Last week, the left-wing blogger Ash Sarkar told Piers Morgan she was ‘literally a communist’ after the pair got into a heated debate over her decision to protest Donald Trump’s visit to the UK when she hadn’t done the same for Barack Obama. Since then, the clip has gone viral and Sarkar – who works for Novara Media – has been rebranded as a liberal champion – with Teen Vogue even chipping in.
Now Novara Media is keen to cash in. The blog has released a new t-shirt to its online shop emblazoned ‘I’m literally a communist’. Only rather than, say, practise communism and dispensing them ‘from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’ – the site appears to have opted to follow free market principles on this occasion. One such T-shirt is yours for £15 – or £20 if you wish to show ‘solidarity’.
They’re letting the market decide…
