    Correct forum this time

    Watch max exodus of Tories and kippers to Macs (Linux is communist): Bill Gates says that capitalism cannot save us from climate change
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Actually, what Gate says is not too far from the truth.

    I know that in times of extremis, like WWII , for example, the normal rules were suspended and society became almost 100% socialist. There was a centrally directed supply economy, designed to produce a war machine.

    The fact that we moved to a 'total war' 3 years before the Germans was one of the main reasons that we survived, then beat them.
