    One of the few US comedians who could ad lib as well as the Poms. My favourite memory was Rickles going up to President Regan during a celebrity roast and asking him if he was ‘awake’ . Sadly unbeknown to most of us he wasn’t.

    not a bad definition of a neo-liberal…

    “Neoliberalism is a self-serving racket that exempts billionaires and large corporations from the constraints of democracy, from paying their taxes, from not polluting, from having to pay fair wages, from not exploiting their workers” – George Monbiot

    Just to stir the pot a bit, this has been doing the rounds as a counter to the anti-Muslim sentiment growing in the West…probably a reasonable enough comeback to give pause for thought?


    [Qasim] Rashid gets harassed on the internet by anti-Muslim a-holes on the regular. One of them, who was likely quite proud of this “hot take,” asked him

    “Where’s the Christian version of ISIS and every other religion then?”

    Rashid replied with thousands of years of receipts known as World History.

      Its an easy post to critique….but I will allow it to add some balance to the debate. Someone else can take it apart.

      BTW…I’m not anti Muslim. I just don’t want them or their poxxy religion in my country. I also agree with Gezza….the West needs to get out of Muslim countries. They need us, we don’t need them.
