Say, Does Anyone Remember Talk Of A 'Referendum'?


Poor old Andrea Leadsom, huh? If only she'd joined ISIS Theresa May would have ignored her completely. As it is, she's been cast as a bigoted serial fraud and tax-cheat with a room temperature IQ.

Of course, the fact the Andrea Leadsom has now been appointed as a government minister should in no way be taken as a reason to question the sincerity of these charges.

Besides, if I was Theresa May, I'd be avoiding raising issues about dodgy CVs. Is there any real evidence she was ever actually Home Secretary? Apparently, none of the bad stuff was down to her, but no one can say what she was responsible for. There was the feminazi lunacy like the 'flash rape', but for the rest? Don't ask the MSM: she's totally brilliant, that's all you need to know.

Still, at least the establishment got their girl Theresa over the line, so it looks like the only real change in politics is that we've gone from a PM who was the embodiment of everything MSM journalists would like to be, to a PM who is the embodiment of what they really are. Fat Dave, with his blue blood, family fortune and breezy savoir faire was everything MSM journalists value (thus summing up why you should never trust the MSM to pick a PM), while his replacement is a preachy insular middlewit indistinguishable from any of the two bazillion wimminz writing columns on 'how cheese is sexist'.

Some say this is the Major Years Part II. We should be so lucky - at least the music was OK then. As it is, Theresa May is David Cameron's firm principles mixed with Gordon Brown's charm and personality, but even that's not all of it. The MSM keeps telling us she's a hugely experienced and skilled leader but everyone in Realville can see an uninspired plodding hack with a bunch of red flags: she's the Roy Hodgson of politics.

Quote of the Day

The Daily Caller interviews the guy behind the Conservative Pundit twitter account and - spoiler alert - he sums up what's wrong with modern politics far better than approximately 1 bazillion National Review or Spectator articles.

It's all good, but how about this on just why Professional Conservatives always seen like they're passing razor blades when called upon to actually defend conservatism:
The contemporary conservative pundit is in a precarious position. On the one hand, he agrees with his liberal friends that the United States prior to, say, the 1960s was a frightfully bigoted and hateful place, full of all sorts of phobias and -isms and other such indefensible attitudes. On the other hand, he wants his liberal friends to respect the political and cultural principles we’ve inherited from that evil and benighted past. It’s a weak position, and I don’t think many people besides other professional conservative pundits find it very compelling.
Exactly. Hence why The Donald's jibe about 'low energy' was so deadly. At least the left is going for the big stuff, the stuff they need to 'fundamentally transform' the world, as a famous Kenyan American once said. Professional Conservatives concede all they key issues to leftists but then try to quibble about the exact terms of the surrender.

Leon Brittan Was Not Available For Comment

Mr Plod is not happy with his employers:
For whatever reason, they have either refused to come forward, or have been economic with the truth. 'I am left with the inescapable conclusion that this case could still be solved if only people were honest with us. The fact that they are not is agonising for Claudia's family and they should be ashamed of themselves.'
Yes, it really is a mystery why people are reluctant to cooperate with these guys.
A 59-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder in May 2014 and was later released from bail and a 46-year-old man was arrested in July 2014 on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. He was later released without charge.
Fortunately, lessons were learned and from that day forward the police resolved only to move when they had real evidence of guilt.

Just kiddding!
Following the release of the [CCTV] footage, the four men, in their 50s and from the York area, were arrested on March 23 and April 22 on suspicion of murder. They were released from bail in September to allow time for the CPS to assess the file of evidence and consider whether to bring charges.
So, six months on the hook before they even got the adults involved. Hey, it's not like the Chap Persecution Service sets the bar high on these cases.

Bear in mind that by spreading things out over months the filth has ensured that each of these guys has been left with five figure legal bills. They'll also have had their houses turned over - almost literally in fact as this exert from 2010 shows:
Police confirm they have spent two days searching a house about 10 miles from Claudia's home as a result of a "recent development".
Two days! Either this guy lives in a palace or he got the full 'Lord Bramhall' treatment, aka Smear Theater. In fact, the police claimed to have carried out 1,270 searches of properties in the first months alone. That's not an investigation, that's carpet bombing. Who in their right mind would risk getting tangled up with these guys, when there's a good chance that you'll get your place trashed, your reputation destroyed and a legal bill for £30,000+ once they begrudgingly let your bail lapse after six months?

Of course, who knows what the truth is? They could still get a suspect to court one day, but one thing is certain: when they do, the defense will be sure to point out that these guys do seem quite happy to fixate on literally any guy they think they might be able to stick this thing on, irrespective of such squaresville considerations as 'evidence' and the like.

Attention Peasants! Stop Reading The Wrong Things

File this under true confessions - a liberal whining about Amazon admits their real problem with it:
In its early days, Amazon emulated a traditional bookstore model, with a bunch of editors and critics choosing which books were recommended on the site. Once Jeff Bezos realised an algorithm could do this better and more cheaply, the editorial team was canned. Over the years, this algorithm has been tuned into a supreme money-making engine – shaping the Amazon shopfront to appeal to your wallet via your existing preferences.
The beasts! Using their platform to show you stuff you might be interested in and not what a bunch of Certified Smart People want you to read.

Yeah, yeah, he knows what you people are like: without the guidance of Snootly T Snootlington you morons would be busy reading books with actual plots, believable dialog and likeable characters, instead of books that have a dragon on the cover, but turn out to be ham handed allegories for transgenderism.

While Amazon is accused of introducing people to books they might like, liberals are stopping books being produced in the first place. That's what happens when publishers get colonised by Social Justice Warriors. The agenda has to be shoehorned into everything, no matter how absurd that makes the story. Hence why novels set in the Napoleonic wars always include a female character who can take down six of the Imperial Guard while armed only with a teaspoon.

What the success of self-publishing proves is that a lot of the big publisher's potential customers are saying stop right there: a story where six guys sit round talking about how cool it is being gay is not science fiction, even if they are on a space station.

They Mean It

Legendary Factory Records boss Tony Wilson once asked Annik Honoré, who may or may not have been Ian Curtis's bit on the side, what she thought about the new Joy Division album. She told him it was 'terrifying'.

Huh?

'Don't you understand?' she said, 'he means it'. That's pretty much how I feel about the Corbyisation of the Labour Party - and not just for the suicidal overtones. People talk about the excesses of the left. They're wrong, they're not excesses, it's who they are. It's the whole 'acting like a civilised human being' that the average leftist struggles with. All that's happened now is that Spitty McSpitty has decided to stop pretending.

There's an opportunity there for the right, or there would be if not for our dog in the manger Tory Party. The biggest problem in the country right now is the way liberal activists have been able to weaponise the public sector, while still claiming to be regular Joe, salt of the earth, hard working public sector employees who, gosh darn it, just want to get the job done but they're frustrated by that nasty old witch, Tori Cutz. The truth is that that they're not nice people. They're a bunch of complete wackjobs and a less useless government would call them out on it.
