That’s just how I feel most of the time at the mo.
A round up of yesterday and some of today’s toings and froings. A lighter note to end the evening was we saw Trump the Musical at Alphabetti, five live wires from Blowfish theatre in an incredibly energetic performance that pretty much took you to all the places you’d, well, no longer think implausible these days in terms of the relationships vice, and averice of Trump, Farage, Putin, Kim Jong un and the MLE (Metropolitan Liberal Elite – nah, no escape, can’t be partisan). It reminded me of the satire about Hitler in the series Christabel
Otherwise, R is unwell and is going to cost a bomb in vet’s fees. I was asked to take a seat but refused in a passive-aggressive stand-off with one of the vets as she was leaving, I think I was freaking htem all out, but not intending to. Maybe I had more of an impact on the phone the other day than I thought. Good.
I have served the UK as a British Army wife for decades, but the treatment of EU nationals has changed my view of this country
No one knows who is paying for millions of Facebook ads demanding ‘no deal’ Brexit
As David Lammy has said, as Jessica Simor has said, as everyone has said.
Absolutely, tell us about it.
Idiot smirks as the risk to the Good Friday Agreement is laid bare.
Arch-bastard makes his threat.
Allies and lackies of arch-bastard out in full piss-taking force … Look at this arsehole hijack one of the most significant and historic feats by the working class movement. The men of Jarrow marched 100s of miles in protest at the lack of jobs, at their poverty, and took their grievances by foot to London where the powers-that-be, the landowners, the factory owners, the capitalists, were all holed up. Now these far-right plutocrats seek to reclaim that as their own, using Sunderland as the starting point. Sunderland that stands to lose so much from Brexit when Nissan leaves. And it will. And they’re all in this post – Farage, Darren Crimes, Tice, those scumbags from Turning Point.
This is what grassroots heroism is, from a real Mackem.
This is what we’re up against – or how the MSM likes to portray it.
This is what we’re up against in terms of competence (BTW I was wrong hahahaha about the Costa amendment, it was dropped as it was adopted without need for a vote by the House – in surely what is a rebuke of the intransigence, if not criminal enterprise of May’s crew in using them all as bargaining chips.
And back to where it all began, the fishermen, pawns in a neo-piscean fantasy dreamt up by bastards in London who bet daily more money on currency hedges than these guys contribute to the UK’s GDP in a year. I mean no disrespect to the latter at all, theirs is one tough job in every sense, but they’ve been used.
More lies and futile battles. On FB some bat was going on about how she remembered rations and the country survived the war, virtually isolated. I reminded her of the tens of thousands who died in the Atlantic convoys making sure this country didn’t fucking starve because we were reliant on imported food, even then, with way more land being farmed, and a population two-thirds the size it is now. She carped about her allotment et al – who even has land to grow food here, in the inner cities, let alone the skills to do so?
