Hats off to "DMReporter" who created a spoof Twitter feed for Liz Jones's trip to Somalia to cover the famine. For those not conversant with Jones' unique brand of self-obsessed, humanity-hating columns suffice to say that even Daily Mail readers occasionally feel the columnist needs medical help. Her recent work detailing her …
The Daily Mail will now spin it and report of tax payer's money (Gift Aid contrib) being handed over to foreigners.
Go Liz (and keep going)
Her article on getting the jabs for Somalia was hilarious. Complaining that she couldn't get the jabs at short notice at a surgery she wasn't registered at who didn't know here medical history.
Punctuated with typical "I didn't pay my taxes for these jobsworths to tell me what to do" type nonsense.
In case anyone missed it...
...there's brief summary here
What Mrs Jones (Miss? Ms? I don't know.) fails to understand is that, even if we had a completely private healthcare system, she wouldn't have been able to just waltz in to her doctor's office the day before leaving and demand jabs without providing medical records.
She's actually a very good example of the entitlement mentality that causes so much trouble.
I think it was the NHS rant she did the other week, where she complained bitterly that the local NHS doctors surgery wouldn't let her queue jump for Hep A and Hep B jabs the day before her trip to Somalia that bought the insane old harridan to the attention of those of us normal enough to never venture to the Daily Mail's website.
Good work though. I'm sure a lot of other celebs would see the joke and match the donations, so how about it Liz?
You missed how the only reason she had to go to the NHS was because she f**ked up with her private healthcare. She managed to piss off the "jobsworth" receptionist further by explaining that she didn't need to be registered and that they couldn't possibly require her medical notes.

This is a title
This t-shirt says it all really
Captured the tone and sense of self-importance of that mad woman perfectly.
any sensible Dr
Would have given her a homeopathic vaccine and told her she was vaccinated against everything.
I'd never heard of this woman until now, but she's just fantastic
All this time I thought these people were exaggerations so lefties (myself included) could poke fun at Mail readers. But they actually exist, and they're so much worse than I imagined! And then they send her to Somalia to cover a famine?!? Sweet Jesus, it's like Christmas in August.
At that level, left and right lose meaning
She's not left or right, she's the Axis Mundi.
Very funny. Poking fun at the Daily Fail *and* all for a good cause!

The tweet about people thinking she was Princess Di was p[articularly amusing.
