30% of the country are fucking dolts

Iain Dale is uncharacteristically harsh about Alex Hilton today.
11. Lefty blogging tw*t Alex Hilton argues that all Tories are evil. Alex Hilton is 30, not 12 as you might expect from his rantings.

The Dude and I were wondering what kind of total cunt—after ten fucking years of NuLabour—made up the 30% or so of the population who would still vote for them: now we know.

And a socialist arguing that Tories are evil...? Well, that takes the fucking biscuit, that does...

UPDATE: you've got to love this comment by easyandy.
This is an undergraduate Greatest Hits collection of vapid wishful thinking.

Hard to know which of Mr Hilton's ideals is more absurd, but reckon Thisismanchester got it—the idea that socialism in Britain was framed as an ideal to combat racism, sexism and homophobia.

That is just comical. Can't you just see the working men of the north saying 'Bugger all this talk about fair wages and working conditions, what are we going to do for the local gay community?'.

Mr Hilton and his sentimental liberalist fellow travellers would get a very, very rude shock if they were to wander into a working man's club and listen to their observations about minorities, feminists and homosexuals. Working class? You wouldn't know about it pal.

Quite. Why Hilton thinks that being the son of a printer somehow gives him special working-class Labour credentials, I don't know. My first two jobs—the first at which I spent four and half years and the second, one and a half years—were in small printhouses and none of the printers there were particularly keen on having large amounts docked from their wages in order to pay for other people's benefits. I rather doubt that Hilton has worked anywhere near a damn printer: he's a Miliband-style policy wonk.

I also love this line on Hilton's Wikipedia entry.
His political history is mixed, with a both minor successes and embarrassing failures. He is to some a hero, but to many others a controversial figure driven by an ego considered large, even in politics.

To whom is he a "hero" and when's their medication next due? To me, he's just a very smug black man in a white man's body. Yo, homey...

I read Alex Hilton's article - what a twat. I voted Labour in 1997 because I thought we needed a little socialism. Now I know I made a big mistake. Socialism is OK in very small measures, but ten years of it has ruined this country. P.S I'm sorry - I was a twat.

Daily Referendum,

Thank you for your confession, we have your IP, we know where you live, we'll be coming for you in the night...

On a side note, I would like to say how very fucking pleased I am to see 'the libertarian right' being slagged off at every opportunity by 'the left'. I'm only at the beginning of the article and he's already mentioned us.

I've never seen us or our values being mentioned as often in the mainstream as I have in very recent times, if at all.

Something must be working.

Well done, people- they're shitting their crusty kecks and we've got them on the backfoot. Let's keep it up...

Dunno if he's a hero but I surely do wish he'd become an hero.

No, not 30% dolts - 25% misled tribalists.

There is an extreme control freak mentality, shared by EUrophiles, "left" commentators, socialists and statists. So extreme that humanity, common sense and justice are all lost to the animus of compulsion. Ban this; crackdown on that; we will reduce you to servility all the better to control your every waking moment. Anyone who does not obey is a 'wrecker'. If you don't obey, you don't eat.

Budgie - But where does this impulse come from? These are people with a severe psychosis, yet they are running the country. They are far, far worse than anything in Europe. I lived in France and it does not come within miles of Britain in sheer bossiness.

"Why Hilton thinks that being the son of a printer somehow gives him special working-class Labour credentials"

I read somewhere that at a lot of Labour selection meetings nowadays, potential candidates have been reduced to boasting about their grandparents' having had proper jobs.

Alex Hilton said...

DK: I never knew you worked in a printshop. Was that after Eton or Uni?

Dailyref: You must have been the only person in 1997 who thought you were voting for socialism.

DK: I hope you're well and I am flattered as usual by the glow of your attention.

Alex,

After university. Or, to be quite accurate, after I had dropped out of my microbiology degree and decided to get a job doing design. With no qualifications...

DK

Devil's Kitchen said...

P.S. For extra "working-class points", after Eton and before uni, I spent my year out working as an auxiliary nurse in a medical centre, essentially wiping bottoms for £4 an hour.

Obviously I should be addressing you as "Comrade" Devil's Kitchen

Why is it that so many lefies come across as utterly juvenile?

Caractacus said...

You've got no excuse, DK. I'll never understand how you managed to have drinks with Hilton without decking the slimy little cunt.

Alex is a hero to all black men trapped in white men's bodies.

How did that twat get a Wikipedia entry? The editors are usually extremely dilligent about weeding out unworthy entries.

The man is a useless nobody. Why hasn't this page been deleted?
