Like all George Monbiot article I have read I felt a mixture of Anger, fear, upset, and 3/4 of the way through whilst engrossed I thought that they won't get away with it now that it has been reported.

I finished it and thought to myself It's only George Monbiot nothing will change' and focused on something else trivial.

Well, it does at least explain Spiked. Why are they such contrary twats? Because they’re being paid well by greedy billionaires to do so.

Jacob_Richter - 10 Dec 2018 10:54:12 (#3 of 41)

But also, because they mean it. They have been contrary twats for decades before any right-wing billionaires threw a shed full of cash in their direction and they would come up with this stuff even if no-one paid them.

Not so sure that they'd come up with exactly that stuff without receiving the bribe.

The Russian troll knows what he's talking about here, clearly.

chacqueschirac - 10 Dec 2018 11:08:53 (#6 of 41)

Why don't you just fuck yourself, bimbo?

Been wondering what to post on here because the link is worth taking in.

Not much to say about it though.

Its time our security services started contributing towards our security.

Are Spiked Tankies or Trots, Jacob?

moto748 - 10 Dec 2018 12:54:03 (#9 of 41)

Ooh, let's have another three or four pages of that!

What japes!!

Arjuna - 10 Dec 2018 12:57:02 (#10 of 41)

More Trolls than Trots.

darkhorse - 10 Dec 2018 12:57:27 (#11 of 41)

It says in the article they are former Trots. Question answered. So no need to derail.

Arjuna - 10 Dec 2018 13:23:51 (#12 of 41)

that sort of left wing factionalism does kinda explain their origins, especially their habit of establishing contrary positions, they were the sort that actually enjoyed internicine squabbles and turned them into an art form.

TinyMcOtter - 10 Dec 2018 13:43:11 (#13 of 41)

Former Revolutionary Communist party oddballs. They were always kind of the swivel-eyed loons of the swivel-eyed loony factions. Horrible elitist arseholes

HoHoHoff - 10 Dec 2018 13:46:04 (#14 of 41)

Ahem, the Loony Swivel-Eyed Faction, thank you very much.

Rendered - 10 Dec 2018 13:51:13 (#15 of 41)

Having never read Spiked, I am appalled at the Cock brothers giving them money.

moto748 - 10 Dec 2018 13:53:54 (#16 of 41)

Neither have I , Is it like the International Times?

Jacob_Richter - 10 Dec 2018 13:54:08 (#17 of 41)

Are Spiked Tankies or Trots, Jacob?

Neither, my little friend, neither. Nor were they ever either - something Monbiot gets wrong but which isn't important.

sqeezy - 10 Dec 2018 15:53:41 (#18 of 41)

Weren't they neither Moscow nor Washington? That seems to have gone out the window.

TommyDCMBR8 - 10 Dec 2018 16:00:39 (#19 of 41)

They were always kind of the swivel-eyed loons of the swivel-eyed loony factions.

LM was one of the better publications.

sqeezy - 10 Dec 2018 16:17:46 (#20 of 41)

It was certainly well funded. But not apparently to the extent of getting their content legalled before publication.
