There was podcast on the House of Comments webpage on Thursday the 18th of March featuring, apart from the two resident broadcasters, Old Holborn and Emma Burnell, to whom Old Holborn comes out with the classic line to describe her as, “some fat ecoloon Labourlist man hating lezzer whom he’s never heard of.” I must agree with OH on this one, (although we both should await a tongue lashing from Harriet ‘Harpic’ Harman and should gird our loins.) She’s [Burnell] a harridan who would like to see the legalisation on “hard drugs” repealed whilst championing Labours obnoxious smoking ban law as it “helped her stop smoking.” WTF? So we ALL have to suffer because she can’t harness any self control?
Here is her bio on her own webpage, Scarlet Standard:
Emma Burnell is a socialist, feminist, environmentalist and proud long-standing Labour member.
Emma can occasionally be found relaxing over a glass or several of wine and singing songs of the old left. Emma is neither New nor Old Labour but a Heath-Robinson contraption of ideas from the best of both and all areas of the progressive movement.
Emma has her roots in the Fabian Society.
Here, Old Holborn, Emma Burnell, Mark Thomson of Mark Reckons and Stuart Sharpe of Sharpes Opinions talk about OH’s blogosphere “collection Tin” which raised over £9000 for the release of Nick Hogan, smoking ban hero.
This is an edited version but the whole podcast can be downloaded from the House of Comments website.
