Alt-Right Tosspot Milo Yiannopoulos Says He’s Writing A Book About Australia

On the plus side, this will save me having to buy toilet paper.

Alt-right tosspot Milo Yiannopoulos has declared that he is writing a book about Australia. Which is great news, because it’ll save me a fortune on toilet paper.

Yiannopoulos made the announcement on The Bolt Report (of course), telling host Andrew Bolt on Thursday that the book will be called Australia You’re My Only Hope.

“It’s my survey of the state of affairs of free speech, feminism, political correctness,” Yiannopolos declared. “All of these diseases and cancers and toxins that are trying to infect the Australian body politic.”

“Whether it is this ridiculous obsequiousness about welcome to country, whether it is the free speech crisis on campus, stuff seems to be coming to a head in Australia, and if anything since my last tour it appears to be getting worse not better.”

“It’s my last ditch effort to persuade Australians to stand up against the cancers of public life that have so utterly ruined the public square in Europe and in America,” he added. “Australia is the one last remaining bastion of free speech where people can actually crack a joke and not get fired … I want Australia to be a model for the rest of the world.”

Now I know at this point you’re probably champing at the bit to go and preorder a copy. But before you do, it might be worth revisiting some of the feedback Milo got on his last book. Spoilers: it was not good.

It’s also probably worth remembering this is the guy who lost his job for making comments in apparent support of paedophilia.

Yiannopoulos is due to return to Australia next month for a speaking tour. He told Bolt audiences can expect a “more satirical and whimsical” Milo, and insisted that he was a more “sophisticated thinker” than last time.

To be fair, it would be bloody hard to be less sophisticated.
