Comment on Common Purpose Conspiracy Theory by Porcellio Scaber.

I’ve put a tick against all ten boxes (so to speak) in the summary list of what’s wrong with the country.

I’m aware that “post hoc ergo propter hoc” is a logical fallacy, so the mere fact that all these things are established facts in contemporary Britain doesn’t in itself argue for Common Purpose involvement.

Still, they do appear to be a nasty organisation, with an explicit policy of secrecy (i.e. unminuted meetings under the Chatham House Rule) and a sinister stated aim of “leading beyond authority”.

If – as is not inconceivable – they are (wholly or partly) behind our ten-point checklist of social evils, then they have succeeded brilliantly in achieving the programme attributed to them by their critics.
