Listen in, listen Ian!
I've found a new Terrible Mail columnist - Liz Jones. Today she complains about how unfair it all is that, well, I'm not sure really beyond it being unfair that everyone in the world doesn't just drop everything to help her all the time. After all, she owns 46 acres of Exmoor y'know.

I'm not sure why she bothers owning it though. After all, nobody there has any teeth and the shop staff "...all have learning difficulties and have never heard of Illy coffee." Poor, poor, Liz.

Something about it not being her fault that she's an idiot who has to pay people to use the internet for her. Hate her yet? Try this then.

You've only just discovered her? I've hated her pretty much since I arrive in the UK and seven years is a long time to maintain a pretty high level of rage!

Aiee! Liz Jones is hideous! She used to write a column in the Guardian years ago called 'The Wedding Planner' or something, all about her impending marriage to (also hideous) Nirpal Dhaliwal, who is also a writer, then the marriage went wrong and they both wrote about it in different papers, and then they got back together and then they finally split again, and then she moved to the country. regard! Sooo much nonsense! She used to be editor of Marie Claire ages ago when it was quite good, but she's very strange and oversharey as a columnist.

Aah, she's the mad divorce woman! Private Eye mention her a bit but I didn't make the connection.

I think the juxtaposition of the photos of her and Cheryl Cole in the "Poor me, I spent lots of money on clothes" article makes it pretty clear that the other people at the Mail don't like her much either.

The point of her article seems to be that she plans things poorly and that it's somehow other people's fault. Oh, and that it's sad that you don't get to beat those who 'serve' you.
What a ridiculous person.

Oh she is awful. She's one of those people who just makes you think Do Something About It or STFU!

Liz has been terrible for ages; I'm familiar with the worst of her work via Mailwatch, chickenyoghurt, et al.

After all, she owns 46 acres of Exmoor y'know.

Sometimes I wish she'd move there and meet the Hound of the Baskervilles.

I rarely wear an item of clothing, even a jacket, more than once.

Wow. I actually want to kill her!
