They're scraping the barrel a bit there, surely.
With 'author and journalist' merely a euphemism for predominantly younger people, who haven't actually managed to accomplish anything yet, it's really just a way broadcasters try to give them exposure and subsequently they hope, credibility.
In effect, publicity in order to kick start their 'career' otherwise you'd never hear of them and give the impression the broadcaster is welcoming all.
Rachel Shabi is another one.
You can't slip a piece of paper between them for woolly mindedness, the only discernible difference being that she's better looking.
None of that would be so bad if any of them knew what they were talking about.
They're like clones and incessantly repeat the same old bigoted drivel they have been brainwashed with, like mindless autonyms.
They all want to be in the E.E.C., they all want unlimited immigration, they're all politically correct, they all hate men, they all want to take in as many 'refugees' and 'asylum seekers', they all hate President Trump, they all want 'women's rights' and 'gay rights' yet bizarrely they are some of the biggest champions of Muslims and they never criticize Islam; which is indeed very strange, as they are the biggest opponents of women's rights and hate homosexuals.
They all use the meaningless phrases 'homophobic' and 'Islamophobia', as well as other favourites such as 'sexist' and 'diversity'.
They all say we need to have a 'grown up debate' and they all pick up on the use of the latest buzzwords such as 'binary' and 'toxic'.
And they all feign outrage and offence, jump on the latest bandwagon of some controversy or furore.
All of which is to deflect attention form the fact that they actually have nothing to say of substance on the real issues.
Anyway, cue predictable outrage from O'Hagan about President Trump bombing Syria.
We said the p.c. brigade were in a difficult position regards to Trump and wouldn't praise him for actually doing something good.
If it were their liberal hero Barrack Obama they would be elevating him to sainthood by now.
No one can trust Trump about anything now he's changed his foreign policy, just like that, Miss O'Hagan lamely protested.
Presumably, she would prefer some idiot who could not think on their feet, adapt to a fluid situation, whose policy was set in stone and could never alter their policy, change their mind or act in response to any threat or action.
A bit like their twisted liberal ideology and doctrine which they stick to and cannot possibly bear the thought of it ever being challenged.
Or indeed, change it.
