Tinpot fucking fascism, is what it is.

Yes, if they could get away with it they would. The very thought of them even raising a trial balloon, perhaps by some backbenchers initially, to "see how it plays". Fills airtime on talk radio stations, and see how it spreads.

Watering down of the Human Rights Act will come first I bet. As with legal aid, because people we don't like benefit from it too, it's easy to whip up a mob. Incredible how effective "othering" can be.

At the time I thought it was the worst thing possible, but I am missing the performative incompetence. This getting things done - but all of them are idiotic - is much worse.

I may vomit.

What a narrow-minded, insecure country we've become.

And yet responding to this culture war with-us-or-against-us bullshit just means we're playing their stupid game too.

If someone puts a sticker on a lamp post, is that a crime?

If so, what happens if someone who disagrees with the sentiments on the sticker writes on it?

Clapping cured the virus so flags will save the Union. Science.

I can't stop thinking about the reports of David Cameron going on a camping trip with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. I'm mean, there's nothing wrong with going on high-risk adventure holidays but this seems up there with "Afternoon Tea with Putin" or the "Salzburg Sound of Music Tour" on the list of worst excursions ever.
