'Rod Liddle won't be editing the Independent' - thanks to Madame Arcati


Alexander Lebedev - a man of incomparable wisdom. He is Madame Arcati's Man of the Year. And it's only February

Rod Liddle will not be the next editor of the Independent, the Guardian reports. The paper claims that Alexander Lebedev had a change of heart.

I have little doubt this was due to Madame Arcati: Mr Lebedev is a follower of Arcati on Twitter and visits this site regularly for about 0.3 seconds per ingress. For a man of his intelligence and scope this would be sufficient time to scan the educated hostility to fag-ash Liddle whose politics, demeanour, temperament and flakiness (and hairstyle) are the subject of much concern.

And it was Madame Arcati that exclusively ran the Facebook row between Liddle and Suzanne Moore: while she was the model of civility, preparing to cook lunch for her little poppets, he ranted and raved like, er, someone who thought he was a national newspaper editor already.

Anyone who writes a column for the hideous and bullying Sunday Times is, as a matter of course, unsuitable for the Independent. Incidentally, does anyone know where the ST's editor now lives?

Rod and Suzanne

Mr Lebedev goes up in my estimation. He is clearly a man of tremendous insight, of wisdom, of worldliness. My God, Geordie Greig was right about Lebby! The Guardian better be fucking right. Meantime, Alexander should consider Suzanne Moore for the Indy editorship - unusually, she combines a left-wing sensibility with haute personal style and grooming: she is well-shod proof that you can make a good living from the politics of selflessness.

And please, Alexander, abandon the idea of Jeremy Paxman. He wouldn't survive five minutes. Plus, he's molto sensitive.

The chaps stood around nervously. Group-Capt Hicksley-Alton had been called before the brutal POW camp commander, Lee Dool (sorry, can't spell Japanese). It was thought that "Straffer" Suzanne Moore would be the new C.O. Major Broxted looked at Lee Dool. "We were in Libya together, fought the Germans". "There is no Geneva Convention her" Lee Dool shouted. Of course, if one never saw "Merry Xmas Mr Lawrence" the parody would be lost.

Next you'll be telling us Lebedev is your fiance.

Thank you Ron, if only ...

Thankyou Madame, your powers are immense, and I've noticed that many causes you take up are successfully concluded. Is it that you cast magic spells? Of course Roy Greenslade might want to share the credit but your Facebook story was more interesting than his revelations.

hang on a min, moore works for the mail on sunday so doesn't that disqualify her from being editor of the indy, if working for the sunday times disqualifies liddle? the m-o-s is far more right-wing than the st and far more unpleasant. moore's just their pet leftie to stir up their stinky knicker readers.

I will volunteer to be "Acting Editor" until the Suzanne Moore artillery arrives.

Well, then Ron, you'd better make Madame Arcati Chief Blogger.

And who are you, bitch?

Why do you ask where the Sunday Times editor lives now? Is this code?

Oh for Christ's sake Madame Arcati, stop being coy. I think you should be crowned the Indie's new editoress. Paint your new office pink for God's sake.

Madame Arcati said...

Editress, dearie. Cunting homophobe.

The Morlock pic is just cheap. I thought you might have mellowed but I see you're as vicious and as unforgiving as ever. See a therapist.

Rod would have made a great editor just as he was a success in Today. A gnat like Arcati won't have made any difference. You're just a smoke and mirrors merchant bigging yourself up, you filthy faggot.

Speaking of smoke and mirrors merchants would that be the same Today newspaper that ran the Oklahama bombing with the banner "In the Name Of Islam" ?.

Always wondered who was behind that.

Liddle edited Radio 4's Today - the giggly show with its finger only on the middleclass pulse.

Like Toby Young you mean? It's funny how Toby's turning ever more rightwing (ie reverting to type). He's lived a very privileged life and so I guess that makes sense. But he's quite sexy and he looks like that weird therapist on Jeremy Kyle's horrible TV show. I'll try and get him and Farah to make up when she's released.
