I used to follow her on Twitter but she screams bigot and blocks anyone who doesn't agree that TWAW. She'll unblock occasionally, tell you again that you're a bigot and block you.
Shame, I liked her videos.

@Abouttoblow the same happened to me too. I disagreed with her political viewpoint on something, she used her "ram it, Bunty" line and blocked me. Does it to everyone who disagrees with her narrow minded views and then slags them off once they have no right of reply. Her sycophantic followers all pile on too.
I honestly think she's bonkers.
These updates were funny to begin with but she's struggling a bit now and they're samey.
Someone once told me she's got multiple Twitter accounts and uses them to stir things up a bit.
Weird. Weird. Weird.

That's a shame. I loved the monologue she wrote and performed, which hinted at coercive control. I'd expect her capable of more nuanced discussion.

I watch. I love the silliness.

She gets vile abuse from supporters of a certain football team because her uncle was jailed for abusing her sister and her. I can't believe the way she attacks women who don't agree with her. As Janey is a survivor of sexual abuse and the daughter of a woman murdered by a violent partner I would have thought her priority would be trying to protect women's rights. I'll never understand her motivation.

@Abouttoblow I'm of the same opinion. I just don't get it. I think she's trying to be edgy and right-on but just appears a bit deranged.
The football supporter thing is awful too. Nobody deserves that.

Absolutely UpTheRhine I stepped in many times.

I thought some of the videos were funny at first but she seems like an arsehole on Twitter

Shes probably mentioned mumsnet because her daughter ashley is involved in an "are we being unreasonable" podcast at the moment.

Frank, get the door.

They were funny at first but now very samey. I thought the monologue was utterly brilliant though. Very well performed.

I loved the first video I seen, it was hilarious but it's like no real thought has gone into the others.

Where did Frank Get The Door come from, the briefing videos?

The first couple were funny. Now they’re just not. NS has made a big show of sharing them, making her seem relatable and all that.
