    2019 General Elrection Megathread

    I'm fucking sorry, didn't realise that we were here to "convince" you. So here goes You know that joke about the guy on the plane? The flight attended comes up and asks him what he wants for the main meal. He says "What are the options?" Attended says "Well there are two options, the chicken, and a pile of shit, covered in glass and dirty needles." and he says "How's the chicken cooked?" That's you. You know the state of the country. You've read about child poverty, the sick people dying of heart attacks weeks, days, hours after being declared fit to work. You know the trains are still shit, that we don't have adequate tech infrastructure and that zero-hour contracts are leading to anxiety and depression and often suicide. Rents are keeping people in poverty, 40 percent of the population is priced out of the housing market and racists attacks are on the rise. You know all this. And you know it's the Cons, enabled by the Lib-Dems. And you know why they attack Corbyn's personality. It's because if it was all coverage was policy-based the establishment would be fucked. But he's a bit soft isn't he? His attitude towards Palestine and the troubles in Ireland are a bit too nuanced to be boiled down to TERRORISTS! WATCH OUT! and he has, in this utterly bizarre and changing political landscape ended up in the presence, or on the pages, of people who are anti-Semitic. So go ahead and vote how you want! Order the shit on chips mate, and then blame a bunch of internet weirdos you've been deliberately antagonizing for a decade for "not convincing you"

    Oh yeah, that reminds me. Before the gig the promoter contacted me and was like "Do you have any visuals to project." It was a bit late to make anything so I said "Project shlock-horror classic The Brain that Wouldn't Die. I've got the DVD" and he was like "nah it's okay, I'll find it on youtube" So he put in on while I was playing, but unfortunately every two minutes there was an advert (I didn't know until afterwards) and the missus had to get up and keep on forwarding passed on the computer. /edit, actually I don't know how often

    Found a Peter Falk biography in the bargain bin of a bookstore on my lunch hour just now. Actually trembled picking it out of the bin. Yes, it's called 'Just One More Thing' but look at beauty of these chapter titles:

    THUR The Love of God!

    More on the De Burgh LFC connection: Liverpool's German defender Markus Babbel (below) has been struck down by Guillan-Barr syndrome, the effect of which is numbness in the legs, almost to the point of paralysis. He is currently receiving treatment in a German hospital, where he had a surprise visitor recently. According to Ananova none other than Chris de Burgh walked in to his room, singing "I've never seen you look as lovely as you do tonight, I've never seen you shine so bright". De Burgh, apparently, opened the bag he was carrying and produced a large crystal lamp, informing the bemused player that "this will create a better atmosphere in the room and support your well-being". The popster then closed his eyes and stroked Babbel 's legs but, despite feeling some "warmth", the footballer was not healed. Undeterred, de Burgh explained that Babel needed "a longer, more intense treatment", adding that he "discovered 25 years ago that I have a very high energy potential and sometimes I can heal people with my hands"

    I was just about to start a thread called 'Hurst Peak' and blather vaguely about an obscure mountain in Antartica and what it must feel like to experience the eerie quiet of nature's majestic indifference [/Werner Herzog voice] to our relentless quotidien. Walking around imagining Werner Herzog is narrating my every move is probably the most Camus-like thing I do on a regular basis.

    I think it's partly because of conflicting concepts of what leadership is. On the right, there's the tradition of believing that they are essentially born to rule. The divine-right of kings for instance. Or the idea that breeding, education or wealth gives them the right to make the rules. Whereas on the left it's all about representing the people, the commoners. The leader is a spokesperson. I think that this is massively reflected in the concept of politeness, this idea of social rules encoded by "higher" society that should be followed else you be thought of as an outsider. This is why a right-winger can criticize someone for being "rude" or "insulting" for swearing or raising your voice etc, but still feel fine about supporting an unjust war or humiliating disability assessments blah blah. The first one breaks the rules, the second one is them enforcing the rules. This is VERY reductive I know. But it kind of starts to answer how someone like Trump or Johnson exists. Johnson might genuinely not see himself as a racist. The language he uses is probably within "the rules" , and burkhas are just against social convention.

    The boy ate chicken soup from the can and the man ate chicken soup from the can and they agreed the chicken soup was good. A wind whipped up from the east and they tossed their can in the dancing flames before them as they knew all things must be accounted for. Cormac McCarthy-The Road.

    this is my experience of racism: i went on a course years ago (about 15 yrs ago, actually) and we had to do an exercise where the attendees were paired up with someone they didn't know and had to have a chat for about 5 min. at the end the course tutor made us guess the answers to certain questions about the person we were talking to but, crucially, not based on the topics of what we'd spoken about, e.g. what's their favourite place, favourite song, favourite food, favourite film, etc. Anyway, I was paired up with this black fella ... for food he guessed "chips" and when the tutor questioned it he said "he's a white bloke, course he likes chips" and he got called out for being prejudiced! anyway, got some chips on my way home.

    THUR The Love of God!

    Made a big mistake yesterday - allowed a newspaper columnist/literary type friend from Twitter to come and stay the night so he could check out Leicester and stuff. I’ve known him for years through twitter and Facebook, but only met him a couple of times before and relatively briefly. Oh my god, he’s absolutely chronically, painfully annoying in a way that privately-educated Oxbridge graduates can only be. I must have the social stamina of a titan to have coped with that without screaming at him. He’s really really loud, has some sort of awful wet/slurry/moist speech impediment which rendered him almost impossible to understand after 1.5 bottles of wine and 4 pints, and his constant lengthy anecdotes were on the verge of making me weep with boredom. Cannot describe how bad it was, honestly, but he was having a whale of a time. I’m hiding in the bedroom - he’s still asleep in the living room. He was in some sort of manic fug (aided by repeatedly sneaking off for coke, which he thinks I didn’t notice) because some unfeasibly beautiful ex-model he’s been seeing has dumped him. How do men like him get laid at all, let alone with such hot and intelligent women? The entire private education system is a scandal.

    office was broken into in the night (we're on the 10th floor!) and all the laptops have been swiped, stuff chucked about a bit and a safe smashed to pieces. cracking up a bit bcs on top of all that was a note from the cleaner saying she couldn't clean as the place is too messy (but didn't bother mentioning to anyone about the debris strewn about the place).

    Did you see David Walliams fawning over her on Twitter? Yeah mate, but you're a shit comedian who writes mediocre Roald Dahl rip offs for kids who don't know better. Of course you don't want to pay more tax to see those kids getting a decent education or they might stop reading your unoriginal fart joke based shite.

    Though one time I used the term "mansplaining" at a family dinner, and one of my sisters asked what that meant, and the other one explained it to her, but she got it wrong and there was literally nothing I could do.

    Yeah the notions of decorum and civility is definitely a big thing on the right, it's a perception thing. That's why you get those 'Jordan Peterson Calmly Destroys Feminism' YouTube videos in the first place - they're trying to say, look, this smartly-dressed man is malking his arguments CALMLY, this means he's rational and logical, not like those angry lefty protesters over there with their shouting and their blue hair.

    Going to a DWP assessments is one of the most distressing things I've ever done, I'm thinking of one in particular (being careful not to compromise confidentiality) where an older woman had to describe distressing and humiliating symptoms to a young man who showed no humanity or compassion, he didn't even look up from his computer. He was a physio so I don't know why he was qualified to assess mental health anyway. No point to this post, just more of why I hate the Tories

    You already weren't voting for him and didn't like him tho, this is just a pathetic excuse to justify the fact that you're too embarrassed to just say you prefer things the way they are and don't really want someone to introduce actual left wing economic policies, there is genuinely no shame in the latter but the former makes you look like a right fucking mug. No offence!
