Your reporter writing in a personal capacity

What’s going on in the hard left faction? All of a sudden their members are using the prefix “commenting in a personal capacity” on social media. Given that most of them comment in a personal capacity anyway; is this some new form of glasnost? It is most peculiar you must admit, and rather strange. Is this some sort of new individualist politics? Are they sending us a message that they are not in fact a collective?

We know that they a prone to highjacking disputes and campaigns, bathing in reflected glory after the members actually involved have done all the work. They are after all well practiced in situationalism, just watch the paste tables appear at any event, decorated with poorly designed flyers and adorned with hard left newspapers. Anyone who has attended a conference will know it’s difficult to get in the venue because of the endless cascade of useless information that they attempt to thrust into delegates hands. I wonder if they will be handing out leaflets in the future “please read my leaflet, I am handing it to you in a personal capacity”.

Well if anyone has any idea what’s going on, let me know.

Thanks for reading
