Is It Just Me: Who Think’s May’s Vanity Has Fucked Us All?

Been a while hasn’t it since I’ve written a post tagged in the “Is It Just Me” series, but today’s latest fuckwittery in UK politics meant it’s come out of semi-retirement.

Fuck. Sake.

As if the situation after the Election could have gotten any worse, it has, thanks to Calamity May and her band of, oh yes, lets not pretty it here people, TERRORIST HOMOPHOBE AND SEXIST PIGS that she has signed up to prop up the government that we didn’t want but she now says we have to have so there *insert raspberry blowing here*

I shall now feel totally justified in:

  1. Calling her a Terrorist Sympathizer since she threw that at Jeremy often enough, and
  2. Asking her poxy “I’m OK so fuck you poor people underneath me” supporters whether they are now just as happy to shout that about May as they were on her say so about Jeremy and see if they can actually stand up and be counted for the shite they’ve mired us all in.

What was it? Was she really that pissed off about Jeremy’s amazingly well put together speech at Glastonbury?

May now acts like a petulant child. If we point out that we think she’s a useless PM who we don’t want and the polls show that she would not have a chance if they held the election now, she goes and stamps her feet and ramps the bad times up a notch to teach us a lesson.

And where, prey tell, has this Billion quid of practically a bribe come from?

In the course of the election campaign, she pretty much belittled everyone who voiced how much they struggle down to her unfair austerity measures by using the excuse there is no “Magic Money Tree”. Homeless soldiers, hungry nurses, kids in schools that are teaching them nothing of any worth, families in situations where they heat or eat and the country living in shit due to terrorism and a lack of fire services and police cuts were all excused via her suggesting we have no money in the country and hard choices must be made.

So where has this vanity bribe come from?

Maybe it’s because this year councils wont have to pay people under the table to turn a blind eye to the appalling lack of safety in buildings clad in death trap making plastic? Seen as Grenfell is now a visible monument to our government’s contemptible lack of care towards people who can’t afford their own homes. 100% of the buildings tested thus far have failed miserably, yet last year and in the years prior, they passed. How? How is that bloody possible?

Someone, somewhere, fucked up. And now it seems the Government is eager to lay the blame at the door of Hotpoint, the Tory supporting press after slagging off the poor guy who’s fridge is said to have started the blaze and getting a rollicking now quick to pass the buck onto them.

However, there is little chance of that being at solely at fault- survivors had long since complained of power surges in that block, and power surges and electrics don’t make good things happen.

Regardless of how the fire started, blocks of flats were built so as any fires in the individual homes would burn out within them but not effect anyone else. That didn’t happen with Grenfell. It burned, and despite being put out, the whole block went up. That was why at first tenants were told to stay put, it was on safety notices in the block too. That was what went wrong- the things that should have been checked and sorted clearly were not.

I live in an area that now has one of the highest number of homeless people in the country. The thing is, Berkshire isn’t a “poor” borough. May is the MP for one of the areas of the Borough. She lives ten minutes from my house.

Yet on Saturday, walking through the High Street, we saw tents pitched in shop doorways at what was a Shopping Mall, the only shelter found by homeless people. A homeless community in my town centre. There are several of these now, and plenty of homeless who don’t have the “luxury” of a tent too.

I feel guilty and ashamed that it has come to this.

May and her party took part in Armed Forces Day on Saturday, yet there are currently estimated to be 7,000 homeless ex-service personnel in the UK. How she dares show her face is beyond me.

We don’t live in the developing world. We do live though in a country where people feel no shame in ringing up a radio show to bitch and complain that Grenfell survivors are being given- or rented cos I doubt they’re given them for long- a new home in a luxury block. I’ve even seen tweets suggesting that the blocks will end up “covered in graffiti”.

Where has the care and compassion gone? And why has it gone?

My view is the blame comes from the propaganda used by the Tories to justify the cuts made to some of the most vulnerable. These divs who read Murdoch and papers like his are happy to be spoon fed the reassurance that those who have their money cut, or work for a pittance deserve it as they are scum and scroungers with twenty kids by 10 dads and have better mobiles and full Sky Tv.

I have to justify my belief that Corbyn isn’t some drippy hippie saying things could be more fairly attributed in the country to people who genuinely think that anyone poor fits the chav stereotype touted above.

It doesn’t make you a “hippie” or “daft” to give a shit that we live in a country where people have to live in a tent on the street. That people can’t access health care, or jobs, or homes. That kids are going hungry and have little chance to better themselves as they can’t afford Uni.

Please, please, lets not stop until she quits. We don’t have to live like this, we do have options. I pray the peace process doesn’t end in Northern Ireland for something as petty as May wanting her own way.

This PM feels vanity is far more important than the will of the many.

And that’s exactly what Corbyn wanted to prevent in the first place.

 

WTF May? WTAF?

For fuck sake.

The country has gone bloody mad in the last few days.

Usually, after an election, you get the calm after the storm of electioneering. You either feel hopeful as your chosen party got in, or a bit miffed they didn’t.

Now after Thursday, I’m even more angry than I was before it, before Cameron resigned, before all of it.

I know the Conservatives are a bunch of morally bankrupt, self serving arseholes, but never have I ever encountered a leader who would go so far to fuck us all in more ways than we ever felt possible than Theresa, Fucking Idiot, May.

Yes, I am aware that I am waving a metaphorical pitch fork here, call me anti feminist to slag off my fellow female if you please.

But I can’t be the only one to suggest that at this point, the only thing us females have in common with her is a vagina?

Yes, she did “win” the election, but not in the way she set out to- she herself said that if she missed a majority by 6 seats, she would immediately resign. She missed that majority by more than that and she’s still littering up the place with her dodgy helmet hair and her questionable taste in clothing.

But now, to ramp up the fun times that she seems to think we all need so desperately, she’s decided to completely screw up Northern Ireland into the bargain, for shits and giggles.

Now, I don’t doubt that the same bunch of you who had no clue about the finer points of the batshit craziness that is Northern Irish politics and the history of the aptly named “troubles” and thus felt it fine to call Corbyn a “Terrorist Sympathiser” (you know, I can’t quite think who spent two years calling him that, can’t think at all… cough Theresa May cough) before the election may not quite understand the horror that her signing up with the DUP brings.

I also don’t doubt that, if Jeremy had of linked up with the DUP, the shit he would have quite rightly received would have been unreal.

These are not nice people.

We may have been 20 years into the Good Friday Peace Agreement. But after at least a hundred years of very violent unrest and atrocities on both sides, 20 years is simply not long enough. We’re talking the foundations have been made but they’re still laid on sand and liable to collapse.

When Kensington and Chelsea, and other constituencies votes (cough, Amber Rudd and the questionable 300) had to be recounted several times last week, we were all raising our eyes and asking how hard can it be to count some crosses. In Northern Ireland, it’s the norm to stop people going and showing their displeasure by shooting someone.

The DUP was started by Ian Paisley Snr, and it wasn’t started with the same scruples and good faith as the SNP in Scotland. Paisley was more than aware that the Ulster paramilitaries (erm, can I be the first to say I hate that term, we don’t call ISIS “paramilitaries” they are fucking terrorists pure and simple) were going around and killing innocent people, he was a disgusting human being who turned a blind eye to the shit that was going down in his parties name.

And yes, so were Sinn Fien. They were all reprehensible. I don’t doubt those who are still alive amongst them or who have been raised to believe the troubles were a legitimate political statement and fight, don’t still harbor the same dangerous views.

Which is why despite Northern Ireland still being very much part of the Great British political map, they are several decades behind us in terms of how we live, what our politicians do and so forth.

And yes, it is hard to imagine politicians worse than those in Central Government, but how about, oh, I dunno, one’s who are vocally opposed to Homosexuality?

Vocally opposed to the point it is normal for these politicians to voice it in the press and live on TV that homosexuality is a “disease” and means those who practice it are “perverts”.

Are we keeping score here- shooting people for disagreeing on political points based on religion and a border- good!

Loving someone who just so happens to be the same sex as you- disgusting and bad!

As for women’s rights- what rights? Women still, still in 2017, have to travel over to the UK if they wish to exercise their right to choose not to be a parent. Now, I don’t like the idea of abortion, we do have contraceptives over here which are easy to pick up along with your salad and ice cream in the supermarket. BUT I am not so off as to suggest it’s anyone’s right to have one other than the woman having it, and doubt it’s ever an easy decision.

In the whole women’s rights and anti LGBT thing they may as well be Islamic Extremists frankly as they seem to have so much in common with them.

What is their view of what we should on LGBT? Throw them off a building? How very progressive of them.

It would be funny if it wasn’t so immediately true and about to be in our own bloody political chambers.

And what of the aforementioned Sinn Fein?

Part of the Good Friday agreement was that no party from either side would have more sway in Westminster than the other. In fact, Westminster was to stay neutral between the two sides at all times. This was a fundamental keystone of the signing of the agreement (that Corbyn helped forge- just thought I’d remind you of that one again).

So what will happen if the DUP do shore up May’s woeful minority government?

Sinn Fein are, quite rightly, going to wave that agreement aloft and ask what the bloody fuck May and the Conservatives think they’re bloody up to.

Already, the DUP are suggesting that a key change they wish to chuck through is a resurgence in the Orange Parade marches, especially through Drum Crae.

Again, most of you probably wont know why this is such a contentious issue. You wont remember the violence that followed, the days of unrest, the Police wagons on fire and the kids who had to be kept home from their school for fear of being caught in crossfire or because a bomb had been found in a bush next to their school.

What a lovely vision of Britain in 2017.

This is all stuff that has bubbled under, waiting to explode. We all thought the country had gone mad during the London riots a couple of summers ago. That was a few days of divs with heatstroke looking for an excuse to rob some Huaraches in the name of Political freedom, or some shit, innit.

Imagine that all the freaking time, throughout your childhood, into your teens, following you to the pubs (that you can’t go in certain ones or you’ll be beaten (at best) or killed (at worst), into who you choose to fall in love with (can’t be a proddie if you’re Catholic and vice versa) and right up until death. Walls everywhere, Police and Troops with guns, check points, houses burned down, you name it, this wasn’t a vision of Kabul, or Syria or Iraq. It was and could well be again down to May Northern Ireland.

The big concrete barriers that have returned to our streets recently due to a wave of Islamic Terrorism. Ever wondered why its said they have returned? It’s because at the height of the Troubles, we too used to have bombings and shootings. Coded warnings which either turned out to be nothing, or worse, something appalling. We had them then too.

I see a Northern Ireland until last week that was growing, that was getting better. Tourism was beginning to pick up- I don’t recall adverts for Northern Irish stays as a kid but they were growing in number. And so they should- it’s a beautiful part of the world.

Sinn Fein are already saying that they are sending representatives to Westminster as early as today to voice their strong opposition to this link up.

At a time when we all know how many of May’s party- herself included- voted to oppose rights for the LGBT community- it is vital that May does the right thing for once and resigns.

The very fact she went to ask the Queen’s permission to form a Government with the DUP before actually finalizing any such talks or agreement alone means she should be forced to go. I mean, she already shows no respect to the electorate, her party or Corbyn, but to dark off Liz? Off with her head I say.

Whether that means another bloody election or Corbyn taking his rightful place at the Westminster table, I’m down with either right now.

Anything that doesn’t mean a bunch of backward, outdated, actual Terrorist Sympathisers getting any form of political platform has to be better for Northern Ireland, for Westminster and for us all.
