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....

Castle on the Hill

The place from which I come...

Did you hear the one about the serving soldier threatening to kill a female politician?

There is no punchline. This is a real thing in our country.

New Statesman is reporting that..

British Army corporal tweets Angela Rayner will “perish” in Brexit “civil war”

A corporal in the British Army issued a death threat to a Labour MP and appeared to incite “civil war” on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

The corporal, whose Twitter account has now been deleted, wrote to Rayner: “Ohh fuck off you stupid bitch” and said the MP would “perish when civil war comes and it’s coming”. The soldier ended the tweet by adding that “17.4 million people are gunning for blood if we don’t leave”.


I am more than certain about 10 people - most of them on the front bench - out of the 17.4 million would advocate a civil war but is this who we are now? This is an outrage. He should be in the glass house. He certainly should be nowhere near any weapons of any sort.

First they came for...

Biff. Baff. Uppercut.

Just sayin'

He is a walking talking outhouse of illegality...

Exactly this...
We have to take the shit(house) down!

See what I did there...


TIME Magazine has released their cover for this week's upcoming edition....

Hillary Rodham Clinton: Trump is a "corrupt human tornado"


Former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton calls President Trump a “threat” to the country’s standing in the world and a “corrupt human tornado,” in an interview with Jane Pauley for “CBS Sunday Morning” to be broadcast September 29.

In a wide-ranging interview with Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, about their new book, Clinton weighs in on talk of impeaching President Trump; the potential of the president’s reelection; her loss in the 2016 election; and her life today.

“My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton said. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.


Well yes, yes he is!

They talk such complete bollocks...

A Cabinet Minister in the UK this week said that there would be riots in the streets if Brexit did not happen at the same time as Trump is saying that there will be violence in the streets if he gets impeached.


What is it with the far right and their pompous self belief that makes them conceive that people will riot on their behalf? Can someone please remind these fascist nasty totalitarian wannabees that we live in nations of laws in which the vast majority of people would never dream of rioting. Apart from anything else look at the demographics of those that voted for Trump and Brexit. Aside from a few young far right thugs most would be rioting from their mobility scooters and retirement homes.

Now don't get me wrong, I am sure there is enough poutrage out there for some to march on Washington and Westminster waving their 'MAGA' and 'Take Back Control' placards. But rioting? Such nonsense. Even the most cultisits of the cultisits have lives they live outside the political rhetoric to which they cleave with such unthinking loyalty, and they do not want to give those lives up by committing criminal offences like destruction of property or arson.

The thing about all of this is these far right democracy stealers is that they want people to riot. They want lawlessness and disorder to further their own agendas. There is literally no political gravitas or respect for the rule of law in these supposed leaders of our nations. One might suggest that they are using incitement to riot to further their own ends. Oh my!

Rioting my arse.

Please Stand By


New York Times blasted for outing whistleblower and 'putting his life in danger'

Right-wing activists Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl are offering $50,000 for information about the whistleblower, presumably, so they can doxx him/her and wage an all-out attack against the person. Meanwhile, The New York Times is being blamed for doing the work for them.

The site “Task & Purpose” noted that the New York Times profile about the whistleblower laid out enough identifying details that a smart activist could figure out the CIA officer’s information and put the person’s life in danger.

“Publishing details about the whistleblower will only lead to the identification of someone, whether our client or the wrong person, as the whistleblower. This will place this individual in a much more dangerous situation, not only in their professional world but also their possible personal safety,” T&P quoted one of the whistleblower’s attorneys Mark S. Zaid.

Trump: "The whistleblower is a traitor and you know what we used to do with those"
NYT: "Here's who it is, it's him, over here, look"


This is not on. It is a fucking outrage...

Bang him up!

FYI - bang him up in the UK is lock him up in the US
