Theresa, inhuman?

I find Theresa’s representation as the careless, inhuman PM equally misleading as in presenting Jeremy as incompetent and dangerous. She is not good for the Tories, but that is not my business. It is perhaps a small retribution towards Corbyn’s treatment by the media before the elections. However, what happened in Grenffield is not her personal direct fault.

She is just incapable of masking the consequences of years of inhuman policies. Years of pro-austerity governments have led to damaging policies and a lack of provision which has been putting lives at risk. The fire and death of people at Grenfield have been a possibility, and as such it has occured.

The media postmaturely focussing on her inability to empathise with citizens is driven by the establishment consensus which seeks a way out of hard Brexit or a Corbyn-led government. On the contrary, the Queen’s visit near the Tower represents the continuity between ‘strong and stable’ governments, whether New Labour or liberal Tory, and the fact that the current government may not be one of them. It is the symbolic (and only such) reassurance to the public that things will get to a more human level, only if ‘extreme’, careless politicians go out of the way. As Heidi Allen, the Conservative MP for South Cambridgeshire, described what May is not: “a leader and a party that will carry us through this most turbulent of periods but care about the little man at the same time”.


Stephen Hawking casts his vote.

Stephen Hawking is working on a new ‘super-asymmetric’ theory, whereby we cast an asymmetric vote in the Jezza-red frequencies such that the Tories are sent to the nearest black hole.
However, the Jezza-red frequencies should be used only once upon a time, otherwise our solar system may turn into particles with extreme left spins leading to subzero temperatures, turning every citizen into a Trump supporter in hope that he will make everything possible to increase the temperature of the Earth. He smiled.
Then, Stephen made a serious face, and went on to say, “please cast your Jezza-red vote. If it passes from your mind that you might be turning into a communist, just try to think a bit faster than the speed of light and all thoughts will be undone”.

Who is up for a ‘flat white’?

Who is up for a flat white?
We could chat about the ignorance and recently triggered racism of the british (non)-working class, and how “they will lose more comparatively” with the new tory boys and girls, something from the nothing they possess.
And then, with a heart-broken middle class leftist and/or hipster highness, which is only surpassed by that of the 90-year old queen, we could change tone and “give them a break”, that they are not to blame, because they are not educated enough and have been deprived by the ever increasing ‘cuts on welfare’, a phrase which has become more and more difficult for us to understand, and thus have mind-mapped it as a version of ‘ristretto’.
And then turn the lights towards our open-minded closed selves (again!) and thank god we have had an education and a decent job in order to be able to enjoy freedom of movement and ideas. And go on to value how important it is to abolish racism and be tolerant and open in order to maintain a liberal society, where our educated social skills allow us to become blind to our well-hidden discrimination towards any other class apart from our British/European middle class and rarely caught in eruption; only when someone who looks like a “societal parasite” turns to us and says ‘leave my fucking country’.
And we wonder how our expensive education has not equipped us with more brightness than that emitted by a populist newspaper and enable us to see beyond where one of those “parasites” can see.
As we start to see, the artisan coffee shop has closed. We step out of the shop, and I kick a Starbucks latte take-away cup by accident. I give it another conscious kick and it trumbles over only to sit on a plastic British flag. Suddenly I realise that our most celebrated materialisation of the Euro-British diversity and inclusiveness is the sophistication of the espresso menu.

Political honesty measured by the mass media

With only one sentence you get all your dirtiness inside out!

“Any politician who has managed to maintain an image of such innocence for so long is obviously a canny operator.” — The Telegraph on Jeremy Corbyn (UK Labour party)

So now it is a fact for the forefront of the society (mass media in this case) that if you are a politician or even more you want to be the prime minister, then you are a liar by default, perhaps since you were born. It is much different for this to be said by the ‘common people’. When it is said by the elite, it demonstrates sheer certainty that this is how the world should be. From this we can establish that it is not a matter of vote anymore to choose someone decent, as those that offer themselves as candidates are not and should not be. And therefore if someone is able to demonstrate persistent innocence, then he must be the canniest of all, so canny that he exceeds any expectation. Same happened with Varoufakis. In lack of diplomatic skills, of similar kind of what the Telegraph requires from a politician, his discussions in the Eurogroup were passing as incomprehensible and rude, as breaching the standards of communication between politicians.
