It comes as no surprise to any poor bastard who has any connection with the viewing the news – in any format – that in today’s political climate we have a level of self-delusion that goes beyond the merely confused and into the realms of insanity. When you’ve got Theresa May banging on about achieving record levels of economic growth after Brexit despite the fact that no trade deals have been done, Putin and his toadies denying they’ve been slipping lethal cocktails of nerve-fucker to double agents in retirement, and Trump just being a total tallywhacker with everything he does and says, you have to start questioning the very nature of reality.
Or I should say, ‘reality as far as the fuckers in charge are concerned’. There’s seem to be a wall of ego erected between what the rest of the world sees, and what these tubes see. It could be because the witless fuckers only hang around with the ‘yes’ people who spend day and night crawling up their sphincters, or it could be because they’ve categorically convinced themselves that the lies they’re peddling are true. Or it could be because they’ve latched on to the idea that a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth, which it does to some grockles. But what price sanity when the distortions become policy? How much are they fucking with the nature of political progress when they can spout out any old saggy ballsacks and be greeted with a bunch of noddies all sucking up to their bullshit?
Lies are an intrinsic part of politics. Anyone who’s old enough to remember the Nixon days knows this, or remembers Thatcher peddling her distorted unemployment statistics, but back then there seemed to be less stomach by the majority of the political class to revel in this crap. Nixon got impeached, Thatcher got booted, and more bullshit entrepreneurs filled the gaps to have their egos masticated by whoever was buying their line of snake oil. Trump should have been impeached donkey’s yonks ago, but so ingrained is the political greed from his supporters that they’re willing to go against factual reality – sound-bites, photos, etc – to prop up their wilting penis of a President.
Voice has always been given to the insane in politics, but with a certain amount of derision. Now the gibbering idiots like Jacob Fucking Rees Fucking Mogg and Boris Bastard Johnson Knob are being given access to many media pies, and their divisive and retrogressive views are lathered with plenty of airtime, so the nodding dogs who earwig on their crap can receive their pampering and believe that what these gimlet fuckholes say is the truth, or that their opinions should be cossetted and words taken seriously, when in reality they should be roundly mocked for being goggle-eyed delusionists.
So it goes. Politics has always been a playground, but the big kids used to be in charge. They’d give you digs and nick your pocket money. Now the screaming toddlers who want it their own way are pulling the strings, and some fuckers nicked the keys so we can’t get out of the kindergarten. We could be fucked unless someone with a reasonable head turns up and boots these idiots into the horizon. Let’s hope the lash-back against these pricks produces someone who at least makes a passing gesture to common sense and maturity in this.
