Melanie Phillips joins Indymedia

Well that's how it looks to me anyway.

After an introduction from Peter Tatchell, Melanie Phillips now writes for Indymedia. According to her first report a gay group was attacked by every non-gay person and group, except me and the people I was with, at a rally for Palestine on Saturday May, 15. Normally the homophobic Phillips wouldn't worry about the fate, real or imagined, of a gay group but Melanie will do anything to help the Zionist cause and embarrass Arabs, Muslims and the left. Here's an extract from her article:

"As soon as they arrived in Trafalgar Square to join the demonstration, the gay protesters were surrounded by an angry, screaming mob of Islamic fundamentalists, Anglican clergymen, members of the Socialist Workers Party, the Stop the War Coalition, and officials from the protest organisers, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC). They variously attacked the gay activists as “racists”, “Zionists”, “CIA and MI5 agents”, “supporters of the Sharon government” and “dividing the Free Palestine movement”.

Owing to her renowned modesty she didn't actually put her name to the article but by accusing groups who never act together of, er, acting together she left her characteristic hallmark: bullshit.
