James

As UKIP fade, and I move to the Libertarian Party, here is one from James, from a concert we went to just before Christmas:

I keep thinking about LPUK too.
It's obvious that UKIP is just as authoritarian as the blue rinse. Such a shame.

Go on, I will if you will!!

Anton Howes said...

Nono! Join the SLP, not LPUK! You know you want to...

Gregg said...

Go on then Anton, I will have a look and who knows?

Jules said...

What is the SLP?

Gregg said...

Social Liberalist Party

Just looked at the website.
It's frightening how little they understand about the real world.

Anton Howes said...

Please explain Jules,

I've sought comments and criticism from oxbridge economists, LSE professors and multiple think-tanks. Not once has that been the response. Please point out to me where we appear to be naive. I'd very much like to know.

How can they understand the real world? Most of them have only been in it for five minutes, they even boast about this fact on their site.
Aside from that "Social Liberist"? Sounds a bit sinister don't you think?

Lurch:

Why not join us and bring a bit of "experience and understanding" to the membership? Just because many of us are young, doesn't mean we're stupid. Besides, I'd say only half of the membership is under 25. We even have some members in their 60s and 70s.

At least criticise our policies and not our age. Since when have libertarians discriminated against people of different ages?

P.S. It's Liberalist, not Liberist. It was originally just 'Liberal', but the laws changed a few years ago and we're not allowed to have that due to the ongoing Liberal Party and "potential voter confusion".

Ah Anton my old (young!) mucka, I was not so long ago as young and wise as you. I'm not saying you're stupid, just that your perspective gains a certain amount of context when you've been around more than three decades or more.
Don't take my comments personal!
