Let The Crazy Flood Out

Jim McDonnell has unveiled a potential leadership challenge when Blair steps down. Me, I’m all for it. It’s a useful reminder to the public that whatever superficial changes Blair has brought about, the main body of the Left is still howling mad.

There’s the usual stuff. Jimbo wants private education banned, lest the rich use up all the good teaching so kids in state schools have to study rubbish like TV or ecobabble. No, wait, that’s what they teach already. Anyway, it hardly matters that the schools don't teach anything, since Jimbo wants to nationalise the pharmaceutical and medical research sectors, so it looks like we won’t need any scientists anyway. Besides with 50% of energy coming from renewable resources, it’s not like we’ll have the power to run a factory anyway. Und so weiter...

But that’s not the best of it. McDonnell is an overt supporter of the IRA – and, more to the point, no one on the Left appears to think this is a problem. It’s a while since anyone on the Left even pretended to care about treason, but having a supporter of the mass murder of British civilians as one of their role models sums up better than Churchill could the moral cess pit modern Liberalism has fallen into.
