Love the line – “Higher taxes don’t redistribute wealth, they redistribute people”.

    One thing higher taxes don’t redistribute is bludgers.

    They just sit parked on their fat arses, hand out for the next gimme.

    “we would be like the Soviet Union even more so” vis wealth

    That’s the money line to me. Love this guy.

  3. I love this guy too, but check out his blog, he surprisingly cops heaps from his own supporters. Not from his stances, but for tolerating Cameron’s weasely politics and EU sympathies.

    It’s good to see that there is still bite in the British bulldog.

  4. That said, is David Cameron the Malcolm Turnbull of British politics?

    He’s more the kevin rudd of british politics.

    Same obsequious demeanour and overweening narccissism.

    “Just like the Soviet Union, only more so….”

    That line is just so apt in describing the EU and UN, not to mention the Rudd/Gillard thought bubble, Slush fund style Economics here in Australia.

    I like listening to Daniel Hannan. His good sense is accented to perfection.

    Daniel Hannan needs to be PM of Britain. He is what they need. Who else would cut their government to the size it needs to be without worrying about the accompanying unpopularity (which would only be short term anyway)?

    And more from Dan The European Union a “Syphilitic structural core

    Went to see Dan Hannan when he came to Australia last year. Great speaker — his triple-D solution for the European monetary crisis is devalue, decouple and default. Iceland did it, maybe the PIGS should all default I sure the gnomes wouldn’t like it one bit.

    Peas in a pod. Cameron had the childhood and schooling Malcolm longed for, Malcolm had the career Cameron wished for. Faux conservative interlopers sent from hell to rain evil upon us.

    We’ve watched Britain let the canary choke to death. Mad if we repeat it.

    Hannan is probably my second favourite politician out of the current lot worldwide (the first being, by a very long stretch, Boris Johnson).

    Only thing is, whenever I see these clips of Hannan speaking, all the other seats are empty. Do the other MEP’s not bother turning up?

    … triple-D solution for the European monetary crisis is devalue, decouple and default.

    At least you can be confident that the “default” part is happening. Eventually of course the “devalue” part must necessarily follow that.

  12. Papa, the other MEPs are having the equivalent of pupil free days.

    He speaks a multitude of languages….

    That’s great!!

    Why our political class is so lacking in being global citizens never ever, ceases to amaze me…..
