I am now happy to concede that the leading lights of modern capitalism are the more deserving of the label 'thieving bastards' than anyone else alive. In a month in which people such as myself have received the kind of bail-out that I have refused to countenance for others who are less advantaged than ourselves, I am now willing to concede that I am - and have for a long time been - a worthless cheating parasite of the highest order.
If the families of the unemployed have suffered terribly over the years for their relatively minor lack of responsibility or good judgement, then in a fair world, I would be spending the next couple of decades up to my eyeballs in raw sewage for the wanton irresponsibility and stupidity that I have long advocated.
Paulie over at Never Trust a Hippy offers a one-size-fits-all apology for those free marketeers who have long since advocated the destruction of the safety net for the poor, but have suddenly realised the vital importance of a safety net for the rich.
And guess who's paying?!!?!?!?!?!?
All of us in a small way. American taxpayers in particular (well, at least that means Littlejohn) but sadly also those whose social security will no doubt be scythed in future in order to afford the bail-out.
