Day 206

Hottest day on record in some parts of Great Britain, and earlier today it was too horrid moving about, so no choice really but to sit in the garden and have a G&T!

Day 206 ~ G&T @ 29C

In other news our new Prime Minister has been making a shiny bright new cabinet of Brexit preferring MP’s after axing most of the old ones, and those he didn’t axe, upped and left. His new cabinet is built around the team that delivered the Brexit Leave result in 2016, with the odious arch- Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg now leader of The House of Commons & Lord President of the Council. Worse still is the promotion of Dominic Cummings, inventor of “Β£350-million-pounds-for-the- NHS” bus ( a blatant lie) and the “take back control” slogan during the campaign. This paragon of perfidy will now be running the country in the background while Boris blabbles on about Uniting the Country (not an effing chance mate) getting a better deal from Europe (good luck with that hah!) and supplying thousands more teachers and policemen with a budget of zilch. Mr Cummings was a great promoter of fake news in his Brexit campaign and last year was found in contempt of parliament for his lyin’ and cheatin’ ways.

If you’ve never seen the channel 4 drama “An uncivil war” it’s well worth a watch to see how he manipulated the news, and everyone around him.

My mind keeps boggling at how this has all come about. The North East region where I live has a majority of left wing/socialist voters, and the vast majority of these people voted for Brexit, thereby facilitating a Right Wing Government the likes of which I’ve not seen before. I just do not understand why they couldn’t grasp that Europe wasn’t their enemy, the Tories were, and will be even more so now. Well, to get all biblical on your asses, they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.

I spent a little while making this. Can you tell I’m not H.P??

  1. Speaking as one of those Left-Wing leave voters, (though Communist, not ‘Socialist’) we had to vote with our conscience, FR. The EU is just a huge Euro-business, run by France and Germany, purely for their benefit, and with a cheap workforce provided by the former eastern bloc states that were let in to provide slave labour and prostitutes. Anyone that doesn’t fit in, like Greece, is just thrown to the wolves.
    OK, that’s harsh, but I have hated the EU since I didn’t vote to go in in the first place. (1975, I think)
    Unfortunately, that has let in the hooray Henrys, but I am trusting that people might see through them, and elect a Labour Government next time. I hate all the Tories with a vengeance, but the worse they get, then hopefully more people might see them for what they are.
    Fingers crossed! But I’m not holding my breath.
    Red flag flying, but not fluttering…
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Yeah I know Pete, but I don’t think our lot were so clear of thought as yourself. Also the Labour Party is a shambles right now just when we need them to be cohesive, I don’t think they have a hope in hell of winning until they get they’re act together. The Torys will have done a lot of damage before they’re out. Anyhoo we’ll just have to sit back and enjoy the ride as Phil says, but I feel so sorry for the poor, disabled, overworked and underpaid of the land, their lot has just got a lot more precarious.

      1. All they have to do is to vote Labour, instead of The Brexit Party. Corbyn will be so excited to be able to implement his policies, at least some good stuff will get done. (Yes, we will pay for it later with borrowing, I know) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Sounds like your country is just as messed up as mine. The right wingers and pishers who fail to see the benefit of social programs in the long run, not the short. Immediate not future needs and wants. Exploit now before someone else gets it. I’m not going to continue.

    On the other hand, how funny you have a G&T out there in your heat! We are expecting over 100 F (38 C) here – what is it you have? – anyway, we are planning on G&Ts this evening, and there is your lovely photo making me look forward to the evening . . . Take care!

  3. I don’t really follow the news or politics (sorry πŸ˜…πŸ˜…)
    As for the heat….yup, biggest temperature ever recorded here as well. And right now I’m slowly becoming a puddle of water with two eyes lolπŸ˜‚ The airco at work also didn’t work too well, so that wasn’t much fun either πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
    As always…great picture! 😊😊

  4. You are an angel and I know in your heart you want a sane world. I am afraid social media has turned everything insane. And with it the left too, mostly persons from the left that tell me to hate white persons because for some reason their skin color makes them racists, or to label me as an uncle Tom for have my own thoughts and not theirs (meaning I am a traitor to my race, what is strange because my blog is my work to avoid my culture to be banished) persons from the left are the ones challenging me to show self-portraits because they think I am speaking in the name of another race as if i were white (why one would negate the race of one person? that is terrible) Left politicians wanting immigration are the ones that own industries that pay them slave wages, and the media they purchase claim that we complain because we are racist monsters, etcetera. And the millions that the U.N. and E.U. gives to the government to help the Venezuelan immigrants (a left government where only the leaders eat) are not using them to help the immigrants but to make themselves richer. Our country is poor and we as particular citizens help as we can, but we cannot help without a control. What is even worse is that European people from the left are given permission to give donations to terrorists that killed tens of thousands of persons in poverty, only because they didn’t want to follow their ideology, the terrorists said it was because they wanted a better world for the people they were killing. Right or left if the ideology is worth more than a human life then is worthless.

    Sorry for the long paragraph. My point is that I have seen British media and to me they are the same as in everyplace. Their owners have interests so the few press of the right will say the left (and in part is true) backs racism against whites, work for cheap in China or any third world country with slavery, interests of global corporations over the national interests, impoverishing of population to control it as it is done in Venezuela. The massive press of the left will say that there is a misogynist, sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, oppressive culture that has to change. I think in part is true, too. But I don’t think it is in the extreme way either want us to believe. I think people is for the most part trying only to live well, but media, to survive the internet age, is taking advantage of the natural capability of persons to feel indignation before unfairness, making people think anybody with an opposed point of view is pure evil. I think that’s a sort of inhumane religion rather than the truth.
