  1. mmm It does seem that only a certain set of views are permitted to be put on this forum.
  2. Well I could have written "Welsh" but he isn't British adequately covers the both of us. Sorry if you find that offensive.
  3. Perhaps you're just not very funny
  4. Do you really think so ? How terribly sad for you I'm pretty proud of it. Sorry about that, but I love my country, I'm happy in my skin, I like my life and my family and friends and where I live and my job and everything. I'm not all burned up with self-hatred and envy and bile. Sorry about that. Maybe I'm just on the wrong forum, eh ?
  5. Oh, I'm sorry, is that point of view forbidden on "your" forum ?
  6. Farrange is just an ignorant shouty idiot He's an embarrassment to anyone proud to be British

    Another One Bites The Dust

    +1 childishly simplistic brutalist idiocy. He's an austrian all right.

    Halifax Hpi - August.....merged

    I'm studiously neutral in this debate - learning a lot from both sides, and finding myself agreeing with parts of both, and with posters I normally don't agree with at all. From that liver-assed, fence-sitting perspective, I'd say that Godley's being as reasonable as most anyone else on this thread.

    Dangerous Economic Misconceptions

    I disagree with quite a bit of what's on here, and even I worry about confirmation bias ! This place is probably as close to a monoculture as you can get on t'interwebs

    Those "uneducated" Hpcers...

    So... Most people are male, aged 35-44, have a PhD and browse from school
  11. +1 Managerialism is what's strangling the country; crappy 1980s management-by-write-it-down worship Bad enough in the private sector, bonkers in the public. Public services should be run as services, not pretend-businesses
  12. Of course it can, in principle. Might be a weird society but it can exist. And the world in which there were no public sector would also be weird...
  13. <shrugs> depends how you look at it. The source of that wealth is people buying stuff from them, directly and indirectly. With the public sector it's much the same people paying, directly and indirectly, just through a different mechanism.
  14. That there is no legitimacy to democracy or that they're holding a gun to your head ? Really ? Well, I never actually said that. And, just to be clear, I'm not. Apart from that - top response, Cheffers, top response
  15. That's still a "no" then No. I'm just saying you can't respond to my point on the economy without either denying the legitimacy of democracy or using language better suited to stage and screen, like " the state does point a gun in people's face to get what it wants" I mean, if that's all you've got then that's OK. It's exactly what i expected No. No names have been called. edit for /quote
