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....

There is NOTHING better than unfettered capitalism 👀

https://twitter.com/JuliusGoat/status/1363114685579550723

As much as leftists hate to hear it, there are no systems better than unregulated capitalism, which is why Texans are getting $20,000 electricity bills but no electricity during a deadly freeze.


Sad thing is - they will be shocked and cold, thirsty and maybe dead, and going to go fund me to pay these ridiculous bills that deregulation and unfettered greed have wrought on them - and vote for the same people that did this to them again and again.

Welcome back...



The west is literally breathing a sign of relief

“We will keep the faith. An attack on one is an attack on all.”

Such a refreshing change from the last one who threatened to nuke us

It's all in the branding...



LOLOL there is truth here...

I wanted to take the higher ground. I really did.

I wanted to go on to posts and say if you can't say anything good maybe you should not say anything at all, but then I thought fuck that, what has that miserable pissant ever done to deserve one iota of compassion in death. This is who that wanker was...



This fucker did more to radicalise the ill educated and those without critical thinking skills over the last couple of decades than anyone else in the media landscape. He enabled the seditious fucker that squatted in the WH and tried to destroy America to be elected, not because of conviction but for ratings, drugs and blow jobs (I made that bit up but I am sure it is true!). His rotting, sordid, hate filled heart will rest in piss (I stole that from Arkansas Grannies post! - such a great turn of phrase), and the world is a better place without him.

Rush right now but without the moves...



You know what they say - you get what you vote for...

As described today when discussing the ridiculous nonsense about progressive liberal windmills being the cause of nightmare that millions of Texans are living through - rather than the free marketeers running amok



1 + 1 = 2



Apparently he has quit - but one has to ask who the hell would vote for that level of awful in the first place?!?!

Oy, pppssstt GOP, over here...



Losers have to behave like losers. Losers be losers.

Guiltier than a guilty mans guilty things



They sold their souls a long time ago. And while watching them talk out of both sides of their mouths on this is somewhat amusing as they demonstrate their duplicity in stark detail, the underlying problem remains. One of the main parties in America is rotten to the very core. It is fetid. It is ruinous. It is a dank deep dark hole of corruption and malice. As a collective they created, supported and enabled the hijacking of the GOP by white supremacist terrorists and insurrectionists. They stood back and stood by as fascists hijacked the debate on anything and everything. When the insurrectionists charged the capital, even as these slimy seditious senators cowered inside, they knew they owned the mob, that they had enabled them, pandered to them, supported them, supported the BIG LIE - risked the republic because they care for nought by power and control and white male supremacy. They are all as guilty as hell and they were never going to vote against Trump, to do so would be to vote against themselves - and how the hell would they explain that to those to who they have sold their souls...

Heh.



A Sunday morning ditty to get your progressive blood pumping...

This wins the interwebs!

Huzzah!!!! How tremendous. I feel like getting my dancing shoes on.

Trump revels in acquittal: Our movement 'has only just begun'

Donald Trump has released a statement celebrating the Senate vote to acquit him of incitement of insurrection.

“I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth,” the former president said.

“My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.”

Trump condemned the impeachment trial as “another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country,” even though seven Republican senators voted to convict him.

The former president also nodded at his political future now that he is free to run for the White House in 2024.

“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it,” Trump said.

They have further emboldened a cray cray narcissistic egomaniac to destroy democracy. They are shameless shit stains on the underbelly of humanity. And of course his reaction was totally predictable...

...the sheer weight of evidence we now have that the gov. has been lying to you for the last 5 yrs

James O'Brien reels off all the Brexit chaos - from the last two days.




"... it looks like the shellfish industry is about to wither on the vine because there's quite a strong case to be made for claiming Michael Gove didn't understand what he was signing."

"It's taken 42 days for Kate Hoey to move from coming close to claiming that anybody who didn't back Boris Johnson's oven ready deal was some sort of traitor to the UK cause - to claiming that the Northern Ireland protocol that was an intrinsic part of that oven ready deal, sort of, needs to be fixed immediately.

"Even this condescending, sneering public school boy Remoaner didn't think it'd start falling apart that quickly."

"Amsterdam has overtaken London as Europe's top share-trading hub.

"We've got £1 billion worth of Brexit red tape coming in for chemicals.

"The Northern Ireland protocol is falling apart at the seams - and it would appear Michael Gove's attempts to weaponise Ursula von de Leyen's flirtation with a terrible mistake one Friday afternoon in January has come back round to bite him on the backside."

"Half of exporters to the EU are having Brexit difficulties according to a new survey. That counts as good news, right? I would cast that as only half of UK exporters to the EU."

"We've got the Governor of the Bank of England warning that the deeply desired trade agreement on final services is currently looking rather sticky, stuck in the long grass.

"Another massive lorry park has been cleared in Dover, which of course was a very pro-Leave part of the country.

"Lord Frost has started whining about the relationship being more than bumpy since the deal he was patted on the back for signing."

"Small businesses are drowning in paperwork and facing higher costs.

"Food traders particularly in Scotland have warned that price rises and potential shortages.

"JD Sports talking about the loss of millions of pounds and the possibility of transferring warehouse distribution centres and therefore a large number of jobs to continental Europe."


It is absolutely criminal what these far right Empire throwback privileged wankers have done to this nation because of racism, xenophobia and nationalism. And the sad thing is that suckers that chose to believe that all we had to do is shut our borders and somehow their shitty little lives would improve splendidly if they could just get rid of their Polish neighbours, are the ones who are going to be hardest hit by this.

So much winning...
