Tinfoil Hat of the Week

June 30, 2006 at 6:14 am (Uncategorized)

It has to be Melanie Phillips, for her bizarre appearance on BBC Question Time last night. Many of you will know Mel as the author of many a hysterical right-wing rant against the evils of human rights legislation, Muslims and other horrendous nightmarish bogeymen. Her latest effort, “Londonistan” (which at some point I intend to dissect properly), is the culmination of her paranoid ravings over recent years. Last night she was no longer Mel the right-wing writer. No, then she was Mel the weird woman dressed in all black with the harsh looking specs, who managed to make Conservative MP Julie Kirkbride look like a progressive. She did this by the simple method of spouting possibly the largest amount of reactionary crap that I’ve ever seen crammed into an hour of TV.

There is no comment that I could add which fully illustrates the car-crash that was Mel’s performance. If you missed it, you can watch it online here; just click the link to “video of latest programme”.

Melanie, you have taken the Tinfoil Hat from a man who believes he is specially empowered by God to police the internet: be proud.
