  1. Couldn’t be anything to do with the fact that intellectuals don’t usually have anything to say about everyday life, and often seem more concerned with appearing cleverer than ordinary folk than with being right. The aforementioned trio may not be the sharpest knives in the drawer but their struggles are with everyday issues- and their lack of success cheers people up instead of making them feel small.

  2. Liddle is just jealous. Mind you , he tries so hard to come across as a sort of uber-chav, with his often vulgar Sunday Times football column, his barely disguised racism, etc, etc.

  3. “To the man-in-the-street, who, I’m sorry to say, is a keen observer of life, the word ‘Intellectual’ suggests straight away a man who’s untrue to his wife.”
    Auden.

  4. Well you see, yer interlexuals, they are just a string of yer homersexuals, all joined together like a daisy chain….

    … everybody knows that.
