No you said we shouldn't discuss such things on here. Which in my book is turning a blind eye to the problem.

I can see, in a way, the point being made by this thread. There are people on the left who I find annoying, Polly Toynbee for one. They can have a tendency to become isolated in a kind of bubble and not live in the real world, so that they are unable to put themselves in the position of someone out here in shitland, trying to get by from one pay day to the next, hoping that nothing breaks or needs repairing, and just about getting by.

However, I do think that LJB allows his obvious dislike of anyone on the left of the Labour party to completely take over and allow it to detract from the more important job of attacking the Tories and the scumbag right wing media instead.

No. I said the complete opposite to you. I said do whatever you want and carry on.

Good so you stop self-righteously moaning and acting like the self appointed gatekeeper of what should and shouldn't be posted on here.

I don't want to backseat moderate or appear to be acting as some kind of "self appointed gatekeeper" but I can't see how this thread will do anything other than devolve into an argumentative shitshow. Unlike the Brexit thread there's isn't really any broad consensus on what constitutes a "fuckwit" in this case so it just seems like it will inevitably lead to long arguments when a member of the board shares an opinion with someone being called a fuckwit in this thread. Maybe LJB could confine his ranting at Twitter nonentities to Twitter and save us all a lot of unnecessary acrimony?
