Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 20: Four Comments (On Brexit, Our Clegg, Our Immigration And Our Climate Change) From September 2016

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’re all as excited as I am about Labour’s stunning new plan for Our Financial Transaction Tax, aren’t you? Wow! This will – literally – raise all the money we need to pay for the abolition of Our Students’ Debts, which as John’s Little Read Book has made clear, is a firm promise rather than an aspiration [You’ve got it the wrong way round, Lefty!J.C. Oh Jeremy! Don’t be so literally pedantic! Who cares, anyway! Most of today’s students are so ignorant, they probably think “aspiration” is a method of taking drugs!L. Oh, isn’t it? J.C. Cheeky!L. No comment! J.C.].

Anyway, enough of this in-depth explanation of Labour’s latest policy [Ha!J.C.].  Here are four pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last September. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

Theresa May refuses to commit to Brexit pledges on immigration and NHS (report, 5.9.16)

Friends! This is just the latest betrayal by the Hard-Right Bullingdon Bully Boy May who, like this totally unelected Tory Government, is totally unelected, other than by her constituents, and by totally unelected Tory MPs who in any case cannot be removed other than by a General Election, in which those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – will naturally sweep to victory under Jeremy.

And, friends, has anyone else apart from me noticed that the so-called Leave Campaign’s wild promises and – literally – lies now literally lie in tatters?

Have they cut immigration yet? No, friends – they have not! (Thank goodness, eh, friends!)

Are they now spending £350 million per week extra on Our NHS, as they solemnly promised to do? No, friends – they are not!

Have they abolished VAT on tampons? I think you know the answer to that, friends!

Have they, above all, worked out a trade agreement with every single country in the World – and indeed elsewhere – as they promised they would do, and without which, as we all know, all trade is utterly impossible? A big fat No to that one, too, friends!

Meanwhile, friends, Our Stockmarket has now literally crashed to its highest level for well over a year, whilst the so-called £ – which, friends, should have been abolished years ago, and replaced by that utterly solid currency, Our Euro, as so many of us on the Progressive Left advocated at the time – is now literally worthless.

And then, friends, the Leavers have the effrontery to claim that all our prophecies of economic catastrophe were exaggerated! Really, words fail me! At this rate, they’ll start claiming that World War III hasn’t started yet!

No wonder, friends, that those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – are revolting!

Why I can’t forgive Nick Clegg and his party of useful idiots (article by Polly Toynbee, 6.9.16)

Friends! The widely-hated Clegg will never be forgiven for his act of Supreme Treachery, whatever it was.

But at least, friends, Friend Nick is a supporter of Our EU, and – like those of us on the Progressive Left, and there are many of us, e.g. me – is working to ensure that the tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racists, who viciously voted against Our EU in June’s totally rigged so-called Referendum, and who represent nobody but themselves, are thwarted in their totally undemocratic attempt to literally subvert Our Democracy – which Thatcher totally destroyed – with their Hate Votes.

No wonder, friends, that those of us on the Progressive Left are revolting!

Take back control? It’s now clear the Brexiteers have no clue on immigration (article by Rafael Behr, 7.9.16)

Friends! Those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – do not believe that it is necessarily racist to discuss immigration.

It is not racist, for instance, to talk about all of the enormous benefits that mass immigration has brought to this country, which are so blindingly obvious there is no need to point them out, so I won’t.

Nor is it racist, friends, for people to complain about the level of immigration. We on the Progressive Left fully understand the totally understandable anxieties that many people have about the level of immigration: it is, of course, far too low.

And what is the cause of this disgracefully low level of immigration, friends? Hard-Right Tory Austerity, of course!

Is it any wonder, friends, that literally nobody wants to come and live in Britain, where as we all know literally billions of people are forced to work 95-hour weeks on Zero Hour Contracts for poverty pay, e.g. Our Junior Doctors, while the widely-hated, totally unelected, Far-Right Bullingdon Boy Theresa May literally laughs in their faces whilst literally kicking them in the teeth?

And then Far-Right Neoliberals and members of the 1% claim to be surprised that those of us on the Progressive Left are revolting!

Amitav Ghosh: ‘climate change is like death, no one wants to talk about it’ (article by Kavitha Rao, 8.9.16)

Friends! Hard-Right Climate Change is literally the most terrifying problem that confronts all of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – and, quite frankly, the way that Far-Right racist neoliberals try to pretend that we are guilty of hyperbole and exaggeration is literally millions of miles from the truth.

Friends, Far-Right Climate Change is literally destroying this planet! WAKE UP, friends! All around us are the manifestations of it – snow, rain, wind, mist, fog, a depression from the southwest with a smattering of fog, perhaps a light shower in sheltered places with just a touch of frost at night, so if you’re out on your bicycle in Shropshire tonight, don’t forget to wrap up warm … you name it, it’s happening!

Of course, friends, we must not confuse Weather with Climate, which is a typical neoliberal Denier trick! It’s the same sort of trick, in fact, that other Deniers have used in the past, when in the 1970s, they made the absurd claim – against all the expert advice of the time – that oil would not run out in 30 years’ time! More recently, Deniers claimed – against all the Scientific evidence of the time – that the Millennium Bug wouldn’t lead to total chaos as the Year 2000 dawned, and that there would not be widespread epidemics of BSE, SARS, bird-flu, swine-flu etc. etc., wiping out of most of the human race in the process. And yet, friends, despite such a track record of total denial, they still expect us to take them seriously!

No wonder, friends, that those of us on the Progressive Left are revolting!

  1. Gosh Letfly congratulations, you were attracting a better type of nutter back in the good old days of 2016, when hopes were high and Aberystwyth-ites could safely go to bed without fear of marauding lefty midgets.

    1. The lumpen proletariat of Aberystwyth do not deserve to sleep safely any more. Yes we are the nutters now . Our midgets are looking splendid in their brand new uniforms. All black and silver with lots of gold braid.
      The workers of the university many thousands of them will be receptive to our message and under the tutelage of the immaculate Pufflet will form the advance guard of the true revolution. We are here because we can seize and fortify the town and hold it in the name of the revolution. First Aberystwyth then Machynlleth then Welshpool then to England and glory.
      The bourgeois decadent denizens of Merthyr proved a real disappointment.

  2. Fake news. Midgets remain in their brown and sickly green apparel, Aberystwyth remains its old sleepy self, its hundreds of university workers go about their business as usual cataloguing the magnificence of Welsh life and culture, and Puffinette has yet to be seen. Black Plaid flags fly from buildings and Machynlleth remains safe from your machynations.
