    Cameron should be delighted the old fool has meddled in matters well beyond
    his ken. But here is an idea, the CoE gives up the larger portion of it's
    vast wealth towards projects for poorer people in the UK.
    Questioned, not charged. Hmmm.

    I'll add this gem:

    You may not like the Conservative party (for history), particularly as they
    are not a single house ATM, and I'm certainly no Tory but if one had to vote
    on the three (on pain of death) of the other two, well <shakes head>

  3. All of which goes to show the parlous state of uk politics. It's just
    bloody depressing - an incompetent, hopeless government and a clueless
    directionless opposition.

    I don't agree with the first point. It's coalition. Look at the history of
    how it works in Europe.

    Errrr wrong.

    Firstly, and clearly you don't seem to like the man, he is however well

    Secondly that "wealth" would only get spent once. It's tied-up capital
    that gains interest/dividends that are used. So you'd throw it all away
    on a one-off spending spree and ruin the largest non-governmental social
    services organisation in the UK. Oh hang on, that's what HMG have been
    doing over the years, selling the family silver.

    He believes in fairies, ergo he is a fool, and his age is beyond

    He is a bit of a fool, certainly isn't doing much for the global Anglican
    Stupid Boy

    Give them the assets and use the long term revenue.

    A much better government than the previous fucking farce.

    I'd even excuse some of their confusion on the basis that policies had to be
    adapted/concieved in light of coalition.

    I'm fed up answering idiots who roll out the line "coalition politics is a
    disaster" with "if only we could be a disaster like, maybe, Germany"

    Germain Greer hit a very positive note on QT last night. Possibly the first
    time I've liked her! (1) She obviously despised Bliar and Brown.

  10. Using the patented Mavis Beacon "Hunt&Peck" Technique, Pip
    What, listening to an argument, taking it on board, and changing their
    minds you mean?

    I've never seen what's so bad about that, TBH.

    I think you mean `pushing their luck up to the point where the
    opposition to their nasty mean-minded policies becomes too great.'

    Likewise. Sadly it's far too often seen as a sign of weakness, in
    business as in politics.

    Decent chap but Pinko apparatchik.
    I thought nasty mean policies were de rigueur in their world.

  20. Hah. Don't kid yourself that the Tories would listen to any objections
    if they weren't in a coalition. Unfettered, they'd impose another round
    of Thatcherite shite on the country and sell off everything that's left,
    while screwing the underclasses to the wall as their City mates waltzed
    off with the profits.
