For many years I was a subscriber to The Daily Telegraph. It was, to those of us who loved the paper some years ago, the essence of what an intelligent right-of-centre newspaper should be. Those days are long gone. I don’t think I’ve read a copy in the past 12 months.
When it comes to reporting gender issues, it’s today no less feminist than the Guardian. My thanks to the supporter who sent me a link to a piece by Hannah Betts, more usually associated with the Guardian. Apparently 2013 was an ‘annus misogynis’. No, really, it was, because Ms Betts says it was, in her mind-numbingly long piece (does the paper pay by the word now?):
On the strength of this one article alone Ms Betts is a strong contender for next month’s ‘Whiny Woman of the Month’ award.
