Bella: "Oh, Sunny, I was sure it was only a matter of time before you popped up equating libertarians with racists because you can apply the word 'violent' to both." I don't think libertarians are 'violent' - and as I said on my own blog I think there are entirely sensible libertarians out there. As you know, Rumbold, who writes at PP is also a libertarian. He's the sanest and among the nicest guys I know. He certainly does not go around calling for people's deaths. So my point still stands - though thanks for trying to insinuate I'm playing the race card - that there is a reason why people who write up violent fantasies are excluded from national debates. I'm now denied the opportunity to link to the post where he wrote about Polly Toynbee which involved sex, and more. Your husband isn't particularly intelligent. I pointed out over at PP that he didn't even seem to understand libertarianism properly a few years ago. He is just a windbag who provided entertainment. Great. But there's a reason why we demand higher standards of people who are supposed to represent us in public office.

What Paul and Charlie (#1) said. I think this is a terrible example of 'media repression'. Is it not legitimate to ask why should voters take someone seriously who wishes death on his political opponents? Otherwise, why not have the goons from the BNP or National Front on there regularly inciting violence? They could represent the voices of the 'silent majority'.

Oh god, I've never disagreed with a Chris Dillow post so much. Will write a response later, but just to point out - it's always unwise to rely on the Daily Mail for stories about Muslims. If you read further down you'll see its a policy that also affects Christians, home-schoolers etc. The Daily Mail just picked up on the Muslims bit as if they were being exclusively favoured. They're not.

I find it amusing Tim Montgomerie is casting us as 'immature'. I didn't realise you'd be smarting over the mass-resignations we engineered over Politics Home for so long Tim :) LibCon isn't any more worse or partisan than most right-wing blogs in that we vociferously attack right-wing narratives and personalities. It's funny that ConHome plays up people like Guido Fawkes and Iain Dale, who aren't any less 'immature' by any measure, but applies different standards in that case. I'd say you're quite capable of dishing out criticism and very unable to take it. But then I never was looking for approval from the right in whether LC would be a success or not. Our growing popularity speaks for itself. Sunny Hundal
