In Memory of Nelson Mandela
by The Darn-Poor Rhymer
 sub-topic» Politicians

I remember old Nelson Mandela,
I thought him a rather strange fella.
But the reason, one fears,
Was the twenty-seven years
That he spent locked away in a cellar.

Will Obama Lose His Nobel Peace Prize?
by The Sovereign Society
 sub-topic» Politicians

Think President Obama’s 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was a mistake?

Well, Stefan Svallfors, a Swedish sociology professor from Umeå University, certainly does. In fact, he has a better candidate for the prize: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The Legacy of Margaret Thatcher
by Sean Gabb
 sub-topic» Politicians

She virtually began the war on freedom of choice where smoking is concerned. She started the modern obsession with health and safety as an excuse for controlling our lives. She vastly expended state powers of supervision and control over parenting, and immensely expanded the numbers and powers of social workers.

She made the environmental nonsense politically fashionable. She was the first senior British politician to start wittering about climate change and ozone holes. She doubtless thought she was further stuffing the coal miners. In fact, she was a useful idiot for the ideology best suited to replace socialism as an excuse for Enemy Class domination.

Reasons to be grateful to Václav Klaus
by Luboš Motl
 sub-topic» Politicians

Klaus has been warning about many other undesirable trends in Europe – centralization, loss of democracy etc. – and the relevance of these warnings is getting obvious to most careful observers, too. People who don't like to overlook the obvious must have noticed how many important things have been foreseen by Klaus.

A taste of their own medicine
by The Devil's Kitchen
 sub-topic» Politicians

So, when this anonymous Labour MP whinges that his "financial integrity" is being questioned, my response is "well, whose fault is that? Cry me a fucking river."

And, given their plans to spy on everything we do, when this same anonymous Labour MP then asks...

"Why should they want this information, unless there's some indication that there is something amiss?"

... my reply involves motes, beams and "how the fuck do you like them apples, you totalitarian piece of shit?"

A Quick Question
by Don Boudreaux
 sub-topic» Politicians

And it will never dawn on any of these people who Oooo! and Ahhh! in the presence of a former president that if that mortal, who once sat at the big desk in the Oval Office, were really as magnificent and wonderful and smart and wise and productively creative as he and his handlers and party apologists made him out to be while he was in office, he is now nothing but a bum wasting his remarkable talents that could be used to found and operate a private firm (or multiple firms!) that actually puts to a genuine market test the ‘big’ ideas in which he expressed such assurance while spending other people’s money.

On the Vilification of Enoch Powell
by Sean Gabb
 sub-topic» Politicians

The public reason for why he is so hated by our modern ruling class is that he opposed mass-immigration and multiculturalism. Since the legitimising ideology of this ruling class is based on the claim that “diversity” is strength, and the threat of utter destruction for anyone who disagrees, his opposition might be sufficient reason for his being hated. Even so, much of the hatred rests on the envy of men and women who are themselves uneducated and illiterate and dishonourable and sordid and incompetent. Enoch Powell is hated in part because he dissented from the established view on immigration, but also because he was a shining example of what a statesman ought to be – and of what a statesman often approached to in this country before the present clique took over.

Let's get this David Laws issue right
by The Fat Bigot
 sub-topic» Politicians

Mr Laws chose to act dishonestly and in doing so he forfeited any right to have power over others. He should not still be in Parliament, for him to return to the cabinet would cast a serious blow against the fragile legitimacy of the current coalition government.
