Kirstie Allsopp vs Nadine Dorries: Whose side are you grudgingly on?

THE privatisation of Channel 4 has led to harsh words between Kirstie Allsopp and the culture secretary. Which of these two f**king irritating people do you reluctantly support?

Who talks the most bullshit?

Kirstie has been unable to resist spouting crap on a variety of subjects, including those working from home during a deadly virus, the f**king malingerers, and young people who apparently just need to give up Netflix and they’ll be homeowners.

However her output is nothing compared to Nadine’s years of idiotic tweeting, laying into Muslims, gay marriage (‘I’ve never met a gay couple that wants to marry’) and this weird comment: ‘Apparently I’m racist because I think Chuck Umunna looks like Chris Eubank. What would I be if I said he looked like someone who was white??’

Who do you support on privatising Channel 4?

On the one hand, Channel 4 loves titillating crap like Naked Attraction. Those us with long memories will remember horrors like the ‘real people’ comedy show Kookyville, which made you want to kill yourself to make the embarrassment stop. So in a roundabout way, Dorries may have a point.

On the other hand, Kirstie is right to defend Channel 4’s often brilliant output: DispatchesFather Ted and a host of other comedies, and films like My Beautiful Laundrette. Even Brookside was streets ahead of the other tired soaps. Oh and it makes the only news show that doesn’t suck up to the Tories and Brexit, in a weird coincidence.

Who’s most clueless about the issue?

Allsopp has claimed that Mrs Thatcher would be spinning in her grave over selling Channel 4. This is unlikely as Thatch was infatuated with the super-efficient, price-lowering private sector – how times change – and would have wished the SAS could take out the traitor Jon Snow.

However, again Nadine proves a formidable opponent when it comes to stupidity. She didn’t actually know that Channel 4 wasn’t publicly-funded. She also claimed privatisation would help it compete with streaming services, although in fairness to ‘Mad Nad’ that’s probably just a lie to distract from the Tories’ vendetta against dangerous leftie Baader-Meinhof types like Cathy Newman.

Who’s had the most annoying career?

With the 28 billion or so episodes of Location, Location, Location, Kirstie is responsible for fuelling Britain’s tedious, deranged obsession with property. They should really have just called it Look At My Really Nice House And Weep You Povs in Rented Shitholes.

Nadine is annoying, but strangely compelling. Her tearful tribute to journalists was so fake it made you question any democracy that could elect deceitful snakes like her. Also everyone enjoyed her eating an ostrich anus, although that was more based on hating her. It would have been even more popular if instead she’d fallen into a wood chipper.


On balance, Nadine is far more irritating than Kirstie, and that’s quite an achievement. Also you know the worst Kirstie will do is more bloody house programmes and twee Christmas handicrafts. However Nadine gives every impression of being someone who’d put her opponents in a gulag while claiming she just wanted them to get more exercise.

Working-class couple trying for middle

A YOUNG couple are striving to shed their working-class roots and bring a brand new, middle-class awfulness into their lives.

Nikki Hollis and her partner Thom believe they are at a stage when they are ready and can afford to feel insufferably superior to people they now consider to be more common than they are.

Hollis said: “We’ve worked hard to cultivate a lovely home for middle-class toxicity to thrive. We’ve got a Smeg fridge and a labradoodle, and my Insta stories are stuffed with humblebrags about how happy I’d be if only we could afford an Aga but we’ve given the money to Ukraine instead.

“We’ve also worked hard on ourselves. I now only use profanity for emphasis, not punctuation, and we’ve added a superfluous ‘h’ to Thom’s name so he sounds like he runs a small architecture studio in a converted woollen mill rather than working in a call centre.

“It’s not always easy, and I do sometimes lie awake in my organic cotton bed sheets and wonder if deliberately turning ourselves into wankers is a terrible mistake.

“But it does seem to be going well. Thom thinks our friends and family already consider us to be massive twats who were nicer as we were. One can only hope.”
