Guess Who

This letter, believe it or not, was written by election-losing Aussie moonbat Mark Latham. It's scary when other people's loons make more sense than our own alleged Conservative Party. Here's a sample (but you should read the whole thing):

Your correspondence repeatedly refers to social justice but at no stage does it seek to ground this concept in any kind of factual analysis. Anyone can claim to be principled and compassionate. But if these are nothing more than abstract concepts, removed from real-life circumstances, they are unlikely to have a tangible impact on people's lives. They will lapse into the politics of symbolism...

In my experience, the strongest supporters of the rights agenda are those who do not have to face the daily consequences of irresponsible behaviour. They have the resources to buy themselves away from social problems, to purchase private security, private education, private health insurance and private transport. This gives them the luxury of being able to talk about human rights without the need for social responsibility
