What next? Now woke police think David Walliams’ kids’ books are racist, fat-shaming and woman-hating

16 17 26

Laughs have recently been a sparse commodity, but the furore raging among the ‘enlightened’ middle classes over children’s literature provides us with a hilarious insight into the vacuous realm of the woke warriors and their world of worry.

The target this time is David Walliams, one half of the duo with Matt Lucas who made the previously funny – and now, we are told, decidedly not funny – comedy series Little Britain.

Broadcasters have been furiously deleting on-demand episodes that contain skits with Walliams prancing about in period costume declaring “But I’m a lay-dee,” Lucas as the disability impostor, leaving his wheelchair behind to dive from the high board at the local swimming pool while his carer is distracted, lots of vomiting, and jokes about fat people.

So while the army of the woke are in a frenzy over the fact that people used to laugh at this stuff, the fact that Walliams is also a successful children’s author has them dizzy with rage.

It has all been led by one of their self-appointed commanders in chief, Jack Monroe, described as a food blogger, activist, journalist... whatever sounds credible.

I know, I hear you ask, what does food blogging have to do with children’s literature? Nothing, but she also has a young son, so ipso facto, is an expert on all things child.

She remains a fixture in the media writing recipes and popular cookbooks for austerity and Covid-19 lockdown while putting her ‘activist’ hat on when something attracts her attention. Like a bored frog sitting on a log waiting for a fly........
