“Dickhead” and “idiot” are two of the politer epithets I’m inclined to apply to the hapless and unpleasant Milne.Mr. Kgnao.
I first met Milne when we were both students (about 1980) and before he ever got employed by the Guardian. My view of him and his (not-very-crypto) Stalinist politics has remained consistent throughout. Clarification over.
[Stalinist is] an accurate characterization of someone who used to go around brandishing a copy of Denver Walker’s Quite Right Mr Trotsky: Some Trotskyist Myths Debunked; And How Troskyists Today Hamper the Fight for Peace and Socialism.
