drama free politics


…. will never exist, but I didn’t have a better title. I just want to snark about all of the dumb shit I’ve read today.

First of all – Thank you France for being a voice of reason. That being said, the fact that Le Pen got so far is disturbing.

Over in the UK, the general election battle is well under way. We have to listen to dumb politicians say dumb shit and vote for the least stupid candidate.

First, it was that Jeremy Corbyn had banned Buzzfeed from his campaign trail after they posted an article saying thst he said he’d remain leader if he lost the election. He claims he didn’t but the last few months don’t really make it seem like he’d be willing to go anywhere. That’s even besides the point. The Conservatives are on course to win and Labour/Corbyn, to his credit, has some good policies.

Antagonising Buzzfeed, which is read by the key demographic of people that Labour need to win, is pointless. His advisors need to do better. Fast.

On the flip side, Theresa May’s policies seem to be an energy cap, repeating strong and stable over and over, making the poor poorer and bringing back fox hunting?

“As it happens, personally I have always been in favour of fox hunting, and we maintain our commitment, we have had a commitment previously as a Conservative Party, to allow a free vote

Yes, bringing back fox hunting.

I already think that she’s delusional and has the personality of a prune, but this is beyond madness. We have an NHS that’s billions in debt, nurses are relying on food banks because they’re paid so badly, kids can’t afford to eat at school, there are more homeless people, London is in the middle of a very bad knife violence crisis and the PM wants to…

… bring back fox hunting, an activity that all but screams white and privileged. 

Who else gives a single fuck about fox hunting? MPs can get a vote on that but not the terms of the increasingly ridiculous Brexit fiasco

How out of touch with people can she be? It’s disgusting.

In today’s other dumb news, a UKIP MP suggested that student pick fruit in order to keep immigrants out of the county. I suppose they will find someone else to do the menial jobs that also go to immigrants. Students pick fruits, pensioners can clean toilets? All works out. Ugh, anyway.

Oh, and a Photoshop fail…I guess entertainment is slow this week.

Over in the US:

That rant was followed by:

You know shit’s messed up when the President of the US has a bad, bad case of Twitter Fingers. Sad!

And last but not least, James Comey got his ass fired.

FBI Director James Comey – who was leading an investigation into alleged links between Donald Trump’s team and Russia – has been fired by the US President.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement that Mr Comey has been “terminated and removed from office.” Mr Trump acted on “clear recommendations” from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

James Comey is like that kid who so confident that they’re homework answers are right that they tell everyone else in order to impress them. And then they get an F while everyone else passes.

Comey more or less handed Trump the perfect opportunity to get rid of him by lying about Huma Abedin forwarding hundreds and thousands of email when in reality, it was less than that. Considering that he claims he inserted himself into election to combat claims of favouritism from the same person who’s just fired him, you have to wonder why he’s been in the job for as long as he is. He’s unprofessional and he’s probably going to be the reason why the Russian investigation stalls if it does. 

On that note, despite what Trump claims, we all know that’s part of the reason why he’s been fired. This is what Trump does so well. Deflect and distract. Sally Yates gave some damning information yesterday this is all subterfuge and redirection of the narrative.

And it’s only Tuesday.
