Will Hutton is a fucking colossal waste of space but this does not, alas, stop him pontificating in the pages of the fucking Grauniad (in fact, being a pointless little shit with absolutely nothing of any interest to say is probably a requirement for writing for that fucking rag).
Suddenly, financial regulation, paying taxes and accepting norms of fairness have become the new common sense.
What? You are telling me that a bunch of economically-illiterate, soap-dodging arsewipes are now representative of the whole country, are you?
Fuck you, Hutton: the only reason that I wasn't there, putting the free-market side of the argument, was because—like most others on my side of the fence—I was at work, doing the fucking job that I am paid for. You stupid cunt.
Fairness was the common value to which all the G20 leaders, whether monarchs, dictators or democrats of left and right, could subscribe.
I'm sorry, Bill, but could you elaborate just what, precisely, fairness is? Well, I am not sure that I would like anyone dictating to me what it is, but I am pretty sure that politicians creaming off hundreds of thousands of pounds in fraudulent expenses whilst those in the productive sectors lose their jobs is not fair.
And yet it is those same politicians that you are praising. Why is that, Billy? Is it because you are a fucking stupid, fatuous cunt? Yes, it is.
Banks need to report more extensively and exhaustively on their operations—onshore and off-shore, including tax havens—and how their lending has created genuine economic value.
I see. So, Willy, I do hope that you will be reporting "more extensively and exhaustively" on the operations of your employers—the Guardian Media Group.
This includes GMG's operations "onshore and off-shore, including tax havens", with special reference to GMG's tax dodges (including the one that gave them a tax rebate of £800,000 on a profit of £300 million) and the deal with eMap, funnelled through a company in a Cayman Islands tax haven, that enabled GMG to dodge millions of pounds in Stamp Duty.
Plus, Will, in the spirit of "fairness", I expect you to report, at about this time next year, how your writing of total fucking bollocks has created genuine economic value.
You stupid, hypocritical cunt.
UPDATE: I communicated some of this in a comment below the relevant article.
