Love Labour’s Loss


One might have been forgiven for thinking that last weekend’s great festival of ‘Music, art poetry, dreaming, fun, happiness’ was indeed ‘a great day out.’ After all, the great messiah of the working classes, Jezza himself, said as much – so it must be true!

But it’s not true is it? The fact is that Labour Live was a monumental flop. Not that you will have heard that on the TV news, a situation which would not be unexpected on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation, but what about Sly News, or Idiot TeleVision? No. Not a dicky bird. Nothing. But what did you expect? Did you hear them report earlier in the week that six members of the Labour front bench resigned en masse? No, of course you didn’t…

The press were marginally less biased about Jezfest, but not a lot. Even the more recognisable Labour rags were a bit scathing. Even the Grauniad declared “If walking around JezFest is anything to go by, the Tories have little to fear!”

It started badly for Labour when some idiot snowflake at HQ suggested that they could build on Comrade Corbyn’s ego trip at last year’s Glastonbury by holding their own mini version in the north London Labour heartland. It was a bad idea. First, they couldn’t find any committed socialist bands to pay for free. Socialist principals have their price, after all.

Then they couldn’t sell the tickets. £35 to hear a speech from the great Catweazel. Surely a bargain? Well, no. 30,000 on sale, only 2,000 mugs, so just to piss off the 2,000 they slashed the price to £10. And for just ten quid you get to talk to the great McClusky himself in the Unite marquee. Who could refuse that? Well, loads of people actually.

Not that this deterred the organisers. Unite bought 10,000 tickets at the full £35 and provided free transport to bus them in. Of course several of them were there already because they were bullied into working as stewards for free – pretty hypocritical for a party which condemns interns working for free!

But even that didn’t work. Even in a Momentum stronghold, they couldn’t attract people who wanted to listen to the likes of Eddie Izzard and Owen Jones telling them what they should be thinking. To be fair, I suppose that’s understandable. What would your traditional Labour core voter make of a transvestite alternative comedian with fake tits? Hard to say, but we could probably guess. But as one reporter revealed, when he got to the door determined that he wasn’t going to pay more than the discounted £10 for a ticket, he was told that ‘locals get in for free’. What a shame they forgot to tell the locals!

And then there was the moment the great man appeared – only to be met with a group of protesters proclaiming ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ seeking to ‘democratically overturn Brexit’. Well, they were ejected by a bunch of momentum heavies (denied by the organisers despite video evidence) because they were ‘blocking the view with their banner’. Democracy in action, presumably? Where did we see this sort of tactics before? Nazi Germany during the rise of Hitler perhaps?

No, at the end of the day you can spin this any way you like – and be assured they will – this was an ill conceived vanity project and a comprehensive failure. Even some of the photographs on Facebook bore a remarkable similarity to Glastonbury 2016. Presumably that was just a mistake rather than a deliberate lie? Of course it was.

So how do we sum up Labour Live 2018? Let’s be honest – if a major political party can’t even make a profit on a fundraiser, how the hell can you expect them to handle the economy?

“Labour – for the few, not the many”

Never underestimate the ability of people to be stupid…

Unite’s new poster…


Today McCuntsky’s lefty boys have launched a new post campaign in north of England to persuade people to “come home to Labour” on the 8th June.

They say ‘only Labour will protect jobs, the NHS, education and pensions’ – but I prefer a more honest version.

Labour will flood the country with immigrants – banging up class sizes, push taxes through the roof to pay for their ridiculous schemes, raid your pension fund, and destroy your jobs by raising corporate taxes and driving away investment.

So the real truth is that voting Labour on 8th June will wreck the country and the prospects for you and your kids. Come home to Labour on 8th June – and the next day you can come home to poverty and destitution.

That’s the real truth behind Labour…

Buying your first home…

This weeks announcements about the ‘housing crisis’ and the plight of the poor snowflakes who can’t get on the housing ladder has caused me to think back to the ‘bad old days when I were a lad’ and how it was so much easier for my generation. Not.

Here’s how it used to work :

(1) You can’t afford to start with a four bedroom detached house in the same street where your parents live. You have to start with a one bedroom flat in a cheaper area and commute. That’s reality. Get used to it, snowflakes!

(2) You can’t afford to buy it on your own as a single person. In our day you decided to get married and bring two incomes to the table.

(3) You haven’t got a deposit so you have to save for one. This means you and your future partner opened a joint building society account and went without the simple things in life like going out every night with your mates, eating out instead of cooking at home, buying your coffee in Starfucks – that sort of thing. It’s called ‘making sacrifices’.

(4) After three years of saving, you went grovelling to the building society to apply for a mortgage. This was based on joint incomes, not a single income, and you had to prove by saving regularly that you (a) had a deposit and (b) could make the repayments. If you were very very lucky then you could get away with a 95% mortgage. 100% or higher was unheard of! 90% was the norm.

That’s how easy it was for us – which is why it makes by piss boil when I hear the entitlement generation whinging and bitching on about how it was so much easier for us and how they’re never going to be able to afford a home of their own. Reality seems to be something that simply doesn’t impinge on their view of the unfair, harsh cruel world that they’re living in.

In this life, you don’t get ought for nought. You have to earn it like we had to.

Get used to it…!

Rotten Boroughs : Greenwich

I am reproducing this from the BNP Bolton website, so I think you need to bear that in mind when you read it. It nevertheless makes a very valid point :

This is a kick in the teeth and a total injustice for the family of Lee Rigby, and it’s also a kick in the teeth for the British people that was outraged at the murder of Lee Rigby by the two Somalian Muslims who in broad daylight ran him over, and then started to hack away at his body and tried to behead him

A Memorial for Lee (who was White) has been refused, which is an outrage. Lee was a soldier who had served in Afghanistan, and on his own soil in England was butchered. He left the barracks wearing an Help For Heroes sweat shirt, as he was crossing the road, he was knocked down and hacked to death, by two Muslims who said they were fighters for Allah.

The Labour run Greenwich council has point blank refused a Memorial in honor of Drummer Lee Rigby.

Stephen Lawrence (who was black) was a gang member and a drug dealer, he was attacked by some White youths and was stabbed, but was it one of the White lads that stabbed him? it has been said that it was a friend of Lawrence who stabbed him and then ran off. The friend (who was also black) was not allowed to go to the funeral, why not? does the family of Stephen Lawrence know his friend had stabbed him, but kept their mouths shut, we may never know.

Stephen Lawrence who was a drug dealer and in a black gang, is to get a Memorial and his Mother has now been made a Baroness!!! EH. What?

So. Lee Rigby, a young man who fights for his country and had a family of his own, who is ran down and hacked to death by two black Somalian Muslims, gets nothing at all, in fact since his murder, nothing else has been said, it’s all been hushed up, but they never stop talking about the Stephen Lawrence case, but had he been White, they would have stopped talking about him two weeks after he had been killed.

But a black drug dealer and gang member who was killed, get’s to have a Memorial, and his Mother is made a baroness. This is disgusting, it just goes to show that the soldiers who fight for our country are worth nothing in the eyes of the government. The government should hang their heads in shame.

It should be pointed out that the Lawrence memorial is in Eltham and the Rigby one was proposed for Greenwich, but nevertheless whilst not condoning the language or message of the BNP, if you commemorate Lawrence then surely Rigby deserves the same treatment?

In the words of Ali G “Is it ‘cos I’s black?”
