More on James Gunn and Toby Young

Posted on

Some more thoughts on the topic of yesterday’s post. Toby Young has just published in Quillette an account of his downfall, called ‘The Public Humiliation Diet’. The ‘Political Assassination Diet’ would perhaps be a more appropriate title. Despite what some people on both sides of the fence are saying, James Gunn’s career isn’t over at […]
