The Guardian that well known apologist for anything big Government does has now let the ‘left wing’ loose on name calling. During the week George Monbiot ( have I spelt that right- who cares) did a piece on reclaiming the cyber-commons which roundly associates anybody who does not subscribe to the the insanity of Fabianism as ‘right wing’ American supporting pro big business, pro low tax Libertarians. Thus immediately in my eyes dismissing anything he has to say now and in the future as ignorant, ill researched drivel.
“Both traditional conservatives and traditional progressives tend be more willing to discuss an issue than these right-wing libertarians, many of whom seek instead to shut down debate.”
Yesterday I heard on Radio Four a comedian allegedly called Marcus Brigstock trying to make a link between the BNP and the American Tea Party movement, the BBC obviously not trying to keep to the Charter on Mr Brigstock.
Then this morning another comedian, called Ed Miliband has solemnly pronounced that hence forth his followers shall no longer call the Coalition- ‘The Coalition’ but the ‘Tory led Government’ to make them sound more evil and harsh.
So this is Labour’s big new idea- name calling.
Libertarians, George, are neither Left wing or Right wing, they want to be left alone in peace by authoritarian governments from deep blue to darkest red. We can make the best decisions for ourselves on all things at all times.
