Labour Leadership Candidates Might Not As Yet Be Playing Topless Darts For Your Entertainment But I Will Still Report On the Leadership Election Campaign So Far

So Jess Phillips has now officially withdrawn from the 2020 Labour leadership election, saying she wasn’t the leadership candidate who’d be best able to unite all factions of the Labour Party & then take Labour’s message to the country. Jess you’re in fact wrong about not being able to unite the Labour party as you’ve pretty much united the Labour grassroots in opposition to you. I heard former Labour leadership candidate Liz Blairite Kendall when appearing on BBC Politics Live say in response to Jess Phillips woeful performance at the leadership hustings in Liverpool this past weekend that it was unfair to have expected Jess to have been substantive on policy, oh so the chairperson at the leadership hustings should have asked Jess who was seeking to lead the main opposition party in this country & thus essentially the government in waiting, what colour socks does she prefers wearing or have political journalists ask her what’s her favourite variety of ice cream? Yes I realise Jess Phillips has a personality, in fact she has oodles of personality, which no one will doubt is a positive as I’m sure it’s endearing for many people, but we need somebody as Labour leader who’s a bit more then a gobshite when it comes to cold hard politics, yes Boris Johnson endears himself to people with his whole lovable roguish buffoon act but he seriously lacks an eye for detail the consequence of which has contributed to an innocent British woman to be locked up in an Iranian prison.

Jess Phillips

I’ve heard various complaints that the current Labour leadership election lacks personality & fizz to it & all in all has been pretty fucking boring. I don’t know what people expect, the candidates contesting the Labour leadership election answering questions on a future Labour government having an integrated transport whilst playing a game of topless darts or answering questions about implementing a Green New Deal whilst playing a round of crazy golf with a washing up glove on their head & having to squawk like a chicken when they miss a shot. The Labour leadership election isn’t some chavvy lame arsed reality TV gameshow here to entertain you, it’s about discussing the serious day to day politics which will affect us all, sure I’ve complained myself about this leadership election campaign being so far somewhat lacklustre, but it was never going to have the fizz & zing that the 2015 Labour leadership election had with Corbynmania & Liz Kendall who if I hadn’t known was a Labour MP I’d have thought was running to be Tory leader with the stuff she was saying.

Labour leadership hustings in Liverpool

Now Jess Phillips has dropped out of the Labour leadership contest, I guess all eyes will turn on Emily Thornberry who’s the other candidate many pundits thought wouldn’t make it through the second round of nominations & onto the final ballot. Yes Emily Thornberry does have a history in being somewhat of a gobshite prone to making gaffes but whereas Jess Phillips’s performance at the recent hustings in Liverpool was shite, I heard some passionate fire from Emily when tackling questions on hot topic issues, plus Emily unlike Jess has frontbench experience & who just loves to remind us all she’s held 7 different frontbench position & has stepped in for Jeremy Corbyn at Prime Ministers Questions. Though she might not have secured any endorsements from trade union affiliates, I’d imagine her campaign strategy has always been to get the requisite number of nominations from Labour Constituency Parties to get onto the final ballot & well after her performance at the weekend she has started to receive nominations from a growing number of CLPs & I don’t think its beyond the realm of possibility she’ll get the required 5% of CLPs backing her for her name to be on the final ballot.

Emily Thornberry

Keir Starmer already has his name on the final ballot to be Labour leader after securing endorsement from two trade union affiliates, but the question I currently have about Keir is am I the only reckons he looks like marionette out of Thunderbirds? I was a little surprise to find out that Journalist & economist & Northern Soul devotee Paul Mason is backing Keir Starmer to be leader considering Paul’s politics are very much to the left even more so then myself & well just about everything Keir Starmer has been saying has been decidedly Blairite when he’s not playing to the gallery. I actually have a great deal of respect for Paul Mason being both an economist & journalist myself (if somewhat hampered by dyslexia) & I actually having something of the hots for Paul as he does seem to be a bloke’s bloke, but I wondering if Paul is backing Keir because he genuinely thinks Labour need to move to the centre ground of politics to have any chance of getting elected back into government or if he’s angling for a job as an adviser if Keir is elected Labour leader?

Keir Starmer

I see Keir was again playing to the gallery at the hustings in Liverpool with him saying he wouldn’t give an interview to The Sun during the leadership election campaign, obviously that’s going to play well to a crowd in Liverpool considering The Scum’s appalling coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster, but it’s a somewhat manipulative statement from Keir as it doesn’t rule he won’t give an interview to The Scum if elected Labour leader.

Lisa Nandy

Lisa Nandy has now joined Keir Starmer on the final leadership ballot after getting the endorsements of both the GMB & NUM unions & the more I hear from Lisa Nandy the more I like Lisa Nandy. Some on the Labour left were putting it about she was a ‘Red Tory’, but from what I’ve been hearing from her I’d say that assessment is bollocks. At the Liverpool hustings she said there had been a schism between how people in London & people up north interpreted Labour’s proposed Green New Deal which was part of Labour failing to properly communicate stuff to the electorate during the GE2019 campaign, the fact Lisa Nandy is able to detect that being an issue tells me she not only has a good deal of insight but has a good deal of insight from having listened to people. The other thing which has also impressed me about Lisa Nandy in past week is she’s handled herself well when under fire in interviews with both Andrew Neil & Piers Morgan. Lisa Nandy appears to be a candidate who has both a personality & can deliver the goods on policy when up against it, if I hadn’t already publicly endorsed Rebecca Long-Bailey, I’d have endorsed Lisa Nandy.

Rebecca Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey seems to fast becoming the forgotten candidate in this Labour leadership contest, okay there was that story circulating the other day about her personal views on abortion, yeah maybe she does have moral objections to abortion but she’s not proposing to make abortions illegal so where’s the fucking problem? Jimmy Carter was personally opposed to abortion but as both governor of Georgia & US president supported a woman’s right to choose, it pretty much sounds like possibly being the same deal in regard to Rebecca Long-Bailey, Jimmy Carter is one of the most underrated US presidents as far as I’m concerned & as far as I’m concerned Rebecca Long-Bailey could be a great Labour leader & a great Prime Minister, she’s confident & competent & she’s saying all the right things, but where is the zing & kapow in her leadership election campaign. It’s not as if I’m expecting belly dancers & a laser light show at her rallies, but it really feels as if her campaign hasn’t got going even if she has the support of Labour activist group Momentum who were so instrumental in getting Jeremy Corbyn elected Labour leader. I know that I’m viewing a great deal of this Labour leadership contest through the prism of the mainstream news media who are decidedly biased against Rebecca Long-Bailey, but the mainstream news media were biased against Jeremy Corbyn during the 2015 Labour leadership contest yet did pick up the huge wave of support for him. Momentum really need to drum up some momentum behind Rebecca Long-Bailey because as it currently stands she hasn’t as yet gotten any endorsement from any trade union affiliates & has around the same number of nominations from Labour Constituency Parties as Emily Thornberry, could it be Rebecca Long-Bailey the official candidate of the left might not make it onto the final ballot in the Labour leadership election?

More Megxit Bullshit

I literally spat my morning coffee out in shock when tuning into Kay Burley @Breakfast last Thursday or Friday because Kay Burley wasn’t standing outside Buckingham Palace where she & just about every other Sky News anchor had been broadcasting from for the past week, interviewing a procession of Tory journalists working for the Tory press denying the Tory press has ever been racist towards Meghan Markle despite people having produced countless comparisons of the mainstream news media coverage of Meghan Markle has been far more negative as compared to coverage been given to Kate Middleton (she’s the one who married Harry’s older brother William). Meanwhile whilst Kay Burley (who I can’t believe is nearly 60?!?!?) parked her arse outside Buckingham Palace entertaining members of the Tory press in denial, Piers Morgan over on ITV’s Good Morning Britain for a change wasn’t bullying trans people or vegans & instead was himself raging about he’s not being racist about Meghan Markle but… & proving with every angry word he spouted he is indeed being a racist gammon when it comes to Meghan Markle.

Oh & what the fuck is this bullshit with the mainstream news media having gotten its panties in a bind about Meghan Markle eating avocado on toast & it somehow contributing to fucking up the environment, yeah as if the fucking Tory press care about the environment, I mean if they did shouldn’t they be leading a campaign to stop supermarkets from stocking avocados or something. Why doesn’t the Tory press just come out with the suggestion that the only fruit Meghan Markle should be eating are bananas & start making monkey chants at her being the institutionally racist cunts the Tory press happen to fucking be! The Tory press are just bad as any National Front skinhead racist scumbag who has thrown banana peels & made monkey noises at Black people, the difference with the Tory press is it’s a highbrow form of racism not the lowbrow form of chavvy gammon racism we come to expect racism to be.

One irony is not lost on me in regards to Harry & Meghan & the mainstream news media, that being it’s pretty apparent Harry & Meghan have had enough of the shitty coverage & press intrusion they’ve received from the mainstream news media & so in response the mainstream news media are now obsessing about Meghan & Harry having had enough of the mainstream news media which includes having photographers camped outside where ever it is in Canada Meghan Markle has holed herself up waiting to get an unsolicited snap to accompany some story full of sensationalism untruths, fuck me challenge the mainstream news media establishment in this country & it triggers them to be even more cuntish something which of course in a speech at a private function this past weekend Harry addressed. But Harry taking on the mainstream news media establishment leads me to another irony from a different perspective, which is Harry might complain about the coverage given to him & Meghan but when there’s a cause he supports or something he needs to promote etc when he & Meghan are attempting to be more financially independent then he’s going to be calling on the mainstream news media for broadcast time & column inches.

Meghan & Harry

In the deal that seems to have been struck with grandma Lizzy, sorry royalist sycophants I meant her royal highness grandma Queen Lizzy, it’s now definitely going to be harder for Meghan & particularly Harry to dine out on having been members of the royal family, I mean not being able to use the title of HRH is going to knock a zero maybe a few zeros off any fee on the after dinner speaker circuit. With the deal struck with Queen Lizzy, Meghan & Harry are going to have to financially contribute to the multi-million pound renovation of the couples Frogmore Cottage residence despite the fact its on the royal estate at Windsor & thus (not sure this makes sense to anybody else?) wouldn’t it be more appropriate for those who want to be members of the royal family to pay for the renovation of any residences on any royal estate & then charge rent to whoever gwts to live there. One thing I did think a little unfair to Harry in regards to deal struck with Queen Lizzy for him & Meghan to step down as senior royals is that he’s going to have to relinquish many of his military appointments, now an acquaintance of mine who did serve in the military did explain to me this was because these appointments were royal appointments as in honouree head of the marines etc, but Harry Windsor did serve for real on the frontline in Afghanistan & though I might not always agree with imperialist misadventures of the Military Industrial Complex I do have some grudging respect for those troops who believe they’re helping defend the realm etc.

I know many comrades on the left of political spectrum who despite might wanting to abolish the monarchy are expressing solidarity with Harry & Meghan in wanting out of the royal rat-race & with the stance they’re taking against the mainstream news media establishment, but for me personally I think there’s irony of hypocrisy on all sides, actually as you might be able to tell from the title of this article I wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about having to write yet again about the supposed royal crisis surrounding Harry & Meghan. Yes it might be my job as a political commentator to write articles about stuff which is apparent in its political relevance because its dominating the news headlines or sometimes stuff which isn’t hitting the headlines that I think is of political relevant, a rabid republican I might be who’s taken many opportunities in the past to knock the institution of the monarchy,  but with this supposed royal crisis I just can’t help thinking royal crisis I royally don’t give shit about there being a royal crisis, maybe it’s because I think all this Megxit bullshit is really just some posh family having a tiff & there are more important things in this world for us to be obsessing about.

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.

Unlike Harry & Meghan I Won’t Be Stepping Back As A Senior Royal Nor As A Socialist Shitlord

I’d like to announce that I won’t be stepping back from being a senior socialist shitlord unlike Prince Harry & Meghan Markle who stepping back as senior royals, in fact I intend to continue to be as steadfastly gobshite about the monarchy as I’ve always been though Ironically I’m actually somewhat sympathetic as to the reasoning why Harry & Meghan have ostensibly resigned from the royal family.

Meghan & Harry

The mainstream news media publish a myriad of racist shite about Meghan Markle since before she married Harry Windsor then gets all upty about it not being becoming of Meghan & Harry wanting out of the royal rat-race because of all the shite they’ve published about the couple, yeah this kind of sums it up doesn’t it. Oh sure Harry & Meghan are currently living the high life courtesy of the public purse & their official abode Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate has just received a multi-mi;;ion pound renovation courtesy of the taxpayer, so I do understand how some people might feel as if their noses are being put out of joint by all this & I do find it somewhat laughable the line in the couple’s statement about stepping back as senior royals in wanting to become ‘financially independent’, what is Harry going to get a job as a nazi strip-a-gram which is going pay £3million a year.

Actually what scares me about Harry & Meghan wanting to become ‘financially independent’ is if they move to North America etc then they could become embroiled with some Jeffrey Epstein type character in the need to pay for the life they’ve become accustomed to & if that happens then there’s another fucking royal scandal for the mainstream news media to be fucking obsessing about. I’m not saying the mainstream news media shouldn’t hold the privileged & wealthy to account for any wrongdoings they might be guilty of committing & let us be honest Prince Andrew is more then likely a child molester who should be serving time at his mum’s pleasure, but I’m so fucking fed up with the royals being this real life soap opera for the mainstream news media to constantly obsess about as a mass distraction to the real stories there are about war & poverty, call me idealistic but I still believe in the news media being the fourth estate, All The President’s Men is still one of my favourite films, I think its beholden upon us all who work in the political news media to inform & enlighten not to dumb down gammon with continuous irrelevant shite about spats between members of the Royal Family.

If want to go enjoy a soup opera then go watch Dynasty or EastEnders or what ever shite which these days passes for being a soup opera, you know shitty acting & ludicrous scripts etc, I really can do without hearing about riffs between Harry & his brother William or that Harry wanting to quit the royals being hard on Queen Lizzy. Of course some royalist fuckwits will no doubt say Harry quitting & Prince Andrew kiddy fiddling has been hard on Her Majesty wanting to keep the institution of monarchy intact with dignity & integrity blahdy bullshit blah, hey I don’t give shit, because I don’t give a shit about the monarchy, sooner the better we have an elected head of state thus accountable head of state then having somebody who happened to be squeezed out the correct fanny with correct silver-spoon shoved up their arse, my mantra has been & always will be FUCK THE MONARCHY!

Rant #1 About BBC Question Time

Tonight sees a new series of the BBC’s topical debate program Question Time no doubt with the customary panel which has a Tory or rightwing bias, I’m sure now there’s a Tory government with a 80 seat parliamentary majority the BBC will use this against any accusations of stacking Question Time panels with gobshites who have a Tory bias blahdy bullshit blah, which has me wondering what the fuck was the BBC’s fucking excuse in having stacked BBC Question panels over the past decade with Tory gobshites considering the number of years we technically had a hung parliament because you tuned in week after week & it was always the same bullshit of having at least Tories beating up on the one Labour panellist.

If isn’t that BBC Question Time nearly always appearing to have a majority of panellists who have a Tory bias, then it’s always nearly the same panellists with a Tory bias. I remember the middle years of the last decade when Question Time practically became Farage Time because Nigel Farage the pompous racist twat was on the Question Time panel nearly other fucking week & if it weren’t Farage the pompous racist twat then it was some other UKIP racist/xenophobic cunt, nothing much has changed as there’s always the likes of Julie Hartley-Tory appearing on Question Time more often then her Tory gobshiteness stature fucking deserves, if not Julie Hartley-Tory or some other Daily Mail columnist then there’s some rightwing wank stain who writes for The Spectator despite the fact only Tory toffs ever read the Spectator, then there’s always the Ayn Rand Libertarian on speed from some rightwing thinktank such as the Institute Of Economic Affairs Tax Dodgers Alliance, oh & remember there’s always a Tory government spokesperson on panel these days most commonly James Cleverly & Grant Shapps which is what I mean by there’s two Tories on a Question Time panel beating up on the sole panellist who’ll be speaking for Labour.

Paris Lees on BBC Question Time

It’s obvious that the producers of BBC Question Time have tried to give the show greater mass appeal by having famous musicians or actors or authors as panellists, but if you ask me the only person to have appeared on the Question Time Panel who’s truly broken the mould in the past decade has been Paris Lees, I know some people might be thinking I’m only bigging up Paris appearing on Question Time because she’s a trans woman & you’d be absolutely correct, Paris was the first bonafide trans woman not to be seen as a fucking joke to have been a Question Time panellist thus could seriously articulate a positive trans perspective which has always been lacking in the mainstream news media & in all her appearances as a panellist on Question the audience has always warmed to her which is great if something of a surprise considering the audience always seem to be something of a mob of Daily Mail readers.

The issue with the Question Time audience isn’t just week after week having it made up of rent Daily Mail readers no matter where any edition of BBC Question Time is being held, it’s the audience is packed with Tory Party plants & I’m not only talking about talking about Tory boy from the edition of Question Time held in Brighton during the GE2019 campaign or from a while back the young Tory girl who for some reason reminded me of Daenerys Targaryen, I’m talking about audience members who are paid up Tory councillors & some who have been in the Question Time audience on multiple occasions & gotten to ask the panel questions on those multiple times they’ve been an audience participant, err you’d have thought the BBC Question Time production team might have employed researchers to prevent this kind of bullshit, oh who the fuck am I kidding this is the Tory biased BBC.

Keir Starmer Suspiciously Takes An Early Leader in the Labour Leadership Election & The Mainstream News Media Have Begun Smearing Rebecca Long-Bailey, Oh & When Will Jess Phillips Either Piss Or Get Off The Potty

Keir Starmer appears to have taken an early lead over Rebecca Long-Bailey in the Labour leadership election if a YouGov poll published yesterday in the mainstream news media is to be believed, yeah if you actually believe a poll conducted by a market research company which was co-founded by Nadhim Zahawi who’s now a Tory MP & a member of Boris Johnson’s cabinet which was published in the mainstream news media who since the moment Labour lost the GE2019 have been touting Starmer as the favourite to take over from Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader. I find the YouGov poll suggesting Starmer to be the frontrunner in the Labour leadership election somewhat fishy (then some!), supposedly a 1,000 Labour members were surveyed by YouGov yeah likely a 1,000 Labour members who’ve affiliations with Progress & Open Labour or some other Blairite groupings within Labour who have spent the best part of the last 5yrs undermining the Labour leadership. Yes Starmer has said he wants to build upon the socialist platform put forward by Jeremy Corbyn (continuity Corbynism) & has been making speeches about how Labour were right to have taken a radical approach to tackling austerity, but he’s merely attempting to play to the gallery, attempting to fool a Labour Party membership which is generally now on the left of the left when we all know he’s an out & out Blairite.

Keir Starmer

Keir Starmer hasn’t as yet officially announced his candidacy to stand in the Labour leadership election & nor has Rebecca Long-Bailey who’s the favoured continuity Corbynism candidate, but despite Rebecca Long-Bailey not having officially entered the Labour leadership election this hasn’t stopped the mainstream news media from launching a smear campaign against her because she is the continuity Corbynism candidate. Apparently the guy Rebecca Long-Bailey has enlisted to coordinate her campaign to be elected as Labour leader is a self-proclaimed Stalinist & Rebecca has said she would want to rule Labour with an Iron Fist, well at least we now know what Rebecca’s walk on music will be if she is elected Labour leader cue Lemmy & the boys.

Rebecca Long-Bailey

So far Emily Thornberry & Clive Lewis are the only two Labour MPs who’ve actually officially announced the their candidacy to stand in the Labour leadership election, Emily Thornberry has a history of making gaffes & well after all that’s happened over the past 5 years I just think I’m sure Emily has a good heart etc but no her being Labour leader, Clive Lewis seems to be a genuinely nice guy who’s on the left of the party but I don’t necessarily think nice guys always make great leaders.

Clive Lewis & Emily Thornberry

I did hear a Labour backbench MP say yesterday that no member of Corbyn’s frontbench team should be standing in the Labour leadership election as the entire shadow cabinet are collectively guilty for one of Labour’s worse ever General Election defeat which GE2019 definitely was, but if this is any kind of endorsement between the lines of Jess Phillips then please fuck off. Jess Phillips is another Labour MP who its rumoured to be thinking of entering the Labour leadership contest, sure she’s been dropping hints she might but this is what Jess archetypically does, she’s a publicity whore who yanks people’s chains to grab headlines but never follows through. All solidarity with Jess when it comes to all the shit she was subjected to by Carl from Swindon, aka Carl Benjamin, aka weirdo rapey tweet man, no female MP in fact no woman should ever be subjected to the rapey bullshit that fat slobby fuck subjected Jess Phillips to & why the fuck isn’t he in prison for it I don’t know, but my problem with Jess Phillips isn’t just she’s a self-serving attention seeking publicity whore, it’s also that she has endorsed WPUK a known transphobic hate group, yeah Jess is a TERF.

Jess Phillips

As yet I’m not sure as who I’ll back to be Labour leader, I had wanted Angela Rayner to stand to be the next Labour leader but it appears she’s made a pact with Rebecca Long-Bailey & will now only be standing for Deputy Labour leader the position Tom Watson vacated to take up a career as a gym instructor. One thing I’m clear about already clear in my mind about in regards to the Labour leadership election is that if Jess Philips does enter the contest & has any sniff of being elected leader or as consequence of a good showing in the leadership contest is rewarded with a position in the shadow cabinet, I will withdraw my support for Labour considering Philips is a TERF & for fucks sake there should not be any countenance of transphobia within Labour a party which purports to be the party of equality & social justice.

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.

It Pains Me Much To Say This About Jeremy Corbyn (But It Needs To Be Said!)

In reaction to the General Election results Jeremy Corbyn said “it was a disappointing night of results for Labour”, no Jeremy the 2019 General Elections results weren’t ‘a bit disappointing’ for Labour, the General election results were fucking disastrous (then some) for Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn has now said he wants to stay on as Labour leader to oversee a ‘period of reflection’ as to why Labour lost the election, hey Jeremy you want to reflect upon why Labour have so devastatingly lost this election then go stand in front of the bathroom mirror, because time & time again Labour activists were met on the doorstep with “I would vote Labour if it wasn’t for Jeremy Corbyn being leader”.

Corbyn & McDonnell & co are saying the reason Labour lost this election was because of Brexit, I don’t deny that people wanting to get Brexit done wasn’t a factor with this election, but Labour’s policy on Brexit didn’t help any, to say Labour were going to renegotiate a Brexit deal with the EU but then tell people to vote against it in a referendum is a nonsensical bullshit mess of a policy & people saw it for the mess what it was.

If it ain’t Brexit which the current Labour leadership is blaming for this General Election defeat then it’s the mainstream news media, yes most definitely the mainstream news media have continuously vilified & smeared & egregiously demonised Jeremy Corbyn since was elected leader of the Labour Party, but it doesn’t matter how much I or any other Labour support might bitch about how much the mainstream news media have been utter evil cunts in continuously demonising Jeremy Corbyn, whining about doesn’t get us anywhere.

it pains me to say but Jeremy is part of problem for Labour not its solution

The harsh reality is the accusations of antisemitism have hang over Jeremy like a bad cloud & it’s toxic to the Labour Party, I certainly do not believe Jeremy Corbyn to be antisemitic nor an IRA sympathiser or anything else the mainstream news media have smeared him as & I’ve written countless articles defending Jeremy from the mainstream-news-media’s bullshit smears spun against him, but it doesn’t matter how much I think Jeremy has been a courageously compassionate & principled man because ultimately it’s what the voters think of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour which is of importance & the GE2019 result speak for themselves on that matter.

Jeremy Corbyn should have resigned already, he should have gone this morning, the 1983 General Election result under the leadership of Michael Foot is often considered as an utter fucking disaster for Labour, well Jeremy Corbyn has surpassed Michael Foot when it comes to leading Labour to a mitigating fucking electoral disaster, at least Michael Foot had the courtesy to take responsible for the ’83 result & fucked off pronto.

I know some will accuse me of being too quick to throw Jeremy under the bus for the defeat of Labour at this General Election or make out that I’m just in shock regards the GE2019 election result & should give myself a few days before I write anything meaningful or some other bullshit to dismiss what I’m saying here. Hey do you know who I truly blame for the GE2019 result? I blame myself as I twice voted for Jeremy Corbyn to be party leader & was one of his most ferocious cheerleaders, but here we are in the cold light of day & I’ve not only just helped to inflict further misery upon my life but on the lives of millions. The people of places such as Darlington & Workington & numerous other northern towns which were devastated by Thatcherism back in the 1980s, have just given a Thatcherite government a hefty parliamentary majority & many living in in such places will seriously come to regret it, but I as well as the Labour Party need to take responsibility for the regret they will come to feel in time.

I was once one of Jeremy’s most ferocious cheerleaders

I know some Corbyn supporters will no doubt point to the 2017 General Election where Labour gained seats under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, well with the gift of hindsight me thinks that had more to do with Theresa May’s woeful performance as Tory leader then anything else, oh & Labour’s 2017 General Election manifesto was radical but not so radical it frightened people into thinking if they voted Labour they’ll be next be living under the rule of Marxist doctrine, you see before anybody accuses me of suddenly becoming some sell out watered down piss weak social-democrat that’s not in fact what I’m advocating at all, Jeremy Corbyn ostensibly won the argument on austerity, there were a lot of great ideas proposed by Labour with Jeremy as leader which have a great deal of public support such as axing tuition fees & renationalising the railways but the bottom line is Jeremy Corbyn was unable to sell those great ideas because of his past associations being toxic as fuck.

Even If Jeremy Corbyn Doesn’t Win The Election He’s Won The Argument

Today is the 39th anniversary of the murder of the man who composed what’s long become my own personal anthem, however when I think of Jeremy Corbyn & John Lennon songs it’s not Working Class Hero which comes to mind but the song Imagine, with lyrics such as “No need for greed or hunger” & “Imagine all the people sharing all the world” Imagine really does seem to reflect Corbyn’s vision for the world & yes you might think him a dreamer but he’s certainly not the only one.

Anytime I’ve heard Imagine over the past couple of years, I’ve immediately thought all of which Jeremy Corbyn has spent a lifetime campaigning for, so much so it I pretty much started thinking it was Jeremy Corbyn who composed & sung Imagine & forgetting that it was in fact John Lennon who did. I obviously can’t say for sure if John Lennon was alive today he’d have been supportive of Jeremy Corbyn but knowing all I know about John Lennon & considering the radical politics he was involved with in the 60s/70s there’s good chance might have, what I can say with absolute certainty is even Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t win the General Election this coming Thursday he’s won the argument.

Oh sure we all know it’s utter bullshit that the Tories will follow through when it comes to investing billions in public services if they win GE2019, but just the fact the Tories are pledging to invest billions in health & education & policing, that alone is an admission by the Tories they’ve lost the argument when it comes to austerity & it’s been Jeremy Corbyn who’s spearheaded the argument against austerity.

Though Jeremy Corbyn & Labour might have won the argument when comes to austerity, the issue might now be if the Tories do win this coming Thursday & do shake the magic money tree when it will only be in an effort to placate the middle-classes, in other words money won’t be invested where it’s most desperately needed, we’ll still have more foodbanks then branches of McDonalds, we’ll still have record numbers sleeping rough on the streets of Britain, we’ll still have Universal Credit contributing to killing off the most vulnerable. The only way to ensure money is invested where it ought to be invested to prevent people from going hungry & homelessness is to get Labour elected to government this coming Thursday, but everybody already seems way busy writing Labour’s GE2019 obituary.

Remember GE2017 when pretty much universally all self-important political pundits in the mainstream news media were all with their arrogant smugness writing off Labour, busying themselves compiling obituaries & autopsies about Labour’s inevitable battering at the ballot box long before election day, yeah & come election day they weren’t expecting Labour to increase it’s number of seats & in doing so winning parliamentary seats in places where Labour hadn’t previously won parliamentary seats. Right now we are pretty much at the same point we were with GE2017 & again all the self-important Westminster-bubble dwelling political pundits in the mainstream news media with their smug arrogance are already busying themselves penning obituaries & autopsies regards Labour’s hefty defeat this Thursday, despite the fact that Labour have closed the gap on the Tories in opinion polls published over the past few days & if the reflection of things tightening electorally in those opinion polls is at all accurate then we are in hung parliamentary territory thus it’s likely GE2019 could still result in there being some kind of Labour/SNP coalition government.

yes its still possible Jeremy Corbyn could be PM

All I’ve heard from political pundits in the mainstream news media over the past few days is will Jeremy Corbyn resign as Labour leader immediately after Labour’s crushing defeat on Thursday & how will a John McDonnell leadership be different & will he be grooming Rebecca Long-Bailey to take over as leader if he’s only to be an interim leader, it’s not as if I think John McDonnell wouldn’t make a good Labour leader but hey the election ain’t happened yet & you’re a fool to seriously predict with certainty it’s outcome, you’d have thought political pundits in the mainstream news media would have learnt this from GE2017.

If sadly Labour do lose the General Election on Thursday then at least Jeremy Corbyn can step down from the leadership of the party knowing he’s forever changed the party for the better. Yet another argument Corbyn won was with the Labour Party itself, seems a lifetime ago the party was mired by the dogma of Blairite Toryism, but Corbyn won the argument with his election as party leader & from that moment on with the direction in which he has steered Labour, jettisoning mediocrity of Blairite Toryism & reigniting Labour’s socialist fire, ensuring the party no longer attempts to mimic the Tories & run scared from any association with the term socialism in attempting to win power but instead with fanfare proudly heralding Labour is a socialist party offering upfront honest socialist solutions. I somehow can’t see in defeat Labour will once again be resorting back to thinking the only way they’ll ever win power is to mimic the Tories no matter how much the party might hiss & whine about doing so, because Labour is definitely no longer their party & the majority of the party don’t want Labour to be that party, the majority of the party membership are now those who’ve been inspired by Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist vision is possible & will want Labour to continue in offering an alternative to the Tories which is steadfastly socialist.
