Should this be moved to the HOAX bin? Since it's absolutely baseless and proven illegitimate?

Honestly, the motivations of the routine anti-progressive, anti-liberal, anti-Democrat, anti-Moderate agenda here at ATS become more threadbare by the day.

Not wanting to piss on your parade much but the UK is far from being a 'socialist' state — even by American standards. Pay a little attention to the entity currently in government and you will discover that the UK is more classist than Socialist.

Edit: but hey, peeps don't like to think for themselves do they.

I was questioning the whole concept as well.

That's what the liberals all think... the RIGHT wing OWNS ATS.

debate REQUIRES facts and historical KNOWLEDGE,which progressives are attempting to CHANGE and every time they go DOWN in flames.

What does "classist" mean ?

Economic or Social ?

or both.

Greed is the problem, an unpaid for war is the problem... just like us.

Could be.

Maybe that affects GDP ?

I'm recommending HOAX because not only is the UK NOT SOCIALIST by any meaningful measure of the word ...

The GDP of the UK in 2012 was 2.435 TRILLION USD. (Source)

California is the US state with the highest GDP which is listed at 1.95 TRILLION USD. (Source)

That second list shows that technically the UK is the 7th most productive country in THE WORLD.

The OP is completely misleading, incorrect, flawed, etc.

Did you know that when you posted, xuenchen ? Two Google searches bore that information out.

Do you take any responsibility for what you post?

The chart and his calculations are no good. Depending on the country, you would have to go back and add in the PPP of GDP based on it's worth in US dollars. So the UK number would be about 30% higher.....and then you would have to factor in cost of living for each nation to properly decide each nation's "wealth".

It is both Social and economic. Look at the people in charge. Its the old school tie brigade. If you didn't go to a top private school, and want to join the party, you can always buy yourself in.

When do you question anything breitbart publishes, between episodes of pissing yourself with glee and basking in the glow of confirmation bias?

Sounds like the guy went through an awful lot of trouble to get to those numbers.

And in 3, 2, 1, he will find a tenuous link to socialism. This might be a mud pit but the likes of the OP shouldn't throw basic intelligence into the mire too.

Oh, COME ON ... you posted bad information with an inflammatory title because it suits your political agenda.

Isn't there a T&C against posting intentional HOAXES as fact?
