ukpol rwanda
Tonight the MPs will debate and vote upon a law to send refugees to Rwanda. Not people who they claim aren't refugees. Just actual refugees.
They sold it as "for processing there" initially, but in fact it's just send them there never to return.
At a cost of over a million pounds per refugee.
Since the courts found that Rwanda might not be safe, the law they will debate declares that it is in fact safe. Even if a civil war breaks out tomorrow, even if a volcano turns the whole country into a lava-floor, it'll still be legally safe according to our MPs.
They seem to think that the Parliament is some kind of supreme body able to define and enforce the nature of truth, rather than being just one of many institutions of state which are set up to compete with checks and balances in order to prevent tyranny.
I can't think of a more obvious demonstration that the house has lots it's wits entirely and has become crazed with power.
They think they can legislate truth, and should have no legal restraints upon them.
You'd hope an election soon will remove them, but the opposition, Labour, are fine with it, so long as it doesn't include our military collaborators. They have an amendment saying it's fine to send everyone I guess, except not those who collaborated with our military.
What a broken country. We need to disband Westminster, really, it's become corrupt beyond redemption.

Just taken a FrecciaRossa high speed train from Rome to Florence. A distance of about 275km (~170 miles). It took 1hr 36 mins and only cost me €23. Not to mention comfortable seats, decent fast WiFi, clean toilets. …

I'm hearing that there's spare capacity in the private health sector even as NHS patients are on waiting lists!
If this is true the solution is obvious: Nationalize the private health services and put them to work on NHS patients!

Starmer matches Conservative pledges on defense spending you say?
Crikey. Sure is good to see what good opposition looks like. I remember in the days when Labour would vote against Tory policy.
"That's not good opposition" these people would say.
Confusing though. Looks a lot like furious agreement.

How it started... How it's going....
We seem to have gone from "Defend Migrant Rights" to "More Migration Cops".
We have gone from "Economic Justice" and tax-raises to "Economic Stability" (which presumably means "no change")
We have gone from "Radical devolution of power" and "Social Justice" to "Crack down on anti-social behaviour"
Common Ownership, Union Rights, and Promotion of Peace dropped entirely.

Alrighty then, gonna suck even more to be sick on Normal Island in the future.
Join us again next time when the Nasty Party will be taking a wrecking ball to the country while scapegoating some other distressed minority in a desperate attempt to drum up some votes from their reactionary base.

What, what? I'm hearing the new suggested government recommendations on sex-education are to not talk to kids about how porn isn't real life until they're /thirteen/?
Here's hoping the parents step in and tell their kids that porn isn't real way before the schools get around to it then.
You definitely gotta tell 'em that before you give 'em internet.

Read James OBrien's "How They Broke Britain" in which he names the ten people he blames most for how screwed up everything is now and dedicates a chapter to each of their various corrupt shenanigans.
A fairly brief and bitter read, the villains here are mostly indeed villainous and their corruption and malevolence is clearly described.
Have some issues with his chapter on Corbyn and the lack of any confutation of OBrien''s own bit-part role in the mass smearing of Corbyn and the Labour party during his time, but it's certainly true that Corbyn (and more importantly the reactions to him) was a big part of the whole processes that lead Britain to the terrible situation it's in now.
Felt like I already knew just how terrible all these people are but probably a good summary for anyone who's clueless and wants to understand how we broke this country.
