Belatedly enjoying @michaelgove’s latest little undergraduate essay on the real reasons why everyone voted Brexit. Strangely, the reasons he personally gave them - ie the lies about the NHS and Turkey, don’t really get a mention.
The whole thing is a joy. Just pure @michaelgove. Does it have to be pointed out that Gramsci wrote (**from prison**) about living in fucked up times from the position of *having been fucked up by them? He was not, like Gove, the guy doing the fucking up?
The model we have inherited is “crumbling” says @michaelgove, the exact person who very purposefully set about smashing it all up with a great big sledgehammer of lies.
An estimated 55,000 people have died in the UK and former Real Housewives of Cheshire star @leanne_e_brown, who recently denied her children the HP vaccine, has this morning posted a 15 minute coronavirus video on Instagram, which I have transcribed. A few highlights:
1/ The average number of UK deaths is currently down on the last five years. That is very obviously complete garbage.
If a coronavirus vaccine comes out, Ms Brown will refuse it.
2/ Bill Gates has murdered hundreds of thousands of people and children throughout the world.
Here at the “Brexit celebration” they are warming up the crowd with an old Michael Cockerell documentary.
Responding to some general Black Wednesday exposition, someone has just shouted “Fuck off John Major you cunt.”
And now, regarding Blair: “You should be hanging by a noose you fucking cunt.”
I’m inclined to doubt that was their view in 2003. Wonder what they’ll all think of Nigel Farage in the years to come.
I’m not sure what time the person right at the front, right in the middle got here, to bag the premium spot, but I can confirm, in this, their moment of great triumph, the banner they’ve gone with says “LOCK UP THE TRAITORS.”
Ah...remember when Boris Johnson hired his own photographer to do a photoshoot of himself signing his resignation letter because he couldn't support the deal?
Well, he's changed his mind now. How sweet...
“I have blinked! I have baulked! I have bottled it completely!”
People are laughing but I, for one, grieve for the hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of top quality journalism Boris Johnson has just set fire to there. The solitary column, typed out so many times, all gone. all burned. A national tragedy.
