One Rule for Owen…

Owen Jones launches a one man campaign to ban people from calling Boris by his first name today, ironically on a platform called Comment is Free.

In the first line of his third paragraph Owen asks: “can we drop the over-familiar “Boris”, please?”

Then, two sentences later: “If Ed Miliband was filmed flailing around on a zip-wire, it’d be game over, but with Boris, it was all “LOL!””

That went well.

    What a plonker.

    I don’t understand why Jones gets so much coverage. His ideas have consistently proved to be demonstrably wrong across the world for over two centuries. He can’t even write very well.

    Someone remind me who Jones is and what he’s actually done, If anything?

    That’s a very racist thing to say. You are a hate criminal. I’m calling the twitter police to get you locked up for horridness.
    And you are blocked!

    The Diary of Owen Jones aged 13¾ says:

    14th March 2014
    Terrible news! The greatest parliamentarian of the age is dead! Wedgie Benn is gone! WoW! His statesman like bearing and ability to get to the heart of the issue by demanding greater union representation made him a hero to everyone who ever lived a proper life. I saw him on the TV once. I think it was the Ali G show. His socialist principles really shone through. I want to emulate him in every way! Actually I want to be better than that coz he never achieved anything and did rather sell out to the Lipton’s brigade..So I will be a better Benn. More radical. More uncompromising. More left wing.

    And I read in the Daily Mirror that he kept a daily diary, just like ME!
    So really I am already his spiritual heir, if not his actual heir. Which is just as well as I don’t want all those estates and mansions the great proletariat hero owned. He was going to give them to the people, I’m certain of that. He just didn’t have time, dying so young at just 88.
    I shall wear red socks for 48 hours. As a mark of respect and protest.

    But there is something rather sinister about two great heroes of the left passing so recently. Bob Crow and now Tony Benn. And that’s soon after Hugo Chavez who was the greatest leader who ever lived. Greater than Lenin or Mao or even Neil Kinnock.

    I bet these deaths are linked. The evil forces of the Thatcherite, NeoCon-CIA-Mossad-MI5-FBI-DVLA- E.ON – AOL special forces probably murdered them all to prevent the coming uprising of the downtrodden peoples of the world.

    I skyped my secret best-g-friend, @PennyRed.
    She has moved to America with her parents for her dad’s financial work. I asked her if she must hate being in the very belly of the capitalist parasite, New York.
    She said “uhh..Umm..well..I guess..Its so .. Unreactionary and immune to the plight of the working class people..But they do have good bagels.”

    That’s weird. I heard that New Yorker’s loved eating big apples. Maybe that’s New Mexico. I’ll have to look it up in my atlas of amazing socialist facts by Dr Eion Clarke. I got that for Christmas, which I don’t celebrate as its a bourgeois, religious-oppression invention to confuse the proletariat and promote corrupting capitalism.

    But mum says its very rude to turn down a gift.

    Anyway the book is brilliant! Loads and loads of facts about everything.
    Did you know more people have died from the bedroom tax than died from the black death?

    @PennyRed was sure I was right and that there is a plot to eliminate all the left leaning leaders of the world. She even mentioned Shirley Temple’s death was ‘big news on the cable’ whatever that means. I think she confused Shirley Williams, with Temple, but i didn’t want to correct her. She can get very stroppy if you do that. Calls it ‘male domination of misrembering’ and that is a HATE CRIME!
    She is so hardcore! She won’t be tempted by all that glitz and fake glamour. She won’t sell out.

    She is one of the three founder and only, bloodbrothers, slash, sisters of the Stockport urban guerrillas popular front of
    Gramsci, Internationale, Trotsky Socialists.

    PennyRed and me and the Dalai Lama. Although he never replied to my text to join our freedom fighters, I’m pretty sure that was just because the authorities took his phone charger, so he is in.

    As the upcoming leader of the Gramsci, Internationale, Trotsky Socialists, or GITS, I must take care that I am not on the hitlist of the Bildeberger assassins.

    I shall push my rubber plant across to the door and keep my Pol Pot nightlight on at all times.
    And the squeaky floorboard at the top of the stairs will give me plenty of time to escape through the window should I hear the agents of injustice creeping past the airing cupboard.

    Sleepy now. I shall dream of myself, bravely alone and on the run from the forces of imperialism. Clad only in my Michael Foot donkey jacket, red protest socks and Manchester United Pj’s.

    {I didn’t choose them! But as I said earlier, Its very rude to refuse a Christmas gift. .. Especially one from your mum.}

    With apologies to the late Sue Townsend

    Bedwetters going into full panic mode. Poll lead down as low as 1% but briefly recovered to 3% and the incomparable voter magnet that is Boris looking to return to the headlines.

    And to combat this they have…. Ned Miliband – the gawky geek’s gawky geek and Ned Balls – the Maximum Imbecile’s little helper.

    No wonder they’re shitting broken glass.

    ‘Three wheels on my wagon…’

    And on top of this Nigel Farage is only a couple of percent away from pushing Labour into second in the Euros.

    ‘Two wheels on my wagon…’

    Then of course the Little Scotlanders are only 3% away from fucking off with 50 or so Labour MPs.

    I went to a grammar school and we certainly didn’t have elocution lessons. Although we did learn how to spell ‘grammar’. And to capitalise ‘I’. And to not start a sentence with ‘And’.

    I suspect you did imagine your elocution lessons. Just like you imagined passing your 11+.

    As for the post – seriously, is this supposed to undermine Owen Jones’s larger point that Boris Johnson is treated with kid gloves by the media because he’s a “character”? It just looks a bit petty-minded and dim.

    But, despite all this, people like Boris. They vote for Boris.

    They don’t like Gawky Nasal Ned and they don’t like Toxic Ned.

    If the one month election campaign comes down to regular interviews with Cameron, Osborne and Boris ‘v’ Miliband, Balls and (say) Harman then the voters will run a fucking mile from those Labour Imbeciles.

    That’s what has the likes of Bedwetter Jones worried. They’re under enough pressure trying to keep Balls away from the cameras as it is. Imagine if Boris comes swinging into view.

    He doesn’t need to be leadership material. He just has to take votes away from the likes of Ken Livingston and Ed Miliband.

    So far he’s beaten Livingston twice and I reckon, given a prominent role in the Tory election campaign could take plenty of votes away from Miliband and Balls too. If only by reminding working class voters that he and ‘working class’ Miliband went to the same prep school and the same university.

It is hard to think of any other politician (maybe Farage) who would even be NOTICED walking down the street without a retinue.

    Having taken 50+ Scots MPs, I think we could forgive them if, like their forebears, they cut their throats and roasted them on a spit like the thieving pillocks did with our cattle.

    He ‘once thought Johnson a formidable opponent’, that proves he’s a twat.

    Let’s be fair about Mr Johnson. He has the token attraction that he committed adultery ( rather than sodomy). This does not add to his abilities but, at least, he is less stupid than the oaf he is likely to replace who was persuaded to upset most married couples by telling them they are just the same as two men who want to mince down the Aisle and call each other their husband/wife(?).
    Now, Mr B. Johnson is not the thinker that his brother Frank was.
    The reason that Mr B. Johnson is likely to replace the current Tory leader is that his Euro-enthusiasm is deliberately muted so as not to upset the remaining right-wing, if any, of the Party. It is whispered that Nige could do a deal with him. I suppose they could take it in turns to look after Cameron’s balls as, between them, it was they who will have helped Cameron out; a bit like the solicitous relatives buying the tickets for the Dignitas clinic.
    But even buffoonery won’t help the Tories. CMD didn’t quite manage to find a whole new tribe wanting to vote Tory. In fact, they’ve jointly pissed off just about anybody who might have been forced to vote for them. Even Boris the Bullingham Kid is only an attractive proposition to the Thatcher Traitorship because CMD hasn’t got a shred of verity to hide behind. Still, they’re all expendable, but even Hurd, Howe and Heseltine will have to snuff it one day!

    It baffles me that many of these comments are focusing on Jones’ sexuality, age and appearances rather than what has actually been said in the article. Foul play always does leave a nasty stench… I’m getting outta here!

    Get a grip guys.

    Owen Jones is just a troll; a lefty gobshite who moans about the working class and Thatcherism as if he has ever been a member of the working class and was anything more than 2 years old when Thatcher left office.

    But the lefty papers love him, mostly because Polly Toynbee is now enjoying so much time im Tuscany these days she really doen’t have the time to do it any more.

    It says something very tragic about the state of politics today that someone like Johnson is even mentioned in connection with party leadership.

    But then you look at the current crop of Party Leaders… oh my fucking God… even Nigel Farage starts to become appealing compared to those three wankers.

    A one-liner in an article, “…Johnson (can we drop the over-familiar “Boris”, please?)…” hardly amounts to a campaign.
