Feral untermensch on BBC Newsnight. Not just off some boat, but actually born here. Recipient, incredibly, of 13 years of State education.
Does anyone seriously believe that this useless creature is of any use whatever to this country? The same goes for the huge numbers like him.
Either “Jack Monroe” called in a few favours to get onto Question Time or the BBC has gone completely mad.
Question Time does not pay guests, but of course the free publicity and attendant credibility is worth rubies.
There is, quite obviously, an attempt now being made to turn the clock back and rehabilitate the reputation of thieving “grifter” “Jack Monroe”.
“Jack Monroe” is the online 21stC equivalent of the fake beggar in the Sherlock Holmes story, The Man with the Twisted Lip [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_with_the_Twisted_Lip].
“Jack Monroe” is but a small part of a wave of lies and fakery that has swamped our culture for several decades. Not just online “grifters” such as Melissa Hadjicostas/”Jack Monroe”, “Supertanskiii”, Rachael Swindon (not as bad as the others, arguably), “Man Behaving Dadly”, Mike Stuchbery (antifa cheerleader and mentally-odd anti-free-speech type), “Dr.” Louise Raw, and many many others, but also political figures (prominent among which would be “Boris” Johnson, of course) and the msm-promoted “real world” “activists” such as Greta Nut.
It goes beyond even individuals, to beliefs and “causes”: “global warming”/climate change via “emissions”, “Black Lives Matter”, migrant-invaders as something somehow positive, “Ukraine”, “Covid”, “Covid” “vaccines”, UK “austerity” 2010-2023, “UK terror threat” from podcasters and tweeters such as Sven Longshanks and others, etc. The tendency of large-scale falsehood might be traced back to the still-flourishing “holocaust” and “anti-Nazi” farrago. History as mixed fact and fakery with, often, more fakery than fact.
Talking of “Sven Longshanks”, the political prisoner, his resettlement fund (to help him get back on his feet when he is released next year) remains open:

“Jack Monroe” stands out from the other two mentioned because she is a fake front or facade, with nothing behind it except her appalling “recipes”. Maugham is a barrister, and had a career, apparently lucrative, in that field before becoming an online personality. Owen Jones too, was known as scribbler on socio-political issues before he became a kind of msm/online caricature of himself.
I have written about Owen Jones previously: see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/04/a-brief-word-about-owen-jones/.
Not for the first time.
“Jack Monroe” is actually more than a mere fake and “grifter”; she is a classic criminal type, psychologically (in my admittedly “non-expert” opinion), and who in other circumstances might have been (again, in my “non-expert” opinion) a career criminal, terrorist, or even something worse. She strikes me as being a dangerous woman. I think that the police should (at long last) start looking at both her fraudulent activity and her repeated organization of harassment against her critics.
Needless to say, the BBC etc should not allow her onto shows such as Question Time (which publicity wrongly validates her).
The worst of it is that, thanks to (LGBTQXYZ? Cocaine-abusing?) friends or contacts at the BBC, which contacts got her onto Question Time yesterday, “Jack Monroe” now has yet more msm “validation”, and many more ignorant mugs will probably be sucked into sending her cash via Patreon etc.
Having said that, and as Abraham Lincoln said, “you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time“. I notice that the number of Patreon mug donors sending cash to “Jack Monroe” is, as of today, 404, less than half of the number donating last year, and fewer than were donating even a month ago.
The tweets above attracted a host of “Jack Monroe” admirers to attack the tweeters. The admirers tend to be men (sometimes also women) of a certain age, and who want to “white knight” for the fraud/grifter. Pathetic.
As blogged previously, I see few if any young people taking “Jack Monroe” at face value; also, few if any ethnic minority people. I have speculated in the past that the latter probably know too much about real poverty or struggle, and /or look upon the swill “Jack Monroe” puts out as “recipes” with disdain or horror.
What I find incredible about the naivety of so many on Twitter is that they have been applauding the mediocre soundbite-uttering of “Jack Monroe” on Question Time as if it were some brilliant exposition of the horrible flaws of the “Conservative” governments of the past 13 years. In reality, she said (from what I have seen on Twitter) nothing new, nothing at all.
Appearing on Question Time and tweeting a bit about the “Tories” does not qualify as (serious) “campaigning“, by the way.

If Question Time is worth retaining (which I doubt), this is the kind of person who should be on it, despite my not agreeing with Patten on everything. Not “Jack Monroe, not Jess Phillips. Etc.
Jesus Christ! People are apparently sad about the fact that hugely overpaid ****-up, Phillip Schofield, has had to retire? I have to say that I never liked him anyway, though I never watch morning TV, but I had seen him on TV here and there.
People now are (or pretend to be) terribly upset about nothing, but often are not at all concerned about far greater matters.
Leaving aside the Martin Amis news (which for me was not in any way major), Britain started to go wrong in the Thatcher era of the 1980s, and started to slide steeper downhill from, particularly, the Blair-Brown years. The UK may be still a bit of a “toytown” or “poundland” dystopian police state, but it gets darker all the time. It does not even have the saving grace of most police states— low (real) crime.
Britain in 2023.
Well said. Russia is a major power, a major nuclear power. If the Zelensky regime thinks that that is an irrelevance, then anything could happen.
