Here is a very strange story. The Socialist Workers' Party "had no faith in the bourgeois court system to deliver justice" when one of its junior members accused one of its leaders of raping her, so, instead of reporting it to the police, the party held its own internal court case! After "interrogating" the complainant, they found "Comrade Delta" not guilty.

What would they have done if they had found 'Comrade Delta' guilty I wonder?

This story in the Guardian today made me chuckle. In the American corporate world, this would fall in the category of "branding" or "image management":

Brendan O'Neill points out that the same leftists who now decry the Tories for their (non-existent) austerity drive, were, just a few years, advocating austerity. I think the example of Johann Hari is especially revealing.

Sorry Damo, I only just saw your post.

Probably taken a hammer and sickle to his means of production.

I've just read some more about that Romany Blythe character. That's her who orchestrated Mrs Thatcher 'death parties' on Facebook or Twitter or wherever. The one who is a teacher of small children - in her spare time presumably. The one who has had the obligatory boob-job on the NHS (cost about £5000) to help 'improve her self-esteem'.

Well then, it also turns out that Ms Blythe once occupied a council flat, albeit one of a few within a large town house, in (you're going to love this) - the London borough of Islington.

When the much-hated Mrs Thatcher passed laws enabling her, if she so wished, to purchase this flat (and at a healthy discount), do you think she stuck to her principles and refused to participate in such a heinous act as capitalising on that opportunity and so 'disadvantaging' the proletariat?

Another no-brainer. In 2006 the enhancedly curvaceous Romany bought the flat for £141,000, lived in it for a further four years and then............. sold it. For £298,000. A nice little profit by any standards. A wicked witch she is.

What's to bet she's somehow living elsewhere at a subsidised rate?

A really good article here on the Liberty GB site, about the rank hypocrisy and insincerity of liberals and left-wingers who preach anti-elitism while being very much of the elite themselves.

I was just looking at a Brighton-based (epicentre of liberalism) design agency who have done work for Channel 4 and plenty of other companies. A group of t-shirted, "trendy glasses" wearing guys, with "left" actually featured in the name of the company. I would put money on their political persuasion, yet it struck me again how they fully embrace the capitalist system and indeed profit very richly from it, as seen from their company accounts. Another case of left-wing hypocrisy, perhaps.

What I dislike most about leftists is that they ostensibly decry the very system which feeds them. They fill their bank accounts while complaining about injustice, argue for multiculturalism while buying detached homes in wealthy areas. And indeed work in high tech while (often) using low language and piercing or tattooing their bodies in tribal manner. Furthermore, they claim to be non-judgmental but I bet if someone turned up at the company smartly dressed that would elicit a snigger.

I don't know how bad this lot are but they look pretty typical. Leftist hypocrisy makes me sick.

I do feel a little sorry for her. For a woman, having a man lecture aggressively and jab his finger at you is extremely threatening. But then again, as my wise grandma used to say: "If you're going to play like a boy, you're going to get hurt like a boy, and don't come crying to me when it happens." Some people do need to be put in their place.


Sorry for answering on one of the older statements, but I thinks his behaviour was unacceptable.
I could not understand everything they said because english is an foreign language for me and not even my first foreign language.
This Ms. Penny person comes across aggressive, unobjective, self-absorbed and shallow for sure... but to my mind this is just no way for a man to behave towards a lady no matter how flawed she may be.
My grandma had another opinion than yours it seems, as she told her grandsons: "Ever treat a lady with respect no matter how she behaves towards you" - a woman cannot fight back when it comes to physical aggression.
This pointing the finger is very aggressive. In addition "I come from the bottom and won't be lectured by a public school girl". Does coming from the bottom give you any authority? If, yes why?
Is one not allowed to have an opinion if one has been public school educated?

So what are public school educated persons supposed to do? Just shut up? If yes, why?

Yessica: I think Penny was trying to insinuate that he was some sort of elitist with a privileged background. She played that card and he trumped it by pointing out that he hadn't had a privileged background and that she had. Therefore, she was being a hypocrite.

I see. I did not get it. I have some trouble understanding spoken English (unless it is spoken with a German accent). Stupid of me. I should have restrained from commenting if I did not fully understand what he said.
I think I just did because I heard people use this argument "I grew up up poor. So everybody needs to shut up and listen to me" a thousand times (and none of them had been accused of being elitist before... and all of them have been leftist) and think it is one of the most annoying arguments ever.
But now I see that you told me he started accusing him of being privileged first I cannot blame him for giving it back.

Still I think he has been wrong for pointing his finger at her like this.

I don't often visit Guido's site, but here's an interesting article about some of the millionaire socialists to be found in the Labour party.

This is something the older posters on here will perhaps appreciate the irony of a little more than me, but it has emerged that Arthur Scargill tried to use the right-to-buy legislation to buy his council flat in London.

This information came to light in a court case in which Mr Scargill lost the right to stay in his London flat for life at the expense of the NUM.

An excellent article from the Spectator about how left-wingers' zeal for diversity makes them turn a blind eye to misogyny and other bigotry that the "colour-blind", "tolerant" "liberals" would otherwise be outraged by if coming from a white person.

Aww, poor Miss Penny, complaining on Twitter. Look at the great slap someone gave her in return.

Someone should have told her that when anyone puts a book on sale, they will get abuse. What really ticks me off is she was able to get a publishing deal with Bloomsbury. This world doesn't make any sense.

My consolation is that at least the heroic David Starkey gave her a well-deserved dressing down that one time. Horrible Uber-Lefty psychofeminist!
