Corin Redgrave 1939-2010

I was sorry to read about the death of Corin Redgrave today. The obituaries will note that he was the scion of an important thespian family and that along with his sister Vanessa he was a leading member of the Workers' Revolutionary Party. I will remember him as a valiant defender of the Roma and Traveller community and thank God for what he did to fight oppression and prejudice.

Requiescat in Pace.

Not to mention a supporter and apologist for terrorism, alleged rapists and anti-democracy movements the world over.

Excuse me if I don't join you in the tearful blessings upon the old Stalinist.

Don't know if I'd call Corin Redgrave a Stalinist. You've been reading Jim Denham, haven't you?

No, I haven't been scouring James’ incandescent nocturnal explosions, but rather the unusually reasoned Oliver Kamm: http://tinyurl.com/ybrxrot

Has Oliver Kampf ever passed by a communist's grave without feeling the urge to dance on it? One recalls him being particularly beastly about poor old Monty Johnstone - we all had our differences with Monty from time to time, but he was a thoroughly decent bloke.
