Defending the inarticulate thickoes. Because everyone has a voice and if you criticise them it's an attack on freeze peach. Evil clever people.

Sorry about the Shitman thing, nurse Ratshit.

Slagging off the "inarticulate thickos" still doesn't make him left wing. This is a really easy position to state any positive evidence of, if such exists. Why are you finding this so difficult?

On what planet, in what context, can James O'Brien be considered right wing?

Railing against anyone on the left who doesn't conform to your idea of socialist purity, giving fascists an easy ride. Which side are you on boy?

Summary of evidence presented so far

For him being right wing:
He voted for a Conservative to be Mayor of London.

For him being left wing:
He makes fun of people on his radio show for having dumb opinions.


If you think he's left wing, just present some evidence of him being left wing.

I suppose at this juncture, it would be too much to ask what would constitute acceptable evidence of his being left wing, and exactly how much would be required?

I mean, by implication he certainly hasn't voted Tory in any other election. Does that count, or is this a damned by one sin thing?

You'd think "being left wing" was a fucking boy scout badge.

I've been listening to O'Brien for a few years now, and what he is, regardless of trite labels, is a man with progressive, thoughtful, intelligent views who is always open to changing his views when the facts change.

Meaningless though the "left wing"/"right wing" tags mostly are nowadays, and especially in the terms that seem so to obsess our bogus medic, if you want "right wing" LBC presenters there is no shortage - they've got fucking Farage & Rees-Mogg, for pity's sake, and that's before you even get to Nick Ferrari. Compare and contrast, if you've the brain cells. PG Wodehouse's remarks concerning a Scotsman with a grievance spring to mind.

O’Brien has been inviting Corbyn on for a chat for three years but he never accepts. He supports Corbyn’s anti-austerity line but wants to know what Corbyn’s strategy is for paying for it. You can see from O’Brien’s only Farage interview why Corbyn runs away. Nigel like Jez doesn’t like difficult questions as thin skinned populist windbags don’t do detail.
