    He can be amusing, but its always from the same predictable angle. Today his Daily Mail column is entitled 'Welcome to Britain, land of the rising scum'.....

    No he's not talented, anyone could write in such a rabble-rousing style laced with colloqualisms, appealing to the lowest common denominator and relying on ignorance and misconception with a load of populist nonsense. That kind of crap sells because unfortunately we live in a stupid world, but essentially it's just money for old rope.

    I read the 'land of the rising scum' article online last night by the way and it is truly awful, one of the worst I'v seen from him yet..

    Yes, I love him because Cherie Blair hates him after he explained to Tony at a dinner party that the main way to deal with Liverpool is to send tanks and aircraft in and blow it to bits. Not realising Cherie was born in Liverpool.

    Some of what he writes is funny and I agee with him especially on waste and the underclass. Although my way of sorting it out would be a but more liberal...probably.

    I don't get all this hate for the mail. I have read I don't know if this is still the case that the Daily Mail sells the most copies in the UK. They have people who write excellent opinions such as Amanda Platell. The left seem to hate and get all stressed out all the time about other peoples opinion if it doesn't match their own.It is frankly tiring. I mean you don't see me makes posts on Poly toynby whatever her name is or that chakrabati woman and the Guardian. Perhaps valium is in order?

    Littlejohn is pretty ******* terrible at life, his column is awful, his 'books' are awful, his attitude towards pretty much everything is awful. I can't think of any redeeming features. People seem to like him because he is 'POLITICALLY INCORRECT!' as if this makes him some kind of journalistic maverick just because he says horrible things about prostitutes and gypsys in his articles.
