Perspective? Please?

Share This

What kind of a world do we live in where John Howard can be winning a poll as the “worst abuser of democracy” over Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by a factor of 7:1?

I have no brief for Howard, who is extremely bad news and bears considerable responsibility for the riots currently going on in his country. But come on!

It is desperately sad that the Left has degenerated into two factions: one that thinks that Tony Blair is as bad as Hitler and the other that thinks that George Bush is the Second Coming. Anyone who fits anywhere between the two stools is dismissed as that worst of all possible worlds, a liberal.

Socialism has never been more irrelevant than it is now.

  1. I didn’t say he was responsible, I said he bore considerable responsibility. He’s spent much of the past decade running a populist campaign against immigration and pretending that somehow his words and actions somehow exist in a vacuum is real Flat Earth Society stuff.

  2. Surely if he bears responsibility he has to be responsible? Now I’m not pretending what he does exists in a vacuum, I’m just intrigued as to how you link his policies and such attacks. What’s the causation?

  3. If you create an atmosphere that immigration is dangerous, that immigrants and refugees are sponging from the state and wrap yourself in the flag, you can’t be surprised if people take that as a green light to go further.
