    Default Socialism is so much more comfortable...

    ...with £3m in the bank.

    Spear’s magazine - a bimonthly British magazine for high-net-worth individuals - reported that Jeremy Corbyn, MP for Islington North has a net worth of £3 million.

    The Wealth Management Survey has also said he has claimed over £3 million from the state since the late 1980s.

    As has always been said.

    There was a committed Communist in my wife's extended in law family. He constantly criticised capitalists and the capitalist ideology. When he died, he left a small fortune. It transpired that he'd been playing the stock market all his life. They are all hypocrites. The Greens are no different. What I say to the greens is unless they live in a tepee and exist off the land, then they have no right to criticise anyone who just lives their life within the constraints of our modern society.

    Hi JtB, eff off, there's a good chap. Your posts are too long, boring, and invariably, bollocks.

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Both populists and socialists are profligate with spending. It does not imply that they are the same.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    Indeed. But the Tories, now having become populist, have to spend.

    Basically, the stupids in the Western world have decided they want a piece of the pie even when, in general, they've been too thick to contribute to it.

    And there are plenty of politicians willing to ride on their backs for personal gain.
