|And a dirty dozen more|
Burchill started her career writing about punk rock for the New Musical Express in the late 1970s with her equally obnoxious then-boyfriend/husband Tony Parsons (though he has since calmed down). Her writing style has not changed in 40+ years: outrageous trolling, beloved by editors because it's reliably controversial and she gets her copy in on time. She describes her style as "the writing equivalent of screaming and throwing things," and we couldn't agree more.
- In 2002, London Mayor Ken Livingstone's civic sponsorship of St Patrick's Day celebrations prompted an anti-Irish rant in which Burchill condemned the day as celebrating "almost compulsory child molestation by the national church" and "aiding and abetting Herr Hitler in his hour of need" (a reference to Irish neutrality in the Second World War), also referring to the Irish flag as "the Hitler-licking, altarboy-molesting, abortion-banning Irish tricolour." This Guardian column was later investigated by police as possible incitement to racial hatred, but ultimately she was not charged.
- "Israel is the only country I would fucking die for. [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is] the enemy of the Jews. Chucking his own people off the Gaza; to me that's disgusting."
- "Islam and democracy appear to find it difficult to co-exist for long."
- "Croatia's not a country, it's bloody division of the German armed forces - scratch a Croat, find a Kraut."
In 2005, Burchill said in a critique of English classism, "Picking on people worse off than you are isn't humour. It's pathetic, it's cowardly and it's bullying." Now let's see where she stands on other denigrated classes of people...
- "[T]hey’re lucky I’m not calling them shemales. Or shims."
- "And we are damned if we are going to be accused of being privileged by a bunch of bed-wetters in bad wigs."
- "Shims, shemales, whatever you’re calling yourselves these days..." (Apparently they're not so lucky.)
- "To have your cock cut off and then plead special privileges as women – above natural-born women, who don’t know the meaning of suffering, apparently – is a bit like the old definition of chutzpah: the boy who killed his parents and then asked the jury for clemency on the grounds he was an orphan."
The above quotes are from a polemic Observer column Burchill wrote in January 2013. Two of the paper's editors responded to the immense backlash by removing the piece from the Observer website and apologizing, causing the usual suspects bleat about censorship; the right-wing paper The Telegraph then reprinted the column online. Following hundreds of complaints, this Observer column and its publication are under investigation by the Press Complaints Commission.. A poll conducted among online readers of The Independent resulted in 90% deeming Burchill's article as offensive, and former equalities minister Lynne Featherstone called for Burchill to be sacked .
In a particularly bizarre polemic against Gay Pride, she opined that:
- Being gay was "practically mandatory".
- There existed a "powerful and loud transgender lobby".
- Feminism was now opposed to LGBT people.
- Asked "Why are the non-binaries such a vicious, miserable lot?"
(Burchill is openly bisexual herself.)
She also, like most TERFs, demonstrated her thorough misunderstanding of the Handmaid's Tale (a book that specifically warns against the dangers of socially conservative feminists collaborating with the right wing), before ironically quoting right wing misogynist and homophobe Brendan O'Neill. 
She's written several books that have received widely variable reception. Her 1989 book, a tawdry work of hackery called Ambition, should be avoided under all circumstances. Her lesbian-themed young adult novel Sugar Rush was turned into an apparently not awful TV series. Her nonfiction Burchill on Beckham, an attempt to cash in on the name of footballer David Beckham at the peak of his career, attracted "some of the worst notices since Jeffrey Archer's heyday." After being forced to crowdfund her previous book, she is currently attempting to promote her new one by harassing young left wing journalist Ash Sakar.  The book focuses on her experience of being condemned for a transphobic column she wrote. The condemnation resulted in the Observer coming under investigation and MP's calling for her to be sacked. So far her publicity attempt has backfired, and publisher Hachette imprint Little, Brown have dropped Burchill. Apparently Hachette was happy with publishing a transphobe, but Islamophobia was a step too far.
She recently announced she had spent thirty years taking cocaine, and claimed she was 'not affected by it'.  She has also reported abusing codeine, and the drug Modafinil, designed to treat hypersomnia
