I suspect his publicist is the smarter of the two, but who can tell?

Well, it's an obvious issue. Do we really want London taken over by mafiosi and justice/tax-dodgers?

No. but is Brand going to stop that? Your defence of this odious parasite is starting to make you look silly.

Sackerson said...

I;ve had a go at him myself, more than once. But there's a media concert party on his case at the moment. And I don't mind if you think I'm silly. I've been called much worse in teaching.

P.S. Where on the pyramid does this exchange come?

I think Brand has come across a credible issue by accident rather than by design.

The bigger picture is two-fold in London.

On the one hand we have foreign investment trusts purchasing large quantities of London property, distorting the market in one way.

Then on the other hand we have 26% of London households on housing benefit which distorts the market further and supports the values of the investment portfolios.

The result is London has become a toxic mix of super-rich, empty investment portfolios and dirt-poor migrants on benefits.

Hard-working middle-class tax-payers can go fuck themselves while they support all this pyramid on pain of prison.

I don't see Brand talking about them, do you?

Sackerson said...

Hi Wolfie. Didn't know that about investment trusts. I wonder if Brand is going to get educated in his bid to be a political activist?

Merry Christmas!
