Rant #2 About BBC Question Time: Those People Who Definitely Should Be On The QT Panel

Fiona Bruce the current host of BBC Question Time

Another edition of BBC Question is due to air later this evening with it being your typical Thursday in darkest January no doubt with the typical QT panel of guests biased towards giving a Tory opinion & no doubt the typical rent-a-Daily-Mail-audience, but I’m sorry to inform racist gammon there’ll be no Nigel Farage on this edition of Question Time same as with last week’s edition of Question Time because yeah things aren’t as typical with QT as they were a few years back when Farage was on nearly every other fucking week, I guess he’s too busy to appear on Question Time what with organising his big Brexit celebration in parliament Square at the end of the month so racist Gammon can get drunk & be abusive about Muslims & immigrants which is in fact pretty much your typical day-in-a-life of your average gammon anyways.

You often hear people say the appeal of Nigel Farage is that he sounds like your average bloke down the pub, well then why bother with Nigel Farage & just drag some wanker out of the local Wetherspoons after he’s had 5 pints of wife beater & stick him on the Question Time panel. Why not have on the QT panel the barstool bigot slash armchair politician which there is in every pub across England who thinks he’s an expert on just about every hot-topic of our day despite his answer to just about everything is either to send all immigrants back to where they belong or to give women a slap so they know their place or to hang all parking attendants.

I’d personally love to see that guy who thinks all politics is bullshit on the Question Time panel, you know the guy despite being a grown adult still has the mentality of a stroppy teenager & pisses on all political activists for wanting campaign to change the world for better because they reckon politics is just bullshit & wank despite just about everything in this world being political to some degree, yeah like to see them face off on the QT panel with somebody who’s genuinely campaigning for something worthwhile such as decreasing homeless or improving the environment & see them be fucking humiliated & embarrassed as fuck because I’ve had my fucking fill of having to deal with spoilt apathetic brat cunt motherfuckers with adolescent mentalities.

I don’t ever recall there being a real deal anarchist on the BBC Question Time panel in all the years I’ve been watching the program, I know some people might point to John Lydon, however by Lydon’s own admission he was nothing more then a poser anarchist back in the days of the Sex Pistols it was merely a jux to position & these days he seems to have taken to supporting Donald Trump, When I talk of an anarchist being on the Question Time panel I’m thinking of anarchist intellectuals such as Noam Chomsky who I’ve got a great deal of respect for, though it would be fucking hilarious to have one of those self-described anarchist spotty herbert wanker anarchists you get on YouTube who’s endless habitual philosophical waffle never helps towards solving any pressing issues & would bore the socks off your grandparents to appear on the QT panel.

that time in 2009 when then BNP leader Nick Griffin appeared on Question Time

I’m often asked about whether I think Tommy Robinson should ever be asked to be a panellist on BBC Question Time? Some of my antifa activist comrades might be miffed in me saying I do think it would be appropriate for Tommy Robinson to be asked onto Question Time panel, but my justification is that as bigoted hatemongers go he’s on par with Katie Hopkins & she has been a QT panellist on at least one occasion which I can remember, I’d also point out that we didn’t hear a great deal from Nick Griffin after he was on the Question Time panel did we. Yes remember back in 2009 when Nick Griffin who was then leader of the far-right British National Party was elected a MEP at the European parliamentary elections & was subsequently invited onto Question Time & proceeded to make a complete twat of himself, give these far-right hatemongering fucks enough rope & they will hang themselves but attempt to no platform far-right hatemongering gobshites you risk making them free speech martyrs which is what they want. Okay the ploy of giving enough rope to far-right hatemongering gobshites & they’ll hang themselves doesn’t always work, I mean sure Nick Griffin & the BNP are nowhere to be found these days but some would suggest they just simply morphed into Nigel Farage & UKIP, it’s more than a coincidence that ever since Nigel Farage started having an ever increasing platform in the mainstream to spout hatemongering bullshit we’ve also seen a spike in racist & homophobic hate crimes, but it’s not just been his regularity on BBC Question Time which is the issue, it’s that the calibre of panellists appearing alongside him not being up to snuff, sure comedian Russell Brand damning Nigel Farage as a pound shop Enoch Powell was a funny quip, but what is needed is a somebody appear on the QT panel alongside Nigel Farage who’s intelligent & militant enough to seriously take the pompous racist twat to task for the shit he spouts & thus seriously undermine him.

First They Came for Extinction Rebellion & Next It Could Be The Labour Party

Climate-Emergency campaign group Extinction Rebellion has been placed on a counter-terrorist list of ‘extremist ideologies’ alongside the likes of Islamic Jihadists & Neo-Nazis, err? Huh? What the fuck?!?!? I don’t recall any Extinction Rebellion activist having threatened to blow themselves up on the streets of London if we don’t all go immediately carbon neutral nor do I recall any Extinction Rebellion protest ending in a violent fracas. Yes Extinction Rebellion can be fucking annoying & disruptive as fuck with their protests, but hardly a bunch of terrorists me thinks merely a bunch of idealistic hippy teenagers who want a better world & it’s not as if I personally think Extinction Rebellion always hit their mark with their protests. I remember seeing the ruckus when during the last round of Extinction Rebellion protests, when Extinction Rebellion activists climbed on top of a Tube train at Canning Town station which is a predominantly working-class area of London & thus the kind of jobs the vast majority of people will be commuting to in & out of Canning Town will be those lousy low waged jobs people can easily get sack from for not showing up on time, why didn’t Extinction Rebellion hold a demo a few stops westbound on the Jubilee Line at Canary Wharf where those who are in high finance tend to live & work, you know the banksters who are truly fucking up the environment & climate by fucking each over for percentage in exploiting the world’s resources.

But how annoying & disruptive Extinction Rebellion’s protests happen to be, I think having the government deem Extinction Rebellion as an ‘extremist ideology’ is in fact extremely dangerous particularly when we now have a hard-right government who’ll do all they can to crush the political left in this country, oh & yes I’m not being hyperbolic & emotive when I say the Martin Niemöller poem First They Came… does apply to this because next it could very well be the Labour Party being deemed as an ‘extremist ideology’, in fact we’ve already seen some evidence of a move towards this with the mainstream news media who are in bed with the Tory government smearing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as a Marxist & an extremist etc.

Despite there being a serious upsurge in far-right terrorism over the past decade in the United States & around the globe, in the United States there have been attempts by GOP politicians to have Antifa categorised as a terrorist group. Antifa isn’t actually any one homogenised group or necessarily a network of groups, it is in fact an ideology & that ideology is antifascist, so essentially GOP politicians want to outlaw the ideology of antifascism which I kind of think is more than a tad alarming, it’s fucking Orwellian! I don’t agree with everything done in the name of antifa, but overall Antifa activists generally get my support as there needs to be visible resistance against fascist bullshit & fascist bully boys, I also know it would be Antifa activists who’d defend me a physically disabled Jewish trans woman from the threat of fascist violence

The bottom line with fascist grievances against Antifa is that because they’re fascists they seem to think they should solely own the streets & can’t grasp that in a liberal democracy people have the right to counter-protest fascist bullshit & defend themselves against fascist violence. Ironically those who more then often are the ones calling for the Extinction Rebellion to be banned because they’re disruptive are also the ones who support the far-right likes of the English Defence League to march through the streets of whatever town or city no matter if that protest is disruptive with it being free speech etc & of course they’d likely accuse me of wanting to have the EDL banned because I’m on the political left when in fact I wouldn’t have any far-right march banned. I’m indeed politically leftwing but I’m also a strong civil-libertarian, so the English Defence League or Britain First or the Democratic Football Lads Alliance or whatever other bunch of drunken racist gammon want to march wherever that’s fine with me so long as they respect people have a right to counter-protest & their protest/demo/march doesn’t descend into violence which has been the major issue with far-right demos & marches, we’ve seen it when anytime Tommy Robinson gets thrown in prison for being a naughty boy there are more often than not near on riots involving his legion of racist gammon fanboys.

I think many will be asking why it is that far-right likes of the English Defence League & Britain First aren’t proscribed groups whereas Extinction Rebellion now appears to be, when so often far-right protests descend into violence & yet Extinction Rebellion have always been about peaceful protest? In answer look to the United States where the likes of GOP senator Ted Cruz has been calling for Antifa to be classed as a terrorist group, is this because the likes of Cruz are aware of the constituency of voters who’ll more then likely vote for a conservative GOP douchebag that fascist fucks are more then likely to vote GOP, now look at the kind of Tory government we have led by Boris Johnson & the support they’re now getting from the far-right likes of Tommy Robinson & Katie Hopkins who’d gladly fascistically crush the entire political left.

Greggs Vegan Sausage Rolls & Trans People & The Fascism of Knuckle-Dragging Gammon

Remember at the beginning of 2018 when bakery chain Greggs launched a vegan sausage roll which had Piers Morgan vomiting on Good Morning Britain & venting about how this was political correctness gone mad, well I’m surprised he wasn’t upchucking one of Greggs new vegan steak bakes launched last week particularly on hearing the news that a court ruled veganism to be protected ethical characteristic.

In other foodie related news, specifically news concerning bakery firms who financially support the Tories, Warburtons last week were besieged on social-media by a backlash from bigoted far-right gammon due to the bakery firm having put a halal symbol on loafs of bread which they produce equivalent to the bakery firm having put the kosher symbol on packs of bagels which they produce, fuck me the way some bigoted gammon knuckle-dragging Tommy Robinson fanboy wankers were bollocking on about Warburtons having put a halal symbol on their products you’d of thought Warburtons were supporting the imposition of Sharia Law upon us all, don’t tell me next Warburtons will be supporting Anjem Choudary to be Britain’s Supreme Ayatollah because I really see a Tory supporting bakery firm from Northern England doing that NOT!

Those bigoted far-right gammon who have been getting wound up no end about Warburtons having stuck a halal symbol of their goods are no doubt the same bigoted gammon who were getting all wound up at the beginning of last year when Greggs launched the sale of vegan sausage rolls in their stores & probably were just as displeased with Greggs launching their new vegan steak bake, yes it wasn’t just Piers Morgan ranting & raving about Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls in their stores being political correctness gone mad blahdy etc blah, I distinctly recall bovine loving gammon knuckle-draggers getting their panties in a serious bind & acting like utter fucking snowflakes about Greggs selling fucking vegan sausage rolls, spewing such nonsensical conspiratorial bullshit about how Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls was some nefarious means of turning everybody into being vegans.

I’m not a vegan, I’m very much a carnivore, I like nothing better then chumping down a tasty cheeseburger or a lovely medium rare steak & my opinion about Greggs vegan sausage rolls is they’re utter shite, but nobody is forcing me to eat a Greggs vegan sausage roll yet if you believed the shite bigoted far-right gammon knuckle-dragging Tommy Robinson fanboy wankers were spouting you’d of thought this was some massive imposition upon them which is some mega threat to their way of life. Oh please gammon just fuck off with the conspiratorial bullshit about Greggs selling vegan baked goods as a nefarious means in turning everybody into vegans because nobody is forcing you to eat vegan anything for fucks sake. Most vegans I know whether they’re vegans for health or ethical reasons or both aren’t trying to convert anybody into eating a vegan, no vegetarian nor vegan has ever harassed me nor even merely suggested I should eat a vegetarian or vegan diet, nor have I ever heard of any militant vegan ever going into a steakhouse wearing to a suicide vest demanding the entire populous cease eating meat because meat is murder, yet despite vegans on the whole being extremely peace loving people they might as well be strapping on bombs & attempting to convert everybody into not using meat related products, because gammon will continue with the conspiratorial bullshit as seem to have this innate paranoia that vegans are trying to convert the entire populous into being vegans, they actually have the same innate paranoid bullshit about all groups in society different to them including trans people.

I’m trans woman & I nor any other trans person is trying to convert anybody into being trans, you’re either born trans or your not, what I & nearly all other trans people are asking for is that we are treated with dignity & respect, but apparently this is too much to ask for with the infestation of gammon there is now throughout society hence why you have Piers Morgan not just upchucking vegan sausage rolls on ITV’s Good Morning Britain but also verbally beating up trans activists such as Munroe Bergdorf. Piers Morgan reflects the gammon infestation’s inability to accept difference & diversity, whether it’s Greggs selling vegan sausage rolls or trans people demanding to be respected on par with the rest of society. Despite the fact if we were all meant to be the fucking same we’d all have been born fucking clones of one another, but with gammon we must be like them or else, hmm I kind of think trying to impose we should all be like braindead gammon to be you know a bit fascistic!

How About Seeing Some Counter-Recruiting On Television?

The military yesterday launched a new recruitment campaign aimed at social-media addicts, to which my response is hey I’d prefer plebs spent their lives on Facebook then be a hired killer for the Military Industrial Complex. I’m so fucking fed up with these flashy military recruitment television advertisements spinning the lie that serving in the army or navy or whatever other fucking branch of the military is awesomely cool, when in fact those who sign up to be grunts in the military are merely cannon fodder in the next war for oil which will get gammon racists or stiff with excited as it will dressed as war against the threat of them brown people who eat halal pose to western civilisation blahdy bullshit blah, just as pretty much every war involving the British military which has happened in my own lifetime.

If the military are allowed to have recruitment adverts airing on commercial television, then why aren’t the Quakers or some other pacifist group allowed to have counter-recruitment adverts air on the same commercial television channels? Oh right the reason pacifist & anti-war groups aren’t allowed to run counter-recruitment adverts on commercial television is it’s deemed to be ‘political advertising’ & political advertising is prohibited on commercial television etc, yeah because running adverts attempting to recruit those who know no better to go kill brown people for their oil isn’t at all political.

British troops posing for a photos with their mate Tommy king of the racist gammon

Oh fuck off to those who say the military is about politics or that the military is politically neutral, yeah because British troops posing for photos with convicted fraudster & king of racist gammon Tommy Robinson isn’t at all political, troops using photos of Jeremy Corbyn for target practice after a prominent military chief ostensibly threatened a military coup if Jeremy Corbyn had been elected Prime Minister of course none of that is at all political, nor was it political that from military chiefs on down through the military ranks were happy to fight a war in Iraq despite in breaking international law. So yeah Fuck off with the bullshit notion ‘the military is above politics’ because everything is fucking political, learn to grasp this fact & while you’re at it stop coming out with illogical bullshit like you support the troops not the war because there’d not be a fucking war if the troops weren’t fucking fight it!

I’m no anarchist peacenik who thinks all conflicts can be resolved with a chat over a cup of herbal tea, we definitely need a military to defend this country, but that’s defend country not pursue the interests of greed of billionaire motherfuckers who only ever profit from death & destruction which is more often then not is dressed up as defending the interests of this country.

Oh & before anybody accuses me for ‘disrespecting the troops’ as they’re prepared to die protecting my freedom, hey I don’t deny their aren’t troops currently serving as there have been military personnel throughout history prepared to put down their lives to defend the freedoms we enjoy & I salute those who have made that sacrifice, but Iraq & Afghanistan & the first Gulf War that wasn’t about ‘defending our freedom’ & it’s not those who sign up to serve in the military I ultimately knock it’s the lie pun to recruit them & those who spin that lie.

The Winner Of The 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Award Is….

It’s the last day of the year & so time to reflect upon the last year, time to think who’s been the biggest dickhead when it comes to the realm of socio-political bullshit, which cunt of utter cunts has fucked me off the most.

I’m tempted to award Iain Duncan Shit with Botha’s 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year, as he’s more deserving of ‘cunt of the year’ award then the knighthood he’s receiving in the New Year Honours considering he’s the architect of the Tories ‘welfare reform’ program which has resulted in a genocidal level of disabled people being murdered. But Iain Duncan Shit misses out on being awarded Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year this year, because how much it might fucking well fuck me off that he’s able to freely walk the streets when he should be in prison for crimes against humanity, there have been other cunts who’ve fucked me off this year & there have been bigger dickheads when it comes to politics.

I’m actually awarding Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year in 2019 to two people, the first is a trans woman, but it’s not Kellie Maloney who told me I was an intolerant bigot yet she’s the one who was a member of UKIP an out & out xenophobic political party whereas I’m the one who has fought racism since I can remember from the days I campaigned against Apartheid in my native South Africa to opposing UKIP & the rise the far-right, nor am I awarding Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year in 2019 to Caroline Cossey despite her being a bigoted truscum cunt who’s a control freak bully wanting to regiment everything from my bowel movements to the words I write.

India Willoughby

The first recipient of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Is …(drumroll)… India Willoughby, this is because of the truscum bigoted cunt constantly spewing transphobic bollocks in the mainstream news media mainly on Good Morning Britain where its more then obvious being a failed journalist she’s angling for a job, anytime Piers Morgan as the presenter of Good Morning Britain wants to go on some transphobic rant there’s India as a trans woman to give him some sort of shield of credence when he starts whipping up hate towards the trans community. Whilst appearing on Good Morning Britain India Willoughby has come out with such truscum/transphobic/homophobic bigoted shite as accusing the LGBTQ community acting like the KGB…..oh is this because those of proud to be LGBTQ have called you out for your bigotry towards sections of the LGBTQ community geez how dare we oppose transphobic & homophobic bigotry which helps no LGBTQ person, she repeatedly denies the identity (she’s even denied the existence) of non-binary people yet whines about being misgendered…..though being a trans woman myself I know how hurtful it is for plebs to continuously misgender you but as India denies the existence of non-binary people she hasn’t a fucking leg to stand on when it comes to whining on about how cruel & unjust it is to be misgendered if you’re a trans woman, India is constantly posing as if she’s the arbiter of what’s who is & isn’t trans & how specifically how trans women should convey themselves…err fuck off India who the fuck put you in charge & what makes you a fucking expert because though you might be trans nearly everything I’ve heard from you tells me your in fact incredibly ignorant about trans stuff & the fact you nearly always seem to side with the enemies of the trans community such as TERFs & god bothers says a great deal. The last time I saw India Willoughby appearing on Good Morning Britain she said she no longer identifies as trans, oh geez India we are so heartbroken you no longer identify as trans which is why there were trans woman dancing in the street to that news, actually I wasn’t dancing in the street because I just know as soon Piers Morgan wants to stoke up more hate towards trans people whilst presenting Good Morning Britain, there will be India Willoughby to assist him because considering her floundering journalistic career she’s probably angling for Piers Morgan to give her a leg up.

It’s probably going to bruise Willougby’s ego somewhat to find out that she’s actually the joint winner of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year ha fucking ha.

There is an overpopulate field of far-right scumbag cunts spouting hate & intolerance, Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins & Paul Joseph Watson are all apt candidates for Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year & any of whom could won this prodigious award any other year, but one far-right scumbag cunt has exceeded all other far-right scumbag cunts in their far-right scumbag cuntishness.

Carl Benjamin

The second recipient of the 2019 Botha’s Dickhead Cunt Of The Year Is …(drumroll)… Carl from Swindon, aka Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Wankhard, aka weird rapey tweet man, aka the man who’s clown car antics during this year’s European Election campaign not only sunk politics in this country to a new low but managed to sink UKIP as any kind of serious contender in British politics. As well as Carl proving himself by far the biggest far-right dickhead of the year, he also helped to inspire one of my favourite YouTube vids of 2019 Sargonian Rhapsody which believe me is saying something as I utterly detest the original Bohemian Rhapsody. I bet Carl after having gone out of his way to harass Labour MP Jess Philips with rapey orientated bullshit is now grinding his teeth because she’s in the running to replace Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader whereas Carl where the fuck is he with is political career, oh fucking ha fucking ha, hey maybe in 2020 Carl could join the Tories as the rest of the far-right pondlife appears to be doing, actually I’m kind of hoping he actually will join Tories as Carl is something of the grim reaper when it comes to political movements.

Yes in 2019 its been India Willougby & Carl Benjamin who have fucked me off no end, far more then Boris Johnson or Iain Duncan Smith or Donald Trump or Alex Jones, but have no doubt all those names I’ve listed are most definitely cunting cuntish cunts!

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.

Violent Fascist Thugs Are Now Joining The Tory Party

I have to make a correction about Imran Ahmad-Khan who I had mentioned in two previous articles as being the first openly gay Muslim to be elected to any national parliament, apparently Imran isn’t openly gay as LGBT+ Conservatives had led myself & Pink News & others to believe, none the less he is a Muslim Tory politician along with the likes of Sayeeda Warsi & Savid Javid & I had thought this Muslim presence within the higher echelons of the Tory Party might rankle with Britain First considering they’re a thuggish rabble of uber Islamophobic bigots but apparently not.

Britain First are an out & out group of fascist thugs who’s leadership has just urged its members & supporters to join the Tory Party, I guess it shouldn’t be of any great surprise considering other prominent far-right figures such as king of the racist gammon Tommy Robinson & vilest of vile hatemongering gobshite trolls Katie Hopkins have endorsed Boris Johnson during the GE2019 campaign & have now joined the party since the party’s election victory, but having an out & out group of fascist thugs joining the Tories seems far more troubling particularly as Boris Johnson has said nothing to dissuade fascist thugs from joining the Tories.

Let me remind everybody exactly who Britain First happen to be, I mean these days they’re not in the news as much as they use to be, but it wasn’t so long ago come a Saturday afternoon there’d be tens of green jacketed Britain First gammon thugs terrorising provincial town centres across England with rallies & marches pushing their odious agenda of hate & intolerance. Notoriously of all Britain First’s terrorisation of town centres on any given weekend were the infamous series of ‘Christian Patrols’ around the centre of Luton which amounted to harassing not just Muslim women with abuse & intimidation but anybody else they took a disliking to, this eventually resulted in both Britain First’s former deputy leader Jayda Fransen & Britain First’s leader Paul Golding being banned from entering a 20 mile radius of Luton. Fransen & Golding were also banned from every mosque in the country after Britain First orchestrated several ‘mosque invasions’ which entailed harassing & intimidating anybody who happened to be attending the mosque at the time.

The last time I recall Britain First being in the news was the unsurprising revelation that Jayda Fransen had quit Britain First after having been in an abusive relationship with leader Paul Golding, oh well it’s not just being a racist & Islamophobic bigoted fuck which Golding has in common with Boris Johnson, yes remember back in the summer the police were called to Boris’s house when he was suspected of having physically assaulted his girlfriend, also worth remembering newly signed up Tory Party member Tommy Robinson’s first of many criminal offences was for assaulting an off-duty policeman who had staged an intervention when Tommy was physically assaulting his then girlfriend, next Carl Benjamin will be defecting from UKIP to the Tories to amp up the misogynistic hate.

There’s this great internet meme about the fact that everything Carl Benjamin has been involved with has turned to shit, so in fact it might not be such a bad thing if Carl aka Sargon WankHard aka creepy rape man did defect from UKIP to the Tories because he then can do for the Tories what he did for UKIP.

I honestly can’t believe there aren’t Tories alarmed that Boris nor any other senior Tory has said anything publicly to dissuade knuckle-dragging fascist thugs from joining the Tories, come on do you Tories really want to be known for being the party of thugs such as Tommy Robinson & Paul Golding who continuously encourage hate & intolerance by violent means, come on do you Tories seriously want to have members who’d rather settle an argument about immigration or diversity with their fists rather than with their intellect (as if the likes of Golding or Robinson have any intellect). If generally Tories don’t object to known fascist thugs who’d rather settle an argument with violence then that just illustrates how much the Tories are descending into truly becoming the nazi party rather then just the nasty party & one has to start worrying about defending one’s own liberty to merely be themselves by all necessary means.

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.

Are Tommy & Katie Finding Out Hate Doesn’t Pay?

With all the revelations over the past few weeks concerning Prince Andrew having been way too frigging chummy with Jefferey Epstein who was a convicted sex trafficker & child abuser as well as Andrew himself possibly also having had sordid encounters with underage girls in nightclubs, you’d of thought Tommy Robinson being the self-appointed witchfinder general against paedophilia would be all over Prince Andrew scandal like a bad rash, protesting like motherfucker that a member of the royal family could very well have & who knows might still be grooming underage girls for sex, oh no wait Tommy is only interested in paedophiles who have brown skin, actually people with brown skin don’t necessarily have to be paedophiles to incur Tommy’s wrath because Tommy is in fact a vile racist thug.

Tommy Robinson

Tommy Robinson king of the racist gammon has been bitching that he isn’t getting enough donations from his gullible knuckle-dragging fanbase, weird isn’t when far-right grifters ain’t getting paid enough to hate they turn on their fanbase, I remember a year or two ago fellow far-right grifting troll Milo Yiannopoulos having a tantrum about his fans not giving him enough financial support. You know its endorsing Boris Johnson which has done it for Tommy, I mean Boris has an endless number of flaws but at least he accepts that manmade climate-change is real, sure I’d expect Boris & the Tories will do a feeble amount in actually combatting climate-change if re-elected, but the fact Tommy has endorsed a man who accepts climate-change is real has probably been too much like Tommy selling out as for those gammon actually capable of reading & you know they’re getting their news from Infowars which pushes out an endless amount of fake news that climate-change is a hoax.

Tommy is currently being sued for £100,000 by a Syrian schoolboy for libel, Robinson accused Jamal Hijazi in a Facebook video (which incidentally got Robinson banned from Facebook) of beating up three schoolgirls when in fact it was Jamal who was being continuously harassed, bullied & assaulted. No wonder Tommy has been asking his legion of gullible gammon fanboys to get with it in sending him Moola because this libel case could ruin Tommy (Oh lets hope so) but this wouldn’t be the first time a far-right troll has been bankrupted for shit they’ve said ain’t that right Katie Hopkins.

Katie Hopkins

It was recently reported that Katie Hopkins had to sell her £1million 5 bedroom luxury home in Devon due being financially wiped-out after losing a libel case brought by food writer & social justice activist Jack Monroe, she’s actually been whinging in the press about how speaking her mind has cost her media career & bankrupted her, oh my heart bleeds NOT, fuck her she is vilest of vile hatemongering gobshite cunts, okay maybe I feel sorry for her kids to have a mother like Katie Hopkins, but if Hopkins ends up on welfare I will laugh my arse off considering all the nasty shit she’s said in the past about people getting benefits.

Even if Jamal Hijazi isn’t successful with the libel case he’s brought against Tommy Robinson, I know journalist Mike Stuchbery is looking to bring a libel case against Tommy & is seeking funding to do so, Mike is a regular contributor to the monthly Let The Eat KEK vlogcast which you find on my chum Kevin Logan’s YouTube channel, it’s essentially an antifascist show detailing all the month’s activities regards far-right gammon, I haven’t as yet been asked to contribute to the show despite having devoted many hours writing about the antics of the far-right however the lack of contribution from yours truly shouldn’t deter you from tuning in.

Thoughts About Armistice Day/Remembrance Sunday & Jeremy Corbyn

Today is Armistice Day & yesterday was Remembrance Sunday & has become way too common there have been numerous stories in the mainstream news media about how former military servicemen permanently injured in active are getting screwed by the current Tory government’s program to dismantle the welfare state, yet the bulk of the mainstream news media who run such stories about former injured military servicemen getting screwed by the Tories ‘welfare reform’ program are the same news media outlets who continuously attack Jeremy Corbyn who if elected PM would ensure former servicemen don’t get such a fucking raw deal.

Jeremy Corbyn at the Cenotaph at yesterday’s Remembrance Sunday commemoration

As per fucking usual with every Remembrance Sunday commemoration at the Cenotaph in London since Jeremy Corbyn has attended as the leader of the Labour Party, there have been the fucking monotonous indignatios bitching in sections of the Tory press about Corbyn showing disrespect by not bowing low enough for their liking or for not wearing a large enough poppy or whatever, but of course no mention from those same news media outlets that he has often chosen to go speak to military veterans after the Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph rather then attend lunch laid on at Buckingham Palace for VIP dignitaries etc.

Of course there’s always going to be the game of mass distraction with the Tory press by shooting the messenger then acknowledging the message as a means of conditioning the masses, yeah no mention that Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t want to see servicemen trained up to go kill then cast aside like dog turd when they’ve outlived their usefulness in the imperialist misadventures which recent governments have entangled the British military in, nah its all about the depth of his bow & the size of his poppy & ignorant gammon fuckwits lap this shit up. Fuck me some gammon wouldn’t be happy even if Jeremy Corbyn wore a blimp sized poppy, of course there’s no talking to ignorant gammon that many military servicemen particularly in regards to those who served in the Second World War fought for the right of individuals to in fact chose whether to wear a red poppy in their lapel or not in the run up Remembrance Sunday & Armistice Day, oh & if you do chose to wear a poppy in your lapel in the run up to Remembrance Sunday & Armistice Day don’t you dare wear the LGBTQ rainbow poppy, ah yes far-right gammon fuckwits seem to have been triggered somewhat on social-media in recent weeks by people wearing the LGBTQ rainbow poppy maybe because it’s a reminder that military servicemen aren’t all angry young men wanting go kill Muslims.

I often feared as with the Union Jack that the far-right has attempted to hijack the poppy or at least there’s been pressure upon us all to have an absolute undying love & reverence for the military & never daring to question the wars they are sent to fight. I should state here that I’m no pacifist, I do think there are wars which are justified just that many of the wars within my own lifetime haven’t been justified, endless fucking wars in the Middle East have been endless wars for oil orchestrated by the Military Industrial Complex & isn’t it ironic that gammon get all gung-ho about killing Muslims because they ignorantly buy into all the propaganda bullshit about Islam being the greatest threat to western civilisation as a front for these wars not knowing the Military Industrial Complex responsible for such propaganda as an excuse for wars to fatten their wallets are part of the same neoliberal capitalist hierarchy shitting upon gammon from a great height something which Jeremy Corbyn wants to put a stop to!

I’d imagine many servicemen who’ve had to march off to war have possibly hoped by them having had to march off to war that future generations wouldn’t have to, well the best means to honour those troops is to in fact avoid having to send troops off to war which exactly what Jeremy Corbyn ultimately wants to do, no more imperialist misadventures at the behest of the Military Industrial Complex, no more bombing poor countries to fucking smithereens to plunder their natural resources & then have ignorant gammon bitch endlessly about people from those counties risking their lives in attempt to migrate to our shores.
