This from Martin Kelly today:
Melanie Reid is a member of the elite, and all elitists share two defining characteristics - they want to stay elitists regardless of the consequences to other people, and boy, do they like being served.
Melanie Reid, forever to be remembered as the journalist who published an article praising the Taliban on the morning of 9/11, has a commentary in 'The Times' calling for the introduction of compulsory voluntary service.
Although she is probably unaware of it, what Reid is calling for is not a greater ethic of service but the introduction of 'robot'; the unpaid labour which the German nobles imposed upon the people as a reaction to the economic devastation caused by the Thirty Years War. This is a strain of thought which is very dangerous to the continued liberty of the British people; she might not think so, but what she is calling for is serfdom.
I have no problem in working for and even serving someone I can respect but these incompetent bozos of limited intellect who set themselves up as an elite and give themselves airs - they can get knotted. More than that - their names are on these bullets.
