Yesterday the United Kingdom parliament reached a narrow consensus on the only sensible fiscal path one’s country should take in the teeth of capitalism’s current and most urgent crisis: Blame the poor, tax the poor and disenfranchise the poor. From these three fundamental tenets there shall rise the Phoenix of growth from the ashes of a failed system. And growth there shall be. Growth (exponentially) of the difference between the upper tier of society and everything else. Growth of that tier’s interests being privileged and protected above all others. And the consequent growth of civil unrest whose suppression becomes a self-evident necessity in order to maintain security. Security to perpetuate a system based upon the enslavement of the vast majority of human beings* within it. Security that guarantees the safe passage of wealth between the entrenched-enriched: passage certified and paid for by the rest of us.
Of course the system is spying on us. Of course it has become cripplingly paranoid. Wouldn’t you be if you fucked the same folk over again and again, and they still hadn’t come at you with burning pitchforks? WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY DOING? ARE THEY STILL BUYING THIS PIFFLE? THEY CAN’T BE, THEY MUST BE PLANNING SOMETHING. SHIT – SOMEONE BUILD ME A TOOL THAT ALLOWS ME TO HEAR WHAT everyone’s SAYING!
I still abide by Chris Morris’s maxim that all you need to do for society to have a collective nervous breakdown is select a hundred celebrities at random and shoot them.
To be somewhat of a pussy about this, not to say legally watertight, I don’t advocate violence. Chris never said what you shoot them WITH. But I’d have thought bullets would suffice. After all, bullets are this system’s weapon of choice.
Just the legs, Jason, just do the legs.
* And probably a lot of animals as well. As a humanist they’re not my priority. But after the pig’s anus/ squid scandal – really, I’m starting to think Animal Farm wasn’t an analogy.

Justin, what all of this revolves around is the new world order, or whatever you want to call it.
Many hypocritical mainstream churches support the spread of globalism and imperialism, which leads to the eventual formation of a one world government and one world currency. Mainstream media is used as a tool to program the sheeple by a) using celebrities as mouthpieces to tell people what and how to think and b) by offering dumbed down content which distracts the people from what is really going on in our world.
If the upcoming Scottish independence vote is passed, will it mean that, at some point down the line, Scotland can sit and laugh at the folly of the rest of the UK as it continues to say ‘more, please’ to the pronunciations of our corrupt leaders? For the sake of every Scot out there, I hope so.
I’m not up for celebrity-shooting (although I have a water pistol and have long had the execrable Jamie Oliver and Fearne Cotton in its sights), but I’m up for a good protest. Of course, being a well brought-up but repressed Englishman, I suspect this may only take the form of waving a placard stating ‘Look, this just isn’t on’ somewhere in Central London. But if 10% of the 25m other Brits in the same lower middle-class and not living in the South East boat as me join in, maybe we can quietly start a revolution. Otherwise I fear we are doomed. We’ll never be the 51st state; but we will simply become a country they may as well rename ‘London and The Home Counties’. They’ll be building a wall at Watford, not the Watford Gap.
p.s. I’ll give the cast of EastEnders a good soaking, too.
“look this just isn’t on” lol!! I sincerely hope you can rid yourselves of that vile vermin that is the tory party.
This comment has absolutely nothing to do with what Justin has said on this blog. Just want to say I love his latest twitter photo, thought it was hilarious, it was a great start to my day. As for the Tomintoul whiskey I hope it doesn’t taste like pigs anus. From what I’ve read about it it sounds quite nice, just wondering if it is available in Australia. And by the way Justin I don’t think you are a pussy.
I had to look up what you were talking about with the “pigs anus/squid scandal”. “What will you have sir? Oh I think I’ll have the pigs anus please.” LOL Seriously, I’m not surprised.
Cameron promised that we were all in this together. Could it be he was being economical with the truth? We will soon be the 51st state. Exponential, now there’s a word!
Bless your NHS and do all you can to keep it!!!!
