'Rupert Murdoch botherer'?

Hardly. In a committee session dominated by pathetic questioning and lack of rigour, Mensch was by far the worst questioner. She could barely wait to finish her questions to the Murdochs so she could dash outside and breathlessly tell the press all that had happened.

The biggest thing about this story is that Louise Mensch is back in the news which will please Louise Mensch immensely.

Pen-name?

Bagshawe is La Mensch's maiden name, so given she was single when she was published, rather than "pen-name", wouldn't that be just "name"?

Iain Lee

Blimey, it was Iain Lee last week. There's a spate of nutters. Must be the winter weather.

I'd love to be a magistrate. One with a nickname. Like 'the hanging judge' or Nigel 'the neckstretcher' Fletcher or 'swinging judge Jeffries' or 'long drop Davies' or 'Nielsen the noose' or 'gallows way Galloway' or Lionel 'the yard arm' Pickles or something.

Yeah, my "coat" is the black bin liner. And I'll pick up the rest of my rubbish on the way out.

You can see why though can't you.

She's not exactly a moose is she? She's not got antlers, even if she was educated at a weirdo sky fairy imaginary friend school.

Maybe he wanted to be an under mensch?
