Meacher Speaks


Michael Meacher, a faintly ludicrous man in an extremely ludicrous job (he is Britain’s environment minister) has announced that “we [presumably the Labour Party] do not believe in capitalism. Capitalism is something that threatens inequality across the whole of society.”

With its high taxes, intrusive regulations and relentless political correctness, Britain’s Labour government is quite obviously opposed to capitalism. It’s just that their leadership don’t like to admit it. Check out this blog at to see what happened next.
