Lefty Argument Clinic

It's a mystery how the Smartest People In The Room keep driving off cliffs.

Admittedly, not as much of a mystery as how many copies of alleged publishing monster hit 'Chavs' were actually sold, but it's still an interesting question anyway.

Actually, on second thoughts, no it isn't. It's just two sides of the same coin. We're assured Owen is da voice of da yoof - even though there's no evidence da yoof - or anyone else - is buying it, either literally or figuratively. Ditto, we're assured that Owen and pals are radical intellectuals, smashing the cosy concensus of us tabloid-addled drones even though... well, you know:
an argument is an intellectual process, while contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says
Nope, that pretty much is most lefty arguments. Us knuckle-draggers say something and wild'n'wacky rebel tigers like Owen No-Figures say the opposite.

Take that you Mail reading white trash!

Making sense is an optional extra - the main point is the Owen and pals really, really hate low-income whites with ideas above their station.

Outrage D'Jour: My Pension Fund Went To India And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt

At least Brown only robbed a chunk of your pension. Now Gideon wants the rest.

Yes, indeed, it's the opportunity to invest into infrastructure projects - and you know it must be good because, by defnition, these are projects no one in the private sector will touch.

No, wait..... that can't be right.

Say, you don't think there's a potential for corruption when big companies are being invited to invest their pension funds into supporting vanity projects proposed by the self-same politicians who award large government contracts?
