Rocco: Oh, I Thought You Said Cannabis!

It’s a commonly heard complaint that libertarians are “out of touch”; we waste too much time on impractical, esoteric, theoretical points that “ordinary people” don’t care about. Worse, the things we say on the topics they do care about make us look crazy: “abolish the NHS”, “abolish the welfare state”, “abolish taxation”, etc, – this [...]

Rocco: Ed Miliband isn’t confused, his critics are confused. I was never confused!

This past fortnight I’ve been thinking about Ed Miliband. Thinking about his soulful eyes, smooth voice (his accent! OMG! So hot!), great body, and stylish cardigan.

This is insane. Absolutely insane. If the President of the Rapist’s Alliance (should such [...]

RGTyler: Road to 2015: Vote 2014

TWO Election Results and a Clear Message! I like many people stayed up on Thursday and Sunday night to see in the results of the Local and European Elections. And I have to admit that I wasn’t disappointed. The council elections have shown us that Labour are a weak opposition that is incapable of making the [...]
