Every now and again I think it worth mentioning that Socialism, the much loved political philosophy of the left, has been thoroughly tried and tested and failed at every turn.
If you have any doubt about this dear reader ask yourself a couple of simple questions.
Firstly on the everyday side of things: is there or has there ever been a sustainable Socialist economy that you would like to live in?
Secondly on the issues of fairness and diversity: has there ever been a Socialist infested state yet spawned from the devils gut that had a tinge of either?
Thought not. Please notice that I have politely stayed away from the gulags, executions, purges and genocides that routinely dot history and are doomed to be repeated unless the truth is told now and again.
Better dead than truly red.
