It is. It is about how intolerant the left is to anyone who dares to think differently if that includes people on the left themselves who have done more than they will ever do. Unless you think the students leaders and others are right wingers? 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

How is a multimillionaire Hollywood film director, who worked for Disney, in any way, the 'left'?

Along with millions of other social media users, he seems to have an obsession with Trump and skin colour and an even stranger hobby as a comedian a decade ago in his mid-40s, making playground-level paedophile jokes.

And I must have missed your critique of the Right and its harmony. The Wobbly Right being threatened by the Far Right in the Tory party. And further threatened by the Further Right in UKIP and the legions of proto-brownshirts of the Street Right.

But Germaine Greer, Peter "Used to be called shirt-lifting poof on here" Tatchell and some Yankee cunt! Right! (Or is it Left?)

Copying Ricky Gervais to get some of his popularity, there was a period during the 2000s, when comedians were ironically offensive and told ironic racist and sexist jokes - they worked on two levels, those laughing at the irony and those laughing at the basic offence, hence why the comedians were so popular at the time. Since 2011, the environment has changed and this style of humour is no longer permissible in the mainstream from white, male comedians and those that did it are being commercially punished now.

It would not surprise me in the least, if in the next couple of years, there is a threatened boycott of Netflix and other streaming companies to take off Gervais' comedy because of the ironic offence. Not much different from when the 1970s comedians were no longer employed by TV channels etc.

Exhibit D

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/2017/ 08/17/sarah-champion-spoke-truth-paid-pri ce/

I see the former labour lead on equalities issues is about to be ousted for speaking up for the wrong group of women....you could not make it up.

Lost her job in shadow cabinet

About to be unseated in Rotherham

Of course she was guilty of merely pointing out the facts of the abuse scandal.

Today’s piece in the times by Andrew Norfolk is still a lonely piece amongst it seems many cowards in the media.

So if you have a small minority (<4% in Rotherham) abusing children and you call it out they can subsequently commission a survey to discredit you, lose your front bench job, and now your livelihood. Ms champion. Put all the usual PC caveats on everything she said behind super careful with her terms and claims yet...

A mass walk-out by religious councillors and the need for a ‘clean skin’ candidate...

Now she has far left death threats

Exhibit E

Dame Hodge
Ian Austin and
Frank Field

All going to be witch-hunted out.

John Woodcock resigned after his ‘factional purge’ comment
Debbie Abraham’s suspended

Is intolerance of dissent reaching Stalinist levels yet or have we still got somewhat to go?

Jeremy the herbivore surrounded by a team of his raptors or just misunderstood?

The staff turnover is equally as high in May's cabinet and Trump's inner circle.

When has stability ever been a thing in politics.
