Overview

In this book the author demolishes some of the facile and often completely counter-factual myths that get used over and again to justify the implementation of right-wing economic policies.
If you follow politics at all, or you've ever picked up a tabloid newspaper, you'll be familiar with some of the most egregious examples such as the "Labour caused the financial crisis" lie, the "unemployed are all lazy scroungers" narrative, the "private is always more efficient than public" fallacy and the ludicrous "trickle down" theory of economics.
The problem is that these (often absurdly inaccurate) right-wing fallacies are far more pervasive than most people think. The reason that they are so pervasive is that they are usually based in the form of simplistic justification narratives. This book will open your eyes to some of the biggest fallacies and manipulations used today by the right wing politicians in British politics today.

Meet the Author

I began writing the blog "Another Angry Voice" in 2010 in order to express my opinions about current political, social and economic issues. I chose the name Another Angry Voice on the spur of the moment because I thought it sounded good at the time and I had to call it something. I don't believe it is a particularly acurate descriptor, given that I strive to to base my arguments on facts and analysis, and to include reliable sources, rather than simply writing emotionally fueled rants.

I particularly enjoy demolishing pathetic arguments. My book "Silver Spooned- Feeble Right-Wing Fallacies" is definitely worth checking out if you need some instant ammunition to comprehensively defeat an entrenched right-wing reactionary that is simply regurgitating the kind of asinine nonsense that they read in the Daily Mail, in lieu of actually engaging in political discourse. The next time you see someone blathering about how "the state is less efficient than the private sector", comparing the national debt to "a maxed out credit card" or deriding anyone to the left of Genghis Kahn as a "loonie leftie" you can refute their claims with good hard core facts and sound logic.
