Quote:
What is more, the single biggest obstacle to economic recovery in the UK is continued existence of the Tory led coalition government. Yesterday Ed Miliband demonstrated how being in opposition is different from being in government. Labour was able to throw a hand-grenade into the Tory camp, but this gesture creates no meaningful precedent over how a future Labour government would handle comparable budget negotiations in the future. By so doing, Labour deeply weakened the authority of the Tory government, and exacerbated tensions with the Lib-Dem passengers. Politics is a contact sport, and Ed Miliband showed that he is prepared to do what it takes to defeat this shower of old Etonians.

Liberal activist seemingly with writer's block and little historical knowledge naively complains about the state and falls for classic divide and rule tactic re violence:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/01/unhappy-fact-activist-life

How much do you get paid these days for a submission in the Guardian? It's not just this article, but what counts for 'serious' political commentary in the liberal press currently is a joke! Has it always been so? Perhaps I'm suffering from a residual deference to professionalism I don't know...

The London-based performer [Example] also said that Wigan needs a “block button” to gag all the folk giving him grief.

The regular Twitter user, who has visited the town only once, Example (real name Elliot John Gleave) singled out the town for special censure saying: “What Twitter needs is a block button for the whole of Wigan. Most abuse I get comes from Wigan. Are there any nice people in Wigan?.”

Addressing more than 1,500,00 followers on the social media site about his most recent and only visit to the centre earlier in summer this year, he tweeted: “I take it Wiganers don’t drink green tea after the reaction I just got when I asked for one in Starbucks.”

David McConaghie is also a member of the Free Presbyterian Church and a prominent spokesman for a religious foundation.

He had been an election agent for David Simpson, the DUP MP for Upper Bann.

http://www.politicalaffairs.net/lenin-on-the-role-of-a-marxist-party-in-relation-to-the-people-chapter-five-of-left-wing-communism-an-infantile-disorder-by-thomas-riggins/

CPUSA is doing a series about the, apparently again pervasive, infantile disorder of left wing communism. The link above about the party has a lot more all-caps in it than the one about ultra-left opposition to trade unions. You can almost feel the anger he feels toward those long dead German ultra-lefts. I almost doubt he knows people still have such ideas- it's like finding out Santa Claus was fuckin real the whole time when you turn like 26.

People worry that putting one nation above another is immoral. But that’s what we do with family. Someone once told me that family is not who we share blood with, but who we’d give up blood for. In Britain, we share blood for one another, whether that’s through the army or donating through drips on the NHS. It doesn’t mean we’re justified in treating others badly. It just means there are bonds we just can’t break.

That article ends with the line, "Anyways, it's best not to think too hard about it." I don't know why the author, or anybody would feel that way. I'm going to be thinking about this all day with a huge shit eating grin. Its going to be a libertarian capitalist utopia? I can totally see this ending lord of the flies style. Its going to be soooo awesome. Why wouldn't I want to think about it?
