And today, as a special treat [Ha! – J.C.], in addition to my usual round-up of last week’s tweets, I am copying my good friend Saveed’s passionate tirade re this vicious Tory Government’s ban on allowing smokers to give up their habit, which appeared in the Far-Right Guardian this morning! So, I shall start with that, along with the usual link to the original article and comment provided below:
Smokers trying to quit hit by postcode lottery as GPs ration help
Friends! So now this totally unelected Tory Government is choosing, cold-bloodedly and with malice aforethought, to murder victims of a habit which was literally foisted upon them against their will!
So – never let this be forgotten, friends – tonight, thanks to this literally Fascist Government, literally millions of smokers will go to bed, cold, hungry and poor, having been literally forced to choose between heating and eating – and all because the Tories are viciously refusing to allow them to give up their smoking habit.
And STILL Hard-Right elements claim to wonder why those of us on the Progressive Left are – literally – revolting!
And here are last week’s tweets:

Let us sing together, friends!
Friends, I – literally – feel a song coming on! And as I’m sure you’re all as literally thrilled as I am that Our Tony (formerly the widely-hated Far-Right Red Tory War Criminal Bliar) has now – literally – lent his support to Our Remain Campaign, I have adapted my chorus of the Red Flag as a special tribute to him. [I really can’t believe this, Lefty – you treacherous snake, you! – J.C. Well, Jeremy, I’m sorry to say that you’ve literally brought this upon yourself, by not supporting Our EU enthusiastically enough! Do you know, I sometimes even wonder if you’re truly committed to Our EU at all! – L. No comment! – J.C.]
Who’s going to play the organ today? Friend Ron, could you just drag yourself away from Friend Dave and his socialist pie-making activities in the southern Principality for literally just one second, and – literally – lend a hand here? Thanks! All together now:
