Why Not Move The House Of Lords To Uranus & Hold PMQs At The Bottom Of The Ocean

Meanwhile over on political laughing stock television, the Tories have proposed moving the House of Lords from London to York, hey fuck it why not move the House of Lords to Uranus & hold Prime Minister Questions at the bottom of the ocean particularly as most people are probably of the opinion having two politicians at the bottom of the ocean would be a perfect start to there being a better world.

As I heard a Labour MP say there is more chance of a naked Boris Johnson riding Shergar around Yorkminster then there is of the House of Lords moving out of London, yeah it’s an utter bullshit proposal, it’s a non fucking story, but it does give me an opportunity to have a rant about the much needed constitutional & electoral reform this country needs & indulge in some good old fashion Tory bashing.

Why not move somebody with a brain into 10 Downing Street rather then move the House of Lords out of London to York or where the fuck ever the Tories are more popular these days then they are in London thinking this proposal of moving the House of Lords is going to somehow help to reconnect folk with politics, actually rather then moving the House of Lords anywhere why not just scrap it because the fact the upper chamber of the UK parliament is unelected & thus is unaccountable to the electorate is partly why people feel disconnected from politics etc.

With a stroke of a pen I’d get rid of the House of Lords & replace it with an elected upper chamber, but I’d also have both the House of Commons & the Senate or (what other title would be given to a an upper chamber) elected by proportional representation because far too many people feel their vote is wasted. I live in one of the safest Tory seats in the country, it’s the kind of place if the Tory party put a tub of lard or a dead horse up as a their perspective parliamentary candidate it would win an absolute majority & so me voting Labour or Green Party is an absolutely wasted fucking vote. Why can’t we institute a multi-representative proportional representative system where if any party gets a certain percentage of the vote then they get a candidate elected as a Member of Parliament & so one party would still get more MPs elected for that constituency but those who voted for other parties won’t feel as disconnected or disenfranchised because the party they’ve voted for is likely to have had some MPs elected to represent them in that constituency & overall one party will still likely have an overall majority in parliament.

Considering most people probably do think two politicians at the bottom of the ocean is a good start, I know it sounds crazy to be proposing there being more elected representatives, but more elected representatives means parliament would be more representative of society, yes it would possibly mean the far-right having a louder voice in parliament but I kind of think that might force the government to address the root causes as why people vote for fringe far-right parties.

The Tories proposing to move the House of Lords up north might be bullshit but what isn’t bullshit is the Tories proposing to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600 thus making the House of Commons less representative, this has been a Tory proposal since prior to the 2015 General Election as gerrymandering constituencies in this manner would give the Tories a vast electoral advantage & now the Tories do have a parliamentary majority they might very well move ahead with gerrymandering constituency boundaries to their advantage, as the old political adage goes those in government will reward friends & punish enemies.

Some have suggested that rather then the Tories moving the House of Lords to York, they should devolve power to the regions as a means of reconnecting people with politics, the Tories always talk a good talk about ‘devolving power’ but when in government never seem to do so because they don’t like it when Labour start sweeping to power in local council & assembly elections. There was in fact a referendum back in 2004 on a proposed devolved assembly in the North East of England & that proposal was rejected, so I’m not sure how popular the idea of devolved assemblies within England are but I do think the idea of English Parliament on par with the Scottish Parliament & Welsh & Northern Ireland assemblies is more popular, weirdly it’s usually the far-right who bitch that if the Scots & Welsh have their own parliaments then why can’t the English but I think it makes sense for all the nations which make up the UK to have their own parliaments & then the Westminster parliament be the federal parliament, so rather then moving the House of Lords to York you could establish an English parliament in York as a means of reconnecting people with politics.

Festival Of Gammon Stupidity

It appears to have become a really big deal for gammon that Big Ben chimes at 23:00 GMT on 31 January, the very moment UK is due to leave the EU, in fact there was a proposed amendment in the House of Commons to the Tory government’s Brexit Bill that would have required Big Ben to have chimed on the moment the UK leaves the EU, only problem is the tower which houses Bog Ben has been undergoing a long-term refurbishment, but now Boris Johnson has suggested there might be a “bung a bob for a Big Ben bong” crowdfunding campaign to raise the necessary funds to have Big Ben chime to mark Brexit & considering there are enough gullible gammon to fund king of the racist gammon Tommy Robinson living a life of luxury then there’s enough gullible gammon to fund a clock chiming to mark their Brexit precious Brexit.

It’s been announced that Boris Johnson’s government will be spending £120million on a ‘Festival of Brexit’, yeah because apparently there isn’t anything more worthwhile for this Tory government to be spending £120million on you know stuff like tackling homelessness & child poverty, okay £120million is in fact a drop in the ocean when it comes to government spending however the Tories are always banging on about saving taxpayers money then why not cut cost & just have a ‘Festival of Brexit’ at the local Wetherspoons pub that way the government will save money for taxpayers & travel expenses for racist gammon who’ll most likely attend as they won’t have to go anywhere.

Clive Lewis might have dropped out of the Labour leadership contest, but he was right when saying Brexit was a racist project from the start & we all know any ‘celebration of Brexit’ will just be a bunch of racist gammon getting drunk & abusive about Muslims & immigrants & anybody else they don’t like the look of.

I heard Nigel Farage was planning a big Brexit celebration in London on January 31s which actually surprised me because I thought he would be trying to prolong his political career & the limelight his ego so obviously craves by going about claiming even after the UK officially leaves the EU that Brexit truly hasn’t happened, well I guess he’ll be back at the next General Election with the Adam & Eve Not Adam & Steve’ party wanting to turn England into fucking Gilead now its out of the EU or what the fuck ever other strain of far-right hate he can tap into & exploit for his own ends.

If Farage is going to hold some kind of big Brexit celebration in Parliament or Trafalgar Square which no doubt will be attended in the main by racist gammon wanking themselves silly about giving the finger to Johnny Foreigner & keeping imperial measurements despite them all being clueless has to how many ounces are in a pound etc, well I’d just fucking love it if that was the day Extinction Rebellion held yet more protests in London as a reminder there are more important issues then fucking Brexit or if a load of militant remainers turned up to gate-crash just to spoil Farage’s Brexit bash for gammon,

Some of us will definitely not be celebrating Brexit, yeah I really want to celebrate this country being substantially poorer & stuff in the shops costs a whole heap more, it will be gammon who’ll be most affected by the economic consequences of Brexit & so it is pretty fucking extraordinary gammon celebrating Brexit they’re really celebrating being further economically fucked!

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.

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.

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

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

Your truly with Alys the love of my life

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

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

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

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

Lemmy the world is duller place without him

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

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

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

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

Me with Jeremy Corbyn back in 2015

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

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

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

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

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

Queen drummer Roger Taylor has been awarded an OBE in the 2020 New Year honours, is that for services in supporting the Apartheid regime in South Africa during the 1980s, yeah the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody kind of swept under the carpet that the band broke the cultural boycott there was against the then uber racist Apartheid regime in South Africa when they were paid a shit ton of cash to play the Sun City resort which was the South African equivalent to Las Vegas but you know just for White people. I’ll give Roger Taylor some credit as he has admitted Queen played Sun City during the Apartheid era because the band were offered a shit loads of cash to do so & he does regret having done so, but Queen’s guitarist Brian May still to this day defends the band having done so despite now posing as some born again animal rights lefty who has said nice things about Jeremy Corbyn, err has somebody pointed out to Brian that Jeremy was arrested protesting Apartheid whilst he & Roger & Freddie & the other one happily took the Apartheid regime’s blood money, by the way along with Jeremy Corbyn a teenage me also campaigned against the utter racial injustice which was Apartheid. Some people now consider the Apartheid era in South Africa as ‘ancient history’ & so I’m often asked why I still bollock on about it, well Apartheid in South Africa was my political awakening, it’s what turned me into a lifelong political activist, plus it’s not ‘ancient history’ it still has relevance today just look at the Israeli government’s treatment of the Palestinian people.

I’d not be surprised if somebody unearths evidence photographic or otherwise that Boris Johnson attended back in the 1980s the Springbok Club which was the Tory pro-Apartheid group along with disgraced former Tory MP Neil Hamilton & Thomas Meir the far-right terrorist who assassinated Labour MP Jo Cox, hey I’d not be surprised if Iain Duncan Smith was also an attendee at far-right pro-Apartheid meetings back in the day.

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

Ah but of course what’s caught the headlines regards the 2020 New Year honours is the knighthood being awarded to Iain Duncan Smith, though the mainstream media are generally spinning it as former Tory party leader being awarded a knighthood not the man who as DWP secretary has been responsible for murdering tens of thousands of disabled people. Iain Duncan Shit should be in prison for crimes against humanity not be given a knighthood, because yes crimes against humanity, fucking genocide, is what you call you it when you set about murdering over 100,000 disabled people, fuck me if you going to knight an evil Tory cunt like Iain Duncan Shit who’s guilty of fucking genocide why not give fucking knighthoods to Hitler, Stalin & fucking Pol Pot!

I realise Iain Duncan Smith is getting a knighthood for having managed Boris Johnson’s Tory leadership campaign, but however anybody tries to spin it it’s still insulting as fuck to disabled people, well hey 2020s might be a different decade but it will still be the same old Tory genocide against disabled people.

One question I have is if Boris is giving Iain Duncan Smith a knighthood for helping him be elected Tory leader in the 2020 New Year honours then why hasn’t Laura Kuenssberg not been made a dame or given some other bullshit honour as she along the BBC helped Boris in winning GE2019 with a thumping parliamentary majority? I can’t think of anybody more fitting then Laura Kuenssberg to get a gong from the palace for services to the Tory Party because BBC Chief Political Editor nah bollocks she is the BBC Chief Tory propagandist mouthpiece.

Here’s Some Tory Hypocrisy This Festive Hols

I ended up spending Christmas with a trans friend who lives the other side of Surrey, so I actually had a far better Christmas then I was expecting, in fact it was an intensely restful Christmas I had & thus a thoroughly lovely Christmas I had, though I could have done without one of friend’s housemate’s hyperactive dogs one of whom introduced themselves to me by licking my face at 4am in the morning when I was trying to sleep.

Yep I was fortunate enough to have had a lovely Christmas with a true friend, vegging out in front of the television watching season 1 of the X Files (people forget what an awesome series the X Files once was). It might not sound terribly festive to some watching old episodes of the X Files whilst scoffing yourself silly on sugary treats, oh for fucks sake it’s a far more a tradition of a modern British Christmas then fairies on top of Christmas trees & going the midnight mass to veg out in front of the television half comatosed from all the food & drink you’ve consumed, oh but of course your meant to veg out in front of television watching the Queen’s Speech then the Gavin & Stacey Christmas special. Oh dear I didn’t watch the Queen’s Speech nor did I watch Gavin Stacey, so what makes me far more unpatriotic not having watched the Queen’s Speech or the Gavin & Stacey Christmas special?

I’ve not watched a single episode of Gavin & Stacey nor am I planning on ever watching a single episode anytime soon or even in the far off future, though I have spent Christmases in households where I was literally forced to watch the Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day, my grandmother was Jewish so really didn’t do Christmas but if you were round her house come Christmas Day afternoon you had to watch the Queen lecture one & all about how we all should be living our lives. Am I the only one who objects being lectured about how I ought to be living my life by somebody who’s uber fucking wealthy & overprivileged on the count she happened to be born with the correct silver spoon shoved up her muff?

Queen Lizzy in 2018 lecturing us all about poverty whilst the billionaire sat in front of gold piano

I’d imagine whatever Lizzy lectured the nation about this Christmas was not dissimilar to bullshit she was lecturing the nation about last year, yeah remember last year when we had billionaire Lizzy sitting in front of a gold piano lecturing all about poverty, yeah because Lizzy knows an awful lot about poverty bouncing about in golden horse drawn carriages & living in palaces of splendour, nah I don’t somehow ever expect to see Lizzy skimping for pennies anytime soon, nor do I ever expect to see her come Christmas time handing out food parcels at the local food bank or helping out the local homeless shelter.

Jeremy Corbyn

Maybe we ought to listen to a Christmas message about poverty & homelessness from somebody who actually knows something about how the other half live, you know somebody like Jeremy Corbyn. Remember how during the recent GE2019 campaign the Tory press went ape shit in calling Jeremy Corbyn traitorous when it was revealed he doesn’t watch the Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day afternoon, well the reason he doesn’t is because he’s been more often than not been busy volunteering at his local homeless shelter.

I personally would have preferred to had a Prime Minister who helped feed the homeless Christmas Day then fuck off to sun themselves in the Caribbean, yes whilst Jeremy Corbyn was busy volunteering at his local homeless shelter this festive season, Boris Johnson is jetting off the private luxurious Carribean island of Mustique. So let me get this straight, the self-described ‘people’s Prime Minister’ of the self-described ‘people’s government’ is jetting off to a place which 99.9% of people will never be able to afford to go, yeah that’s on par with billionaire Lizzy sitting in front of gold piano lecturing all about poverty when it comes to egregiously sickening hypocrisy of the Tory establishment.

Have Yourself A Very Tory Christmas

This is my final article until after Christmas as even a hardcore political animal such as myself occasionally needs a few days off to kick back & chill, play some videogames & smoke some weed & pig out on all my favourite Christmassy foods, well all that would most definitely make a not-so-bad Christmas for me personally but due to circumstance I’m actually not going to be having much of a Christmas this year, in fact those confided at her majesty’s pleasure will likely be scoffing down a more luxurious Christmas dinner then me, her actual majesty will of course definitely be having a far more luxurious dinner then me.

I see Lizzy & co have been photographed making Christmas puddings for charity, yeah as if Queen Lizzy was helping to make puddings for real, if you think this is more than anything then a staged photo op you’ll fucking believe anything, she’s waited on hand & foot by a legion of servants, there literally is a position in the royal household dedicated to wiping the monarch’s arse, it’s official title is Groom Of The Stool. Oh & what gift has Lizzy gotten members of royal household this Christmas, a Tesco’s voucher worth a stonking £6, geez how fucking generous of her NOT! Yeah while Lizzy enjoys a slap up luxurious multiple course Christmas dinner those serving it up to her will have a gift voucher worth enough for them to buy a few cans of baked beans & fucking Cornetto for pudding if they’re lucky, oh yeah wonder if members of the royal household will receive their whopping £6 Tesco’s gift voucher in one of those Tesco’s greeting cards which have been manufactured in a Chinese prison camp.

I kind of find it beyond ironic that if anybody on Benefits Street treated themselves to a half decent Christmas dinner there’d be a fucking outcry from the likes of Katie Hopkins & the Daily Mail, yet the very same Tory cunts like the Daily Mail & Katie Hopkins would be bitching if Queen Lizzy & family weren’t served up a luxurious Christmas dinner on a silver fucking platter despite fact the family Windsor are the nation’s biggest welfare spongers.

I might not be having the greatest time of it what with currently having a seriously fucked up knee & there being ongoing family issues, however I’m personally thankful to be fortunate enough to have a roof over my head this Christmas because there are many people in this country who aren’t as fortunate. Now the Tories have a thumping majority in parliament I suspect there will be with Christmases to come an ever-increasing number of people who’ll be penniless & homeless. The Tories truly are the enemies of all that should be good about the festive season, not just preventing people from getting the maximum amount of joy from Christmas, they’re literally preventing people getting any joy from Christmas what-so-fucking-ever, but I’m sure the Tories will always ensure Queen Lizzy gets her slap up Christmas dinner & the groom of the stool is employed afterwards to wipe her arse.

Is ‘The War On Christmas’ Only A Thing When There’s A Labour Government

I’ve noticed over the past month that my local town centre hasn’t seemed nearly as Christmassy with decorations etc as it did 15 or 20 years ago, which has me wondering if the supposed ‘war on Christmas’ is only a thing which the likes of the Daily Mail & far-right trolls rant about when there’s a liberally minded Labour government & not when there’s a hard-right Tory government? Labour were in government 15 or so years ago & my town centre along with no doubt many town centres were far more festively decorative then they have been over the past couple of years, I remember back then the local shopping mall would be decked out in holly & tinsel & fairy lights & whatever other Christmassy decorations come the day after Halloween, yet the Daily Mail & other Tory entities would endlessly bitch about there being a supposed ‘war on Christmas’ something of which I’ve not heard nearly as much about in recent years when the Tories have been in government.

There have been complaints about the Christmas tree in the centre of Trafalgar Square looking a bit ‘sparse’ & ‘anaemic’ regards its foliage, including from the vilest of vile hatemongering gobshite trolls Katie Hopkins who used ‘Britain’s most famous Christmas tree’ not looking the healthiest of Christmas trees which the Norwegians have sent us, to have an Islamophobic swipe at London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Of course Katie Hopkins will have you believe the reason why local councils haven’t gone as full hog as maybe they use to in regards to Christmassy decorations in towns centres & whatever else is because of the ‘Islamification’ of Britain, when in fact the real reason is due to Tory austerity meaning local councils being short of funds etc.

I bet in response to me writing all this I’ll have some gammon who thinks they’re a smartarse asking why the fuck should I care about Christmas decorations because aren’t I supposed to be Jewish, well I guess it’s unlikely any gammon would have heard the joke about the rabbi & the Hanukkah bush. As its goes I’m not an observant Jew, in fact I’m an atheist, this always confuses the fuck out of gammon not understanding that what qualifies you as a Jew isn’t eating kosher & regularly attending your local synagogue, but simply if your mother was a Jew then you are a Jew & it just so happens my mother was Jewish. Even if I was an observant Jew what’s wrong with liking Christmas décor, anyways what religious significance is there with the contemporary Christmas the vast majority of people celebrate? Saw no mention of trees decorated with tinsel & baubles & fairy lights in any bible verse I’ve ever read nor any mention of roast turkey & plum pudding, nor any mention that it was to be traditional to veg out half comatose on the living room sofa come 4pm on Christmas Day due over consumption, yeah you really seriously going to tell me Christmas has any religious significance to gammon?!?!

Christmas obviously does have significance for practicing Christians, who some of the more devout will whinge no matter what about there being a ‘war on Christmas’ which is code for them not being able to impose how they reckon people ought to be celebrating Christmas on all others. Far-right Tommy Robinson supporting gammon & Christian fundamentalists always love to claim this country is Christian nation & this is the only time Christmas does have any religious significance for gammon as it’s a means to be bigoted fucks towards Muslims, yeah well I got news for gammon that its Paganism which is the indigenous religion of the British Isles not Christianity & in fact much of what we now associate with Christmas comes from it originally being the Pagan festival of Yule.

Though the Tory press might not bleat on as much as about there being a ‘war on Christmas’ as they once did when there was a Labour government, ironically it’s due to the economic policies of the current Tory government which is preventing many people from enjoying Christmas in the manner they’d want to, it’s the Tories who are preventing people from getting a great deal enjoyment from Christmas, it’s in fact the Tories who are the enemy of Christmas not Labour.

JK Rowling Comes Out As A Transphobic Bigot

So yesterday Harry Potter author JK Rowling finally came out publicly as a transphobic bigot in a tweet defending Maya Forstater who lost an employment tribunal which she brought against her former employers after they had sacked her for having expressed on social-media out & out transphobic opinions.

JK Rowling

Considering Maya Forstater had worked as researcher for the Centre for Global Development an International thinktank that campaigns against poverty & inequality, me thinks its more then appropriate she had her arse fired, doesn’t seem in keeping with the ethos of campaigning against inequality to be having a gobshite TERF bigot working for you.

There have supposedly been hints in stuff Rowling has said in the past that she might be something of a transphobic bigot, certainly amongst the trans community there was a strong suspicion Rowling was secretly a TERF & though no surprise to me nor any other trans person that indeed Rowling is a bigoted transphobic gobshite, I’m still angry about her transphobic protestations on Twitter, in fact I’m fucking angry as fuck with her spouting transphobic Bullshit in defence of an out & out TERF because she is world’s bestselling living author & being so she has the kind of stature in the bullshit she spouts which is just going to feed ammo to those transphobic bigots who would gladly see me as well as every other trans person wiped from existence.

As well as world’s bestselling living author, she’s supposedly meant to be somebody who’s politically left of centre or centre-left & has in the past been a major financial donor to the Labour Party, yeah well as a trans woman who’s politics are most definitely on the left of the political spectrum, I’d not say you’re any kind of political lefty or liberally minded individual when you go about defending exclusionary or discriminatory attitudes towards trans people & espousing trans people shouldn’t have equal rights on par with cis people, if Rowling had defended somebody who’d said that Black people weren’t real people or not shouldn’t have equal rights on par to White people she’d rightly be accused of being a racist well that’s essentially the equivalent here to what she’s has been defending.

I’ll admit this is not the first time I’ve been grinding my teeth in recent years when it comes to Rowling, because a while back she along with other Labour supporting wealthy celebrities such as Ross Kemp & Mick Hucknall were funding the establishment of various groups within the Labour Party with the primary objective to undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, yeah that’s worked out well hasn’t it err not, geez thanks Rowling you Blairite cunt! I’m now wondering if JK will now be supporting Jess Philips bid to be elected Labour leader now Jeremy Corbyn is on his way out, of course that it is if Jess Philips isn’t just dropping hints she’ll throw her hat in the ring & actually follows through & this isn’t just her usual publicity whore antics in just spouting bullshit to get headlines, anyways the reason I thought Rowling might back Jess isn’t just that Jess is on the right of the party but she’s also transphobic as fuck having said bullshit in support of Women’s Place UK which is a vicious transphobic hate group.

The transphobic shite espoused by JK Rowling couldn’t have come at a worse time, a hard-right Tory government led by Boris Johnson has just been elected with a whopping parliamentary majority, we all know Boris’s record when it comes to bellowing homophobic rhetoric but there are other Tory MPs who’ve voiced bigoted rhetoric far worse against the LGBTQ community, no longer is it about the LGBTQ community gaining greater rights now we are going to have to defend tooth & nail the rights we have. Trans people in particular are already the most marginalised group within the LGBTQ community & will likely bear the brunt of any anti LGBTQ shitstorm fermented by the Tory fringes, but if not the Tory fringes helping to further persecute & marginalise trans people then there’s always the likes of JK Rowling doing so.
