  • Unfortunately, this news has come at the time of the International break. Not unsurprisingly Premier League clubs have raised concerns. Their cosy ‘closed shop’ arrangement by the likes of Manchester United* Financial Fair Play (FFP) (*using their position on UEFA) to stop wealthy owners buying a Premier League club, then financial doping them, another Chelsea. Lay in tatters. *Irony is lost on idiots.
    Manchester United couldn’t careless about the then “level playing field”, that’s exactly what their owner did, opening the floodgate! Manchester United didn’t care about the so-called ‘level playing field’ being smashed, because it benefited them, now they’re crying because the very thing they did (Financial doping)has come back to bite them.
    Schadenfreude then.
    We saw this recently with Manchester United fans (seemingly with the aid of staff) run riot on the pitch at Old Trafford, calling for the heads of the owners, for not investing in the team…the reason for the teams silverware drought.
    The owners responded with offers of talks with fan representatives, and pledging spending money on the team. Singling their intent by buying Jadon Sancho, for £50m and Raphaël Varane for £34.2m

Pleased that this month’s Socialist Standard covers The Tigray Tragedy

MATERIAL WORLD

The Tigray Tragedy
‘Ethiopia has 110 million people. If the tensions in Ethiopia would result in a widespread civil conflict that goes beyond Tigray, Syria will look like child’s play by comparison’ – Jeffrey Feltman, US special envoy for the Horn of Africa.

“1% of people cause 50% of aviation pollution”

Farnborough airport has 30,000 private flights a year, each with an average of 2.3 passengers, each passenger responsible for emitting 20x more carbon than passengers on an economy flight to🇪🇸

Farnborough airport has permission to expand to 50,000 private flights a year 😱

Just seen this:Wayne Couzens sentencing live Sarah Everards killer in Court for her kidnap , rape and murder.

Couzens nickname in the Police force was “the rapist” by officers who worked with him!

To add, a number of people want her gone…..seems she has another 2 years as Head of the Met. Because many believe a lot of the failings of the Met have been on her watch/2nd in command!
Levi Bellfield – serial killer
The Steven Lawrence Case…
And numerous other serious high profile cases of Police failings, leading to a scores of victims!

The fact is… unfortunately for TrueScotsman

When a worker has a basic understanding of what we say, any attack has the opposite effect. I know this from my own experience.

Must try harder TS.

“And this is why nobody likes you. You’re a hateful and irrelevant little clique of naval gazers.”

You of course have a citation (obviously not the CPC lol) for this? Or is it a another made up lie…seems to be a recurring theme with you.

How many people are you talking about? Actual names, numbers to back up your very dubious claim.

It seems that you have more infantile bile against us, than for capitalism itself. Just a thought. If China is so good why not live there? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Clearly, you’d be well at home with 91m communists, to boot!
Oh wait…
Unfortunately, as Marxists we do not say what you want to hear. That’s how Socialists/SPGB works. Deal with it.

Care to eat your words now TrueScotsman or would you prefer to do so after lunch?

Have you ever played football and headed the ball too much?

PS. I have to say, people who are starving don’t make good revolutionaries…Silver lining maybe?

Oh dear. 91m communists/socialists? Communist and Socialist mean the same thing. Ffs! Both are interchangeable*.
Membership of the CPC is a meal ticket for a good job, housing etc. Keep up.
Millions vote Labour, millions are in trade unions, doesn’t mean they’re Communist/Socialist…far from it! Most Labour voters and members of trade unions are racist, bigoted, homophobic, sexist, anti working class…hate the unemployed…many now vote Tory! Keep up!

Not to mention the fact that China is a one party capitalist state!
So you’ve just our resident witless interlocutor.
Tell me you don’t understand communism/socialism without telling me.
Don’t thank me

*We refer to ourselves as Socialists, because China, Russia et al, have dragged “communism” through the mud backwards.

“There are 90 million Socialists in China”

Another lie, one of many it seems.

No evidence to back this up and no context?
I could fill in the missing gaps, have stab in the dark?
