The Euro final loss is a victory for what’s best about England - July 2021 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - July 18th, 2021

A mural of Jadon Sancho’s fellow footballer Marcus Rashford was graffitied after Sunday night’s final. Four semen streaks spurted simultaneously from a tumorous cartoon penis towards Rashford’s face, suggesting a ruined urethra with multiple lesions. Perhaps this satirical penis had been snagged in a waste disposal, caught in a cruel penis trap, or nibbled by…

Who needs Channel 4 now we have GB News? - June 2021 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - June 27th, 2021

Last week, the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, opportunistically pretended to have bailed out a picturesque Cornish theatre that had, like most arts practitioners, received nothing from him. Also last week, Dowden was outlining his plans for privatising Channel 4 in a piece penned for the Times, hidden behind the paywall. Dowden’s favourite kind of policy…

Is GB News a threat to democracy? That’s the million-dollar oesion - June 2021 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - June 20th, 2021

Pity the poor standup in Boris Johnson’s kleptocracy - May 2021 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 16th, 2021

Like a great sloppy spaff, the flying shit of the Queen’s speech has hit the fan of functioning democracy full in the face. More than two million of the electorate least likely to support Boris Johnson are to be robbed of their right to vote, while millions of the sort of true Brits who moved…

Is nowhere safe from the Tory culture wreckers? - May 2021 The Observer - By Stewart Lee - May 9th, 2021

Many on the left have blamed Keir Starmer, and the white working class’s perceived abandonment by Labour’s patronising metropolitan elite, for the political survival of the corrupt liar Boris Johnson. And it helps that Johnson showered our body-strewn streets with costly vaccines, like a negligent drunken father suddenly treating his starving children to a spaff-up…
