Margaret Thatcher and the Daily Mail
By 'right-wing' they usually mean the Daily Mail. When a leftard loses the argument he invariably blames the Daily Mail or Daily Mail readers. It's lazy in the extreme and extremely patronising towards a huge swathe of the population. When they are really desperate they hark back to the Mail's owner in the thirties who was sympathetic to Hitler's National Socialists. I wonder how these people react when they meet an actual German?
Then there is their pathological, obsessive hatred of Margaret Thatcher. I'm amazed the leftards haven't blamed Mrs Thatcher for the flash floods down south this week. Bear in mind Mrs Thatcher left office in 1990, 25 years ago. Now I was a young lad in 1970, 25 years after the end of World War II. I don't remember there being irrational hatred towards Germany in 1970 for bombing the shit out of us and slaughtering millions in the Holocaust. No, the Germans were forgiven pretty sharpish.
I can only repeat, yet again, that socialism is a form of mental illness.
