EXPERTS have agreed that Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow shouting ‘Fuck the Tories’ at Glastonbury counts as an impartial, middle-ground statement these days.
The presenter, who has admitted having no idea whether he made the remark or not, has faced accusations of bias from the right.
But political scientist Dr Mary Fisher said: “If anything he’s trying too hard to be neutral.
“From the hardline right to the anarchist left, ‘Fuck the Tories’ is actually the one sentiment we can all agree with, anodyne though it is.
“It’s one of those things like ‘why can’t we all be nicer to each other?’ in that it’s so wishy-washy that you can’t imagine it offending anybody unless they really try.
“I know that most Tory MPs have adopted it as their go-to phrase for when they’re at work. Especially if they’re in the cabinet.”
Snow said: “It’s actually just the opening line of a whole ‘Fuck the Tories’ rap myself and Cathy Newman wrote to the tune of NWA’s Fuck tha Police.
“We’ll be performing it at this year’s Children in Need.”
