Milos: All’s Not Well!

Live from Nanatesta’s Caravan @ Rhyl

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! This morning we stumbled into dismal  consciousness (and vegan seaweed lasagna boak) to read about the perpetual Alt Right headache that is Milos Yiannopoulos and his book called ‘Dangerous’ (which should really be called Tedious. Or Vacuous). Publishers Simon & Schuster originally commissioned the book for $250k but rejected it due to multiple editorial concerns. Milos has since ‘self-published’ his ghost written screed and is now suing S&S for $10 million. In December, 2017, the original editors comments on his manuscript were leaked which turned out to be much more interesting than the book itself.

Milos Yiannopoulos: ‘Love me! I’m Fabulous!’

The original text attacks ‘feminists’ for being fat or owning cats, and fails to differentiate between bourgeois suffragettes, radical feminists or women in the 21st century who support the right to vote, work, and have social and sexual freedom…

Feminism In Action

The original text refers to ‘the left’ in an equally vague manner. Does he mean the Democrats? Hollywood liberals? Socialists? Communists? Anarchists? His weak analysis of Gramsci aside (16), for Milos the left are all the people who have failed to see how wonderful he is. On page 59, he makes a silly claim that the American right are ‘hotter than lefties’ then goes on to discuss Donald Trump…  And Milos, Victoria Beckham jokes? In 2017?

Falstaff’s Message To Milos!

Oh, Milos, if you want to show off your knowledge of Shakespeare, it helps if you have, i/ read him, and ii/ can tell the difference between Henry IV part 1 and All’s Well That Ends Well… (56). Anyway, I got to page 74 then had to drink the contents of the paraffin lamp.

Simon & Schuster 

Simon & Schuster were right to criticise the manuscript as poorly written and badly argued but what the absolutely fuckington fuck did they expect from him? To quote the editor, no doubt hammered by Milos’ migraine inducing narcissism, ‘this is inflammatory, don’t toss it off casually.’ (33) Sadly, Milos will be tossing it off for a long time yet.

Be Seeing You In The New Year!
