Left Chanting Hate Towards Munira Mirza for Wrongthink

On Saturday another Black Lives Matter protest took place and it revealed the left has found a new hate target. Downing Street’s policy adviser, Munira Mirza, who as the speaker at the Hyde Park rally identified “does not believe what we believe in…”. Mirza is a former City Hall adviser on culture to Boris when he was mayor and a firm opponent of woke thinking and ‘grievance culture’.

At City Hall she ended Ken Livingstone’s cultural events where people were hectored about why racism was bad and accosted by activists explaining why Fidel Castro was a hero. She ended “anti-racist fireworks” on New Year’s Eve, just trusting people to have fun and not be instructed by activists about the dangers of racism. All evidence of her wrongthink crimes.

The virulence of the left’s onslaught against Mirza is because they recognise that she possesses a coherent ideological alternative to their decades-long weaponisation of racism for class war purposes. She has a history of challenging the ideological dominance of identity politics, championing an alternative universalist approach rejecting the imposition of formal ethnic categories. She advocates dismantling the countless diversity policies that encourage people to see everything through the damaging prism of racial difference.

Munira does not believe in appeasing the left-wing grievance culture and she is exactly the right person to shape a commission to make real progress on race issues rather than stoking division. Overturning decades of manipulation of anti-racist sympathy towards left-wing solutions will cause an epic backlash. Munira does not believe what they believe and nor does anyone who wants to see real economic and social progress for all minorities.

Nelson’s Column Toppled By Wrecking Ball in Historic England Graphic

Taxpayer-funded quango Historic England has posted a gif of Nelson’s Column being destroyed by a wrecking ball to advertise a debate on whether we should “remove” statues deemed “controversial”. The graphic, titled “revere or remove”, advertises a public forum on the topic next month. The debate features Afua Hirsch, who has argued that Nelsons’ Column should be toppled. Historic England has a budget of £86.5 million…

Previously, there was a concerted campaign to remove a statue of Cecil Rhodes at the University of Oxford, and there have been other campaigns in Scotland and Bristol. More airtime for this leftist hobby horse funded by your money…

EU Wants Cultural Quotas on Netflix and Amazon Prime

marcel marceau

On-demand video services like Netflix and Amazon Prime have flourished under limited regulation, offering a wealth of content to users who were previously stuck with television schedules packed full of adverts. They are consummately pro-consumer. Naturally, the EU hates them…

The EU Commission is proposing to force Netflix et al to have cultural quotas. Eurocrat Andrus Ansip described lumping the services with a 20% European film quota as creating a “level playing field”. Out with popular and entertaining blockbusters and television, in with obscure Euro-art house. Vote Brexit, save Netflix and chill…

Poets for Corbyn


This is beyond sublime, this is peak Corbynismo. 84 pages of left-wing paens to Corbyn.  Guido’s favourite by far is this from Nick Telfer:
Disappointingly not much of it rhymes, such is the modern way. Alec Finlay’s from ‘a better tale to tell’ composed from submissions to The Smith Commission is definitely unique. “Corbyn” by Ernest Schonfield seemed to Guido to be basically a list of sort of things a drunk Scottish socialist shouts in a row (“war criminal Blair”) and it turns out Ernest is a writer and Lecturer in German at the University of Glasgow. So very probably Guido’s guess is accurate.

Enjoy this timely and important work, demonstrating that the intellectuals are, as always, at the vanguard of the revolution. Guido hasn’t enjoyed poetry so much since read Dr Seuss to his children…
