What Did We Learn From The Second Televised Tory Leadership Election Debate?

Yet another major BBC documentary series on Margret Thatcher’s premiership has just concluded airing last night & tonight we had a the second televised debate between the remaining 5 Tory leadership candidates which was aired on primetime BBC1, hmm don’t remember when the BBC last produced a major documentary series about any Labour government nor do I remember during the 2015 Labour leadership election there being a televised debate between the candidates being aired on primetime BBC1, fucking Tory bias, Tory bias, Tory bias at the BBC that’s the first thing we learnt about the second televised Tory leadership election debate!

We learnt that Emily Maitlis can’t moderate a debate between Tory leadership candidates for damn sure, on three separate occasions (by my count) during the hour-long debate the 5 remaining Tory leadership candidates erupted into literally shouting across one another so no viewer could make out what the fuck they were saying. The one thing I will commend the BBC on, is there was a better mixture of questions posed to the Tory leadership election candidates then the previous televised debate which aired on Channel 4, yes there was a great deal said on the issue of Brexit but it didn’t dominate this debate as much as I thought it might.

There are now 5 leadership candidates after Dominic Raab didn’t make the votes required to proceed to tomorrow’s third round of voting amongst the Tory parliamentary party, I’m relieved that antifeminist & transphobic Dominic Raab is out of the running as if he had a sniff of being the next PM he would have been a fascistic despot in the making with his proposal to suspend parliament to ensure Brexit happens by the October 31st deadline, unfortunately Boris Johnson has pretty much proposed doing the same thing & he’s still very much the frontrunner when it comes to this Tory leadership election. Yes Boris actually bothered to turn up to this televised Tory leadership debate having skipped the previous longer debate which aired on Channel 4 this Sunday evening just gone, so he ducks out of debating other Tory leadership candidates in front of television studio audience & he expects to negotiate UK’s exit from the EU with other European leaders who’ll be playing hardball.

Maybe people around the same age as me or older will remember the ’83 Election when Margret Thatcher did a Q&A with voters via a video link & there was a lady who asked hard questions of Thatcher about the sinking of the Belgrano during Falklands War, the clip of which I sadly can’t find on YouTube despite it being one of those election great election campaign moments, well anyways the tonight’s televised Tory leadership election debate was a similar format but of course much updated. The one thing which was pretty noticeable from all those voters from around the country who got to ask questions via video link to the Tory leadership election candidates was none seemed at all fucking impressed with the answers they got that’s if you can actually say they were by any means actual answers.

All the candidates talked pie in the fucking sky about resolving the problem with the Northern Irish border which Brexit & particularly a No-Deal-Brexit would cause thus running the real risk of a return of IRA terrorism, Nigel Farage might not give a shit about resurrecting The Troubles in Northern Ireland & possibly the IRA launching a bombing campaign on the British mainland, but I fucking do!. Noticeable that all of the 5 candidates dodged points which were directly made by Emily Maitlis about the fact there had been a flood of questions from viewers concerning the debacle rollout of Universal Credit which is the Tory government’s latest welfare reform scheme which is not just making the most vulnerable in society even poorer then they already were, it’s leaving people starving & destitute & fuck knows how many deaths it’s already killed as result or how many more it will kill. It was noticeable that all Tory leadership election candidates were shitting themselves about any likelihood of a General Election when a question did come via video link from a member of electorate about any these Tory scumbags actually having a credible mandate to govern if elected Prime Minister & not just the 150,000 grassroots membership of the Tories. Wonder why any of Tory leadership candidates seeking to be the next Prime Minister wouldn’t be keen in calling a General Election to get an actual mandate from the British electorate to govern, oh yeah because there’d fucking lose & they know it.

One should be very fucking fearful of the Tory party grassroots, as YouGov carried out polling amongst the Tory grassroots & found a majority is prepared to trash the British economy if it meant there’d be Brexit, the only thing  a majority said they’d be prepared to sacrifice Brexit for is the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn led Labour government being elected to government. Michael Gove did make some pretty outrageous smears against Jeremy Corbyn during the BBC debate which went unchallenged, there was the usual bullshit that ‘Corbyn is a Marxist’ as if Gove or any Tory has actually ever read Das Kapital & has any understanding of Marxian economics, oh then there was the usual ‘Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic’ bullshit to which this Jew says yawn & please can you change the fucking record as this really has become tedious as fucking fuck because as somebody who is Jewish I can testify Corbyn is no antisemite. Oh & now there’s the new bullshit smear that Jeremy Corbyn cares more about serving the interests of the Iranian regime then the interests of British working classes, fuck you Gove we know you’re a self-identified Zionist thus likely yet another voice of Israeli government paranoia, at least Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t want to march young men off to a war which wouldn’t serve the interests of Iranian people just the interests of the Military Industrial Complex!

Fucking hilarious (& not in a good way) Michael Gove claiming during tonight’s BBC Tory leadership election debate that he was most anti-poverty candidate, oh laugh my fucking arse off because he also said he’d not reverse the Tories spending cuts, hey I’m no mathematical genius but even I know poverty reduction will take an enormous amount of investment which would mean having to increase government spending. Rory Stewart hinted if he was elected Prime Minister then he might be prepared to increase government spending when it comes to public services, but just as I was possibly warming to him, he said if elected PM he would more then likely not confront Donald Trump’s Islamophobic abuse against the likes of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, not exactly comforting for Sajid Javid to hear this kind of bollocks being a fellow Tory leadership candidate & a Muslim, Jeremy Hunt of course denied he supported Donald Trump’s Islamophobic abuse of Sadiq Khan, sounded as if Jeremy you did mate but we already know you’re a c…!

Well it was nice of Boris to grace tonight’s televised Tory leadership election debate being as he’s a candidate in this Tory leadership election it’s very least he could of done ha fucking ha, as for the substance of what he had to say, well there was a question about reducing the tax burden on the working classes yeah as if Boris the toff knows anything about the burdens, struggle & strife of the working classes. Remember when Boris said he’d lay in front of bulldozers if the planned expansion of Heathrow Airport went ahead, well surprise fucking surprised he sounds as if he’s changed his tune on that one. He did apologise for racist statements he’s made in the past, but I believe him not, he’ll be back making racist statements & writing racist articles come next week or next month as he just can’t help himself. He said on Brexit he wants there to be a deal with the EU, I say bullshit as all the noises he’s made so far on the issue sound as he’s firmly in the No-Deal-Brexit camp, plus he doesn’t want to let down his fellow Tory toff Jacob Rees Mogg whose hedge fund will make a financial killing from a No-Deal-Brexit by betting against the pound.

I’m pretty sure Boris Johnson will be one of the two candidates who go ahead to face the entire Tory party electorate, but who will join him is the question, well I seriously doubt it will be Sajid Javid, though prior to tonight’s televised Tory leadership debate the momentum seemed to be with Rory Stewart who dramatically increased the number of MPs backing him however I don’t think Rory had nearly as good a debate as he did on Sunday, what I can say for certain is Boris will face off in the final run off will be another middle aged, heteronormative, White male, who was privately education, how fucking typically Tory.  

What Did We Learn From The First Televised Tory Leadership Debate?

So earlier this evening Channel 4 aired the first televised debate amongst all but one of the remaining candidates participating in the Tory leadership election & it was Jeremy Hunt who asked the most apt question of the entire debate that being where was Boris? Yes apparently Boris Johnson is too much of a complacent & arrogant fuck to debate the other Tory leadership candidates in the first televised debate, Boris might think he’s so far in front not to have any need to debate the other Tory leadership candidates in front of an audience wider then just Tory Party activists, but he should be reminded not to be so complacent & arrogant as candidates who looked as if they were odds on favourites with bookies & political pundits to be elected Tory leader in previous Tory leadership elections have pretty much never won in any of those Tory leadership elections. Supposedly Boris will be participating in the next televised Tory leadership debate which presumably will be amongst the remaining candidates after Tuesday’s next round of voting held earlier that day & this next televised debate is being aired on primetime BBC1, hmm funny don’t remember the last time there was Labour leadership election there being a debate between the leadership candidates being aired on primetime BBC1, #torybias, #torybias, #torybias.

So since the last time I wrote about the Tory leadership contest all of 3 days ago, Matt Hancock has pulled out of the leadership election despite having not been at the bottom of the pack of those who made the cut to proceed to the second round of voting, I guess with Matt Hancock it’s been a case of Matt who?!?! Jeremy Hunt has been getting in a strop with the media for correctly identifying him as Jeremy Cunt, this follows Victoria Derbyshire on her morning BBC2 magazine show joining a long list of distinguished broadcasters correctly identifying Jeremy for what he is. Oh & there’s been the revelation that Boris Johnson whilst as London Mayor insulted the families of those who died as a consequence the 7/7 terrorist attacks upon the capital, when in a furious outburst after being briefed on the expense of inquests into the 52 people who died on that horrendous day back in July of 2005, he’s claimed to have said “Fuck the families! Fuck the families!”, hey surprised not am I if true, as it’s pretty fucking typical Tory to put penny-pinching ahead of justice being done & to be insensitive about doing so

So despite the absence of Boris at tonight’s televised Tory leadership election debate, what did we learn from tonight’s televised debate? Well it was obvious for all to see that with the exception of Sajid Javid, all the other candidates were privately educated privileged bland heteronormative middle-aged White males, so pretty stereotypical of your what a Tory scumbag wanker politician has always pretty much been. Of course Sajid Javid being Muslim wasn’t the reason he was the only member of the cabinet not to have been asked to meet Donald Trump, when Trump was on his recent UK jolly being glad-handed by Queen Lizzy & co, because to say Javid didn’t get to shake hands with Trump because he’s a Muslim would imply Trump is Islamophobic & the British government were complicit with that Islamophobia, nah that can’t be true, I mean hasn’t Donald Trump been ever so complementary about London Mayor Sadiq Khan over the past few days.

Jeremy Hunt kept on bragging throughout tonight’s televised Tory leadership debate that he’s been a successful entrepreneur, me thinks Hunt other then being an utter cunt, has mistaken the Tory leadership debate for fucking Dragons Den, yeah I think Hunt would be a good replacement for Peter Jones as they’re equally jumped up fucking yuppie fucks who think we should worship them because they’ve got wads of cash.

We found out tonight that Michael Gove is detached from reality or he’s been snorting way too many powdery white lines of his favourite Bolivian crop, actually it probably is he’s been snorting way too much Bolivian marching dust because Michael Gove seems to think he’s somehow special, which in fact can be a consequence of taking heaps of cocaine. Michael seemed to think if he were Prime Minister then EU negotiators would fall at his feet in giving him the Brexit deal he wants, despite the very obvious fact that EU aren’t oblige to do so & won’t do so & I don’t fucking blame them for not doing so.

Of all the candidates it was Antifeminist & transphobic Dominic Raab who ranks alongside Boris as the candidate who is the most dangerous threat to British parliamentary democracy in a very real fascistic despotism kind of manner, as both are saying if they’re elected Prime Minister they’d be prepared to suspend parliament as a means of forcing a No Deal Brexit happening come the October 31st deadline, suspending parliaments when the executive branch of government can’t get it’s own way is the kind of thing fascist dictators do, these are indeed extremely worrying times if either Boris Johnson or Dominic Raab get elected Prime Minister.

Okay as far as I’m concerned all the remaining Tory leadership candidates are all first class cunts as well as those who have already dropped out of the race, but Rory Stewart is the least cuntish of the remaining Tory candidates, in fact the way he was bollocking on about recapturing the centre ground of British politics I was wondering if he’s not in fact a closeted Liberal Democrat, but what the fuck is this nutty bullshit about a ‘citizens assembly’ to find a resolution to Brexit he keeps waffling on about? Essentially Rory is proposing picking several thousand people at random from the electoral role to have some grand assembly to find a solution to Brexit if the parliamentary deadlock can’t be resolved, apart the logistics of organising such a grand assembly, has it occurred to Rory that its likely many of those who would be chosen for this grand ‘citizens assembly’ could very well be subjected to harassment & intimidation by far-right thugs & unlike many a politician they won’t have police protection or be able to afford hiring bodyguards. For fucks sake Rory forget this mass phone-a-friend bullshit & just come out in support of a second referendum, you know you want to mate.

No surprise the majority of Channel 4’s Tory leadership debate was taken up with Brexit, Brexit, fucking Brexit, but I was surprised about the amount of times Climate-Change was mentioned, I guess I should be thankful that generally mainstream conservatives in this country believe Climate-Change is for real, but though Tories might talk about doing etc to combat Climate-Change that’s just it they merely talk about doing etc, the Tories record in government when it comes to averting the pending climate & environmental catastrophe is fucking woeful!

Tory Scumbags & Slimeballs Now To Outcompete Each Other To Be Anti LGBTQ

I’ve decided that not all Tory leadership candidates are scumbags, some such as Michael Gove & Jeremy Hunt are far more Slimeballs then scumbags, though of course I think all the Tory leadership contest are first class cu…

Mark Harper is the latest Tory MP to have put himself forward to be a candidate in the Tory leadership contest, to which my response is Mark Who? Despite the fact I think Iain Duncan Smith should be in prison for the tens of thousands of disabled people he killed when instituting ‘welfare reform’ whilst DWP Secretary, I agree with him that with there being so many candidates in the Tory leadership contest (& possibly more to come) it has become chaotic & farcical & something of a three-ring-circus, but unlike Iain Duncan Smith I’m quite happy to see the Tory leadership contest descend into being a chaotic farce.

Tory leadership candidates now trying to out do each other on who’s more anti LGBTQ

As for those candidates already involved in the Tory leadership contest, well they’ve moved on from who’s got the biggest hardon for Brexit to more worryingly for me as lesbian trans woman to who’s more anti LGBTQ, Esther McVey has said ‘parents know best’ on LGBT lessons & Dominic Raab has declared he’s not a feminist & opposes reforms for trans people, well Esther McVey is barking fucking mad & should be in jail sharing a cell with Iain Duncan Smith for the cruelty she inflicted on disabled people whilst a minister at the DWP, as for Dominic Raab well on last Sunday’s edition of the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show he said he was not in favour of economic or social rights which essentially is a polite euphemism for saying fuck the poor, fuck the disabled & yes fuck trans people & the wider LGBTQ community.

A fellow trans activist said to me the other day that I was out the loop when it came to the recent attacks on trans & LGBTQ equality as I seemed more interested in other stiff, it’s not as if I’m not interested in the attacks on trans & wider LGBTQ equality, in fact I care quite deeply about LGBTQ equality & the plight of LGBTQ people, but at the same time I equally care about the plight of disabled people & the persecution that’s been inflicted upon them by this Tory government, in fact I care about human rights period whether they be social or economic which is why the slim chance of Dominic Raab replacing Theresa May as Prime Minster fills me with dread. I’ve certainly been keeping somewhat in touch with the anti LGBTQ protests by religious fundamentalists at Birmingham schools, which of course is a reference to the story about Esther McVey has said ‘parents know best’ on LGBT lessons.

Hilariously the far-right despite being as homophobic & transphobic as any religious fundamentalist, have attempted to hijack the opposition to the anti LGBTQ protests at Birmingham schools for their own racist agenda, by for instance launching dogpile social-media attacks on Guardian columnist Owen Jones for not saying enough as a gay man in opposition to these protests when in fact if they bothered to check Owen was one of the first to voice opposition, obviously the reason the far-right object to these protests isn’t any love they have for LGBTQ people but hatred of Muslims who appear to the majority protesting there being LGBTQ education in Birmingham schools. Thing is objections & protests to there being LGBTQ education in schools has spread further afield then Birmingham & its not just Muslims who are objecting & protesting there being LGBTQ education in schools, I saw a report on the BBC’s London edition of Sunday Politics show last weekend where a Hasidic Jew was objecting to his children being made to attend LGBTQ education lessons & was threatening to pull his kids out of school & possibly leave the country over the issue, to which my response is go on then fuck off you homophobic bigot if that’s the way you feel, yes some would be right to say I’m intolerant to intolerance & proud to be so. I don’t care if you are a Jew, Christian or Muslim or you prey to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, you’re belief in a make belief sky daddy isn’t an excuse for bigotry & whatever is written in some stupid crusty old book you reckon is the word of your make belief sky daddy doesn’t trump secular law, Now before anybody says to me Britain isn’t technically a secular society because church & state are intertwined, I already know this which is why I support disestablishmentarianism otherwise known as the separation of church & state, but the point is generally in contemporary Britain we are pretty much a secular society which respects secular values, meaning with the odd exception (namely religious headbangers) that people generally respect the rights of LGBTQ people & that’s a good thing believe me.

Mystical sky daddies aren’t real but the lives of LGBTQ are very real, how would it be viewed if a bunch of White people started protesting schools teaching Non White history, me thinks it would be viewed as racism pure & simple, so it most definitely should be viewed as homophobic/transphobic for people protesting there being LGBTQ education in schools & homophobia/transphobia should rank equal to racism on any scale of bigotry there might be & there should be just as much of an outcry towards homophobia/transphobia as there is about racism.

As for the Tory scumbags involved with the Tory leadership contest having a pissing contest about who’s more homophobic & transphobic, well there is a bit of playing to the gallery going on, I mean there is plenty of homophobia & racism (particularly Islamophobia) amongst the Tory grassroots just as there is support for tax cuts which some Tory leadership candidates have been promising to implanted if elected to replace Theresa May knowing no way could they implement those tax cuts if they became Prime Minister with Brexit on the horizon, still it’s unpleasant & sad to see the Tories revert back to being somewhat anti LGBTQ when the one good thing David Cameron had done as Tory leader & Prime Minster was make the Tories far more progressive in supporting LGBTQ people.
