The time to go's long overdue You should have died (& quick) the day you lied about souls true was the vilest type of sick. #dontbuythesun

@Aaron Bastani @Wayne Rooney @Matt Hancock .Working class lads for the most part, dedicate their lives to a sport that for some of them they earn a great deal of money for 10 yrs or so, meantime the huge wealth & earnings of the financiers, bankers etc, often inherited is ignored. Wonder why that is eh ?

@Neil Henderson The disintegration & bankruptcy of mainstream media and news papers (if it occurs) might actually be very positive for our society, for it has turned for most part into a disinformation propaganda machine that routinely misrepresents facts while serving narrow economic interests.

@Time for Change @simon maginn I never realised what absolute charlatans they were. They thought they could safely argue for a fairer system knowing it would never happen, but when Jeremy made it seem a possibility, their bluff was called and then we saw they would rather have fascism than socialism.
