Wallström snubs Scorsese

Friday, February 09, 2007 | 2 comments »

Martin Scorsese, famous film director and multi-millionaire was left reeling after a savage attack from EU Commissioner and part-time film-buff Margot "Barry Norman" Wallström.

In an unprovoked outburst, Wallström savaged "The Departed", Scorsese's remake of the Asian classic "Infernal Affairs".

Writing on her blög, Margot starts off with a token apology ("I am sorry, Martin Scorsese") before launching into fierce criticism ("the dialogue never moved from the level of shouting “fuck you“ louder and louder…").

She goes on to compare it unfavourably to Babel, an award-winning film about multilingualism in an enlarged Europe, and invites the director to compare his own work with it in order to "see the difference in screen dramatising and filmmaking" (sic).

A spokesman for the director said "Wolstroom? Who the fuck is that? A politican you say? What was she elected for? She wasn't elected? What the fuck does she want? She's a fucking what? Fuck you! FUCK YOU!!"

    Lovin' it. Wallstrom is the best thing that ever happened to those that oppose EU expansion into a Socialist super nanny state. Only a PC bureaucracy with no accountability can allows people like her this type of career.

    Congrats to Margot on this week's most gratuitous use of the word 'fuck' in a blog.

    Apart from mine...

    Keep up the good work, Madge
