Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata quote of the day

“Richtie is the true Clausewitzian nightmare, an industrious idiot who never stops.”

– David Moore, commenting on an item by Tim Worstall, who fisks the absurd Richard Murphy.

    A common theme on Mr Worstall’s excellent blog, Mr Murphy does nothing but propose more tax even though everyone else agrees that more tax (rate) means less tax (income), and he often confuses (legal) tax avoidance with (illegal) tax evasion.

    The huddled masses, when they buy a lottery ticket or place a bet on the horses, are paying tax on the stake to avoid tax on the winnings, and Murphy thinks they are all as bad as rioter and looters.

    Samizdata quote of the day, I am very honored.

    I wish I could find even a trace of logic in Murphies arguments, but they elude me I’m afraid.

    I enjoyed the time I spent in the UK, but if guys like him hold sway I hold out little hope for that country. The home of liberty falling that far depresses me no end.
