As local election season approaches, so too do the ‘Vote UKIP’ signs in my local area spring forth upon numerous gardens like hideous fucking weeds that you can never seem to permanently get rid of despite how utterly useless and hideous they are.

Who in the name of all that anyone has ever co…

Who in the name of all that anyone has ever considered holy is still willingly supporting these libelous irrelevant jackanapes with upwards of £300,000?

No, I really want to know. They say it wasn’t just one rich arsehole so it’s several people at least, possibly quite a lot of people.

Find these people.

Get them the mental health assistance that they require.

Because it is nothing short of madness to still give UKIP money. They have no reason to exist. Stop paying them to exist!

What is wrong with people!?

‘I really hope claims Brexiteers are stealing children’s futures prove true,’ Nigel Farage says

‘I really hope claims Brexiteers are stealing children’s futures prove true,’ Nigel Farage says:

Mr Farage told an audience in Westminster: “Chuka Umunna said the other day he thinks the Brexit vote means we’re stealing our children’s futures from them. Well I really hope we are.”

In case anybody still had doubt who drove the UK out of the EU:

A generation fuelled by false nostalgia of a time that never was, statistically over represented by the baby boomers made a decision they don’t really going to life and see the full consequences of. As by the time this happens the majority that voted for it will be dead. While they themselves never suffered through the horrors of a country destroyed by war and had lived through a historically unparalleled period of prosperity and growth (mainly thanks to EU membership), their parting gift will be decades of slow economic decline for a generation that is already worse off than they ever were

One thought that parents look after their children, but this generation seems to hate them! And at times even seem to joy seeing them suffer!

A healthy majority of Leave voters, it found, claimed that “significant damage to the British economy” would be a price worth paying for Brexit: 61 per cent, compared to just 20 per cent who disagreed. More bizarrely, when the question was made more personal, and respondents were asked would it be worth “you or members of your family” losing their jobs, 39 per cent still thought Brexit was totes worth it – slightly more than the 38 per cent who, like normal, sane people, replied “obviously not”.

100,000 people marched against Brexit this weekend. You probably didn’t hear about it on the BBC

100,000 people marched against Brexit this weekend. You probably didn’t hear about it on the BBC:

BBC refuses to disclose how many complaints it has received over yesterday’s [Sun 25th of March] news

Female Egyptian engineering student, 18, beaten to death by ten-strong girl gang in suspected race hate attack

Female Egyptian engineering student, 18, beaten to death by ten-strong girl gang in suspected race hate attack:

Every detail of this case if horrifying:

“Just one man tried to defend her, but no one else tried to interfere”

And the famously underfunded NHS?

“The hospital sent her home despite her severe cerebral haemorrhage.”

According to CNN: Egypt wants answers in death of teenage student in UK and understandably so!

But this is not an isolated case anymore, race motivated crimes are not a systemic problem in the UK. Just the day before a Black boy ‘tied to lamppost and whipped’ at school’s “mock slave auction” run by white teenagers. (The Times, BBCMirror) And last year the BBC reported a 29% rise in hate crimes in England and Wales. 

Something that doesn’t reflect well on Boris Johnson outrage, when at the end of his visit to India, Emmanuel Macron directly addressed Indian students to choose France if they want to study in Europe.

‏The Brexiteers, who played the racism card at every given opportunity in the run up of the EU referendum are now seriously complaining? 

”Boris Johnson says Britain will now help Turkey join EU despite using prospect to help win referendum”

Sarcasm? Hypocrite?  I honestly can’t think of a word expressing my disgust with these Individuums.

So my advice to all foreign students thinking about going to study in the UK is clear: Go to France!! Or Germany, or Slovenia? Anywhere by England!

Austerity and the rise of the Nazi party

Austerity and the rise of the Nazi party:

I know, reading research papers is boring, but this one might be worth your time:

Abstract: The current historical consensus is that Hitler’s rise to power in 1933 was largely a result of the Treaty of Versailles and the Great Depression (high unemployment and financial instability). However, these factors cannot fully account for the Nazi’s electoral success. Alternatively it has been speculated that radical austerity measures, including spending cuts and tax rises, contributed to votes for the Nazi party especially among middle- and upper-classes who had more to lose from them. We use voting data from 1,024 districts in  Germany  on  votes  cast  for  the  Nazi  and  rival  Communist  and  Center  parties  between  1928  and  1933,  evaluating whether radical austerity measures, measured as the combination of tax increases and spending cuts, contributed to the rise of the Nazis. Our analysis shows that chancellor Brüning’s austerity measures were positively associated with increasing vote shares for the Nazi party. Consistent with existing evidence, we find that unemployment rates were linked with greater votes for the Communist party. Our findings are robust  to  a  range  of  specifications  including  an  instrumental  variable  approach  a  border-pair  policy  discontinuity design and alternative measures of radicalization such as Nazi party membership.

… at the bottom of page 2, continuing to page 3, it reads:


With dashed hopes and a loss of faith in the Weimar Republic, fury and
despair were channelled into the ranks of populists and demagogues, with
the Nazi party campaigning against austerity and offering promises for a
new era of prosperity. The lowest status groups and the unemployed turned to the Communists, but those just above in the economic hierarchy, who had more to lose from the tax hikes intended to enhance central government finances, favoured the Nazis.

Most of us understand the immediate implications of fascism. But as somebody who grew up in Austria at the end of the Soviet Union. And as such have seen the state of our neighboring countries first hand after the fall of the iron curtain. Believe me when I tell you that communism didn’t turn out great for the working classes either.

It’s good to know that UKIP all along was basically just a stupid vanity project to serve the power fantasies of whatever idiot happened to be running it.

Nigel Farage has been pretty thoroughly exposed as a power-obsessed self-aggrandising shitheel only interested in doing anything to get himself more attention and adoration like a spoiled child with a drinking problem.

If I recall rightly then a couple of the runners-up in one of their innumerable recent leadership elections have tried to start their own parties too.

And now Henry Bolton, their most recent and most forgettable leader, has decided that he is singularly so important to the entire dynamic and entire future of British politics going forward that after being punted out of UKIP he’s fashioned himself an entirely new political party in the form of OneNation.

A man who was so irrelevant that the fact that his girlfriend is a racist is more newsworthy than literally anything about the man himself.

UK’s unemployment suffers unexpected rise

UK’s unemployment suffers unexpected rise:

What do you mean “unexpected”?

And the obvious market reaction: Pound Decline Deepens as U.K. Jobless Rate Unexpectedly Climbs (Bloomberg) 

And keep in mind, this is old data, so the recently announced manufacturing and banking layoffs will not be factored into these numbers for another quarter or two.

If you have recently been fired due to Brexit, remember to keep a steep upper lip, and be cheerful. After all, it won’t be as bad as a Mad Max-style world!
