Best Insult Competition
Competition time. On the internet there are currently many criticisms of the Labour Party. Many of these are justified, or at least internally consistent.
But there are others which are hyperbolic, stupid or just simply baffling. There will be a small prize for whoever can find the most over the top and/or incomprehensible insult aimed either at the Labour Party in general or any member of the Labour Party specifically. Here's a few possible categories, to get you started:
The comparison: anonymous commentators all over the internet follow the BNP in comparing Zimbabwe to Britain. Many write that we are governed by ZaNu-Labour, while other, more sober minded analysts like one of politicalbetting's guest editors think that while Britain is not yet like Zimbabwe, there is no dispute about the direction of travel. And did you know that having been a Labour supporter in the past is like being a victim of domestic violence?
The niche policy criticism: apparently Labour managed to make "absolutely everyone under thirty who likes a drink or two feel just a little bit like a stain on society" (maybe because of the smoking ban?!)
The historical analogy: Historian David Starkey says that Gordon Brown is the worst prime minister for 1,100 years (as anyone who remembers John Major will know, he is wrong by at least 1,088 years) and that, erm, our education system should learn from the Tudors because back then children learned facts rather than just looking things up on the internet.
The personal insult: Any insults will have to be very, very good indeed to beat the explanation by the anonymous libertarian about why he calls "Harriet Harperson" a 'lying whore'.
