    We're all just cogs in a mechanism. And even the little ones have an important function. People often forget that. If it wasn't dealing with people's sicknesses, healthcare would be a fascinating example of how you walk along a long string of people, everyone doing their bit to make you better. From the receiptionist at the GP, to the GP, specialist doctor, his assistants, hospital staff, anaesthesist, more assistants, surgical doctor, nurses in the wakeup room, back to the GP, pharmacies and local pharma resellers and their delivery vans... etc. etc.

    And pretty much every step of it is designed to happen on short notice, too, if need be. Medical emergencies being what they are. Shit's expensive, being good and fast because it has to. And someone's gotta pay for it. It's tragic, though, when people's lives are casually thrown under the bus, because internet warriors want to win a stupid argument and blow up the country in the process...

    HAHAHA, I personnally know this matter and you're in in a total urban legend/total disinformation bullshit if you think it work like that.

    You're employed just for the 6 open months for this salary, OR, if not, you're paid the total sum of the 6 month but extended on a year (less paid), OR you are just moved on another site if you're working with a big group.

    Says the person who embraces far right ideologies, ain't that cute taking the piss out of yourself. Good nice little sheep!


    In any case, vote will probably not pass and the circus will start again with barely any time to renogiate a new deal. Guess the UK is going to fall in complete choas slowly but surely. Shame, oh well guess its good news for me if the plant in Oxford suffers under this.

    It is intentionally being ignored for the sake of calling some judges just doing their job "Remoaners".
    Probably because them doing their job is a threat to the people behind the propaganda for Brexit and thus they are the enemy.

    There is no chance for that becasue it is advisory.
    The people who have organized the campains could be tried, though.

    The responsibility does and always did lie with the MP, and the accountability should as well.
    Allowing them to always choose some scapegoat for everything is what destroys UK demomcracy.
    "The will of the people" is one such scapegoat.

    The nazis latched onto the socialist name as a means of re-branding the word for their own far right nationalist politics, opposing actual left-wing parties in Weimar Germany, they purged both socialists and communists violently after coming to power, such as the SPD of the time.

    The nazis were firmly right wing.

    Oh fine, let's do this old thing again...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation...ialist_Program

    I'd love to hear how the following are right-wing:
    • We demand that the state be charged first with providing the opportunity for a livelihood and way of life for the citizens.
    • All citizens must have equal rights and obligations.
    • The first obligation of every citizen must be to work both spiritually and physically. The activity of individuals is not to counteract the interests of the universality, but must have its result within the framework of the whole for the benefit of all. Consequently we demand:
    • Abolition of unearned (work and labour) incomes. Breaking of debt (interest)-slavery.
    • In consideration of the monstrous sacrifice in property and blood that each war demands of the people, personal enrichment through a war must be designated as a crime against the people. Therefore we demand the total confiscation of all war profits.
    • We demand the nationalisation of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).
    • We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.
    • We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare.
    • We demand ... immediate communalization of the great warehouses [read: department stores] and their being leased at low cost to small firms, the utmost consideration of all small firms in contracts with the State, county or municipality.
    • We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.
    • The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession.
    • For the execution of all of this we demand the formation of a strong central power in the Reich. Unlimited authority of the central parliament over the whole Reich and its organizations in general. The forming of state and profession chambers for the execution of the laws made by the Reich within the various states of the confederation. The leaders of the Party promise, if necessary by sacrificing their own lives, to support by the execution of the points set forth above without consideration.

    Oh, and let's not forget little things like gun control and all the rest. Me, I want a small state, rock solid private property rights, strong gun ownership rights, don't believe in any kind of equality, and oppose the welfare state in general - so clearly I'm just like the guys who did the above .

    Like the party name suggests, the National Socialist German Workers' Party was a left-wing one. The fact that you've bought Stalin's old propaganda line that nazis and fascists are right-wing reactions to communism... well, no surprises there TBH.

    It was around this time that Stalin stumbled on a brilliant tactic of simply labeling all inconvenient ideas and movements fascist. Socialists and progressives aligned with Moscow were called socialists or progressives, while socialists disloyal or opposed to Moscow were called fascists. Stalin's theory of social fascism rendered even Franklin Roosevelt a fascist according to loyal communists everywhere. And let us recall that Leon Trotsky was marked for death for allegedly plotting a "fascist coup."
    ...
    Before the Holocaust and Stalin's doctrine of social fascism, liberals could be more honest about their fondness for fascism. During the "pragmatic" era of the 1920s and early 1930s, a host of Western liberal intellectuals and journalists were quite impressed with Mussolini's "experiment." More than a few progressives were intrigued by Nazism as well. W. E. B. DuBois, for example, had very complex and mixed emotions about the rise of Hitler and the plight of the Jews, believing that National Socialism could be the model for economic organization. The formation of the Nazi dictatorship, he wrote, had been "absolutely necessary to get the state in order." Hewing to the progressive definition of "democracy" as egalitarian statism, DuBois delivered a speech in Harlem in 1937 proclaiming that "there is today, in some respects, more democracy in Germany than there has been in years past."

    -Jonah Goldberg, "Liberal Fascism"

    Boy, does that reek of SJW nonsense or what? Try finding a decent source, or failing that a good argument or three, instead of just copy-pasting stuff from left-wing activist websites.

    He's one of the funniest English language writers around, so I'd say you're definitely missing out if you don't check out his work. A lot of it's in the form of short stories too, so find a Jeeves & Wooster one online (like the one above) and see if it's to your liking.

    Also we're planing to implement a dictatorship practically giving everything to one person, you know, socialism!

    Ended in a Dictatorship and no leader sacrificed their life for any of the points above.

    So apart from the first three points you want what the nazis ended up with.

    Stop scrolling down to the propaganda and maybe read what is written prior to the 25-point program:
    "Historian Karl Dietrich Bracher summarizes the program by saying that its components were "hardly new" and that "German, Austrian, and Bohemian proponents of anti-capitalist, nationalist-imperialist, anti-Semitic movements were resorted to in its compilation," but that a call to "breaking the shackles of finance capital" was added in deference to the idee fixe of Gottfried Feder, one of the party's founding members, and Hitler provided the militancy of the stance against the Treaty of Versailles, and the insistence that the points could not be changed, and were to be the permanent foundation of the party. Bracher characterizes the points as being "phrased like slogans; they lent themselves to the concise sensational dissemination of the 'anti' position on which the party thrived. ... Ideologically speaking, [the program] was a wooly, eclectic mixture of political, social, racist, national-imperialist wishful thinking..."[2]

    According to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the 25-point program "remained the party's official statement of goals, though in later years many points were ignored.""

    I highlighted the parts that aren't all that social so you understand it easier.
