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....

Proof positive that the cray cray have jumped the shark

I cannot stand Liz Cheney - as a progressive feminist she is the antipathy of everything I hold dear. Every single position she holds is position based on privilege and building power for powers sake. She stood for Trump and the awful fascistic administration he led for four years. That she is standing against the stealing of democracy now is good. That for once in her far right life she is speaking truth to the power that has turned the screws on her is good. And I agree with her. ’Remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar' she said with not one hint of irony. 'I will not participate in that,’ she said. And good, of course she shouldn't, no-one who believes in the American experiment, justice and democracy should amplify and support the big lie.

Herein lies the rub. Cheney is horrible in her policy positions. But we can all agree that what she said on the floor last night is absolutely spot on. No-one, seemingly, has the courage of her convictions to stand with her against the authoritarian theocratic male pale and stale far right Trump worshipping cult that sits at the heart of the new GOP. How can they possibly move back to a governing position that is representative of a wider cohort than the bat shit cray cray membership driving the ongoing embrace of the big lie when they cannot cope with Liz frigging Cheney trying to the grown up in the room?

Beyond doubt I am very sure that this is the one and only time I will agree with anything that comes out of her gob, but on this she is right. The fact that the far right Cheney faces the chop for standing up to the big lie bollocks... shark...jump... GOP.

I am no friend of Joe Walsh *shudder at the horror* but he is not wrong



When MSM give us the polls that the former guy has off the chart favourability polls in the GOP, of course he does, any normal conservative does not want to be part of the Confederacy Party, they love Capitalism to much to join that band wagon of authoritarian incompetence and fascist bollocks. 80% of 25% is the underbelly that started with the tea party and went full white supremacy under the former guy. Let them go kiss the ring. They need to be irrelevant.

I apologise in advance but the Emperor really has no clothes

Unfortunately and conversely, at the moment the populace really does seem to think he is fully dressed - while Boris knows he is stark bollock naked - and it is going to take more than a small boy in the crowd to disperse the mass delusion that Boris Johnson is in it for anyone but himself.

The Confederacy Treasonous Tyranny Party 2021 Edition

The Republican Party with the Nazi salute Hawley, the rapey wanker from Florida, the blonde and the brown QANON barbies, the Senator Cancun, the vote stealing BIG LIE fuckers across America are forever bound to the party of Trump – and they bask in it, cause they are now the party of white supremacist ethno nationalists. Supress the vote measures across 47 states shows us all who they are. They no longer support democracy, they are the Confederate Party. They love them some Jim Crow and based on some recent posts from GOP blah blahs, slaves had a really good time in the good old days.

The current sitting members of the Confederate Party have desecrated of their oath to defend the Constitution. Fascists they are. Trump and the cabal frantically tried to steal the election, but they are incompetent assholes and of course they failed. But they will try again. Of course they will. Cause fascist fuckers keep on trying. They have made it abundantly clear that they do not want democracy in America. Their entire focus is gerrymandering, voter suppression and intimidation, relying on the bias of the Electoral College, politicising the judiciary and disenfranchising disadvantaged communities by reducing any remaining confidence in the ballot box. As angry old white people get older (or die, a process sped by vax & mask refusal), they have few actual democratic options left. In their fascistic brains they must create a one-party state or die.

Why can’t they take the hint?

Fuck off Nazi Confederate Party – you are soooooo 18th Century.


So we are at war with France now? FFS this government is ridiculous.

Seriously? Seriously?

We send 2 navy 'warships' to Jersey in retaliation for some French hyperbole about turning off the power in Jersey if the French fisherman cannot fish in Jersey waters.

They send 2 gunboats to challenge our warships

French fisherman rams British boat.

All of this for fucking fish. FISH.

And the sad thing is this is working. This government sent fucking warships to Jersey to protect the fishing rights as a total and utter distraction to the devastation that Brexit has wrought on the fishing industries on our Islands. The lies they told about taking back control of our waters, not mentioning that it would take a decade and in the meantime fishermen trying to sell their produce into the EU have significant barriers to trade to the point that many are going under. But hey. Lets go to war with France.



We are learning that no lie is too big cause Brexit and the far right capture of the 'working class

take back control’ imagination.

The polls for Hartlepool prove it – where the lead for the Tories over Labour to win the seat seem unsurmountable, and Labour will lose yet another Red wall seat as the electorate opts to turn it into Brexit Blue seat.

(Explainer for our American friends. There are local elections taking place tomorrow across the UK for Councils and City Mayors - and national elections in Scotland. Alongside this, following the resignation of the current MP for Hartlepool – a Labour held seat since the seat was created, a by-election is being held and polls suggest that the Tories will take the seat in an historic first. By way of context Hartlepool is in the North East of England in a very deprived area where in the latest stats available 27.6% of kids live in poverty – and that is before the impact of the pandemic and Brexit borders are taken into account.)

Seemingly, the facts of the privileged shitshow that rules us do not matter one jot at this moment in history. After all…

- Let the bodies pile high in the streets.
- £200k on a 1970’s brothel décor with murky as fuck funding for it.
- One of the worst pandemic death rates in the world…
- Dodgy contracts to dodgy mates for 100’s of millions of quid
- In your face breaking of the Ministerial Code

And the list goes.

This SHOULD be toxic electorally, but Boris Bollocks and Brexit seem about to win the day, again. Is this really what we as a nation have become?

Of course, politics has always been somewhat about distraction and evasion. Of course it has. Most people don’t get into the game without a huge ego, a yearning for power and an unshakeable belief that their way is the right way. But this shady bunch of far-right English nationalists that have the current keys to the kingdom are something else entirely. They lie and dissemble every single day, and they are being allowed to get away with it with impunity – cause why? Brexit lies and bollocks trumps everything else. Hartlepool going Tory? You could not make it up.

TRMS: Let's re-examine that DOJ ruling since it's clear it was falsified



"Merrick Garland is the attorney general now, all new leadership at the Justice Department, all new priorities, moving forward with a million things at once, and here's a judge saying, you know, your immediate predecessor in this job lied to me, lied to the court and lied to the American public about something as freaking serious as why the former president was not charged with crimes. You cool with the evidence of all of that being released to the public? Because it's coming out in two weeks unless you want to appeal my ruling."

Someone is going to prison....



'Slaves loved their masters': GOP women's club president defends lawmaker's pro-slavery comments

In a post to Facebook on Sunday, Martha Huckabay -- a former delegate for Donald Trump -- lashed out at a CNN segment which criticized Louisiana state Rep. Ray Garofalo (R-LA), who said that children should learn "about everything dealing with slavery, the good, the bad, the ugly."

Huckabay took issue with GOP state Rep. Stephanie Hilferty after she criticized Garofalo.

"You are right Stephanie Hilferty 'none of us were around when slavery occurred,'" Huckabay wrote. "Slavery goes all they way back to biblical times, and if you've read your Bible, you would know that many of the slaves loved their masters, and their masters loved them, and took very good care of them, and their families."

She continued: "The question he should have pushed back her way was was their [sic] marriages in slavery? Were families and precious babies born (and I am talking about LIFE itself) into or out of slavery? Were slave owners ever known to be 'GOOD' to their slaves? Were slaves ever known to LOVE their masters?"

Huckabay went on to suggest "that some slaves never wanted to leave their plantation because it had become their home."

The GOP has been taken over by the white supremacy underbelly. They are at the point where they are happy to say the quiet horror out loud. I am sure that the women raped by slave owners, and the children born as a result and treated like stock to be bought and sold at will would be delighted to know that in the 21st Century privileged right wing racists Karens think they should have been thankful for their slave status.



How they think that this will resonate with the average American is beyond me? The GOP have gone beyond the pale - and every single one of them needs to own how they allowed this white ethno nationalist, supremacist nazi nasty has been allowed to take hold. How they get back to normal right wing shittiness is going to be hard - pre supposing they want to take the party back from the cult.
Maybe they don't, maybe they are very happy with the fascists taking over? Slavery is a good thing in this GOP... confederacy 101 in 2021.

When you meme yourself...



Hehe. White ethno nationalist racist wankers owns his nasty for once. What does racism look like asks one of the biggest racists in the room... self own 101 is a splendid thing!

Misinformation has always been part of their power play



Cartoon from nearly one hundred years ago sums up the bollocks from the far right today! No change there then. Surprise! When you rely on male, pale, stale, white nationalist patriarchal wing nuts to think for you, progress is never going to be a thing...
