What an truly odious piece of poisonous crap he is. Utterly bereft of any redeeming features. Bloke in North Dorset May 25, 2022 at 11:36 am Accusing someone, organisation or country is a way of dehumanising them to justify the use of violence against them. It’s not just Putin, some of the left wing stuff in the USA made that clear with the “it’s OK to punch a Fascist ” slogans and memes. Steve May 25, 2022 at 11:40 am In the midst of Partygate Reeee! Why won’t the government resign over Brexit an issue no normal person cares about?!? It will, in effect, be a crime to express dissent with the government in a peaceful fashion. Oho? According to Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP (me neither): The Bill specifically targets the activism of groups such as Extinction Rebellion, Just Stop Oil, Insulate Britain, Kill the Bill, and the Black Lives Matter movement Based if true. asiaseen May 25, 2022 at 12:23 pm It will, in effect, be a crime to express dissent with the government in a peaceful fashion. In Hong Kong now that is reality. A Nat-Insec judge only has to assume dissent, despite any evidence, to bang one up for at least 5 years. Even raising money to help someone out with legal expenses is a crime. Dennis, Bullshit Detector May 25, 2022 at 12:29 pm I am having to help a relative who needs support and am taking time off to do so. In and of itself a frightening thought… Getting “support” from Richard Murphy. Beyond that, is it really appropriate to take time off from fighting fascism if fascism is as close to becoming reality as Murphy claims? Andrew C May 25, 2022 at 12:33 pm @V_P “Utterly bereft of any redeeming features” He’s going to die one day. That’s a redeeming feature. Harry Haddock's Ghost May 25, 2022 at 1:40 pm If the conservatives actually were fascists, they would have never let go of the Draconian COVID powers they brought in; but they have. One particular assembly hasn’t, however, and plans to keep them indefinitely; one which Richie has close connections to. Interesting that. Bloke in North Dorset May 25, 2022 at 2:00 pm “ He’s going to die one day. That’s a redeeming feature.” The problem is that his zombie ideas won’t die. Tractor Gent May 25, 2022 at 2:11 pm Steve: I think the public did care and were angry when it came out. But not enough to get the pitchforks out, or to defenestrate Boris. Everyone knows it’s one rule for us and The Anointed can get away with a lot. What would have been good though is more of a loud cry of “Don’t you ever fucking do that to us again!” Steve May 25, 2022 at 2:36 pm TG – Everyone knows it’s one rule for us and The Anointed can get away with a lot What annoys me, candidly, is how endlessly gullible and bovine most of the public is. We can get away with a lot too, the state never had the power to enforce lockdowns, mask rules and compulsory-esque vaccination. People did that to themselves. Most people seem to have enjoyed their leash training, so they’ll get more of that. PF May 25, 2022 at 2:40 pm What would have been good though is more of a loud cry of “Don’t you ever fucking do that to us again!” I doubt that the kind of people who might say something like that would have been taken in or would have gone along with it in the first place… PF May 25, 2022 at 2:49 pm “Taken in” is the wrong expression; “gone along with it” is what I meant. Actually, quite a lot of people that were successfully lied to but then later realised what was happening. Sam Duncan May 25, 2022 at 3:05 pm Having read a bit about what Mussolini actually did, I’m long past rolling my eyes at such statements. My question these days is how this makes them any different to every other mainstream political party in the western world. They’re all the same, “Left“, “right”, “centre”, red, green, blue, yellow, and every colour in between: corporatism today, corporatism tomorrow, and corporatism forever. Look at them all right now in Davos, or six months ago here in Glasgow: the only dissent they ever hear is, “You should be doing more of this stuff, and faster”. And they don’t want to hear anything else; that’s “misinformation”, or worse, “hate-speech”, and must be suppressed. Yes, I am feeling particularly miserable and misanthropic today. How did you guess? Bongo May 25, 2022 at 3:32 pm Wonderful to see the 5* reviews coming in for the econ book that Spud dissed https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cant-Just-Print-More-Money/product-reviews/1847943381 Andrew C May 25, 2022 at 4:10 pm @Bongo Thanks for the link. Another 5 star review added. BraveFart May 25, 2022 at 4:12 pm Everyone should appoint Richard Murphy as their proxy for voting. That’s about the only thing that would be acceptable democracy to the pustulent Prof. Ed P May 25, 2022 at 5:46 pm “I am having to help a relative…” – not just helping, as any normal sane person would, but having to help. He’s beyond parody now, with a massive ego (which in no way makes up for his lack of talent). Pompous, ignorant and wrong about everything – truly a man for our times! aaa May 25, 2022 at 6:41 pm More potato references in Amazon reviews! Nautical Nick May 25, 2022 at 6:47 pm Thanks, Bongo! That’s another great example of the Spud’s stupidity unearthed! And what a gem! Spectacular stupidity! From Spud’s review, Quote: It also fails to understand money. At no point does it say it is debt, which is the only short-hand explanation for what it is, and which permits it to be recorded in accounting systems. The claim is made that it is trust. You cannot do debits and credits for trust. You can for debt. /Quote Money may be debt, or maybe not. But what is being referred to, surely, is that without a Gold Standard or similar, all money is based on trust. People will only accept it if they trust its value. You can account in whatever denomination you like, but if it is not acceptable as money, there it really doesn’t matter whether you can record it or not, as it ceases to be money. I sneeze in threes May 25, 2022 at 7:35 pm “Mr. Richard J. Murphy 1.0 out of 5 starsVerified Purchase This is a terrible book – that reiterates myths about banking Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 May 2022 This book is written in a deeply patronising style, as if that is necessary when speaking to non-bankers. It also fails to understand money. At no point does it say it is debt, which is the only short-hand explanation for what it is, and which permits it to be recorded in accounting systems. The claim is made that it is trust. You cannot do debits and credits for trust. You can for debt. QE is incredibly poorly described, and its use to directly fund government – which is exactly what it did during Covid – is not mentioned. Perhaps worst, the book actually says banks are intermediaries between savers and lenders – which in 2014 the Bank of England says is wrong and should not be in a textbook, but they have now issued one saying just that. The whole book reads like propaganda for a failing economic system. It is deeply unreliable. 10 people found this helpful” Interested May 25, 2022 at 8:45 pm I can understand why a lot of people are angry that the government banned them from having parties and seeing their friends while they themselves (i.e. the government) were having parties and seeing their friends. I’m angry about it myself, and we never stopped having parties or seeing our friends. What I can’t understand is why the same people are not angry about, to give but one example, globalist cunts flying to Davos and enjoying lavish meals of the finest meats flown in from all over the world while telling us that we need to get used to no longer flying or eating meat, or, to give another example (I’ve got loads), attending fancy ‘charidee’ balls dressed in $10,000 gowns or $5,000 suits and wearing no masks while attended to by minimum wage servants who are forced to wear masks. Not only are those people not angry about these globalist cunts, they positively support them and revel in their pronouncements. Weird! john77 May 25, 2022 at 9:56 pm No-one with any taste would wear a Hugo Boss suit, *even if it fitted him.* BlokeInTejas May 26, 2022 at 2:14 am Interested Because nobody’s reporting on it every day in the meeja… The meeja is chasing The Guilty Ones. Trump. Homophobes. Me too aggressors. Fascist Tories. The unbearably successful Musk. Etc… Even bad propaganda, piled on unceasingly, has an effect.
