I do get pretty tired of journalists making blatant accusations then whining that they are only repeating what they've heard when called on it.

I wish Lynch had answered, yes, I am a Marxist, so what? when asked though. Still, it's been most uplifting seeing him take interviewer after interviewer apart.

I put this in the FAT thread on politics but it can go here too.

Even though he's said he isn't?

Yes, I wish he was.

It may have taken him a bit by surprise as an opening line

Mick should have replied "are you a shoplifter"

FleurDuMal - 22 Jun 2022 12:25:18 (#8 of 239)

Hah!

SharkPatoo - 22 Jun 2022 12:31:41 (#9 of 239)

I'd pay good money to watch that.

Lawlsie - 22 Jun 2022 12:37:23 (#10 of 239)

Oh I wish he had! I'd entirely forgotten about that.

Brilliant that Lynch used both interviews to make the important point about the government's role in creating this problem

mingmong - 22 Jun 2022 12:39:36 (#12 of 239)

Its the thing the estbalishment (including the media) fear the most

being mocked.

Lawlsie - 22 Jun 2022 12:45:35 (#13 of 239)

All men fear being mocked. Including the women.

mingmong - 22 Jun 2022 12:46:37 (#14 of 239)

Its so much more potent than anger

SharkPatoo - 22 Jun 2022 12:47:49 (#15 of 239)

I like the way he's so cool and they just get more and more comically angry because he's not playing the game.

It so is. Humour is often the best weapon of the oppressed.

I like the way he's so cool and they just get more and more comically angry because he's not playing the game.

Absolutely this. Let them get rattled while he sticks to the same story. He's an elected representative representing his members. He's doing his job. And doing a fine job too.

Yes - he's not blaming the train companies, he makes common cause with them

Lawlsie - 22 Jun 2022 12:49:43 (#18 of 239)

Yup! Great tactic. And industrial disputes are all about tactics.

The Spectator wades in...

In a somewhat surprising fashion...
