The Spectator: Homophobes Of The Year

News reaches No. 22 that rising star of the right Milo Yiannopoulos, of Catholic Herald and tech-world fame, is to be nominated for Stonewall’s ‘Homophobe of the Year’. The news has come as a surprise to the flamboyant Yiannopoulos, who, despite arguing forcefully against gay marriage on Channel 4′s risible 10 O’Clock Live, has never made a secret of his own sexuality.
Then again, headlines such as ‘The lingering stench of gay marriage’, published after an appearance on Newsnight earlier in the year, may have contributed to the nomination. But the waspish columnist, recently dubbed the ‘pit bull of tech media’ by the Observer, need not worry about winning: Mr Steerpike understands that he’s up against Ken Livingstone.

Steerpike, The Spectator blogs.

After the "flamboyant" (!) Milo Yiannopoulos bemoaned his fate, Stonewall's Ben Summerskill took to Twitter to explain;
"Sadly both the Milo Yiannopoulos and Ken Livingstone fictions in this report were completely invented and unchecked by The Spectator."
But apart from that - great story!

PS Milo is a right-wing posh spaz, though. May this blogpost be the result of a queeny Tory spat of which we lesser mortals know nothing? Who can say?


  1. Oh, for God's sake, who gives a flying fuck about Milo Yiannoploulos?

  2. Yes, he's looking very flamboyant in his Burton's shirt/jumper combination there. Maybe they mean his flamboyant hair.

    And that article of his on marriage equality could have been written by a 12 year old; it's full of nonsense.

  3. Please don't use words like 'spaz'. Or come and meet my brother who has a learning disability and say it to his face.

  4. Okay - sorry.
    It's not really a defence, but "posh spaz" is a meme from Peep Show and I was using it ironically.
    Offence noted.

  5. Very sure Mr. Y is enjoying the attention from empty clanging bells of the media & tech sector because it sure answers to his undoubted need of attention after all.
