    Politico asked a bunch of public figures what got them through the year:

    Have we seen this?



    A friend of mine has her ceremony in early January. I said please deface it in amusing fashion, but she's going to save it in case we get another toilet roll shortage.

    Liz Truss wrote in the DM today that ‘Equality should be for everybody’ which is basically just a fancier way of saying ALL LIVES MATTER.

    What a load of dross. Real equality happens by addressing the north/south divide. :eyes:

    In short that article was written simply to get gammons foaming at the mouth.

    Too many woke warriors policing our vocabulary and enforcing their diversity agendas.

    Too many schools teaching about racism and gender.

    Too much identity politics and virtue signalling.

    FUCK OFF

    The PROBLEM with EQUALITY is that it’s not BENEFITTING WHITE PEOPLE!

    That's the dangerous bit, isn't it? The equality you think you want is WRONG, you actually want this other stuff (which we won't do anything about EITHER but shh).

    That's exactly it! Right in one sentence! "Equality? Well, alright, but what's in it for me?". Classic Britain.

    Did everyone else get lessons in racism and sexism at school in the 80s? Because I certainly didn’t at school in the 00s!

    She mentions DEFENDING WOMAN’S SPACES as well, was it known she was a TERF already?

    Yes. As usual in the Johnson era, they were vague until they saw which way the papers decided to run and then took a taxi to the front.

    Liz Truss: Identity politics is bad, unless the identity is 'white working class', 'adult human female' or 'jewish, but not the George Soros ones'.

    I guess it's to do with Brexit

    It's also the Lib Dems' lowest poll % since 1990, apparently

    AGHAST that anyone would vote Tory again after the last year let alone 43% of people!!! No wonder they feel so emboldened to be HORRIBLE CUNTS as there seems to be such an entrenched and significant voter base that will vote for them no matter what.

    Did literally half of the Lib Dems' voters return to the Conservatives as soon as Brexit was done? MESS.

    Invisible Lib Dem leader to RESIGN.

    If you popped that on one of those electoral map calculator thingys it’d put them on only 330 seats and Labour 237 so it’s HARDLY a disaster.

    Unfortunately a Brexit bounce(UGH what a term) was inevitable.

    But it's also worth mentoning prior to December 31st most pollsters had them both hovering around 40% interchangeably. That calculator thing had the Tories on 307 and Labour on 255.

    The constituency boundaries are being reviewed this year aren't they? So does the seat calculator mean much?

    Well you have to take what information you have at the minute. It depends WHERE things change of course but I’m sure they’ll be beneficial to the Conservatives. Any non-Tory voter hoping for anything more than hung parliament in 2024 are on a hiding to nothing anyway.

    So after Ben Bradley said the parents in his constituency were smackheads trading their school dinner vouchers for hookers, the Tories have outsourced the job of providing hungry kids with food.





    "What's for dinner mum?"
    "A coin bag's worth of tuna shavings."

    Heaven forbid we fund meals for poor children and one of our mates doesn’t skim some cash off the top!

    Tuna in a coin bag is fucking disgusting. They aren't food safe, for starters, and what the fuck are they supposed to do with a NUBBIN of carrot.

    Fucking Hell. You could get a fuckload more than that for £30 if you were given a voucher. Of course, this way only £2.30 actually goes to feeding the child and the rest is straight in the pocket of whichever of Ethel de Pfeffel’s pals is running the scheme.

    That sort of spread may be suitable for Madonna's VIP ticket holders, but not poor families! But nothing's a surprise any more is it. Will they even bother trying to wriggle out of this one?

    Quarter of a red pepper, as well. I can just see Gavin Williamson staring at a full red pepper and thinking 'that'll be good for four poor kids'.

    The carrots aren’t even toppy! It’s shit food without even fringe entertainment value should any of the kids belong to a gay-interest hate site.

    Presumably every third family got the toppy bit. :bad:

    The tuna in the coin bag is actually rank. I'd laugh if it wasn't so desperately sad.

    i think that’s the problem Tories have with free school meals. There’s no way for them or their private school chums to profit from it.

    I just want things to change, this surely can't go on. Their contempt for poor children is so Dickensian. We STILL don't have devices for all our children, despite the fact that this has been going on for a year, and despite the fact that a week ago threats were made by Gavin Williamson if children didn't get 5 hours of online learning a day.
