Looney Left Go Hunting

While the numbers were greatly exaggerated, last night could not have been fun for Culture Secretary and apparently secret Murdoch stooge, Jeremy Hunt, as his talk to LSE was stormed by some rather well spoken protesters:

What they were protesting, no one is quite sure. A little Murdoch, some cuts, some fees, but mainly the fact Jeremy Hunt was alive. Even their organising email seems quite confused:

Hi all,
1. Correction for the open organising meeting this Thursday 5pm in room 3.24 (not 1.24) old building
Hope to see lots there!
2. Tory MP Jeremy Hunt will be speaking at LSE tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6.30pm in the NAB. We will be joining students from LSE, SOAS and UCL by protesting outside the NAB from 6.15. This is the man who has said ‘poor people should have less children’, and is now responsible for pushing through benefit cuts to the most vunerable in society as the dissabilities [sic.] minister.
Bring your anti-fees banners down and lets tell him where he can stuff his cuts!

Witnesses in the room report that the whole thing was rather embarrassing for the event organisers but even more so for the protesters:

“People didn’t know what to look at first – in the end hundreds of us just waited patiently for them to leave. Snoddy was angry; an LSE alumnus who works for Polis said that when Douglas Hurd came along to the LSE 20 years ago they talked to him, they didn’t barrack him, that’s the way to do it.”

Trying to tell that to Red-Fascists is like talking to a brick wall. Hunt was quite right to tell them where to go, there was four times as many people in the room he was already engaging with before thirty overgrown, noisy, children rudely interrupted. Why didn’t they attend the event in the normal way and ask a question like anyone else? If you behave like idiots, you shouldn’t be surprised when you are treated like one.

      I remember attending talks by Ministers at parliament in the early 1990s and found that the question and answer sessions were very frank open and honest. They were willing to say controversial things that the media never reported. One could actually learn far more there in one evening, than by listening to months of media soundbites and gain an understanding of why some unpopular measures seemed necessary, or at least get to understand the reasoning behind such decisions, even if I still disagreed with them.

          This is a group of wankers who have issues with self esteem. They only feel self confidence when part of a gang in which they find acceptance. They are engaged in behaviour which is primarily intended to impress each other. The silly female shills are trying their best to be as right on as the men in the group. In summation this is the politics of the playground.

            You can also hear the smugness in their chants, you just know that when one of them shouts something he/she gets a warm glow inside and a feeling that they have said something profound. Each heckle is accompanied by Pavlov dog type response by the rest of the group who are engaged in what can only be described as a circle jerk of self satisfied mutual masturbation. The females are almost on the point of orgasm.
            To the rest of us however they simply look and sound like a shower of tossers.

    Today’s students have closed and very tiny minds. As far as they are concerned plurality of opinion must be stamped out and only one perspective will be allowed to prevail. During the dark days of the Labour government they managed to get at least three university lecturers sacked because they did not wish to hear views other than their own.
    This is now one party dictatorships are born.

        There was some loon on a 5-Five phone-in who said that the main purpose of education was to allow children to decide what they want to be taught and then teach it to them. Radio 5 approved of this comment so much that they replayed it over and over all day.
        It seems the Labour Party had forbidden any form of education that teaches children how to think.

    We have to ba careful here and not be too judgmental.

    Every so often, some immense injustice occurs that the majority of us cannot detect until some far-seeing person draws it to our attention. We have within our midst, a person of world-class quality. An emperor amongst men, a supreme achiever.

    Who can this person be, you may be asking? Some of the regulars here are quite good at times, some are very knowledgeable, others make us laugh, but a semi-deity?

    Well yes, and what is worse, we have taken to ridiculing him, frequently, viciously and without mercy. I shall keep you hanging on no longer. I have only just found out about his superlative qualities myself. It is none other than TaT.

    TaT has been hiding his light under a bushel. He is one of, if not THE, world’s ultimate exponents of Dubstep. Look it up in Pitchfork Media or The Wire.

    So under this semi-articulate, crack-induced, piss-smelling exterior is a person who can outshine us all in the highest form of art known to the history of mankind. The genre is noted for its avoidance of “aggy”, tending to a more meditative approach which encourages females to become involved at the highest level. Seems as if TaT is unwinding from this by coming here.

    So there you have it, his secret is out. I still think he is a c**t.

    Like most lefties they’re not the type of mob that you’d be willing to over the top with.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
