about lesser people getting one over on the honest, eternally victimised, hard working man. Tapping into resentment that someone, somewhere is getting the better of YOU reader, is what has made Littlejohn a millionaire.
