Whodathunkit?

And there was me thinking this whole bollocks was about saving 17 cunts in trawlers?

True?

No.

If they soggy cunts think so, more fool them. The irony of them being so easily hooked...

Here is an article which wilfully provokes Godwin's Law in comparing - between the lines - the potential actions of the current UK government with the Nazis in 1933. It's speculative obviously, but it does make ya think.

(The author, BTW, was originally pro-Brexit and worked as an aide to a very right-wing Tory, back in the day)

Happily put my hand up and admit I don't know enough about other governments and constitutions across the world, but a part of me has always thought that a written constitution would be a good idea. But once you have a codified constitution it becomes necessary to have a supreme court which has the capacity to countermand the elected government - how else do you independently review and interpret the constitution relative to the acts of parliament?

But then I look at the US Constitution (second amendment etc) and the Supreme Court (Amy Coney Barrett etc) and think fuck, that's not so great either. Surely there must be, somewhere, a constitution which has a pragmatic approach to amendments and an equally sensible ultimate enforcing body?

You couldn't make it up...

Government site https://beta.nationalcareers.service.gov.uk asks a series of questions and then suggests possible career options.

So far?

Circus performer. Stunt man. Event manager.

Unfuckingbelievable.

What you thinking of trying? High wire? Lion taming? Balancing pint glasses on your cock? I'd pay to see two of those.

Interesting question.

There appear to be a number of clowns doing well for themselves, in and around Whitehall. And a lot of folk are leaping from the burning wreck of the events industry, so that seems popular...

More grift and corruption every time you look for it.

Ol’ Andy Burnham is blazing right now. Shame it’s taken a crisis for Manc / the North generally to gain a strong voice, and a shame he’s getting fuck all support from Starmer.

Got to say that reading Marcus Rashford's twitter timeline with council upon council offering free food to kids during the holidays is moving and heartwarming. If it's true that the Tory govt has "spaffed" 12 billion on a failed "world-beating" track and trace system and 108 million on PPE dished out to mates' companies without proper tendering etc etc - we've all read about the alleged corrupt deals, e.g Serco’s CEO is the brother of an ex-Tory MP. His partner is a Tory donor. Serco’s ex-head of PR is now a Tory Health Minister etc Rashford's campaign is turning into a focal point for all visceral rage and frustration at the shower of shit who govern us with their Brexit bullshit and Covid ineptness. I think ultimately Rashford might be getting in too deep - we all know how fickle the press are in this country and they may ultimately crucify him but fuck it - he's doing a great job in uniting the country against the biggest bunch of cunts we've ever seen.

For every step,the footprint was already there.

While I agree, it’s also beginning to stir up the fucktards that voted this shower in, extraordinarily finding reasons to support the ‘no’ voters.
There’s more than 300 cunts out there, that’s for sure.
