Oh Bollocks

Neither the EU nor immigrants are forcing poor British families into ever-deeper poverty. Our Tory government is doing that.

Neither the EU nor immigrants are bleeding the NHS dry, closing libraries, trying to sell our school system to the highest bidder, and generally stomping on the faces of anyone too poor and powerless to kick up an embarrassing fuss. Our Tory government is.

And you, you stupid fuckers, regardless of any other outcomes of what has to be the dumbest decision I've had the doubtful privilege of witnessing—and there will be many outcomes, and they will be dire—have just handed our government to the most reactionary, right-wing section of the Tory party, who care even less for people less fortunate than themselves than do the smug, rich, self-serving bastards who currently hold the reins.

*Slow clap*

Please accept our love and prayers.
Such violence, we do reject—
But please don't fly your rainbow flag;
It makes us think of yucky sex.
And please don't kiss out in the street,
Don't let us see you holding hands,
Don't make us see that you exist,
Don't ask for rights or wedding bands.
For though you've suffered awful loss,
We sympathise, but must defend
Our right to keep you in your place
As not-quite members of the human race;
As second class citizens.

The curd of human kindness
Splatters from our bowels.
We label it "Condolences,"
And heap it on with trowels.

Daz

As it's Friday and I'm actually at the computer, hows about a Friday Night Is Music night post? This week's theme is the colour red. I've gone the literal route—every song I'm posting above the line has the word "red" in the title—but if you're adding suggestions in comments, feel free to widen the concept to things that are red; sunsets, bloodstains, etc. Anyways, here's six from me to start the ball rolling. A red ball, obviously.

So whadapp'ndwas, someone cited Wikipedia's article on the Qur'an, but instead of posting that link to the regular desktop version, they posted the mobile version instead. And I have to say, even on my desktop I prefer the cleaner, uncluttered mobile Wikipedia to the regular version. So much so, in fact, that I spent a fruitless half-hour trying to find a script or add-on which would allow me to always be directed to the mobile version. The closest I got was finding an old toggle-between-the-two one for Chrome which, according to the comments on the page, no longer works.

Bugger!
