You know, 3 yeas ago I got my arrse spanked by one of the more
The reviews are good...Goodness gracious; is this a sales flier for Rod Liddle
Democracy is flawed, but the best of the range of killer systems we've dreamt up over the epochs. I thought we'd cracked it, but then came super-democracy, in which those who Know Better than the Rest of Us make the decisions Democratically. Those people seem to live in North London, a suburb of Washington DC, San Francisco, Moscow and Beijing. Tel Aviv now, too, apparently.
They are, because Liddle is one of the best of our journos - still a journo and not to be entirely trusted, of course, and he comes from Middlesborough, which isn't a good thing.
Quite. I sometimes wonder whether there's enough 'community cohesiveness' among opponent camps to cause a civil war. I suspect not; 'community cohesiveness' now depends on the levels of state support each receive. Or is that a cynical view? Hard to tell.The minute anyone uses the words 'traitor' or 'treason'about Brexit I know it's time to make soothing noises and back away quickly...
Why? I was hoping to see how many pages would it lead to...just like how long "the easy peasy" Brexit deal would be completed in.
You may as well argue the benefits and disadvantages of diesel, petrol, electrical or wind-powered engines. If one or the other solely powered Britain (or America, Australia, Canada or China) there'd be massive opposition, massive support, tremendous social discontent (on both sides of the argument), fourth estate dissonance, underground press arterial-bursting BPs, and enormous economic upheaval. It is the law of democratic Twitterish and it is one which wholly disregards the fact that all of this Problem is one of Human Overpopulation. China and India are excused boots here; they're not Class Enemies.Oh good another bitch fight.
What ever, I have given up caring over these BREXIT threads. Once I did try and keep them on track but why both. Both sides are as bad as each other.
**** 'em and as long as it keeps them off the serious parts of the site all to the good.
The overwhelming emotion from most people is resignation and defeat. The net result is a boost for minor parties or they won't bother voting... Our FPP two party voting system cannot function in that climate and as such the system is broken and the next GE will I expect deliver a surprise result.When it comes, I think the reaction of the silent majority to all this will be... *ahem*... interesting.
