Well of course he’s a hypocrite

He’s an upper middle class Englishman playing the Stalinist:

If his new ultra left-wing spin doctor had a similar row with his own wife, it appears he must have backed down, as The Telegraph can disclose that Seumas Milne sent his children to two of the best grammar schools in the country.
Mr Milne, the Marxist-sympathising Guardian columnist who starts a new job next week as the Labour Party’s executive director of strategy and communications, shunned the numerous comprehensive schools within walking distance of his home in Richmond, west London, and instead sent his son Patrick to the Tiffin School in Kingston upon Thames and his daughter Anna to the nearby Tiffin Girls’ School. Tiffin Girls was ranked the second best school in England for GCSE results this year, while Tiffin Boys was 18th.
….
The two Tiffin Schools select children on the basis of ability, not wealth, but whereas 48 per cent of children at Richmond Park Academy were eligible for free school meals in the past six years, the figure for Tiffin School was just six per cent.
Mr Milne’s choice of schools for his children, one of whom went on to Cambridge University, the other Oxford, could prove a distraction whenever he is tasked with promoting the Labour leader’s immovable policy of equal schooling for all children regardless of ability.

  1. “Mr Milne, the Marxist-sympathising Guardian columnist who starts a new job next week as the Labour Party’s executive director of strategy and communications,”

    Ahahahahaha. Can we assume that Labour Party communications will now be as muddled as his journalism?

  2. Marxist-sympathising? That doesn’t exactly make him stand out. Wasn’t it actually Stalin he expressed admiration for?

    That’s like saying someone is “Right-leaning” when they have a portrait of Hitler hanging up in their bathroom.

  3. No surprise, as Milne undoubtedly sees himself as part of the nomenklatura. Remember, he believes Stalin, unlike Hitler, killed for a higher moral purpose. He’s so Stalinist that he’s got snow on his boots.

  4. Confirms Corbyn(e)’s real nature. To put a POS like Milne in a top job shows that while he may look like a failing ex-comprehensive teacher he is in fact a very evil man.

    Not a very competent one tho’. A sharp operator would have enlisted Milne’s vile presence behind the scenes and had someone much smoother and more plausible front-of-house.

  5. “whenever he is tasked with promoting the Labour leader’s immovable policy of equal schooling for all children regardless of ability.”

    “the Labour leader’s immovable policy of equally bad schooling for all children regardless of ability.”

    There–fixed it for them.

  6. The free s hool meal stay is interesting. There is a message being put out by the Left around Twitter – retreated by Ritchie naturally – about that new grammar school annex in Kent and just how much ore likely you are to receive free school meals in an ordinary school and so selection isn’t fair and so on.
    Differ et rules for Milne’s kids and Abbott’s kids. Some animals are more equal than others.

  7. Traditionally selective schools select by essay and middle class children are more articulate than lower class children. Is that fair? I’ve no idea.

  8. Establishment background
    Privately educated
    Never really had a job other than writing
    Extreme political views
    Spent a lot of time mixing with other political extremists
    Revisionist attitude to the numbers killed by a dictatorship who’s politics he supports

    A list that applies to Seumas Milne just as much as it does to David Irving. Irving is rightly derided as an apologist for murder, Milne gets to be head of strategy and comms for a major political party. Funny ole world, innit?

  9. although one rather odd fact about Irving – while researching his (to this day highly regarded) book about the V-weapons programme, he discovered that the Allies had cracked Enigma and wrote a whole chapter about the ULTRA decrypts. Then he got invited to have a chat with MI5 and agreed on his honour not to mention it – decades before Bletchley Park became common knowledge

  10. Funnily enough, this will do no damage to him.

    Everybody would give their children the best education they could. So all Labour voters forgive this. See Abbott. Her racist remarks were also ignored because most Labour voters are human beings and not racist, bigoted turds like Corbyn, Prescott, Abbott et al. They know that 99% of Carribean African families don’t have a father figure. So they make allowances.

    Making allowances is not something lefties do.

    The moral of the story is that voters are more human than politicians.

    But then everyone here knows that.
