Hetty Douglas’ ‘1 GCSE’ Post Demonstrates Shameful Snob Culture of the Liberal Lefties Who Hate the Working Class

These are the same sort of people who dismiss Brexit voters as gullible misled thickos.

“STATE of you!”, “State of him!”, “State of her!”

Hetty Douglas
Rex Features: Douglas has demonstrated that she has no class at all.

This is a phrase I encounter a lot on social media, especially the first, I notice, as I get older and balder.

And whenever I do, 99 times out of 100 I can be sure of one thing: That the person speaking is one of those sensitive, enlightened, progressive types who claim to hate “personal abuse” and to believe in a “kinder, gentler politics”. Just like their hero Jeremy Corbyn.

The key thing about this insult is it doesn’t advance any kind of intelligent argument. Like the T-shirt that apparently sells like hot cakes at Corbyn rallies, the one that quotes Nye Bevan saying Tories are “lower than vermin”, their purpose is to dismiss people you disagree with as being such hateful scum they don’t even count as humans.

You could detect exactly this ugly mix of preening superiority and poisonous disdain in the comment posted on social media this week by aspiring “artist” Hetty Douglas. Douglas’s photograph, taken in McDonald’s, featured three scaffolders queuing and was captioned: “These guys look like they got 1 GCSE”.

Ha bloody ha. Isn’t she clever?

Why would people hate the trades? I suspect they feel inferior. Few will admit it, but every time they see someone handle a tool or weapon that intimidates them, they experience envy–and disdain.
