Capitalism is not a bad thing and it generates progress, but as with all things there has to be some balance and control. I think the danger is that the these latter things are being forgotten about,...

I think the answer to this is that it has to be fair, but also workable. The two party system is seen as workable because it results in strong, undiluted, resolute government. Any amendments that...

That's perhaps a little bit optimistic, from a Labour supporters perspective? The exact percentages needed depend on how the Lib-Dems. SNP and UKIP do. Latest analysis, blunt though the instrument...

26 might be uncomfortably low but i believe that if you were to offer that to either Cameron or Miliband right now, both of them would snap your hand off.

Not absolutely. I'm saying there are degrees of error and that the charge you make, gross incompetence, is harsh and unfair because you make no allowance for extenuating circumstances.

I haven't seen The Killing but I liked Broadchurch. The Missing is even better I think. The topic is bleak and it never tries to diversify into inappropriate humour. Also I think that The Missing is...
