2015-What's Happening?

I haven't blogged much this year, largely because I can't be arsed. Despite having an unhealthy interest in politics since my teens, if not earlier, I think I'm of a reasonably sunny disposition. I enjoy nothing more than a night troughing and slurping with good friends and generally having a laugh. But there seems to be an increasing number of killjoys and party poopers who take life and, more tellingly themselves, far too seriously. Here's a short list to give you an idea:



Religious nutjobs generally

Militant atheists


The State

Self-righteous campaigning groups (anti-smokers, anti-drinkers, anti-speeders etc)

Socialists really are arseholes, plain and simple. They have no grasp of basic economics and don't seem to realise that government doesn't have any money. The money government has is either ours, that it takes with threats and menace (HMRC) or it borrows. Simple really but they just don't get it,or don't want to get it.

This week saw the fortieth anniversary of Mrs Thatcher being elected leader of the Tories. Some batty socialist dick has designed a poster claiming that today's foodbanks are Mrs T's legacy. Fuck me, Mrs T left office in 1990 you knobs, since then we've had John Major, a wet fart if ever I saw one, and Labour in power from 1997 to 2010. It seems to me that socialism is actually a mental illness and that an unhealthy obsession with Mrs T is one of its most common manifestations.

As I've said it what about foodbanks? Another manifestation of the mental illness that is socialism. A great way for middle class do-gooders to get a warm healthy glow, while making a very visible point for socialists to claim the system is evil and people are starving. I'm sorry, our welfare state is very generous and if people can't afford food it's because they are blowing their dole on drink, fags and drugs or massive great tellies that they seem to spend all day watching Jeremy Kyle on while filling their faces with McDonald's in between slurping from cans of cheap lager and drags on fags. Need some pot? Pop out and flog some of that gear they got from those mugs at the foodbank.

I don't think I need to go into much depth about the muslims. A couple of thousand demonstrated in London at weekend. It wasn't against the murders in Paris, it wasn't against ISIS, it wasn't against female genital mutilation and it certainly wasn't in support of the Saudi blogger sentenced  to 15 years in chokey and 1,000 (one thousand) lashes. Oh dearie me no. It was against cartoons of their 'prophet'. In the process they climbed and sneered all over statues of British heroes in Whitehall. Tell you what, if you want respect try giving your host country a little respect first, then you may actually earn some respect.

And if you are one of those who wails: "These extremists don't represent Islam" I suggest you do a little research.

I'm not going to draw any parallels between Islam and Christianity because there is no comparison. But there are plenty of pious, self-righteous nutjob Christians who piss me off. Thankfully they don't tend to slaughter people who they disagree with. But they don't seem to realise that being preachy and constantly trying to convert people just makes them look desperate and slightly unhinged.

Jesus turned water into wine. So why do religious freaks think alcohol is evil? Would a Jehovah's Witness rather see their child die than have a blood transfusion?

Militant atheists. Well it's just as much an act of faith to believe in God as to not, I can't prove that he does exist any more than an atheist can prove he doesn't. So why can't atheists just get on with their lives without obsessing about something they claim not to believe in? Is it some weird psychological thing and deep down they are suppressing serious religious belief? Maybe that's the case with Dawkins although I suspect he saw a niche in the market and went for a nice little earner and the fame/notoriety he's probably craved since infancy.

Jobsworths. What a pain in the arse they are. I recently went to collect something from my wife's car. I pulled up next to it in the car park hopped out, leaving my door open, grabbed whatever it was from her car and got back in mine. Before I could even shut my door a twat in a cap and a high vis jacket had a dig at my parking threatening to ticket me. The car park was virtually empty. We had a frank exchange and I left. That is a typical jobsworth, thick and incapable of independent thought, in other words commonsense. They're everywhere and seem to be proliferating. We need a cull!

I am not going to bang on about the state. Read this blog and you will see the contempt in which I hold the state.

Likewise those self-righteous, nanny state campaigning groups who are probably funded by you and I from our taxes and are making a fucking good living lecturing and patronising us. I have also banged on about them frequently elsewhere on this blog.

We send millions of quid in aid to India to see them launching a space rocket this week. The only way that could be justified is if they put the staff of groups such as PETA, ASH, Alcohol Concern and any number of other mithering bastards aboard said rocket and never allowed it back to earth. Not forgetting a fair few of the above too. A bit like a reverse Noah's Ark.

There. That feels better.
