Just when it couldn’t get any worse ….We’re gonna be subjected to a bullshit Royal Wedding that’s gonna be used as some propaganda about national pride, just when Britain’s status on the world stage is being questioned.
But they’re good for the economy people cry, Great!!!!! Britain used to produce things, it had industries; steel, coal, car, now what, a family of parasites? That have the tourists flocking to the country with their bulging wallets ready to spend spend spend in our rip off economy
Ching, ching, ching…….I can hear the sound of the tills, the cheap made in China tat, souvenir shit! All presented on a celebratory porcelain platter. Everyone’s a winner while our government continues to pay lip service to China’s human rights record, except the losers that buy it. Talking of human rights it’s good to see Burma have released pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, now that would be a coalition: The Military autocracy and the pro-democracy movement.
Just how much is this gonna cost the tax payer? The happy couple have said they’re gonna be aware of the economic times when planning the big day, they’re using a second hand ring. I read figures (if they’re to be believed) that security was gonna be £20million, well lets get our moneys worth and take to the streets not in celebration, but in protest against it all, fuck fighting the cuts, lets just fight the c**ts!
I heard someone on the radio saying that it’s just what the country needs to boost it’s morale. Well my moral was boosted the other week when the students smashed their way into Tory HQ and started kicking off. I’m just waiting for the biggest moral boost of them all….when Thatcher dies! We used to have an economy before greedy and selfish politicians and people of all parties and political persuasion fucked it up in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The politicians, The Unions, The Bosses and The People are all guilty, future generations are left with the shit that the past created.
Tory Party advisor and one of Thatcher’s old guard Lord Young made some rather insensitive comments recently about people never having it so good and that this recession isn’t that bad. On one level he’s totally wrong; people are losing their jobs, food and clothing prices are rising. On another level (and I’m sure this wasn’t what he meant) he’s right; people never have had it so good, with their flash cars, TV’s HiFi’s etc with instant credit even those on low incomes have been able to buy into lifestyles above their means. Being rich aint about piles of money and consumer commodities what about self fulfilment instead of self indulgence? Once yer basic needs are met; food, clothing and shelter, the rest is just surplus, but it’s the surplus that makes the profits for the corporations, it’s the surplus that keeps people chained and shackled. We’ve been brainwashed over the centuries to want and demand more. The irony is that if people had led simpler lives in the past and the present then perhaps things wouldn’t have seemed so bad, but they didn’t and don’t, so things have and do. People should have been more austere in the past and not so ostentatious.
Progress means we can’t go back, but just how much further can we go? How much faster must our broadband connection be before Richard’dicky’Branson finally realises that he’s got enough fuckin’ money.
I don’t give a shit if the future Royal came from humble stock, because social mobility aint about what you know, it’s about who you know, it’s another illusion to give those at the bottom of the pile hope that they may reach the top of the pile.
