Possible Venezuelan Civil War on the way?

#21
Not quite the whole story.

Planned economies are a bit of a laugh because Civil Servants get paid the same regardless of whether their plans succeed or fail.
FIFY.

The people who "plan" planned economies do not have to respond to price signals so they just don't even bother.

To people like Corbyn, Chavez and Maduro; Adam Smith's 'Invisible Hand' is well, just - invisible!

Governments have no business being in business.

I've seen it all before. Promises, promises, promises.

People really believe this OPM stuff too.

They will keep drinking the socialist cool aid right up to the point until they have to start wiping their arse with grass and leaves.

That's the tipping point.

Let's hope they're more successful than the Turks.

Here's one for the military strategists to ponder: If Corbyn and his bunch of swivel-eyed commies had won the last General election, could he deploy British troops to Venezuela to assist his 'Democratically elected' mates?

Easy one.

Jezza would not send troops.

What would be sent is two very important things.

* A token shipment of toilet paper as relief supplies.

* A tweet that suggested that Majuro was "on the right side of history"

Sorted.

FOC, I can't see Corbyn wanting to be accused of being a red Tory

Strange how Corbyn was praising Chavez and his socialist revolution before it lead to this
Wasn't just Corbyn and Red Ken. Here's Arrse's second favourite Member (of Parliament) telling all her followers how great the Venezuelan election was. She was there with Owen Jones and a few other "independent" election observers.

Diane and Owen's independent and fair minded chums are:-

Grahame Morris - Labour MP and Chair of the Unite trade union Group in Parliament.

Hugh O’Shaughnessy - Guardian writer who, unlike Owen, steers shy of the telly.

Seumas Milne - Former Guardian journo and even more former editor of a Comunist Party in house journal, Seumas is now Jeremy Corbyn's director of communications.

Three Guardianistas and two loony left MPs observing the re-election of a semi-Communist government. That's about as impartial as you can get.



A coup has been a long time coming in Venezuela. It's not just toilet paper that rarer than rocking horse sh1t, there simply isn't enough food to go round any more, even on the black market. People are starving while party members and friends of politicians get what food there is.

Apparently the rot set in when Chavez decided to strike a blow against unemployment. He ordered the state owned oil company to take on an extra 300,000 employees. The price of Venezuelan oil went through the roof. Venezuela, with bigger oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, now imports oil from Nigeria because it's cheaper than getting the local stuff out of the ground.

Concentrating on oil was obviously a bad idea. Even the cocaine trade has dropped, from 4th to 6th in the world although I'd imagine that is from an outside influence rather than domestic.

Doh!

You are absolutely correct

It would be Majuro tweeting that Corbyn is on the "right side of history".

How could I have got that so twisted and wrong?

Let us just hope that the coup organiser's have this thing properly planned.

Just remember guys. Things have changed a lot since 1973.

By all means round up the Civil servants, journalists, the academics, and the enablers. Pay close attention to any Warrant Officers in the army reserve who have never deployed - (Top tip.)

Gather them up in the football stadium as is the custom.

Now, what you don't need to do is disappear them.

Tossing them out of helicopters mid ocean is so passe. Times have moved on. Technology is your friend.

Just confiscate their mobile phones and deny them access to the internet. Problem totally solved.

It will potentially save years of leftist moaning and whining as you try and catch up with the leading economy in South America - Chile.

All the best chaps.

Play nice.

Sounds exactly like standard 'modern' Labour thinking

He probably still is, remember the shite state of the place is all the fault or Thatcher and the US, there is nothing at all to criticise the Venezuelan authorities for. If this was good enough for Cuba it is good enough for Venezuela.

Looks like Maduro's continuing to chop anybody who disagrees or criticises his efforts to become effective dictator.

Attourney General is now banned from leaving the country and may face trial for 'Serious Errors'.

Though considering she criticised attempts to restrict Congress powers the charges are likely a cover.

And would all British military units now have "advisors" from such socialist paradises as China, Belarus andNorth Korea?.
