    That's an awesomely clever insult and it only took you 1 edit to perfect it. Will i ever recover from it, i wonder. Time will tell

    You set the tone with your crappy OP Warcraft man. Maybe you have some YouTube clips of your imaginary online characters criticising selected Brexit supporters.

    Maybe you should call into O’Brien’s show and tell him how much you admire him, or even better call up Iain Dale and put him right about Brexit. Get that on video and you might have something worth listening to.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_O%27Brien_(broadcaster)

    James Edward O'Brien (born 13 January 1972) is a British journalist, television presenter, radio presenter, and podcaster. He is one of the presenters on talk station LBC, presenting on weekdays between 10 am and 1 pm, hosting a phone-in discussion of current affairs and news, views and real-life experiences. He ...[text shortened]... ow host that does the same? (I am not saying they don't exist, i genuinely would like some examples)
    What's kind of funny about this, though, is that he does something so bold and powerful in regards to supporting the default, popular position of British media and the British left.

    What a heroic journalist, dude.

    Imagine having those cajones.

    Most of us here are too intimidated to criticize Trump -- imagine how difficult it was to get the courage to take on some guy who called into the show, LIVE, on the AIR?

    He could've gotten fired.

    Cajones de l'acero, muchachos hombres.

    I think you should let others do sarcasm, you aren't very good at it.

    Supporting a popular idea isn't the point. He supports facts and he covers brexit as an issue of immediate concern for the British people.

    Can you attack any if the points he is making or do you want to mock him for not supporting a popular idea?(each is an inane point to raise)

    So cards on the table Waj, what do you need to call him out about?
    Thank you for the invitation to post this again sonhouse, while nothing to do with O'Brien it directly relates to zalooneys observation that O'Brien does not let people off the hook without an explanation.

    Here is the verbatim quote:

    "Where free market should come into play is when auctioning out the right to build a solar farm to the highest bidder.
    You get the point."


    I was 'calling out' zahlooney on his lack of understanding of the free market (which he often criticizes) when what he is proposing is a kind of socialism by stealth, in that farmers may own their farms (the means of production) in name only, that state takes quasi ownership of the farms then dictates how the farm may be used, he thinks that solar wind farms should be encouraged by banning them then selling the right back again.

    This is an important lesson for the liars here (for years kaka notion asserted I wanted to close hospitals but could never produce any quote or post to back his dream feelings), Another example: Zahlooney puts on some kind of fake anti-racist saint persona here yet he once started a thread expressing astonishment that a race of people should as individuals have different voting preferences. If he were to challenge me on this point I will gladly link back to that thread.

    He won't be off the hook, he'll just pretend it isn't there and continue merrily swimming on.

    Of course the word 'verbatim' should be redundant when using quotation marks but people around here like to make stuff up then use quote marks to power up their lies.

    You said that people ought not be able to harm others without their explicit consent. This implies a ban on hospitals as I explained previously. Do you retract your earlier statement that people ought not to be able to harm others without their explicit consent?

    James O'Brien was critical of Jacob Rees-Mogg for tweeting an article which has since been entirely corrected. An article described as "based upon either deliberate or accidental ignorance of an almost unbelievable scale" by James O'Brien listed the 'potential savings on a number of goods' if EU tariffs were removed after Brexit. The Conservative MP tweeted an image of the article, saying: "Thanks to the Sun for calculating the huge savings for us all outside the Customs Union." But the article has now been entirely corrected by The Sun.

    James O'Brien interviews ex soldier who changed his mind on Brexit

    When you make a decision you should have the relevant information. If after that you receive new information or it is proven the prior information was false, you are allowed and you should change your mind if it is warranted.
