Peter Hitchens-Prize Prat

In the Mail on Sunday yesterday grouchy old prat Peter Hitchens asked the following question:

"Why do respectable, educated people have anything to do with the moronic cult of football, a celebration of cheating, shamming, spite, crudity and greed?"

I try not to read Hitchens, or the Mail on Sunday for that matter, because the man is quite obviously a charlatan and a self serving snob. But for some reason yesterday I made the mistake of reading his column. I wonder when he ever turned down a pay rise because he had enough money? The man is spiteful, a sham populist and a grumpy old fart too . He is stuck in the Edwardian era with the look of a Benedictine monk trying not to break wind . So my question is:

"Why do respectable, educated people have anything to do with the moronic cult of Peter Hitchens?"

Peter 'The Puritan' Hitchens wishes to take us back to the glory days of the Second Commonwealth. Where if you cant ban it, hang it.

Yes, he certainly is a reactionary old fart. With my post on ice hockey I was thinking of Strangers' Gallery v Commons as a way of solving political problems. perhaps Commons v journalists too.
