Lefty’s Winterval Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 15th-23rd December

Hello, friends.

And here’s my final selection of tweets and quick summaries for this year!

And what a year it’s been, eh friends! Jeremy’s – literally – unbelievable victory in June’s General Election, against all the odds, was obviously the highlight! But there were many, many other truly unforgettable moments; and we on the Progressive Left will – literally – never, ever forget them, whatever they were.

Good Winterval, friends!

I’d like to take the opportunity here to wish you all a Merry Christmas good Winterval, and a Happy New Year, despite Cliff-Edge Brexit and Far-Right Tory Austerity, e.g. spending £500bn on the new racist blue passports, which literally nobody wants, apart from a tiny handful of 17,410,742 bigots, who only voted for Brexit because of all the LIES they saw on the side of a Far-Right Russian omnibus! [It’s £500 million, surely, Lefty? – J.C. Oh Jeremy! Don’t be such a pedant! £500bn, £500 million – what’s the difference? – L. Quite a lot, surely, Lefty! And in any case, wouldn’t the cost have arisen anyway, as the existing passport contract has run out? – J.C.  Really, Jeremy! At times like this, I almost begin to wonder whether your commitment to Our EU is as full-hearted as Our Students believe it is! – L. No comment! – J.C.]

Anyway, here are the tweets. As ever, my thanks to everyone whose tweets I’ve mentioned, and to all who’ve contributed to the threads, which can easily be viewed, by dint of clicking on the tweet in question!

Lefty’s Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 10th-15th December

Hello, friends.

And I expect that you’re all as – literally – over the moon as I am by the news that  Our Tory Rebel MP heroes have – literally – scuppered Cliff-Edge Brexit by voting on Our Amendment to enable Parliament to have a meaningful vote to overturn Brexit on Our EU Deal!

And as I’ve been shrewdly predicting ever since June 24th last year, this is – literally – the final nail in the coffin for Brexit, which literally nobody voted for, apart from a tiny handful of 17,410,742 bigots and racists, who in any case didn’t know what they were voting for, i.e. a certain Hard-Right omnibus which was literally emblazoned with Leaver LIES firmly promising that – and here I quote exactly what I clearly remember it saying – “If Leave wins the Referendum on 23.6.16, then from 24.6.16, we in the Leave Camp do solemnly swear that we shall spend at least £350 billion a week on Our NHS, every single day”. Talk about dishonesty eh!

Anyway, here’s my latest selection of tweets, which includes my daily summary of an article from either the Far-Right Guardian or Our Independent.

As ever, my thanks to everyone whose tweets I’ve mentioned, and to all who’ve contributed to the threads, which can easily be viewed, by dint of clicking on the tweet in question!

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 36 (Final Part Of Series): My Comment On A Disappointing Drop In Unemployment, Despite Brexit, From January 2017. Plus: Links For Parts 1-35 Of This Series

Hello, friends.

And a – literally – very warm welcome to you all on this rather wet and windy day, which is clearly just the latest manifestation of dangerous Climate Change which, as 97% of Our Climate Scientists never tire of pointing out, has – literally – nothing to do with weather.

Today also marks the final article in this series of my comments in the Far-Right Guardian, which started back in January this year (my series, that is, not the Far-Right Guardian)! What a lot has changed since then, eh, friends! If I’d told you back in January that the hated May would call a General Election for June 8th which Labour would easily win, and that consequently Jeremy would now be Our Prime Minister, I suspect that most of you would have – literally – not believed me!

Anyway, here’s my final piece. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under it.

[PS: In case any of you are interested in reading/revisiting any of the previous blogs in this series, I’ve put links to all of them below the main piece.]


UK labour market shows signs of slowing (18.1.17)

Friends! The news that wage growth picked up and unemployment fell in the three months ending November is obviously pretty disappointing for those of us in the Remain Camp – and there are still quite a few of us, friends, as we are the 48%, whose numbers are actually growing literally every single day – who had naturally hoped for much worse news than that.

Predictably, certain Hard-Right Leaver elements are now claiming that we in the Remain Camp have “broken our promises” regarding our forecasts of a sharp economic downturn as an immediate result of a vote for Brexit.

This is, of course, nonsense. Our predictions of economic collapse were merely an aspiration, not a firm forecast. Naturally, we are disappointed that we have not yet seen our hopes of disaster fulfilled, but there are solid grounds for believing that, with just a little bit of luck, the UK economy will soon – literally – hit the rocks!

Hard-Right Leavers are also predictably using the totally spurious argument that all the experts that we on the Remain side cite for our case have been wrong in the past – e.g. in favour of Britain joining the ERM; predicting disaster if Britain left the ERM; in favour of Britain joining the Euro; predicting disaster if Britain failed to join the Euro; failing to predict the Great Crash; failing to predict that interest rates would remain low for as long as they have; and, most recently, that the British economy would experience a severe downturn in the immediate aftermath of a Leave vote.

Friends, this is no argument at all! First of all, experts are experts, and whether their predictions turn out to be correct or not surely does not detract from this in any way whatsoever. Expecting experts to be right all of the time – or indeed, any of the time – is totally unreasonable. Their job is to make predictions, not to be right, friends!

And secondly, friends, the fact that the experts have been wrong about all these issues for so long surely means that, regarding their prediction of economic calamity in the event of Hard Brexit, they must almost certainly be right. They can’t continue to be wrong indefinitely, surely? Just on statistical grounds alone, there must be a very good chance that, after producing such an impressively consistent run of totally incorrect predictions, their prediction of economic Armageddon as a result of Hard Brexit must be correct.

So, friends, please do not despair! Bad times are – literally – just round the corner in Far-Right Austerity Britain, and when they arrive – which, hopefully, will be sooner rather than later – those of us on the Progressive Left must be ready to blame them on Hard-Right Brexit, whether it has actually happened or not!

That is, after all, friends, just the sort of positive, upbeat, forward thinking which has got Britain’s Progressive Left to where it – literally – is today.
