AN internet user who spends most of his time praising free-market capitalism is entirely dependent on his mum.“She does it because she wants to”
33-year-old Tom Logan argues against any form of collective provision in internet debates, despite being relying on his mum for everything including the laptop he writes on.
Office worker Logan said: The free market is the best way to provide for peoples needs, although the housing bubble has meant my mum had to give me her life savings to buy me a nice flat.
The private sector is also cheaper and more efficient than the public sector, apart from my terrible local bus service, so its lucky mum was able to lend me the money for a car.
The welfare state just makes people dependent on handouts. This is in no way comparable to the money my mum gives me every month when Ive run out of cash, because thats a loan that just happens not to have a repayment date.
The problem these days is that people expect things to be handed to them on a plate. Excuse me, I think mums just arrived with a load of lasagna for the freezer.
Jilly Logan, 60, said her sons confused economic views began when she failed to explain that getting money from the tooth fairy was not a genuine business transaction.
She added: Its good hes making friends on the internet. Maybe one of these days he can have all his little chums from the Daily Telegraph website round for tea.
