'Spiked' make me feel better about Boris Johnson

Libertarian blowhards Spiked on Boris Johnson's year.

Oh Spiked. With enemies like you, who needs friends?

That could be headlined 'Complete wankers still complete wankers'. Are they always like that?

The Troll said...

Yes. Other 'HATED' figures in their Christmas special include the police and polar bears.

Perhaps we could stick them in a cage with the latter and then deny them the former.

My five year old at least has an excuse for acting like a five year old. He's five.

"In the 1980s there were lots of agitprop plays about the impact of mine closures on working-class communities..." - I don't remember any. I'd like Munira to name them.

Spiked are a sad bunch of misanthropes; all they ever seem to do is attack other middle class people for allegedly hating the working class. And that list shows their criteria for judging others is simply based upon whether or not that person is "miserabilist" or unbridled-Jez-Clarkson-for-PM-excessivism. Ferraris for all! Yeah, that makes sense.

Fucking assholes.

Do you know the Diary column in Private Eye? Surely Brendan "the cunt" O'Neill is overdue for a good skewering on that.

The above were me, like.

The Troll said...

I had a feeling it might be you Asquith ;)

asquith said...

No, hold on. That at 16:24 wasn't me, my comment isn't there at all. What's that all about?

I do agree with 16:24 though...

asquith said...

Don't know if this was sent either.

Funnily enough, 16:24 isn't me, & my comment has totally vanished. I am happy to put my name to what s/he said though, as it's totally right.

What I was trying to say in my comment, which hasn't appeared, is that the Diary section of Private Eye should parody Brendan "the cunt" O'Neill. They wouldn't have to put any work into that as it would be so easy.

The Troll said...

Whoops. I'm not sure what happened there. Your comments have appeared now for some reason.

O'Neill is definitely ripe for parody.

asquith said...

It scares me how they all have the same opinion. This network of people around Frank Furedi is a bit of a joke, & I would laugh, but it is disconcerting that they're so identikit.

There was also something else I was intending to say, but I've totally forgotten it :)

Take more sherry, it eases the brain.

I'm drinking Pernod now. I won't have too much, as I don't want my family seeing me in a state, but just enough to keep a buzz.

Merry Christmas to you & anyone else reading this, & hope you got what you want. I haven't got all my presents as feckers are coming round at different times of day & dropping them off. I'm happy that both my parents like what I got them. It's good to get people things they want & like, but wouldn't have heard of normally.

asquith said...

That was me. This comments thing is a bit shite...

The Troll said...

It is yes. Merry Christmas everybody!
