The right way: Bretton-woods

The right way: Bretton-woods: "In short the Bretton woods conference enabled the high tax economies of the west by preventing capital from moving elsewhere and thus preventing international capital competition and we are posed with the funding of the same welfare state (enlarged due to increased population and technology) after a economics crash and in a world of free capital."

Dizzy Thinks: The morons are back, this time with #savethenhs

Dizzy Thinks: The morons are back, this time with #savethenhs

A perfect example of the Left's hypocrisy.

"Yes children, that's right! We are now through the wonderful looking glass where the Opposition denounce policies based entirely on their own policies of the last decade because it's Tories implementing them.

Is it anyone wonder so many people think politics is a load of bollocks when this sort of intellectually vacuous and fluid position changes is so prevalent for all sane people to see?"

Well, I have some thoughts on that final point. But I think its something I will save for another time....
