It looks like both Richard Murphy and John Lewis don’t understand what ‘in real terms’ means.

Never mind.

  1. Bloke in North Dorset

    That would be funny, if it wasn’t so scary that he is listened to in places with influence on the general population eg BBC.

  2. Stiv Bators

    An older one – ‘Why is the NHS in crisis’

    As several has said here – it’s quite unusual to see such blatant evidence of a mental breakdown advertised to thousands. This on top of having had COVID at least 4 separate times. He’s certainly a special kind of guy…

  3. Perhaps we should launch a campaign for Spud to get an HGV licence. We need truck drivers more than witless professors of political economy

  4. @Diogenes: Not a good idea.

    Customer: Drive this load to Wolverhampton.

    P³: No, I’m going to take it to Cardiff because my theory says that’s better and I’ll take it twice as that raises more tax.

  5. Dennis, On The Front Lines Fightin' Them Chlorinated Chickens

    I’d rather have him ranking on a blog than operating heavy machinery.

  6. Theophrastus (2066)

    “Ranting. Although ranking works.”

    And I had assumed “ranking” was you being ironically coy, Dennis.

  7. I’d pay good money to see this blowhard interviewed by Andrew Neil – it would be hilarious.

  8. “I’d pay good money to see this blowhard interviewed by Andrew Neil – it would be hilarious.”

    I’d certainly ensure I had an empty bladder & bowel before watching it. It’d be the sort of thing could provoke a nasty accident. Actually having an oxygen cylinder handy could be wise as well. The human body’s not designed to cope with that level of humour.

  9. Dennis, Etc., Etc., Etc.

    And I had assumed “ranking” was you being ironically coy, Dennis.

    Over the years many adjectives have been used to describe Dennis. Coy is not one of those adjectives.

  10. He also knew nothing about China given that he thought its next big export to the world was going to be recession.
