Pro-Fox Hunting, Pro-Censorship, Ex-Tory MP Louise Mensch featured heavily in the papers last week. Why was that? Has she solved world hunger? Slashed the deficit? Invented self-removing socks?

Samantha Brick and Society's One Size Fits All Policy

The media know nothing about what personally makes you happy. You know what your body likes. I am sick of journalists or magazines trying to promote a one size fits all policy. These blood type, eye colour body mass index diets leave you feeling empty and defeated when you can only survive off grapefruit juice for ten minutes.

I love rage. Rage is brilliant. Rage gets stuff done. Rage, harnessed and appropriate unleashed, can change the world. Occasionally, however, our anger leads us towards a dead end.

Any female on British TV who hasn't wept over her appearance at one point is either lying, or Holly Willoughby. It's so depressingly important.

The Mary Beard-AA Gill-Samantha-Brick Fiasco: Since When Do We Need Miss World Historians?

Philip White | Posted 02.07.2012 | UK Entertainment
Philip White

I have long feared that most people don't want to watch TV to learn, but rather to receive their daily dose of scandal, gossip, sports stats, and, if they want to be really daring, politically polarised polemic - combined, the true opiate of the masses. AA Gill's ill-conceived words only further this assumption.
