Blogging ettiquette and fascists

Tim Worstall points us to the blog of someone called David Ireland. This idiot appears to be the civil servant advising the the government on its programme of confiscation of private property - using something called Empty Property Management Orders. This will allow them to confiscate any property that has been empty for more than six months and let it own their own terms to anyone they favour. I guess the principle is to confiscate it from Conservative supporters and hand it over to Labour ones.

You can be absolutely assured that the policy will never affect MPs or councillors.

I'm at a loss as to how to deal with someone who is either so bigoted, malicious or plain ignorant as to support a policy which undermines private property - which as de Soto has pointed out is the very basis of western prosperity. I try really hard to be polite when talking about other bloggers, but really this man is deserving of every vile epithet flung in his direction.
