    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Saw Corbyn's doppelganger in the Coach and Horses, Soho, a few weeks back. Couldn't resist a sneaky photo.

    They're odds on to win the most seats. The most likely outcome, according to Oddschecker, is no overall majority, and with the Tories having no natural partners in Parliament anymore who would they ally with to form a government? The most likely outcome as things stand right now, therefore, is a Labour-led government, possibly in coalition with either the Libs or the SNP, perhaps both. Of course, it means fuck all right now because things could change drastically in either direction in the next two years, but if you're going to stick those odds up and make those claims... https://www.oddschecker.com/politics/british-politics/next-uk-general-election/overall-majority

    Just think, a mentally ill teenager can legally buy a gun in parts of the USA. In a few months, in parts of the USA, that mentally ill teenager could rape a woman at gunpoint, get her pregnant, and that woman would not be legally be allowed to have an abortion.

    What he'll want to say now is that the Met investigation found he'd not committed an offence for this incident. Obviously the Gray report could throw that defence to the curb. Serious questions need to be asked of the Met here too. I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but it's becoming hard to avoid the conclusion that they are in league with the the Tories, or Johnson at least, and conspiring to do what they can to keep him out of trouble. let's not forget that they didn't even plan to launch an investigation until the pressure mounted, despite knowing from the outset that a number of parties had taken place in and around Downing St.

    Wolves (H) - Sun 22nd May 2022 (4:00pm)

    Going into this game I had no real expectations and thought the players could hold their heads high when we inevitably finish second at the final whistle. Don't think I ever considered the idea that City might lose and we'd draw. The players would be fucking distraught. Come on Liverpool!!!!

    Music that makes you zen.

    I've only recently discovered them, but some of the 'nugaze'/'dreampop' bands hit the spot when I'm looking to wind down, like Beach House, Still Corners, Beach Fossils. Even the latest Slowdive (classic 90s' shoegaze act) album. It's not demanding or life-changing, but it's great background music, and a lot of it has a definite Michael Mann 80s' feel to it for me.

    From Friday: Turns out the law-breaking, lying Johnson is in the clear after all, according to the official Conservative propaganda sheet, and the whole investigation was a waste of hard-earned taxpayers money. Well, that's me told. No doubt some dim cunt in some Godforsaken part of Little England is nodding their head and agreeing with everything here, although, interestingly, the Mail's own comments section couldn't be more at odds with the article's take on events. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10835137/After-four-months-460-000-one-fine-Boris-Partygate-revealed-Mets-warped-priorities.html#comments

    Thanks. The article refers to referrals to the Prevent programme, rather than action that had been taken as a result of those referrals. It also doesn't seem to show how many, if any, of the 'groomers' rather than the 'groomed' had been referred, which is what I'm interested in. I'm glad that action at least seem to be progressing in this area, but the question I was asking is, what differentiates some of the politicians, commentators, bloggers etc who promote far right views that undoubtedly encourage hatred and violence among some of the people who listen to them, and the more established Islamic targets of the police/security services; the radical Iman's and mosques, the speakers at universities, the agents of terrorist groups? Is there a fundamental difference in how they operate, beyond clever wordplay, that allows one to be legal and paid well, while the other is monitored, banned, imprisoned? Or is it a matter of the authorities reluctance (or lack of vision) to broaden their horizons? Interestingly, I read this article, also in the Guardian, today, which discusses the same themes. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/may/18/4chan-radicalize-buffalo-shooting-white-supremacy

    When are the authorities and our media going to treat far-right extremism with the same seriousness as they do its Islamic counterpart? Too often lately we're seeing these plots, targeted killings of politicians, and mass murders just batted away as lone actions by disturbed individuals because they weren't known to have been a part of a group that met, traded ideas etc of the type that we associate with Al Qaeda, Islamic State and the like. Yet, in this digital, multi-media age, there's really no need for a killer to have ever physically met with others, or even to have chatted online on some dark corner of the internet - just to have sat in front of a TV or Youtube night after night legally watching some of the more infamous hosts is enough to set these people on their way. I see the latest killer left a manifesto citing the so-called great Replacement Theory as his motivation - a theory regularly propagated by Republican politicians and Fox News presenter like Tucker Carlson. Reminds me of when that cunt Breivik did something similar, citing loads of influences that were, and still are, pushing their wares in this country, in the papers or on social media. Obviously, the type of cunts sympathetic to their cause would play the free speech card against any clamping down on this dangerous rhetoric. But what really, beyond a veneer of legitimacy, separates the likes of Carlson, Tommy Robinson etc from the radical Islamic preachers that are, rightly, being monitored, jailed and deported where possible when they encourage hate, encourage violence and groom impressionable fucks to carry out their dirty work? Is it just a matter of how subtle or obvious you are? Does a disclaimer against condoning murder suffice when telling viewers how their traditions, their people, their country are being obliterated by the 'other' and the nasty left-wing politicians that support them?
