Looks like Toasty hasn't deleted those tweets, and Sarkar said she'd sue if they weren't gone by morning. Should be an interesting story to follow. Incidentally the Novara Living Wage header on her profile seems a bit misjudged now. If you can afford libel lawyers at the drop of a hat I'm not sure you should be asking your viewers to pay your wages.

In the twitter thread you linked there are people offering to crowdfund Ash.

Bit of an incredible and unnecessary leap this isn't it.  Ask yourself why you feel compelled to imply the following moronic factors that would be required for your criticism to be valid.

1. She can afford libel lawyers at the drop of a hat.
2. She should work for free
3. All of money donated to Novara goes to her
4. Asking the viewers of your content to pay your wages directly or indirectly is the whole of the media industry in one way or another.
5. If she did have money accrued from her work and could afford a libel lawyer at the drop of a hat why would this not be an acceptable use of her "earned" money
6. Only rich people not reliant on donations for their wage should have access to libel lawyers.

I just want to know why? Why do you do it?

Not many of those points are relevant to what I said at all. I didn't imply 2, 3, 5 or 6. I did imply 1, so if she crowdfunds because she genuinely can't afford it, sure, I was wrong.  I'd rather not bog down the thread on an argument from a throwaway comment really though.

I actually really do wanna get bogged down in this. So the two of these things are irreconcilable, yes?:

a) Asking for the consumers of your product to provide monetary compensation for your labour.

AND

b) Being able to afford libel lawyers. (At the drop of a hat, no less!)


Please elaborate.

Haha Tracy Ann Oceanman has me pre-emptively blocked on Twitter, yassssssssssssssss

I love being blocked by arseheads. I tried to get Trump to block me for a while but then got scared that I might get deported.

Mmm.

I don't disagree with that.

I'm not sure it's enough to ensure that procedure meets the other standards we might want of it. That it can generate the 'Keith Vaz cleared him for political purposes' story so readily is a problem in itself - whatever you might think of the outcome.

Come now, you're just exaggerating for effect.  One of the marvellous things about Zetetic is his ability, when the wind gets up his tail, to tickle almost anyone's fancy and them to hardly know or care but just to lie there, letting him, in full public view.

Just reading Sarkar's twitter stream to see more of the TAO spat and it seems Labour have a new broadcast out: https://twitter.com/AyoCaesar/status/1145705387779379200

Sadly, the guy that made it has died: https://twitter.com/EL4JC/status/1145700248246980608

That is sad. Seemed like a decent man.

On the other hand, this Ooberman woman is an utter cunt. Check out this thread (dunno if I've linked properly). She's fucking horrible.

Yes, loved that film and am very sorry to hear the maker's sadly died.

That Tracy woman comes across as a horrid cunt, makes me glad I don't go to twitter, I didn't even know she was alive until I visited that place.  Now I have to find a way of living with that new knowledge.  Challenging stuff.

I always thought ninnies were exclusively male.  Every day I am learning the new shit.

Anyway, she's not a ninny, not at all, ninnies are foolish and flighty.  She is like that nasty one off of Countdown, I'm thinking.  Not very nice at all.

That bit where she 'accidentally' copies in The Guardian's editor really shows her up as a nasty fucking piece of work. The journalist guy seemed to be quite decent, telling people not to pile on, but she's just fucking vile.

Yeah, weird how community art doesn't tend to sing the praises of austerity, and people expressing themselves creatively don't tend to side with structures that exist entirely to shut them down.  So strange.

Quite why a D List actress (and prominent anti-Corbyn campaigner) would have the personal telephone number of the Guardian's editor is a real mystery to me.
