    This strikes me as being the only logical conclusion for their "leadership"
    They appeal to the naive and gormless people who have lost the ability to think for themselves, these people  become the followers.
    They take support form the general population by  adopting  causes that at face value allow their followers to virtue signal how good and lovely they are - LBGTQ rights, Black Lives Matter etc etc - all these causes at first glance (without too much thinking) have a certain appeal - it is only when you really think about them you realise they are bullshit - but by portraying any disbeliever as literal Nazis then you prevent people from engaging in rational discussion and these issues become accepted doctrine of the people and the left are seen as being wonderful people setting the agenda.
    It is only when you get into proper discussion with somebody that you can convince them that your side of an argument has value - but you cannot discuss anything with the lefts converts as they have been convinced that if you don't go along with their agenda then you are an evil Nazi,racist etc etc.
    How do we get out of this position ? I really don't know; I feel that their is a real danger they will rise to power, and although their rule would be over when the people start to starve, by then, the damage will be done.

    Chewing Grass got a reaction from The XYY Man in We're all going on a summer holidays   
    I always found that when carting my 5 around that everyone got a holiday except me who was expected to do and sort everything out as well as working to pay for it.
    The only person who needed a holiday was me and I didn't get it.
    It has left me scarred for the rest of my life and I just can't be bothered with them anymore as I now hate anything that requires planning and organising.

    Having lived through the latest bout of marxism I have come to the conclusion that they don't give a shit about wealth at all and only care about levelling everything so long as they are in control.
    Like a medieval despot punishing the population of a conquered country by razing it to the ground. They always know there will be enough for them, personally, to feast on whilst everyone else starves. They really are the lowest of the low - societal vandals. The governments of all counties need to come out and label all marxist organisations as terrorists and wipe them off the face off the Earth. McCarthyism was a good thing.

    Venezuala the poor country that sits on top of the biggest proven oil reserves in the world.
    More oil than the Arabs.

    I disagree with your observation - I have heard a lot more (relatively) poor people (and the left) complaining that the rich don't pay enough, than the rich saying they pay too much.
    Essentially, the left will only be happy when there is no difference between the wealthiest and poorest - and we know that can only mean we will all be broke, apart from those that have status within the party. To paraphrase George Orwell, we are all equal, but some are more equal than others.

    The key is to encourage the generation of wealth rather than attempting to redistribute it.
    Singapore versus Cuba. Pick one.

    Dear oh dear Sooty.
    Albatriiies are a member of the Procellariiformes order. Petrols, shearwaters.
    Its actually a fucking big fulmar.
    I know this, as we used to go egging on the cliff, where theres a fulmar colony.
    Fulmars puke an oily fishy gut dregs on predators.
    We use to come home, covered in fulmar sick and my sister would say - spys been puked on by a dwarf albatross.

    Well this morning I heard on the state propaganda machine (R4) the Welsh health minister warn people about going across the border today as their rule relaxation starts on Monday, his justification..."Don't risk damaging all the hardwork/sacrifice of the lockdown"...so two extra days is going to make the difference between containment and resurgence of the epidemic is it?...do these politicians really think about what they are saying or is it just about being authoritarian?!

    And then for those who do manage to save anything inflation is the ongoing hidden tax. I say hidden because most people do not see it as a tax but it is as it is absolutely caused by governments printing more money.

    Chewing Grass reacted to Bedrag Justesen in The Mediterranean rescue missions haven't solved the snag that Europe no longer wants them   
    Look what happens to anybody that does.  Farage for example.
    We need arrests and prison sentences for anybody associated with Refugees Welcome or asylum seeker farming. 
    Bridget for a start.  
    Lord Dubs next.
    Even many sympathetic to the plight of genuine asylum seekers have turned against being stabbed to death while they picnic in the park.
    Again the MSM sicken us by interviewing spiteful ungrateful twats moaning about their budget accommodation, uninspiring food, and weak wi-fi. 
    Whilst they complain about their Radisson or IBIS prison cell, our homeless military veterans fill pop-up tents in TESCO Express doorways.
    Refugees fuck off.

    Reminds me of my youth spent fucking about with old minis & swapping engines.
    £250 Rover 100 / Mini Metro with a Rover 75 Turbo engine stuck in it 275 bhp - 750kg - 350 bhp per tonne.
    Total spend £3000

    Greece thinks we are not safe and I hope they maintain that stance until the end of July. I don't want to wish ill health to anyone, just some more gov incompetence and a couple more local lockdowns in the next week or so please, thank you very much.
    The wife mind you is climbing the walls at the prospect of not being allowed to go (after having her hopes up with all the talk of air bridges) but I am just happy to pocket the £10K as I expect rough seas ahead.

    Chewing Grass reacted to eek in What's going to collapse next...   
    We cancelled our 2 weeks in Cornwall last week as there was zero point travelling to be in a smaller house with the hassle of booking things in advance.
    It's since been taken by someone else so I'm led to believe we will be getting a full refund of our deposit.

    I think the problem is where their immigrants have come from.
    1960 - 70% would have never accepted communism

    1990 - 20%

    2018 <10%

    Where has whitey gone...

    Chewing Grass reacted to Van Lady in Localised Lockdowns, how you gonna act?   
    Aye. Since the Scottish Indy referendum and the eu referendum then trump/boris bashing my acquaintances have diminished. I can’t be bothered listening to all the warriors telling me how the world is from their perspective when they can’t listen to mine,
    The virus is another division that is occurring. I’m a heartless bastard according to some because I disagree with the lockdown after the nhs was able to cope. I’m not the only heartless bastard around here though as I know a few who think similarly.
