  1. What does this even mean? Stability in what...

    What does this even mean? Stability in what context? Economic stability? That's not in the total control of a government. Social stability? Law attempts to provide that, and it's the responsibility...
  2. What? No. My solution is to stop being envious of...

    What? No. My solution is to stop being envious of what other people have and get on with your life. Not you personally, anyone who thinks it's not fair that they don't have the nice things their...
  3. I agree, but I prefer to leave the economy at the...

    I agree, but I prefer to leave the economy at the mercy of the markets where possible. Natural monopolies, natural resources and infrastructure, energy, health, education, water, things that are...
  4. People have more faith in capitalism than...

    People have more faith in capitalism than socialism. Even poor people. That really is all it boils down to.
  5. Well if you're hinting at offshore banking then...

    Well if you're hinting at offshore banking then we're moving into the murky world of tax evasion, a form of corruption. f rich people are making legal savings and investments, that capital isn't...

    It's hilarious that the poorest person here is the most right wing.
  7. A lot of people using the word "handout" to...

    A lot of people using the word "handout" to describe a government taking money off you and then giving you some of it back. Hilarious really.

    The weakening of the Sterling is only a problem if you...
  8. Why? There are an absolute fuck ton of people who...

    Why? There are an absolute fuck ton of people who would love that job for £9.50 an hour, all just as capable of making tea as the next person. Maybe she has a good rapport with the players and is...
  9. I mean, to go further on this point, you're...

    I mean, to go further on this point, you're basically arguing that a millionaire surrounded by billionaires is poor. This extreme shows why I think it's bordering on ludicrous to use what other...
  10. I mean the problem here is you're wanting to...

    I mean the problem here is you're wanting to regulate the freedom of individuals and entities to agree to an economic relationship. Such regulation already exists in the form of minimum wage and...

    Who would have thought that getting rid of Boris would result in an actual Conservative government?
  12. Fair enough, but then we're entering the murky...

    Fair enough, but then we're entering the murky world of subjectivity once again. And if someone plays the system legally but with questionable ethics, the problem isn't the individual, it's the...
  13. idk what Bezos is doing but it's his money, he...

    idk what Bezos is doing but it's his money, he can do what he likes with it provided it was legitimately accrued. I'd be more worried about the many billions that corrupt governments steal from the...
  14. I don't give a fuck if you deserve it or not....

    I don't give a fuck if you deserve it or not. It's none of my business, and it's not making me poorer. And "deserve" is one of those super subjective words, like "fair".

    If you get a pay rise...

    Meanwhile in Iran, women are burning their hijabs and the Islamic flag of Iran (punishable by death) because Iranian morality police beat to death a woman who wasn't wearing her hijab properly....
  16. £10k a year is not poverty. That's roughly what...

    £10k a year is not poverty. That's roughly what you can expect if you claim basic benefits.

    £10k a year is poor by UK standards, but if you're defining this as poverty then idk what to say.
    ...
  17. I define poverty as being very poor., lacking...

    I define poverty as being very poor., lacking basic essential such as somewhere safe to live, and regular meals. Nobody in the UK is, or should be, very poor. If you ask for help, you get given, for...
  18. Some people with the same circumstances as me...

    Some people with the same circumstances as me might say they have been living in poverty. The difference between me and them is that I own my life failures, I don't blame anyone else, I'm not a...
  19. Interesting. So you draw the line at "breaking...

    Interesting. So you draw the line at "breaking the law".

    So presumably you don't have a problem with the "BloJo" incident? I mean, it's not illegal to have your penis sucked by a willing lady.
    ...
  20. You know how you'd have cared if it was Boris?...

    You know how you'd have cared if it was Boris? Well that's why some people cry about what Trudeau does.

    The nonchalant bloodthirst is a bit much but he's lucky to not get shot.



    Fun fact - we already tax rich people. My stepdad has a £2000 Christmas bonus this year. Before tax. After tax it's...
  22. Yes, I'm not spoon, I'm not saying tax is theft....

    Yes, I'm not spoon, I'm not saying tax is theft. I'm down with tax. But the balance has to be right so we don't overtax businesses and in turn stifle the economy.



    So just have the tourists in...

    From Twitter -



    I mean this beautifully illustrates the concept of poverty in the UK. This guy is a lawyer, and he's moaning about the price of Lurpak like it's what people on a low income eat....

    I'm actually sticking up for the right of a talented teacher to earn more money at a private school, and the right of wealthy people to spend their money as they see fit. Capitalism baby.
  25. I'm sorry I'm yet to see anyone offer a solution...

    I'm sorry I'm yet to see anyone offer a solution to human hardships. So far all I've heard is poop say he wants to confiscate castles off a family.

    And I've avoided bringing this up so far...
