- Melanie Phillips is a racist scumbag whose words can kill*. Top post title. Top blog strapline.
And here I will proudly announce that the most Melanie Phillips I have ever had the misfortune of reading is the odd quoted sentence, normally while she's being demolished. But I'm a blogger, so that doesn't stop me having an opinion: she's the Cosmo Landesman of political writing - everything she says seems to be aboslutely, precisely, completely wrong. As with Landesman's film reviews for The Sunday Times, believe the diametric opposite of what Phillips says, you'll likely be somewhere nearer knowing what the fuck is going on.
*it is alleged - see comments... Heh!
