This is great, two for the price of one stuff. Not only does he not appreciate the difference between judiciaries (unelected) and legislatures (which should be elected). Or that you should except membership rules while you're a member of a club- no doubt Tebbit's made the same point about some EU members at some point. But he's added a comment upon the comments made:http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/norma ... the-lords/
Reading the comments on my blogs I am often all but overcome by compassion for so many of my critics. They must surely be victims of some sickness which compels them to read my blogs, which they hate, but are attracted to like moths to a flame. Then they binge on their hate, spewing ignorance and bile until their paroxysms of petulance, ignorance and rage are over until next week. Poor creatures, I think: they are in need of help.
Yep, the unpleasant ones are those lefties! No hate spewed by the people who like him. None at all. And posting on a blog you don't agree with is apparently a sickness.
As an example, he picks out two excellent (and perfectly civil posters):
Of course gilzean and schoolswot blamed Thatcher both for what happened in America as well as the Blair/Brown banking regulation here
Knowing Schoolswot's posts (offline at the moment), what he does repeatedly is point out that Thatcher undid the UK equivalent of the Glass-Steagall Act (as part of Big Bang), and how difficult it would have been to restore the separation between commercial and banks. And that the prospect of losing business to London might have been part of the US motivation in doing the same.
Yeah, real frothing at the mouth rubbish.
