Fascist? That’s a bit harsh, isn’t it? Is it? A bunch of unelected people don’t like a certain public policy. Fair enough. So they decide to disrupt it? Who gave them the power? Just because it is Peter Mandelson, who tends to be unpopular because he isn’t afraid to take on unpopular causes, doesn’t make it right. The Irish public sector, for example, can put 100,000 on the street. Therefore, should they run the country because they’re the best organised mob?
Things can’t be decided by unelected mobs. Start with that and we end up with illiterate thugs burning paediatricians out of their homes.
In fairness, it says something about British cabinet ministers, that the UK is still a country where you can do stuff like this and not get shot dead. Let’s see these guys try something like that with President Obama.
