Former Trotskyist and Neo-Blairite gets a shellacking from the proto-green/red Corbynite Left.
From The Canary:
Nick Cohen’s foul column proves it’s time to stop giving The Guardian our money or attention
“Cohen is a trollumnist. A resident troll, paid by The Guardian/Observer to spew his bile in the direction of the left. His writing aches with tired clichés of the left which he hasn’t bothered to refresh since Bananarama was current. And those decades of rent-a-rant hysteria have been hard on the man. Like the anti-Dorian Gray, I suspect Cohen’s attic is home to a painting of a smiling boy who becomes more beatific year on year.
His latest rant, though, stretches the bonds of decency beyond breaking point. Entitled Don’t tell me you weren’t warned about Corbyn, it is a finger-pointing lecture to working-class voters to listen to the wisdom of Cohen and co. And by the time he reaches his conclusion, he tires of the pointing and goes for just straight-out flipping the bird to anyone who disagrees with him.
He ends his tirade at Corbyn supporters with this:
In my respectful opinion, your only honourable response will be to stop being a fucking fool by changing your fucking mind.
Reminds me of the sort of wit and wordsmithery you’d find daubed in marker in the school toilets.”
