    I vacillate between liking Owen Jones and finding him laughable but this is a bit of an own goal I think.

    I opened the thread on Reddit expecting to hear something re tactical voting and/or a 'progressive alliance' - instead I got a highly paid journalist, writer and one of the most visible Labour supporters in the 'new media' asking for money to print Labour leaflets.
    Bizarre...

    With that said - Labour are actually doing the best campaigning job in my area.
    Received an invite to a 'Finance Fair' from my local Labour MP yesterday.
    I'm going to go along.

    No leaflets etc from any other party yet although this is a 'safe' Labour seat and she's Ed Balls' chum - which, given what happened to him (ousted by a Tory) is probably why.

    You sure about that? Or are you referring to being highly paid in relative terms to other journalists?

    No I'm talking generally - he's a columnist for both the Guardian and the New Statesman and has written several best sellers including the phenomenally successful 'Chavs'.
    He's definitely on a decent wage.

    Ah yeah forgot about the books as well. But I wouldn't say a columnist for those publications is that 'high paid' these days though

    I dunno - if you're a 'celebrity' journo then I think it's still pretty lucrative.

    I mean good for him obviously - my point more so was that as popular as Owen J is, that video kind of represents the myopia of Labour (and other parties) in the sense that a lot of the traditional Labour voting blocks left because a) they feel like all politicians are on the take and b) they're out of touch with 'normal' people so, with that in mind, I'm not sure it's that good of an idea for someone from the (urgh) 'metropolitan liberal elite' to be begging for money to fund the party of the poor if that makes sense.
