I said I wouldn’t make any snide celebratory remarks when Boris Johnson tested positive for Covid-19. It got harder to stick to that when Matt Hancock did the same….

Dominic Cummings though?

Fucking hell adding Matt Hancock to the list of prominent Tories who have Coronavirus is making it really hard not to start celebrating just out of pure spite alone…

If this thing hits Michael Gove and/or Dominic Raab too I’m gonna have to bust out the confetti though.

I won’t be making any posts mocking Boris Johnson or celebrating that he’s tested positive for Coronavirus.

Because my mum always taught me that if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.

My golden rule of not discussing politics with my parents has now landed me in the odd position where my dad thinks I’m a diehard pro-Corbyn Labour supporter and my mum thinks I’m a staunch Tory supporter.

I live in a very safe Tory constituency.

I know a large chunk of my neighbours all clapping the NHS are lifelong Tory voters.

Those fucking arseholes.

I imagine it’s no coincidence that the same people who filled my Facebook feed with pro-Brexit bullshit are now flooding it with conspiracy theories about Coronavirus or just making memes about how they’re going to ignore the lockdown because they don’t like being told what to do.

Cause I do think booze is gonna be required to get through this eventually and it feels a shame to let it all sit there going to waste because a bunch of panicky idiots lack basic comprehension of reality.

Ugh.

Me getting into politics:

Me now:

So…. Keir Starmer then.

I mean it’s not the worst choice they could have made, and I’m genuinely surprised they didn’t go for the worst choice.

But we all know what’s going to happen now.

Momentum and the Corbyn crowd will spend the next however long ripping literally everything he does because he’s an evil “Blairite” thus helping to ensure that Labour continues to look as competent and organised as a burlap sack full of feral cats.

It’s exactly what would have happened if Long-Bailey had won, but with the roles reversed. It would have been the moderates screeching like Donald Sutherland at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and helping to ensure nothing gets done in that circumstance.
