Momentum Launching “People’s PPE”


This is not a parody: Momentum, the movement run for the people by the people, are launching a new series of lectures titled “People’s Philosophy, Politics and Economics”. The “People’s PPE” forums will seek “to bring political education and awareness back down to a community level”. Will they be achieving class consciousness in the working men’s clubs of Doncaster and Rochdale? Of course not, the first event will be held in a community centre in Hackney.

Headlining are failed Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and Mufti Abdur-Rahman Ibn Yusuf Mangera, an imam who previously warned of the dangers of capitalism:

“Living in a capitalist system, we have become institutionalised into decadence, indulgence and consumerism… Only the Godfearing are saved!”

Ann “There is a money tree” Pettifor rounds off the line-up. Onwards comrades, to obscurity…

Quote of the Day

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
