George Orwell the snitch and agent of British imperialism is the idol of
this Liberal/Socialist.  Obviously this "Liberal/Socialism" is Rodwell's
socialism too, and it expresses well the ideology of the aristocracy of
labour.  The chauvinistic, pro-imperialist, reactionary and anti-Marxist
ideology of the "labour lieutenants of capital", the British "debutantes"
and the barons of the reactionary press and media.   Everyone is entitle to
their idols and their demons.

It is very good that these gentlemen expose themselves as CLASS ENEMY of the
proletariat and of ALL PROGRESSIVES.  For these fellows to dennounce those
who, not subscribing to communism, may have a good word for REAL, CONCRETE
socialism and the people's struggles in the here and now, and to make lists
of these intellectuals, blackball them and deliver them to the imperialist
secret services and to the barons of the press is fine and dandy and the
"best thing for socialism".

In fact is good that these people present the dychotomy:  Either Orwell or
Stalin.  I am for Stalin and the proletariat. They are for Orwell and
British imperialism and its secret services.  They are ideed the best thing
that ever happen to socialism by negative example!
