Another interesting piece by Jim White, in the Telegraph, suffering the dreadful fate of being commented upon by an unrelenting mono-maniac, yours truly. Mr White posits that along with all the austerity measures that "normal" people are going to have to make in the next few years, local councils are going to be a bit less profligate too, and push less useless glossy magazines through our letter boxes. Well, I wasn't too sure about this point, while agreeing with most of the rest of what he had to say. Plus, I like to have a bit of fun every now and again, especially to avoid trying to explain central banking again, for the 101st time, to all those people on the Torygraph staff who think the "free market" has failed:

I wouldn't be so sure about the end of "free" council glossy magazines. Our lords and masters, in the ruling mafias of this country, pass all of their costs onto taxpayers, so why should they worry if the taxpayers are short a few quid? If the serfs won't pay up, they can be dragged down to the county court by the mafia Stasi boys in blue and then made to pay, at gunpoint, if necessary.
Actually, I think it's an outrage that you dare suggest that our glorious "public servants" should be made to suffer for the mistakes of the "evil" private sector. Why should they? It's not their fault now, is it?
No, they should keep their fat non-job salaries and even fatter final salary pensions, for doing little all day (when they're not having a duvet day) except harrassing the rest of us with their petty-fogging rules and taxes.
They deserve the very best for their endless dedication to themselves and their own pet whims, and their ability to retire at 50, along with their fat pensions, due to "stress". It's a hard life trying to appear to be busy when in fact doing nothing of any use whatsoever. I salute them, and all of their equality directives.
