Iain Dale: Twat.

So this is why Iain Dale's blogposts often give false information...

You've got to look at the page Iain. You silly little minstrel.

Evidence of this inability to represent information effectively came in a recent blogpost regarding David Miliband's campaign literature.

The title of the minstrel's post is "David Milibrother Says "Ladies! Tidy Your House".

He then posts a section from David Miliband's guide to holding an effective house meeting. For those of us who know where to look when reading, we can tell that it says,

"Get in from work, give the place a quick vacuum and general tidy."

At no point in the excerpt from the house meeting guide is any reference made to gender. Indeed, at no point throughout the whole document is any reference made to gender.

But of course, the way of the right-wing, working-class-mocking minstrel is not to use actual quotes when trying to make a story out of something. It's just to be a total and utter prick.

    also, "working class-mocking" might mean something if the same working class hadn't been destroyed by large-scale importation of cheap labour by the so-called party of the working class.

    Bunch of TWATS.

    I voted Labour every election since 1970, until 2005. Be proud of your legacy, chaps.

  2. "Importation"?

    The Labour government didn't import people. That's not allowed anymore.

    If you're referring to the opinion of some that we were too soft on immigration, then I'd suggest you take a look at how the government recognised that there was an issue and took steps to address that. The points-based system brought net migration down and only let in people who were going to contribute to our economy.

    Then, the fact that some businesses employed those immigrants isn't really the "fault" of the government. It's just a consequence of globalisation, markets and the EU. And I would say that it wasn't a negative consequence. You're not really talking about the impact it had on the working class, you're talking about the impact it had on British people.

    Keir was and is an internationalist. The foreign workers are still often working class, regardless of their nationality.
