Quote of the day 5th August 2016

"'Let’s all get together and have a good hate,' is how George Orwell mocked the far Left of his own generation. He’d have had Momentum’s number.

To give a telling, because trivial, example, when a sweet-natured little girl on Channel 4’s Child Genius on Tuesday night chose Margaret Thatcher as her special subject, the Corbynistas on Twitter exploded, calling her unprintable names, hoping that her parents would be involved in a traffic accident, and worse.

If that is how they respond to a nine-year-old child, we should hardly be surprised by the tone they take with the people they regard as Blairite traitors."

(Dan Hannan MEP in his Conservative Home article here on the travails of the Labour party)
