I think the fact that this story was, as far as I know, leaked to/run by the Torygraph

underlines the fact that this power struggle, like nearly all the malign politics in recent British history, is just between different groups of elites in the English Tory party and the factions in the billionaire/neoliberal press that support them.

It’s depressing.

If there has only been one thing I have gained from the last few years, it is that I have accepted and embraced my Irish traveller heritage, even if I disagree with parts of the culture (homophobia and transphobia are British and Vatican imperialism, get rid of it).

Britain will never accept me even if I try to fit in. I’m not going to bother any more.

Fuckers. What is it with the Tories? Intent on systematically dismantling democracy bit by bit while any opposition is distracted by the shiny shiny of cheese and wine parties.

I’ve said before that the difference between the Tory party then and now is that now they have access to a surveillance apparatus through legislation like the Investigatory Powers Act which Thatcher’s government could not have imagined in their wildest authoritarian dreams. Still not enough though…
