Tessie Maybe is signing us up to ridiculous demands we can’t possibly meet without going bankrupt. She has ditched all pretence at Brexit and is salting the earth for her successor.
Well, she is setting up Boris to take the blame as a climate denier and general Nazi if he tries to roll back her insanities. If the Total and Utter Hunt becomes PM he’ll ignore it all and carry on fucking up Brexit where she left off. Do I trust Boris to deliver? About as far as I could comfortably spit a rat. But that’s more than I’d trust Hunt.
There is no actual government in the UK. No opposition. The Tories are shouting ‘Nyah, you hate Jews’ at Labour and Labour are shouting ‘Nyah, well you hate Muslims’ at the Tories. It’s like watching a kindergarten fight. Meanwhile, nothing is happening in Government beyond name-calling, race-baiting and smear and counter-smear. What do we need any of them for now? We could replace them with five year olds, pay them in lollipops, chicken nuggets, ice cream and comics and probably have a better and more effective government.
Brexit should have happened in March. They had over two years to sort it out and they didn’t fail, they didn’t screw up, they deliberately made it into a hell of a mess. Now we are told it will happen on Halloween. Does anyone still believe a single word any of our politicians say now? Forget ‘V’, I think we should all have Michael Myers masks for Halloween.
Oh sure, Boris says that if we don’t leave on October 31st it’s the end of the Tory party but that party’s end was secured the moment they put Tessie in charge. They’re doomed anyway. They’ll take the country down with them. Tessie is making sure of that.
Labour are about as Labour as the Tory party is Conservative. Not at all. Both parties have become total-control freaks with only the face at the front to show any difference between them.
There really is nobody to vote for now.
Brexit party? Farage has one policy. Leave the EU. He actually ditched UKIP when he thought he had done that and to be fair, every Brexit MEP took up their position with the intention of putting themselves out of a job. But… run the UK? I don’t think Farage would be a good Prime Monster (think diplomacy) and I don’t think he really wants the job.
I suspect that if the Brexit party got any kind of power in Wastemonster, they’d get us out of the EU and call a general election to let someone who knows how run the country.
The flaw in that plan is… we don’t have anyone left who knows how.
Our politicos have spent too long letting the EU run the show, collecting their salary plus expenses and rubber stamping every EU directive. They couldn’t be trusted to run a bath.
It’s no different in the USA. The Democrats’ only policy is ‘Get Trump’ and the Republicans don’t seem to say much at all.
You know, spending much of my life close to Balmedie where Trump has one of his many golf courses has not made me like him much. His staff are gits which makes me think he might well be one too.
But… he is the duly elected president of the USA and to see our politicians making childish tweets about ‘orange man bad’ and the silly Trump balloon does not make me proud. This is how infants debate. Trump is, I suspect, trying to do what he thinks is right. Can you say that about Saudi Arabia or any of the other despots who have been lauded on state visits to the UK? We saw no MPs bleating about how horibble they were. Not even Mugabe.
We have been treated to the spectacle of Trump being banned from Sheffield. Why in the name of all that is holy would anyone want to go to Sheffield? No visiting dignitary, ever, has gone there and most of the UK have never been there either.
I have. It’s not worth it.
You can ban me from Sheffield if you like. I won’t mind at all.
It’s all so damn childish now, it’s at the stage where primary school kids are wincing. Except the ones promised world travel and loads of money to be the face of the Latest Thing. They are loving it. Until they realise how they are used.
To coin a phrase… Winter is coming.
In more ways than one.
