Seumas Milne and the Wrath of the New McCarthyites

My latest column for Sputnik International- on the smearing of Seumas Milne.

The news that Seumas Milne, anti-war journalist and Guardian columnist, has been appointed the new Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's Executive Director of Strategy and Communications has caused uproar among Britain's McCarthyite pro-imperialist faux-left.
Milne, we're told is a "terrorism apologist", a "Stalinist" an "extremist", ''apologist for dictators", "apologist for murderous dictators", "Kremlin/Putin apologist" and "facism (sic) apologist"....

You can read the whole piece here.

At least I now know what a McCarthyite is!!! But seriously all the best to Seumas Milne I'm sure he'll do very well, the good thing is people are starting to discern when it comes to quality reporting and communication, he may not reach the dizzy heights of hosting an American chat show but stick to having integrity and telling the truth and that has greater rewards in my book
