Billy Bragg! As if his beige cod-folk droning isn't bad enough I've just been listening to Barking's finest on the radio and amongst the many gems of wisdom the skateboarder worrying bastard treated us to were these;

1. British foreign policy has no effect on migration to the UK, it's because they can use their mobile phones see what wonderful freedom we enjoy.

2. We need to make Labour the party of entrepreneurship.

Honestly, this scumbag needs his head kicked in. We should get a mob together, kick him almost to death and then get Steven to hang him with goose gizards left over from last nights admin dinner soirée!

"The program is written by the class in action"
"Workers themselves...!" (Here meaning the undifferentiated mass of people which Marx would have called simply 'labor power', and their 'unmoulded' opinions)
"Period of low struggle"
"Organic Leaders"
"Self-struggle; self-management; etc."
"Social Democratic" (when they mean liberal)
"Too much theory/history/debate"

"Would you like a copy of (insert trot paper)"

I was at a demo against a racist politician the other night, it's pouring rain, we've just been kettled by 50 cops, people had been wounded, yet a few of them still took the time to flog their fucken newspapers
