She Can Run But She Can’t Hide (From the Chris Lightfoot Memorial Melanie Phillips Naziometer)

Melanie Phillips recently sought to outwit the Naziometer, first by moving her blogpage over here, and, second, by not mentioning Nazis for a week or two, and thereby keeping us in suspense as to whether our technology was able to cope with the transition. But it is, and it’s now recording a healthy “four” thanks to this post.


  1. Do you think it worth noting that of the 4 mentions of ‘Nazi’, one was in a direct quote from someone else, and the other 3 were all made in referring to/paraphrasing his statements? (Though MP did use ‘fascist’ thrice in her own voice, as it were).

  2. I briefly thought about it, but decided not to. But it’s characteristic of MP and her obsession with the Nazis that she’s going to end up banging on about someone else who seems to have an obsession with the Nazis.

  3. So where does that put you?
