Timmy elsewhere

At City AM. Having fun:

Pleasantly surprised is to put it mildly. The sight of special snowflake heads exploding in outrage all around has been hugely enjoyable.

According to them, threats to deport 3m illegal immigrants seem to be different from the 3m deported under the Obama administration. The FBI director is a saint when Hillary is said to have not acted illegally over her emails, then vilified when he says, well, just a minute now… It’s almost as if there are no objective standards, only what benefits one side.

    It’s almost as if there are no objective standards, only what benefits one side.

    Feminism’s crass opportunism over Bill Clinton’s sexual assaults killed feminism as a serious movement. I would hope Hillary’s corruption of the Left will do them in as well. We will see.

    In the meantime I will rejoice in the hashtag NotAnyonesPresident.

  2. Tim Worstall – Fellow of the Adam Smith Institute
    Vicky Pryce – Crook & girlfriend of crook.

    Good to see CapX welcomes a diversity of opinion.

  3. O/T, but Polly’s gone off the deep end again, introducing us to the awful precarious world of the private renter, choosing the Percy family as an example:

    “When their first child was born, 14 years ago, Rob and Emma, who are now both 34, lived above a pub where Rob worked, but children weren’t allowed in staff quarters.”

    I stopped reading right there.

  4. …was impressed at how smart she is.

    OK

    Smart crook, ex-wife of crook and inamorata of crook. A small aviary of jailbirds.

  5. “Tad unkind…..met her a few weeks ago and was impressed at how smart she is.”

    Tim, I’m sure you’re right, but she doesn’t really do herself any favours with her first real concern being that Trump chose to meet up with one or two of those who actually supported him, and the second: “The list of male aides he has named so far hardly suggests social inclusiveness.”

    Where’s that photograph of the Huffington Post editorial board when you need it? Never tire of that:

  7. ‘Tad unkind…..met her a few weeks ago and was impressed at how smart she is.’

    But not smart enough to stay out of jail. That’s damned unsmart to most folks. Especially over such a tawdry, self-serving crime.

    Aren’t you falling into the trap of excusing the behaviour of people you are impressed by?

    The maths in that article is very screwy. They’re saying that the council could build the houses and recoup it’s money in 26 years, but with a rent of £450 and interest at only 0.5% they’d have to be able to purchase the land and complete the build for only £71k. This goes up to £140k if we assume 0% interest, but that’s not really realistic.

    Even so, if they can build a house for £140k and sell it for £250k, then the government can make a shedload of money just doing that – so why aren’t they?

    I propose we either abolish the need for planning permission or make a rule that the state must be able to buy at least a 50% share in any plot that is to be granted planning permission. If there’s that much money to be made, the state should be the one making it (and subsequently lowering our tax bills).

  9. I’m all for the rehabilitation of offenders, but is an ex-con who was married to a criminal politician, who committed a crime for her criminal politician husband, and who then hooked up with another criminal politician, the best person to criticise the morals of a politician?

  10. Vicky Pryce may indeed be very smart when speaking about economics (although still a crook), which is probably not too surprising given she’s a real economist, as opposed to the other stinking detritus clogging up the economics article writing world, such as, oh, in no particular order of ignorance, stupidity, venality or vindictiveness:

    Richard Murphy
    Paul Mason
    Aditya Checkmybotty
    Gideon Moonbat

  11. Thomas Fuller,

    I run a BSD VM just to read Timmy Elsewhere. Opera is doing a good job blocking me from seeing the ads after a couple of tweaks.

    For this article it took far longer to open the VM and load the content than it did to read and grok the content. Tim, as I don’t bother to load the risky sites, like Forbes, without a hint that it is worth the time, can you start letting us know about the more detailed pieces?
