Today's outpouring in the Mail takes not just the biscuit but a whole containerload of buttery-soft shortbread.

From the previous thread...

Anyone who claims to love animals as much as Liz wouldn't set foot in Harrods much less actually purchase stuff from their pet department.

But then again this is Liz the teetotal vegan who drinks champagne and cocktails and also wears leather and eats cheese so why am I not surprised?

If she really loved animals she wouldn't have kept poor old Squeaky in terrible pain for weeks before having him put down, just because she'd have been bereft without him.

Selfish and cruel woman.

Thanks for the new thread Admin

How can Squeaky have been put down though? He is in a photo in todays article captioned as having been there over her solitary New Year. Seriously lol, have a look. I quote the caption as a cut/paste

Cat lady: Liz Jones with Squeaky the cat, who was one of her only friends over New Year
Plus photo...

Squeaky died in March.

The caption writers haven't the faintest idea what they're doing. The pic of her by the fire is one that's been used before in her columns and was taken in the old Somerset house.

IIRC the cat called Grebo is no more as well. Liz seems to have the Kiss of Death about her.....

I lurk in this thread from time to time, just wanted to say any animal lover who visits Harrods' pets department would be very upset. I've seen random pet shops who cared better for their animals. Vile.

Um, you aren't Liz's ex Trevor of the TCP aftershave who 'ran off with a stylist called Jenny' are you?

...a loving pet owner does not prolong their pet's suffering just because the owner doesn't want to be without them any more. The ultimate in selfishness, IMO.

And today's whingefest takes us full circle - back to the old diatribe of "I had some friends, but then I wrote about their personal lives and/or insulted them in the national press - why, oh why, won't they talk to me any more? Why me? Waaah"

As somebody in the comments pointed out - if one friend dumps you, it might be them. If two friends dump you, it might be both of you. If all your friends dump you, it's you.

... and another thing!

She has the AUDACITY to print this:

"And this loneliness, friendless thing, can happen to anyone. My oldest sister Clare was once married with two kids and an active social life. When she fell over just before Christmas and broke her hip, there was no one she could call. When she got home from the hospital to her tiny flat, it was cold, without even a bottle of milk."

Excuse me for asking, Liz dear, but where the Blinkin' Blimmin Heck were you????? No one she could call You couldn't possibly pop round and switch the heating on, buy a loaf of bread and a pint of milk for her? Or, if you're too busy being frightfully important (as well as "funny, kind, generous and interesting") perhaps pay your assistant to do it? Enjoy your vat of gin.

I hope you are right and that it is a mistake by the caption writers, others on the DM site have noticed too. The one captioned as Squeaky though is one that I havent seen before. I've seen the fireside one many times, but the one captioned as Squeaky looks like it is in her new house, its certainly the same room as the main photo with Michael and her on the bed, which I also havent seen before.

I remember the Diary, I think, although I havent checked it, that I offered my own sad condolences on there along with all the others. Anyone recognise which cat it actually is in that photo? I lose track over time as to which is which, and I only actually read that caption in the first place as the black cat in it looks very much like my own. I usually skim the stuff under all the pics and wouldnt normally have noticed at all, but for the similarity to mine.

This is the sister she wrote about just before Christmas and said she was an alcoholic.

But there are always two sides to every story. My sister, once admitted with her fractured hip, suffered from alcohol withdrawal Ė the most common cause of breaks in limbs in the over-60 woman.
This is followed by extreme cold in the limbs which, as most women of this age donít have pensions or a husband, is as endemic as vodka.

No wonder her family don't want anything to do with her when she puts all their faults and problems in print. And what in the name of all that's holy is the second paragraph about?

I have a full time job, plus a second one in the evenings, two teenage boys to ferry around and a house to run and I've read her articles. What say you?

I thought Sunday's Dreary was ludicrous, what with sixteen voyeuristic cats scoffing prawns on her cashmere duvet cover, blah, blah. Total bloody nutcase! But then I read her pity-fest about the Christmas/New Year period, which was at complete odds with the drivel she 'wrote' the previous week about not having to put up with obnoxious relatives and greasy plates at this time of year. And her crap tattoo must have shrunk as, in that shot of her in a bar or whatever, there're no hooves (paws) poking out of her tee-shirt sleeve. I agree her bedroom looks dire. I thought she was supposed to be at the cutting edge of all things wonderful and trendy, but it looks like some old biddy's parlour. Dreadful!

My mum had wallpaper like that back in 1965.

I don't think you get Farrow & Ball in rented houses. Liz must be so cross.

I bet the pic of her in the bar is probably one reused from some other farticle which accounts for no sighting of the crap tattoo.

*reads the "January is the loneliest month" article*

God that whinefest was hard to get through. IF she didn't write about everyone she knows then maybe people would care about her. You can write about things and your life without naming names Liz.

What I cannot understand is why that article had to be ALL about her?

She could have done an article about the lonely older generation out there who never see anyone and don't have a column or website on which to air their despair. Or visited a homeless unit.

Or gone to a mental hospital and speak to the really depressed who don't tell anyone in print that they don't want to wake up anymore and don't wait for someone to reply to them to check on them.

Someone needs to sit her down and make her listen to the word of "Streets of London" by Ralph McTell:

"So how can you tell me you're lonely,
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind"

Stop feeling so bloody sorry for yourself woman and build bridges without putting them into print.

Am now going to make myself a cup of tea and nom some nice biccies.

Oh, that's one of my all-time favourite songs! I have the sheet music right here in the piano stool! Fabulous song, beautiful dreamy harmonies.

Sorry....back on topic!

She thinks the homeless are "scary" and "smelly" and don't want to be helped because they're happy as they are.
