    yeah but everyone is nice. It's just that like all things that niceness is selective.

    Truly malignant people are rare.

    As much as I brand tories devils for not giving a shit about poor people, not a day goes by when I don't walk past multiple homeless people on the way to work with close to zero care in the world - I might think about them for thirty seconds before I completely forget about them. Moments later I'm buying my overpriced imported coffee and browsing Amazon on my smartphone.

    From their POV I'm Jacob Rees-Mogg. In fact, perhaps more contemptible, with my half-hearted liberal guilt.

    I'd like to know more about Woebot's Eton experiences, btw.

    I'd also like to know David Cameron's 100 greatest records ever.

    Youre not responsible for the system, you dont profit off their misery. Thats the difference.

    Bemused.
    I think even next to Blair's unrepentant war-lust and May's seemingly limitless incompetence and pusillanimity, Cameron will go down in history (or perhaps already has) as The Man Who Fucked It All Up. He deserves even more blame than Johnson, whom he can only have known would have used the referendum to further his own career with fuck all consideration of the consequences for the country.

    I mean, until two years ago it was at least conceivable that Labour would eventually rally, that Corbyn would either soften his anti-EU stance in response to pressure from the Europhile majority of Labour MPs or simply be replaced as leader, and that even with the Tory papers doing their usual thing, public antipathy to endless grinding austerity, attacks on the NHS, the Windrush awfulness etc. might have led to a Labour victory in 2020 and at least started to pull the country out of the doldrums. But now? We're not in the doldrums any more, we're in a fucking nosedive. Just totally hopeless.

    Yup, and it's GDP, not personal income. My guess would be the richest region in the UK on this definition is the five boroughs of Inner West London plus the City, where far more people work (creating GDP) than live (with personal income). I don't know what the richest region of France is but my bet is it isn't defined as a tiny part of Paris where all the jobs are.

    It's not to say the UK isn't economically unequal but it's nothing like as bad as that.
