Quote of the Day

Owen Jones pays tribute to the intellectual ascendancy of the right…

“In this country, the Institute of Economic Affairs was founded in 1955; the Centre for Policy Studies in 1974; the Adam Smith Institute in 1977. They not only laid the ideological foundations for privatisation, the stripping of trade union power and the slashing of taxes on the rich and corporate interests, but helped shift the terms of political debate. The left has been on the defensive and in intellectual retreat ever since.”

    Owen Jones. The skid mark in the toilet bowl of “journalism.”

    “slashing of taxes on the rich ”

    Along with everyone else. Is Owen one of these people who want high taxes on everyone simply so he cans say there are high taxes?

    Owen Jones is a twat says:

    +1

    When I started work in 1986, earning £4 per hour (pints of beer in pubs cost 98p!), I’m pretty sure I was paying basic rate 27% income tax, with NI on top.

    Yes when the options were either draw a charcoal sketch of your latest kill on some cave wall, or sit idly around discuss lefty ideology (until you got your skull cracked for not pulling your weight)

    He’d rather that the poor remain poor than the rich get richer

    Jones really is a complete knob-jockey. His grip on the realities of life is, at best, tenuous.

    I never listen to anything the misguided and oh so self righteous little tit Jones says. Still spouting 16 year old political ideas. No areas of grey in his thinking and the definate belief the world would be so much better under any kind of socialism, despite the real world evidence to the contrary.

    Socialism is sooo last year says:

    I see that Owen, and his partner in ‘Socialist Tennis’, Mehdi Hasan, haven’t been in the media for quite a while. 2 pieces of shit I’d like to ask “how have we arrived at the Economic state that we’re in?”, and, “What are your ‘Idea’s’ as to get rid of it without curtailing general services?”…

    BTW, Economics is ‘Financial Astrology’, except that Economist’s neither ‘Know the Stars’, or ‘Astrology’. Now potter-off and whiter-on about Keynes or Money Supply or some other BS.

    BTW, what’s our National Debt now? According to the TPA it’s £1,394,507,500,000. – Good innit.

    As always the left and little f-tards like sh*t stain Jones, are experts in laying out plans on who they would clobber with tax rises and who would be ‘punished’ in their grande fictitious scheme of a ”fairer society”, yet struggle to realise it is the very plans they so desperately wish to implement that fucked things up in the first place.

    Like a child believes at around 5 years old, tw*ts like Jones still believe the government has a magic money tree.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
