    Apology accepted.

    I am, in fact, teetotal.

    TBF the expenses racked up by TD's are small beer compared to the sums racked up by the parasitical spongers in Brussels.
    Juncker could give any dictator in the world a run from their money when it comes to leeching off the population he lords over.

    Put it on the Brexit bill: EU expenses row as it emerges Juncker spent £24,000 on private flight to Rome

    In 1970 Venezuela had a higher per capita income than Spain.

    Now it has 500% inflation, mass unemployment, malnutrition and political terror.

    Socialism, eh?

    That's only because the super rich landowning families in Venezuela skewed the statistics to an incredible extent. The truth is that in 1970, the vast majority of Venezuelans were far far poorer than they are today. As for political terror, the landowning Conquistador families could have any uppedy peasant murdered at will in 1970, and then tell jokes about it back at the Club later.

    Reminds me of Fidel Castro and his father, who used to beat and terrorize the workers on their plantation -
    until his 'leader of the revolution' career move and subsequent 'Socialist' flag of convenience!!:smiley:

    Poor old Telstar, he has a few shares in AIB after a lifetime of saving, and now he thinks he's in the Capitalist Club.

    It is not The Free Enterprise System anyway. Which is what made America great. We have here a socialist system of government redistribution. We see states and cities going down the drain. Illinois being the prime example.
