Controversial far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos has used a spoof story published by a satirical website to slam feminism and the NHS on his YouTube channel.

The former Simon Langton Grammar pupil laughed as he read verbatim the story which jokingly describes a man suing the NHS for not being offered a smear test on grounds of discrimination.

He told his followers, who hail mainly from America, "I am going to read a news story – I have checked this out, I promise this is real, I have not just made this up.”

The story features the entirely fictional character Nathan Grange-Vulva - a fairtrade coffee shop owner and men’s rights activist from Leigh-On-Sea who was awarded £150,000 in compensation and legal costs after being denied the routine exam.

Yiannopoulos, 33, ranted: “It makes me feel furious as a British taxpayer.”

The self-styled 'cultural libertarian' has fallen off the radar in recent months after publishers pulled the plug on his autobiography, Dangerous.

In 2016, Yiannopoulos, a former senior editor at Breitbart News, was banned from attending a talk at his former school.
