Lonely Trot Baiters

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketFollowing on from Jim’s post about the comically dire amicus.ttt website, I took a look for myself. What instantly struck me as ironic, was that the tank(s) who presumably run the thing had set it up at least in part to provide a counterweight to amicus.cc. And in doing so had succeeded in creating something even worse. Which is going some.

Anyhow, I initially decided that the site was evidently an online home for lonely people with Stalin fixations. However, whilst boredly flicking through the various pages of twaddle with which it presents us, I happened across their “discussion forum”. It quickly became clear that when I’d thought it was a home for lonely “people”, I might have been overestimating slightly on the numbers involved. If you look at the forum, you’ll see that it appears to have slightly less members than Michael Meacher’s leadership campaign. Still, of course, if any Shiraz readers would like to tell the owners of amicus.ttt exactly what they think of the whole pile of red-baiting shite, than at least they’ve been kind enough to provide you with a platform… all in the same spirit of comradeship that amicus.ttt was set up to foment, you understand.

    …and now, a *good* (or, at least, promising) blog dealing with the new T&G/Amicus union, ‘Unite’:
    http://yunite.blogspot.com/

    The instigator of the blog is one Robert Hardie of Musselburgh, Scotland, and he doesn’t like ‘Amicusttt’, so he can’t be all bad…

    There are no comments yet, so T&G/Amicus (sorry, ‘Unite’) members may like to contribute.

    Hi Jim, we’re in the same union – hurray!

    I still think it’ll become known as the Tea & Jam, whatever it’s officially called…;-)

    Hell, just as long as it doesn’t become Del Boy and the Fuck Heads…

    No, that’s the Amicus NEC. The strongest argument for the merger from my point of view…:-)
