The Political Relevance Of MasterChef: The Professionals

So yesterday celebrity chef Gary Rhodes died, oh shit he didn’t eat one of his own range of frozen meals did he, I heard they won’t be burying or cremating Gary Rhodes but serving him at his own wake along buttery mashed potatoes & a bearnaise sauce.

Gary Rhodes

Gary Rhodes’s first television appearance came courtesy of Keith Floyd & just about every celebrity chef has Keith Floyd to thank for their media careers as it was Keith who invented the modern celebrity chef & also by playing anarchically with the conventions of television helped to revolutionise the way programs were presented. I loved Keith Floyd as he loved a drink, loved a smoke, loved rugby & surprising was a fan somewhat of Punk Rock & well I love a drink & a smoke & I’m a fan of rugby & as you might have noticed I’m Punk Rock as fuck. I guess what I loved most about Keith Floyd was that he didn’t give a flying fuck for conformity or convention, sure his rebellious nature led him to do stuff like cook whale in Greenland which certainly was ethically dodgy, I still think the world would have been a far duller place without his televisual antics despite how dodgy some of those antics might have been. Of course the irony with the circumstances surrounding Keith Floyd’s death in 2009 was Keith died of a heart attack whilst sitting down to watch a television documentary about himself & I remember distinctly in that documentary when asked what he thought of the then crop of celebrity chefs he responded by saying they were all a bunch of cunts & I couldn’t agree with Keith Floyd more.

Keith Floyd

I saw Marcus Wareing was one of the celebrity chefs who has led the tributes being paid to Gary Rhodes & of course Marcus is one of the judges of Masterchef: The professionals along with chef Monica Galetti & the ever-present as well as ever excitable hired spoon Gregg Wallace. With there being a new series of Masterchef: The Professionals currently airing 8pm on BBC2 Tuesday to Thursday, I see Monica Galetti has yet again changed her hairstyle for yet another series, funny how when people get on television they start doing stuff like that & start acting like nightmarish divas, I remember the police sitcom The Thin Blue Line making a joke about this in the episode when the police at whatever nick it was were going feature in a reality television series & the bald detective got himself a bleach blonde hair transplant circa Bruce Willis in the Fifth Element. When I first saw Monica Galetti on Masterchef: The Professionals I thought she was one of those earnest chefs who was only interested in food excellence but I guess one shouldn’t be surprised she’s succumbed to the temptation of celebrity, I mean 20 years ago Gordon fucking Ramsey said he hated the tag ‘celebrity chef’ but now Gordon fucking Ramsey is one of highest paid celebrities in the world

Monica’s always telling contesting chefs on Masterchef: The Professionals she likes their dishes but…

I have a but for Monica, a giant fucking but, which is Monica you might very well like a contesting chef’s pouncier then pouncy dish BUT there will be people choosing between heating & eating this Christmas, Monica you might very well like a contesting chef’s pouncier then pouncy dish BUT there are in an increasing number of people homeless & starving on the streets of Britain. I’m so fucking fed up with celebrity chefs attempting to make anybody who’s ever eaten a KFC bucket feel inadequate for having done so or inadequate because they can only afford a 10p tin of beans on a slice of stale toast for tea, some of us have fuck all choice but to shop at Audi & Poundland or rely on food banks, actually have any of these celebrity chefs such as Marcus Wareing or Michel Roux Jr ever visited a food bank, how about any of the critics you often see on Masterchef: The Professionals such as Jay Rayner or William Sitwell, yeah I can see Jay Rayner’s column in the Observer after having visited his first food bank & him moaning the food he was given being too bland.

Marcus Wareing, Gegg Wallace & Monica Galetti

We are currently in midst of a General Election campaign where there’s a debate about the damage done by a decade of austerity & the BBC are taking the piss again upon those hardest hit by austerity with airing yet another series of Masterchef: The Professionals which is the personification of food snobbery & utter middle-class wank, it’s only the middle-classes who can afford to eat out at whatever chain of poncified restaurants or have stocked in their kitchen at home stuff like kale chips & avocados & focaccia bread & fair-trade coffee. I really hate the middle-classes sometimes, they’re the kind of people who complain about Quentin Tarantino movies being too violent when somebody is murdered yet watch Midsomer Murders where there’s plenty of murders going on just the murders in Midsomer are sanitised, yeah as if the act of murder was ever sanitised, what a bunch of hypocrites.

The worse of the middle-classes aren’t the Tory voting middle-classes as you expect them to be snooty cunts, no in fact its middle-class metropolitan lefties who are the worse, because there will be a situation where a load of middle-class lefty wankers will have gathered for some dinner party & whilst scoffing canopies & swigging wine they’ll be chatting about how badly the Tories are treating disabled people yet there won’t have been any disabled person invited to this dinner party. Believe me lefty middle-class types are just as likely any snooty Tory middle-class type to cross the street if they see a disabled person walking towards them, a couple years ago I actually went to a party attended by a load of lefty middle class types & I was made to feel very unwelcome simply for being disabled.

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.

Tories Think Its Disgusting To Say Shit About Tory Boy But Not To Murder Tens Of Thousands Of Disabled People

Tories have been acting all butthurt & getting their panties in a serious bind due to the flack lefty shitlords such as myself have been giving their oh so not subtle Tory Boy plant in the audience of last night’s edition of BBC Question Time, fuck me the resemblance of this swotty wanker who’s possibly the offspring of a one night stand between Jacob Rees Mogg & his nanny looks way too uncanny to Harry Enfield’s Tory Boy character from his 90s comedy sketch show, Harry’s Tory Boy character might’ve been a satirically comedic response to then Tory leader William Hague but has turned out to be frigging prophetic when it comes to swotty wanker Nathan from Brighton in 2019’s Question Time audience who of course waffled on about fucking Brexit, I bet Nathan is a bundle of fun at whatever school he attends when he’s not rushing to the toilet to wank himself crazy over photos of Margret Thatcher & Ayn Rand novels.

Nathan from Brighton looks uncannily Harry Enfield’s Tory Boy

Of course Tory twats are going to think the response of lefty shitlords such as myself to Nathan from Brighton is ‘disgusting’ & ‘intolerant’ & get all butthurt, despite the fact one chooses to be a Tory Boy but doesn’t choose to be disabled, despite what’s truly disgusting & intolerant is that the Tories have murdered 100,000 plus disabled people over the past decade & persecuted countless others for the mistakes of their banker chums.

Tory Boy Nathan from Brighton might waffle on about Brexit on BBC Question but hey it’s the same deal with the rest of the BBC’s current affairs output & across the rest of the mainstream news media, we are currently well over a week into this general election & I’ve heard fuck all from the appearance of any political pundit or politician about the effects of Tory austerity & the dismantling of the welfare state upon disabled people, all I’ve heard is Brexit this & Brexit that, Brexit, Brexit fucking cunting precious Brexit!

I think we all knew Brexit would be the issue which dominated this election, I also knew the mainstream media with its Tory bias would push harder then during the last General Election campaign to ensure the major talking point of this General Election was Brexit & not have a repeat of the last General Election where the Tories tried to make the General Election campaign all about Brexit but Labour managed to change the narrative somewhat, all of which is why I’ve repeatedly posted on social-media that leftwing pundits & politicians when given a media platform get more forceful in reminding all there are more important issues then fucking Brexit precious Brexit & to derail the mainstream news media’s agenda of having Brexit dominate this election.

I’m not denying Brexit isn’t a major issue but I just wish some politician appearing on Politics Live or on Peston or any other mainstream news media current affairs show said bollocks to Brexit it’s a distraction to the amount of vulnerable people the Tories are persecuting & killing because it’s the truth & I think it would be enough of a refreshing thought bomb to begin waking people from the mass Brexit malaise which has infected the minds of millions.

If the Tories win another term with a parliamentary majority I serious dread to think of the amount of disabled & vulnerable people they’ll kill in the next 5 years, the most at stake with this General Election is for disabled people because what is at stake for disabled people is our lives.

Why It Is I Detest Tories? (Part 2)

In part one of ‘Why It Is I Detest Tories?’, I explained my hostility towards the Tories with every has been exacerbated by having witnessed as a disabled person the Tories since they returned to government in 2010 persecute & kill disabled people so they could reward their wealthy bankster chums with tax breaks & having Tory voters live in total fucking denial about the crimes-against-humanity which have been perpetrated against disabled people by this Tory government & in fact in many incidents wanting to live in total fucking denial about the crimes-against-humanity having been perpetrated against disabled by this Tory government rather then acknowledging the murder of 100,000 plus vulnerable people so the boys in the city can party with their annual bonuses like it was pre-2008.

But it’s not in fact the Tories committing genocide against disabled people in the UK which ignited my utter loathing of Tories knowing they’re the epitome of evil, nor was it me coming of political age during the Tory government of Margret Thatcher who made naked greed & income inequality & poverty socially acceptable thus destroying countless lives in the process, nor is it those repressed social-conservative conformist arseholes who because they’re so fucking miserable being repressed conformist arseholes think everybody else should be just as fucking miserable as they are in being made to be repressed conformist arseholes, yes all this has certainly fuelled my fire in detesting the Tories over the past few decades but it’s something far more fundamentality personal as to what originally ignited my loathing of Tories & made me realise they were the epitome of evil.

Though Tories tend to be a great deal more socially liberal then they were when I was growing up, you still get the odd social-conservative Tory who bangs on about the family values & my response to any Tory who does bang on about family values is to gut laugh then some, you see my oh so well to do wealthy South African family are uber conservatives who buy into & preach all that family values bullshit, but didn’t exactly practiced what they preached when it came to disabled me.

My mother wasn’t the most mentally well of people & blow her brains out with a shotgun when I was almost 5 years old, now if losing one’s mother in such tragic circumstances wasn’t enough of a trauma then it was made worse as if the aftermath my family didn’t do what families would usually do & step in to care for me, my family rejected me for being disabled, because my oh so well to do family cared more about money & privilege then they did for disabled me, literally it was not wanting disabled me around because they reckon it will hold them back from keeping up with Jones, they thought me too much of a fucking embarrassment for them to be further juiced into the establishment.

My family where happy to dump me on the British state (handy I have a British passport) & repeatedly told me well into my late adolescence that ‘I belonged to the state’, yes the state which my family aren’t prepared to pay for as they’re tax exiles living abroad, this really is the bitter cherry on top of the cake of turd when it comes to my family rejecting me.

My family being the utter evil cunts they were towards me as a traumatised disabled child was my introduction to the mentality of conservatives & is it any wonder I detest Tories as much as I do?!?!? Oh but of course some Tory wanker will try to lecture me about how just because my family treated me in such appalling manner when I was a child it doesn’t mean all Tories are as bad. Yes I’m sure not all Tories are as bad as my family, some Tories might actually be far worse, oh if you’re trying to tell me not all Tories are unsympathetic towards the plight of disabled people, then why is it every Tory I know chooses to live in denial about the Tory government’s treatment of disabled people & cling on judgmental fallacies peddled by the Tory press about disabled people in receipt of welfare, you see my family as well as not wanting disabled me around because I didn’t match the curtains & cushion covers, just absolutely refused to understand the difficulties I have as a disabled person & this seems to be a common Tory trait.

Why It Is I Detest Tories? (Part I)

Why do I hate the Tories so?? I’m often asked this typically in response to the numerous anti Tory rants I’ve composed, usually asked in exclaim by Tory voters because I’ve repeatedly stated that those who vote Tory have just as much blood on their hands for voting Tory scumbag fucks into office, hey if you vote evil Tory scumbag fuck politicians into government you’ve enabled those evil Tory scumbag fucks to do evil shit such as inflict fucking misery upon the most vulnerable in society & killing 130,000 disabled people & thus you’re just as culpable for that misery the Tories are inflicting upon the most vulnerable & the crimes against humanity the Tories are guilty of in their mass slaughter of disabled people.

I use have a stalker who I nicknamed Terry the Tory Troll because his name was Terrence Godfrey & he was a lifelong Tory & he use to stalk me around various blogs slash news sites I’ve written for & troll me in the comment sections of articles I had written in particular where I didn’t have editorial privileges to moderate the comment section, well amongst other bullshit he’d accuse me of being a bigot for continuously exposing the Tories for being the evil fucks they happen to be, yeah according to this fucking idiot douchebag troll calling out the Tories for being evil fucks for killing innocent disabled people so they could reward their wealthy bankster chums with tax breaks was being a bigot, err what the fuck?!?! You CHOOSE to be a Tory but you DON’T CHOOSE to be disabled, bigotry by any definition is when you’re hateful & discriminatory about stuff people can’t help such as the colour of their skin or their ethnicity or their gender identity or their sexual orientation & Terry the Tory Troll was certainly bigoted by that definition as he was constantly racist towards shall we say about people of Middle Eastern extraction & then there was numerous attempts to dox me after I came out as trans & constant attempts delegitimise my gender identity.

More recently it’s been Kellie Maloney who said to me I seemed to be intolerant to opinions which aren’t my own, well I’m not going to be tolerant to those who support austerity when I know all too well about its fatal consequences on disabled people. I’m not saying Kellie wouldn’t be prepared to find out stuff for herself, but in my experience when I’ve challenged conservatives to come & find out what life is like for those on the bottom of the heap rather then bury their heads in the sand about the true fatal impact of austerity & buying into the fallacies the Tory press has peddled about what life is really like for those at the bottom of the heap, they’ve seemed unwilling to take me up on my challenge & seem to prefer to carry on living in denial & hang on to their ill-informed prejudices, yeah who’s now being fucking narrowminded?

Of course somebody will no doubt say why would any Tory supporter take you up on your challenge to find out what life is like for you & other disabled people when you call all Tories evil fucks & say all Tory voters have blood on their hands, yeah well has it ever to anyone that the reason I say what I do in the manner I do is due to the anger & frustration of disabled people not being heard despite numerous polite representations having been made to the Tory government over the past decade to cease their persecution of disabled people but to no avail, the Tories aren’t listening, nobody is actually hearing how petrified a disabled person like myself is about the future, how suicidally depressed I’m becoming particularly knowing a Boris Johnson led government will drag the Tories ever farther to the hard-right & thus many more disabled & vulnerable people will be killed, all there is left is the cathartic release of screaming offence.

Francesca Martinez & Jo Brand

Comedian & disability rights campaigner Francesca Martinez was a panellist on last night’s edition of the BBC’s political debate show Question Time & gave one of most impassioned speeches which a Question Time audience & viewers at home would have ever heard from any individual who has appeared as a QT panellist, as this was a speech about the Tories having “blood on its hands” for the deaths of 130,000 disabled people who’ve died as a consequence of austerity which the Tories have reeked upon the most vulnerable in society, a speech from somebody who like myself is a disabled person as like myself she suffers from cerebral palsy.

Francesca Martinez

Sure I’ve been screaming for the best part of decade about the Tories having blood on their hands from the austerity they’ve reeked upon the most vulnerable & the Tories ‘welfare reform’ program is a euphemism for rewarding banksters at the expense of killing disabled people, I’ve said many times that I’d want to see the likes of former DWP minister Esther McVey & in particular former DWP Secretary of state Iain Duncan Smith to see the inside of a prison cell for crimes against humanity because that’s what being responsible for killing over 100,000 people happens to fucking be, however it was Francesca Martinez not I who was panellist on the BBC’s Question Time & from what I’ve seen her appearance has certainly caused a stir amongst sections of the news media, however sadly I’m not so certain Francesca Martinez’s speech made such an impact with the Question Time audience or with viewers at home.

I’ve encountered over the years way too many rightwing morons & Tory twats who’ve been in complete fucking denial about what the cruelty & outright evil wickedness the Tories have inflicted upon people with disabilities, so no fucking surprise at all there were examples on Twitter in response to Francesca Martinez & her speech.

I think you’d lose any ‘objectivity’ if you’re disabled person who’s spent the best part of a decade witnessing the Tory government murder over 100,000 fellow disabled people, I think if you were a disabled person like me or Francesca Martinez you’d be fucking livid & then some!

As for the actual Question Time audience itself, well they were silent whilst Francesca spoke & considering the QT audience is often made up of Daily Mail readers & members of the Tory party (seriously it is) they must have been squirming uncomfortably in their seats whilst Francesca detailed the consequence of them voting Tory, yeah as far as I’m concerned it’s not just not the those in the Tory government who’ve the blood of disabled people they’ve murdered on their hands, but also those who voted for those murdering motherfucking Tory scumbags! But other than polite applause for Francesca’s speech from the QT audience, I don’t recall any comeback from the audience to the points Francesca taised, the audience seemed far more interested as ever in obsessing about fucking Brexit, I kind of think the murder of over 100,000 of the most vulnerable people & tackling climate change is far more important than frigging Brexit, but fuck me has Nigel Farage done a number in turning people into Brexit precious Brexit Gollum like creatures.

Talking of the pompous racist, Nigel Farage has been getting his panties in a bind about Jo Brand making a joke about throwing battery acid at politicians whilst appearing on a BBC Radio 4 program. I’m not going to defend Jo Brand’s gag as it’s now the subject of a police investigation & being as she’s a Labour Party member I wonder if she’ll be facing disciplinary action from the party for her comments as people have been expelled for less, but I will point out Farage’s double standards as the pound shop Oswald Mosley is forever practising stochastic terrorism with bullshit like he’d pick up a rifle if he doesn’t get the Brexit he wants, it was this very point which Francesca Martinez made when a question from an audience member was obviously asked about the appropriateness or inappropriateness of Jo Brand’s joke as it’s been a major political talking point over the past few days.

Francesca Martinez has been the Question Time panellist who’s said everything I’d want to say; she was fucking awesome!

The Stupid Things Trans Women Say

A fellow trans woman said to me recently that I seemed preoccupied far more with political issues other then pertaining to trans equality thus I’m seriously out-of-the-loop when it comes to what’s happening currently with trans activism, oh geez I’m sorry for not being yet another trans woman blogger exclusively obsessing about trans stuff, geez I’m sorry that as well as being born trans, I was also born disabled & Jewish & thus have a greater sense of intersectionality, Any sense of intersectionality is something severely lacking when it comes to many a trans women I’ve encountered, if I seriously set about detailing the amount of disabilist bullshit I’ve been subjected to from other trans women over the years, it would be more than a separate lengthy article I’d find myself writing but possibly a book’s worth & book worth’s in several volumes. Many trans people really haven’t learnt from the mantra that if you don’t care about the plight of other victimised people then why should other victimised people care about your own plight, because disabilist bullshit isn’t the only kind of bigoted & intolerant bullshit I’ve heard being expressed by other trans women towards other oppressed sections of society, I’ve heard plenty of racism (including out & out antisemitism) & even heard a good dose of homophobia however strange that might seem to those outside trans circles.

I currently hear an awful lot of obsessive fretting from middle-class trans women insecure about whether post the Tory leadership contest there’s still going to be support from the Tory government for the new Gender Recognition Act & whether self-identification for trans people will become a reality, now I do support self-identification for trans people as cis people don’t have to go through the rigmarole of a medical quango to have their gender identity confirmed then why should trans people have to, but for me personally it’s the Tories having killed more than 100,000 disabled people & could potentially kill thousands more post the Tory leadership contest which is somewhat more of a priority to be highlighting & campaigning about. I’ve heard very little condemnation from the majority of trans women concerning the Tories murdering tens of thousands of disabled people & persecuting thousands more into destitution, I’m not denying that things could get a whole load bleaker for trans people if the Tories do lurch further to the hard-right, but if the Tories do drop support for the new Gender Recognition Act, I don’t think any middle-class trans women is going to die from self-identification not becoming a legal reality, whereas its almost guaranteed that whoever does become the next Tory Prime Minister will continue with the same Tory economic policies which are persecuting & killing disabled people & the situation could become a great deal worse for disabled people as a consequence of Brexit.

My own personal experience of the trans community as disabled trans woman having interacted is that in the exceptionally rare likelihood that a trans woman was to ever physically assault a severely disabled person with a crowbar, a large proportion of the trans community would actually side with the trans woman & if not defend them assaulting that disabled person they would make excuses for them doing so, this in a manner of speaking has in fact happened to me because some of the most vicious disabilist abuse I’ve received from other trans women has come from some very prominent trans activists & when I’ve gone public about the kind of disabilist discrimination I’ve been subjected to by (for a lack of a better term) ‘celebrity’ trans women well the trans community as a whole has refused to address such abuse rather preferring to make excuses for those who are guilty (if not outrightly defending them) & trying to sweep it all under the carpet.

I know some trans women will try to lecture me that the reason I’m not well regarded & I don’t get listened to within the trans community is due to me constantly kicking trans people in articles which I write & if I tried to do something constructively positive in support of trans people then maybe I’d be listened to more. It’s simply not true that all ever do is knock trans people in articles I write, because whenever I write about LGBTQ issues I’m forever making an effort never to ignore the plight of trans people when many other writers would, as for doing something constructively positive in support of trans people, well I’ve tried to organise protests & campaigns in defence of trans rights & advocating greater social justice for trans people & I was forever getting heckled & cut down by other trans people to the point I had to walk away from full on trans activism for the sake of my own psychological wellbeing. Yeah fellow trans women might complain I’m seriously out-of-the-loop when it comes to what’s happening currently with trans activism, but it’s not as if I haven’t tried to be very much in-the-loop regards trans activism, but the majority of trans people very much appear not to actually want me to be in-the-loop regards trans activism, they don’t want likes of me involved period.

I was invited to an activist meeting at the beginning of this year by Jane Fae who is one of the few trans activists who does value my opinion, but when I expressed a fear that not much concern was been shown about YouTube shitlord hatemongers such as Paul Joseph Watson propagating transphobic shite despite his subscriber base being larger than the weekly circulation then all the British broadsheet newspapers combined, I had my opinion very much pooh-poohed & maligned because the truth is most trans activists who go to activist meetings are generally White, middle-class, university educated & so think the that it’s only the opinion of the broadsheet newspapers which count because politicians tend to read broadsheets, never mind the generation of haters which the likes of Paul Joseph Watson & Carl Benjamin & other YouTube shitlord hatemongers are helping to breed which for those of us who don’t own a car will have contend with when we walk down the street.

It never seems I can do right for trans people, for instance last week Paris Lees tweeted some made up bullshit transphobic bigots were propagating about her wanting to shag everything in sight when she eventually had a fully functional vagina & so in response I tweeted in defence of Paris & trans women in general about how transphobic bigots are always trying to make out how trans women are sex starved maniacs, because TERFs (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) in particular are always making out that trans women are actually sex crazed men who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces with the intention of sexually assaulting cis women, which of course is complete & un utter bollocks. So a couple of days after I defended Paris on Twitter, a trans woman started bitching at me about how I was making out Paris was a slut, err what the fuck?!?! Hey I’m as liberal as they come, the less sexually repressed people are & the more fucking & sucking going on the better the world would be, I’ve not got a clue how my defence of Paris was making her out to be a slut, in fact I’m 110% sure it fucking wasn’t, but this latest incident well just illustrates the stupid shit trans women say to me & is another reason why I don’t concentrate on writing about other matters.

Strewth! It’s Masterchef Australia

The overdramatic music & cheesy voice over, presented by at least one Aussie chef & an eccentric Englishmen, who get way too fucking overexcited in a extremely blokey manner about dishes cooked by contestants all of whom weirdly always seem to be oh so very middle-class with personal backstories which are tediously boring as fuck & who also get way too excited & giddy in cringeworthy fangirl/fanboy fashion anytime there’s a guest appearance by a some supposed celebrity chef who’s names you don’t recognise & who you don’t really care about, no folks it’s not Masterchef, it’s Masterchef Australia.

Believe it or not, Masterchef Australia has been one of the most watched shows on network television down-under over the past decade, there was in fact a general election campaign being fought when the first season of Masterchef Australia was being aired on television & the televised debate between the leaders of the various political parties in Australia had to be rescheduled as it was going to clash with the season finale of Masterchef Australia, me thinks some Aussies really do have their priorities fucked up, oh & unlike the British version of Masterchef which is aired over period of about a month & half once or twice a week maybe 3 times in finals week, Masterchef Australia is aired every weeknight over a 3 month to 4 month period, the Aussies really seemed to have gotten an appetite for foodie snobby in a big way.

I know some might be scratching their head thinking when did Aussies get so into being foodie snobs, probably because they still think according to Monty Python everybody in Australia is called Bruce & are unsophisticated morons, it’s that or they reckon the difference between a pot of yoghurt & Australia is that yoghurt has culture. Though I’ve never visited Australia, I’d imagine it’s pretty much like any other westernised neoliberal capitalist society who’s middle-class are disappearing up its own pouncy foodie arsehole whilst the under-class/working-class struggle to put food on the table. I’d imagine there are an increasing number of people relying on the Australian equivalent to food banks otherwise they’ll starve, particularly as Australia like the UK have re-elected successive conservative governments over the past decade & we know conservative governments don’t give a shit about poor & vulnerable people starving & ending up destitute, but hey poor & vulnerable people living down under never mind that your struggling to put food on the table, here’s some daily televisual entertainment for 3 months of the year consisting of middle-class wankers with their heads stuffed well & truly up their own foodie arses competing to cook pouncy & pouncier food (the likes of which you’ll never get to eat) in the hope they’ll become an even more pouncier cheffy cunt.

Of course Masterchef Australia isn’t the only version of Masterchef around the globe, there’s Masterchef U.S which is presented by fucking Gordon fucking Ramsey who’s slightly less cuntish as a presenter in the way he treats people though this doesn’t mean he’s any less of gigantic cunt, there’s Masterchef Canada which like the U.S version is more of reality gameshow then cookery competition. There was even a version of Masterchef in my native South Africa though it only lasted for two or three seasons, this might of been because a majority of the contestants were middle-class White people whilst a great proportion of indigenous Black population live in abject fucking poverty, racial apartheid might have gone in South Africa but its left an economic apartheid divided along racial lines, where if you’re White you’ll still far more likely to be economically better off then many of the majority Black population.

Return Of The Great British Sickbag

The reason this article is entitled Return Of The Great British Sickbag is due to having penned an article about 6 0r 7 years ago entitled The Great British Sickbag for what was supposedly an upcoming satirical news site which is no longer upcoming as it no longer exists, the article was inspired by that time on the BBC’s culinary television competition program The Great British Menu when chef Johnny Mountain had a cheffy tantrum then proceeded (off camera) to smash up the kitchen & storm off the show because Marcus Wareing gave him low marks for the fish dish he served up. Fuck me its really going to bring a great deal of solace (NOT!) to those who are suffering from malnutrition in this country due to a combination of austerity & inflation with the price of basic food staples & dream of being able to afford a few more bake beans on stale piece of toast, to be having a pouncy chef essentially tell another pouncy chef that their pouncy fish dish is essentially shite when it was more then likely perfectly edible, oh never mind getting upset about those starving because of war or drought or pestilence nah get upset as motherfucker because your fish dish isn’t pouncy enough for pouncy foodie VIPs to gorge on at some pouncy banquet, for fucks sake this world is seriously fucked up in so many more fucking ways then I realise!!!!!!!

So last week I was watching the judging finals of the most recent series of the Great British Menu whilst eating a bag of chips (no seriously I was eating a bag of chips) & one of the pouncy chefs produced a dish inspired by Punk Rock, err what the fuck!?!?! I can’t think of anything more antithetical to the ethos of Punk Rock then a pouncy chef producing a pouncy dish in the hope its served at some pouncy banquet for pouncy VIP foodies to gorge on, believe me I might dress like a hippy but as you might of noticed my attitude is very Punk fucking Rock! I’ve been into Punk Rock since I was in my teens & I can tell you chefs using water baths & blow tortures & whatever the fuck it is Heston Blumenthal does, it ain’t Punk Rock, it’s a musical equivalent to all that fuck awful 70s prog rock with bands like Yes & Genesis which Punk Rock was in many ways a backlash to.

John Lydon of the Sex Pistols said in Julien Temple’s excellent Filth & The Fury documentary film on the Sex Pistols that Punk Rock needed to happen because in the mid-1970s when there were race riots, hyper inflation & industrial strife, the middle-classes were parading around the Kings Road in Chelsea with fancy coiffeur hair does & fancy boutique clothing in some kind of dreamlike haze when two streets away the garbage was piling up because the refuge workers were out on strike, yeah well that’s how I feel about pouncy chefs cooking pouncy food on our television screens when an increasing number of those likely watching are having to rely on food banks otherwise they & their families will starve.

For me Punk Rock was a fuck you to the establishment for saying the dispossessed underclass are shit, it was the underclass adopting the DIY ethos to further artistic endeavours no matter which snooty cunt told them they were talentless. I’m very much a Punk Rock writer, I suffer from a form of dyslexia which means I have fuck all understanding of grammar, but no matter who picks me up on this & food critic Jay Rayner did with my last rant about foodie bullshit, no matter how scathing people can be, I continue to persist as a writer & will continue to persist.

The Tears Of Theresa May

Whilst giving her resignation speech yesterday morning, Theresa May started blubbering, well I for one have not one jot of sympathy for the tears of Theresa May.

Theresa May blubbering during her resignation speech

I know some will try to make out she’s a fellow human being I must have some ounce of sympathy for Theresa May getting all teary, obviously she’s a fellow human being, but she’s a human being who’s helped to inflict a great deal of pain & hardship on other humans, many of whom are some of the most vulnerable people in society, Theresa May wasn’t getting all teary in regretting the pain she’s inflicted on those far less fortunate then herself, no she was blubbering about her own privileged situation, the bitch was feeling sorry for herself so fuck her!

Doubt Theresa May is going to have to rely on a food bank when she’s out of work, but an increasing number of people who are in fact in fulltime employment are having to rely on food banks otherwise they’ll starve, in work poverty has risen under There May’s premiership just as it did under David Cameron’s, did you know about 14 million people in Britain are now living in poverty that’s almost a quarter of the fucking population, just last week there was yet another UN report condemning rising poverty in Britain, this follows on from 2 UN reports condemning the treatment of disabled people in this country, ah yes how many more thousands of disabled people died under Theresa May’s tenure as she continued with the Tories ‘welfare reform’ program.

When Theresa May became Prime Minister in 2016, she promised to tackle ‘burning injustices’, well that’s be proven to be an utter hollow promise, if you’re a disabled person needing government assistance to have any kind of life its been proven to be complete & utter bollocks! Over a decade on from the financial crisis disabled people are still being persecuted for the mistakes of banksters, Theresa May is just as responsible as Iain Duncan Smith & Esther McVey & any other Tory scumbag for this.

Probably the worse thing about Theresa May’s legacy is she’s allowed the Tory Party to drift further to the hard right, but hey the signs were all there this would happen when she was Home Secretary Not only as Home Secretary did she ferment a hostile environment for immigrants, remember those vans with billboards splattered with anti-immigrant propaganda which is the kind thing you’d expect to see in some Orwellian fascistic state, May without mercy detained & deported immigrants denying them basic rights like medical treatment & then complained that the Human Rights Act prevented her from being even more evil motherfucker towards immigrants.

Theresa May once bemoaned people perceived the Tories as the ‘nasty party’, well she’s done her level best in contributing to the Tories being the nasty party which now will only get nastier, because the worse of the worse when it comes to the legacy of Theresa May is whichever Tory scumbag replaces her will be far nastier then she’s been that’s fucking guaranteed!
