Credible man asks credible question

Where is the political moderation needed to be credible in the eyes of populace?

To argue that Corbynomics is not credible in the eyes of he populace would be, candidly, neoliberal sophistry.

  1. I think the need for the men in white coats is clear from the rest of his post – the idea that this ignorant buffoon, beloved of Stool pigeons everywhere is in some way representative of the ‘Middle Ground’ is one of the most comical things I have ever read – by the standards of Germany between 1933 and 1945 or Russia between 1918 and 1990 it’s possible he might have been a ‘moderate’ (and I know there are those on this blog that would dispute that) but in any other context he is on the extreme fringes of the debate – and it says much for how Left wing the UK intellectual scene has become that he is considered a credible voice by so many on economic issues…

  2. He’s just pissing in the wind now, isn’t he? He’s made the cardinal sin of listening only to those who agree with him, and has come to the false conclusion that everyone agrees with him and therefore he’s right about everything.

    Peak Ritchie was clearly the run up to the leadership election.

  3. VP

    I admire your perseverance in reading his whole post. I couldn’t make it – like walking through treacle porridge wearing a deep diving suit.

    I did however read the comments (who could miss reading the thoughts of the likes of Ivan Horrocks?) and I see Murphy implies he believes himself to be a potential target for someone who wants to stop him blogging – perhaps legal action or a beating or assassination?

    I have just choked on my lunch at that sentence:

    Repeated verbatim:

    ‘More seriously, we have no choice but change that discourse

    I will be blogging again, in other words

    Until stopped

    Which possibility I never entirely rule out’

    The comments from the two supporters of Mass Murder (or two of the ‘Gang of Four’ as I call them) Andrew Dickie and Ivan Horrocks are tin foil hat territory – apparently one can read the numerous links Tim posts on here (for exampl) and see that the ‘Overton Window’ has ‘shifted to the right’ – when the Hard Left completely dominate the intellectual debate – it really does beggar belief…….

  5. Who would want to stop him blogging? Mocking him and pointing out how wrong/silly/bonkers his posts may be is not ‘stopping’ him blogging.

    As for more sinister meanings, well really

    “I see Murphy implies he believes himself to be a potential target for someone who wants to stop him blogging – perhaps legal action or a beating or assassination?”

    Presumably from the more moderate left who need to shut him up rather that the right who dance for joy whenever he gets to influence the Labour Party.

  7. “I see Murphy implies he believes himself to be a potential target for someone who wants to stop him blogging”

    Well he’d know all about that.

  8. “He’s made the cardinal sin of listening only to those who agree with him, ”

    Or, in their absence, simply made them up.

    After all, it’s not as if the other parties to all these intellectual heavyweight conversations are often named.

    Sure, there are a few nutters probably willing to share a moment with the guy.. but it’s mainly just The Voices.
