A fair and balanced panel with a true diversity of views, no?

  1. Richie must be spitting tacks he wasn’t invited to contribute:
    “Europe’s crisis, Latin America and global alternatives to Neo-liberalism”

  2. Blimey! Has the world’s greatest economist been omitted? Not invited to share his all encompassing wisdom? Candidly, the panel indeed lacks diversity of views. Obviously, a hot-bed of neoliberalism in the making.

  3. I used to live next door to Kiri Trunks. Her brother Steamer and I often played together, but his older brother, Swimming, would have nothing to do with us.

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    I suppose it would be ungenerous to hope that an asteroid hits in the right place at the right time?

    Imagine a world without all of these people. It is easy if you try.

  5. It seems to be a TUC caper.

    So lots of little people paying their contributions to organisations that claim to exist to help them. But who do nothing about any real problems while using said contributions to fund talking shops for the scum of two continents.

  6. Shame on you Timmy for scraping old Peter Simple columns. You thought we wouldn’t notice. You were wrong.

  7. i wonder if the unions there realise that a government big and strong enough to set all prices isn’t going to give two fucks about free collective bargaining.

  8. What do they intend to replace the price system with? Barter? Great system. Or perhaps the government setting all prices? Ok, there are only millions of them, interdependent on each other. Or perhaps another wonder system?
