  1. Wormholing! Better than silverfish-holing…or broken-sprocketing…thanks as always! (And I suspect Cameron is not taking a hand against following the plebiscite because he values “now lie in it” revenge against Johnson and Farage over what even he might consider the nation’s best interests…)

    • My thanks as always for allowing me to repost.

      The whole Brexit thing is a mess — a triumph of lies and the power of misinformation. It has severely dented Pam’s and my hopes for the future; I shudder to think what it’s done for others’.

      I’m also mad with the Blairite infants in the Parliamentary Labour Party for making things even worse than they might have been. The whole ficking lot of them ought to be getting a belated round of potty-training.

      • Neoliberals aren’t accustomed to not getting their way…why else would they so consistently truckle to plutocrats, if not to borrow their clout? Throw in sops to reactionaries one year, sops to welfare statists the next, and it all comes out of the hides of the people in the wash. But if the people wanted protection, why didn’t they just get rich and buy influence, they way the rich have?

        • Too true. I guess history will remember the Blairite defectors as those who, when it looked as if it might be possible to destroy the Conservatives, chose to destroy Labour instead.
