And if football cannot survive without the money from oligarchs / big business subsidy then it should not exist

If the Green New Deal cannot exist without the money from investors then it should not exist?

Aren’t TV and match day revenues enough? Isn’t this what fair competition is about?

Or don’t you like fair competition?

And maybe you don’t like democracy much either?

Aren’t revenues from windmills enough?

    Why not? Isn’t this *exactly* what we want? Rich people giving money/things to poorer people?

  2. If the “Fair Tax Mark” cannot survive without the money from business does it deserve to do so?

  4. What I found entertaining (And the other commenter could hardly be described by any rational person as ‘opposed to democracy’ as he worked in local government) was the sheer rudeness of the man, and his utter inability to answer even the simplest question. It’s remarkable just how extensive his ignorance is. For someone approaching 60 he has to be one of the most stupid people I have ever seen on the net. Just lacking in any real world understanding. It speaks volumes about the state of the UK Academic sector (particularly at the lower end) that such a person could get multiple appointments.

  5. “And if football cannot survive without the money from oligarchs / big business subsidy then it should not exist”

    Stupid statement. Of course football can exist without subsidies, but since they are available, the clubs would be stupid not to accept them.

  6. VP, I work in local govt.

    He thinks it is full of people who are just waiting for him to turn up and tell them what to do. And if they don’t like what he says, they will quietly leave without fuss.

    He wouldn’t last 5 minutes in that environment. It requires a lot of negotiation, persuasion, compromise.

    I’ve worked on sports-related projects at various LAs and am aware of a couple of others (Coventry getting involved in the stadium, I think Durham helped out the county cricket club some years back). It’s messy, not something you’d want to try every day.

    The longer you work in local government, the more you look askance at democracy.

  8. “Isn’t this *exactly* what we want? Rich people giving money/things to poorer people?”

    Of course not, that cuts out the Left who want to insert themselves between the two, thats where the power lies. Its never about the outcome, its all about the power……

    My mother worked in a local authority for more than a decade. Based on what she told me, And Murphy’s ability to provoke dispute in a phone booth, you may be being generous in your estimate of how long he’d last. It sounds like an extremely challenging environment. Far removed from the world of academia or Twitter lackeys he seems to inhabit!

  10. My mother’s experience in local government was that if you couldn’t get a day’s work completed in an hour and a half then you were a dud.
