Tories BRAG about GETTING ALL THE BIG CALLS right!!

BLOODY HELL!! They are rewriting history!!

So far they’ve got nearly all the big calls wrong!!

They negotiated an appalling Brexit deal that is costing us a fortune!!

They dithered and dithered on Covid and chucked infected people into Care Homes – killing tens of thousands unnecessarily!

They wasted tens of billions on useless apps, T&T, and useless PPE.

They handed out billions to their chums.

They have illegally screwed money out of donors for various promises.

They have been courting Putin’s money and even putting Russians into Parliament!

Then we have the illegal lobbying, Partygate, second jobs, sex scandals, cash for secret meetings, Russian Tennis…….

IF THIS IS WHAT IS MEANT BY GETTING ALL THE BIG CALLS RIGHT then I’m a warthog!!

When questioned they have no answers. They avoid all scrutiny and hide in fridges. They hide away so that they are not accountable for all the crimes and incompetence.

The one big call they could get right is to resign!!!

What are you Going to do Johnson? Caught out lying and lawbreaking!!

He’s already had one fine for lawbreaking. There are probably more to come!!

Once the MET have completed their enquiries the full Sue Gray report will be released. It will document the entire gamut of law-breaking parties, bring your own bottle, fancy dress, quizzes and boozy law breaking endorsed by Johnson and his arrogant populist liars.

Will he ever act like an honourable man or simply brazen it out once again?

Can government ever get any lower than this? Incompetence, lies, soundbites, arrogance and lawbreaking.

When are the media going to stop pretending to be unbiased and start to call him out!

We have an utterly dishonourable, lying, lawbreaking clown as a leader! He needs booting out!!

More Lying Distraction!

Somehow the Tories want us to believe that a working break for a meal at an important by-election meeting is comparable to a series of twenty-odd parties in Downing Street!!

Party hats, bring your own bottle, party games, booze smuggled inside shopping trolleys equates to a curry and bottle of beer at a critical by-election planning meeting.

Are people that gullible??

Wouldn’t it be great if Starmer was found to have breached regs? (which he won’t be) – He’d resign immediately and show up all these lying Tories for what they are.

Poetry – A New TV

A New TV

Our whole culture has gone soft. It’s obsessed with trivia and distraction. There seems no depth or purpose.
I turn through the three hundred channels of repeats, trivia, game shows, old comedies, banal gormless morons, celebrity pricks, extravaganzas, musical dross and material of the lowest common denominator, in search of something profound, interesting or worthwhile.
I rarely find it.
We are fiddling while the world burns.

I’ve got a new TV

It’s bigger than me

It tells me who I want to be!

It’s got 2300 channels

And all of them crap

In super 3D

HD with Soap overlap.

I can watch the Game Shows

Sport and MTV,

Filling all my hours

With tasteless gravy.

My new TV is great

It feeds my head

With everything forgettable

Where absolutely

Nothing

Of any consequence

Is said!

Distraction – a poem about how the establishment distract us.

Distraction

 

They turn us against each other

Brother against brother

To keep the attention

Away from them.

 

Speaking words most solemnly

Reciting law and verse religiously

Hypocritically

Spouting Amen.

By turning us against each other they turn the attention away from what they are doing.

Meanwhile they are bleeding us dry.

The establishment have rigged the system in order to funnel profits into the pockets of the rich.

They would rather we didn’t notice.

They would rather we were distracted.

They would rather we fought among ourselves.

Poetry – Distraction – being driven to distraction by the shallowness of life.

It would appear to me that there are pressing issues that we should all become involved with.

A small number of people are setting a tone, guiding us down a path of growth and profit. This is devastating the planet.

Politics is not pointless. We are not impotent. We can make a difference.

This poem was written in response to the shallowness I saw around me – the distraction that prevented people from engaging with anything that had depth and meaning.

TV and fun can be worthwhile and expanding; they can also create airheads.

DISTRACTION

 

A fuck   A film

A smoke   a joke

A smash  some hash

A pill  a thrill

 

Is all it takes to distract you

To stop you from having to think

And life goes by

Outside your window

As you pour another drink

 

A grab  A deal

A leer  A feel

A Crash   A Bash

A Breath   A Death

 

Is all it takes to fill your mind

Like a tennis ball in a vacuum flask

Bouncing in your head

Disturbing nothing

So you don’t have to ask.
