Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

More blah, blah, blah, pls!

It's pencil not paint.

I did a nice self portrait the other day. I look exactly like my mother. Oscar Wilde was wrong. 
good to know.  I am working on flowers and birds in pastels.

on parsimony of words - I could have written a parody of a struggle session, but that is only funny if people understood what that was and saw it as a parody. People are much too quick to think what they read here (or anywhere else) is "True."

We could, however, start a group-written play in the OT.  Working Title: Struggle Session. He he.

It brings together various themes: the virus, confinement, political interrogations, class and cultural warfare, philosophy, promiscuity (for some), celibacy (for others), and quant finance.

and if that sounds really awful and  a certain failure - it is.

I like it already.  :  )

I think posho leftists have a pathological desire to be liked. They suspect they are not very likable and their reaction is to strenuously virtue signal. Probably starts at their private schools where being a team player is more important than individualism.

I bet there aren't many posho leftists who are Millwall fans. ("Nobody likes us, we don't care.") 
I guess being deemed separate and different from a gang of drunken hooligans should really hurt. Oddly, not so much...
Some people (posho leftists) would like to be so deemed. Personally I wouldn't care. 

Maybe any posho leftists could help also with the following questions. Do you have to work on that unsmiling victim look?

Are you born with it? Is it part of the signalling? Why don't the left smile? 
Seems KS attended a grammmar school.

I don't think he does pantomine and buffoonery.

Not all of them vote "Socialist"

To some extent, Cummings can be seen as a typical Oxford-educated Tory toff. But although he was privately educated, still a fundamental fault line in British society, you won’t find him posing in toff-tastic Oxford Bullingdon Club photographs like Johnson and former Tory prime minister David Cameron.

A common feature of many right-wing university clubs is destroying furniture. In many cases, the uni judo club had to be brought in to control such rowdyism, which it executed with gusto.

And the more right-wing the more pleasure in breaking things. Because daddy pays the bill.
