Anyone who reads the Guardian is a Twat.

If you need a reason to punch* a lefty (and I don't) surely Polly Toynbee provides it with her sanctimonious drivel. She epitomises the left-wing view that all state spending is good especially if paid for by confiscatory taxation, and tax cuts are evil. She has a patronising and unpleasant assumption of moral superiority of the right of a state (only if run by people like her) to ban things of which they disaprove. She supports state funding of political parties (but only ones of which she approves, naturally) indicating a contempt for democracy. Her assumption that a well-heeled politican is nessesarily corrupt is horrible, and hardly likely to get the overachievers of society into politics. I want a camera pointed straight at her face when Cameron takes the Tories to a Landslide in the next election.

Worse even than Poly Toynbee is George Monbiot, whose striking ignorance of anything to to do with job or wealth creation should be clear even to the most doe-eyed of pinko idealists. I agree with everything he says about the ridiculous nature of the British and European Government's food subsidy policy, but he can't draw the obvious conclusion that state intervention in industry is counterproductive.

God, how i'd like to hit them both in the teeth with a lump hammer**.

Both talk about that last vestige of prejudice allowed to the Guardian-reading fuck-wit: Class. Both seem to hold the bizzare idea that privately educated people are unfit to hold office, especially if they don't atone for it by joining the Labour party and voting against anything which might enforce private sector standards of literacy, discipline and education on the public sector. Their support for the staggeringly illiberal banning of fox-hunting was a purely vindictive measure against "the Toffs" and had nothing to do with animal welfare. I could go on. So I will.

Both pander to the Guardian reader's prejudice against people who go and make things happen without the intervention of the state. They deride peoples natural desire to give a decent education to their children. They think it is wrong for a family to try to leave some cash or a home to help the offspring on their way. They think that all economic activity should come from and go to the government, not the family (who should be split and inspected to death) nor the private firm (who should be taxed and regulated to death)... Because it's "fairer".

Well it isn't fucking fair, and neither's life. Some people are born rich, pretty and intelligent and some are born poor, ugly and stupid. (Some born ugly and stupid have managed to make that pay). Some have parents who read to them, others have parents who inject smack between their toes. The state can't moderate for this gross dice-roll of fate, and any attempt the state makes, is so subject to the law of unintended consequences that it isn't worth the risk.

The Guardian-reader can't accept it is up to the individual and their family to make of life what they can out of whatever fate has thrown your way. It is not up to the state to make outcomes equal by thwarting the sucessful and cajoling the crap. Perhaps the lefty is so weak and unsure of their own abilities they feel the need of the blanket of nanny state? Perhaps they are so filled with envy and hate they can't bear to see anyone else doing well? Perhaps they are so arrogantly full of themselves that they think their solutions should be imposed on everyone? Whichever way, there's a virrulent mental illness at the heart of leftism and I wish the results weren't inflicted on me. I don't care, in my Shire fastness what you do in fucking Islington or the People's Republic of North Britain, leave me alone.

* I'm not actually advocating the punching of people on the basis of political views
** Nor am I advocating the hitting of their teeth with Lump hammers

Apparently, I'm a twat. I think that I can live with that for now.

MA: I'm sorry. I'm just letting off steam, you know I love you really and the Guardian's Cricket coverage is very good.
RC: Have I found someone who hates Gordon Brown more than me?

Perhaps - but Alec (Green Carpet) would give us both a run for our money!! He coined the term for Gordon I have now adopted: "The Stain".

Yes the Guardian sucks and is basically owned by the government through advertising. Toynbee is a Religious Marxist and Monbiot debates like an arrogant 15 year old, with all the critical thinking attributes of a pool of sick.

People don't read the Guardian to be informed as they may think. They read it to feel good.

Torygraph can suck my balls. Daily Muslims out, poles on dole, dianna the truth, mail/express? Mirror is the same mouth anus as the guardian and the sun will print anything that will sell.(Independant not worth mentioning).

to conclude papers have always been owned by people trying to force their opinion on everyone else.

Why not? Robert Mugabe does, and he is one of the few currently successful politicians in the world*

* - according to EU principles
