Gary March 6, 2016 at 11:33 am Oh I dunno…I think it tells you rather a lot. You Tim may think you were discussing economics, but you have just been told that such matters are nothing more than a subset of moral philosophy. And on that ground they win because morals. David Moore March 6, 2016 at 11:40 am Tim, you have raised the ire of a cycling activist who follows Will Self. Yikes! JuliaM March 6, 2016 at 11:44 am And who can’t figure out how to put on an avatar… tomo March 6, 2016 at 12:15 pm Narcissists – particularly of the left are so predictable. What is it with these people that they presume to omniscience and arbitrary authority? Good to see them nettled like this – d’ya think with a bit more prodding they can be provoked to auto-combust? So Much For Subtlety March 6, 2016 at 12:18 pm Oddly enough, I too think TW is not fit to lick Willy’s boots. But perhaps not in the same way. Interested March 6, 2016 at 1:02 pm Andrew, Hutton has made a tidy living out of sitting on his fat arse telling stupid, low information, low attention span, catchphrase-yelling cunts like you what you want to hear, and then shitting all over the people he ’employs’ when it all comes on top. Some moral superiority, you soft prick. dearieme March 6, 2016 at 1:06 pm “…then shitting all over the people he ’employs’…”: then his boots would not be good to lick. Thank goodness Tim will be spared that. John miller March 6, 2016 at 1:12 pm If I had to make a choice, I’d sooner lick Willy’s boots than his arse… So Much For Subtlety March 6, 2016 at 1:18 pm John miller – “If I had to make a choice, I’d sooner lick Willy’s boots than his arse…” You know, there are some things that really don’t need to be said. NielsR March 6, 2016 at 1:39 pm Clearly, competition for the position of chief boot-licker is more fierce than anyone anticipated… Interested March 6, 2016 at 3:37 pm @dearieme Technically, if he shits all over other people then one would wish to avoid licking their boots. Theophrastus March 6, 2016 at 5:48 pm Now that the days of valets and spit & polish are long gone, ‘licking x’s boots’ has a rather tyrannical ring to it. Dennis the Peasant March 6, 2016 at 11:15 pm Is this Andrew Calladine cunt supposed to be someone? Or he just another wog with a bicycle and an opinion? So Much For Subtlety March 7, 2016 at 12:49 am Theophrastus – “Now that the days of valets and spit & polish are long gone, ‘licking x’s boots’ has a rather tyrannical ring to it.” Auberon Waugh always used to say that domestic servants should be tax deductible. We have a problem with the chronically underemployed who in better days would have gone into service. So perhaps it is time to follow Waugh’s advice? A little bit of tyranny might do our NEETs no end of good. Roue le Jour March 7, 2016 at 4:41 am SMFS Nice idea but today’s NEETs would simply beat you up and rob you, knowing they were looking at at most ten minutes community service (suspended). Domestic service won’t work unless the domestics are mortally afraid of being accused of theft or dismissed without a reference. No harm in reminding people that it is a communist principle that citizen shall not employ citizen though. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
