It’s definitely time for an Order of the OTT given some of the absurd hyperbole that lefties have been spouting this week. Revolutionary darling Owen Jones gets a special commendation for his attempt to pull up the ladder with his “Abolish Oxbridge” campaign. Guido is sure it must be a spoof.
However Red Ken’s bad case of foot-in-mouth-disease has struck again, leaving even the most loyal of Labourites wincing. Showing his characteristically spectacular poor judgement, Ken described Boris’s new Chief of Staff as the “the Mladic of local government” at a campaign event last night. Eddie Lister reformed Wandsworth Council, streamlining services and creating savings. Mladic killed 18,000 Muslims. Good day for Boris.
