Quote of the Day...

... comes from a commenter at LabourList as a counter to a stupid twatmonkey called Alex Gilmore who—amidst accusations of trolling—pointed out that the LabourListers "don’t go onto right of centre head bashing websites and complain at the posts and articles".

Mike Thomas's reply was rather poetic, I think you'll agree.
You don't go onto centre-right websites because they would hand you back your 'intellectual' argument after they had torn it a new one and called it 'Mary'.

Nice.

Incidentally, the article under which those (unpermalinked) comments appear is one of the most authoritarian, undemocratic pieces of shit that I have ever encountered. I shall fisk it, at length and with extreme prejudice, tomorrow evening...

UPDATE: a technical emergency—trying to sort out my stepsister's new iPhone—interrupted my flow. I'm afraid that I shall have to undertake the fisking this evening...

I only read the title to the post, but I am appalled. Look forward to your fisking.

Mike Smith got the bashing he deserved.

Looking forward to your blog tomorrow.

Thanks for that, I've just spent a very enjoyable 30 minutes reading the post and the comments section on the link.

You can forget political theory, lengthy debate, and years of study in reaching the inevitable conclusion that socialism is bollocks. All you need to do to reach this conclusion is to spend that very valuable 30 minutes.

I'm interested to learn what entrenchment really is, what with me being newly on the game, as we say round here. But mostly I agree with the commentators (except the long digressions about racism) that this is an anti-Tory rant. I look forward to reading the Fisking, and seeing how different it is to my own take.

The revolution comes closer. Communism by legislation. I wish there was somewhere else to live.

Yes, I'd spotted that one :-)

Just when you think there can't be anyone left *that* enchanted with NuLab....

Who knows, maybe Alex will take the bait. Now wouldn't that be fun?

DK, You may like to know that the author, Mike Smith is currently being paid by taxpayers to help write a UK Constitution. Details at my place

Personally, I would set him on fire with petrol and hang his burning carcass from a lamp post for all to see.

Nice.

Yes it is.

An exquisite quote.

I shall use it, of course.
