Amicus ice-pick lumpens

April 28, 2007 at 11:39 pm (Jim D, left)

This blog has, in the past (scroll down to “fuckwit c.c.“), been very critical of the ‘amicus c.c’ website, and its apolitical, Private Eye-style gossip (usually inaccurate) about internal Amicus affairs and – even worse- about the  T&G, where Beaumont gets everything wrong. However, it has been drawn to our attention that there is a much worse Amicus website: this lumpen, Stalinist affair is the brain-child of Amicus Assistant General Secretary Les Bayliss – evidently a nasty piece of work. Within the new union, the T&G Broad Left (where left-reformists, serious Trotskyists and  thinking ex-Stalinists co-exist) is clearly going to have to take on Mr Bayliss and his lumpen friends, and teach them a few lessons in proletarian democracy.

Hat-tip: Ian of the T&G

    If he reads this, you’ll have an interesting time at the first joint broad left of the new union. Website is fucking shit though. And he sounds like a right twat.

    Funnily enough, he actually slags off that rare phenomenon, an SWP’er for whose political reputation I have some respect: Jerry Hicks.

    Volty”website is fucking shit though”

    True but its top dollar compared to the one run by their counterparts in UNISON!
    Now that is fucking shite!

    What, the one owned by that CPBML’er who looks like a cross between Billy Mitchell and Albert Steptoe? You have a point, me dear lol!

    I thought the only Stalinoids that are still alive are all members of the SWP these days? Their front organisation Respect, of course, has as their leader just such a specimen. The Fat Orange Napolean Bonaparte of Bethnal Green.

    Gameboy Hearts Galloway.

  6. Will said,

    Damn – I forgot to mention that Galloway is also an ignorant sexist scumbag as well. Of course his SWP buddies overlook this fact — I mean why not? — they manage to overlook the fascism of their new Islamist friends so may as well give Galloway a pass on that as well.

    Also volty at least you know who runs your one Les – ours is too cowardly to do it in his own name so has a complete false identity with picture an all ;)

    You mean http://scandalfax.blogspot.com/? Vile.

    Dunno about that MJ. It looks like a can of pedigree Chum vomited across the screen–especially with those Google ads breaking up the page.

  9. marshajane said,

    Yeah Hakmao that’s the one and Vile sums it up :) (although I could think of quite a lot else to call it! ;p)

    Is that picture actually of him? He doesn’t half look a gimp. And who’s the other one?

    I’d heard that Pedigree Chum was considered a delicacy in CPBML culture. Might be untrue of course.

    Wow, these people are certainly something else. I had no idea these blogs even existed. It’s hardly new or original. For years the US trade unions had success in driving out their best members through red-baiting and witch hunting. Oddly enough it’s precisely the people that they are attacking who do a lot of hard ground work for the trade unions while these people apparently either spend their days bitching about “trot conspiracies” or fucking over and selling out their members. I really wouldn’t give them any attention. Things like this thrive on people giving them the time of day…..

    Na its a complete fake identity.

    TWP “I really wouldn’t give them any attention. Things like this thrive on people giving them the time of day…..”

    Exactly! which is why we ignore them :)

    What is also bizarre is that the right in the unions have created an entirley fictitious category of “trot” which includes almost anyone who opposes “partnership” and business unionism.

    I am sure in some eyes even paul Kenny is a trot

  15. voltairespriest said,

    Andy;

    Quite right. Actually I’ll bet our Marsha was a little surprised to be labelled a “trot”… :D

  16. voltaires_priest said,

    There again it was by the fuckheads who run that “Scandaltwat” site, or whatever it’s called.

    Volty: “I’ll bet our Marsha was a little surprised at being labelled a trot”

    Ha ;) I’m quite used to it in Unison circles now xx

    Woe is me not accepted by the centre right twats and unison bureacrats cos I’m a ‘trot’ and not accepted as a trot by the trots ;)

    Oh well I don’t mind being stuck in the middle – at least I know my politics are right (left) ;)

    Not sure http://scandalfax.blogspot.com/ is CPBM-L… he’s vocally anti-BNP, whereas Birch and co always used to affect a rather doctrinaire and lofty position, claiming that threat of fascism came from corporate state, etc, rather than BNP (or NF/BM as was)
