Heather has (somehow!) been nominated for yet another elected Labour role, this time NEC member.

I can understand Heather insisting (and Mumsnet agreeing) to delete threads on the claim that they are libellous, because the UK libel laws have a chilling effect on speech - even though it's hard to see a libel suit forthcoming from such a ridiculous person.

It's really that the Labour party has trans blinkers on, so the normal process of reviewing and assessing the credibility of individuals seems to have broken down.

"*I had no idea they were up there until a Labour activist claimed they learnt it all on mumsnet as well as girl****.*"

What or where is 'girl****'?

TinyRick Mon 30-Apr-18 15:21:20

Urgh bold fail

TinyRick Mon 30-Apr-18 15:23:33

Nevermind.

Just read an earlier tweet by Peto, worked it out.

LangCleg Mon 30-Apr-18 15:24:13

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.

It's all so dull and predictable.

Well quite!

No change there then.

What is the 'anonymity order' thing? How does that work? Surely if you know such a thing exists, it is pointless?

TRAs seem to subscribe to the axiom "tell a lie often enough and people will believe it".

I had no idea they were up there until a Labour activist claimed they learnt it all on mumsnet as well as girl**.

There will be consequences to anonymous account breaking a victim anonymity Order.

Can someone please translate these two sentences into English for me? Thank you!

Ive no idea hedge

But im fed up with people LYING about that stupid section 28

TerfinUSA Mon 30-Apr-18 15:43:02

girl** is 'girldick', a reference to Kiwi Farms' joke name for their website host. (Kiwi Farms is a discussion board about internet weirdos basically, and a high % are transgender, so they came out with that as a joke name for their host.)

Kiwi Farms hosts a page on Heather Peto, hence the upset. And they don't delete anything.

I'm not a fan of these threads saying "look at this, transwoman X is saying bad things". I don't think they add much to the debate and mainly just provide ammunition for attacks against MN on social media.

Thank you, TerfinUSA. The whole reference went right over my head, so I appreciate the explanation.

KatherinaMinola Mon 30-Apr-18 16:33:24

What, my fairly mild comment got deleted?! Lawyers must have been in touch...

LangCleg Mon 30-Apr-18 16:41:46

I'm honestly past caring what the Labour Party does or what its representatives do. The party is rife with internal division, ignores misogyny, and its activists are becoming increasingly authoritarian.

I'm glad I left.
