Lefty’s Sunday Selection Of Tweets [Glad You Didn’t Say “Best”, Lefty! – J.C. Well, I Was Hoping, Jeremy, That By Omitting That Particular Word You Might, Just For Once, Stop Literally Butting-In To My Blog Headline, Which As You Know I Try To Keep As Brief As Possible. – L. No Comment! – J.C.], 15th-22nd January

Hello, friends.

And before I list last week’s tweets … it seems there’s been quite a – literally – kerfuffle over the past few days concerning a post that Jeremy wrote for this Blog the other day!

Rather a lot of you have been asking me what I think about it! Indeed, many of you seem to be really rather anxious to hear my opinions! So I guess I’d better – literally – come clean here!

Confession time, friends!

I have to confess, friends, that I have not actually read Jeremy’s post! I’ve been – literally – up to my eyes in other matters – e.g. all my Mass Marches Against Trump, attended by myself – and I simply haven’t had the time!

Boring, friends!

To be quite honest, friends, I do find Jeremy’s prose style a little – sorry, Jeremy, but it simply must be said – flat! Not exactly boring, but not quite the lively, colourful prose that this Blog prides itself on.

Furthermore, friends, I gather that Jeremy’s piece included references to legal matters, and I have to tell you that I – literally – have no time for lawyers, other than, of course, when it’s Our Supreme Court Judges democratically voting down Brexit, as we all know they’ll be doing on Tuesday at 9.30am! (I – literally – can’t wait, friends!)

Running a Blog like this, which is of no small importance [No importance at all, in fact, Lefty! – J.C. Oh hello, Jeremy! I was wondering when you’d literally pop up here, like a Hard-Right cat out of the bag that’s literally taken the biscuit, and reached for the smelling salts in the bare cupboard!L.] is actually quite a time-consuming business, friends!

Research, friends!

Not everyone realises how long, for example, it takes me to do all the necessary research for my pieces, and to find solid sources – and we on the Progressive Left always believe in using solid sources, friends, unlike Hard-Right elements who believe all the LIES they read in neoliberal, racist rags, e.g. the Far-Right Guardian – so that all my Blogs can be of the kind of standard that all of you Readers have come to expect from me. [Ha! – J.C.]

But fear not, friends! As it seems so many of you appear to believe that I should read Jeremy’s piece, I promise you I shall do so! To be honest, it’s not something I am greatly looking forward to doing, for the reasons mentioned above, but I shall – literally – take a gander at it some time during the next week or two.

Anyway, friends, enough of all this – literally – gay banter! Here are last week’s Tweets:

*******************************************

Let us sing together against Trump, friends!

And now, friends, what I know is for many of you the favourite part of this Blog [Indeed, Lefty – because it means you’ll soon shut up! – J.C. Oh Jeremy! Is that literally snide remark all you can say, after all I’ve literally done for you? – L. Yes. J.C.].

So today, in commemoration of the literally tens of billions of Our Women who yesterday literally sacrificed their lives, as well as their sanity, in their Mass March Against The Hard-Right, literally Fascist Trump, let us sing together!

And what could be a more fitting tribute to them – a celebration, indeed – than my specially adapted version of yet another old – literally – chestnut? Let us now, very quietly, and with the great dignity that This Great Movement Of Ours is justly notorious for, sing, at the top of our voices, it! [Not a very good sentence construction there, Lefty! – J.C. Oh Jeremy! Why do you always have to butt in at such a sensitive moment, like a bad penny that’s just turned up its toes at a Hard-Right vicarage tea party?L.]

Who’s going to play the organ today? Friend Archbishop? Ah, thanks, Archie! OK, all together now, friends:

We shall overcome Trump,
We shall overcome Trump,
We shall overcome Trump, some day (2024  at the latest).

Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall – literally – overcome Trump, some day.
.
We shall literally march against him,
We shall literally march against him,
We shall smash vicious Hard-Right Trumpery, some day.
.
Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall – literally – overcome Trump, some day.
.
We shall literally smash Hard-Right neoliberalism,
We shall totally destroy racist Fascism,
We shall smash Far-Right intolerance, some day.
.
Oh, deep in my heart,
I do believe
We shall – literally – overcome Trump, some day.
.
We are not afraid to march literally everywhere,
We are not afraid to defy the Hard-Right CNN ,
We are not afraid, TODAY.

  1. I am literally astounded that you appear to have been restored to us. Has Corbyn(nee our Jeremy) seen sense and rediscovered his humanity.? I always had faith literally unlimited faith in both of you.
    Can I call the dear leader that again and also use again our Jeremy?
    My mate Ron is literally in pieces after smashing his lifesize statue of Corbyn(late our Jeremy) .The pieces are everywhere .In our beds and on our table. Must he weld it all back?
    This is not how it is supposed to be. Abrupt changes of policy belong to the hard right fascist May junta and the hated Trump both totally unelected.
    Our Jeremy belongs to the steadfast tradition of our beloved Vladimir and Josef S.
    I am as ever confused. The life of a Corbynista is a path of pain and strife.

  2. I think from now on I shall devote my energies to singing Puccini arias beneath the fine bridges of this realm. I can no longer descramble the mixed messages emitting from this dubious blog. Who is in charge, our dear leader Jeremy who Letfly insists was responsible for last week’s dramatic news item (but was issued under bis own imprimatur), or the tweeting wonder, who having emerged from his “slumbers” denies knowing about the affair? This last must be a terminological inexactitude because Letfly tweeted about it.

    I shall not enter the fray at Copeland for fear of losing much more than my deposit. Anyway the right-wing inspired devastating floods that threated bridges in that part of the world are hardly conducive to my wellbeing.

    I can only spare a few literallys (literally, literally) so use them sparingly. They don’t grow on trees you know!

  3. Did one of our congregation pop along to the Tory Tomb in the hope of ministering tea tree oil and quinoa in a -literally-gluten free scenario to the body of our Dear Leader of All Inspirations?
    And did she not say that the tomb was empty-and indeed, she KNEW that Socialism had come off the NHS waiting list. was dodging the embalming community-and was now soaring free?
    And who believed her?…Friends, I think that it was me alone.
    Which is why I`m an Archbishop-others here are counter revisionists, so it seems.
    I therefore declare a National Day of Reconciliation and Thanksgiving. For this blog has risen from the grave and we can now begin to go back to our parishes and prepare for an InterFaith Forum and a hot sweet tea.
    I will bless you all-and I am sure that the girls will want to see me privately in the confessionals, which are near the front row I have allocated to them.
    There is a career path for the factionalists and deviationists of the male persuasion to become my superannuated altar boys as well.

  4. Letfly, one tweet was of considerable interest:

    “Friends! You can’t make a silver lining out of a sow’s ear!
    You’d just get a pig’s breakfast that was – literally – smoke and mirrors.”

    Comes from years of pork-barrelling perhaps?
    How much funding has gone to your Rockall constituency?
