I was referring to those espousing the abolition of the monarchy, and who have usurped a position of mine which I never knew I held.
Hope I'm not one then
The general theme that the "Loony Left" label suggested was twofold: Labour Party local government authorities were perceived to be:
- irrationally obsessed with minority and fringe issues,
- paranoid about racial and sexual "problems" that are wholly imaginary on their parts and that have no real existence.
From the Wiki page:
It's certainly a possibility.
I wouldn't call domestic violence and women not allowed to participate in the financial market for small and unimportant issues. It is thinking it is a non existent problem that makes it grow and worsen.
Not today, no, but domestic violence won't become a real issue here for a decade or so. As for the thing about stock brokers, I don't imagine it is on anyone's minds.
The phenomenon has as much to do with problem identification as to do with the proposed solutions for said problems.
No one, but the ones who cared about it and tried to advocate it. Remember that these issues were brought up during the 40's and 30's.
I think we've found a closet Keynesian!
By a minority, yes.
I'm not saying the issues don't exist. I'm just saying that the wide scale awareness (and therefore public acceptance) isn't there yet.
