So here’s a call to arms

We need to control the rentiers. These are the companies that exploit us all for the benefit of their managements and those with significant wealth. They are:
– Bankers
– Financial managers, including of pension funds
– Institutional landlords who suck profit from entrepreneurial business and households.
– Large retailers, especially in the food sector who are destroying agriculture.
– On line companies that increasingly control access to services we rely on, from Amazon to the tech giants like Google, Microsoft and Apple.
– Big oil, who want to burn the planet.
– Big pharma, who control access to medicines.
– Big sugar, which is poisoning us with the fructose that causes obesity and so much of diabetes, as well as depression, anxiety and so much more, which they exploit by selling sugar spikes.
….
We need to tax wealth more, starting by transforming the ways we tax income from wealth and by removing the subsidies to wealth that massively boost inequality in the UK in ways I demonstrate in the Taxing Wealth Report.
….
The question is, when will we be angry enough to demand the change our society really needs that right now the neoliberal conspiracy

Why not be about as accurate and just blame the Joos?

  1. Big pharma, who control access to medicines

    Big pharma would happily sell us all the pills we wanted. It isn’t them controlling what we actually get access to.

  2. How are Big Oil burning the planet you thick tuberous twat?
    Are you including the entirely bollocks Scope 3 emissions (AKA what results from their customers actions)?
    Or put another way, aviation fuel to fly to the Channel Islands.

  3. Rentier is German for reindeer.

    Ever since I learnt that fact, I have imagined Santas sleigh being pulled by six rotund men in morning suits, top hats and spats.

    “The question is, when will we be angry enough to demand the change our society really needs”

    I’m angry enough now. And I think the change we really need is for him to be locked in a small padded room so we don’t have to listen to this nonsense any more.

  5. Dennis, Tiresome Denizen of Central Ohio

    Imagine being locked in house with him for the holidays.

    Pity his poor family… If they, in fact, invite him such gatherings.

  6. I do like the way that he uses ‘…who control access to…’ when what most people would say ‘…who provide…’

    Presumably he thinks that if Amazon, Google, pharma companies, and so on were to cease trading the various services we get from them would just magically continue to be available without being provided by anyone else.

    I expect he thinks those services would be abundantly provided by the courageous state, at no cost to the user, and with total customer satisfaction. And the land would flow with milk and honey.

  8. Just made some minor edits for him

    We need to control the rentiers These are the bureaucracies that exploit us all for the benefit of their management and those with significant political power. They are:
    – Universities and Academic institutions
    – Public Sector Managers, especially of ‘essential’ services
    – Institutional local government employees who suck profit from entrepreneurial business and households.
    – Large bureaucracies, especially in the health sector who are killing people.
    – On line regulators that increasingly control freedom of expression and the ability for individuals to earn money online, in particular the censorship departments of the tech giants like Google, Microsoft and Apple.
    – Transnational bureaucracies like the UN and WEF, who want to enslave the planet.
    – The WHO, who would like to mandate consumption of dangerous experimental medicines.
    – Big environmental lobbyists and charities, which are murdering us with the ‘Net Zero’ ideology that causes starvation and as well as depression, anxiety and so much more, which they exploit by telling us that we ‘don’t have a choice’
    ….
    We need to drastically reduce the size of government, starting by transforming the ways we provide public services by removing the subsidies to parasitic bureaucracies that massively boost pension and income inequality in the UK in ways that are demonstrated continuously

    Presumably he thinks that if Amazon, Google, pharma companies, and so on were to cease trading the various services we get from them would just magically continue to be available without being provided by anyone else.

    I doubt he’s ever pondered such a thing.

    Richard Murphy’s mind is full of ghosts, and all he can think of is getting rid of them. Beyond that there is nothing.

  10. Still the same old shite from this windbag – MOAR TAX and kill all Financial managers, including of pension funds – presumably so that he can steal everyones pension. It’s getting embarrassing now – Wolfie Smith was a fictional comedy character we all laughed at – not a role model.

  11. “I’ll stick to sucrose then.”

    Which is 50% fructose………sucrose is just one glucose molecule stuck to a fructose molecule. The first thing your body does when eating it is split it into its constituent parts which then get metabolised as if you’d eaten pure amounts of either.

  12. Van Patten:
    I would also explicitly add to you list “Big Media” and “Big Woke” the affiliation of puritanical gender/race/food/health/speech control/reparations advocates grifting away ever more and twisting every part of society into something that the Pythons would have rejected as being too absurd.
