GUEST,albert Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing (218* d) RE: Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing 03 Aug 07

Reply to wld,
Nice to people??
In search of profit capitalism will do anything!!

Legal or illegal. It was born dripping blood and gore through slavery,rapid industrialisation and the confiscation of commonlands and Nicey nicey capitalism thought nothing of sticking kids underground or in mills for 12 hours a day.

It thought nothing of pushing the old or unemployed into workhouses while it built palaces and mansions for the rich and it thought nothing of unleashing war across the world to control raw materials and other resources...

And of course it was those wild eyed riff raff radicals and socialists who opposed them at every turn....

That bloody Marx in Soho writing his exposure of capitalism and showing it wasnt very nice and no armchair theorist he,a bloody agitator for the 10 hour day and active against the slave states in the American Civil War...

And those dissenters in Tolpuddle ...a rough crew swearing oaths and demanding trade union rights.Not at all nice said the judge as he taught them a lesson by sending them off to That Fatal shore called Australia.

And its not all in the distant past...look at the miners...were they not a rough crew led by a left wing agitator...demanding the right to work!

And now it is the postal workers fighting to stop the neo liberal tide and trying to save their jobs and working conditions from casualisation and privatisation Not nice.

They should be nicer! Like that nice Mr Murdoch and that very nice Haliburton or that sweet Kenneth Ley of Exxon or even those nice Russian oligarchs making a few bob or two in Russia.

But there again wasnt it those anti war sweethearts The Dixie Chicks who made an album called "No more nice" or something similar!?
