All your posts to him have sounded pretty personal to me.

It is ironic that the benefactors are those who created the problem in the first place. Hardly surprising, though.

The Grauniad is reporting that the Dutch government has collapsed, formal resignation at 2pm. The cabinet refused to back austerity budget presented by the prime minister. Holland has previously been hardline on inflicting austerity on Greece and all... Yeah... Such hypocrisy from the northern Euro...

Sleeper- I know that people of all colours and creeds are capable of murder, I'm just making the point that a tiny minority of racists use their views as an excuse to perpetrate violence against others up to and including murder. I get that nexus but targeting a specific group for a general activit...

You'll be back when you're sober. There is a clue in your writing, alcohol depresses the nervous system, stop drinking the stuff (it's toxic anyway) and you will be less depressed. In my experience it doesn't work like that. A bit of what you fancy when you're feeling low can help keep you going - ...

So do you think the Far Right get a bad press UE?

60 million people in the UK (without immigration) or 65 million (with immigration): what's the real difference when we have no oil? 5 million people. So will those 5 million fewer people avert social collapse? I don't think so. Play the ball, not the man. What has he actually said that isn't true? ...

Now...you can hate him for being a racist all day long, but make no mistake about who is telling the truth here and who isn't. If we're talking about the UK, then immigration (plus high birth rate amongst immigrants) really is the main driver of population growth (and it is senseless to talk about ...

There are many kinds of cuckoo land. Like the project manager/professional who was working for a local authority, and whose work was 'connected' to the deaths of several people. On gardening leave on full pay years later, with no sign of the situation being brought to any conclusion... Not sure thi...

Shows just how many people are living in cloud cuckoo land in Greece. We have a few equivalents: the people who turn down a job because they are better off on benefits: public servants who think their pensions are affordable by the rest of us: teachers who think they are doing a great job when ther...

Some of their (Tesco's) techniques are predatory to be sure. Until last year our town had a mid-sized co-op on the edge of town, and a co-op convenience store on the high street, and that was it. This of course allowed several independent food stores to thrive quite comfortably on the high street. ...

As a serious aside... Because most of our records are now digital, they will be lost. All the data from the end of the current civilisation will be as if it never existed. :( Yet there's probably more written down non-electronically than many ancient civilisations which fell had, though whether it'...

Let's face it, Tesco are really good at what they do, in the machiavellian sense :) They will be around for a good while longer, squeezing suppliers and providing customers with an illusion of "value" into the distant future. They will possibly become known as The Establishment Strategic ...

You didn't mention bleating and moaning, you simply accused him of placing "a [sic] ever greater burden on the worlds [sic] resources".
