Liz love, don't you realise that people are laughing at you, find you very sad, bitter and twisted.

She needs help, doesn't she? Poor thing.

It's just her opinion. It's really sloppy journalism - there are no references to back up any of her statements, except for her own anecdotal evidence.

Just ignore, and stop clicking on the DM website, FFS!

Babybeargrylls Tue 29-Jan-13 10:05:09

This article follows yesterday's Mary Berry one... what is the matter with the DM??

SanityClause Tue 29-Jan-13 10:10:02

The DM's raison d'etre is to criticise women.

Women who work. Women who don't work. Women who have children. Women who don't have children. Women who have children when they are young. Women who have children when they are older. Women who don't care all that much about their appearance. Women who do care about their appearance, but have a different sense of style to whoever is commenting that day.

Do you have a vagina? Then the DM is happy to criticise you!

Well, a few reasons really...

There is something of the comedy about Liz. She is definitely a professional troll, and a very good one I suppose. I get the feeling that if you scratch the surface there might, just might, be an alright person underneath. Also, I do feel a bit sorry for her. Her husband was a shit and she obviously has trouble with the men. Probably because she is neurotic. But she is very open about all of this. She doesn't try and hide what she is.

IK seems like a schoolyard bully. I won't say too much as MNHQ deleted all of the anti-IK posts on a thread concerning her a while ago, but yeah. She is like the Queen Bee whilst her minions sit fawning over her. And she isn't even as good a writer as Liz.

Sallyingforth Tue 29-Jan-13 10:19:23

I'm sure she does OP, but she has succeeded in getting the DM discussed yet again on MN and many more visits to their website, so she is doing her job well.

BegoniaBampot Tue 29-Jan-13 10:41:27

Wonder what she's really like. She's obviously just writing for reaction, doing her job as do most daily Mail writers do. Wonder sometimes what they really think when they are writing the crap they do, as i don't believe they believe the stories and views they write. Probably they take it as game to see who can come up with the most froth inducing articles.

Why is her chicken on a course of chemo?

EssexGurl Tue 29-Jan-13 12:39:02

Sorry, I think that we are all being unreasonable in giving her any air time (me included here - I appreciate the irony!).

Maybe if everyone ignored her, she would go away.

Lives in hope!

Oh, tiz so simple really, how can you lot not understand?
Ms Jones needs to earn a living and quite clearly, has no ability nor talent for anything remotely useful or interesting. However, spewing venom and spite at one of few remaining society groups not covered by Uber-PC veil (as in grounds of race/welfare status/religion/etc), she squeaks her abuse and gets the tut-tutting DM readers in a regular daily tizzy. Job done and pennies in the piggy-bank.

Agree about India Knight - awful woman. Not sure why mn likes to suck up to her... Oooooo will this be deleted?!

Cherriesarelovely Tue 29-Jan-13 19:12:24

Hideous, self absorbed woman. I'm amazed anyone publishes the crap she writes.

nailak Tue 29-Jan-13 19:20:05

it is strange how in the comments, so many older mums defend their position by dissing younger mums, kind of ironic?

Megatron Tue 29-Jan-13 19:23:19

I have no idea why anyone gives this woman head space. Haven't read the article as, having read previous nonsense from her, I doubt anything she has to say would be of any interest to me at all.

twoboyslater Tue 29-Jan-13 20:30:49

As a 20 something Brit, there is nothing I love more than seeing a Liz Jones article pop up on my Daily Mail App - it is literally the highlight of my week.
Liz Jones in the most vulgar, self indulgent, self absorbed, judgemental, hypocritical, spiteful, repugnant example of a 'woman' that I have ever come across. And the best bit is that she has no fear in making this public knowledge.
I love to hate her!

Her views on 30+ parents are dangerously narrow minded. But I don't need to tell you that, cause you all know already, what a massive burk she is.

OTheHugeManatee Tue 29-Jan-13 20:48:56

Jiz Loans is a comic genius. She's the reincarnation of Quentin Crisp. She's totally playing a part, but she plays it so deadpan that people take it literally and get all bosom hoicky about it.

I reckon she'd flatten India Knight in a pub fight too.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Tue 29-Jan-13 20:50:47

I think Liz Jones has mental health issues. I really do.

scottishmummy Tue 29-Jan-13 20:52:20

I think Liz is wily bird who knows buttons to push,every time,on time
and the indignant middle class mummies on mn always get het up and respond
folk on mn are habitually yakking about her,her copy gets coverage. kerching another dm link clicked

LaurieFairyCake Tue 29-Jan-13 20:54:47

I think Liz Jones is hilarious, like a female Boris

I fear India Knight is serious

nkf Tue 29-Jan-13 20:58:28

Sometimes I think the Daily Mail must have someone in marketing who's job it is to link their sillier articles to MN. And probably to other websites.

What's this one? Lis Jones writes a silly article shock. No! I mean, she's normally so wise.

nkf Tue 29-Jan-13 20:59:30

Whose job.

LucyGoose Tue 29-Jan-13 21:16:48

Now that made me laugh! Love it! And her chicken is on a course of chemo?!?! WTF?

MixedClassBaby Wed 30-Jan-13 13:39:48

I'm an older mum and did nearly fall asleep at work at my desk yesterday whilst doing an ocado order. That bit made me laugh. Still, she aint welcome at my fantasy picnic as this kind of crap fuels my DM reading mother who then snipes at me.

andubelievedthat Thu 31-Jan-13 03:46:51

yeah, Liz Jones , columnist in/for Britains 2nd most popular comic, the sisterhood!.

PenelopeChipShop Thu 31-Jan-13 05:49:58

She's doing her job, stirring up ire among women by spouting misogynistic shite. What shocks me more than what she actually said, on this occasion or any other, is that such a job exists in the UK in 2013.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Chandon Thu 31-Jan-13 07:36:45

She IS a professional troll.

And generates lots of clicks and therefore, can be considered successful. Hr articles get talked about. And whether uou like it or not, YOU clicked on it too.
She is a professional troll, bully, annoyer, and MN keeps on linking to her loony articles.

I bet you she is laughing all the way to bank.
