You’re not right: Alt-Right isn’t far-right… Right?

Oh look, another mainstream media misnomer, just like “troll.” Here we go again.

Before we begin,
1 – I am in no way defending the actions of that man. He murdered a public servant in cold blood for political reasons. The definition of terrorism. I am talking here about the continued misuse of the term “alt-right”
2 – You have to entertain the wild notion that you could be wrong in your preconceptions about the Alt-Right

Since I’ve Been Gone

The country decided that chopping off its nose would teach its face a lesson about how to smell.
Another unelected person becomes PM (but the mainstream media doesn’t moan about it this time for some reason, anyone would think that certain party donors own the media…)
Turns out the brexit campaign was full of lies. Who knew? Oh wait, those of us with more than two brain cells to rub together
Manchester Comic Con finally announces more guests. Most of which are COMPLETE nobodies and TWO are from storage hunters. WTFDTHTDWA* geeky?
The weather is wet. Everyone complains. Then the weather dries up and tries to melt Britain. Everyone complains. Just as planned.
I’m now doing Preston comic Con to make up for Manchester somewhat seeming… shit somewhat lack lustre.
I’m going to both Cons as Jayne, with Kibby going as wash, my costume is 90% complete. Just need to make a free hugs (in my bunk) sign, for obvious reasons.
A nerf rapidstrike is being used for Vera.
I went for a little fall and have completely destroyed the tendons in my right ankle. Consequently can’t walk that far or fast…
Jayne will now have a crutch, and a limp.
I am now playing Stardew Valley, and it’s a nice un-manic game a bity like Harvest Moon
Robot Wars is back on! Razor…was poorly driven.

However, the biggest news is…I now play Magic. Curse you Kibby!

I will return.

Reasons to Vote “Leave”:

Well crap. Here we are again, I said there’s a reason I don’t do politics.

Ok, it’s taken me a while, but I’ve done a fair bit of soul searching and come up with 12 genuine reasons why you would want to Vote “Leave” on the 23rd June.

So strap yourselves in for-

Ugh..Politics May Local Elections 2016

Right, lets get this sorted. Actual politics on my blog I generally don’t do, and with good reason: Most people are too clouded, jaded or swayed to understand that politics is very simple, and there is really only one choice when you vote.
sitonfence[1]
When you vote, realise this fundamental truth: that like-it-or-lump-it the very foundation of democracy itself is a liberal idea. The belief that everyone is equal and has an equal voice. Most people want to see other people succeed, want to know they’re safe, want to make sure they’re looked after. Both for their family and friends, and strangers.

See, that’s it: voting is about equality. One of those oft abused words, a word that is now used as an excuse to discriminate; used in that way by people who tell you to “check your privilege,” or charge more for white males at an equality bake sale…but that is for another time. You are a citizen of the state that has a responsibility to you, but you have a responsibility to the state. That singular responsibility is to vote.

And the choice I was on about is this – whenever you’re about to put your mark in a box ask yourself “Will this person fight for the rights of all, or a few?”, “Does this person represent me, or the 1%?”, “Does this person believe in equal opportunity and responsibility, or do they just care about their own and those who are lining their pockets?”, and perhaps most importantly “Could I feel like I could talk to this person without being belittled about my problems?”

These questions are very important, else you’ll end up with a Health Secretary that plays around with his phone when he should be listening to a debate, or a PM and Chancellor that laugh with all their rich buddies when they’re getting told the harsh truths of their austerity cuts, that multiple investigations into selling of various crown assets find that they could well lead to corruption, falling of standards, that independent financial think-tanks and multiple advisers get ignored when they say austerity isn’t working (reminder that debt is the highest it’s ever been, even counting for inflation, thanks to that Chancellor and his ilk again), or you’ll get a secret trade agreement that won’t be held up to public scrutiny where the rights of individuals aren’t as important as corporations (TTIP, read up on it. Never heard of it? Don’t worry, you’re not meant to), and worse of all you’ll get the super-rich owned mainstream media ignoring these facts (like not hearing much about TTIP…) time and again to stir up divisions within the only party big enough to stop this, pretend that yesterday’s result was a defeat for Labour. What with the oh-so-conveniently-timed false claims of anti-Semitism, yesterday was a damned landslide.

Seriously, how the Cons (we shorten it to that for a reason) get any seats is always beyond me…on top of the usual lies, and what is becoming a tiresome attack on Corbyn, that he isn’t a capable leader who engages with voters, (and of course we don’t want the people remembering politics involves them), continually pretending the party is near collapse, and this time playing an anti-Semitism card? Poor form. It’s not like the man who orchestrated this latest attack has a history of doing so or anything. Boom, there you go; I’ve just painted a huge target on my back.*

Oh, and those Labour MPs wanting to oust Corbyn: get the hell out of a Party you don’t belong in. This isn’t the Red Tory Party anymore, Blair has gone and so should you.

See, that’s why I rarely do politics.

*Want to know who the bad guys are in the almost 70 year long Israeli-Palestinian conflict? The answer may well surprise or even horrify you: it’s the UN and US (yes, that includes us), no really, it is that simple. But I digress.
