Self-described “rebel ethnographer” and “working class academic” Lisa Mckenzie was on Sky News earlier to discuss the protest outside Jacob Rees-Mogg’s house where his children and nanny were subjected to abuse from a crowd of hard left activists. Mckenzie, who is a research fellow at the London School of Economics, defended the abuse, saying “this type of protest comes from a long history of working class political ideas” and even going as far as to say “I salute Ian Bone and Class War for what they did.”
LSE used to be known for such luminaries as Friedrich Hayek and Anthony Kennedy, now they’re being represented by… Lisa ‘I salute Ian Bone’ Mckenzie.
UPDATE: Mckenzie was one of seven candidates put up by Ian Bone’s Class War Party in 2015. She stood against Iain Duncan Smith and came last with 53 votes.
UPDATE: The LSE have been in touch to clarify that Lisa McKenzie is no longer a research fellow at LSE, her role having ended last year. She is now a lecturer at the University of Middlesex.
The principal harasser of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s family and children outside his home yesterday was Ian Bone of an organisation called Class War. He has considerable links to Corbyn’s Labour Party.
Shadow Cabinet ministers John McDonnell and Richard Burgon joined with Class War on a protest just last week in SW1, where they brandished the very same banner that they took to Rees-Mogg’s family home. The UVW union proudly featured it all in a promotional video.
There’s more… Bone boasted that Corbyn’s new chief adviser, Andrew Fisher, is a Class War supporter, who lives just around the corner from Bone himself.
And the Guardian published a cosy article in 2006 profiling Ian Bone and publicising his new book entitled ‘Bash the Rich’. And here he socialising with the Labour Party leader’s brother Piers Corbyn. Solidarity…
A group of leftist ‘class warriors’ launched a vile attack on Jacob Rees-Mogg and his children outside his home yesterday, bearing a banner proclaiming that “we must devastate the avenues where the wealthy live.”
The group, led by the privileged son of a surgeon, harassed Rees-Mogg’s nanny, saying she had Stockholm syndrome, called Mogg a slave owner, and shouted at his children that “your daddy is a totally horrible person.”
UPDATE: We believe the man shouting at the Rees-Mogg children “your daddy is a totally horrible person” is Ian Bone, author of “Bash the Rich”.
