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....

This is straight up hilarious!

Man has to make his money, and try and fix the last decade at the same time

'The lachrymose self-pity of suburban curtain-twitchers'


Really interesting piece @ the link on Post Brexit Britain and the shit hole in which we now reside cause we are ruled by racist morality and ethic free English nationalists.

Does the religious freedom law only apply to Christians? Because of course it does...

I think we all know the answer to this... but it would be great to see this tested. Indeedy

'state-sponsored trafficking'- Peers will fight UK government's awful Rwanda plans, says Lord Dubbs

Ministers will face a fierce battle in parliament over plans to force some asylum seekers to be relocated to Rwanda, a Labour peer and former child refugee has vowed.

Alf Dubs, who was brought to Britain from Czechoslovakia on one of the Kindertransport trains in 1939, told the Guardian that the government was trying to “ride roughshod” over international agreements designed to help those seeking sanctuary.
“I think it’s a way of getting rid of people the government doesn’t want, dumping them in a distant African country, and they’ll have no chance of getting out of there again,” he said.

“I think it’s a breach of the 1951 Geneva conventions on refugees. You can’t just shunt them around like unwanted people.”
Asked if the resettlement scheme was ever likely to get off the ground, given the threat of judicial reviews and other court action, Dubs said: “I think it’s unlikely. As soon as they try and remove one person, I’m sure there’ll be a legal challenge, and I’m not sure the government will win it.


Part of me wants to believe that this is all performative - racist red rag to the red wall Brexit crowd, but I don't think it is. The Conservative Party is truly this far right now. UKIP has taken over and they are really this horrid.
I have just finished listening to Any Questions from last night - if you get the chance have a listen on BBC Sounds - David Lammy was out of this world on this subject. They have literally no shame - they need to go.

Just wanted to say that a four day weekend is a bloody splendid thing

So a high level & close GOP staffer to @GOPChairwoman was just arrested for pedophilia and his messages show he promoted the rape of babies. Yet, the @GOPChairwoman and @GOP won’t even address it, condemn it, say it’s bad or anything. That’s the GOP. PedoCons.

Next level patriarchal hatred - they hate women and girls. Period. It is next level control from the far right. How any woman can vote for these Gilead under his eye theocratic extremists is something I will never understand.

Mark my words - they will be coming after birth control next. Now they are allowed to get away with this level of fuckery it is inevitable.

Civil Disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is Civil Obedience.

Never trust a grumpy old man!


It has been ever thus. You would think looking at a millennia of the patriarchy fucking it up on behalf of the rest of us would teach us a lesson... but no... it is exhausting.

Space Force is going to help trump overturn the 2020 election 🤔

Some interesting interviews from the rally today. Here’s Julie from Ohio. She thinks Space Force is going to help trump overturn the 2020 election.


So far from reality it burns. What can you do with that level of cult cray cray?

When I talk about the cult of Trump, I’m talking about a destructive authoritarian cult. This is defined by four overlapping components that I referred to as the BITE model of authoritarian control. The b of BITE stands for behavior control. Then the i is information control. Thought control is the t, and e is emotional control. My definition of an authoritarian cult is these four components are used to change the person into a mirror or a clone of the cult, that is dependent and obedient. As a mental health professional, we think of that as a dissociative disorder. Where the person’s real self is still there, it’s just suppressed. This new identity has taken over, and thought-stopping mechanisms and phobias are installed in the cult identity to keep it in control.

Emphasis mine

MAGA needs deprogramming in a very significant way.

Patriarchy is about making almost everyone expendable.
