There’s something fishy going on at Tory HQ…
Stewart Lee

Is the Brexit-Covid government’s framing of free speech designed to make lefties fight among themselves?

Here's hoping.


Meanwhile...are you groovers seeing how it works yet?

An actual MP wrote that. It says everything about the current Tory party that Churchill and Thatcher would have been disgusted.

Churchill said equally daft nonsense about Labour (most famously about wanting to introduce a Gestapo) and Thatcher’s backbenchers were stacked with nutters like Jenkyns. They did understand basic conservative values like executive accountability to the rule of law.

From another forum, from an ex-military twat:
I would happily support a more complete story of slavery, but IMHO that is not what is happening. What we are seeing is a very selective "Black slave White slave owner" narrative, being pedaled by Marxist race baiters and being swallowed wholesale by gullible woke white lefties who need to feel guilty about something. Where is the angst about the million plus white Europeans (including British and Irish) taken into slavery? Where is the story of the Arab slave traders? Where is the honesty about black tribes making slaves of neighbouring tribes? And where are the protests about the countries that still practice slavery? [Crickets].

"Yebbut everyone was doing it" didn't wash at school and doesn't wash here.

And yes, there's modern slavery. Mauretania, infamously (unless they've banned it at last). Farmers roping in homeless people as captive labour out in the fens. Filipina housemaids in parts of London. Those guys working your local car wash in all likelihood. How much does your squaddie correspondent care about to actually do something, or does he just want to deflect responsibility (see comments on feeding starving kids)?

Given the cunt has a stone heart as his avatar, what do you think? Just another frightened old white man, insulated from the world by his "gold plated pension".
