The General Election

It's just under a week away and I really don't know who to vote for.

If it wasn't difficult enough last time round it's even harder now (fnar).

Boris just looks a bit crazy and do we really want to carry on with the way the Tories have been for the last few years? (I'm not counting all 9 since the 2010 election was a Con-Lib Dem coalition)

Can Labour really deliver everything they say they will and where on earth will the money come from?

I mean, Jezza says we'll all have free fibre broadband by 2030, but that's assuming Labour are in more than 1 term.  And I doubt very much BT are going to be happy to give up their infrastructure without a fight.

And what of those who already have fibre via Virgin Media or other provider?  Will we get the cost of the broadband paid for by the government?

And with Labour comes Diane Abacus (she's just there to make up the numbers) and the very dodgy John McDonnell.  No thanks!

The Lib Dems are the only ones who say they will stop Brexit but they won't get a majority.  Jo Swinson's been shown to be a bit of a Belinda Bullshitter too.  

I don't want a tactical vote like the Greens or something similar as we'll still end up with a Tory government.  I've spoken before about being politically homeless, right now I'm this guy:

Religion - Huh! What is it good for?

Another item to "Re-ee-form"

 

 And finally...

The utter Bell Ends at Extinction Rebellion are at it again.

A valid point is made in the narrative.  Then what follows is a short video of a bunch of bed wetting, bad minges laying on the floor.

Yeah!  That'll learn us all and stop us from buying things all the time!

Nothing says "Help us save the planet" more than annoying people by deliberately obstructing places.  Yep, that's really going to get me on side.

Now, if you REALLY want people to take note and help maybe go and do something about it.

None of these kind of people actually go and pick up plastic waste such as bottles from beaches and take them a place for recycling.  They are professional "protestors", and I use that term very loosely.

Why aren't they leading by example?  More people will get involved and support them if they have a plan which doesn't involve lying around on the floor.  The only thing they're saving is their own shoe leather.

Dicks.

 

So there's going to be yet another General Election and you know what?  I still genuinely feel politically homeless.

I just don't know who I am going to vote for!  I mean, I could pay close attention to all the Facebook posts by people who claim to know politics yet have never worked a day in their lives.

Or the posts that just slate the Tories no matter what, those who say "If you vote Tory please unfriend me" like the sniveling children they are.

Or the posts that are not fact checked and just make stuff up or worse, make claims that end up being about 4 years old!

I've been enjoying the posts on Twitter where people claim that over 60s shouldn't be allowed to vote.  Weird that, is that because they're possibly voting for something you're not?

Well, they've earned the right to vote.  If that's the case then, anyone under 50 shouldn't be allowed to vote.

And neither should black people, scousers or those who earn less than £65k a year.

Oh, I see, that doesn't work for you does it not? Right, we'll leave it as is it for now eh, sunshine?

Thought so.

Meanwhile, in Didn't Happen Land, @hollyarigby on Twitter says:
"Told some Year 8s theres going to be an election. Their chat has restored all my faith"

Of course you did, Holly.  Now, I've got a daughter who is in Year 8 and absolutely no way would her reply be anything like this.

But check this, Holly is....

AN ENGLISH TEACHER AND A CORBYNISTA.

Ahhh that explains everything.  Trying to brain wash kids.  Clearly not a very good English teacher either when she's missed the apostrophe off "there's".

These people are unreal.

 

Bonfire Night is bad for the environment

Says Gret Bigg-Turdberg.

 

And finally...

Gogglebox is shite

 

 

 

Does anyone know just what the actual fuck is going on with Brexit?  It seems to be very much like the TV series Lost in that I followed it quite cohesively for the first 2 seasons then midway through season 3 everything just went out the window and I had no idea what was going on.

No doubt there will be another 2 years of randomness before we all wake up and realise it was all a dream.

Oh, spoiler alert.

 

Extinction Rebellion are a bunch of bell ends

It's true

And finally...

Gret Bigg-Turdberg is back telling us why Halloween is damaging to the environment

 

We're almost at THAT date.

The end of October, where everything is just hideous and so damned scary!  We have to simply stop it!

Nobody knows what really is going to happen, we'll have to just wait and see.

No, I'm not talking about Brexit, you nonce, I'm talking about Halloween!

You see, I hate it.  It's pointless and every year I have a moan about it.

Why?  Well, it pisses me off!  I've already seen places decorated for it, it's the first week in October, Halloween is the last day of the month!

 

Mate, we're Thomas Cooked

Fomer employees of Thomas Cook took to demonstrating at parliament the other day to complain that the Goverment didn't rescue the firm.

Sorry, what?  Why on earth would it be the responsibility of the Government to rescue every firm that goes bust?  Thomas Cook has been struggling for a long time, this isn't a new thing.  But why should taxpayers money be used to bail them out?  Simply put, it shouldn't.

If every firm that was badly run had the safety net that they'd be bailed out if they went tits up the high streets would be full of nationalised pop-up waffle shops and dodgy mobile phone shops.  I have every respect for people starting businesses, I know how hard it is to run small businesses.  How some of these cafes keep afloat when there's a Starbucks, Caffe Nero and Costa every 5 metres is anyones guess, but starting a business is a risk.

I don't think the Government needs a travel firm on it's books to be honest.  Some of those Thomas Cook staff members were angry because the banks were bailed out back in the late 2000's, but that's not really comparing apples with apples is it?  Having banks collapse is a damn sight worse than a travel firm disappearing!

Mind you, what's worse are those claiming their holidays were ruined!  Yes, it's a bit shit but you'll get a refund, those 9000 staff members being laid off have it worse.

But never you mind that, you just think of yourselves yeah?

 

Stop bullying 16 year old girls

Greta Thunberg is the new God

 

Rag Watch

We've not had one for ages so here's a new one!

 

And finally...

We've a new writer joined the team, please meet our Environmental Activist, Gret Bigg-Turdberg.

She'll be telling us how great she is and why we're so bad.

Here's her first article, enjoy!

 

 

I saw an article on the BBC site the other day that said homophobic attacks are up yet the number of people being charged is declining.  Now, on first glance it makes it sound like the Police are willy-nilly allowing people to attack gay people.

However, having read about 2 events quite recently that actually makes me think, "Are these people actually making this up?"

Now, bear with, let me take you through these 2 cases:

Case 1 - Two Lesbian ladies were "attacked" by a "gang of youths" because they wouldn't publicly kiss each other in public.

You may have read about it at the time?  There was something not quite right about it though.  Why?  Because I think the UK is incredibly tolerant of gay people.  We're not Russian or radical muslims like ISIS.

Gay people ARE more than tolerated, they're inclusive of society.  I know several gay people and not one of them feel like they have to keep schtum about it, they're totally out the closet, nobody actually cares they're gay.

So I found it odd that a gang of boys / teens would actually beat up 2 women.  The fact it's 2 women makes it even more unbelievable.

But there's more.  Nobody was arrested for it, the women couldn't say how many people were supposed to be in this gang nor could they describe ANY of them.

Now, it's clear that they'd both suffered injuries - I think it's more likely that they had an argument and a fight then decided to blame someone else for it, claiming homophobia.

 

Case 2 - Owen Fucking Jones

Claims he was attacked after coming out of a pub, he went on to claim that it was a planned homophobic attack.  Again, he couldn't describe the supposed assailant and nobody has had their collar felt let alone arrested and charged.

 

Stop making shit up!  You're making it worse for those who do genuinely need help.

 

Trantastic!

The murky world of Trans.

 

And finally...

Back to the 70's - Great times, bro.
