Corbynistas Attack Watson in Murdoch Press

vice

Liam Young is one of Jeremy Corbyn’s main (only) media cheerleaders, you’ll often read him spinning for Jez in the Indy or New Statesman. Young has come to the Dear Leader’s aid once again with a coruscating attack on Tom Watson’s comments about Trot entryists. Under the headline “Tom Watson Needs to Stop Patronising Young People”, he seethes:

“Watson’s comments are part of a discourse which constantly tells young people they are disgraceful for not engaging with politics while simultaneously demeaning their views as worthless and implying they are naïve when they actually get involved. His suggestion that Trotskyite “old hands” are twisting the arms of young Labour supporters to move toward the “revolutionary road” to socialism is deeply offensive to the young Labour joiners who know exactly what they’re getting into, and are perfectly capable of sussing when they’re being manipulated. The main problem with Watson’s recent remarks is that he knows they are untrue.”

Miaow.

Watson will enjoy the irony that the article was published by Vice, which is part-owned by Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox. Corbynista Liam Young, another Murdoch stooge…

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
