  1. Even Gling-Glo, the mad Jazz album she did quite early in her solo career, I must concede I love how fucking mad it is. It’s going on now in fact, that’ll clear some cobwebs.

    Liverpool tier two, Manchester tier three, most of the north and midlands tier 3. They’ll receive £4 per head per month in assistance. If that wasn’t gloomy enough... ‘What Tory MPs are really upset about this morning is the Office for Budget Responsibility’s “central scenario” at yesterday’s spending round, which was based on a vaccine rollout by the middle of next year — rather than the spring — and restrictions at high to medium until then, leading it to predict massive borrowing and unemployment. The OBR’s “central scenario,” which was used by the chancellor yesterday, appears to envisage most of Britain being in Tiers 2 and 3 until mid-2021, which is much more pessimistic than we were hearing from Johnson and Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty earlier this week, when they implied things would be close to normal by April. On the PM’s 1922 Zoom call, he was asked by one MP about the Guido write-up of this story and why the OBR and Sunak appeared to be at such odds with him and Whitty. A source says he replied that the OBR’s numbers were “too gloomy” and he was in the mood for more optimism.’ For this is the winter of our discontent!

    Newsnight hinting that they’ll be no areas in tier1 tomorrow.

    She’s just been on news at ten, literally just briefed and had to show off about her secrets. She’s being played, they’ll measure the metrics and then give a response based on the feedback. I fucking hate that we know how it works and that it’s so obvious. Edit: She’s sharing her secrets on Twitter now...

    Oh, I assume as much, but she has far too specific detail, especially about London which has been a shitfest down here, for it to be accidental and not convenient. She’s been sent out to test the metrics before tomorrow’s announcement. I’m a big supporter of Auntie, but she’s testing my patience, as LK always has been a cunt, but just moreso and she’s so fucking brazen.

    Propaganda minister Laura giving the official government double think initiatives tonight. Also, conveniently has most of the tier allocation. So it wasn’t Dom who was leaking...

    Milner says ‘boys’ when he’s seething and ‘lads’ when he knows they’ve put a shift in.

    And they don’t even own the money production and every dollar they print raises debt levels which are clawed back in taxation, the surplus of which is handed back to big business and finance in welfare to placate the shareholders, which further entrenches inequality. Its almost like all the concessions made during the founders conflabs are being, and will be further, exploited, by cunts and cunts in the employment of cunts. Wheels within wheels, worlds within worlds, a seat at the table but the invitation doesn’t specify time or venue. AmeriKKKa. Or, summert.

    This might not get me through this... Jester King, brewed with mushroom, sounds weird, but works really well and gives it a savoury finish, which is really nice. Going to need another bottle though by the looks of things! The Irish stuff looks good, I love Boundry, though they tend to be hit and miss and I’ve had a couple of Kinnegar which was alright.

    When you’ve got blinkers on you don’t tend to see further afield. I know quite a few people in relatively senior positions in the unions and their day to day lives just sound fucking exhausting, they’re constantly plotting, scheming and screaming about each other. The unions would have a fucking field day with the shit that goes on there...

    I think you’re thinking of Big Len, who’s been throwing his weight around. The Neu is just looking out for its own and it doesn’t surprise me they took the stance they took, though critical of Starmer, their ire is more towards the Tories, quite rightly. The sooner Big Len & Prentice sort out when they’re going, and figure out who’s going to get the top jobs the better. I know Unison is 50/50 in ‘Corbynista/not Corbynista’ candidate stakes, with one candidate missing out on standing as she didn’t put the any application in and just assumed she’d be in the running, she shouted and screamed and called a lot of people a lot of bad things before she was allowed to put her name in the hat, doesn’t fill me with confidence. Unite/Len poking the hornets nest to settle scores as he/they wanted Bailey. Unison/Prentice support Starmer, that might change when the next person is promoted. It’s all a bit dicey and incredibly counter productive. https://www.google.com/amp/s/labourlist.org/2020/01/which-labour-leadership-candidates-have-unions-and-affiliates-backed/%3Famp

    There was a bit of a hoo-ha about some of the older ‘bigger’ donors coming back now, who they are I can’t remember, but they stopped handing over money because of Corbyn. Maybe it was more attritional nonsense from one of the factions. From August https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/politics/2020/aug/08/former-labour-donors-returning-to-party-under-keir-starmer-jeremy-corbyn Labours finances are fucked either way, there’s a rabbit hole nobody wants to go down.

    Tory Cabinet Thread

    Leninist, I deplore violence. Edit: This is Monbiot’s article this morning which I found despairing, the ideas, not the article which has some nice information in it... ‘The second could be described as warlord capitalism. This sees all restraints on accumulation – including taxes, regulations and the public ownership of essential services – as illegitimate. Nothing should be allowed to stand in the way of profit-making. Its justifying ideology was formulated by Friedrich Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty and by Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged. These books sweep away social complexity and other people’s interests. They fetishise something they call “liberty”, which turns out to mean total freedom for plutocrats, at society’s expense. In unguarded moments, the warlords and their supporters go all the way. Hayek, for example, on a visit to Pinochet’s Chile, said he preferred a “liberal dictatorship” to “a democratic government devoid of liberalism”. Peter Thiel, the cofounder of PayPal and Palantir, confessed: “I no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible.” Last month, Mike Lee, senior Republican senator for Utah, claimed that “democracy isn’t the objective” of the US political system, “liberty, peace, and prosperity are”.’ https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/nov/24/brexit-capitalism
