    They're just headaches, getting in the way of reason and common sense. They're also hypocrites who wouldn't give you the steam off their piss. Talentless fools. But what drives them? Apart from public sector pensions and vendettas!

    E.g. the Dianne Abbott's of this world. First to complain about private education. Few years later sends her son to a private school. Also complains of Finnish nurses not being able to connect with black patients. You couldn't make it up! These are the sort of people who join the Labour party. They're dangerous.

    Idealism, even if it doesn't work in practice, it's worth doing for the symbolism.

    That and clearly an anti-entrepreneurial spirit, and probably that people should get the same if they don't want to work as hard. And we should suppress people with talent because it's not fair that they have it. All linked to idealism in a way.

    Lol at your location.

    It's never always about working as hard; it's the vicious cycle.

    Wrong. Thanks to your types, female tennis players are paid the same as males, males who play up to two sets more. Hardly a move towards "fairness" and "equality". How you love those buzzwords!

    We believe in equal opportunities for people. We don't believe people should be tagged either winners or losers.

    It's nothing of an issue. The average male player may be worth £6m and the female £5m. Who cares about such a negligible difference?

    if the best argument you can come up with for lefties being inconsiderate is about tennis player's earnings, then they are pro more considerate than you think.

    The lefty claims every move is motivated by fairness and equality. I find most of their policies quite the opposite. Would you agree with the tennis example? In fact, you've all but admitted that it made things less fair and equal.
