Pathetic. 10-year-old's humour.

I'm sure you have never posted anything immature when the subject involves an ideology or political party you don't agree with, which would of course justify your po-faced response...

Funnier than the conceit of the book are the one-star reviews of people who have obviously bought the book thinking it would actually explain how socialism can help create an economic and social utopia, despite the fact that you can preview the book's content before buying. But I understand their frustration: hardcore socialists are only keen on wasting other people's money, not their own.

I've certainly never posted anything that pathetic. Are you aware that Labour governments borrow less and repay more than Tory ones[1], and that terrorism rises under Tory governments, and falls under Labour ones?[2] The data proves it, in each case. I'll be on this on Saturday. The sooner we get rid of these heartless bastards, the better, and in the meantime we must keep up the pressure.

What have previous Labour governments got to do with the merits, or lack thereof, of socialism? A bit of historical revisionism going on here methinks. You didn't even vote for the Labour Party at the General Election before last, and now you are defending their record back through the Brown and Blair years? I shouldn't be surprised at such historical revisionism from a leftie, though. You'll call Blair a red tory out of one side of your mouth, whilst extolling his government(s) as an example of Labour economic prudence out of the other. Party above all things, comrade - including facts. ;)

terrorism rises under Tory governments, and falls under Labour ones


Tell me more about how IRA-inspied terrorism declined after John Major's government initiated the Irish peace talks. As for the recent increase in Islamic terrorism: I seem to remember not too long ago that Corbyn blamed recent foreign policy on the increase in Islamic terrorism, i.e. the Iraq and Afghan wars. Which party was in government when those wars happened?

Anyway, Corbyn was wrong to blame foreign policy on domestic Islamic terrorism. The main rise in that is the failed multicultural experiment which allowed insular, impoverished Islamic ghettos to rise up in pockets around the country. All mainstream political parties are to blame for that. In your blind, and newly found, zeal for the Labour party you forget that I am not a supporter of the Tory party either, having never voted for the Conservative party in my life, and unlikely to ever do so whilst it remains a party run by privileged, wet liberals.

Still, was fun to wind you up for a while. By the way, did you forget that you weren't supposed to be replying to me until I retracted my insinuation that you've been lying?

And I'm not apologising. The person to whom that was addressed perpetually goads people with his sarcasm, and I'd had enough. I'd block the twat if I could, but it isn't possible, I've discovered.

No complaints from me Sprocks; in any case, I've had worse said to me (& by PM where no-one else can see it!).
