UK Political Thread, part the second

As a target of some of those attack lines and tub-thumping slogans, I would like to politely tell the Labour party to FUCK OFF! if they want to do that. This is why I am no longer a member of the Labour Party.

If Labour want to be TERFy Tories then there is no point in me voting for them. My life will be in danger no matter who wins the next election. Right now I am swinging away from cooperation with the state back towards anarcho-communism, not as a theoretical exercise but as a way to survive as the state becomes hostile towards trans people, travellers, immigrants and refugees, etc.

I miss the old days when I only got angry at the Labour leadership, and didn’t understand how shitty they really are.

Sadly the current Labour leaders and old guard have no interest in the Preston Model.

I wish people would stop assuming, too, that most people want to vote for hurting others. I think if you center these issues, and tell people that instead you want to protect vulnerable populations, because that is indeed the best way to defend all our rights, since they’re connected together, most people will be on board with that.

Reminds me of a recent Beau video on Roe, where he says as much with regards to family planning. That the Democrats need to put that issue front and center, as it’s a winning issue. Same with protecting the rights of the LGBQT+ community and opposing people like terfs.

According to YouGov, the general public is 79 per cent likely to support a family member coming out as lesbian, gay, or bi. Meanwhile, 63 per cent they would support a family member coming out as trans.

Seventy-four per cent of cis LGB adults feel safe in the streets of the area they live, with 78 per cent of all Britons feeling the same way. Comparatively, only 57 per cent of trans people said they felt safe in their area.

Javid and Sunak resign.

I thought this was a suggestion, but you’re right!

I just saw that.

Though I suspect these two gentlemen quit because it would damage their careers to stay, not because two Tory ministers miraculously grew consciences today.

I hope Sajid Javid has already irreparably damaged his career. I don’t know anything about the other minister but he is a Tory, so he’s probably an asshole as well.

Rishi Sunak was the Chancellor of the Exchequer (he runs the Treasury) – much bigger deal than Javid.
Luckily his wife is worth a packet.

You put an extra word in there, would you like it back?

Oh, that’s where I put that word. I’ve been looking all over for it. I would love it back.

Spot on.
I’m not sure about Javid’s future, but at least Rishi has a comfortable £800 Million to fall back on, just in case.

Javid also has no need to worry about money ever again.

Rattus Rattus is intelligent, social and community minded, most Tories don’t even hit that bar.

Given recent events, had they not resigned 2-3 years minimum ago, they’re assholes and that’s being generous…

The Tories have not been even trying to hide what they are. EVERY current member is very complicit.

Her ignorance knows no boundary, it is a vast, featureless plain where ideas go to die.

Meanwhile…

Same as the old boss

The swine Javid allowed the child of a British citizen to die in a refugee camp in order to pander to Britain’s xenophobic mob. In a party full of evil, callous scum he’s second only to Priti Patel in the ‘Tories who’d have loved being concentration camp staff’ rankings.
