On George Galloway’s Viva Palestina campaign website sits an article by Yvonne Ridley – a leading figure in several of Galloway’s campaigns and his RESPECT venture:
Writing of Hazel Blears, the charming Ridley says:
Her Westminster life began to take off when she joined a group of largely other dodgy-looking boilers who were given the unlikely soubriquet of Blair’s Babes.
Some of my decidedly politically incorrect mates in the media called them Blair’s Brown Baggers, but let’s not go down that road.
There are some easy and cheap retorts that some of my decidely politically incorrect mates could make about Ridley who for some reason has voluntarily chosen to cover part of herself up but, let’s not go down that road.
Seriously, is this what the ‘radical left’ in the UK now trades in? Comments about ‘Boilers’ and ‘Brown Baggers?’
