Mystic Marxists Do Defence

Interesting coincidence on this Wednesday’s Jeremy Whine Show on Radio 2. The first hour was spent discussing the renewal of Trident and Zimbabwe. Hey, it’s great that it’s now legal to call Mugabe a scumbag, but it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the Left’s argument against Son Of Trident.

After all, Mugabe’s misrule of Zim has lasted nearly thirty years – more or less the same as the projected life of this new system. Libs claim they can absolutely guarantee that at no time will we ever need this new system, but how long did it take them to realise that, actually, Mugabe was nuts just like those fascists on the Right always said he was ? Up to the turn of the century, Libs were arguing that Mugabe might play a little rough, but he was basically a good hearted sort. If they can’t spot a twenty-four carrot loon like that, why should we give any credibility to the rest of their analysis ?

Funnily enough, the day after the main topic was the Olympics and yes, despite some quibbling over costing, no one questioned whether or not the country really needed to spend 25 billion on two weeks of running around and throwing things.
