I Can’t Vote Lib Dem Because I’m Not a Wealthy Able-Bodied Trans Woman

Jo Swinson is most certainly not having a great 2019 General Election campaign, as leader of the Liberal Democrats she’s proving herself most definitely not to be an electoral asset for the party, in fact according pollsters the more people hear & see of Jo Swinson the more they dislike her. It surprises me not that the more voters hear of Jo Swinson they dislike her, because oh how she loves to whinge & fucking whine. Whine, whine, Jo Swinson is perpetually whining, I can’t recall an appearance Jo Swinson has made in the mainstream news media where she’s not been whining like some swotty political version of Veruca Salt & its annoying as fucking fuck.

Prior to the first televised GE2019 debate which aired last Tuesday, as per usual Jo Swinson was whining specifically about not being invited to participate in ITV’s leaders’ debate but the irony is ITV might’ve done Swinson a favour in not inviting her to participate, because when she was invited to participate in last night’s special leaders’ edition of Question Time oh deary me her performance on BBC Question Time was far from stellar, in fact her performance on BBC QT was atrociously dismal & fuck me it was painful to watch.

Swinson struggling on Question Time

Swinson claimed during her appearance on BBC QT she was anti-fracking whereas her voting record & previous political sponsorship say otherwise, generally Swinson didn’t seem to react well to members of the QT audience being angry about their expectations of the Lib Dems being etc & then the Lib Dems when elected doing completely other than etc, which goes to the crux of my personal animosity towards the Lib Dems.

Obvious to anybody familiar to my writing that I detest the Tories with every fibre of my being for the misery they repeatedly inflict on vulnerable people, but if the truth be told I probably have just as much pent up animosity towards the Lib Dems as I do towards the Tories, I might in fact have more pent up animosity towards the Lib Dems then I do towards the Tories because whereas I know the Tories are evil fucks who’ll do evil shit the Lib Dems are truly the party who’ll say one thing & will do another, kind of found this out for myself when around the time civil partnerships became legal for same-sex couples & the local Lib Dem party bigwig told me she had nothing against gays/lesbians just so long as they didn’t live next door to them.

Very liberal NOT for your local Lib Dem councillor to be a homophobic bigot who then when challenged about being a homophobe said she wasn’t always a liberal, err I don’t think was ever a liberal nor ever would be a liberal as it was obvious as fuck they were utterly clueless as to the meaning of liberal, but hey what’s fucking new because most Liberal Democrat party members seem fucking clueless as to the meaning of liberal, I’m a redder then red socialist & I seem to know more about liberal political philosophy & the history of British liberalism than your average moronic Lib Dem member, it’s not as if I’m expecting every Lib Dem member to know every facet of liberal philosophy or be able to quote word for word John Stuart Mill’s treatise On Liberty, I just don’t expect them to allow the selection of screaming ignorant intolerant bigots to stand for election.

The ultimate Liberal Democrat betrayal was of course the 2010 General Election, when millions of voters were led to believe the Lib Dems were the ‘progressive choice’ only to then watch aghast as in the aftermath of GE2010 the Lib Dems jumped into bed with the Tories. Obvious to me those in the BBC QT audience who were giving Swinson a hard time as well as many who’ve been challenging her whilst she’s been on the election trail, have long enough memories to remember it was Lib Dems who helped to prop up the Tories in government from 2010 to 2015 & helped the Tories get started with persecuting the most vulnerable in society with austerity, including the persecution & blatant mass murder of tens of thousands upon tens of thousands of disabled people. Both Jo Swinson & Lib Dem leader Ed Davey have the blood of dead disabled people on their hands as they both were ministers in the in Con/Dem coalition government which committed crimes against humanity upon people with disabilities & rather then doing the decent thing in apologising for the hurt they’ve inflicted upon disabled people the Lib Dems apparently still don’t seem to give a shit about disabled people.

If helping the Tories commit what essentially amounts to genocide when it comes to disabled people wasn’t egregious enough, the Lib Dems have snubbed disabled people with the omission of disability rights from their equalities manifesto, talk about insult to fucking injury, also ironically embarrassing considering the chairperson of the Lib Dems Sal Brinton herself is a wheelchair user.

I actually know of a pretty wealthy trans woman who up until recently was a pretty prominent LGBTQ member of the Liberal Democrats, she however resigned from the Lib Dems when Tory defector joined the Lib Dem parliamentary ranks as Lee had abstained on the vote to broaden marriage equality for same-sex couples, okay I sympathise with this particular trans woman resigning from the Lib Dems when Lee was welcomed with open arms by Jo Swinson & co because yes his voting record is decidedly homophobic, but whereas it was enough for her to resign from the Lib Dems because a Tory defector to the party abstained on the gay marriage vote, it wasn’t enough for her to resign when the Lib Dems were helping to persecute & murder tens of thousands of disabled people.

Jo Swinson at launch of the Lib Dems election manifesto

The one thing the Lib Dems have been banging the drum as loudly as they’re able to this General Election campaign regards their equalities manifesto is their support for reforming the Gender Recognition Act to make it easier for trans & non-binary people to self-identify, which being trans I of course welcome & there are other Lib Dem policies such as decimalising marijuana, support for proportionate representation, but the snub to disabled people is for me as a person with multiple disabilities enough to put me off even contemplating to tactically vote Lib Dem as I have previously done up until 2010 due to living in the kind of safe Tory constituency where if the Tories put up a tub of lard or a dead horse it would still win by a landslide. Seems to me if you’re a wealthy abled bodied trans woman who doesn’t give a flying fuck about disabled people then the Lib Dems could be the party for you & believe me not giving a fucking fuck about disabled people isn’t an uncommon sentiment amongst trans people.

Lib Dems Stop Being Awkward F**kwits & Grasp The Only Choice To Prevent A No-Deal-Brexit Is To Support Jeremy Corbyn

Last week was the week I decided to take a break from writing & of course this had to be the very week when all fucking heck broke lose politically here in the UK, with Jeremy Corbyn offering to lead a government of national unity to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit & soon after call a General Election.

Backing Jeremy Corbyn is the only option to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit

For Jeremy Corbyn to become Prime Minister in a government of national unity, Labour would have to first win a parliamentary vote of no confidence in the current Tory government, now there is a very real possibility Labour could in fact win such a vote with the support of all MPs from opposition parties as there are a substantial number of Tory MPs opposed to there being a No-Deal-Brexit who’d be prepared to vote the government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson down if Boris plumps for a No-Deal-Brexit which at this stage if Boris wants to keep to the October 31st deadline is logistically the only form of Brexit he & the Tory government can plump for. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership have said they’d be prepared to table a motion of no confidence when parliament reconvenes week after next if MPs from opposition parties would be prepared to back Jeremy in becoming Prime Minister in a government, but of course the Liberal Democrats have been acting like awkward fuckwits in response to this & as a consequence could cause a No-Deal-Brexit the very thing they claim to fundamentally oppose.

The one thing everybody knows these days about the Liberal Democrats is that they are the Pro Remain party who want there to be a second referendum on EU membership, they’re also the party who have constantly accused the Tories & Labour on the issue of Brexit of putting party interest ahead of the national interest which is certainly true in regards to the Tories which is what got us into this mess in the first place, but here now are the Lib Dems putting their own party interest ahead of the national interest when it comes preventing a No-Deal-Brexit so they can feel important as a minor party. I concede as we are in a hung parliament scenario that the votes of Lib Dem MPs are more crucial, but I don’t see any other option at this stage in preventing a No-Deal-Brexit other then backing Jeremy Corbyn to lead a government of national unity & by the Lib Dems refusing to back this they’re helping to expedite a No-Deal-Brexit which is goes against the very reason why I’d imagine the vast majority of people who’ve voted Lib Dem have opted to vote Lib Dem since the Brexit result of 2016’s EU Referendum, but of course this wouldn’t be the first time the Lib Dems had cheated those who had voted for them, I mean if there’s one thing I’ve learnt about the Liberal Democrats over the years its they truly are the party who say one thing & do another.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson prepared to cause a No-Deal-Brexit despite saying the Lib Dems are fundamentally opposed to a No-Deal-Brexit

An acquaintance of mine who’s a Liberal Democrat perspective parliamentary candidate said to me there are other options to preventing a No-Deal-Brexit then Jeremy Corbyn leading a government of national unity though they didn’t actually elaborate as to what those options were, I know there are possibly various parliamentary procedures which MPs could attempt in trying to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit, but what I think my Lib Dem acquaintance might be referring to with there being other options in preventing a No-Deal-Brexit then Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister of a government of national unity is Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson saying they’d be prepared to back a government of national unity led by Labour if the Labour leader were Yvette Cooper or Hilary Benn or Emily Thornberry or any other MP other than Jeremy Corbyn. Why is it I get the impression that Chuka Umunna has had a hand in this bullshit Jo Swinson has been spouting that the Lib Dems would back a Labour led national government of unity if Labour replaced Jeremy Corbyn as leader, being as Chuka defected from Labour via Change UK to the Lib Dems because a democratic-socialist was actually elected leader of a democratic-socialist party & Chuka is way too much of Blairite twat, he really does seem to have so much hatred for Corbyn that he’s willing to cut off his nose off to spite his face but hey it rather appears that so are the rest the Lib Dem Party when it comes to preventing a No-Deal-Brexit, for fucks sake Jo Swinson has spent the past week lying & smearing Jeremy Corbyn on social-media saying he won’t fight for Remain despite Corbyn having explicitly said on numerous occasions that Labour support there being a second referendum & would back Remain in that referendum which correct me if I’m wrong is pretty much the same stance as the Lib Dem position duh!

The Liberal Democrats can dream on about Labour replacing Jeremy Corbyn as leader, there is absolutely fuck all chance of that happening, so here’s my message to the Lib Dems is to stop acting like awkward fuckwits & grasp the only choice is to back Jeremy Corbyn if they truly want to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit & there being any chance of a second-referendum which is what they claim they fundamentally want.

Chuka Umunna Joins The Lib Dems As Change UK Are Forced To Change It’s Name

Chuka Umunna has joined the Liberal Democrats, well there’s a fucking surprise NOT! It ain’t a surprise because this weighty but very sweary political commentator predicted last week he would when he was amongst 6 MPs who walked away from Change UK & as I also predicted he probably won’t be the only one of those 6 MPs who’ll finally wind up in the Lib Dems

Chuka Umunna a Labour MP for New Year’s, A Change UK MP for Easter, Now A Lib Dem MP for the Summer Solstice but will he be a Tory MP by Christmas

Of course Chuka Umunna is joining the Lib Dems having already left the Labour Party back in February to form the Independent Group which became Change UK, originally with other disgruntled Blairites including Angela Smith & Chris Leslie pissed because they couldn’t oust Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader, okay I could sympathise with Luciana Berger’s motivations for leaving Labour considering the deluge of antisemitic abuse she was being subjected to by supposed Corbyn supporters, but as for Chuka Umunna playing political musical fucking chairs, the fact he’s been a member of three different political parties inside 6 months, it ain’t fucking fair on the voters pf Streatham. The voters of Streatham elected Chuka Umunna thinking he was representing Labour a party which opposed & continues to steadfastly oppose austerity, only now to have Chuka Umunna represent the Lib Dems the party who more than bloodied themselves in aiding the Tories in wreaking austerity upon the most vulnerable in society, so Chuka Umunna are you going to stand down & let there be a by-election to give the opportunity for your constituents to say whether they want a Lib Dem to represent them, whether they want to be represented by a member of a party who at most has given a mealy-mouthed apology for the austerity they helped to inflict when they thought you represented opposition to such cruel opposition. Nah Chuka you won’t give the voters of Streatham the by-election they deserve because you know they’d tell you to fuck off big time because they had thought you were represented fuck off to austerity, oh I’m going to love it, I’m going to fucking love it, come the results coverage at the next General Election & seeing you get electorally beat, deposed, motherfucking defeated!

Who knows if Change UK are in fact the last party Chuka Umunna will walk away from, I’d not say it’s impossible in 3 or 4 months from now he defects from the Lib Dems to the Tories, but as for Change UK which for now is the current latest party which Chuka Umunna has departed, well they’re being forced to change their name after a legal dispute. Apparently petitions website Change.org have threatened to sue Change UK’s remaining MPs if they don’t change the name of their party. I always objected to the name Change UK not because I’m stupid enough to confuse it with Change.org, but due to the fact the last thing Change UK want is change, they wanted the same old Blairite bullshit which had been worn out completely by 2008’s financial crisis if not prior, well I’ve got a few suggestions for alternative names for Change UK, how about ‘Middle Of The Road Mediocrity’, no bollocks to that lets cut to the chase with ‘Disgruntled Blairites United’, actually more apt would be ‘Blairite Malcontent Losers’.

The LE2019 Results Weren’t A ‘Remain Backlash’ But A Return To The Lib Dems Being The Vote Of Protest

Because the Liberal Democrats & The Green Party were the two parties who had the best local election results & because both parties have been the two parties who put the most effort into vigorously opposing Brexit, Remainers have drawn the conclusion that the local election results equal there being a ‘remain backlash’, I’m personally far more cautious in drawing the conclusion these local election results are a ‘remain backlash’, as often said one swallow does not a summer make & I’d wait until after May 23rd & we know the results of the European Parliamentary Elections to draw any conclusions as to whether there’s a definite change in attitude towards Brexit amongst the electorate.

Yes on the face of it, UKIP’s vote collapsing & the two parties who have been most ardent in opposing Brexit coming out on top with net seats gained at the local elections does seem as if there might be a change of attitude amongst the electorate towards Brexit, it’s certainly weird considering time & time again during the local elections campaign it was reported that canvassers from all parties were being met on the doorstep with hostility about Brexit not being delivered, however my explanation for the Lib Dems doing as well as they did is that this is a return to the Lib Dems being the electorate’s favourite protest vote.

The Lib Dems returning to being everybody’s favourite protest vote

Prior to the 2010 General Election the Liberal Democrats were always the electorate’s favourite protest vote, but in the aftermath of the 2010 General Election & the Lib Dems jumping into bed with the Tories, it was UKIP who emerged as the alternate protest vote whilst the Lib Dems were busy propping up David Cameron’s Tory government & losing their deposits at by-elections & having lousy local election results, I guess now enough time has passed since the end of the coalition government & peeps are now willing to vote Lib Dem again, even though I’d never vote Lib Dem ever again after betray the progressive vote back in 2010 & other local misdeeds, I’m actually glad that things seemed to have reverted back to how they use to be prior to the 2010 General Election, I mean I’d much prefer peeps voted for a party which is supposedly progressively slightly left of centre then vote UKIP who’ve I always thought had a far-right stench about them.

As for the Green Party doing well at these local elections, I think it’s a different reason as why the Lib Dems did well, it was a still a protest vote but a protest vote which has come as a consequence of the recent Extinction Rebellion protests in London pushing the issue of climate change up the political agenda.

Me thinks averting climate catastrophe is a far more important issue then fucking Brexit, yet the Tories by the admissions of their own ministers have been fiddling the figures on carbon reduction to make them look better then the real figures actually are, UKIP are so troglodyte they don’t think man made climate-change is a real thing, the Lib Dems say they want to take action to tackle climate-change but in my experience the Lib Dems perpetually say one thing & do another, as for Labour well there’s talk if they get back into government of reopening frigging coal mines (err what the fuck?!?!), so no wonder peeps might have been voting for the Green Party in larger numbers at these local elections, yes to truly make a difference in tackling climate change it takes multilateral action at an international level, but there’s plenty which can be done at a local level to improve the environment & I hope those Green Party councillors elected on Thursday can make a difference.
