The Liberal-Fascist Complex

How long has it been, are we really more than two years into this Liberal-Fascist coalition? And the Liberals are still there propping up this savagery like it ain't no thing. What is that about? Have they not noticed what they're involved with here? Are they not concerned about all this multi-death at the hands of ATOS and Iain Duncan Smith? This transfer of public money into private pockets at the hands of Wee Georgie Osborne and Dave Cameron and the sordid twisted foreign policy gestures of the well-known paedophile enabler William Hague?

What on earth goes on at their meetings?

Clegg: Vince, what are the current ATOS death-rate figures?
Cable: Well Nick, it looks like they're down slightly on the last quarter
Clegg: Oh goodie! I knew we were doing the right thing

Is this barbarism now official Liberal-Democrat policy?

Out on a jolly with some of the auld school

Clockwork Orange, or Too Tough To Die at the very least. Toby put this thing together, made it happen like.

Tuesday night is party night, all night long. Oh-là-là Phil looks so Gallic somehow and Tom is still so very tall.

Bonus: the pale soft flesh of hands that toileth not in the fields.

Viva Las Vegas

If I wind up broke then I'll always remember that I had a swinging time

Morrissey vs the Ramones

No contest. Morrissey is an idiot. Morrissey is also officially "devious, truculent and unreliable". What are the chances that Morrissey may be an auto-contrarian too?

Via Stuart, although I forget the original source.

RIP Andy

It was Andy Privett (né Gardner)'s funeral in Nottingham on Thursday. I hitched a lift with Simon (thanks Simon) and, with Helen and Gavin, we sort of formed the City of London Anti-Apartheid Group delegation. I was really pleased to be able to go and it was a joy to see how many lives he had touched during his time in Nottingham, and how many people from those campaigns — Nottingham Uncut, Occupy Nottingham, Nottingham UAF and so on — came along to pay their respects to this big-hearted, flamboyant, fearless giant. It was a long sad wonderful day. The music chosen for his funeral included a Liza Minelli number which I cannot remember the title of, Judy Garland doing Somewhere Over The Rainbow and Shirley Bassey's version of I am What I Am which has been repeating on me ever since. Tune or what, eh?

Mr C around town, part XXV

"J'ai vu New York, New York U.S.A. J'ai jamais rien vu d'aussi haut. Oh! c'est haut, c'est haut New York..." Monsieur C is helping Mayor Bloomberg with the recovery effort in the area around the Chrysler building. Unfortunately at the moment they can't get within 5 blocks of anywhere particularly interesting but we're hoping for regular updates. Photo courtesy Ronni Thomas Archive
