Columnist brands Stormzy 'boring and patronising' and 'fully part of the cultural elite'

Staff writer

Stormzy has been branded a "rather boring, patronising, pontificating figure who is constantly telling the rest of us what we ought to be thinking," by one columnist on LBC.

Brendan O'Neill, the editor of Spiked Online, wrote a column at the weekend titled "Stormzy is the new Bono" and when LBC's Nick Ferrari asked him what he meant the journalist struck out at the music star.

Mr O'Neill said: "I meant that he has become a rather boring, patronising, pontificating figure. Who is constantly telling the rest of us what we ought to be thinking."
