Not the only dissenting voice- I have been against Labour since Blairism after a lifetime of support.

Ian Bone

Once again the REES/GERMAN axis of evil comes up with a new way to con people that voting LABOUR is somehow radical and an expression of People Power. These are the undynamic duo who ran the SWP for years slagging off lABOUR for 4 years then advising people to vote labour on election day. The theory behind this is that people will need to see how bad another labour government is before the long cherished REVOLUTIONARY PARTY can emerge from the ashes.
For their own reasons they have roped in LEN MCCLUSKEY who wants a Labour vote and Owen Jones who wants a Labour vote so he can be prime minister soonish. This will of course be dressed up in usual mccluskey rhetoric of asummer/autumn/winter/spring of discontent and a plea to Ed to break free and bring in socialist policies.

Owen Jones- A Dickensian Christmas? Hardly.

with 4 comments

Here is a picture Owen Jones had published on FaceBook-

It was accompanied by the following quote-

“This is where I’ve had to sleep over Christmas. Dickensian conditions up here at my folks’ place.”

After many negative comments, ranging from the dismissive to the outraged, the jovial to the sarcastic including my own-

“Stop whingeing about your own very small impositions, which by the way were not thrust upon you.

Think of the homeless, the children that woke up to little or nothing, the low waged who worked all year yet still have little.

My opinion of you is you are making political and economic profit from the misery of the impoverished and disenfranchised.



“Oh, additionally that room is about the size folk are paying bedroom tax for- yet your parents can afford to use it as storage?”

the post was removed from FaceBook.

Unfortunately, for Owen at least, it was not removed from Twitter… yet… which is why I have reproduced them here rather than linked to them.

If Owen believes I have infringed his copyright, my response is once published on Twitter and/or FaceBook, without notification to the contrary it becomes public domain.

If he insists I have infringed his copyright, I will take down the offending material with the proviso it is replaced with an explanatory message and description if he will explain why he would rather this be done than defend his posts.

I think it is a bit of a faux pas by Owen.
