According to a blogger on Harry’s Place, the mainstream left is: “meant to be progressive, stand for universal principles of human and civil rights, and be democrats.”
Now, I know it’s funny when someone at HP claims to be part of the mainstream left, but put that aside for a moment. It’s more amusing that for a blog so concerned with human rights and all that jazz, they’ve published two separate editorials supporting the BBC boycott of the DEC Gaza appeal. Now that’s what you call a committment to universal values of human rights!
In other scraping the barrel news, Osama Saeed is an observant Muslim shock! Clearly a menace to society!
