Queen drummer Roger Taylor has been awarded an OBE in the 2020 New Year honours, is that for services in supporting the Apartheid regime in South Africa during the 1980s, yeah the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody kind of swept under the carpet that the band broke the cultural boycott there was against the then uber racist Apartheid regime in South Africa when they were paid a shit ton of cash to play the Sun City resort which was the South African equivalent to Las Vegas but you know just for White people. I’ll give Roger Taylor some credit as he has admitted Queen played Sun City during the Apartheid era because the band were offered a shit loads of cash to do so & he does regret having done so, but Queen’s guitarist Brian May still to this day defends the band having done so despite now posing as some born again animal rights lefty who has said nice things about Jeremy Corbyn, err has somebody pointed out to Brian that Jeremy was arrested protesting Apartheid whilst he & Roger & Freddie & the other one happily took the Apartheid regime’s blood money, by the way along with Jeremy Corbyn a teenage me also campaigned against the utter racial injustice which was Apartheid. Some people now consider the Apartheid era in South Africa as ‘ancient history’ & so I’m often asked why I still bollock on about it, well Apartheid in South Africa was my political awakening, it’s what turned me into a lifelong political activist, plus it’s not ‘ancient history’ it still has relevance today just look at the Israeli government’s treatment of the Palestinian people.
I’d not be surprised if somebody unearths evidence photographic or otherwise that Boris Johnson attended back in the 1980s the Springbok Club which was the Tory pro-Apartheid group along with disgraced former Tory MP Neil Hamilton & Thomas Meir the far-right terrorist who assassinated Labour MP Jo Cox, hey I’d not be surprised if Iain Duncan Smith was also an attendee at far-right pro-Apartheid meetings back in the day.
Ah but of course what’s caught the headlines regards the 2020 New Year honours is the knighthood being awarded to Iain Duncan Smith, though the mainstream media are generally spinning it as former Tory party leader being awarded a knighthood not the man who as DWP secretary has been responsible for murdering tens of thousands of disabled people. Iain Duncan Shit should be in prison for crimes against humanity not be given a knighthood, because yes crimes against humanity, fucking genocide, is what you call you it when you set about murdering over 100,000 disabled people, fuck me if you going to knight an evil Tory cunt like Iain Duncan Shit who’s guilty of fucking genocide why not give fucking knighthoods to Hitler, Stalin & fucking Pol Pot!
I realise Iain Duncan Smith is getting a knighthood for having managed Boris Johnson’s Tory leadership campaign, but however anybody tries to spin it it’s still insulting as fuck to disabled people, well hey 2020s might be a different decade but it will still be the same old Tory genocide against disabled people.
One question I have is if Boris is giving Iain Duncan Smith a knighthood for helping him be elected Tory leader in the 2020 New Year honours then why hasn’t Laura Kuenssberg not been made a dame or given some other bullshit honour as she along the BBC helped Boris in winning GE2019 with a thumping parliamentary majority? I can’t think of anybody more fitting then Laura Kuenssberg to get a gong from the palace for services to the Tory Party because BBC Chief Political Editor nah bollocks she is the BBC Chief Tory propagandist mouthpiece.
