But many do - as something said by a famous and generally respected person.
Anything originated by Mr Doom best ignored anyway.

You've just described a Tory government nicely.
How you you equate things like the EU directive on working hours with the desires of corporate bosses?

Right. Certain EU countries (very few) already have strong employee welfare regulations. So the EU making this universal is somehow following the wishes of employers?
That argument would have more validity if they'd levelled down such regs.

Yes. That's what he said.

But they can't do that. They can only set *minimum* workers' rights that all EU members must follow. Individual member states are free to set its workers' rights at a higher level than that.
France (let's be clear who we are talking about here) had already set its workers' rights at a higher level than the other EU states, so it was in French employers' interests that other member states be forced to increase *their* workers rights.

UK does a great line in avoiding giving workers rights which makes them so much easier to make redundant than elsewhere in the EU. It will be even worse after we leave and multinational companies retrench.
UK employers are also notable for preventing Armistice Day 11/11 being a public holiday - even the Americans manage to do that as Veterans Day! Australia and New Zealand have Anzac Day 25/4 for Gallipoli instead.

Tell that to the average UK delivery driver. He'd be delighted to know he is protected by EU law.

But who cares who founded the KKK? What matters is whom are members. You might as well compare modern China with the original founders.

Don't know I never see adverts on line. I work this way as unless the sites can police the accessibility of their adverts and stop those which screw up blind navigation they can whistle if they want me to read them. I don't think advert supported internet services is sustainable in any case as people eventually just ignore them and just get irritated by the stupid ones. They vote with their mouse and go elsewhere.

The DM is (as usual) at least 3 years behind the alternative media. The Mumsnet scandal was exposed on several of the so-called "alt-right" sites during summer 2013 and just like Jimmy Savile, it's taken them *years* longer than the internet media to call it what it is.

What scandal? I haven't seen any Mumsnet scandal described in this thread, unless you mean posters to Mumsnet using nasty horrible swear words that nobody here would ever use.
