Private education (Classics) is baloney; you need plumbers, chicken pluckers, carpenters and other artisans.

A minor Royal I slightly know has just liked a pro-Corbyn Instagram post by a posh person I also know.

The need to be liked, accepted by one's tribe is powerful. 

Sheep should be eaten and turned into pullovers, not voting.

Pullovers can be made from alpacas.

And I once had a delicious lomo de alpaca in Peru.

Sheep and alpacas should be loved and hugged, you savage.

It is our duty to eat sheep. Man has overbred them so much that left to their own devices in the wild they would last about as long as a Guardian reader at a football match. 

I've never eaten an alpaca. I'll I add it to my list.

I've also never eaten a Guardian reader. I suspect they are quite bitter.

It will get worse. 92% of Welsh sheep are bound for EU every year. So, get ready for the glut. And the sheep farmers in the Lake District will be kaput.
The sheep on my mountain have destroyed the vegetation. No more heather and wild flowers. EU subsidies.

At least they are not so stupid to eat only potatoes and starve themselves to death in the event of blight, and then rant about it for the next two centuries.

You don't know twat. We must wean you off those tabloids.
There was no famine. Read a book.

A list of exports from Cork Harbour
The fourteenth of September, Eighteen Forty-Seven
Ran as follows:
147 barrels of pork,
986 casks of ham,
27 sacks of bacon,
528 boxes of eggs,
1, 397 firkins of butter,
477 sacks of oats,
720 sacks of flour,
380 sacks of barley,
187 head of cattle,
296 head of sheep, and
4, 338 barrels of miscellaneous provisions,
On a single day,
The ships sailed out from Cork Harbour
With their bellies in the water.
On a single day in County Galway,
The great majority of the poor located there
Were in a state of starvation,
Many hourly expecting death to relieve their suffering.
On a single day,
The Lady Mayoress held a ball
At the…
On a single day,
The Lady Mayoress held a ball
At the Mansion House in Dublin
In the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.
Dancing continued until the early hours,
And eshments of the most varied and sumptuous
Nature
Were supplied with inexhaustible profusion.
On a single day.
On a single day.
