Only The Disgusting Daily Mail Could Make Me Sympathise With Harriet Harman.

Harriet Harman MP

Harriet Harman and her colleagues have been traduced and defamed by the Daily Mail in the most appalling, malicious and disgusting fashion.

There is probably no politician with whom I more profoundly disagree and who irritates me more than Ms Harman. In this instance though, having been smeared myself in similar fashion, I give her my unqualified support. It is a timely coincidence that the vile Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) was used in the latest smear attack on me by Chris Bovey and his gang of Twitter trolls.

Snide, cheap, so-called journalists like Andrew Pierce are beneath contempt. People like him (and there are many more amidst the semi-literate underclass of bloggers) resort to such tactics because they are incapable of decent criticism of those they oppose. Instead they seek to repress free speech and argue for guilt by association. It is what the Daily Mail thrives on. It is what demeans British politics, perhaps more than anything else.

The result is that everyone; journalist, blogger, Daily Mail hack, even the chap leaning against the bar in his local, is cautious of expressing views on controversial subjects, just in case the thought police pounce on them. It is the curse of political correctness and one thing is certain – it is wrong!

Quite clearly, to any decent, reasonably knowledgeable person, in the 1970s the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) was fighting against the censorship and repression personified in Mary Whitehouse. It is no surprise to me that PIE should have sought to associate itself with the campaign for liberty. It is absolutely right that the NCCL and Ms Harman, however much they rightly condemn PIE’s aims, should defend its right to argue its case.

Those who use smear and innuendo in an effort to implicate others in such vile behaviour are as are as guilty as the abusers they complain of. I wish that the Daily Mail should be made to pay very dearly for its abuse. Andrew Pierce should retreat to the gutter where he belongs alongside the paedophiles whose morality he matches.

  1. All these politicians are lawyers? Why aren’t they suing?
    On the flip side the DM also employs lawyers to check stories and if these are lies then they know they are taking a risk.
