Private Eye. Confirmed terfs.

Great cartoon. Will be buying Private Eye this month - had already decided to based on the gender critical stuff inside it.

I bloody love Private Eye. I've been a subscriber for my whole adult life (having previously read my mum's!) and, while they occasionally get it wrong, they are generally the wittiest, most intelligent, accurate, incisive publication out there

I love Private Eye. I often think of sending them links to threads on here. Haven’t done it yet but the Heather Peto stuff would be looked by them I am sure.

Nice one!

Do they have a Twitter feed? If they do, I'm betting that it isn't full of TRAs telling them how hateful they are and calling them TERFs.

Wonderful. Well done them!

I absolutely love private eye. Alas not in the uk any more but always subscribed.

How heartening.

They do overseas subscriptions. I shall be signing up on the morrow.

I hadn't heard about this, it is the pits! I live in the sticks and have been watching the progress of the GRA with concern but without being directly affected by the surrounding issues. But the Ladies' Pond is really special-- I make an effort to go there whenever I visit London and this will totally ruin it. Yeah I know it's minor in comparison to some of the other travesties talked about on here but really I could fucking cry.

Thank you Ian Hislop (if it's still him at PE)

Private Eye is definitely critical - there are often comments on the letter page. It would be good to see investigative reporting about the TRA's rather than just the odd cartoon.

Somethingweird This week's 'Scene and Heard' is about the trial of the TRAs who beat up Jen Isaacson at Speakers' Corner.

Excellent - I had only got as far as the 1st page! Lifetime subscriber here - worth more than every penny.

blackberryfairy Wed 21-Feb-18 21:29:23

I totally agree. Although I might write to them as they describe it as a fight between two groups of feminists: a description I would take issue with.

blackberryfairy Wed 21-Feb-18 21:29:51

P.s. you have a treat coming up when you get to the lookalikes on the letters page grin

This is hilarious piss-take of the hypocracy surrounding some of the left's reaction to sexual abusers from within their ranks

Mouthandtrousersall Wed 21-Feb-18 21:40:39

Oh crikey, the first few people commenting on the simonraz thread think its serious!

RealityHasALiberalBias Wed 21-Feb-18 21:42:34

Private eye is the only voice of sanity these days, on so many subjects.
