About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Actually . . .


She deserves the internet win of the town halls... LOL

UK DUers watch all of this

Cause this is entirely where we are

Sooooo it looks like I have a job!!!!!!

Only three days a week for now which is perfect as I ease myself back into work. 3 months to build a strategy they need and if I do shit right, which of course I will, full time job at the end of it. This is perfect, breaking in after a year out, and this is my area of expertise so I fully expect to kick splendid arse. I have a zoom at 0830 tomorrow to finesse the details. The only thing is they came in slightly under my salary offer, so I will suggest that they get me at that price for three months only, after that I expect my full offer. After all I went in 20k down on my usual, which I expect to be back at in 12 months - because when I have my game on I am really worth it. They are lucky to get me. Cheap at half the price as they say. She says modestly.

Of course since nothing is settled until January I will still seek other opportunities, but I am excited.

Not walking in front of a bus does not save your life it simply postpones your death

Taking heart medication if you have a dicky heart does not save your life it postpones your death.
Wearing arm bands if you cannot swim does not save your life it postpones your death.

Everything we do every single day is about risk management and care to postpone our deaths for as long as possible. Alison Pearson is a right wing shill who does not care that a further lockdown could save the lives of up to 100K citizens. They are going to die an some point anyway, right? So why not let the die now and get it over. Hideous from someone on their privileged perch who is economically secure enough to ride out this new right wing herd immunity bullying tactic. Let the poor die now so the rich can richer.

Trump should just be asked to explain/defend all his mad tweets and retweets.

At the next presidential debate, or next mainstream TV interview, Trump should just be asked to explain/defend all his mad tweets and retweets.
e.g. Do you believe Seal Team Six were killed but Bin Laden's still alive?
Do you believe you are the King of the Jews?

Nobody seems to pay attention to this stuff anymore but this is the president of the United States tweeting that Osama bin Laden was kept alive in Iran and moved to Pakistan for Obama to have a “trophy kill” (which is obviously false)

You can hear him now 'I’m not saying it but I know a lot of people are saying it so we will have to see, it might be wrong but it might be right'
Re tweeting the far right and Q has become the new normal. This madness has to end and America you need to do the world a solid and make sure safe guards are put into place to protect the rest of the world from ever having to go through the hell of a King Trump ever again.

Amy Coney Barrett ruled using the n-word does not make a work environment hostile


The Associated Press published a report on Ms Barrett's most notable judicial opinions, which included a 2019 workplace discrimination case in which she penned the opinion that the use of the n-word in the workplace had not "created a hostile or abusive working environment."

Ms Barrett wrote on behalf of a unanimous three-judge panel that issued the ruling.

In the ruling, Ms Barrett said that while she found the use of the word abhorrent, the plaintiff in the case had not made a strong enough case that harassment was occurring.


The most disturbing thing here is that there is zero acknowledgement that weaponizing that particular pejorative against people of colour is in and off itself one of the most hostile acts that a white person can commit. White religious privilege summed up in this judgement. And that she does not recognise the impact of racist language and that the use of it is always an attack, and the impact of it will always be hostile is horrifying. I think she knows. I think she does not care. Just like the rest of them.

Trump: Suburban women, will you please like me?

Trump at his rally last night: "So I ask you to do me a favour. Suburban women, will you please like me? Please. Please. I saved your damn neighbourhood, OK? The other thing: I don't have that much time to be that nice. You know, I can do it, but I gotta go quickly."

Suburban women: HELL NO

Trump is about to start attacking suburban women. It is a given. They have collectively turned their backs on his crude 1950’s assessment of who they are, and he is reduced to begging them to like him at his super spreader events. And as they undoubtedly overwhelming reject these pleas from a nasty, racist, misogynistic egomaniac he is minutes away from trying to win their support to going after them. You can tell that from his sarcastic and threatening undertone even as he pleaded for support. Trumps fundamental flaw, certainly when it comes to winning re-election, is that he cannot believe that people do not support him for anything other than nefarious purposes, so he turns them into the enemy. Blue States, BLM, Soldiers, you name it, he weaponizes demonising language when he either feels threatened by a particular demographic, or when he is polling really badly with them. Suburbs and Seniors are about to become his newest ‘enemies’ in his orange head of ego. I would bet on it.

Every choice that the Trump campaign is making at the moment is cringe making and really poor judgement. To quote Napoleon…Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Begging suburban women to like him or they may not like the consequences?!?! While at a super spreader event, in the time of an out of control pandemic. Yeah that will work👀 It is like watching a 3-week slow motion car crash. Good oh!

The current SCOTUS nominee belongs to a sect which...

*Bans large belt buckles because they apparently draw attention the crotch?!?!
*Bans perfume and cologne because it demonstrates that they are attempting to lure with pheromones. Oh My!
*Ban single women from any knickers other than plain white cotton ones. (do you think the old men who run this cult do regular checks? )
*Believe that both reproductive rights and homosexuality may be accepted by human law but are rejected by divine law. If you are gay you need to pray it away, and when that fails you need to commit to a chaste life. Because of course.
*Banned from dating unless they are ready to get married. Obvs no intimate relationships before nuptials.
*Women must obey their husbands in everything, and even if you are single you do not escape having a man tell you want to do as you get a nominated a ‘head’ until such time as you marry then lucky old you – at that point - husbands act as the 'head' for their wives. Because of course women are incapable of making their own decisions.
*Mental illnesses are demonic possession. (Based on this, with America's mental health well being under such strain because of this administration, maybe the whole Trump thing is actually a demonic possession of the nation. Do the world a solid and do an exorcism on Nov 3rd.)
*Until recently in all of the ironies female leaders were referred to as handmaids.

This is what the Republicans are trying to put on the highest court in the land. A member of a sect that dictates the details of your life to the extent of the size of your belt buckle… that expect women to submit in all things to the head of their household and determines when and whom a single person can date and marry. This is a sect that very obviously see straight, male, pale and stale as living in harmony with the ‘Lord’ and everything other than that has sin attached that needs to be managed within a very patriarchal construct. This is a woman who buys into all of this. Is a leader in this. Has grown up in and chosen to raise her daughters in this. This is the woman they are going to inflict on America for potentially the next 40 years. At this point they are showing the intent that theocracy with a false demi-God as titular head is the name of their game.

A perfect framing for the late stage abortion canard

All of this. And with that cray cray on SCOTUS, the women Pete is talking about here would be forced into full term forced births (in certain states), irrespective of the risk to her life, or with sure and certain medical advice that their baby will not survive beyond the womb or will have such severe disabilities that life expectancy or pain levels are unsustainable. No women wakes up in the thrid trimester and says 'I think I might pop out for an abortion today'.


The bad faith framing of this argument by the sycophantic, dissembling, misleading, double-crossing, misrepresenting, deceitful, mendacious, treacherous, two-faced, unethical, immoral and plain nasty enablers of the Democracy Destroyer in Chief, is going to hit them badly when you all do the world a solid on November 3rd.

Just sayin'
