Who is being patronising to them? All I did was point out to Bucks that his salt of the earth statements are incorrect. Nobody on here has ever claimed that ALL working class people are racists or that ALL people who voted Brexit are racists.
Why, because both statements are obviously not true.
The problem is that Leave voters will assume they’re being referred to as such when the left make blanket statements of how Leave and Conservative voters are driven by racism. It’s this what drives impressions of the left being out of touch, especially when the voter demographic of Labour has changed and many of the activists are from a more middle class background. Nothing wrong with that, but it means it’s imperative that Labour stand on the side of the workers.
Anyway, what are you doing disagreeing with me? Don’t you know that we’re inseparable mates, part of a shadowy cabal to oppose everything Bucks stands for, as part of a Trotskyite centre (or is that Gurnelistaite centre?)? I can well see Gurnelista as Trotsky, NI as Zinoviev, DeereyMe as Kamenev, yourself as Bukharin and myself as the more right wing Rykov in these fiendish plots.
