BBC4 is re running Malcolm Bradbury's The History Man, if you want an insight into the tossers that are currently running this country, watch it. I was at University in the seventies and saw it close up.
The 'trendy' left wing radicals spouting absolute psuedo-psycho babble Marxist-Gramscian bollocks. Their desperate need to out leftwing each other, browbeating anybody who failed to see any merit in their cultural Marxism of which they were going to be the vanguard elite showing us the 'correct' way to think.
OK so they were only kids, shagging their brains out justified by femminism, smoking pot and generally having a good time. However whilst the rest of us grew up, forged careers and had kids etc, this lot carried on playing at being Marxists, whilst accruing the titles,honours, upper middle class lifestyles and milking the system for every penny, whilst telling us that they had the 'correct' way for the rest of us to live.
Not having had jobs, just being professional Marxists, running the country has not turned out quite like they hoped it would. Much the same happened with Agrarian-Marxism taught to Pol Pot in the fifties by trendy Parisian Left wing 'intellectuals', when transposed to Cambodia.
Graduates of the 'University of Watermouth' of the Seventies
Gordon Brown Author of a Parasites Guide
Jack Straw Man of the People
Jacqui Smith in Charge of Drugs Policy
And our beloved next leader of the Labour Party- Harriet Harman
An ultra-feminist gender warrior trapped in a student radical time-warp. Her Orwellian 'equality' agenda is not just sinister - it's unhinged - Melanie Philips
I could go on, but what I am hoping is that we have had enough of this faux-student Marxism, and that this controlling, corrupt, banal version of the Labour Party is going to be cast into the outer darkness forever , and that its advocates rot in the House of Lords that they once so despised whilst sitting around the Students Union.
The unfortunate thing is that this crowd are next in line
Be afraid! One of these men could be the next Prime Minister. God help us.( Which one though ?)
2) David Cameron
8) Boris Johnson
I wonder what their student politics were other 'than bash the oiks and vote for me'
