    Just wait Polly when the real legacy of you luvie club comes out – debt.

    Even the BBC last night on Radio 4 has picked up that the next generation is left with trillions of debt.

    The accounting fraud of hiding it off the books isn’t going to work.

    Blaming the bankers isn’t going to work either.

    As the cheerleader for debt, the next generation is going to blame you.

    225,000 plus 9K a year in interest. Some legacy.

    In spite of which, Guido has had a more positive impact on public life than PT.

    Anything that helps make our political class scared of their electorate is good in my view.

    Well, at least she knew about him!

    I thought that Polly would be so immersed in the leftie bubble that alternative viewpoints would be disregarded as irrelevant.

      If you look, you’ll see that she ignored the hard questions and preferred to ‘engage’ only with the soft ones that allowed to to spout what she wanted rather than what she was being taken to task about.

      Interestingly though the idea that she should only engage with others in the ‘left wing bubble’ was actually advocated by some posters!

    Mr Toynbee says:

    What has this loathsome tub of lard ever done in her entire life that has been of benefit to society? Getting into Oxford on 1 A-level might be considered an achievement, but it’s a bit easier if your grandad is a famous historian. Writing acres of self-regarding tripe in the Grauniad doesn’t count, either.

    She was on the Beeb just this morning, pontificating about how iniquitous it is that people with connexions can bypass the restrictions imposed on lesser folk. It would be hilarious if only the licence-fee tax wasn’t funding it.

    Guido – Just followed all your tweets about that millionaire socialist and you have given a voice for so many people form my background so fucking angry at hypocritical socialists like her. I am sick of her hypocrisy. Claims Labour’s state schools are good and making progress but sends her kids to private schools at a fee per year I have yet to earn per year! She is the biggest hypocrite in the business and you’re attempt to show her hypocrisy was well made.

    You can’t claim Labour’s state schools are great and send your kids to fee paying kids at the same time. It is madness.

    Gordon Brown's Abacus says:

    Rank hypocrisy has and always will be the defining mark of the left – “do as I say, not as I do and don’t EVER ask me to live in the real world we create for everybody else to suffer in while we live in luxury and comfort”.

    Toynbee is the high priestess of this – a truly despicable, absolutely loathsome person. Mind you, is that true about kids in a church school? That takes it to another plumb level…

    Ol' Blue Eyes says:

    Her whole attitude is unbelievable. Her earnings are “not exceptional for her profession”! Tax is a “collective” thing! She shouldn’t be expected to be “like Gandhi”!

    FFS woman, no one expects you to give everything away and wrap yourself in a bedsheet but to decry private schools while sending your kids to them is obscene. To have 3 homes while bleating on about inequality is obscene. Calling people far less well off than you greedy and selfish for wanting to keep more of what they earn is obscene. You are a disgusting woman who disguises her own greed and selfishness behind a mask of left wing politics the way religious hypocrites hide theirs behind a mask of piousness.

    Polly Toynbee – the epitome of everything I loathe about the lecturing socialists in this country that have more money than most of the working classes combined yet feel it is their right to brandish the worst kind of hypocrisy that can be visited upon any of us.
    I loved the dress down she got from Ian Hislop who unloaded on her once on Question Time as she bemoaned the millionaires on the Conservative front bench… I remember him reeling off all of her assets and her response was priceless – now you’re being personal or something akin – so POT OLDER BOILER, BLACK!

    The funniest bit is where she uses her privileged position to be given the last word, safe from any response, to say;

    “Hypocrisy? I don’t think so. I’ve always been honest about who I am, what I stand for and why.”

    Well, duh, Polly, you’re not being accused of being ‘inconsistent’, you’re being accused of being a hypocrite because the way you live is so wildly at variance with what you preach and would like to inflict on others.

    She’s so blind to her own faults she doesn’t even know the meaning of ‘hypocrite’!

    Thatcher's Iron Stiletto says:

    She’s a legend in her own mind.

    She said the other day that the left had a monopoly on intelligent people.

    It makes me more sad that people like her exist in this country, than the rioters and looters and illegal immigrants. They are just the symptoms, while she is the disease.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
