Agreed, its almost as if we divided everything into "left!" and "right!" you could come up with examples of things that used to be left wing viewpoints in a different period of time are now right wing viewpoints and vice versa.No I don’t think people understand economics. They take a liberal standpoint thinking it’s left wing and not understanding it’s a right wing economic idea.
The daft thing is it's generally only Britain who even adopt daft laws, go to Italy or Spain and even simple rules like not jumping a red light are broken at glee. We had a race with Italian police a few years ago, we had an ex-riot van, one of those DAF ones with a big V8 in it blasting down an Italian motorway and the cops were fucking racing us, laughing their tits off in their shitty little Fiat. Imagine our police in a situation like that, nope it's all by the book.No, If the EU passed a law that said every English person had walk around of all fours for the next 10 years, we'd have to. Becuase it would be against the law not to.
