SOCIETY WATCH: EVERY FOURTH TOY IN EUROPE UNSAFE, STUDY FINDS OUT (GUESS WHERE THESE UNSAFE TOYS ARE COMING FROM?)

A new study just released by the EU commission finds that 25 percent, yes, boys and girls, every fourth mechanical toy that was sold in Europe is dangerously unsafe.

The number of unsafe products has quadrupled since the EU founded the department RAPEX (a very unfortunate acronym, if you ask me) four years ago!

Let me repeat that. This constitutes a rise of 400 percent of unsafe shit that is flooding our toy stores... in four years!

Oh, and yes... guess where 60 percent of all said unsafe shit was manufactured?

That's right, kids.

China.

The country whose economic model still gives every fucking right-wing economist and each politician of every fucking party a constant corruption-sized hard-on.

Yes, we should all be a little bit more like China. The country that has its citizens being thrown off their own land. The country that provides the biggest sweatshop for multinational corporations.

The country that would have the 19th century's greatest humanitarian author Charles Dickens look at it and weep, for it is the dream of every Manchester capitalist and population-poisoning scumbag who has no problem putting e.g. miners into unsafe mines...

(gosh, what happened in China and in Virgina almost at the same time, and for the same reason? Hell, who gives a damn? Let's talk about Tiger's Wood a little more)

....who has no problem with child labour...

(because, let's face it, some of those new products, they really need to have people with tiny fingers putting and slapping together that shit, and those kids, why would they need an education anyway?)...

... yes, let's all be a little bit more like China, shall we?

Let's send more delegations down there to suck the Chinese government's dick, please, please don't take us off our addiction to cheap shit and cheap money, we know you own us already, please, please...

... can we have some more?
