Pity poor Britons playing Liz Truss’s lottery - September 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - September 11th, 2022

Last week, on ITV’s This Morning, the cheerily rodentine Phillip Schofield and his margarine-moulded familiar, Holly Willoughby, offered a desperate member of the public the chance to have their energy bills paid at the whim of a gaudy spinning wheel of chance. Schofield is a cruel god, for whom we are mere flies, our sufferings…

How will history recall the reign of Bad King Boris? - September 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - September 4th, 2022

Boris Johnson’s “victory tour” is the insane peacock parade of a monster of a man who has ruined everything, trolling the entire country, rubbing the noses of those whose lives he has destroyed in the filth he has wall-spaffed into their faces. The French would have strewn burning tyres and broken baguettes all over the…

And the Tories are doing this either through ignorance, a simple failure to understand that the arts have a value beyond…

How much Brexit bull can a proud Brummie take? - August 2022 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - August 7th, 2022

The admirable Brighton art rock band British Sea Power are now known simply as Sea Power, “due to a rise in a certain kind of nationalism in this world – an isolationist, antagonistic nationalism that we don’t want to run any risk of being confused with”. Rumour suggests that the British Cheese Board, the official…
