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....

We reside in The United [Insert Which Applies] Kingdom/States of the Nonsensical.

The cultists all feel ‘betrayed’, instinctively they know that the modern world has moved on without them, and that they need to stop the world, and have it fit with their own selective version. They are supporters of [insert which applies] Brexit / Trump, the right-wing position for people whose whole lives are someone else’s fault. Our populist leaders [insert which applies] Johnson / Farage / Trump have effectively picked up on this feeling of betrayal and are pointing the finger of blame to everyone not just like them. This allows the cultists to have someone to fault for their shit and pitiful little lives. Impugning the ‘establishment’ of which they are a part, mocking the ‘elite’, censuring the ‘experts’ feeds their bases insecurities and they delight in our leaders making scapegoats of people who disagree with them. They are mean bullies. And every time our leaders flap their gums and tell them how unfair the establishment is being to them it feeds into their sense of victimhood and betrayal, and they like living there.

Trying to challenge the faithful is a waste of time. Using facts and data to support a policy position that points out the faults in the dear leader’s position is an outrage to them. It just eggs them on to be even more fervent, if that is even possible, it does not matter what lies these idols peddle, they have brought into their bollocks hook line and sinker. When you have a group of people who have been told ad infinitum that they have been ‘left behind’ in the post-world war 2 settlement, that nothing is their fault rather it is all ‘their’ fault, coupled within an obvious lack of ability to perspective take, this makes them easy targets for someone who gives them certainty - clear-cut simple ‘truths’. They have felt ignored and telling them they are important has puffed up their egos. Because of that they will follow them anywhere.

For some reason I cannot explain the faithful seemingly love a blustering buffoon of a posh boy, or a ‘billionaire’ boor. Their lack of competence is not an issue for them, and they bring what is coming next (when our economies implode) unto their own heads. Supporting Brexit or Trump makes one a fool and we must treat them as fools, they deserve nothing more, because the more these leaders lie, abuse our constitutions, cause capital flight, trash our economies, ruin our international standing and wreck our countries the more their supporters love them.

We are literally surrounded by stupid.

On the bright side…

Every fascist, populist party in history have one, rather marvellous, thing in common – complete and utter failure in the end. So, despite the pomposity, the self-satisfied aggrandisement, the rhetoric, the tawdry displays of power, the lies and the deceit, one thing I think we can all look forward to is seeing our respective leaders ending up the sewer of horrible leaders of history. We gonna flush those shits away! Heh.

Jewish Chronicle: Our Labour values have not changed but we can't support a leader who has so...

...utterly failed on antisemitism

Our Honorary President, Dame Louise Ellman MP, along with our former Parliamentary Chair, Luciana Berger MP have been hounded out of Labour after years of relentless abuse, particularly in their local constituency parties.

Jeremy Corbyn was well aware of this bullying but did nothing to address their concerns. When two accomplished and dedicated Jewish Labour MPs no longer see a place for themselves in the Labour Party, it’s clear that the party has lost its way. Yet many Labour activists deny the negative experiences of Jewish members and claim the issue is a politically motivated fabrication.
We’re proud of our long history of activism in Labour; next year marks the centenary of our affiliation to the Party. We won’t be pushed out without a fight, neither will we abandon our principles for electoral expediency.

Fighting racism, prejudice and intolerance remain at the heart of our Labour values. It is the failure of the Leader and his supporters to live these values which has led us to take this stance.


It is completely understandable that they have taken this stance, why would you spend your time and effort trying to get someone elected who obviously could not give a shit about antisemitism at best and is at active participant at worst.. sad thing is I do not think Corbyn and his cabal will give a shit about this.

This is exactly what they are trying to do...

They want to inspire their bases... talk of riots and civil wars. It is rot of course which means they will fail in the end.

Trump Youth...

Children were told to ‘build the wall’ at White House Halloween party

Large letters on the display spelled out “Build the Wall.” Kids dressed as superheroes and ninjas were given brick-colored paper cards and told to write their name with a marker and tape them to the wall. Alongside the paper wall were signs including one that read “America First,” a slogan often used by President Trump that had been criticized because it was previously employed by the Ku Klux Klan.


Get them young...

sexist, undemocratic and wrong


Excluding women from the #GE2019 leaders’ debates is sexist, undemocratic and wrong. These two blokes don’t spk for Britain,we aren’t a 2 party country and the millions of people who want to #StopBrexit won’t have a voice http://libdems.org.uk/DebateHer #DebateHer

Oh what a surprise... male pale and stale 2019...
This is wrong on so many levels. But I think it will stand, because I am going to guess BoJo and Corbyn will pout and refuse to do it if the girl is asked to play too.
And you can guarantee that if they concede to Jo then Farage (although he is not elected) would demand a place - because whataboutery and wah wah wah, and one far right wanker in the debate is enough.

Privilege isn't...

I think this is the best definition I have ever seen on this

Burn of the Week

Once Upon A Time This Was Satire...Now, Not So Much...


...an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration...

He literally ticks every box for Narcissistic personality disorder.... very single one... including the extreme fragility of ego.

And then there is this...

Very single one...too many symptoms for one check list...

This dangerous a pick and mix of disorders should not be the leader of the free world...just sayin'

Explain this to me if you can...cause I am at a loss...

Nigel Farage has come out and said that the Boris Brexit is not a real Brexit. Therefore the leaders of the two leave campaigns in the referendum cannot agree on what Brexit should like, but we are told to believe that the 17.4 million who voted to leave knew the Brexit they were voting for… how the hell does that make sense, when even the Brexit zealots seemingly can’t agree on what they voted for… There is no bloody logic there at all…
Circular bloody firing squad of arseholes.
