It turns out that, if Frank Turner were an American, he wouldn’t just be a Republican. He’d be one of those weird, militant Ron Paul supporters. Then again, we shouldn’t really be surprised when a man who is a graduate Eton, of one of the most exclusive private school’s in the entire universe, in generally in favour of holding on to as much money as humanly possible, everyone else be damned.
Via The Guardian:
“I consider myself to be pretty right wing and I get shit for saying that out loud. I was thinking about it the other day, I was thinking about how, quite often, I do keep myself to myself on the subject because I can’t be fucking bothered to have some guy look all shocked at me because I think socialism’s retarded.”
It’s worth noting that Turner has already responded, saying that he’s not a Conservative, but a libertarian.
