OWEN JONES MEETS MHAIRI BLACK

34 comments:

  1. Mhairi is only a few years older than my oldest granddaughter, and gives me so much hope for, and pride in, the young people of our country.

    A future First Minister!

    1. Absolutely.

      She is so real, so intelligent and so able.

      If this is her at 21 then we have a possible first minister sitting there with Owen Jones.

    2. Well I want Mhairi as our Prime Minister, we have a First Minister only now to differentiate between PM in London when Mhairi is elected to high office we will be independent. Helena

    3. Yes, I suppose that's why the different name, but you know, in many countries the head of government is the "first" minister. Manuel Valls is Premier (First) Ministre of France.

      You could say in English that First and Prime could be synonyms.

      PRIME:

      adjective

      of first importance; main.
      "a nurse's prime concern is the well-being of the patient"

      synonyms: main, chief, key, primary, central, principal, foremost, first, most important, paramount, major, dominant, supreme, overriding, cardinal, pre-eminent, ultimate;

      But I agree that Mhairi in time will make a first rate first, chief or prime minister, whichever we decide to have.

    1. Dean, you comment is either tongue in cheek or extremely churlish. Which?

    2. Ah the Tory rears his head, you'd rather take from the poor and the disabled, and give tax breaks to the rich.

      Do you not realise, your party and it's ideology, is what has lead to the vast deficit, and thus the debt.

      Selling the utility companies, whose vast profits flow out of the country instead of into the public coffers.

      Failure to invest in the steel industry, which was world renowned, now we import alleged cheap steel; not so cheap when welfare payments to the unemployed workers are taken into account.

      Destroying the mining industry, an act of revenge and nothing more, then importing coal that cost more. In the process, destroying whole communities.

      I used to work for Scottish Power, I had to go to ex-mining communities, such as Patna, and cut the supply to whole streets; as no-one, NO-ONE lived there anymore, familial ties and friendships torn asunder, ties to the community and place shattered never to be repaired, with the glue of a common experience.

      In the end Dean, money isn't everything; it is as transitory and fleeting, as is life. It is better to help our fellow human, not stand on their backs for the sake of a few pennies in the pound, for that is the amounts most people would be receiving. Only the very rich will gain any meaningful amount, but to them pocket change.

      You are welcome to your ideology, but Dean; shove it up your arse!

    3. Maybe you could elaborate Dean?

    4. Take your hyphen Dean , and shove it.

    5. I'd be happy with an explanation.

      I just can't understand what the complaint is about.

    They carried or wore , glasses etc Gold teeth were especially valued its the the kind of
    stats the English conservatives are starting to follow as a guide

    1. Have you seen that even some Tories are baulking at Gidiot's latest wheeze to take up to £3000 from the sick/disables?

      Of course that may have something to do with the fact that a lot of them have been asked to resign/been sacked as patrons of charities for the disabled.

      Massive insult.

    2. Disturbing reading, Niko. I don't think the Tories are quite at that stage, though you cash draw comparisons.
      It is the anonymous pen pushers, that enable evil men to do their evil work, then as now.

    1. An old punk(as you could see in my wee picture thingy), some of those bands really made you think, of man's inhumanity to man, it's always stayed with me.

      Entropy is the way of things, but to screw your fellow man for an extra bit of cash, is bloody crazy.

      We get one chance at life, it is better to help build a better society, than to build a bigger bank balance.

      Having experienced Thatcher and her ideology, then the red Tory Blair, I have no time for Tories of any shade, especially those claiming to be working class.
      Working class, is not about where you're from or the job you do, it is an attitude. United against those that would oppress us, not become one of them.

  6. I see our Guardian Journalist had help to reinforce the notion that SNP is a cult - the pictures of the cheering yellow berry group at Spring conference. Why was that?

    You can bet that there would never be an equivalent scenes if he were inteviewing a Tory MP.

    Most Tory voters will fixate on those scenes and will not hear what Mhairi Black has to say.

    1. In fairness, I can't really see any Tories listening to Mhairi or for that matter, 'Corbynisto', Owen.

  7. Mhairi, you make sound sense. Why would Scotland vote for Labour when we've got MPs like you!

    1. I agree.

      One of the most sensible MPs in the Commons, with, for all her 21 years a lot more common sense than some who hae been there for twice as long as she's lived!

  8. OT folks. Just got an email purporting to be from HMRC saying that I was due a rebate, but I had to create something called a 'gateway account' so my money could be paid into it. They seriously let themselves down, though, when they spelled 'electronically' with four "L's"...

    1. Ha ha...

      I laugh, but it's not in the least funny. It's bloody wicked what people do hoping to find someone vulnerable to scone them out of money.

      HMRC write letters. I've just had a letter from them changing my tax code!

      They don't, as far as I know, email. Indeed it isn't long since they stopped using carrier pigeons!

    1. I think he's good. He writes well too.

      I see Hothershall had a go at him on Twitter for looking like he was agreeing with Mhairi.

      Seriously, how desperate are they now?
