About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Give them an inch and they will steal a mile.

We know that the decision to hold the referendum in 2016 was an attempt to appease a bunch of far-right racists on the back benches – now the ERG – and hold the tory party together cause power over everything. These far-right liars sold the Big Brexit Lie to a bunch of poorly educated xenophobic leavers, persuading them that Johnny Foreigner is to blame for the ills of the land and in the process made the far right ‘respectable’ in the national landscape. The problem with appeasement and the far right… it never works. Give them an inch and they will steal a mile. And they have stolen plenty at this point. This tory party, under Johnson, is clearly very comfortable in this space, but what about labour? They are chasing the same votes in this co-hort of leavers, how far down the line will they go to appease them? There is a test there I think, for this labour party, under Corbyn, during this election... Time will tell.

This is OUR day now...

Maybe a tad optimistic at the moment, but I approve this message

Once again confirming we are witness to one of the most ludicrous eras in history...

After Spicer was voted off "Dancing," @realDonaldTrump deleted his 8:33pm tweet urging people to "vote for Sean." Trump had written, "He is a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard." Now he's posted a new message: "A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!"

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Ladies and Gentlemen the supposed leader of the supposed free world...
Maybe in one way - if he stays focused on such bollocks, maybe less harm can be done. But the ego busting on this is pathetic, deleting a tweet cause the American people did not vote for Spicer on his command?? Good Grief.

And for the bonus round...

Exactly what part of the Russian stealth war is unclear...?!?!

Let us remind ourselves of the current situation…

• Manipulated the US elections in 2016 through the targeting of social media and hacking.
• Infiltrated the NRA and laundered money through them.
• Provided hacked information on to Trump on his opponent, in a democratic election, to covertly influence the outcome.
• Putin…Wikileaks…Trump
• Putin is controlling Trump to be invited back to the big boys table and making it a G8 again.
• Putin denying that he is doing anything wrong and Trump believing him (or pretending too).
• Working to manipulate the results of the 2020 US election.
• Invests heavily in Russian Bot Farms to troll literally every progressive liberal movement and thought on the interwebs.
• Continues to do everything possible to undermine the stability of the European Union.
• They literally poisoned people in broad daylight in the United Kingdom, and as an aside they make polonium tea.
• Contributed significantly to the Leave Campaigns to influence the Brexit decision in the United Kingdom.
• Working to manipulate the General Election 2019 result in the United Kingdom.
• They have annexed Crimea and eastern Ukraine.
• They undermine NATO and the UN every chance they get, voting to support the bully boys and tyrants of the world.
• Their sticky fingers are all over the Syria and Turkey crisis.
• Funded Marine LePen and the far right in France.
• Funding the separatists in Spain.

Etc et al

There is a new war going on indeed… Russia disrupts everything and are overtly supported by our leadership. They refuse to act against these outrageous acts as our authoritarian wanna bees are benefiting so much from it. They are also letting him act like a super power when he is not. Fucking ridiculous. Sadly, the apathy of the electorate means they stand by and let them crack on with destroying the post world war 2 liberal progressive democratic order of the West.

Literally stealing from Vets...

You need to be a special kind of stealing wankerish arsehole... alongside being a psychopath even think about trying to pull this kind of shit.
How much more odious does he need to become before they turn on him? There will be a turning point, but it needs to come sooner or later...

A certain kind of man...

Why is it that all the bloody disruptors of our security, our peace and our economic well being are blokes? It is like half the men in the West woke up one day about five years ago and just said fuck it with the post-world war two liberal settlement that has kept the peace for over 70 years. We are bored with our relative prosperity, democratic governance, healthy nations and higher living standards than we have ever had.

That shit is boring… lets just bring it all down and see what happens…

We are literally witnessing this before our very eye’s day in and day out. We are living through a very dangerous point in history, and when it all goes to hell in a hand basket, which it will, being men of a certain ilk, it will all be someone else’s fault.

Bloody men of the last century trying to destroy this one. Fuckers.

As the Republicans fret about their election chances...

...maybe they should have thought that their particular brand of hate and nasty cannot survive forever in such a connected world, it is there in your face in every corner of MSM and social media, and eventually, all actions have consequences...

They have felt free to pander to their very worst excesses, because Trump has normalised sinking as low as possible, and this is never OK with the normal in the middle majority in a democratic system... they have pushed their bullshit so far that the stink of it is all over the land. They are so caught in the mire of their own toxic making that they forget they need the middle and the middle right to retain power, and within these cohorts there are many (and a growing number) who look at, with increasing aghast, what the republican party has become... and it does not matter about their smoke and mirrors, their attempts at false equivalency and their Russian friends, all of that may have an impact on the fringes but the STINK is now so STINKY, distraction and lies are not going to be as effective as they were in the last election cycle. The stink is so strong even those with selective filtering when it comes to Trump will find it difficult to ignore the stench that surrounds him and the republican party.

The republicans need to fret about next year, as the GOP is beyond broken and there is no time to fix it. They are going DOWN because there are not enough angry old white men, clinging to bigotry, misogyny, phoney patriotism, cafeteria Christianity and homophobia out there to keep then in power. They are fast losing their relevance to everyone else and they only have themselves to blame. After all no-one wants to hang around the smelly kid... Heh.

ODS alive and well in the far right...

But.. But.. Obama did it...

Anonymous Trump official who wrote anti-Trump book is actually ‘Barack Hussein Obama’

Like many right-wing conspiracy theorists, Wiles thinks Obama is “running the Resistance” against Trump.

“I’m not saying he physically wrote [the book], but I would be confident in predicting that he authorized a ghostwriter [to write it] — As a ghostwriter, you can make up anything.”

“I’m gonna put out there, Barack Obama is behind the book, ‘Anonymous,'” Wiles continued, confusing the author’s pseudonym with the title.


Of course he is...
It could not be that the book is based on someone who worked for Trump and that Trump really is that shit at his job. Of course not cause Obama, Deep State, Delusion and Bollocks.. heh

Boris Johnson's Conservative party has received cash from 9 Russian donors named in a suppressed...

...intelligence report

Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has received a surge in cash from nine Russian donors, who have been named in a suppressed investigation into Russia's attempts to undermine democracy in the UK.
Fears have previously been raised that Johnson's private life may make him a "security risk" due to the possibility he could be blackmailed.

"There's the danger that people leak what they have over him or blackmail him with it," a Cabinet minister in Theresa May's government told the Sunday Times earlier this year.


Up for Sale Johnson..

Winners Karma is Splendid!

I know there is not really a causation or correlation... BUT
