Brexit negotiations be like…
Brexit negotiations be like…
This may sound like an oversimplification but if your government even has ‘Armageddon’ fears to play down over the primary reason it gives for its own existence, then you need to take a step back and think about what you’re doing and how badly you’re fucking it up.
Also a sidenote but if you can hear warnings that our nation will face shortages of food, fuel and medication because of Brexit but still think Brexit is totally working out and is totally worth it, you too need to take a big step back and reassess your priorities in life.
The ‘Tories think about offering Nando’s discount card to young people to join their party’ thing was good for a laugh, but it underlies a fucked up message that the Tories apparently think so little of the young that they believe they can almost irreparably fuck over an entire generation with their policies but that a promise of cheaper chicken would be enough for that generation to forgive them and pay to throw their lot in with the hideous bastards.
Hey, would you look at that.
2 years after the referendum and less than 1 year until what used to be the hard deadline for Brexit negotiations to be completed and our government finally deigns to tell their public what their Brexit vision actually is.
I feel like we should have gotten this a lot sooner. Say… at least before the general election the PM called where she campaigned on getting the electorate to trust her with Brexit.
It shouldn’t be possible to make me genuinely like the House of Lords because I hate the idea of them even as a concept and want it abolished, but apparently the Tories are just so shitty that unelected pricks in a Parliamentary Chamber that shouldn’t exist are a preferable alternative to our elected government.
That’s almost impressive in a really fucked up way.
Today I put a £5 bet on Theresa May being replaced as Prime Minister in 2019.
Would have done this year but I feel like the harridan’s going to hang on through to the new year, but sometime next year when the finalisation of her Brexit plan gets repeatedly fucked over by her own incompetence is when she’ll probably finally fuck off.
I don’t think any of her MPs, while publicly slagging her plan off, want the hassle of having to replace her while Brexit is still being negotiated. They’ll wait until afterwards, claim the deal she got was shit (which it will be for myriad reasons, not least of which is her aforementioned incompetence) then challenge her for the leadership.
I would have put a double on who her replacement is but the going favourite is Jacob Rees-Mogg and I don’t think I could live with myself if I made money off of that cretinous fuckbasket in any way.
Look, at the end of the day if Jacob Rees-Mogg is in favour of something then by definition that thing cannot be good for the ‘common man’ or the working class.
Have you ever seen or heard him? He is the definition of a privileged snooty posh-boy twat-features Tory. He is not a friend of the working class, he only wants Brexit because he wants the UK and a Tory government to be free of the burdensome regulations of the EU that protect shit like workers’ rights and enforce minimum employment standards.
He wants a free-for-all race to the bottom among business where they’re free to exploit both employees and consumers as much as possible in pursuit of an ever-fruitful bottom line with no regard for peoples’ wellbeing or livelihood.
If you are on the lower end of the class spectrum and think Jacob Rees-Mogg is on your side, then you are being taken for a ride.
Hey, remember who was Home Secretary in 2013?
Oh, that’s right. Theresa May.
So… when can we expect your resignation, Prime Minister?
I know the usual and obvious answer but let’s look at this logically. These are the councils the Liberal Democrats won:
These are not places where Labour is on the cusp of victory if only those pesky Liberal Democrats didn’t split their vote.
To assume that without the Lib Dems, Labour would be massive electoral forces on these councils is a huge leap from the more realistic answer that without the Liberal Democrats these councils would be pretty damn solid and impenetrable Tory majorities with an eclectic spate of independents and some minority presence from Labour or the Greens. Certainly not enough to challenge the majority.
I get that it’s annoying when your party isn’t always winning all the time, but surely we must all agree that any loss for the Tories is a gain for the nation as a whole at this point.
Unless you’re one of those people who genuinely think the Liberal Democrats are worse than the Tories, but if you think that frankly you’re beyond help and I don’t care to know you.
We got her, folks!
Goodbye you toxic harridan. I’d say it’s been nice knowing you but it damn well hasn’t. Oh and please do let every single door you can find hit you on the way out, repeatedly if possible.
