Rant #3 About BBC Question Time: The Off The Shoulder Irrelevance Whilst The Fourth State is In Peril

So at a Downing Street press briefing on Monday, there was a mass walkout by journalists when a senior communications adviser to Boris Johnson tried to exclude reporters from various publications including the Mirror & the Independent & the Huffington Post, even the BBC’s Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg who many have thought has her tongue way too far up the arse of Boris Johnson walkout in solidarity.

But rather then debate Boris Johnson being a pound shop Donald Trump by taking inspiration from Trump’s fascist playbook in undermining freedom of the press to question the government of the day which is a cornerstone of any liberal democracy, last night’s edition of BBC Question Time dedicated more fucking time to debating Labour Shadow Secretary of State for Culture & Sport Tracy Brabin wearing an off-the-shoulder dress in parliament, for fucks sake never fucking mind the government of Boris Johnson threatening the freedom the press its apparently more important to be debating an MP wearing an off-the-shoulder dress at the dispatch box because Piers Morgan has been getting in a fucking tizzy about her doing so. It wasn’t just the complete & utter irrelevance about what kind of dress a female MP happened to be wearing which makes one livid, Labour MP Stella Creasy who was one of panellists on last night’s edition of Question was pretty livid that the shite being flung at Tracy Babin for the dress she happen to have been wearing in parliament on Tuesday is blatant sexism, which it most definitely is, but hey that figures perfectly as the likes of Piers Morgan is a sexist pig being as he’s an all round gammon bigot.

Tracy Brabin

Prominent disability rights activist Adam Pearson was alongside Stella Creasy as one of the panellists on last night’s edition of BBC Question Time & yet there were no questions from the audience about any issues relating to disability, yeah because what fashions MPs happen to be wearing is apparently far more fucking important then the Tories having murdered over a 100,000 disabled people. Of course the BBC would defend what gets debated on Question Time by saying it’s dependent on the questions asked by audience members & QT’s presenter Fiona Bruce did try to use this as a defence when you could hear mutters of disapproval in the auditorium as to the irrelevance of discussing Tracy Brabin wearing an off-the-shoulder dress, but it’s a bullshit defence as the producers of Question Time will have screened the questions which are going to be asked by audience members thus are editorially selective about what topics get debated etc.

Yes journalists being banned from Downing Street briefings was debated on last night’s edition of BBC Question Time, but it felt something of an afterthought as it was the last topic to be debated, okay I’m a journalist so I’m naturally going to big up the importance of the Fourth Estate, but that’s a lot harder to do when so many journalists are mercenary scum without a shred of integrity who are only ever interested in publishing sensationalist & salacious bullshit about celebrity tittle-tattle which generally makes people think 100 journos wearing concrete boots at the bottom of the ocean would be a good start.

Julian Assange

There is a serious side to journalism, there are many journalists rotting in prison cells around the globe for simply doing their job in asking questions of those who govern over us, here in Britain Julian Assange is currently incarcerated in HMP Belmarsh & could eventually find himself be carted off to Gitmo or some CIA dark site for having exposed the nefarious activities of those who govern over us don’t want us to know about including shit like war crimes & election rigging. Yes Assange is somewhat of a dickhead but he’s of the journalistic fraternity & journalists should be defending him because I always thought it was the job of journalists to be exposing shit like war crimes & election rigging.

It’s New Year 2020 & As A Physically Disabled Trans Woman I’ve Never Been So Shit Scared About My Future As I’m Now

Though I had most awesome start to this new decade as in the first minutes of the 2020s I got engaged to my girlfriend & we both now dream of having a fabulous wedding sometime in the next few years, however this is all very much dependent on whether this Tory government doesn’t murder me for the crime of being a disabled person.

Despite there being wedding bells in the air for yours truly, I’ve never been as scared for my future as I’m this New Year 2020, yes I might have survived the 2010s as a disabled person who increasingly needs government assistance to help me with the day to day tasks which able bodied people take for granted when over many other disabled people perished as a consequence of Tory austerity, but I can’t help thinking its really only a matter of time before I’m shipped off to an Atos death camp & become yet another statistic in the Tory genocide against disabled people.

The Tories continuing policy when it comes to caring for disabled people

Genocide & death camps might sound well too emotive & hyperbolic for some, but hey your likely not a severely disabled person thus have no fucking idea what so fucking ever what it’s fucking feels like to be a disabled person living under the threat which Tory government poses to us merely breathing never mind living or thriving. Let me remind you without truly having a parliamentary majority the Tories have managed kill over 100,000 disabled people over the past decade & gave a knighthood to the evil Tory cunt who was main architect of that genocidal level of death, now the Tories have a thumping parliamentary majority I dread to think what economic terrorism the Tories are now going to get away with unleashing on disabled people particularly when there are Tory backbenchers like Sally-Ann Hart Hastings & Rye who thinks disabled people are inferior human beings.

I dread to think what economic terrorism the Tories will unleash when Brexit kicks in! Oh fucking dear (& then some) if your some fuckwit gammon who’s thinking Brexit will somehow produce some kind of British renaissance & the 2020s will be the roaring 2020s, because you truly are a fucking fuckwitted fool who knows nothing about fucking economics. This country is going to be far poorer as a consequence of Brexit & shit is going to be a lot more expensive, which is going hurt most off all the most vulnerable in society such as disabled people, but hey bollocks to us disabled people so long as gammon get to wrap themselves up in Union Jacks & bash Johnny Foreigner.

There are conflicting reports as to whether former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson & leader of Britain First Paul Golding have had there applications to join the Tory Party turned down, but the fact the fascist hatemongering gammon are joining the Tories in droves led by the likes of Tommy Robinson & Paul Golding & Katie Hopkins is shit fucking scary, in fact what’s more scary is that Boris Johnson nor any other senior Tory has discouraged out & out fascist thugs from joining the Tories nor condemning fascist thug like Paul Golding making threats of violence against those who legitimately oppose this Tory government.

Boris’s hardon for Brexit, Boris’s racist & Islamophobic & homophobic &  misogynistic rhetoric, Boris evidently being Britain’s pound shop version of Donald Trump, geez wonder why far-right hatemongering trolls are attracted to supporting the Tories, fuck it why not cut out the bullshit & have the Tories drop the oak tree as their party logo & replace it with the swastika because hey it’s obviously the direction the Tories are currently traveling.

I’m not just shitting myself about the Tories economic policy affecting me due to being a disabled person, I’m shitting myself about the Tories social policies affecting me as a trans woman, for whatever reason trans people are still the most persecuted section of the LGBTQ community & considering we now have hatemongering gobshites trolls like Katie Hopkins joining the Tories who is the most rabid of rabid transphobic bigots & that we know there are transphobic bigots on the Tory parliamentary benches such as David T.C Davies, yeah it doesn’t quite look as if it will be the roaring 2020s if you’re trans or non-binary. I’m not saying that lesbian & gays won’t be immune from any Tory anti-LGBTQ bullshit, but apart from the odd fringe voice spouting homophobic bigotry the vast majority of Tories now generally accept gay & lesbian equality, it’s trans & particularly non-binary people who’ll be targeted by any Tory anti-LGBTQ bullshit. Despite us seeing a lot positive progress for trans people throughout the 2010s, maybe due to first half of the decade Britain having a Tory Prime Minister for all his faults was in fact socially liberal, but those days are long gone & the transphobic backlash is well underway, it’s now a question how much that will this will influence this Tory government when it comes to policy.

Remember Donald Trump posing with the LGBTQ Pride flag at a rally during the 2016 presidential election campaign, remember Boris going out of his way to mention LGBTQ when he first entered Downing Street as Prime Minister, golly hasn’t the Trump administration been mightily progressive & enlightened in it’s policies concerning the LGBTQ community & specifically trans people err NOT! Remember it was a Tory government which brought in Section 28 which deliberately discriminated against gays & lesbians, well there are now transphobic bigots proposing a similar discriminatory policy in regards to trans people.

I might not be so hopeful the 2020s will be so roaring for me personally or friends around me, in fact I sadly think the 2020s might be the last decade I get to draw breathe due to Tory this & Tory that, but I guarantee I will continue to fight & campaign against Tory evilness the best I can & I will never ever go fucking quietly.

What A Fucking Dismal Decade For Those Of Us On The Political Left

So it’s the last few days, of the last month, of the last year, of this decade without a name, a time when people will reflect upon their favourite films or favourite TV series or favourite videogames of the past decade, Snowpiercer was my favourite film of the decade, my favourite videogame was Cities Skylines, as for my favourite TV series well I hate to be unoriginal as it’s likely the same as anybody else’s which of course is Game Of Thrones, but hey I’m not known for being a pop culture commentator or critic, I’m known as an uber sweary political commentator, so enough with bollocking on about how frigging awesome Snowpiercer & Game Of Thrones were & lets reflect in around about meandering style how dismal this decade has been for anybody who’s politically to the left.   

Your truly with Alys the love of my life

Though my conclusion is it’s been a dismal decade for those of us on the left of politics, for me personally it’s actually been better than an okay decade, the two major highlights for me personally were successfully coming out as trans in 2010 & then meeting the love of my life Alys (aka Kim Justice) in 2017. There have definitely been more positive than negative highlights for me personally this past decade, from giving up smoking in 2011, to finally managing to move into a decent home in 2016, to surviving a heart attack in 2018 (yes surviving a heart attack is a positive), there was also going to the Houses of Parliament for the first time in 2013 to lobby MPs on the issue of trans rights & subsequently doing so several times, then there was finally getting to talk to my trans hero Caroline Cossey though it’s a shame she turned out to be an utter truscum bigoted cunt well they do say don’t they that you should never meet your heroes they’ll only ever disappoint you.

This has certainly been the decade when trans people became far more prevalent in the public eye, yeah this isn’t just the decade where I came out as trans but just about the entirety of the trans community has seemed to have come out from hiding rejoicing in trans being far more about liberation then it being a stigma. Sure as a consequence of trans people having been far more prevalent in the public eye & thus there being far more interest from the mainstream media in trans people, it’s given rise to the cult of the professional tranny celebrity which I don’t think is helpful in the long term for trans people, however I do acknowledge that trans people appearing in the mainstream media has helped push justice & equality for trans people further up the political agenda which is no bad thing. Yes with trans rights becoming far more of a hot topic politically it’s created a transphobic backlash this however was always going to be inevitable as it’s happened previously when the issue of justice & equality have come to the forefront of the political zeitgeist in regards to other sections of society, but when looking back overall at the past decade regards to the plight of trans people I do think its been mostly positive & one of the few things non transphobic progressive lefties can smile about.

Richard Garner a friend who I lost near the beginning of this decade but still miss

For me personally & for me as a trans woman yes this decade has been generally positive, however it’s not as if I didn’t lose people close to me along the way, in particularly I think of my friend Richard Garner who died of a drugs overdose in 2011, after all these years I still find myself in floods of tears thinking about Rick, yes our politics were different he a libertarian-anarchist & me a socialist but we often found common ground politically whether it was opposition to the war in Iraq or legalizing pot, he was also a massive supporter of the LGBTQ community & supported me when I came out as trans when many others round me didn’t, but what I miss most of all about Richard was he was just as Punk Rock as me liking all the same movies & music & definitely having the same fuck you attitude. The death of trans activist Lily Summers in 2016 is another bereavement I find myself getting moist eyes about, me & Lily were on different sides of the Labour Party but a great deal of what she warned about in regards Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party has come true. I was recently reminded of a photo of me taken in a pub on New Year’s Eve 1999 along with 5 other drinking buddies, 20 years later I’m now the only one still alive, let us just say the deaths of those 5 chums weren’t due to natural causes, I don’t know sometimes I think I suffer from survivors guilt because I do often think how comes I’m still alive despite all the hard liquor I’ve drunk & all the illicit substances I’ve ingested.

Lemmy the world is duller place without him

This of course was the decade we lost Lemmy, he truly was the last of the troubadours who didn’t give a fuck, he just lived sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll to the fucking max. Lemmy was the very embodiment of sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll, definitely one of my ultimate rock & roll heroes & this world is a far duller place without him. Politically this was the decade we lost Charles Kennedy who I ironically once met in a bar sometime around 1998, he was a thoroughly decent man & in my opinion the last great leader of the Liberal Democrats, I remember back in 2003 he took a principled stance as Lib Dem leader in opposing Tony Blair’s ordering the involvement of the British military in the illegal invasion of Iraq, no other leader of a major parliamentary party did so & there were other prominent members of the Lib Dems such as former party leader Paddy Ashdown (who died last year) who supported the invasion of Iraq, so it was a brave stance he took & the right stance he took, he spoke for me & millions of people in opposition to Blair disgracing this country with the military misadventure in Iraq, Charles Kennedy might no longer be with us but I still applaud him for the stance he took.

I remember Lemmy died right at the end of 2015 & considering what a rock icon he was his death seems to have been a precursor to 2016 the year of the celebrity death what with the passing of David Bowie, Prince & George Michael etc. When historians look back upon this decade, 2016 will be seen as the pivotal year of this decade & not because it was the year Alan Rickman & Carrie Fisher died, but because it was the year of Brexit & Trump.

Back in 2009 I wrote an article for a news site which no longer exists, in which I essentially predicted the rise of the far-right during this decade, well both Brexit & Trump were a consequence of the rise of the far-right with all the hate & intolerance which comes with the far-right. You telling me that Brexit & Trump weren’t motivated by racism, Jesus fucking Christ don’t you recall the rhetoric which plumbed the depths of racist intolerance during both the EU referendum & the Trump presidential campaign?!?! Actually the truth as to what caused both Brexit & the election of Trump is the lack of investment by successive governments (including left of centre governments) in communities which had already spiralled ever downwards into being shitholes, people being constantly fucked in being denied any decent opportunity of bettering themselves & in waltzes the narcissistic egomaniac likes of Donald Trump & Nigel Farage telling the ill-educated poor & desperate living in those communities that its immigrants or people merely being different to them who are to blame for them being constantly fucked!

Brexit & Trump were a product of far-right opportunism, but that opportunism was given to them by the failure of the left, oh it’s definitely not been a good decade for political left that’s both the radical & mainstream left. Wonder whatever happened to the Occupy Movement, oh yeah they went the same way which Extinction Rebellion will be going, as in into historical obscurity having accomplished fuck all, I’m not saying street protests never accomplish anything because the Poll Taxes riots (& yes I was there) of nearly 30yrs ago were the beginning of the end for Margret Thatcher, but ultimately it will always be electoral politics which effects real change & how the mainstream left has failed spectacularly on that score this decade. Labour have lost 4 General Elections in a row this decade, sure the 2010 defeat was deserved as whole Blairite project had run its course & people wanted a change, the 2015 defeat well all Ed Miliband as Labour leader was offering was regurgitated Blairite shite which amounted to Tory lite & people just thought fuck it why not just have full fat Tory, some might want to somehow spin the 2017 defeat as some kind of victory yeah sure Labour did better then any pundit was expecting but it didn’t prevent the Tories in continuing to kill thousands more disabled people did it, as for the 2019 oh fuck we are all still reeling from that one being its one of the worse General Election defeats for Labour despite the Tories having been government for practically a decade.

Me with Jeremy Corbyn back in 2015

It seems a lifetime ago when upon that second Saturday in September of 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader by a landslide & all us redder then red socialists got drunk as fuck thinking here starts the revolution, but here we less than 5yrs later & well the revolution is down the fucking shitter & on the brink of entering the 2020s I’ve never been as scared as I’m right now about my future as a consequence of being a disabled people. It’s disabled people who Labour have ultimately failed, I’m not saying disabled people should from now on never vote Labour again because of course they should continue voting Labour, what I’m saying is that Labour have failed disabled by not winning elections & thus not being in government & so not putting an end to the Tory genocide against disabled people.

The Official Tory policy when it comes to caring for the disabled

The most dismal thing of this dismal decade has been the scale of the Tory genocide against disabled people, yes I knew when the Tories were elected to government in 2010 they were going to make disabled people pay for the reckless behaviour of their banker chums which the decade previous had caused a global financial crisis. But I never thought it would result in the murder of a 100,000 plus disabled people nor the architect of the government program which has resulted in genocidal levels of disabled people being killed would be receiving a fucking knighthood in the 2020 New Year Honours!

I actually hate writing this kind of ‘year in review’ or ‘decade in review’ type article, not because often end up to be lengthy pieces, but there’s always stuff you forget to mention no matter how many notes you make. Dale Farm, the war in Libya, the riots across Britain in the summer of 2011, Chelsea Manning & Julian Assange, all important stuff which hasn’t gotten mentioned in depth with this review, I guess to sum up this review of the past decade would be to describe it as the stuff which had the biggest impact on me or just that I can’t write about everyfuckingthing which has happened this decade.

Why Not Give Hitler & Pol Pot Knighthoods If You Going To Give One To Iain Duncan Smith

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.

‘Sir’ Iain Duncan Shit because we now award knighthoods to people who commit genocide

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.

The Nasty Party Is Back In Town

The Nasty Party is back in town as parliament is in session today for the first time since the General Election last Thursday, yes I’m sure those newly elected MPs representing northern constituencies such as Darlington & Workington & Wakefield will no doubt pledge their full support to the Tory government as it sets about fucking up the north even further then the Tories have already fucked up the north.

Boris posing with the new influx of Tory scumbag MPs

Amongst the influx of newly elected Tory MPs there might be Imran Ahmad-Khan the MP for Wakefield who’s the first openly gay Muslim to be elected to any national parliament which definitely shows progress when it comes trumpeting diversity, but then there’s Sally-Ann Hart MP for Hastings & Rye who thinks Muslims are conspiring to make people transgender. I can definitely testify that Allah nor any other mystic sky daddy had anything to do with me being trans but this is beside the point which is both Imran Ahmad-Khan & Sally-Ann Hart will no doubt be happy to support Boris whenever Boris wants to give his billionaire chums a further tax cut at the expense of killing tens of thousands more disabled people, because all Tories are fucking evil cunts.

There was some Tory whining on today’s of edition BBC Politics Live that people don’t associate the Tories with being humane & compassionate, I also recall The Times columnist Daniel Finkelstein whilst on some panel at the last Tory Party conference saying many people on the left often painted many Tories as Dickensian uncaring caricatures, maybe over 100,000 disabled people having been killed as a consequence of Tory austerity has a lot to do with people thinking the Tories are something a kin to an inhumane & uncompassionate Dickensian caricature, yeah I don’t see any Tories rushing to the rescue of any disabled person having been fucked by Universal Credit or a PIP assessment more likely you have the Tory likes of Edwina Currie & Katie Hopkins putting the boot in & twisting the knife.

Remember when a few months ago Boris Johnson was making an address at a police training college & one of the cadets standing behind him fainted or was taken ill & he showed fuck all concern for their wellbeing, well this sums up perfectly how uncompassionate Tories are for me & I’ve had a great deal of how uncompassionate Tories can be from a very early age. My family are uber conservative as well as being fucking loaded, but despite being loaded & believers in all that small government/low taxes guff Tories have been known to bleat on about, they had me put into care because spastic me didn’t go with the wallpaper in their effort to keep up with the Joneses, yet they bitched at me for having been in receipt welfare! I’ve known plenty of Tories to have complained about disabled people not having been harassed enough to seek paid employment & yet they’d likely bitch if disabled people were given the support of professional carers which would enable them to seek gainful employment, it’s this utter hypocrisy of the Tory mindset which drives me fucking nuts! Oh but of course Tories think all disabled people are either milking their disabilities or literally faking being disabled altogether, if not they’ll then bang on about how they believe in the ‘voluntary sector’, oh Christ we are back to David Cameron & the ‘Big Society’, yeah I thought we gotten past proving that to just be yet another hollow bullshit soundbite I mean I’ve not had any Tory voter ‘volunteer’ to help me do shit I can’t do for myself.

There are many more people this Christmas who won’t in fact be having much of a Christmas purely due the policies of the Tories, bet hey Boris getting Brexit done will bring a great deal of comfort NOT! Whether it’s been the deindustrialisation of Northern England, to care in the community, Tory austerity & Universal Credit, time & time again the Tories have proven themselves to be utter evil cunts.

Thanks To Fascistic Trump I’m Now Immobile For Christmas

I recently received this bullshit disabilist tweet from somebody who’s quite obviously a Tory troll.

Yes of course I must be lying my fucking arse off about being disabled because I’m not dribbling whilst sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time unable to comprehend the world. I can most definitely testify from personal experience as disabled person that the disablist attitude exhibited by this Tory troll is sadly pretty prevalent amongst the general populous, people really do seem to think that unless you’re not visibly sat in a wheelchair 100% of the time then your bullshitting the world about being disabled. What’s particularly irksome isn’t just that many people can’t grasp not all disabilities are visible & that those disabilities which are invisible are often the most debilitating of disabilities, it’s the contradictory bullshit of accusing disabled people of using whatever disabilities they suffer from as an excuse in not making enough effort to do whatever but then accusing disabled people of lying about being disabled when they do make an effort to do whatever, in other words when I do make effort to get out & about to do whatever despite being disabled I’m accused of lying about being disabled yet if I didn’t make an effort to get out & about to do whatever because of being disabled I’m then accused of using my disabilities as an excuse to be lazy, seems to me cynicism has replaced compassion regards the general attitude of people in this country towards disabled people.

For the record I suffer from multiple disabilities (not all of which are visible) including physical disabilities effecting my mobility, for the record whenever I have attended any protest or parade in London I’ve more often then not been laid up unable to walk for more then day afterwards, but it’s not just the next few days I’m going to be laid up unable to walk as a consequence of having attended yesterday’s Anti-Trump demo in London but I’m going to be immobile for the entirety of Christmas due to having tripped & fallen & in process knackering my right knee as well as spraining my left ankle.

yours truly at yesterday’s Anti Trump demo prior to busting my knee

When I tripped & fell as the anti-Trump demo was setting off from Trafalgar Square to march on Buckingham Palace where Queen Lizzy was hosting a reception for Donald Trump & other NATO leaders, it wasn’t the pain from having tripped & fallen in the manner I did that had me in floods of tears, but the police & stewards who’d gathered round me to see if I was okay misgendering me as ‘he’, which was kind of frigging ironic as I was attending this Anti-Trump demo to represent trans people as Indeed I have when I’ve attended all the other Anti-Trump demos I’ve managed to attend over the past couple of years.

With yesterday’s Anti Trump demo there were activists giving speeches about all usual leftwing concerns you’d expect activists to be making speeches about at an Anti-Trump demonstration, justice for Palestinians, fuck off NATO, Trump is a racist & Islamophobe & a misogynist, all which being a redder then red socialist I of course agree with, but there wasn’t one LGBTQ activist or more specifically trans activist speaking from the platform yesterday thus no mention of Trump’s rabid transphobia despite it being more then fucking evident that from the moment he took office his administration has been waging a war against trans people. Though Paris Lees did get to speak at a previous Anti-Trump demo back in the summer of 2018 which was attended by 300,000 people (me included) usually there’s been an absence of trans or even LGBTQ speakers at the Anti-Trump demos there have been & generally when it comes to antifascist demonstrations. Don’t the Stop The War Coalition or Unite Against Fascism or the Socialist Workers Party or whichever leftwing activist group who’ve been organising Anti-Trump & antifascist demos not know Trump is being a colossal cunt towards trans people, do they not think the rise is the far-right isn’t an increasing threat to LGBTQ people & specifically trans people?

It’s because of the lack of LGBTQ representation & specifically the lack of trans representation there has been from platform at Anti-Trump & antifascist protests which is exactly the reason why I attend these kind of protests waving a Trans Pride flag like a motherfucker & why there needs to be far more trans visibility amongst the demonstrators at these sort of protests as a reminder trans people are very much threatened by the rise of the far-right in fact more so then any other section of the LGBTQ community. Some might pooh-pooh my personal efforts to increase trans visibility in the fight against fascism making bollock all difference, however to my surprise a trans friend who ‘s a working-class Tory actually applauded me for my efforts in trying to increase trans visibility when it comes to demonstrating against Trump. It’s certainly not a good thing to have busted my knee thanks to Donald Trump being a fascist fuck, but having a Tory of all people appreciate me for the effort I’ve made in trying raise trans visibility when it comes to protesting Trump well that actually means a great deal to me & goes a long way to making up for the physical agony I’m having to endure this festive season.

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.

Enter Boris & Now It’s Off We Go To War With Iran & Brexit Disaster Land

So on Monday Jo Swinson was elected leader of the Liberal Dem…..oh sorry wrong party & wrong leadership contest, I’m kind of out of practice having had to take a few days off from writing to deal with some personal stuff, however the votes of the Liberal Democrat MPs do in fact have some importance as we currently have a hung parliament & soon enough after the summer recess there’s going to be more parliamentary Brexit bullshit.

Despite having had to take some personal time from ranting like frothing at the mouth militant socialist motherfucker, It’s kind of impossible with wall-to-fucking-wall news coverage not to be aware Boris Johnson was yesterday elected Tory Party leader & just this afternoon after visiting Queen Lizzy at the palace is now the UK’s Prime Minister, I’m also aware we a fucked! With Prime Minister Boris Johnson we as a nation are completely & utterly motherfucking fuck!

Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Donald Trump described Boris Johnson as Britain Trump, I think President Bozo Racist The Pussy Grabber was meant to say Boris was Britain’s Trump or the British Trump, but anyways will Donald be holding hands when he & Boris are walking together as he did with Theresa May, fuck it why not as it’s obvious to me those two have some kind of bromance going on, hey why don’t the two of them get a sleazy motel room together to further explore their bromance & they can have Nigel Farage join them for a threesome.

In all seriousness one should actually be extremely fearful of the close relationship between Boris & Donald, considering Trump having since surrounded himself with warmongering scumbag ‘neo-con’ advisers like John Bolton tensions with the Iranian regime have weirdly escalated & you can’t help thinking its only a matter of time until its 1-2-3-4 off to war with Iran, which might mean Britain might get dragged into another Middle Eastern exertion to fatten the profits of the Military Industrial Complex if Boris is going to play Mini-Me to Donald Trump.

If Donald Trump meant when he said ‘Trump Britain’ that Boris Johnson was going to lurch crazily to the hard-right/far-right as he is in the way he governs, yeah I’m scared as fuck this will be the case which definitely ain’t good if you’re disabled, poor, female or LGBTQ. Like Trump, Boris has a history of making racist & homophobic comments & propagating fake news as well as not being bothered with detail when detail fucking matters, oh sure Boris made mention of supporting LGBTQ people in his first speech as Prime Minister outside No10, yeah well Trump was pictured holding the LGBTQ Pride flag when as a Presidential candidate whilst as president his administration has been rolling back the few federal protections there were preventing discrimination against LGBTQ people. The Tories have for the past decade been pursuing genocidal policies against people with disabilities, I expect no different from the Tory government led by Boris Johnson, in fact I expect Boris’s government to ratchet up the killing disabled people, an ominous sign is disabled people were the first to be gassed by the nazis, but killing disabled people isn’t the only ominous sign of Boris Johnson’s nazi or fascist tendencies.

Philip Hammond, Rory Stewart, Alan Duncan & several other Tories who oppose a No-Deal-Brexit have resigned from their cabinet positions as a No-Deal-Brexit is clearly Boris intentions, all of which means Boris’s first cabinet as Prime Minister will no doubt be chock full with Tory ministers with a massive fucking hardon for a No-Deal-Brexit, Boris did reiterated his determination for the UK to leave the European Union on October 31st in his first speech as Prime Minister outside No10 & as a new Brexit deal with the EU can’t logistically be negotiated with the EU by October, it appears we are heading to No-Deal-Brexit disaster land & Boris doesn’t mind acting like fucking fascist despot to force Brexit disaster land to happen. If Boris follows through on his threat to prorogue parliament to forcing a No-Deal-Brexit he’ll be acting very much in the manner of a fascist despot, because when executive branch of government suspends the legislative branch when the legislative doesn’t give the executive what it wants that folks is what fascist despots do.

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.
