Reader’s comment: Owen’s new benchmark for compassion


In response to Paul T Horgan: Venezuela is hell. This, you Corbynites, is socialism in action, News wrote:

As I understand it, Venezuela is a paradise on earth if you judge it on the Owen Jones Whatabouta-Saudi Scale.

It’s the new benchmark for compassion. As endorsed by the BBC, The Guardian and Sky News.

If unemployed Venezuelan oil workers are forced to boil their own shoes for soup for their families, that is actually a comparative advantage when viewed through Owen Jones’ new Whatabouta-Saudi Glasses.

It must be enormously comforting to those victims of state torture that The Daily Telegraph has ignored their plight as shamefully as the casualties of the war in Yemen. And that Owen Jones strongly condemns it.

According to the calculations made on the Owen Jones Whatabouta-Saudi slide rule, those Venezuelans should be cockahoop and thankful for the joys of socialism.
