    Newcastle United football club is owned by a man with big ideas, but has become a disaster due to excessive spending on mediocre players, internal divisions, promotion of untrained managers and hopeless long term planning. Newcastle United is sponsored by –

    Norhtern Rock, which was run by a man with big ideas, who led his company into administration by excessive lending on mediocre properties, and who ignored warning of the risks associated with his policies. As a result, Northern Rock is now owned by –

    The Government, which is led by a man with big ideas, who has become a disaster due to excessive spending, promotion of mediocre people into senior positions, internal divisions and hopless long term planning.

    Northerners and jocks….

    One lots should stick to digging up coal and the other lot should stop drinking buckets of tonic wine for breakfast

    How come you could afford to feed a canary on state handouts?

    I had a little income on the side from blackmailing the local aristocrat, as I’d found out all about his little ‘secret’ :wink:

    State handouts exist in order to keep the capitalist system going.

    The banks and other financial institutions have just received 10s if not 100s of billions.

    Capitalism can’t exist without having proletarians whose labour power can be exploited.

    The handouts are there so that the proletariat can not only exist, but also reproduce, to keep the system going.

    Without the handouts, there would be civil strife and a revolution.

    Fine by me.
