Tony Benn, George Osborne, Bertolt Brecht

Tony Benn – exuded decency and compassion and always stood with the oppressed.
George Osborne – exudes smugness and contempt for  people and planet alike.
Bertolt Brecht wrote something like this…..

There are those who are arseholes for one day.

and they are forgiven

There are those who are arseholes for many days

and they are a real pain

There are those who are arseholes all their lives

and they are the ruling class.

 Actually Brecht was talking about us:-

There are men that fight one day and are good, others fight one year and they’re better, and there are those who fight many years and are very good, but there are the ones who fight their whole lives and those are the indispensable ones”.
