Not dead...

Monday, December 13, 2010

...just very busy.

Having said that though, it pleases me that in my absence, a regular troll of Old Holborn's has been keeping my presence very much alive. Thanks, mate!

With regards to this whole middle class sons-and-daughters-of-school-governors police brutality malarkey, I tend to find myself in agreement with Rab. The lefty students who support the idea of Labour's ratcheting up of the bully state for 13 years are now the ones publicly on the receiving end of it. And are sadly far too dim to realise that their ideology is the cause. This is what happens when you give certificates to spastics with side partings (perhaps now we can see why Labour were so keen).

Although in saying that, those now forming the Cleggeron Coagulation hardly conveyed the most vocal of opposition in past years, so let those fuckers take their share of the blame too. And the creepy hangers-on defending them.

But I digress. They may be indoctrinated, but seeing them getting a roughed up just doesn't affect me one iota, given what their more militant counterparts stand for.

If these are the brains of the future, then God help us. Not one voice opposed to high taxation, endless foreign aid, quangoes, bureaucracy, illegal wars, benefits 'n' housing for immigrants who've never worked here and don't even bother to learn the lingo, or our strictly democratic membership of the EU. All of which I dare say a significant amount of these stoodents would probably support, for no other reason than they've been told to support them.

Is this what we want? A generation of dipshits who do as they're told by suits? I thought they were rebels. Ha!

After apparently skipping all that, it's just gimme gimme gimme. Gimme the scraps thrown off the Big Table by the Elite, stolen from ordinary, tired, hardworking people (minimum wage earners too) at pain of violence and kidnap by the Almighty State they constantly demand "does something" to pay for degrees in flower arranging and golf club management. Well, now the Almighty State is doing something. It's YOUR turn now, crusties.

I fully expect to be hit with the argument that it'll be "my turn next". It will be anyway. It'll be everyone's turn at some point. It's what the students, the SWP and the trade unions wanted. But let us without big-governmental sin cast the first stone, eh?

Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em all. If a Marxist Utopian police state wasn't what a disproportionate amount of them wanted I might have some sympathy. But they do and I don't.

Sometimes, people just have to learn the hard way. Although I do admit, I have an interest in anyone holding their government to account (and sorely regret the crusties not doing serious damage to the Jug-Eared Prince and his Bit[ch]). I just wish it wasn't this lot doing it. It's entirely party political and principle can go and whistle, seemingly.

Hello again. Couldnt agree more. These students have almost made my head explode with rage.
Finally people are taking to the streets and standing up to the government, and fuck me with a wet fish, its all for the wrong reasons.
It makes you want to get a bunch of pissed up taxpayers together and go and smash up some student digs.

Corrugated Soundbite Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Thanks Bucko.

I've been doing a lot of reading and a lot of thinking recently. Hence the lack of posts. Besides, it's December and I'm going to enjoy the upcoming festive season (with booze and smokies) my way, no matter how much the bastards in office would prefer to see me at their mercy!

"It makes you want to get a bunch of pissed up taxpayers together and go and smash up some student digs."

Ah, that it does, Bucko. LOL. Let's do it.

If it takes the "students'" precious police state to beat some sense into them, then so be it, as far as I'm concerned!

Harbinger Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Fuck me, I thought you'd died and gone to snowman heaven! Welcome back CS, good to have you back. And yes, the dimwitted students and Marxists (although I do agree that if our current crop of politicians had grants then so should they, of course getting rid of the mickey mouse courses and those which benefit society in PROPER Unis, not upgraded Polytechnics) don't realise their ideology is causing the problems. LOL

However life goes on and we learn yet more as no doubt you have in your absence. No doubt been burried in some book (or some bush;)) who knows....

Nutters will always 'shoot themselves in the foot' and sometimes everyone has to witness it in a literal sense. It is happening.

Corrugated Soundbite Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Harbers: I only wish it had been bush ;-) In the words of Rodney Trotter "my love life has taken a distinctly Russian ambiance recently. Freezing bloody cold and the goods rarely turn up" ;-)

I'd certainly agree with your views on the hypocrisy of the political classes (but then we agree on many things). Just another question these "students" need to be asking. And also, if the grants are unaffordable now, I'd love to see a few of them genuinely get in the faces of our "masters" and ask why. Because you and I both know the answer.

I wish, that just for once, these yoofs were asking the right questions. Alas, they don't. Nobody ever seems to. Proves what a job the media and Establishment (one and the same) have done.

I bet these fuckwits could go on any amount of anti-war marches and never question the financial aspect of it. But then they'd go on "no borders" marches and never question the financial aspect of that either. Time for those muppets to choose, by the looks of things.

Corrugated Soundbite Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Anon: It is indeed.

Most of me is just enjoying the media manipulation. The "Arrrgggh! They disrespected the Royals, innit!" aspect of it. They did a far lesser job than I'd have seen done, ideally.

But really, there are those of us who are awake and most of us who aren't. Anything that does serve to wake them up can only be a good thing. Although knowing those bastards, they'll simply drift further into Marxism and their own distinctly un-anarchic brand of faux-anarchy!

Amusing Bunni Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Hi CS: I'm glad to hear your not dead!
I don't feel sorry for the "students" either.
Like you said, they should be speaking out against all the crappy labor policies that made everyone broke, except the politicians, in the first place.

I hope you are having a fun holiday season!

Corrugated Soundbite Monday, 13 December, 2010  

Hello Bunni

Good to see you still about ;-)

I've still got to get the decorations up but I'm getting there!

As for the students and anyone turning up to these protests - well, they're asking for a bigger state so let them feel the force of that state.

At the same time though, I do hope they put up a reasonable fight. Simply because of the message it sends out that we CAN - if minded to - hold those who deem to "rule" us to account. And we've all been lied to and cheated in one way or another.

I suppose it's really a case of what I mentioned in the post. I think it's the "wrong kind of people" protesting at the moment. Let them have their big government and let them lick their wounds after confronting it.

Lysistrata Tuesday, 14 December, 2010  

CS - great to read you again!

I for one am hugely delighted and relieved and cheering from the sidelines to see unrest on the streets again. And I'm not that choosy or prissy about whether they've got their economic analysis correct: I paraphrase the "Rebel without a cause" lines of "What are you protesting about?" "Well, what have you got?"

If the "smell" of protest is in the air again for teenagers, I can only say good, about bloody time, our country needs it. It keeps our government on its toes, and it teaches our young people a lot about realpolitik.

(And I'm probably in a minority when I think that further education should, in an ideal world, be free. But not for up to 50% of young people (we can't afford it and it's stupid anyway). Perhaps we should return to the meritocracy of only 5% being clever and hardworking enough to earn and be paid for serious university courses.)

But I really don't care that much about why. I care that they are taking to the streets. Don't mock them too much. Many more of them will be the libertarian activists and bloggers of the future, and will become so precisely because of this experience.

Corrugated Soundbite Tuesday, 14 December, 2010  

Lysistrata: I thank you most humbly ;-)

This has been a bit of a moral maze for me and I tried to avoid going down the Tory path of simply condemning them and demanding their immediate arrest and beheading. I think many of these students' (and their SWP companions'/infiltrators') politics stink. But as I said, I'm all for people holding their government to account, and as I mentioned to Amusing Bunni, every one of us has been lied to and cheated. That's one thing we all have in common.

The point you mention about some free higher education being available is a good one. Especially as none of the protesters (from what I've seen on Twitter, anyway - I don't check the media "perspective") seem to be mentioning the vast wastes of money elsewhere. Even the bank bailouts have scarcely received a mention and have faded away into the past.

But as I'm ever the optimist (no, really) I do hope that if there's something to be gleaned from all this by the crusties, it's that the ugly face of the big state is indiscriminate, and that the government are merely a protection racket. We shall see!

Its great to see you have awoken from your slumber CS.

I did read this post this morning before i went to work but didn't have time to post a comment.Great post,i agree with almost all of it.

If these are the brains of the future, then God help us.

Precisely. The future does not bode well.

Ron Broxted/Kevin McEgan who writes a crap blog on the Indylive journal site and trolls on OH's site as you is the saddest old poofter I have ever come across. He only has one bollock and not enough cock to satisfy a Gerbil.

fraser: It's good to be back. Good to see you over this way too!

I get more confused by the second to be honest. I always like to see people holding government to account but at the same time the stubborn bit of my persona finds fault with the reasoning. They're demanding more governance (well, a good proportion of them are). How I wish they were demanding less!

Although you should feel perfectly free to air your views as to which bits you weren't keen on. No censorship round here :-)

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 15 December, 2010  

James: It's their thought process that bothers me the most. None of them appear to be asking about all the crap we ARE committed to spending on, thanks to our wondrous overlords. They just ask what they can get. They've been indoctrinated into thinking that money is infinite.

But they've also been lied to. My main gripe is that they're seemingly too stupid to realise they've been lied to. Time will teach them!

Corrugated Soundbite Wednesday, 15 December, 2010  

Anon: I couldn't possibly agree or disagree with your statement. I do find it all a bit "smirkworthy" though. This blog is distinctly backwater. Anyone impersonating me AND getting the link right back to this place is fine with me. Improves my "clickthrough" rate ;-)

Thats why its rediculous that alot of these "students" are labelled anarchists.Thay are demanding more government??

They are just left wing activists.

Corrugated Soundbite Thursday, 16 December, 2010  

I know fraser. It's mental. As far as the media are concerned, it's all about painting an image of anarchy as chaos, violence and disruption (as they all support the idea of big government).

We both know that real anarchy is simply people governing themselves in a civilised manner. Rules but without rulers, so to speak. And a lot more of us are capable of it than the government and MSM would have us think.

It's all about making anarchy seem as ugly and chaotic as possible. Sure, a few of these lefty twats may describe themselves as anarchists, but a genuinely informative media would contradict them by semantics.

This for me, is how we see how it all works. The media tell us we can't run our own lives and that we need the suits to do it for us.

You're right. These "students" are just shills for bigger government. I support their right to hold their government that lied to them to account, but I'll never join in with them.

Dear CS, "Anon" 15th is Derek Gordon Haslam, convicted nonce of Norfolk. He seems to have a gay thing for "Ron" or "Kevin" who he/she also calls "Andy/Chris/John/Wesley".

The 'Andy/Chris/John/Wesley' axis is none other than the fake UAF unemployed Oirishman K.McEgan, who is also confused with Ron Broxted the great Independent journalist, whose works are read in 170 countries and with 10,000 hits a month.

Man in a bag? Have you been banned from the Torygraph again Haslam?
