Opinion – Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems | Books | The Guardian – George Mobiot – Top Blogs Revisited

I’m reblogging this popular blog because neoliberalism is once again under attack in muddled left-wing argument. Left-wing writers fail to address productivity, skills, investment and financing a larger public sector, especially in the UK, with a smaller national cake post Brexit. Conservative politicians are guilty too, forgetting the successes of Reagan and Thatcher on the back of neoliberal intervention. Now conservative politicians prefer the discredited ‘traditional conservatism‘ or the flaky platform of the neocons.

Surely, it’s time for conservative politicians to stop sitting on their hands? If they don’t have the qualities needed, perhaps it’s time to move aside and give the youngsters a chance?

Don’t they have ‘chicken jokes’ in North America? Certainly not the ‘chlorinated chicken jokes’ according to this excellent article published in the EUobserver. It reports that Britain has only just started on the path towards a post-Brexit trade deal with the US, but you can already see the same all-too-familiar disagreements.

Prognosis: it looks like ‘Brits’ will soon all be eating ‘chlorinated chicken’, unless they become vegetarian or vegan.
