    Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
    Friendly old girl of a town
    ‘Neath her tavern light
    On this merry night
    Let us clink and drink one down
    To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
    Salty old queen of the sea

    Makes the place sound rather like a Hamburg tart

    Heard the “millionaire” on radio 4 this morning along with other assrted lefty luuvies. It was grotesque, an elitist cabal of real nutters discussing Sartre. Russian Art (revolutionary) and making sweeping generalizations that suit their leftist view of the world.

    Someone forgot to tell Tariq about Gramsci.

    Guido, do you have a source? (not a snide remark, I’m genuinely interested)

    Communists are vermin, worse than Nazis.

  8. 9

    This is not even communism but the bastardised involuntary version that causes all manner of suffering and poverty.

    Whatever, this is a classic example of Fabianism at work.

    I am a smug hypocrite.

    Upon this statement of truth, you may discuss, or simply close the thread down.

    That is all.

    If global warming is NOT happening, then can somebody explain to me why we have had almost snowless winters where I live in Bulgaria Europe and this November we had the highest temperatures recorded in over 100 years? Or is my thermometer being secretly changed in the middle of the night by Al Gore?
    I would debate ANYONE of you, come on I challenge you.

      Look up and you will see this really big hot thing in the sky…..most of us call it the sun. It has cycles…..sometimes its closer and cooler than it is, and sometimes its farther away and hotter, and sometimes its closer and hotter or closer and cooler. All of these different stages EFFECT the planets….including the one we are currently on. Pretty straight forward. So over time, we have cool eras…..and we have hot eras…….its always been that way and it will always be that way in the future, unless of course that red thing goes supernova, which means we won’t be worrying about global warming or global cooling any longer……..

      Were there any snow free winters in those 100 years?
      Look up the records.

    The Enviromental lobby…like water melons. Green on the outside, red in the middle. Who was the openly commie woman righting in the Grauniad last week saying she was standing as a Green candidate, as it was the party that most closely matched her ideals?

    Communism isn’t exactly known for being environmentally friendly. Some of the biggest pollution disasters occurred in the USSR.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
