‘My Big Fat Stupid Television Producer Who Doesn’t Have A Single Unique Thought In His Head’ (Maureen Lipman)

I couldn’t help laughing when I saw what Maureen Lipman had to say about ‘Jewish Mum of the Year’. Just like every other Jewish mother I have spoken to about this (only one actually, but she said it had annoyed *her* mum too), the woman I will always think of as Beattie finds it most objectionable.

Yet again we have a group of mothers pitching themselves as the best mothers in the world. Apparently ‘Jewish mums’ (they are all the same, you see) will do anything for their children and love their children more than anything else in the world. Strange. I thought that was kind of part of the definition of being a ‘mum’. The last time I heard this drivel was when Diane Abbott claimed that ‘West Indian mums will go to the wall for their children’. Hmm. Interesting way to defend her decision to buy privilege for her son, which, I believe, is far more common amongst the white upper middle class that she claims to despise.

    YES! YES THAT!!! Fuck me, I was SO pissed off when I saw the ad for that programme. Like other mums can’t love their kids as much as Jewish ones??? No one comes out of it well, do they? Ugh.
