I feel a rant coming on…
On and off I get to wondering just what it is that pisses me off so much about the self-styled ‘muscular liberals’ of the pro-war left, and today’s one of those days.
What’s prompted this train is thought is having spotted yet another outbreak of obsequious fawning over yet another of Nick Cohen’s tiresome rants in which he postulates – as usual – that he and his ilk are the only truly inheritors of the ideological mantle of the left and everyone who disagrees with them are just bunch of fascist bastards.
Then it finally struck me. Just go for the simplest possible explanation – they’re just a bunch of crashing bores.
Just look at them, Aaronovitch, Cohen, Hitchen – what have they actually got to say for themselves?
Fuck all. Just the same old tired load of bollocks endlessly recycled for the moron classes. Not a debate, just the newspaper equivalent of three ragged-arsed old drunks sitting on a park bench and railing incoherently against the world.
‘You’re all a bunch of fucking fascists, you fucking fuckers!
