10. I have mostly managed to avoid Julie B. in recent years..

as shown by the fact that the things that have impressed me most (negatively) about her are that, despite being supposedly a leftie, she was quite keen on Maggie Thatcher and the Iraq war and not very fond of the Irish. Oh, and quite keen on hard drugs. But I have encountered a bit of her more recent obsession with trans people. I think that she's just a vile journalist of a certain generation - some got their start in student journalism; some in youth 'n music journalism; but they all ended up in the same nastiness-for-nastiness' sake category. There are similar types in younger generations, but they tend to stick to social media rather than combining it with print journalism. Or maybe I'm just becoming more successful in avoiding the gutter press.
