So this tells me thenDecember 5, 2016 Tim WorstallThe Blogger Himself34 CommentsTim Worstall, who wrote the piece, is a horrid man who is anti-minimum wage among other repugnant things…. previousSo, Six Nations predictions thennextMemo from Cuba 34 thoughts on “So this tells me then” Mal Reynolds (Serenity) December 5, 2016 at 11:17 am Hahaha. “Reputation of only picking facts that suit his arguments” This from people who want to implement a philosophy that massacred tens of millions of their own citizens in the 20th century every single time it was tried “because it has not been tried properly yet”. Theophrastus December 5, 2016 at 11:28 am Definitely one for your Vainglory section: “a horrid man who is anti-minimum wage” – Socialist News Surreptitious Evil December 5, 2016 at 11:32 am Hey, at least you cherry-pick from actual “facts” rather than invent them (or in the worst cases, go out and actually create them so that you can then complain about them.) BraveFart December 5, 2016 at 11:40 am Kathleen Friel may be an ugly, hatchet-faced lesbian, or she may not be. You make a guess. Andrew M December 5, 2016 at 11:51 am Forget the finances for a moment. The Queen uses the palace to entertain foreign dignitaries and to generally impress Johnny Foreigner (both dignitary and tourist) with its splendour. That’s a task for which it is manifestly unsuited at present. It’s entirely right that the taxpayer should fork out to maintain it. David December 5, 2016 at 11:53 am I think you are in there Tim, if you play your cards right. Tim Worstall December 5, 2016 at 11:55 am What, a sympathy blow job if the Prodigal Son sees the light? Could be, could be, not sure I’ll risk it though….. Squander Two December 5, 2016 at 11:57 am To be fair, I’m actually quite impressed that they reproduced your entire article before riposting to it, rather than cherry-picking out-of-context quotes. Or are they just sticking it to The Man’s copyright law? Demetrius December 5, 2016 at 12:00 pm Where I wonder does HM prefer to put her feet up, exercise the dogs and chat to the neighbours? Sandringham and Balmoral I suspect. Also, could it be possible that it is only a sense of duty etc. that bring her to spend time in that grim barn of an under heated and over large palace the State requires her to use for State purposes? Surreptitious Evil December 5, 2016 at 12:07 pm Demetrius, Apparently it is referred to, in appropriate circles, as “The Office”. Diogenes December 5, 2016 at 12:15 pm The stupidity on display there makes Spud and his gang of tools seem intelligent Martin December 5, 2016 at 12:19 pm I notice the site didn’t mention that she is the highest rate taxpayer and all government are doing is reducing her tax for a period, in which she will still be the highest rate taxpayer bilbaoboy December 5, 2016 at 12:30 pm The insult is up there with ‘pendant’ Tim, you should be proud! Charlie Suet December 5, 2016 at 12:42 pm When are you getting the business cards printed? John miller December 5, 2016 at 1:00 pm Tim, I strongly suggest you ignore David’s advice and stick the todger in a knothole in the fence. Safer, and, in all probability, more pleasurable. On a more pleasant note, the £369M is over 10 years. No mention of that. Clarissa December 5, 2016 at 1:06 pm I see that their site logo is the Gadsden flag but with the snake being strangled by an iron fist. It’s almost as if they are trying to tell us something about liberty and socialism… Mr Ecks December 5, 2016 at 1:33 pm If 150 million corpses didn’t get the message over the fucking flag is as redundant as most of the minimum wage recipients. Van_Patten December 5, 2016 at 2:22 pm To echo Ecks here – the site is misnamed – if it was called ‘Memoirs of the killing fields’ it might at least give some idea of the pracital impact of these ideologies…. Cal December 5, 2016 at 2:34 pm “To be fair, I’m actually quite impressed that they reproduced your entire article before riposting to it” They know that none of their readers will actually read it. Bucko December 5, 2016 at 2:37 pm Yes, the minimum wage is a repugnant thing. Dennis the Peasant December 5, 2016 at 2:51 pm The banner is lovely: “No Tea For Me/Say No To Fear And Hate” That just about says it all, doesn’t it? Bongo December 5, 2016 at 3:01 pm Nice Venn diagram on the minimum wage and intellectual consistency http://freedomandprosperity.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Mark-Perry-Consenting-Adults-Venn-Diagram.jpg Bloke in North Dorset December 5, 2016 at 3:21 pm I know its pointed out on here regularly, but these people really are mental. Do they think that if we became a socialist republic overnight socialist pixies would fly around making all the problems in Buck House disappear? We’d still need a head of State, either ceremonial of executive, who would need to entertain foreign dignitaries etc and as our heritage is a comparative advantage it would be stupid not to use it. Those costs and the civil list are part of the price we pay for being a State that does business with the rest of the world. Roué le Jour December 5, 2016 at 3:31 pm Isn’t “horrid” classist? As in “You horrid little man.” It’s the sort of thing the divine Margo would say. She should have followed it with “repellent” rather than “repugnant” though, for true authenticity. Bloke in Costa Rica December 5, 2016 at 3:39 pm I vote “beastly” for the echt middle-class Islington pearl-clutching. Rob December 5, 2016 at 5:08 pm Their most adored head of state died a billionaire, on an island where people queue for hours to buy basic food. They are cunts. jgh December 5, 2016 at 6:17 pm Notice the difference between Tim’s text where he demonstrates he knows what the RETURN key is for, and the standard socialist underlined wall of text underneath. Bloke in North Dorset December 5, 2016 at 7:17 pm jgh, They cocked up the HTML close tag at the end of the Source, so its all one hyper link back to Tim’s original piece. But yes, another piece of breathless left wing prose. Tel December 5, 2016 at 10:30 pm ‘Horrid’ is a bit rough. I mean, you are a child of Satan who sucks off possessed goats before breakfasting on human blood, but calling you ‘horrid’ is bang out of order. Diogenes December 5, 2016 at 10:49 pm And how much do those fortunate Americans pay for the tophole Obama? Diogenes December 6, 2016 at 12:37 am Good to see it added to the vain glory banner here Agammamon December 6, 2016 at 7:23 am Let me get this straight – this idiot rips the whole Forbes piece and posts it on his site with barely a paragraph of commentary to justify tacked on at the bottom? Has the guy never heard of ‘fisking’? PF December 6, 2016 at 11:21 am Diogenes “Good to see it added to the vain glory banner here” I hadn’t spotted that Jeremy Corbyn was also a fan – good stuff Tim! DP December 6, 2016 at 12:52 pm Dear Mr Worstall ” is a horrid man who is anti-minimum wage anti-unemployment among other repugnant things….” Fixed it for them. Now that’s what I call socialism.
