Quelle surprise- it's in the Daily Hate, and surely represents a new low? What a nasty piece of writing- shame on you, Jan Moir!

Have seen a thread on this already (hidden behind a DM title). You were utterly agreed with on that thread so can conclusively tell you that YANBU.

She should be utterly ashamed of herself. It's disgusting.

Yeah - we're in mid-rant somewhere on MN about it. Surely she has more than crossed the line?

YANBU - nasty and just a load of supposition really. Healthy men do sometimes go to bed and not wake up! She has absolutely no idea what happened that night so has just made it all up.

Dark appetites? Honestly this is a foul newspaper and shouldn't be printed. I loathe this rag with a passion and am always really cross when visitors respond to my request for an english newspaper with this pile of shite.

YANBU. What vile homophobic bs.

She needs to get her sensationalist idiot brain out of the gutter.

Jan Moir is a disgusting human being, its pretty sad state of affairs that she and others cant respect that a young man has died all they see is floating pound signs. Twats. angry

Iklboo Fri 16-Oct-09 13:47:17

What are dark appetites? A liking for black pudding & licquorice?

southeastastra Fri 16-Oct-09 13:47:51

can i quote charlie brooker: Jan Moir manages to walk the difficult tightrope between being a bitch and a cunt

LouMacca Fri 16-Oct-09 13:48:36

YANBU. Totally shocked by this vile article. Stupid bitch...angry

God how do they get away with it and seriously I know this is a bone of contention on MN but who in hell reads this crap?

Iklboo Fri 16-Oct-09 13:52:58

Thanks Southeastastra - I have now sprayed pepsi over my desk grin

What a vile load of tripe

His poor family sad

Why on earth does she think his death has anything to do with whether or not we should have civil partnerships?

Does anyone actually proof read this shite before it's printed?

boundarybabe Fri 16-Oct-09 13:58:25


Has she somehow managed to turn the fact that he was gay into a cause of death here....?????

Fuck me, that article could have been written in Victorian times. Utterly disgusting.

What a hate filled piece of tripe.

"Healthy 33-year-old men like Stephen Gately don't just fall asleep and die". Err, sadly yes they do. Sometimes. DH's father died in the middle of the night of a heart attack. He was 34 years old and left a wife and 5 children between 5 and 10 years old. He was apparently a fit and healthy man - builder by trade, played cricket at county level. But he had a previously undetected heart condition.

It is an absolute tradegy when good people die so young.

How this woman can connect Gately's death to his being in a civil partnership Christ only knows.

Am liking Charlie Brooker's quote on this grin

I'm so glad to see this thread- I read the article online and was so angry at her and sad for his family. The Dailyhatemail should be ashamed for publishing such evil rantings. But I suppose they won't be.

BiteOfFun Fri 16-Oct-09 14:09:43

I don't tend to read the Mail for the sake of my sunny disposition, so I avoided the other thread. This was linked to in an email to me from Holy Moly- they flagged it up as tripe, and as they are usually spot on I was curious to see what they were talking about. I actually registered so I could comment- I was really amazed how nasty it was. Shocking.

southeastastra Fri 16-Oct-09 14:10:01

ah sorry wasn't charlie brooker was another twitterer, still funny though

minouminou Fri 16-Oct-09 14:12:11

Wow....I actually have a headache after reading that article.
What a piece of work she is....I never read the DM, so I'm not familiar with this slime Jan Moir...but I'll be looking out for her in future.

foxinsocks Fri 16-Oct-09 14:13:34

'Another real sadness about Gately's death is that it strikes another blow to the happy-ever-after myth of civil partnerships.'

so no-one can be happy unless they are heterosexually married?

she's a poisonous witch tbh

not sure you can sink much lower than those comments

NorbertDentressangle Fri 16-Oct-09 14:15:11

OMG! I'm shocked that such a vile article could be printed.

Chickenshavenolips Fri 16-Oct-09 14:16:01

Oh, yuck. I feel contaminated just by reading it
