Millennial Lies By Greedy Boomers?

A lot has been made of how the young find Friends homophobic shite and Only Fools and Horses racist shit. Regardless that my own view is closer to shit regardless of modern mores. Nonetheless it’s worth reflecting that this story like much of the anti Muslim and poor hating in the media is based on very little. There has been no poll or vote just 1 or 2 comments.

This covers much of modern day chattering nonsense on all sides where often a single example or series of comments is used to label entire generations, political viewpoints and religions. This is not the 0% poll of say UK Muslims who thought Homosexuality was moral and 52% who thought it jailable. That was a genuinely chilling fundamentalist view from a sizeable minority.

The point is we need to avoid instant opinions on groups with nothing more than anecdotal evidence we have. There is far more evidence our entitled olders don’t give a shit for anyone else. Indeed I find much of the young’s view of the world and difference at worst naive but mostly uplifting.

The Extreme Middle

As someone whose views can be interpreted as to the left or right of the spectrum depending on the issue I do find the use of the word extremist funny. After all on the left most people called extremists would be centrists to some of my friends. Also since when to anyone but a Septic did universal education, water and health care become extreme anyway?  Continue reading “The Extreme Middle”

Complete Shit, Sherlock

The continuing ability of the BBC to waste money on garbage at the expense of the poorest workers came again with amazingly after the last series of 3 descended into poo another series of Sherlock. The series opener showed why Brits are so poor at drama. Ok write the 3rd series off kill off the hitman wife of Watson 5 minutes in. But no like ‘leftists’ [relative] pretending there is an epidemic of ‘hate’ crime and surfeit of their own virtue they doubled down and added a baby. They spent the whole of the episode writing out the entire mistake of the 3 rd series and the baby is still alive.  Continue reading “Complete Shit, Sherlock”

Losing Your Shit And Perspective

It struck me before President Trump has done a thing the ‘Liberals’ in the States have lost their shit and thrown lots of stuff at someone inaugurated often for stuff Obama has done too and Mrs Clinton would have done – exclude Mexicans, deport 3 million, appoint his own judges, appoint clowns from Goldman Sachs etc. Reality is best case is his economics works better for ordinary people but personally sounds like a new Labour redux with seemingly positive policies reduced to ashes later on by the need to supply financiers with a rentier income see NHS. Yep Trump is considering Public Private Partnerships with Govt backed bonds when Govt can borrow at below 2%! Continue reading “Losing Your Shit And Perspective”

The War Has Started In UK You May have Missed It

I note that establishments are talking about banning fake news so no British newspaper would be allowed? They [central banks] also want to ban cash. People miss that none of this will improve economic performance, quite the opposite with cash ban, but you only need 25% to control most democracies. UK TV is already essentially under Govt control by Offcom – stations are not allowed to say when they are censored either. You will also note as per snoopers charter this as much as one can tell with Labour is supported by both main parties.

Left squabbling over who is racist and pronouns is rather funny in this context. In the sense of funny but not funny a bit like Mr Corbyn and McDonnell really.

The point is that with money now ‘printed’ for our rulers and media under control in UK they don’t need a thriving economy just control. Indeed Putin would seem the ideal for the West’s rulers?

The World of Binary

How can anyone support Mark ‘Chauncey’ Carney a bubble blowing dickhead. Or Mrs Clinton a corrupt lying neo Con who is wrong about almost everything and as big a minion of the Sauds as you can get. Or the EU that undemocratic neo Liberal festering scab on the world fresh from killing 1000s of Greeks and condemning many of the rest to unending poverty? Continue reading “The World of Binary”

TUE TUE Gum Drops

The current Sky revelations on Bradley Wiggins show him up as being less than honest about his past. Yet they also reflect the common failings of those who claim to be holier than though and in many ways cut through the British schtick of fair play and gentlemanly conduct.

The journalist and determined anti influencer Paul Kimmage had already shown in an interview with Chris Froome last year that athletes were not so much anti doping as anti those who gained an advantage by going beyond the arbitrary line or rules as some call them. As said Sharapova doped her whole career yet she only became a dope cheat for 18 days and probably inadvertently. Are all sporting asthmatics dopers? Continue reading “TUE TUE Gum Drops”
