We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

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

“Loaned into existence …”

I link a lot to the sayings and doings of Steve Baker MP (that being the last time I mentioned him here), so this time I will be brief, and only say that I like the phrase “new money being loaned into existence”. The piece this phrase appears in is entitled Could this be a second crisis of state socialism? If you are already saying to yourself something along the lines of: “yes I rather think it could be”, you will, you will be unamazed to learn, find yourself in agreement with Mr Baker.

    Steve Baker MP is so spot on it’s a miracle the High Wycombe conservative party chose him as there candidate. I thought the entire point of the Party System and Parliamentary Democracy was to keep people who actually oppose the status quo away from the levers of power.

  • They have to have one or two ‘mavericks’ in the house to give people the idea that they’re not all power hungry ego-maniacs.

    Graham Stringer does the job for Labour I believe.
