Modern conservative parties are essentially fascist....though they lack the historical understanding to see themselves that way. They aren't Hitler, after all! (As though that makes any difference).
I sometimes wonder if there's two Hootons. Van and Jethro.
I heard one on the wireless today. The MP was responding to criticism about the handling of the 1080 threat, by calling an expert, a “so called” expert. The PR consultant based politics is so insidious, I almost forgot that the expert was an actual expert, and the MP is a layperson.
Now can we please start going back to talking wind speed in knots not kilometers per hour?
