Must Be The Winter Weather...

But it seems like several unpleasant (to say the least) old sods have been popping their clogs lately*. The blogging world united over the passing of Pinochet, with bloggers outdoing each other in wishing him a speedy trip to Hades. I refrained (mainly because I had other things to do at the time), but I will bring your attention to this. That's right folks, the Ex-Militant Tendency leader of Liverpool Council, John Hamilton, has snuffed it. He was 84. Funny that, since '84 was the year that I was born, under that Militant Council in Liverpool. And I can't say I'll be sad to see this bugger go. In fact, I might just pop to the local supermarket and acquire some wine to celebrate.

The snivelling roach of a specimen that is Derek Hatton, his Deputy, is perhaps a little better known. He was last spotted working as a crooner in dodgy nigthclubs (see picture).

Personally, and I seldom say this, I would have liked to have given the both of them a good kicking.

As for an obituary, you might recall Militant Tendency ignoring the then Conservative Government's budgets, thus bankrupting Liverpool Council in 1984-85, leading to Kinnock's now infamous 1985 party conference speech. When they realised they had bankrupted the council, they attempted to comply with relevant rules by sacking all council staff. Suffice it to say that the delivery services refused point blank to delver the redundancy notices. Thus it was that those cuddly, lovable, caring so-called socialists of Militant Tendency thought a Really Good Idea would be o send the notices to staff by hiring a fleet of 25 taxis to do the job. Right fucking clever guys. Right fucking socialist of you. You might also recall Militant Tendency refusing to appoint a race relations officer to the Council, only to eventually cave in to this 'suggestion' when they realised that, in doing so, they could fix the interview process and give another job to a Militant Tendency stooge from London who knew jack shit about race relations, despite several well qualified individuals also applying for the post. This was in 1985 (I think, bear with me I was only 1 year old at the time). The Toxteth Riots had happened in 1981. Sense? Any sense? I doubt it. And don't even get me started on Blunkett and his pacts with this lot, the fucking twat.

* I apologise for the strong language contained in this post. If you knew Militant Tendency, you'll understand why I am using it.

Update: Forthcoming posts shall include "Why I Am A Marxist" (and an explanation of the happy bunnyness of a certain Scrybe, but I thought the Marxist post interesting to mention here)

At least there's one thing labourites and free market Gladstonian liberals such as myself can agree on: Derek Hatton is a complete arse.
