    If we do historical labour figures I might have to switch to Tony Benn when I start reading his diaries. Although as mentioned I am rather taken with this current one
    Tony Benn you say? I just became a fan of you

    Read the establishment, and now reading chavs, which is his first book yeah.

    As for Dennis Skinner, the Beast of Bolsover would be a fine avatar. And I'll certainly check out that Orwell book, great fan of Orwell.

    As for Stalin, he is an interesting polticial figure, not in that I agree with his ideas, but for that period in history in general, lots happening, and it was all so recent really
    Ahh, indeed he is interesting. A great figure not to be underestimated though, he gains my respect but not my admiration.

    Seems just saying the name Tony Benn earns you friends. And yeah Stalin, like others of the time are hugely interesting characters, always wished I could have studied the cold war era at school

    Dennis is great - he gets to cameron with many no answers where Cameron hurls abuse at him. This is my personal favourite from Dennis though

    That is a great clip, I'd also suggest his speech in the Commons about Tony Benn just after Benn's death is rather good, although more as a speech about Benn than an attack on the tories or anyone else

    Watched that Benn speech a few times now, great speech, gutted I never got to see him speak in person.

    As for the Dennie Royal Mail one, love that one since he first said it

    edit: also this reply to Mark Reckless by Dennis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSoP4VNIFE8

    That's very true - like I said, he encouraged us (and a generation of British socialists) and that's as good an enduring a legacy as any.

    I'll have to read them.

    Chavs is brilliant, I think it was his first book. The establishment is another brilliant book, no doubt you've heard of it/read it.

    If you're into that sort of thing, I'd highly recommend Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell, probably my favourite book.

    At the moment I'm currently reading a book called Young Stalin, not that I'm a Stalinist, I'm the opposite actually. But it's a good book.
    Owen Jones is somebody i hate politically with a passion. He's incredibly condescending and pretentious in almost all his interviews, he's like Sturgeon when she talks about how socially aware Scotland is. Irritating.

    I wouldn't bother. Apparently Rakas can't bring himself to acknowledge my gender that because on the right, respect for the individual and support for their freedoms doesn't extend to those they don't like, quelle surprise

    ... So I'm now being hit on by a taken, definitely not horny, gay/bi/pan guy? This is new Sounds like someone had a very happy birthday though!
    I've no issue with you as a person, i'm just not convinced i should pander to those who are misgendered in their mind. At least while they still have a penis.
