Hehehe. This is no surprise to me. I’ve never liked him. And his films are utterly artless poverty porn tourism. Made for white Guardian readers, who should give a tenner to a food bank, rather than “empathise” with the working classes and give money to this multi millionaire. Lots of millionaires on the hard left. 🤔
Pretty dickish comment from him, but I can’t agree on your summation of his body of work. I, Daniel Blake might be poverty porn to you, but it’s descriptive of daily life for a too large number of people near me.
I wouldn't like to be judged today on my views from decades ago. I try to afford others the same courtesy.
I've told racist jokes as a teen but didn't hold racist views. I've questioned homosexuality as a young man and now I never question it. I've said things to people I regretted later. I didn't say things to others that I wish I had.
I'm more inclined to be offended by a hack seeking out decades old comments.
Ah, so no dissing of poisonous antisemite Ken. Ok. 😔 I personally don’t think his views have actually changed a jot. And this was more about how the left Movement really feels about women. They aren’t interested. They are Fairweather allies.
