Greens Foolish or Evil ?

Brighton, yeuch. Horrible shopping trips, silly white people with dreads and worst of all Caroline Lucas.
How can they vote for her? In loopy Lucas economics we should ditch international competition and replace it with cooperation. Leaving aside the world government required (eeek), competition is exactly how we do cooperate. Its called comparative advantage and goes like this. You`re good at eggs, I`m Mr. Bacon, so lets swap a bit and, break our fast !
In nutty cutlet land wind power is good because, wait for it, it employs more people. Genius, why not have elastic band power and employ the whole country in twisting jobs . Such jobs are costs , costs be bad.
Daddy sent little Caroline to St. Posh private school in Malvern where she supported the murderous militiary dictatorhsip of the USSR at Greenham Common. Then she spent about fifty years doing degrees in Eng Lit about wimmin before gaining a first class layabout award.
She enjoys the Western woman`s right to get stoned and commit adultery but consorts with Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi who thinks adulterous women should be stoned .Not in the same way.
That she supports a boycott of Israel confirms ones worst fears about the moon-bats loose in her noggin. Thank god the Greens went backwards at the GE and polled less than the BNP at about 1%. Pitiful.
Let us hope they stay a Brighton thing ie irrelevant.

I have to admire you Newmania for coming here so often to share your embarrassing ignorance. Keep it up.

Bit of both I think

I think Newmania is actually a lefty/green type playing a very cunning game. He spouts views so ludicrously ill-informed that any right-thinking person will oppose them, thus creating more support for that which he claims to despise.
On the other hand, he might just be a complete nutter.

Neither. What stupid alternatives.

newmania has a very flowery descriptive turn of phrase which shows he's obviously had a bit of an educashun. I would say he's a disappointed or unpublished writer who hasn't made any sort of impact on the world and is reduced to winding up the lewes forum as he goes into a progressively bitter and twisted old age. Let's stop replying at all to his ludicrous posts.

bitter and twisted old age....
Well all in all I think that went rather well.

I like him/her myself. Most Lewes people are lefty liberal types so it is good to have some opposition. I thought I was the only person in town who wasn't anti Israel and the US. But then I didn't go to university so what would I know about it (apart from spending time there?)

I can't be alone in thinking this a pathetic response to Newmania's reasoned argument can I?
Why does having a Green MP mean having the sea front taken over with their propaganda.
Heaven forfend that Lewes High Street be taken over with Liberal Twaddle.

Newmania has his own blog. Just stumbled across it whilst googling lewes forum

I'm ashamed to say I rather enjoyed Newmania's witty commentary on the greens and I'm surprised so many of you took it so seriously. Was it all literally true? Of course not. But like Clare in the Community, there's a grain of truth in the parody. And it was very well written and funny. Keep it up Newmania. You may not make many converts but at least you'll keep us amused.

Queequeg - Yes, you're alone. Newmania doesn't engage in 'reasoned argument', he engages in half-arsed dribbling bar-stool diatribe. Posting an 'Ooh, this'll get 'em going' load of old guff on an internet forum is simply attention seeking, and in a man of his presumed age it's more than a little sad. Like I said, needy.

In these times more than any other, and largely since the advent of the web, an ever-increasing number of ill-informed people are desperate that as many people as possible hear their opinions about everything.

I blame the parents.

Well the main points I make are all quite right
1 Caroline Lucas has indeed suggested International competiton be replaced in a speech she made as an MEP . It is an example of the anti Capitalism which informs Green thinking .
2The Green Party`s belief that Wind power is good because it employs more people is on their web site and appears to be a genuinely held belief.
3 She did attend an expensive Public Schoool in Malvern
4 She did have a hugely prolonged education in which women`s studies/Literature were the main components
5 She did camp at Greenham Common as well as belong to CND
6 She did share a platform with Sheikh Yusf Al Qaradawi whose views on women homosexuals and much are else repulsive. The event was organised by Ken Livingstone
7 She does support an embargo of Isareli Goods
8 Under her leadership the Green Party has lost support .
Some people may find these things attractive but its a long way from Jonathan Porrit and I think it is perfectly valid to point out what sort of an organisation the Green Party is for those who do not . I thought ,given that her constituency is adjacent ,the subject might interest Lewesians but what would I know .

Oh btw I am not old I am 46 so thats MIDDLE AGED bitter twisted stupid nutty needy failed and ignorant Newmania to you ok.

Clearly way too much time on his hands. Personally I sometimes feel a little guilty spending time reading postings when I could be doing something slightly more productive, then I level it by the fact that it is often informative, sometimes time saving and generally pretty interesting. When I see somebody going to the trouble of setting up their own blog that nobody reads, it makes me feel so much better as I'm clearly at the right end of a very broad scale of people who spend their hours wringing their hands into the internet.
On the bright side newmania - you still have time on your side, you can continue to peddle your poisonous views for many years to come as it requires nothing but an interent conection and a working digit. I'm sure you will find another forum when people get bored of you on this one.

Just principled and fair, and certainly not stereotypical like Newmania.

My son assures me The Greenhouse in Amsterdam, home to rappers, rockers and actooors, is the place to try organic produce. Will be going to sample in the near future, father and son bonding trip, can't wait. More excited than he is is ha ha. Best Peter, by the way, is Caroline around, missing you, where are you, please give me a post!!!! Peter :|

Greenhouse is good but in my opinion Barneys has the edge. They now have a few 'stores' and you can get a decent drink,a very decent smoke and they do a lovely breakfast and if you ask nicely they will let you use the Vaporiser.
