Joe Aston’s column on February 3 2019 began with a description of “the characteristically juvenile resignation rant of vulgar Life gibberer Clementine Ford”. Having disposed of Ford (a journalist), Aston switched objects:

“But Ford isn’t the only feminist cretin currently proffering a begging bowl. Blue Sky Alternative Investments’ venture capital head Elaine Stead, a prodigious destroyer of capital, will not be silenced!”

Aston writes for the AFR’s Rear Window column, which the business world approaches each morning with a combination of dread and voyeurism.
