I totally understand why you don’t want to discuss this... I wouldn’t either.

You can criticise politicians all you like... you are totally free to do so in this country.
So for you, a lawyer working for a NGO fighting the death penalty in the Middle East is a hypocrite because they get paid and so "financially benefit" from their job?

This is by far one of the best highjacking of a thread I can recall. Not sure who started it but thank you to whoever it was.

You can't have any moral high ground on that. When we were at war with the Argy's he helped us. That's British soldiers lives or maybe even a loss of a war because the Argy's professional army had be facing the Chilean border.

You have to take in the whole picture of what was going on, not just the opinion of left wing bigots in the Guardian.

Remember that when you are posturing righteousness over Pinochet, we owe him. Sometimes its best to just stop talking.

Who cares about relative poverty, its just a game. Absolute poverty is the concern.
