the absurdity of “privilege politics” and the biggest privilege of all

20 Dec

you have got to wonder what is going on when somebody who was educated in one of the country’s most prestigious schools and went straight from that into oxford university, who is a celebrity, regularly appears as a columnist in the new statesman and the guardian and regularly appears on newsnight and similar programmes feels that they can attack people who do not have that economic and social capital that they do and say that they are “privileged”.

you do not have to have read das kapital or indeed any left wing text or be versed at all in left wing politics to conclude that this is completely ridiculous.
