what is Liz actually saying? that sometimes people on The Internet post things she'd rather they didn't, or that she disagrees with?

FamiliesShareGerms Sun 23-Mar-14 14:10:04

Indeed, OP - bravo Justine

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:11:23

most excellent grin

Liz Jones, who I ultimately feel sorry for because I think she is a very damaged individual, nevertheless makes her money out of making women feel shit about themselves. Her now wailing "making me look bad makes all women look bad, give me some money for my distress" is truly laughable.

MarvellousMabel Sun 23-Mar-14 14:13:54

Eugh.

Well done Justine!

Groovee Sun 23-Mar-14 14:17:58

Am I reading right? That woman wanted Justine to compensate her for a thread which was removed? Yet she regularly writes crap which upsets most of the nation? I think we should be demanding money from that silly wee lassie out of the playground! I think Ms Jones you'll find you belong in the playground!

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:19:05

I do love a well worded and timely smackdown smile

Did someone write maliciously that Liz Jones did something illegal? If so and it wasn't true I can see why she is so angry thats shocking.

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:23:55

Yes, and HQ removed the post.

JoanRanger Sun 23-Mar-14 14:24:08

Our Liz also failed to mention why India Knight was being * quite * so rude.

Because Liz had written something incredibly snide about her career, weight and martial sex life.

Liz IS a troll.

JoanRanger Sun 23-Mar-14 14:24:39

"marital" not "martial"

OOOPS.

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:24:47

martial sex life ? grin

Peekingduck Sun 23-Mar-14 14:25:27

Agreed. Apart from this - "any more than I imagine you’d like to settle up with me for the distress your column causes me most weeks."

That was unnecessary and not even a good comparison. Justine can exercise choice over what she reads. Liz Jones couldn't exercise choice about whether or not a MNetter would make public allegations about her on this site.

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:28:20

I think Justine was simply replying in kind, since Liz had spent much of the previous few paragraphs slagging off other women for not wholly related reasons.

GertTheFlirt Sun 23-Mar-14 14:29:30

So if Justine gives interviews to the DM it's now Ok to read is it? or is there still a MN anti DM campaign?

Kudzugirl Sun 23-Mar-14 14:32:44

Christ did HQ give an interview to the Fail?

<Waves goodbye to all principles>

Southeastdweller Sun 23-Mar-14 14:35:01

Joan You mean this?

Not Liz's finest hour but hardly proportionate to Knight's appalling reply on Twitter.

Peekingduck Sun 23-Mar-14 14:39:54

Gert, to be honest, it's always been OK to read the DM. Just because a few on MN decide to boycott it and feel a bit superior, I'm sure many here read it for some light entertainment. I cringe to be honest when members apologise for including links or discussing something they're read in it.

Peekingduck Sun 23-Mar-14 14:41:06

Oh, and I think I can see why Justine responded as she did, but it might have been better to rise above - as is so often recommended here. grin

Golferman Sun 23-Mar-14 14:43:33

I love the Daily Mail and buy it everyday, great newspaper in my view.

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:44:01

I see no reason to rise above. Liz was rather blatantly threatening to sue.

<sigh>

Oh Liz, Liz, Liz.

AnyFucker Sun 23-Mar-14 14:44:19

Sorry for double post.

Kudzugirl Sun 23-Mar-14 14:46:36

Setting India Knight up as morally superior to LJ is a joke. Her 'mentals' comment (repeated by CM too) shows the faulty magnet in her moral compass.

They are all total hypocrites.
