… And the People Say, ‘Who Voted for This?’

Firstly, our unconditional thanks must be given to Greenpeace who, by staging a fantastic protest against Truss and her right-wing, anti-environmental agenda during her closing speech at the Conservative Conference in Birmingham, made Liz pull this face: It’s been difficult to know where to begin with writing about everything that has happened over the last…

Never Truss a Tory

We’ve been pondering lately about who is the worst choice for Prime Minister between Boris Johnson and Liz Truss. This is a difficult conundrum because, in the simplest terms, they are both awful. Neither one are fit for highest office; they both present different problems. We already have raw sewage being routinely discharged into our…

Goodbye, Boris: Gone (For Now) But Not Forgotten

Ah, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson. Or, plain old ‘Al’, as we recently discovered some of his family refer to him as. A sado-populist. An eternity politician. A human virus. The straw that broke the camel’s back. Our hearts sank in December 2019 when we heard the announcement that he had won the election by…

Who Controls the Past Controls the Future

‘Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ George Orwell, ‘1984’ Orwell’s famous quote from ‘1984’ is what we immediately thought of when we endured reading Rishi Sunak’s desperate interview in The Spectator today. The former Chancellor of The Exchequer – and leading light in the Johnson government -…

The Great British Run Off

Ahoy! The Great British Run Off is kind of like The Great British Bake Off, only much dirtier and you definitely wouldn’t want to eat it. Our sewage-steeped rivers and seas could be tourist attractions soon: think of the Brown Waves of the South Coast as you would think of The White Cliffs of Dover.…

24hr Party People

I can’t quite tell you how much of a shambles living in England has been over the last few weeks, if not months and years. Certainly since early-mid January 2022, we have had confirmation of what we always knew: that our leaders are lying, corrupt self-serving pigs. Every day has bought with it a new…

The Truth is Not Available for Comment at This Time

We’re on day 11 of 2022 and we are now counting down the minutes that Johnson has got left as UKPM. To be honest, he is The Thing That Should Never Have Been: he came through on a red bus of Brexit lies, riding the wave of public fatigue from Brexit.  Whilst he may have…

Like a Ship Without a Rudder

Happy New Year, Plague Islanders. Except, it’s a new year with same old pestilence problems that have dogged us since March 2020. Namely, Covid-19 and the reckless, corrupt, and now aimless, Conservative government. We have crazy high numbers of Covid/Omicron infections on our tiny island. One in fifteen people were infected in the last week of 2021.…

You Cannot Keep Spring From Coming 

We remember what we were doing in May 2020, precisely because we weren’t doing much. We were living through the first lockdown here on Plague Island, where we had been instructed by the government to, ‘Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives’. Along with millions of others, we weren’t going out. We were separated from…

Freedom Day: A Retrospective

So, the Omicron variant is here and the government are in full-on ‘headless chicken’ mode: there was a hurried escalation to ‘Plan B’, Johnson gave a pre-recorded televised address to the nation last night urging people to get their booster shots. It was pre-recorded, you understand, so he didn’t have to face awkward press questions…
