Love a bloody duck! Just take some time to read this. "If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you've got no brain" The journey of a blogger who has found his road to Damascus. Once someone who indulged in 'old ideologies'.. a man who has not only grown out of the 'old ideologies, but a man who has 'cast the scales' from his eyes' and matured politically, emotionally and intellectually. A man who, let's face it... has been saved. Yes, there may still be some of you out there with the scales still covering your eyes, who have failed to understand what Longrider's 'vision' has shown him: Capitalism Works. OK, there's starvation and aching poverty throughout the world, but a little of that BT efficiency applied to all those third world GPO's out there will soon put that right. After a stunning observation about.... "The mass graves on the battlefields of Europe remain forever a corner of Britain", Longrider saves his last cliche ridden piece of nonsense for Winston Churchill, who's journey through life brought him to the exact point in history as Longrider himself: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
Chuffin' hell. Two years now I've been writing and reading blogs which often amount to complete cobblers, but this takes the biscuit. Whatever opprobrium we heap on our leaders, may they never adopt such a painfully patronising and cliche ridden load of crap upon us (not even when they feel the hand of history on their shoulder).
In a comment on his own post, Longrider asks: why am I here? What do I believe? And why? Go on, figure that out. It beats me.
