Brexit party plans 'John Lewis-style' rescue of British Steel

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... tish-steel

Apparently the Brexit Party wants to turn British Steel into a cooperative, while I'm not necessarily against the idea I don't see how it'll help anything.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

Pass the £1M a day debt on to the workers. Problem solved!

Stupid banana splits shouldn't have voted to strawberry float us all over in the first place.

I think the analysis shows that those are genuinely are old enough to have experienced the war are largely pro-EU it's the baby boomer bellsprouts who are the problem. Unfortunately there's strawberry floating loads of them.

There was a great description of those types of Brexit supporter on the news quiz a few weeks ago along the lines of ""The 60 to 70 year olds, who we should remember actually didn't fight in world war 2 but very much go on endlessly as if they did."

So many of the boomers talk like they fought in the war. I think they just feel inadequate that their parents fought actual evil while the boomers just hoarded all the wealth.

It’s a good cover but that bus is missing a “£350m to the NHS” slogan

The boomers take credit for their parents achiements and blame the following generations struggles on laziness, while they all enjoyed an easy ride building their wealth.

And the worst thing is, they seem intent on lighting a fuse and burning the place down before they strawberry float off.

In a way that generation are not entirely to blame. You have to remember that there are many older people in society who grew up in a time when socialism was basically under nationwide censorship. If you were lecturer and tried to teach your students about Marx you would kiss your career goodbye. As a result we have generations of people who have pretty much zero exposure to any political alternative to fundamentalist free market capitalism. If the only turns on the road you can see lead right then that's the direction you will go. And who is responsible for that? Why, the same generation that fought so admirably in WW2. No one is perfect.

In America maybe, but the UK was very socialist after WW2 up until Thatcher.

The WW2 generation built the NHS. The Boomer’s voted in Maggie and gave us Thatcherism.

Pat is so angry he can't even be bothered to lightly veneer his usual racist bile anymore.
