    Catching Up With Cop-Out Clanchy! 

    That sorry specimen Kate Clanchy, who cravenly let her book be censored to appease the woke-weasels…

    Total Sell-Out! Clanchy Crawls To Pinko Creeps! 

    …is now telling us how creepy are the dorks who call the shots at Picador publishers…

    ‘..dorks’ being my way of defining that publisher’s “focus group, ” which banned words such as “handicap” and “disfigured” from her work.

    These uptight mush-noggins are absurdly described as a team of experts…assembled by Picador to “detect and reform” the “problematic racism and ableism” in her work.



    Like, ‘experts’ on what?

    Uptight Asininity?

    If Picador paid the klutzes, they’d have been better off hiring the first half-dozen normal folk that walked past their office on a Monday morning.

    A shop assistant, a bus conductor, a bank clerk, a plumber?

    A panel comprising such people would know better what words are in use among the non-decadent elements of society.



    Hell, even a couple of homeless winos slouched in an adjacent door-way could have told them that ‘handicap’ and ‘disfigured’ are perfectly normal words used in the real world.

    But not in the Twilight Wokery Zone, clearly.

    No sympathy for Clancy, though.

    She should have self-published rather than let her book be censored.

      Are these ‘experts’ all hand-picked for leftwing woke opinions, or does Picador even try to balance its censorship racket?

    Another Word Hi-Jacked! Update=Censor! 

    I’m talking about the pathetic plonkers who run the publishing house Picador, spineless collabos who have knuckled under to PC bullies.


    They are currently “discussing the best way to update the book for future editions”.

    ‘The book‘ is not facing an ‘update‘ but vicious wokestapo censorship.

    Various uptight clowns have taken exception to ‘racist‘ content, like ‘almond-shaped eyes!’
    When the public were allowed to use public transport here in Jakarta, I would often find myself sitting opposite somebody with almond-shaped eyes


    Eyeshadow Tips for Almond Eyes

    If set in a pretty face, not at all a dire experience. 
    Another phrase up for obliteration is ‘chocolate-coloured,‘ when applied to skin.
    What is wrong with that? 

    Chocolate is brown. 

    It’s also nice. 

    Nothing racist about it. 

    The authoress, Kate Clanchy, who is grovelling –
    “I will also take time to reflect upon views of the many readers of colour who have responded to my writing to put these learnings into practice in my work as both teacher and writer.”

    – does not deserve support, but…



    …..we need to be vocal on her behalf nevertheless, because loads of whining uppities are putting the boot in.
