Come back Michael Foot


Thanks to two Conservative Prime Ministers taking a gamble with our future for the sake of their own political careers, we are now the laughing stock of the world, let alone Europe.

As predicted, Bath now has a Lib Dem M.P. - thankfully - so don't blame us for whatever happens in the future, even if the majority did vote for Brexit.

All of a sudden, it now seems like an asset that Jeremy Corbyn has never held high office in a UK government. It just proves that he is not a conniving, self-centred, ruthlessly ambitious, career-driven egomaniac like all the others who have held high office before him.

The reason why he did so well and survived the relentless attacks in the run up to the election and beyond is because he had the normally disinterested and apathetic youth on his side. They have been set one bad example too many in the last couple of years and have had enough.

We are now deeper in the shit than ever before.

  3. A tbi may mellow your perception of the future. I not only can no longer process what has happened to Britain, I also find I don't really care. Che sera sera.

  5. No, you don't get to call yourselves the laughing stock of the world;we still own that title, and it doesn't look as if we will be shed of it any time soon.

    1. No, you are the most dangerous laughing stock of the world. I am pleased that the more of this stuff that happens in the UK, the less dangerous we get.

  6. This might cheer you up or not.
    When Mrs May's folk go to Europe to discuss Brexit her team will be known as the Conservative Unionist Negotiating Team ! The first letters being those of a popular swear word....

    1. That's a great abbreviation. I think that the border business between the North and the South of Ireland is going to bring back a load of old 1970s problems. It goes on and on...

    2. We, the majority on this Island really do not want to return to those times Tom. For a great deal of effort has gone into the Peace Process that was engineered by The Good Friday Agreement which still binds us together.

    3. You will - almost certainly - return to those interesting days of trouble, as will we on the 'Mainland'. Brexit means Brexit, whatever that means.

    4. The "Mainland" for me is Ireland there is no other land.

  7. We are supposed to be the 5th richest country in the world and many people are having to get hand-outs from fucking food-banks. You talk about poor families where no child does not have a play-station, or who eat MacDonald's every day instead of cheap, nutritious food? Fuck off, baby-boomers.

    1. It's rent and rates which put the poorer families into poverty, not just rising food-prices. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

  8. I feel sorry for those who have needlessly lost their seats to this farce

    1. I feel more sorry for their constituents. We in Bath are comparatively fortunate, like I say. We have returned to our natural condition - wishy-washy Liberal. Nick Clegg lost in Sheffield I see. It's not quite so grim up North these days.

    1. I like Sheffield. I was warned off a grim pub there by H.I.'s mother, but although it was as rough as fuck, you could not find friendlier people.

  10. What kind of political party wins only 12 out of 650 seats?

    1. Everyone is having to re-think the whole thing because of it.

  11. I think that Corbyn really and cleverly exploited the fact that he was never going to win the election by promising everybody everything that they wanted. Knowing he wasn't going to win the election meant that he was never going to be in danger of having to find the money to pay for all the "sweeties". Unfortunately a lot of today's youth fell for the sweet shop tactic.

    1. He could have paid to eradicate the student debt - by scrapping Trident. He also got many of the elderly Conservative votes as well, thanks to Theresa May feeling so confident about winning that she chose to unveil her plans for cutting the care of the elderly in her manifesto. The exact opposite of burying bad news.

  12. As I said over at Cro's: What's with all the youth bashing?

    Before you reach for the delete button as is your wont, please do me, or rather my son, the courtesy to read and, dare I say it, comment on my last blog post entry "Hope".

    Looking forward to your input.
