Red and Black

I tend to think of those as my campaign colours.

Social Democracy and Christian Democracy, reaching out to the wider Left and to the wider tradition of dissent from Whiggery and Jacobinism, capitalism and imperialism, neoliberalism and neoconservatism.

As well as a reminder of how, even as a light-skinned "Mulatto" (to use the preferred term of the man responsible), both of whose parents had been born with Scottish surnames, I was nevertheless deemed racially unfit to be a district council candidate for Tony Blair's unmourned New Labour Party.

Red and black are also the colours on the star-shaped badges of something else. I might even adopt that symbol, but with the colours reversed.

That should be enough to give dear old Oliver Kamm a seizure, considering how he once reacted to something else.


  1. Oh yes, the name of the late, great British People's Alliance, the only right wing that Labour will have in 12 months' time. That horrible little unelectable racist will have been unemployed and unemployable for 10 and half months by then.

    1. I assume that you do not mean Oliver Kamm, although the cap would fit.

      The creature that you obviously do mean went off years ago to conquer the world. But he is now back in Lanchester with his tail between his legs, there to beg to be allowed back onto the Parish Council next year. I cannot tell you how amusing I find that.

  2. I love, love, love the idea of those black and red badges in reverse and Kammboy going off his trolley because he think he's only just noticed the similarity. Who makes them?
