Caitlin Moran: It's Patronising Clichés O'Clock!

Caitlan Moran in The Times.
Did you know she really, really loves The Gays?
Well, they're such fun, aren't they?
Amazing! etc etc.

PS Moran is actually outdone in the "Excuse me while I barf" stakes by this, also in today's Times.

Yvette Cooper, the rather serious Shadow Home Secretary, indeed some would say the Hermione Granger of politics, was in unusually high spirits [Code for drunk?] last week over gay marriage. She noted that, in New Zealand, MPs celebrated their gay marriage legislation in “fabulous” style by singing a Maori love song [They didn't, it was people in the public gallery, btw]. “We can only wonder what would happen if the Minister and I leapt up and started leading a Eurovision-style chorus of Congratulations or perhaps Abba-style — probably not One Man, One Woman but certainly, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do."
