Thrust of argument: Boris is wrong on IQs, of course, and I say this as someone the IQ scorers score highly. IQs are not only cultural and changeable, they are meaningless and only a measure used by people who know that in any practical demonstration they will not be proved 'better' than others 'intellectually' so need some meaningless number to fall back on and wave. Joining a society for 'clever' people, like MENSA, to me, is the clearest possible sign of intellectual insecurity. Moving on. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: The NHS annoys me. I am grateful to the administrators, nurses and doctors who are good at their jobs, and acknowledge that they are outnumbered by many incompetents and similar - whether we are talking about nurses or administrators, doctors, dentists, etc. I think that what I can see is that banks and hospitals have one thing in common - pretty much nobody inside them has any capacity for self-criticism and it gets in the way of all they do. Throwing money at either is not really going to solve the deepest problems, although that's not to say that underfunding of hospitals is acceptable. It (money) just won't make the stupid nurses and stupid administrators and stupid doctors into the clever ones. That will happen when the culture of self-importance is no longer the chief characteristic of being British or Western, perhaps even 'modern' - definitely any country outside war zones, that ideology is likely to be prevalent (the whole "i'm better than the bankers because i'm a nurse, and i'm really morally brilliant, you should obey me" and "i'm better than nurses because i'm a banker, and i'm really morally brilliant, and you should obey me" etc).

It's annoying. I can say this now because my writing will impact zero votes so it's perfectly fine for me to mention now that the never-ending self-praise by NHS workers is pretty pathetic and is indeed equalled only by the self-praise of bankers.

The reason we have self-praising bankers is not the fault of banking and is the same reason we have self-praising media workers, public servants, business owners and everyone else, self-praising random Joes on the street who know how much better they are than - Europeans - or Muslims - or Non white people - or Irish people - or whatever. You see my point? Well probably if you already knew it, maybe not if you didn't. Such is the way of the universe.

Removal of resistance: I missed something out in my list of obvious examples of absurd hypersexuality, of 'compulsive sexual objectification and self-objectification' - I mentioned that if an office worker dresses like a cheap or high class whore, male or female (you LOVE THOSE nice suits and ties, my male prostitute friends, eh?) you are arbitrarily objectifying yourself and are an arse. There is no sexual reason, you are "looking sexy" in order to earn money, not in order to have sex, other than, perhaps, sex in exchange for power/alliance/money, just an extension of ordinary prostitution and objectification. So what did I miss out? A HUGE ONE - if you are a media worker and you dress in order to be sexy, that is the same - it's obviously more tempting and extremely common, we even have the number game presenter on Countdown generally known throughout the media for her body parts rather than any other quality. The media is a classic example of how sexuality is used not for sex but for audience ratings, income ratings, credibility enhancement (believe him, he looks nice, believe her, she's showing some skin). Unification: Obviously stupid people can't grasp any of what I said and would find it offensive, and yet not be able to differentiate between this and Boris Johnson's infamous (now) speech about cornflakes. In that speech, I would like to point out, he says we need to foster envy, to maker society better - people need to envy each other, he said. He used the word envy. Boris, what a fool you are, that's a gotcha if ever I saw one. So you admit that you live by an ideology of envy? And as for the people I have attacked throughout this thread - note how much your actions have in common with Boris Johnson's alleged 'ideology' (don't give him that much credit, he says whatever he thinks will gain him the material gain he seeks - he is just a child looking out for number 1, he has no thought-out ideology and I do believe that given time he could learn to be a lot more like Corbyn and a lot less like Nixon).
