Academic Boldly Defies Stereotype

It strikes me that this guy has managed to produce almost the perfect academic paper: it's got the snobby sneering at tabloids, blames everything on Lady Thatcher and tries to claim suspicion of a vast, unaccountable bureaucracy is identical to hatred of Europeans (zzzzzzzzzzzz!). All he really needed was to work in a gay angle and the Guardian column would have been a cert.

Is it ironic, or just stupid, that a guy whining about stereotypes produces an argument so dependent on absurd Leftists caricatures ? Meanwhile, productive members of the public are wondering under what train wreck definition this garbage counts as scholarship.
