Jacqui Smith (Miss Piggy) and accommodation expenses. We have to ask ourselves – do people really care any more?

David Davis

Guido does it best, but…

…..from the blog’s mud-begrimed, isolated and black-earthed fastness in Lancashire, I feel a wave of collective public ennui approaching. Not merely about Miss Piggy’s six-figure-claims for staying at her sister’s house (pretty rich and brass-necked I admit, even for a  Gramsco-Marxian) but about the entire notion that there is soemthing extraordinary about what these political scumbags are doing. (Tipped by The Landed Underclass.)

Perhaps politicians in the UK have got so much like African “big men” (whom they have always brown-nosed anyway) that they can’t help helping themselves to what’s in the Treasury, genuinely thinking that it’s their property. True, they haven’t got round yet to killing us and our male children, and then shagging our wives and daughters after burning our kraal and then eating our cattle, but I guess it’s only a matter of time.

But since most socialists have had their hands in the till since God was in short trousers, and most Tories have had their trousers down in the wrong woman’s bedroom for almost the same time, perhaps people have got innured to it.

All we can do is keep a log, and get the dosh back form the buggers when the time comes.

  • Hey come on now 1SL/CNSDavis, it makes perfect economic sense to me to fund and supply those in the civic representative way. Don’t get ate-up about peanuts, when the elephant eating them, or rather it’s stomp, carries a heavy weight. In proportion anyway, it’s nothing to the taxpayer.

    If David Deutsch is right, somewhere there’s a Steven Northwood arguing for Libertarian principles on a Communist blog.

    The truth in our world is that they both exist, but I prefer truth. And I love you guys, for giving me an education, foremost in command.


  • In the first instance, in Science, Only the Individual exists.

    (the sum-total of my readings of) Prof. Baron. Ludwig von Mises.

  • I ain’t read it all yet, hold fast shipmates

  • Steven:

    David Deutsch was extremely miffed when I presented Popper’s demolition of Everett’s “Many-Words” in his own conference, and they threw me out. Still, David Deutsch’s underlying theory (Everett’s) is “off the wall” — just more “Quantum Errancy.”

    Von Mises’ axiomatized deductive system is pseudo-science, according to Latsis and Lakatos. All theories must make novel falsifiable predictions, to be able to test the theory. Von Mises’ stuff is untestable. It’s another pseudo-science, alas.

    It is quite readable, however, as these Euclidean systems often are.

    I discussed with Pat Gunning and others the possiblity of reconfiguring Austrian School Economics into a Methodological Scientific Research Programme, hypothetical in character as opposed to axiomatized. Human beaviour is not geometry.

    Are you aware that von Mises specifically eulogized actual contemporary Fascism?



  • The quote is from Von Mises’ “Liberalism”, chapter 1 section 10:

    “It cannot be denied that Fascism and similar movements aiming at the
    establishment of dictatorships are full of the best intentions and that their intervention has, for the moment, saved European civilization. The merit that Fascism has thereby won for itself will
    live on eternally in history. But though its policy has brought salvation for the moment, it is not of the kind which could promise continued success. Fascism was an emergency makeshift. To view it as
    something more would be a fatal error.”




  • Tony, David Deutsch threw you out? You’re my hero!
