Christopher Sheil reckons there’s no such thing as a Left Wing Death Beast. It sounds to me like a dubious proposition at best. What about Paul Keating? Admittedly it’s a bit of a stretch describing him as a “left winger” but at least he’s an ALP politician not a Tory. Here’s a site I found dedicated to preserving some of Keating’s more memorable abuse.
Clyde Cameron was also a great hater and a formidable dispenser of abuse if I remember correctly, and he was well to the left of PJK. Readers may like to contribute other nominations for the LWDB Hall of Fame.
Update – Mind you Yobbo has also created an additional category: SLWE (Snide Left-Wing Elitist). Frankly, however, I don’t understand how anyone could imagine that elitism is confined to the left. The last word here should certainly go to PJK (talking to former ALP politician Diamond Jim McClelland): “Just because you swallowed a fucking dictionary when you were about 15 doesn’t give you the right to pour a bucket of shit over the rest of us.”
