    Elections 2021

    Is it still alright to call racist and bigoted people racists and bigots though? There's a danger that this whole "war on woke" stuff goes too far the other way and people start tolerating and, even worse, appeasing people who have such views? If getting in power means sucking up to cunts who want to say "p*ki" and "n*gger" without any challenge or consequences then is it a power worth pursuing?

    Elections 2021

    A few journos are saying that the London mayor race might be closer than expected, although Khan should still win but it might go to 2nd preferences.

    Elections 2021

    Jayda Fransen got 46 votes in Glasgow Southside, announced to audible laughter from those present.

    Keir Starmer

    A very spiky and flustered interview from Starmer on the BBC just then. Didn't really say much, dodged a few questions and looked a bit red in the face. Any leader of any party deserves more than 12 months to set the party in the direction they want it to go. But, Starmer needs to show drastic improvement and fast. And give the electorate just a hint of a clue about what direction the party will go under his tenure.

    Labour will lurch to the right now. And we'll probably get even more of the dated tactic of "Look at Kier, he loves a pint" photos. I haven't looked at the figures, but was Hartlepool really a case of more people defecting and deciding to vote for the Tories over Labour or just people not being inspired enough to vote for Labour? The reaction will probably be to win back the Brexit voting once Labour voters, rather than to try and encourage back the vote of the more left leaning members of the electorate who had previously voted Labour but now felt abandoned by the party. If so, that seems a risky tactic. Brexit is done. I fear that Labour will never regain those kind of voters. Concentrate on the abandoned voters and the younger members of the electorate who will be eligible to vote by the time of the next general election.

    I've got a strong feeling that I'll be swerving the final this season.

    Vaccine - Hands In The Bucket...

    The second jab turned out to be a (potentially) weird one, for me. I was fine for approximately 5 days after it. Got it on the Monday. The following Saturday, I felt a bit sniffy and muggy headed. I have bad sinuses anyway and have had the heating on a bit more than usual and that kicks them off. And it felt the same as when they do kick off. I felt the same on the Sunday, but had to nip into town to get something. Got the train in and felt myself just feeling gradually worse. Got a few bits in a couple of shops. Was in town for about 20 minutes and my head was muggy as fuck, I was sweating and I then felt really dizzy and like I might hit the deck at any minute. It was horrible. So much so that I jibbed off the rest of what I needed and my day rider as I was near a taxi rank so just jumped in one home. Felt shitty for the rest of Sunday and Monday. Really muggy head, tired, on and off temperature and my maxillary sinuses (the ones on the cheeks) felt really sore and inflamed. I say it was potentially weird as I'm not sure if side effects would kick in 5 days or so after the injection or if I just had a bad head cold/a bit of a sinus infection?

    Other football - 2020/21

    They'll probably win it. But, either Madrid or Chelsea can give them a game in a one off fixture. Plus, if they do win it, it'll still be like every thing they've won lately. Bought. Devalued. Tainted.

    Keir Starmer

    True. The tribalism of it all and the weddedness of people to their position (particularly leave voters) could change the political landscape for years. Starmer could offer great policies that benefit these people personally but you sense that they'd still turn their nose up at him and his party for nothing more than him having been a remainer in the referendum.

    Regarding Hartlepool, it looks like Operation Blame The Last Guy has been launched and is about to go into full swing. Plus, if the polling results do hold up in the actual vote, I can see the NIP lot getting a chunk of blame too as, despite lots of Labour right classing them as a "joke," they're polling at around 6% which is quite impressive for a party that's only been going for a few months. You really can't complain though when you push people away for the party and they, naturally, look for alternative representation.

    LOL! Good one!

    Coronavirus

    The "let it rip" loons always overlook this point. As well as the fact that NHS staff can also contract Covid and become very dead or ill with it (those drawings of them in Superhero costumes weren't real, you know!) and that letting it rip would be extremely likely to cause increased hospital admissions AND increased NHS staff absences. A perfect storm.

    Of course I'm doing it again. I'm correctly describing what happened in Sweden. What do you want me to do? Make things up?

    Coronavirus

    I said it was a lie to say no lockdown and/or to suggest that they just ploughed on like normal. And, yet, people still seem to be implying that nothing changed in Sweden. It did. It's an undeniable fact.

    The Sweden issue is relevant because it highlights the cherry picking and downright dishonesty exhibited by the selfish right wing and libertarian "you can prematurely take our ill and old but you'll never take our freedom" idiots. These clowns have always cited Sweden with the intention of backing up their desire to just let things carry on as before with no restrictions at all, with the implication being that that's what Sweden did. Even though it's crystal clear that they didn't do anything like that. They're such stupid, slimy liars.

    Coronavirus

    I think it depends on how we interpret the term "lockdown." Largely following government recommendations instead of having to have them imposed on you is still pretty much the same thing, irrespective of the tag attached to it. The lie is in the implication that Sweden carried on as normal. They didn't. A small group of people you know and anecdotal claims aren't "Sweden" and the recorded data indicates that there was a sizeable reduction in typical everyday activity in the country, which can be added to the state mandated measures introduced too (https://www.krisinformation.se/en/hazards-and-risks/disasters-and-incidents/2020/official-information-on-the-new-coronavirus/restriktioner-och-forbud)

    Also search my posts mentioning "Sweden" using the search facility. There's a couple more links to show that loads of recorded measures like traffic volume, ATM usage, theatre numbers etc all dropped significantly which it's claimed are indicative of people adapting their behaviour in response to covid and, therefore, not just carrying on as normal. Plus, just mentioning death data also ignores the long covid issue in Sweden, which was deemed serious enough to warrant a news piece, the link for which can be found using the above mentioned search criteria.
