The right wing social commentator and odious arse, Toby Young, has been resigned from his position on the university regulator, the Office for Students.
“If we are to stand up as the Conservative party for what is right,” he told the BBC, casting himself in the role of a noble man nobly falling on his sword, “we also have to accept when we have made a mistake.”
He then set his pudgy jaw, gazed into the middle distance and checked with John Humphrys about his pose. “Have you got my best profile” he asked, with no sense of irony.
Young’s biggest mistake of course was widely using social media to express his disgusting views about women’s breasts, disability, eugenics, and working class people, and then hoping people would forget about it.
Unsurprisingly, Piers Morgan said Mr Young had been forced out by the “howling Twitter mob”.
“It would be a sad day for Britain” said Morgan “when a man in the public eye isn’t allowed to be a complete twat.” Before adding, “Or a sad day for Piers Morgan.”
