In response to Laura Perrins gives Owen Jones a pasting, Vesta wrote:
Laura, you easily managed to bridge the vastly smug Owen Jones’s intelligence gap without too much effort, despite the interviewer’s obvious BBC pro-Jones slant. Laughing at Jones is the only way to counter his gobby posturing. He really is a comedy commie with a faux workerist Northern accent who actually comes from super-posh Bramhall where nobody talks like that. Wonder what the gender pay gap is at his lucrative Guardian bolt-hole?
The sheer elitist arrogance of this wealthy ex-Corbyn clone telling woman what they should be doing with their lives is utterly breathtaking. Why was he on the programme when he has no knowledge whatsoever of working life and spends his time on a laptop tapping his latest wonk theory about how to achieve state socialism – or else cosying-up with the latest doomed Labour leadership hopeful?
Oh I forgot, he’s always being wheeled out by those beautiful slack-jawed BBC types. Remember though Laura, Jones is not just any old Marxist, he’s from hard-nosed Militant Tendency stock, used to have a poster of Stalin on his bedroom wall and has supported IRA terrorists. Nasty individual behind the smug grin, but, lol, hilarious.
