The Alternative (To Reality)

Three questions raised by the"give us more of your money" protests yesterday:
  1. Did Ed Miliband really compare the protests to the civil rights movement in the USA and the anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa?
  2. Really?
  3. Is the violence of the protesters related to the apocolyptic rhetoric being used to describe the cuts in some quarters.
  4. How come none of the protesters want to talk about who made the cuts necessary in the first place?

1) Yes.

2) Yes. Really.

3) Yes, as they planned it.

4) Hang on, thought it was three questions?

Oh I got carried away. Actually I just forgot that I'd added "Really?" as the second question.

James Higham said...

N4 - yes.

Matthew said...

He did, but then again 'deficit denier', presumably designed to invoke 'Holocaust denier', is hardly restrained.

Ross said...

True, but that's aping the "Global Warming Denier" schtick that's been around for years.
