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....

The Tories have abandoned thought in favour of believing their own lies

Supporters of Brexit must believe that the impoverishment of the economy and the weakening of national security (which the right once fretted about) would be worth it because Brexit would bring national independence. Remainers say sovereignty would be at the expense of power. Every time the EU made a regulatory decision, Britain would have no choice but to go along with it or risk further damage to its economy. But whether Remainers believe we’ll be crawling back for a deal is irrelevant. Honest rightists must think that sovereignty or cuts in immigration make the belittlement of Britain worth while. Not one says so. Not one accepts trade-offs or admits they exist. It’s as if they don’t think at all.

We’ve reached the point where you cannot be honest and be on the right. Tory MPs who know the dangers the country faces keep quiet for fear of their constituency associations. In what the Conservative historian Tim Bale calls the “Tory party in the media”, you cannot find one commentator arguing against Brexit in the Express, Mail, Sun or Telegraph. As soon as you make your opposition clear, you are expelled. Tribalism is all, and to call the modern right anti-intellectual is to understate the case. It is anti-thought.


We are in perilous times, indeed.

Trump is looking for his balls. Good luck with that!

Just read an article on DailyKs and one has to ask....

...why are people so quick to put women, black women, black men and gay men in the VP box?

Article here:


It is 2019 dammit.

One comment:

Sure, Pete would demolish Pence. No question. However - I believe the best candidate to show up Trump as the total phony ass that he so pathetically is would be Mayor Pete. He is like the Anti Trump in every aspect.

Mayor Pete: If Trump Hadn't Dodged The Draft Maybe He'd Understand The Right Of NFL Players To Kneel

TMZ Sports reports:

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is going to bat for Colin Kaepernick … telling TMZ Sports he supports the QB’s right to take a knee during the national anthem — and he’s ripping Trump for going after the protesters.

“The way I feel about it is the flag that was on my shoulder when I served represented, among other things, our right to free speech,” Mayor Pete — a Navy veteran — told us in New York. “You don’t have to like it, but one of the reasons we serve was to defend that right, the right of peaceful protest and the idea that we can protest what is wrong with our country.”

“If the president had served,” Pete says. “Maybe he’d feel a little more strongly about some of those freedoms. And, I get that there’s a lot of strong opinions about this, but that’s part of why we served.”



Jon Voight releases video calling Trump 'the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln'

"I'm here today to acknowledge the truth. I'm here today to tell you, my fellow Americans, that our country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct," continued Voight.

He then denounced the "political left" and said that "we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph."

Voight concluded by saying, "So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America."


Lincoln responded to the statement in a clear and unambiguous way

Hillary on the 'drunk' Nancy video. It's sexist trash and a sign that Trump is running scared.


My take on Trump and his cronies spreading that doctored video of Nancy Pelosi: It's sexist trash.

It's also a sign that Trump is running scared.

No Kiddie Table: New DNC Rule Will Divide Top Dem Candidates Across First Two Nights Of NBC Debates

Politico reports:

A new rule adopted by the Democratic National Committee and NBC News will evenly divide top-tier candidates across two nights in the first Democratic presidential primary debates in June, a move to maintain viewer interest in both events by making sure well-known contenders are on stage both nights.

Democrats getting at least 2 percent support in the polling average will be randomly and evenly split between the two nights, which will each feature 10 candidates, according to the formula obtained by POLITICO. Candidates below that threshold will also be evenly and randomly divided between the two debate lineups.

As things stand now, eight candidates are polling higher than 2%: Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Under the above rule, four will appear on each of the two nights. It’s therefore possible that Biden and Bernie will not be on the same stage.
