Right Wing Hypocrisy

It is amazing the rhetoric coming from the right wing regarding the celebrations happening around the country at the demise of Mrs Thatcher. What follows is some viewpoints from the Daily Fail readers when Michael Foot passed away just to highlight the hypocrisy emanating.

Here are what Daily Mail readers said when Labour Leader Michael Foot died, the same people probably foaming at the mouth over remarks made about Thatcher’s death. A brief insight into the minds and sheer hypocrisy of those on the Right, bemoaning peoples lack of respect at this time of “national mourning”:

““I have rarely laughed so much at a poor old man’s passing”
“One less communist hoon, time for a party”
“Pity the red lunatic fuckers can only die once, I could watch it all day.”
“Fuck off Foot and rot in hell.”
“Foot was either a moron of truly epic proportions or he was an evil, evil man. Either way, I see no need to mourn the treacherous bastard”
“Good riddance. One by one the socialist stalwarts are kicking the bucket … C,mon Hattersley you fat fuck, choke on your own dribble.”
“Fuck off Michael – I won’t miss you at all.”
“Anyone know where the traitorous quisling shit is buried so I can dance on the hoons grave?”
“Just another dangerously wrong-headed utopian Lefty of no use to Britain.”
“One more communist dead.”
“After a pretty piss poor week, this is good news at last.”
“Of all the socialist traitors that have stained the UK … he is perhaps one of the most evil, I hope he rots in the deepest pits of hell”
“What took him so long…? Typical sponging leftie, screwing the actuaries to take more out of the pension scheme.”
“If any Labour supporters are reading this blog right now with a tear in their eye may I just say to you… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!”
“So. A 96 year old traitor has popped his clogs. So F****** what.”
“I also laughed my fucking socks off when Tony ‘fluffy foxy woxy’ Banks died.”
“Foot was a communist killer like Stalin he was possibly the most treasonous man in British political history. Lord Haw Haw did less damage.

Thatcher

The difficulty with giving a comment on Margaret Thatcher’s death to the British tabloids is that, no matter how calmly and measured you speak, the comment must be reported as an “outburst” or an ”explosive attack” if your view is not pro-establishment.

If you reference “the Malvinas”, it will be switched to “the Falklands”, and your “Thatcher” will be softened to a “Maggie.” This is generally how things are structured in a non-democratic society. Thatcher’s name must be protected not because of all the wrong that she had done, but because the people around her allowed her to do it, and therefore any criticism of Thatcher throws a dangerously absurd light on the entire machinery of British politics.

Thatcher was not a strong or formidable leader. She simply did not give a shit about people, and this coarseness has been neatly transformed into bravery by the British press who are attempting to re-write history in order to protect patriotism. As a result, any opposing view is stifled or ridiculed, whereas we must all endure the obligatory praise for Thatcher from David Cameron without any suggestion from the BBC that his praise just might be an outburst of pro-Thatcher extremism from someone whose praise might possibly protect his own current interests.

The fact that Thatcher ignited the British public into street-riots, violent demonstrations and a social disorder previously unseen in British history is completely ignored by David Cameron in 2013. In truth, of course, no British politician has ever been more despised by the British people than Margaret Thatcher.

Thatcher’s funeral on Wednesday will be heavily policed for fear that the British tax-payer will want to finally express their view of Thatcher. They are certain to be tear-gassed out of sight by the police.

United Kingdom? Syria? China? What’s the difference?”

Introduction

Hello, bear with me as this is the first blog I have ever done. For a long time, like the majority of residents in Thanet, I have sat back and done nothing while the local authorities, council officials and even councillors have taken advantage of the apathy and used their positions to further their own interests. The final straw for myself was the recent conviction of Cllr Ezekiel for dodgy property dealings.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-21632631  Unfortunately this seems to be just the tip of the iceberg with the police apparently investigating more thoroughly the dealings and affairs of certain officers and councillors and with any luck more will come to light in the future, such as the Arlington House scandal and the ongoing Pleasurama saga. Even a cursory look at those examples would lead to a conclusion that something is very wrong and rotten in the halls of power within TDC.

It is an interesting time in local politics, TDC is effectively run by the small majority of independent councillors and although the council leader is Labour it only takes a defection or two to once again shift the balance of power. Although this situation leads to some very interesting meetings in reality there is more time spent hurling insults and abuse than actually conducting the business they were elected to do. I can only see more of the same with the forthcoming KCC elections looming large.

Which brings me to the awful state of apathy locally. The majority of people I engage with have no idea of who is in charge and for the most part they really don’t care. I will be blogging more in the future so will sign off for now.
