Kicking Out The Tories, After Corbyn Win

By our Special Political Cafe Blogger, Frank Fish

Yeah, like that’s gonna happen, Kicking Out The Tories, in my lifetime – how exactly is that going to come together in the next couple of years? Build a nice Movement, is it? Lots of flags? I’m 59 on Monday, and am angry about how this is going to potentially fuck up my kids lives, just as they are starting out. All you ex-hippies, teenagers, gullible students, disillusioned part time Labour voters, hard left dreamers, @DegsyHatton , Scottish Cat Man Diane Abbott, old Uncle Jeremy Corbyn & all, and assorted other losers, whoever you are, well done.

This is my Labour Party, and I won’t be touching any of the aforementioned people with a very long barge pole. I despise you and your lack of any understanding of what’s going on here, or instinct to realise that, as John Lydon famously sneered,

Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? Good night!

Come Together? Look how that worked for The Beatles. Put out the lights as you leave the next rally, and set off on The Long And Winding Road.

Larkin said it better:

“They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.”
Philip Larkin

Change Corbyn for Larkin. It works quite well.
