Monday morning, same old statist crap roundup


David Davis

UPDATE1:- Guido has a thing up about possible new directors of the IEA. I favour our own home-grown, hand-knitted Dr Tim. Best man for the job: libertarian: heart in right place: won’t empty the Westminster wine-cellars, not today anyway: and some more of our stuff might get published, even for no money!

EARLIER:-

It says over at Guido Fawkes that “Ed” “Balls” is still running the government, and The Devil agrees, while over at Iain Dale’s place the big news is…Mandelson’s lying…again! (Don’t you all just get tired of this stuff after a while?)

At least The Englishman managed to get out of his Castle and go punting yesterday – wonder for how long that will still be allowed?

And … I think we said something about this before, but if not, then not. But if you are a government, and you get to a situation where you’re paying out to your clientariat more money that you take in from taxation, in order for said clientariat to not work, then isn’t it time to call in the Scottish Accountants? (Oooops, aren’t some of them on the gravy train already?)

However, interesting take on the concept of “decivilisation” – a useful word which I shall proceed to use unattributed henceforth, from a proper Scottish Accountant.

Jonathan Pearce over at Samizdata is probably feeling the same emotions.

Landed Underclass has gone silent for a bit…hope he’s all right. Or perhaps everything we think about this shower of wicked GramscoFabians has been said? (He’ll post now in a few minutes’ time, you just watch…)

  1. Punting – no life jackets, no hi viz, no I D, no NVQ in riverskills, no breathalyser, no nothing required. Perfect.

    • I’m glad it was like that, old-fella. Wish I’d been there.

      Brings back memories too. First proper girlfriend (St Anne’s) , and you slipped off onto the island (you know the one, with the bushes and trees.)

  2. I’m thinking of the island at the back of LMH – is it still there, or have the climate-change wallahs deleted it?
