I see John #McDonnell in Sunday Times repeating claim that #renationalisation of water etc will have no net cost because gov't will be acquiring an asset to offset increase in debt. This isn't completely daft, but (you knew they'd be a but)... (1/2)
... it assumes i) renationalised assets keep their value (would they, if water is run by the GMB?), and ii) there is no other collateral damage (John McDonnell's plan to pay far less than market value would hit investor confidence hard). (2/2)
Ps. more on #water specifically here...

Why is it the Tories make the case for true conservatism so hard, especially in the time of #Corbyn and #McDonnell the rise and stupidity of the extreme Far Left it should be the easiest time for them to do it? #TheBattleforBrexit Thread 1/10
When I was younger, the Conservatives were the party of aspiration, law and order people if they wanted to improve their lot in life voted Conservative, you wanted a small state and low taxes and if you worked hard you were successful. 2/10
If you were lazy, feckless or belonged to a union and had no real ambition then you voted Labour because you wanted a big, nanny state because you were someone who wanted to be infantilized and never grow up because you were incapable of taking care of yourself. 3/10

As yesterday was Israel’s National holocaust memorial day where six million Jews were sent to their deaths, it seems appropriate to write a thread explaining both the real #FarRight and the #FarLeft in Britain and their obsession with the Jews. 1/17
Why have #Labour under #Corbyn got so much in common with the #BNP under #NickGriffin that both he and the Daily Stormer have endorsed the #Labour Party? They must undoubtedly now be the broadest of broad churches. 2/17
Most of my followers will have heard of the horseshoe theory. The theory is both the #FarLeft and #FarRight at the extremes are so alike they almost touch. Both are totalitarian, authoritarian, anti-Semetic and hate filled. 3/17
