Farewell Derek. Again.
I had to laugh at this story. Derek Draper is resigning from Labour List because the outcry about the smears discussed between him and McBride are proving to be a distraction. Apparently the Red Rag scandal is taking time away from the inane psychobabble, his part as a pro-government pitbull and a hardcore dedication to empty rhetoric and boring puff pieces. Labour List is still shit, with Draper, without Draper, it makes absolutely no difference. I think many of the committed socialists remaining within the Party are waking up and noticing that the composition of the Party has changed to become 60% idiot, 30% apolitical and 10% socialist. Labour List will remain shit because it draws most of its commentary from the first two groups. I would give a more detailed commentary, but I think I’ve pretty much exhausted myself detailing where and why Labour List has gone wrong, and why the vast majority of its commentators are just plain irritating, when they aren’t outright reactionaries.
