It seems a (un)civil war has erupted over in left-wing blogland, leading to dummies being spat and toys thrown out of prams everywhere.
It seems bleeding heart, intemperate blogger John Band (of 'sexually abused girl probably had it coming because of gang culture' infamy - and I wonder if he ever did eat that hatstore...?) caused a wee bit of a stir by (correctly, in my view) refusing to go along with Amnesty International's latest campaign against 'violence against women', called the 'One In Ten' campaign.
You see, he disagreed with the figures produced by AI and the main thrust of the campaign, and said so, leading to the squalling rage of the 'Never mind the facts, what about the feeeeelllllings!' crowd.
All very amusing reading...
PS: Oh, and on his own blog, John Band also wished that: '..if I induced anyone to give up blogging it’d be Guido or Dizzy or JuliaM or similar…'
There you have it - they don't want debate, or to win hearts and minds over on leftie-blog land. They don't want to show that their ideas and ways of working are better.
They simply want to silence everyone else.
