Return Of The Greatest Living Englishwoman

I'm guessing you guys have been thinking the same thing as me recently, namely 'if only we had more chances to hear from Gina Miller'.

Good news, everyone! She's back and she's got a whole book full of Top Grade Super Genius available in all good book stores.... and all good pound shops, if you wait a week or two.

What's it about? What do you think it's about? It's what it's always about: the Everlasting Glory of Gina.
'For having an opinion and holding the government to account and ensuring they abide by the law, it seems I have upset people in an extraordinary way and it has unearthed a part of Britain I didn't know existed.
Yep, the bit outside the M25.

Maybe she doesn't realise this but, as a True British Heroine once said, 'it’s part of our culture to speak out.'

And particularly so when faced with such an unpleasant combination of victimhood and entitlement as Gina Miller.

Just occasionally the mask slips:
If you have money and work hard and dare to succeed you get put into a corner and must be quiet, which I find extraordinary.
 Will no one speak out for the filthy rich? 

This is further support for my theory that the New Left is just like the Old Right.

Seriously: you can just imagine the Caricature Tory Boy character coming out with something like this in some Godawful BBC drama.

Deeper point: this is what multiculturalism and the open borders lobby have done to this country. If someone had immigrated to the US and become filthy rich they'd call it living the American Dream. Here, we have someone who came here and got rich, but she's still a victim so screw you all. She'll take all the benefits of citizenship, but as long as there's one guy in Sunderland who fails to worship the ground she walks on, forget about her giving anything back to this country.

You'll never guess what she just remembered too:
As part of her new memoirs, Ms Miller also reveals how she was sexually assaulted by a gang as a student and how the ordeal turned her into a terrified recluse.
Say what you like about former UKIP leader and fantasist Paul Nuttall, but at least having a PhD and playing professional football are actual achievements, even if not ones he actually, technically,  achieved. Meanwhile every female politician in the country is suddenly recalling that time they got raped, 80% of them by Nigel Farage.

Tories Have Actual Good Idea

The figures are in, and it looks like the Nu Tory quest to sacrifice all their principles in exchange for muh electability appears to have been only partially successful - specifically they've managed to disown everything they once believed in but with pretty much the opposite effect to the one predicted by the Smartest People In The Room. 

Admittedly, the SNP are the only people in Britain who appear to hate the Union Flag more than the Nu Tories, but they're not an obvious example of the electorally damaging effects of patriotism. 

Still, if there's one thing Respectable Conservatives know how to do, it's doubling down on failure. They know what the real problem is: too many patriots in the party:
Ms Soubry  said: 'We are on a membership drive at the same time as the likes of Banks are urging members of Ukip and other hard Brexiteers to join our party to topple the leader and destroy government policy.
'I've called on the party chairman to end the membership drive until we can be confident we are not being infiltrated by people who are not Conservatives.' 
Yes, indeed:  they want to screen incomers to make sure they will make a positive contribution instead of causing trouble.

Sounds intriguing, huh?

Say, I wonder if we could apply this principle to any other areas of public life?

For those of you keeping score at home, the current Nu Tory position is this: strict screening for people who want to join the Tory Party, but not for the guy coming through Heathrow with a stripey vest and a large bag labelled 'Swag'.

At this point, who can deny that the Tory Party is anything other than an employment service for Metropolitan snoots?

Diversity: This Is What It ALWAYS Means

Don't be shocked everyone, but it appears that contrary to the spin from the MSM Eunuch Army, even Disney aren't convinced that the public is crying out for a bold new era of SJWised Star Wars. Otherwise, why so slippery about what it is that the 'Lucasfilm Story Group' actually does?

The always interesting Itchybacca at DSWID rounds up the many - many -  different explanations given for this group's role, and pieces together what they really do. 

Yep, Disney shareholders are paying for a deranged SJW version of Saudi Arabia's Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice

That would be bad enough but as Itchybacca points out, this isn't a group of unusually PC movie people, this is a bunch of PC clowns who are barely qualified to make YouTube videos. They're obsessed with ramming politics into Star Wars because ideological purity is literally the only thing they're bringing to the table.

And that's how they lost $80 million on a Star Wars movie....

You Can Say You Were There The Day 'Electability' Died

To borrow a line from the legend that is Ace, to British Tories the Earth is nothing but an infinite series of hills upon which one must not die. 

Everything is up for grabs with the Tories, all the family silver needs to be thrown overboard lest actually taking a position on anything damage da sacred electability....

....except it now turns out that 'electability' means ginning up phoney baloney scandals.

The sheer brass neck of these people! They've spent years pretending to be rock-ribbed conservatives who are desperate to push conservative polices, you guys, but they just don't think they're politically viable.  Suddenly, the cucks have the chance to try and shaft one of their enemies and all bets are off. 

They don't care about electability, they never did in any meaningful sense of the word. It was just a means to the end of throwing any actual conservatives out of the party so they can carry on treating it as a job creation scheme for vacuous Metropolitan snoots.

Solo: A Culture Wars Story

In amongst everything else going on, Disney have managed the impossible and lost money on a Star Wars movie... quite a lot of money in fact.

Not that it means anything though - which is why so many media SJWs have written about how it means nothing. That's what people do when something means nothing - write 800 or so articles about it.

Curiously enough though, Tom Cruise's Mummy movie bombed without any SJWs writing articles explaining why that didn't matter.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, this is just the latest example of the 'Get Woke, Go Broke' phenomenon. 

True, 'Solo' wasn't the spiteful screech of hatred that 'The Last Jedi' was, but it is still hobbled by woke messaging. Head Hag Kathleen Kennedy's feminism meant not only that the story was weighed down with strang, independent wimminz what don't need no man but also - in keeping with the weird zero sum mentality of feminism -  all the male characters had to be reduced down to chumps and caricatures... meaning that in a movie named after, and built around, the coolest character in the Star Wars universe, he was presented as a goofy, Jim Carrey style character, basically Ace Ventura: Space Pilot.

Still, Han got off lightly compared to another fan favourite.

Yep, these writers have got a whole galaxy to play with and  their idea of innovation is .... weird sex.

That's it, that's SJW originality in a nutshell: man-toaster sex.

And, yes, this is all in a supposed family film. Try explaining that to Junior.  Or don't bother, and  just stay home - just like everyone else did.

All of which is by way of getting to the wider issue. Lucasfilm under 'Kray Kray' KK has adopted an explicitly PC agenda, and especially an obsession with pushing muh diversity. The MSM fawned over them and critics were smeared as out of touch bigots who just didn't get that society had changed, but a funny thing happened on the way to Tatooine. In a better plot twist than anything in Solo, it turns out the public actually quite like squaresvillle white male stuff, such as coherent plots and likeable characters. Who knew? 

Say, that sounds vaguely familiar....if Lucasfilm had only been aiming to sell tickets to jaded, upper middle class media luvvies, this movie would have been a roaring success, but unfortunately for them they had to try and sell tickets to normal people as well. To the point, it turns out that pandering to the MSM and their crazy virtue signalling is no way to get normal people to turn out and support you after all.
