Labourlist Deputy Editor calls Police "pigs" and praises violent disorder?

One of the Deputy Editors of Derek Draper's, LabourList, Tom Miller appears to have got into a little argument with Tory Bear over his Twitter updates saying the Police killed a protester at the G20. Putting aside the death of this man - its tragic for his immediate family as far as I am concerned - Mr Miller's Facebook pages seem to reveal a deeply held and darker attitude towards the Old Bill.


Yes that's right, Tom Miller, in a picture titled "Mobile Bacon", in which he comments saying that it is "awesome".

This attitude does sort of fly in the face of his public comments that,
[A]s far as I'm concerned, police are extremely valuable, and the record number of them on the beat is one of the achievements of new Labour which I'm happy to sign up to
"Liar, liar, pants on fire"?
Update: Corrected Facebook picture description ebcause I misread it.

The most significant plank of all Labour dogma is hypocrisy.

Not arguing with you in the slightest that Tom Miller is a disagreeable little cnut.

However the album isn't owned (or named) by him, but rather one Mike May, who quite probably is also responsible for the tagging of "Mobile bacon" in the photo.

No dispute however that Comrade Miller thinks it "Awesome."

Misread, fixed now.

The man who died was not a protester, according to the Telegraph.

Dizzy, your headline is just a straight out lie.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Also, headless, it's not the slogan which I was saying was awesome, as I made clear on Mr Cole's blog.

"Dizzy, your headline is just a straight out lie."

Actually I think you'll find its a question not a statement, so no, it's not a lie. I have bugger all to be ashamed of.

Miller 2.0? How fucking pretentious is that?

Miller 2.0 - I didn't say that you were saying that the slogan was awesome. You have however confirmed my initial perception of you as a little cnut.
However, I do take issue with Henry Crun: I think "Miller 2.0" is rather sweet.

Perhaps therefore you are a rather sweet little cnut.

Headless, don't be stupid, I'm a social democrat. you lot are always on about how we love rules and regs, and how we're 'authoritarians', apparently. Rules and regs wouldn't be much good if they weren't enforced, would hey?

Real facts here.

Sorry Dizzy, no cigar.
