Thus far in the tory leadership race, we have a coke head who led for a lifetime ban on teachers who had ever used cocaine, a homicidal psychopath who lowered the benefits bill by killing people, an habitual liar and Bullingdon Boy (where rules of membership include burning a £50 note in front of a homeless person).   Then there is crying Rory Stewart, who looks as though he is still getting his lunch money stolen every day.  Don't be misled by the caring face, he voted for the Bedroom Tax and benefit cuts.

It would be difficult in any society to find 4, ok 3, more odious individuals, but among the tory echelons they have quite a selection.  I haven't for example mentioned Lord Snooty, Jacob Rees-Mogg, who is poised to make billions if a Brexit deal can't be reached and who we know just can't wait for the all clear to flog his servants.  And of course Jeremy Hunt, raider of the NHS, who is more universally known by the alternate spelling of his surname.

Americans probably wonder, why the British consistently vote for politicians who only represent the privileged 1%.  And never was that more obvious than David Cameron's front bench of old Etonians.   Are working class people really voting for a government of privilege and elitism?  It compares to the angry mobs storming the bastille to demand more oppression.  Absurd.  But it happens again and again. 

Of course the odds of the tories choosing, or even finding, anyone 'likeable' to represent them is absurd - like they care.  It seems to matter not that their leader is despised by the masses, they still get into power anyway.  Happily we now have social media and good people who go on there everyday to expose the lies of politicians and the despicable voting records and policies of their evil leadership candidates.  Michael Gove probably felt pressured today to reveal his cocaine use, because he knows it is now open season for journalists to do their jobs.  His revelation may be softening the way to something bigger and more scandalous, is how a journalist may see it.  I don't really care which hideous lizard leads the party, they are all intrinsically evil.

What I do care about is the Establishment's constant endeavours to blacken the name of Jeremy Corbyn.  They fear him because he is honest and if he gets into power he will put the interests of the people before the bank accounts of billionaires.  Austerity is a con, a hoax, perpetrated on the British people by the Conservative government, aided by the Liberals.  They have literally broken Britain by sucking money out of the economy.  Nothing has been saved 'financially', and many parts of the UK are now looking neglected and derelict.  People are literally lining up at food banks and sleeping on the streets. 

We look like an impoverish third world nation.  We have suffered years of austerity, and the worst is still to come if there is a no deal Brexit.  We are now dealing with results of years of tory greed and incompetence.  They are stubbornly holding onto power despite the fact that they have failed miserably in making any sort of deal with Europe and they are never likely to. 

I think the only way to break the deadlock would be to have a General Election.  Whether they put Evil Esther or Barmy Boris in charge of Brexit negotiations, the people didn't and the people will want a say in the matter.  Seriously, should the fate of the entire nation lay in the hands of either of the above odious pair?

But I am going to brighten up this rant.  There is hope for the future.  Social media has overtaken the Mainstream media.  We are no longer brainwashed en masse.  News stories are instantly proved or disproved, the misinformation tools of wannabe dictators are constantly dismantled.  We can see that Jeremy Corbyn is not the monster the MSM portrays, their smear campaigns do not touch the hundreds of thousands who turn up for his rallies and who rushed to join the Labour party to keep him as Leader. 

Jeremy Corbyn is a kind, decent, and above all, honest man, the kind of man who actually listens to what others are saying.  In a nutshell, the ideal person to send to the Brexit negotiating table.  Added to which, he understand how the economy works, something you would think most politicians would know, but it appears not. He understands for example, that if the money creamed off the net annual income for billionaires was reinvested in, say the NHS, it would provide better patient care and more nurses. 

Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonald, who have spent their lives studying economics, understand that if the Government invests in the country, infrastructure, healthcare, education, science, technology, we will all benefit.  It is basically Roosevelt's New Deal, the way in which he rescued the USA from the Depression. investing in projects for the good of the people creates jobs.  Those jobs create more jobs, as once people have disposable income they start to buy luxury goods and services.  Austerity brings that mutually beneficial cycle of common sense economics to an end.

I am a child of the sixties, OK, they say if you remember the 60's you weren't there, but I was, just too young to partake in the sex, drugs and rock and roll.  But I remember the spirit of the times, the stroll down Carnaby Street, screaming at the Beatles and falling in love with Davy Jones (monkey).  As young as I was, I could sense Britain had come through a period of darkness and into the light, though tis true my memory may have been coloured more by Austin Powers than Harold Wilson.

In 2019 we face heading back into the darkness, a darkness created and enforced by this shambles of a tory government.  They dare not call a General Election now, because all they have to offer is more of the same and then some if we leave Europe without a deal.

Jeremy Corbyn offers a real alternative.  Where the tories are offering mere survival if we are lucky, Jeremy Corbyn is offering hope to millions, an opportunity to make the future brighter.  The Welfare State was founded immediately after the second World War, so too the National Health Service and National Insurance. The Welfare State undertook to protect the health and well being of its' citizens especially those with financial and social needs.  Radical socialist ideas at the time but ideas that put the UK at the forefront of the civilised world.  If a Labour government can build a Welfare State and a National Health Service in the aftermath of a World War, imagine what  a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour Government could do now?

Imagine a government who took the National Health Service to the next level by building more hospitals and employing more staff? The need is clearly there.  How about more schools, more teachers.  Imagine a government investing in science and technology and the Arts? England was once a world leader in exploration, at one point we ruled the waves I believe.  And we evolved into a civilised nation because we welcomed immigrants and learned from them.  How many of the world's geniuses would now choose to make the UK their home?  Closer to home how will the NHS survive if all those lovely nurses from Eastern Europe are forced to go home?

What we are faced with now is a battle between the Left and the Far Right, not only in the narrow minded, one issue Brexit party but in braindead Boris (currently watching Walking Dead).  What I fear the most is that the phenomenon that led the American people to think 'let's give a raving lunatic a try', may be replicated here in the UK.  After Trump, the saying 'stranger things have happened' has become meaningless. 


  1. A long, vicious, but pretty accurate damning of the Tory reptiles.There's hope for you yet :)


  2. Fact: It means that about 160,000 people will be choosing the next leader of a country of more than 65 million people.


    1. Thanks for pointing that out Dave, it's terrifying isn't it?

      I think there has to be a General Election. The Brexit deal as devised by Theresa May should be set out in a simplified bullet point format, so the public can see what the House of Commons are voting for or rejecting.

  3. All politicians lie, all politicians are out for what they can get for themselves. I have voted labour all my life but I would never vote for Jeremy Corbyn and I'm certainly not alone.
    The Tories are in disaray but they are the party in power at the moment so will be the party that removes us from the EU hopefully.
    Comrade Corbyn, if he is ever Prime Minister, will flood this country with even more immigrants and what will we do with all these scientists, doctors and engineers(haha) and why don't they stay in their own countries and improve them from the inside.
    We will always welcome health staff from the EU and elsewhere but this is a tiny country and we should be allowed to have a say in who we want to come here and it's not Albanian drug lords.
    Donald Trump is a democratically elected leader of our greatest ally, the United States. There is never a protest against the unelected despots such as the Chinese leader or the Middle East dictators. Why is that I wonder?

    1. Good heavens you have bought the Establishment's propaganda hook, line and sinker.

      The Tories are indeed in disarray and hanging onto power by a thread, yet you believe Boris or Esther should remove us from the EU? You are more concerned by immigrants than the toxic policies of extreme right wingers, very odd for a former Labour voter.

      Comrade Corbyn? Seriously? There is nothing despotic about Jeremy Corbyn whatsoever. He wants a better future for everyone, including immigrants, which is where I think you have your problem. If he was for the many (excluding immigrants) you would be fine with him.

      Why don't they stay in their own countries? you ask. Many reasons I should think, but predominantly because they want a better life for themselves and their families. They see the UK as a land of opportunity.

      And that's a good thing. While the indigenous population are static with apathy, the newcomers see business opportunities everywhere. They come here to work, and they work harder than anyone else because they have hope and because they have the determination to improve their lives.

      My parents were immigrants, my father from Dundee my mother from Ireland. My father didn't want to spend his life in a factory, my mother wanted to escape life on a farm. Both came to London to find work. My mother's brothers also came to England to work, they were among the thousands of Irish men who came over to the UK to lay roads, sending their wages home to support their families.

      I have a lot of admiration for the courage of immigrants, mostly because of my own dear mother who was only 15 when she came to England. It takes a lot of guts to uproot and start anew.

      You are deluding yourself if you think the NHS can continue as it is once new 'immigration' laws kick in. All non English NHS staff (about 50%+ of the workforce)will be under threat. It makes me wonder 12:30, if you or any of your family are treated by these foreign medics, do you ask them why they are here?

      As for this is a 'tiny country' argument, it always been. What you fail to understand 12:30, is that the world is not static. The UK is not that popular that everyone will come here and the island of England will sink.

      Your dream of living in the same street with the same white families for ever more is childlike and creepy. The only way that dream of yours can come true is if you marry your cousin and move in with the Amish.

      Your mention of Albanian drug lords defines you as a Trump supporter. Democratically elected you say? Err, one word, Russia. In the midst of all our own mayhem, it should be remember that Lord Haw Haw (Farage)was also cuddling up to Putin and Wikileaks. How true a result was the Brexit referendum?

      You ask why the public protest Trump and not Xi Jinping? It is because the USA is an ally, because the USA are so like us. Our message was not just to Trump but to the American people, as in 'seriously guys, wtf are you doing'. We care about the USA and its' citizens, the people of the US can do something about Trump, the people of China can nothing about Xi Jinping, and the people of China would hear our protests.

      I have no idea of your age, anon, so I'm not sure you'll understand when I make reference to one Alf Garnett. An iconic character of a famous British sit-com( till death do us part) in the 1960s. He was brilliantly drawn by Johnny Speight.

      Speight was of good, solid north of England working class stock and politically minded as well as talented.He would attend rallies and picket lines often and observe the mood of the day.One day he was stood behind young man who was constantly trying to barrack speakers with what he considered were cutting but insightful insults.Speight thought he was comedy gold.He was right, and Alf was born.What many people and fans of the series don't know is that the young political activist with a loud voice and odd ideas was a young actor 'between jobs' called Anthony Booth.As a thank you, Speight gave him a role in the series as Alf's son-in-law the 'scouse git'.Booth later had a wife and children, one of whom was to become a successful QC called Cherie Booth; later Cherie Blair.Booth, in his dotage, was kindly given the job of Tony Blair's chauffeur. The twists and turns of life.But I digress....

      The Tories are in pieces, It's true.But they seem to be in that condition every year.It doesn't damage them . Labour have been undermined too in the last couple of years.Take note of how long periods of time can pass by when we never hear about Tony Blair and what he's doing.Then, sudden;y he's on chat shows or debating shows out of nowhere.Then, just as suddenly, a destabilizing of the Labour party follows.Be it the party itself or the leader's credibility.He's been working against Corbyn on behalf of his Zionist sponsors and his old Tory comrades from day one.Hence Corbyn is lambasted in the media if he says he hates nuclear destruction ( makes him weak).Now he's anti-semite because he sees the plight of Palestine as inhumane.

      Given the last two years of Brexit debates and hold ups, where's your evidence that the Tory party will take us out of Europe ? It seems clear that an unseen hand has decided to stall and possibly cancel the whole idea.It's more likely that we'll remain if we get a new PM wearing blue.Your expression '' flood this country with immigrants'' is an echo of the infamous rivers of blood speech Enoch Powell gave us in the 60s( a hero of Alf Garnett by the way). The influx of immigrants has been colossal in the last 10 years.We haven't had a Labour Government for 10 years either. Have you got a calculator , 'comrade' ?

      '' we should be allowed to have a say in who we want to come here and it's not Albanian drug lords. ''

      Quite a statement.Albania ?What happened to Colombia .What is it we don't know...

      ''Donald Trump is a democratically elected leader of our greatest ally, the United States''

      Both consider Israel as their 'greatest allies' like it or not.Both jump according to their orders.That will include any decisions regarding Brexit too.

      '' There is never a protest against the unelected despots such as the Chinese leader or the Middle East dictators. Why is that I wonder?''

      Because it doesn't matter what the people think.So, you tell me, if you live under a dictatorship or in a democracy what's the difference when it comes to demanding transparency or change from leaders who have lied and been found out or are failing to deliver on promises they made to get their job from your vote.


    3. ( PS)

      Johnny was a cockeny really, but I pretend he's northern because I like him


  4. I see Boris as Caligula, when his rule of madness comes to an end, in will step Claudius Corbyn.
