The equal discourse fascism and hypocrisy of cry bullies(the woke) and the free speech absolutists.

On another note, the simple – profanity free – affirmative reply to my remark “those eyebrows tho”, lost someone their job.

I won’t supply any further details because social is patrolled by all the usual, but – trust me – there are truly sinister forces at play here .

One one side, we have armies of cry bullies intent on framing any and all difference – from the orthodoxy they wish to create- as hate speech , fobia and danger .
And – on the other – we have a rightist cohort gleefully feeding off this to demand protected , unfettered , totalitarian free speech. Not just for protection against overarching reaction to unintentional offence , but the untrammelled right to offend with intent to offend.

Well. Both sides are hypocrites. One side wishes to stifle people speaking their mind – even fairly or in the spirit of academia- whilst insisting on the right to force language.
And – the other – wishes to avoid consequence , while still pretty happy to wail about offence on every given opportunity*.
The “things we are not allowed to say”(yet never shut up about) brigade. Laurence Fox et al.

*I have personal experience of the latter, as l’m informed its more offensive to call someone a “twit” , than their sneering remark that solicited that reply.
** and these cats never meet my question of whether they’d similarly cheerlead the right to Holocaust denial, under their vaunted ideals of totally free discourse, with the straightforward “yes” their campaign would necessitate..the “quid pro quo”, if you will.

I’m not an absolutist. I don’t demand my views are validated. I do not believe all opinions have an equal right to exist , but nor do I believe that anyone has the right to force me to say that which I do not believe , or play along with ontological legerdemain.

Yeh I’m a total f**knit at times, and I’m all over Shinigami Eyes for the sin of being a medic and empiracist, but that is purely because of the black and white division between “the purest best kindest, woke victimy victims” , and the “bravest truest freest protectors of discourse (“things I cannot say but never shut up about”)(feezepeach) victimy victims”

Thousands like myself are collateral damage , caught up in a polarised war of egos on a Capulet versus Montague scale .

And I gotta say this , a plague on both your houses.

Please, just what IS Porn Hub C3PO meant to convey?

There’s something a bit *off* about a woman portraying the mother of modern feminism as a naked “everywoman” …almost as some feminist point regarding the undressedness (or its equally sexualised opposite )demanded by the male gaze – of all women – is being missed But I’m not sure, was this some part of feminism I’m getting wrong?

At least it’s highlighted the crass stupidity of modern liberal feminism, vis the clear absurdity of – bare nekked leddy, weakened looking and apparently tumescent = feminism distilled?

In fact it’s ironic that – given the female anatomy is neither hidden , arcane or abstruse – that there’s statues of naked women literally everywhere, that the artist, simultaneously makes the point perfectly and so , so badly.

Those arms , for starters. Even the artistic merit is questionable. Do we see Newton so disrespectfully, and badly – on every artistic or philosophical level – so portrayed, like a snikkering adolescent’s idea of Porn Hub C3PO?

And on the subject of porn, if I didn’t know better, I’d say this was some sort of revenge porn against the very idea of feminism.

Triage of self over other, Covid , and the expunging of true liberalism.

“And I quote “Governments are still resorting to doing away with human rights to protect the few most vulnerable. We need to push back “

The governments doing this have been doing it before Covid. They didn’t need an excuse because we elected them. And by human rights, some of us extend those to “the vulnerable”, and exclude the supposed right to expect service workers – amongst whom number such because poverty – to endanger themselves for our “human rights”.

I mean – cashless welfare …not a new idea?

Voter ID , late to that table , kids

Commodifying education ..oh do keep up

Privatising the NHS – sole purpose of Brexit , conformed by Vince Cable?

Repro rights ? Well, at least they know what we ladies are and we can have our own whatever they chivalry on us . How nice.

Press freedom …yeh I warned you about the BBC.Educational freedom …c’et un q’elle surprise. Not.

On and on. It’s amazing what the request to don a few microns of cloth reveal.

Go on. Caper about. No actual champion of the working classes expects them to stand into danger. I know , minor detail. I’ve got sweet FA to gain from any of this. Get mad at me because I pointed out the suave men in Saville Row hate women. Its not my inverted snobbery that has me swooning over them. I know them.

But one thing I will not do is entertain bargaining. What I’m hearing in “we’ve got to get used to this thing”, is “please orrend there’s nothing going on, so I can” . And that’s the charitable version.

“Few most vulnerable” ? That’s *at least* 45k such ON TOP of whatever else is taking said. And all people are being asked to so is wear bloody masks , wash their hands , and queue.
Everything else is NOT NEW.

And – amongst this – I’m seeing a lot of so called “leftists” and “feminists” returning to florid terms such as “terror” and “totalitarianism” to justify their triage of libertarianism and neo liberalism over the rights of the less privileged. Over the collective good.

Yes authoritarian governments love a disaster. Here in the U.K. , the Tories are in the belief that we won’t notice them breaking two international treaties , one – a peace treaty – that stood to be epoch making.However , they have a majority of 80. So they don’t really care who knows what , and would proceed regardless.

Where am I going with this ? I’ve said it before. Useful idiots. Look at Brexit. Nobody cared about the EU before 2010. People falling for the deliberate nudges of planted grudges. People nudged into the very hands of the far right , by the far right.People rebelling into the very measures the far right couldn’t justify otherwise, all the while revelling in their larping – of what ? – the Prague spring ? Dear lord.

Newsflash. They were protesting a regime already in place , and there were tanks. Not face masks. ACTUAL TANKS.I see no Hungarians here.

There won’t be tanks here. There will be weaponised austerity and the dismantling of the post war social contact. But there won’t be tanks. Protest against that? Too late , nudged into connipting about public health measures, nudged into terror of uncontrolled immigration and Turkey joining the EU , we have been played , played into giving up the right to protest against what we ARE losing , and permanently.If tanks do appear , it’ll too late. We’ll have connipted away our right to protest the loss of the NHS , because we didn’t like masks, and thought pathogen amelioration = fascism. As though capitalists wreck economies for fun.

There’s a right wing culture war happening at the moment, one they’re winning.They’re winning because of a post war phenomenon of an increasing population of kidults , always scared someone else has more , and unused to the full sentence “no”. So much so, they’ll triage their individualism over the collective good.And the people nudging them ? Laughing all the way to the bank.

Neoliberalism , florid fantasy, and libertarianism, have no place in socialism or radical feminism. I don’t believe in any totalitarian system, but what decadent* people think they’re protesting against , may yet bring about far worse.

As to rejecting liberalism? Oh wow.Ok- a lot of modern liberalism is rooted in the belief that most people are benign, and that none the vulnerable can never be egregious, or perpetrators.
Or – if they are – their victims must never speak out. This has brought about- on the back of such noble intention – a culture of aggressive cry bullying.

I am not a modern liberal , but a classic one. I don’t like people.Much as I care for them, I don’t trust them. My liberalism and socialism stem from what used to be called enlightened self interest. I am we. I have firm red lines. Thus far, and no further. I never punch down. And certainly NOT on behalf of one oppressed group against another.Therein lies madness. The madness that is the uber woke.

But I say this. A great deal of this rejection of wokeism and modern liberalism has one goal, to expunge all liberalism, entirely. There is a concerted populist drive to erase human rights, workers rights . Women’s rights? Oh , we’ll have our spaces, as long as they are attached to whatever the modern day equivalent Children , Kitchen , and Church is. One desired outcome of Brexit alone is that the resulting mass unemployment will drive women back into domestic servitude, thus reducing the care bill. And remember, all but child benefit are now paid to the higher earner. So women will be trapped. Just a few weeks ago the Tories tried to restrict an already extremely rare medical procedure that cannot ever effect men, late term abortion.

The bias of the BBC is not unforced. I have been consistent about this since 2010. The BBC has been under a sword of Damocles – since then – while you all carp about bias and the license fee. The BBC did not choose to end universal free licensing to over 75s, they were forced to.However, since anyone receiving pension credits will still receive one…this will effect few. And the disabled who receive this as routine , will not be effected. Never mind , the end result is the same, the propaganda coup against the BBC is almost complete. We are in Murdoch’s hands.

We have a government that – through planned disarray – has people rebelling into the very situations they rebel against, namely autocracy and neglect. The ONLY reason they’re pussy footing around herd immunity is they know there’s just enough of us left who reject the mass deaths of the vulnerable, and they’re scared an overwhelmed NHS just might wake a few more up. Terrified.

This is why the Internal Markets Bill was so important to them (and don’t wail about oppositions when there’s an 80 seat majority and weasel mouthed Tory “rebels” who are just the opposite) , it enables them to alter, repeal , or create whatsoever law or legislation they wish – should they see fit – without parliament.

By all means reject cry bullying and wokeism, I do. But – FOR THE LOVE OF HUMANITY – stop skipping along with populists and their culture wars. Their concessions are gateway drugs. Sops. Don’t be a useful idiot. Please. Because some of us have warned you, time and time again

*and yes. I said decadent. As a society we are. I’m poor. But I know there’s billions – far worse off than I’ll er be – looking the the US/UK , thinking we’ve all gone mad. Because we have. Explain it to the billions grateful for ALL vaccines, the objection to one that doesn’t even exist yet.

How “woman” means “sub-man”, until men want the title.

“Bbut *woman* excludes women of colour , so we need the inclusive “womxn.“, has become the latest cri de coeur.

No. Put simply , “Of colour” is a suffix type addition , so not exclusionary” as “woman” is already there as primary. Unlike the prefix “cis” which separates women as a sub category .
One adds TO women (of colour , of France , of, of ) the other takes FROM (cis-woman , trans-woman).

Which is why also I hate the imposition of “X” as it insinuates – again – exclusion of women by prefix…the prefix being “trans” (funny how that doesn’t apply to “cis” tho)And the inference that woman of colour aren’t already included in the category “woman” – and this need to be, is racist.

I also hate wombyn. It reduced us to uteri, and – contrary to some assertions – isn’t the ancient spelling. They were “wifman” and “werman” respectively , with men losing the frefix “wer” except in such cases as “werewolf “.

It’s interesting that there seems to be a push to impose this same linguistic othering of women , with the prefix “cis” , with the eventual end game of taking the title “woman” for themselves , and rendering us as a subset – “ciswomen”. Doubly interesting that this push suggests only one prefix is exclusionary, and it’s not “cis”.

Both historically – by retaining the prefix of “wo” in woman , as a subset of humans who are primarily “man” and “men” – and latterly as a subset of woman via “cis” , men are setting themselves as the default , this time by stealing what they’ve linguistically imposed over millennia.

Could it just be coincidental that this is happening in a west where “woman” no longer means “not quite a man” anymore ? In a west where men now glom over us in quite a different way? I don’t think so.

TTIP, Brexit, and the NHS. The tale of a murder plot.

The 2012 Health&Social Care act was designed to open the NHS to the international private market, and remove from the Secretary Of State the responsibility to provide healthcare to the country.

Both these aims, it achieved.

At the same time, we – as part of the EU – were negotiating with the US something called the “Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership” [TTIP], to open further trade links with the US.
However, the rest of the EU had one caveat and – holding firm and together – refused to allow any trade in terms of nationally provided healthcare , however funded.

Did we join that ordinance? Not until after a public outcry forced David Cameron to back down and sign it, leaving him – amongst some – persona non grata , his career in jeopardy.

However, it’s clear his career would’ve been toast had he refused. Hobson’s choice.

“What has this got to do with Brexit?” I hear you ask?Ecouter mes amis, ecouter.
Remember TTIP ? Shortly after that ordinance was signed, talk foundered and TTIP – basically – foundering now healthcare was no longer on the table.

At this point, Cameron’s career really WAS in danger. He had not brought home the bacon to either his paymasters or cabinet (most of whom had interests in US healthcare providers).
Whilst we remained in the EU the knives would be out, and Cameron the target.

So, the right wing press started gentle rumblings, telling the government “the people” (to whom the EU wasn’t even tenth on their concerns as polled) were unhappy. “Wanted their* country back”. That we were “swamped” , that “77 million Turks” were planning to come to the UK**” when it “joined the EU”.

“The people” duly obliged, falling for every nudge – and dog whistle -so adeptly employed by the demagogues of the right wing press and the far right.
Plant a grudge, tickle that grudge.

Cameron was under siege, from the far right, the ERG, his cabinet, and his paymasters.
And he gambled. He announced a referendum he thought he’d win , adding a “advisory” clause as a two way arse covering excercise.
Win, and he could take it back to the EU. Lose , and he could “follow the advice”.

I’m going to speculate he was NOT unaware of darker forces at play. Far from it.
How can he have been , when – even by then – we were known as the money laundromat of the EU, to every Russian oligarch and Middle Eastern “Prince” ?
And – it’s my opinion only – he never intended to remain PM, unless we remained in the EU.
He KNEW this was a gamble, that- even should he lose- his personal loss would be nil.

However, we were now in the eye of the perfect storm. On one side, we had an EU dedicated to both protected healthcare and the curtailment of tax avoidance.
On the other, we had a shadow estate of vested interests, aided – abetted and funded – by individuals standing to make much coin from the break up of such as the NHS(and a continuing ability to launder money) under the gaze of a foreign leader with much to gain from the almost inevitable geopolitical/mercantile vacuum created when one of the world’s largest economies crashes out of the worlds largest free trading bloc.

The result was inevitable. The most audacious campaign of demagoguery, data theft and foreign interference gathered pace, and the die was cast.

Racing forward from that day in June 2016, we have seen an ever frenzied atmosphere than even during the campaign. We have seen successful legal challenges result in death threats, we have seen politicians in fear for their lives (after Jo Cox, they weren’t wrong).
We have seen one PM try and square an impossible circle, all the while undermined by her own.
We have seen another PM (the previous PM’s main tormentor) swerve and writhe , bypassing Parliament and even closing it as necessary, to kick the can down the road , to run the time down on any possible deal.
We have seen unelected PM’s swerve Parliament, we have seen 3 general elections in four years.

We have seen our government behave as though they must achieve what they must achieve, and before everyone notices what they’re up to.

Back to yesterday and – in time – to 1948. Since 1948 they’ve hated the NHS , but – with a ear to popular sentiment – always kept their actions , and intentions, just discreet enough for their lies to the contrary to have the ring of authenticity.
“The NHS is not in danger” they said.
“The NHS is not for sale” they say.
And – yesterday – they voted against a clause to protect it against any sale in any forthcoming deal with the US, because “the NHS is not for sale” .

Remember the “advisory” nature of the referendum?
Added – and I am speculating – because Cameron knew (in my opinion-all the usual caveats) that the interference of a foreign state, would render any non advisory referendum null.
And – as above – he also knew of said.

And all so vested interests could launder money, sell off the NHS , and create a tax haven on their own soil.

*Its lost forever now.
**Turkey isn’t joining the EU. At the pace that’s progressing it’ll take at least a century. And 77million posied to come to the UK? It’s only got population (at that time) of 79million, as *if* Turkey would empty out.

Source for NHS re TTIP and Brexit ? = Vince Cable, google it.

Welcome to the herd, that’s our prize.

I’m going to make predictions .Nudge is working , and we skittish (as in can’t self soothe) plebs are already crowding beaches , begging for Wetherspoon’s to open.Just enough so called “freedom” has been given them , and inch so they’ll take a mile , seeing themselves as “the brave” after a few weeks of “ITS FASCISM OUR BASIC RIGHTS WILL FOREVR GONE PANIC, PANIC NOW”.

Furloughs can’t go on forever, they’ll gently remind us. It’s true , but – thus far – it’s cost us a fraction of the Brexit the ghouls nudged – lied and sold their souls to achieve- has cost. And – let’s face it – the oncoming clustershambles is a perfect decoy for their Brexit plans.

Teachers will be silenced and coerced , as they are in Sweden. Truancy fines will be reintroduced – places withdrawn – and the decision to grant GCSEs by prediction(and performance thus far) will be reversed. “There’s no danger to kids” they’ll say.Leaving unsaid they’re ignoring the most basic tenets of infection spread , that any first year nursing student will know. Leaving unsaid , that – despite schools being largely empty – over 60 education staff have died. Leaving unsaid – as they did with care homes(which I’ll get to ) – that “little data” = none collected. How can there be when schools are empty?The slander of our educating class has already started, unless they’re those who educate in ivory towers few can afford.

Who do you think is nudging us, and why? Is it really for our benefit? Was it ever thus ?

These are the people who knew we were facing SARS, and deliberately halted test and track. (No data = no blame in their twisted logic).These are the people who tried to force herd immunity, and – having failed – are now nudging it.

These are the people who said there was little risk to care homes and residents, because – at that time – infections were low. All the while knowingly sending infected persons back into them. These are the people that allowed the rumour mill to seed the notion that death certificates were being falsified to show higher numbers.

High number we *knew*were “false”, as we pored over every dark notion that supported our growing self concept of victimhood under fascism.

They wanted US to get just fed up enough of our kids , just thirsty enough for a pint – just ghoulish enough over dead elders – to celebrate the bear trap they’ve laid, the coercion they’re about to commence.

So they groomed us in our dark fantasies of fascism. And when we’re released from the “fascist lockdown” , we will have no recourse and no compensation. Because they never wanted lockdown. No capitalist would. It’s deeply inimical to lucre invictus.

It’s not lockdown that took your freedoms – not any worth cherishing – they went long ago, we are nothing but walking £££ and empty eaters.A herd.

David Cameron’s personal tragedy might attract more sympathy , had he not used it as political capital . 

I wrote this on my timeline today . Because ON TOP of trying to solve his party’s psycho drama with a referendum resulting in ClusterBrexit , Cameron weaponised his sick child as a boo shield against a deeply nasty agenda , and now the right are dancing a jig because he finally got called out . And I’ve been asked to reproduce it , so here it is ….

You’ll notice very few references to my progeny on any social media . One or two , but few.
Right , that out of the way , I’ll proceed.
I haven’t fully read the Guardian article , contrary to most lazy tropes this socialist is more likely to read The Times. Anyway . David Cameron . For the first time in my living memory the Guardian has been censured. For what you might ask? Telling the truth. I won’t comment on the tone beyond saying the truth isn’t altered by how we feel about it , or who’s telling it .

David Cameron had zero compunction about trotting out his severely disabled son – posing in contrived shots – to utilise as a boo shield when praising the NHS and concurring with the necessity of benefits and monies appertaining to the care of the disabled The NHS he was already plotting to privatise , and benefits and monies he himself claimed , yet cut as soon as he no longer claimed them . The multi millionaire , David Cameron .

Services and benefits for disabled kids and their carers have been cut to the bone . Disabled adults are being hounded by the DWP to an almost psychic level of attack , with not even the bed bound – and barely sentient – safe from being declared “fit for work”. The misery of the chronically mentally unwell and chronically physically sick is born out in the tens of thousands of precipitous deaths amongst them – again directly related relentless hounding by the DWP – since his election . 

But no . People’s hair is on fire because David Cameron faced the opprobrium he rightly fucking deserved , for presiding over the inception of ALL of that , while using an innocent as his unconsenting patsy in his “I’m human , I really am “ charade . 
You wanna talk about bullying ? You might have missed it , dear reader , but attacks and harassment of the disabled and sick have reached record levels , whilst simultaneously they’re left with few and fewer resources upon which to survive . 
And he did that . The multimillionaire fraud , David Cameron . Parading about that dear sweet child . He lit *that* touch paper , the shiny faced ghoul .”

The Heritage Foundation, and realpolitik. 

Caveat . This is not a comment or insinuation on the character OR motives of ANYONE concerned , let me be clear on that .

The way this has been spun by the opposition was inevitable and I’m getting pretty bored with people trying to place that on feminists voicing misgivings . It’s the nature of the actors and events themselves , which have drawn fire . Whichever position you take , that’s the nature of politics . It was bound to be portrayed a certain way by the inevitable cohort , and an omertà on women having opinions wouldn’t have made any difference . Honestly , it’s like people saying Brexit will be all unicorns and roses if people were just happier about it . Whatever you believe , you gotta know events don’t change just because .

What also bother me – though – is the way people have reacted to/addressed other women’s concerns . The snide Facebook posts , – and tweets – suggesting that women with concerns , would rather see frantic mothers have nobody to go to . The frankly astonishing invocation of Nuremberg , to a Jewish feminist, Julie Bindel 
Nobody suggests that. Nobody . To make it a binary choice of accepting a hosting by the HF (and being seen as concurring everything the HF stands for ) or you’re literally “throwing women under the bus” is spiteful and simplistic . It’s divisive . And Nuremberg? I’m hoping both were unintentional . 

Was there not a single other organisation that could’ve hosted this ? Maybe there weren’t any , any offering? Certainly transparency about this – from the get go – would’ve allayed or prevented a lot of people’s consternation, because c’est la guerre. 
Now , accusations of “policing women” flung at those expressing concern , are simply nonsensical . Firstly , you can’t police anything after the event . That’s called opining on a fait accomplé , not “policing”. 

In fact ,it’s the  telling of people where , when and how they can express an opinion about a public event which IS policing , in and of itself . 

And the terminology . Accusing women of jealousy , backstabbing and gossip are just cheap , silencing shots . Just because a person may be jealous , it doesn’t mean they are wrong . They may be , they may not . Ad-hominem accusations won’t alter that . The straw man attributing of motive , doesn’t erase the validity of a concern , that’s evaluated by its face value . That’s why logical fallacies are called logical fallacies .
Just because a person doesn’t feel safe expressing their feelings in a more open forum , doesn’t mean they’re backstabbing (they might be , but does that make those concerns less valid?)  Calling women gossips ? Really . Because patriarchy never used *that* to devalue or silence the voices of women ?“Shut up ladies” , it says.
And- TBH- I think that Julie Bindel and Helen Lewis (etc) being public figures , are allowed to publicly disassociate themselves from a public action , they’re not asking us to agree and grant permission because that is not ours to give . Public action draws public discussion . We do not have to agree with what’s being said, but people are allowed to speak , because that’s politics .

PS , let me repeat at no point is any of this any insinuation as regards anyone character or motives , merely comment on  events and conversations surrounding.

The action itself ? There’s merit in the argument that whatever we do , we will be slurred as fascist nutcases from the Christian Right . Because it suits that oft reactionary – aforementioned- cohort . 
There’s also merit in the opinion that such actions as being hosted by the Christian Right , for whatever motive (and I am ascribing NONE) (so don’t ) , WILL be seen as the above – which has transpired and NOT because feminists were reacting (shhh ladies you’re only jealous gossips policing ….) but because it was inevitable – as I’ve said before – and some are worried about potential damage . Are we really insinuating the Julie Bindel , for instance – who’s drawn more fire than most of us could bear – is some silly woman with a personal agenda ? I hope not. Merit can also be attached to an argument for lack of transparency re hosts …announcing such details in advance would certainly have thrown petrol on certain fires , unavoidably . 

Whatever transpires , narrative and counter narrative . Let’s hope ours is stronger .

Theresa May , prorogation, Brexit and treason  . 

We are being warned that anything other than the hardest of brexits will result in civil unrest . We are being threatened with violence . Indeed , we are experiencing violence. A needless plebiscite called by a cowardly prime minister has allowed darkness to walk the land , dividing and poisoning , street by street , family by family .And it’s winning .

Stay with me , gentle reader , while I examine how and why , and draw my own conclusion .

A leave campaign relies on proven lies , demagoguery, Russian bot interference , and felonious financial malpractice . The government tries repeatedly to deny the representatives of the people – our MP’s – any vote , from the get go , trying to subvert law by bypassing an act of Parliament necessary to invoke article fifty – threatening instead to use ancient “Henry VIII” laws – halted only by brave citizen democrats and the rule of law.  Then – after two years of attempting to square a circle that cannot be squared – and upon growing public knowledge of this , turns a tiny trickle of boat people into a “national crisis” , thus – again – revving up the real project fear .
But the best is yet to come .

A Tory MP writes to Poland , to attempt to get the Polish right to try and veto any extension of article fifty . Now , should the government decide it wishes to extent article fifty – and I’m not speculating whether or not it should or will , nor do I wish to debate it – then that would be a government decision – made in peacetime – likely subject to a vote . Which makes such actions – those of a member of the governing party – writing to a foreign land to attempt to secure action against that government , and by extension his own county , verging on treasonous. 

But it gets even better . Another member of that governing party – a man of great wealth (we’ll get to *that*) – suggests that the queen uses her “Royal prerogative “ , and ends this government’s term prematurely , in an act of prorogation .  Prorogation means the government is dissolved . Cannot act . Cannot extend article fifty , or seek to put any deal to parliament , or the people, for long enough that – regardless – the United Kingdom will quietly and surely crash out of the EU in the hardest Brexit possible, and shattering the Good Friday Agreement .  That man – if you need any reminding – is Jacob Rees Mogg, . Jacob Rees Mogg has moved all his investments the Eire , which is in the EU. 

But – to me – what’s most pusillanimous? That the opposition are not being allowed to oppose. Hobbled by a leader who continuously swerves party policy . A leader who – out of a fetish revolutionary defeatism and overarching ambition to lead the country through said – has , with a cadre of fellow travellers , continuously aided , abetted and enabled , a right wing coup-d’etat.  Such revolutionary defeatism relies on disaster thusly , that things deteriorate *so* much , for *so* many , that – essentially- society fails , in order that the people turn to a [soviet style] “socialist revival” .

Finally , in an act of treachery astonishing in its panache , the prime minister warns us that any further vote on Brexit will undermine democracy , causing civil unrest .  Apart from the strange logic involved in conflating more democracy with less , the PM has quite elegantly – AND KNOWINGLY- invoked unrest in such a manner as to legitimise the threat , and give such the green light . She has literally marshalled her troops , and holds them as threat above us , in the exact same way common in 1930’s fascist Europe . 

Brexiteers  , I tell you this . When you invoke “Blitz spirit” , you are tacitly admitting there will be a blitz . No amount of “cheerful cockney sparras” bouncing along like Dick Van Dyke on coke , stopped a single bomb . You are sociopaths , wishing this . 

Lexiteers , I tell you this . When you salivate over dreams of glorious uprisings rising from the ashes of defeat , you are tacitly admitting there will be ashes . Who’s ashes , how many ? No amount of triumphant songs telling of great futures under a saviour leader , will erase the dead . No amount of “embracing the storm” will save a single victim of that storm . You are sociopaths , wishing this.

Whoever you are , if this is all an academic exercise , or if you can watch all of this , and still cleave to Brexit – at any cost – as though it’s your own personal Jesus , then I know there’s little point trying to reach you .

But I say this , you and I both know this , that we both fervently wish that I am wrong . The difference is , I’m not scared of being wrong , who doesn’t like unicorns?

You , however , are terrified of being wrong . Because – if you are – the reckoning will not be gentle .
