Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 26: Two Comments On Brexit From November 2016

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’re all looking forward to Our Vince’s speech to Our LibDems this afternoon as much as I am, aren’t you, friends? Hard-Right elements claim that Our Vince’s claim that he “could be Prime Minister” is delusional – but just remember this: these are exactly the same people who, just four months ago, also claimed that Jeremy “won’t be Prime Minister after June 8th!” Where are they – literally – now, eh, friends?

Anyway, enough of all this in-depth psephological analysis [Ha!J.C. Oh Jeremy! Stop being such a literally damp squib! – L.]. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed’s Greatest Hit-ettes: two pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last November. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

Brexit so complex it could overwhelm politicians, warn senior academics (2.11.16)

Friends! This highly objective report literally proves what those of us in the Remain Camp have been saying ever since that literally dark day of June 23rd, when a tiny handful of 17,410,742 of Hard-Right bigots – who, friends, represent literally nobody but themselves – viciously voted against Our EU.

Friends, leaving Our EU would not just be literally a disaster – look at what has happened to the British economy just as a result of the June 23rd vote! It has literally tanked! – but, put at its absolute simplest so that it can be understood by even the meanest intelligence, e.g. me, it would be far too complicated!

Although the vicious claim that Our EU has imposed lots of laws on the UK since we joined in 1973 is as big a LIE as all the LIES of the Leave Camp (anyone else remember the “£350 billion per minute extra for Our NHS from 24th June, if there is a Leave vote? Another Leave Camp LIE!), nonetheless the literally thousands of laws – all completely necessary, of course – that we have taken on board since joining Our EU will need to be dealt with, one way or another. (Heaven forfend that any of them could simply be repealed! That would literally be neoliberalism gone crazy!)

I have a proposal, instead. Why don’t the Leave Camp now just come clean and admit that all the LIES they told during the Referendum Campaign – which, by the way, they never seem to tire of re-fighting, even though they clearly lost, at least in a strictly moral sense – were, quite simply LIES?

Why don’t they admit that, for instance, any immigration controls are inherently racist, and therefore should be abolished?

That it is literally impossible to trade with any country in the world – and indeed elsewhere – without the permission of Our EU Commissioners?

That it is a complete LIE to say that Britain pays *anything* in to the EU Budget, given that – as all leading experts, e.g. me, have conclusively demonstrated – for every £1 that we pay in, we receive at least £1000 back, in terms of economic growth?

That the only people fit to run this so-called country – which Thatcher totally destroyed – are Our EU Commissioners, whose democratic credentials are as impeccable as their honesty and their competence?

Let us now all admit, friends, that a huge MISTAKE was made in June by some poor (literally! Uneducated oiks doesn’t even begin to describe them!) deluded racist fools, who simply didn’t understand what they were voting for!

And let us now plead with Our EU for forgiveness, and beg with them to allow us to remain as members! And if they are so graceful as to accede to our request, let us then thank them by increasing our current Budget contribution from the current, miserable level of £10 billion/year net – or whatever it is! Whatever it is, it is far too low! – to something a lot more substantial. Away with Hard-Right Tory Austerity, friends! Let us invest in Our EU!

That, friends, would be the truly fair, democratic and Progressive way to proceed, and as such is commended by all leading fair-minded, heavyweight and objective commentators, i.e. me.

High court says parliament must vote on triggering article 50 – as it happened (3.11.16)

Friends! This is the most joyful day for those of us in the Remain Camp since that literally dark day in June, when a tiny handful of 17,410,742 bigots – who literally represent absolutely nobody but themselves – viciously voted against Our EU!

Thank goodness for Our High Court’s principled stance against Hard-Right Mob Rule, friends! We really cannot have incredibly complicated decisions, e.g. on who governs us, to be made by an ignorant rabble of uneducated racists.

Those of us in the Remain Camp are only asking that the final decision to overturn Hard-Right Brexit should be democratically taken by Our MPs, whose unimpeachable integrity and wisdom cannot ever possibly be gainsaid.

Personally – and this is literally my personal view, friends – I think it would actually be much better if the decision to stay in Our EU were to be taken by Our Judges, who being so much wiser and impartial than MPs – who, after all, are often swayed by short-term electoral considerations – could be relied upon to take the correct decision.

But as long as the decision about Our EU is not made by members of the electorate who – as June 23rd clearly demonstrated – have an irrational passion for out-dated and indeed racist concepts such as “sovereignty” and, even worse, “democracy”, then I will reluctantly acquiesce in Our MPs’ decision to abandon this whole vicious Brexit nonsense, providing they can implement it as speedily as possible.

Otherwise, we, the 48% – who, let it never be forgotten, are the majority (other than in the tiresomely pedantic, mathematical sense) – will have to appeal to Our European Court of Human Rights, to uphold the Human Rights of Us, the 48%, to Remain in Our EU, which have been literally trampled underfoot by this totally unelected Tory Government.

Lefty’s Friday Selection Of Tweets, 8th-15th September

Hello, friends.

And because there’s a rather larger number of tweets here this week – despite Brexit – along with the fact that I can’t actually think of anything worthwhile to say here [No change there then, Lefty!J.C. Jeremy, I am growing more than a little weary of your constant backbiting and sniping! Kindly desist, and get on with your Prime Ministerial duties of bringing down this totally unelected Tory Government!L.], this introductory piece is shorter than usual, due to Hard-Right Tory Austerity. I hope you’ll – literally – forgive me for such – literally – unforgiveable brevity. Anyway, here are the latest tweets. My thanks as ever to everyone whose tweets I’ve reused/mentioned here.

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 25: Two Comments (On Brexit And Neoliberal Opinion Polls) From October And November 2016

Hello, friends.

And I expect that you’re all as heartbroken as I am about Monday’s vote for the Second Reading of the widely-hated, literally Fascist EU Withdrawal Bill, aren’t you, friends? I was – literally – sobbing all night at the truly dreadful news, and even now, I am having difficulty controlling my emotions at this literally Hitlerite decision!

Puzzled, friends!

I know that some of you are extremely worried that an ardent European like Jeremy might be utterly downcast by Monday night’s vote.  But I have good news for you! Rather surprisingly, friends, Jeremy actually seems to be coping with this terribly sad news remarkably well.

After the result was announced, I couldn’t help observing that his smiles grew ever-broader, his laughs louder and heartier, and his general mood more and more sunny, even as the rest of us passionate Europeans got steadily more depressed as the awful news sank in.  What a tribute this is to Jeremy’s general stamina and ability to withstand the hard knocks of political life, friends!

Anyway, enough of this hard-hitting analysis of the current political landscape [Ha!J.C.], which has disturbing parallels with 1930s Germany. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed’s Greatest Hit-ettes: two pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last October and November. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

UK economy up 0.5% since Brexit vote, Nissan to build new Qashqai in Sunderland – as it happened (27.10.16)

Friends! Clearly, this latest piece of economic news is a bit of a disappointment to those of us in the Remain Camp, who obviously would have welcomed a much slower rate of growth – negative growth would, of course, have been best of all – to confirm the obvious fact that the vote for Brexit in June was literally catastrophic.

But let us not despair, friends! The fact that all the experts may have got things wrong up till now, should not in any way discourage us.

For one thing, the fact that Our EU Experts have been so magnificently consistent in the inaccuracy of their forecasts so far, surely means that their forecasts for what will happen in 2017 and beyond, as a result of Hard-Right Brexit, must surely have a very good chance of turning out to be correct. 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, they must finally be right next time.

And even if they just happen to be wrong about 2017, at some point in the future – even if by sheer luck – they are likely to be right about the economy turning down. And when that happy day finally dawns, we in the Remain Camp – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. Anna Soubry, Nicky Morgan, Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Our City, Our Bank of England, Our Bankers, Our Forex Dealers, and many, many other Progressive Left elements – will finally be able to rejoice as we survey the literally barren landscape of post-Brexit Britain, confident in the knowledge that all this economic devastation has been wreaked by a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Far-Right racists and bigots who (a) represent absolutely nobody but themselves and (b) did not know what they were voting for, because they were literally taken in by the LIES of the Leave Camp, e.g. a minimum of an extra £350 trillion per week for Our NHS, every single minute of every single day, from 24th June onwards. (Where IS this £350 trillion per second now, friends? Literally in the bin, that’s where!)

And when that joyful day literally dawns, friends, those of us in the Remain Camp will literally be able to say “We told you so, you bunch of Hard-Right bigots!”. And the scales will finally – literally – fall from the eyes of the Leavers, and they will be literally begging the Hard-Right Bullingdon Bully Boy May to allow Britain to re-join Our EU, so that we once again can belong to that economic power-house where youth unemployment in countries such as Spain, Portugal and Greece is at levels that the Far-Right May can only dream of, and where many, many banks in countries such as Italy and Germany are practically solvent.

But then, why would such an economic Colossus as Our EU – which is every bit as successful economically as it is truly democratic – ever want Austerity-ravaged Britain, which Thatcher totally destroyed – back in? No, by then, it will be literally too late, and Britain will continue to sink in to a quicksand of its own making, with total economic collapse the very least of its problems. Britain will then be not just the laughing-stock but also literally the Pariah of the world, and indeed elsewhere!

And personally, friends, I literally cannot wait for that happy time to arrive.

Ukip leadership candidates debate on LBC – Politics live (1.11.17)

Friends! So-called “opinion polls” are utterly worthless, because they are literally nothing more than a neoliberal tool which is used in order to reinforce a Far-Right neoliberal hegemonistic paradigm that is naturally beloved by the 1% and Banksters, along with their Hard-Right running-dogs, e.g. the Hard-Right so-called Guardian newspaper, whose anti-Socialist, anti-Our EU bias is obvious to even the meanest intelligence, i.e. me.

Nonetheless, the news that the Tory lead over Labour has been literally slashed by a full percentage point is literally the best news for those of us on the Progressive Left since Jeremy literally smashed the Far-Right Red Tory Traitor, Owen so-called Jones, in September’s Leadership Election, in which 300,000 odd people gave Jeremy their votes – often, so I am told, several times, such was their sheer enthusiasm!

The fight-back literally starts here, friends! This opinion poll’s findings, expertly produced by experts – and we on the Progressive Left always take experts seriously, unlike Hard-Right elements – clearly show that Labour has literally turned the corner in public popularity! It is all – literally – uphill from now on! And if we can just keep our nerve, and, like bears in the wood, stick together through thick and thin, an election landslide surely awaits us in May 2020, or whenever the cowardly Bullingdon Bully Boy May dares to call it!

But, of course, until that happy day literally dawns, friends, those of us on the Progressive Left – and we contain many Progressive elements , e.g. Stalinists, Maoists, Anarchists, Trotskyists, Communists, Leninists, Greens, and Our Junior Doctors – will continually be revolting!

Lefty’s Friday Selection Of Tweets, 1st-8th September

Hello, friends.

And I expect that you’re all as happy as I am that the Far-Right Mogg has – literally – shot himself in the foot with his vicious remarks about Our Abortions and Our Gay Marriage, aren’t you? That’s his leadership ambitions – literally – up in smoke eh!

Puzzled, friends!

I must admit, friends, that I’m a little puzzled as to why those of us on the Progressive Left are quite so happy that the hated Mogg no longer has any chance of becoming Tory leader, given that, as we all know, he would stand no chance whatsoever of winning a General Election against Jeremy, any more than the hated May managed to in June [Groan!J.C. Oh Jeremy! That wasn’t actually intended to be a pun!L.]. But hey, what do I know? [You said it, Lefty!J.C. No, Jeremy! I *asked* it!L. Pedant!J.C.].

Anyway, enough of this in-depth analysis of recent political trends [Ha!J.C.]. Here’s my latest selection of tweets. My thanks as ever to everyone whose tweets I’ve reused/mentioned here.

Lefty’s Friday Selection Of Tweets, 13th August-1st September

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’re all hoping, like me, that Britain will soon agree to pay Our EU’s very modest £100 billion fee for viciously attempting to leave, aren’t you, friends?

And how typical that Hard-Right Leavers claim that such a reasonable fee is “outrageous”, and ask “Where will the money come from to pay such a large amount?” when, as we all know, we can simply print the money, as Our German Friends did with such notable success in their Progressive Left Weimar Republic days! Talk about economic illiteracy, friends!

Vicious Tory Austerity, friends!

But then, what else should we expect from this totally unelected Tory Government and its vicious attacks on some of the most poor, disadvantaged and vulnerable people in Our EU – which Thatcher totally destroyed [Some mistake there, surely, Lefty?J.C.] – e.g. Our President Juncker and Our Barnier?

Anyway, enough of this literally penetrating analysis of the total disaster that Tory Austerity potentially represents to Our EU. Here’s my latest selection of tweets. My thanks as ever to everyone whose tweets I’ve reused/mentioned here.

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 24: Two Comments On Brexit From October 2016

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’re all as thrilled as I am that Labour has now – literally – seen the light re the disaster that Hard-Right extreme Brexit represents, and is now pledging to keep Britain in the Single Market and Customs Union!

Not enough, friends!

Naturally I, as a leading voice of the Progressive Left [Ha!J.C. Oh Jeremy! Do you get some kind of sick and perverted kick out of humiliating me in front of my readers?L. Yes.J.C.] am using my not inconsiderable influence [Stop it, Lefty! I can’t breathe!J.C.] to push Labour still further in the direction of a truly Soft Brexit, in which Britain will also remain in Our EU. This is, after all, what most Progressive Left elements – e.g. Our Bank of England, Our Bankers, Our Stock Market, Our IMF, Our House of Lords, Our Judges, Our CBI and indeed Our EU itself – really want.

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

Anyway, enough of this hard-hitting analysis of the current political paradigm [Ha!J.C.]. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed’s Greatest Hit-ettes: two pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last October, both on Brexit. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

Fewer UK firms are struggling despite Brexit vote, survey shows (report, 24.10.16)

Friends! The tragic news that “The number of UK companies struggling to stay afloat has fallen in a further sign that the economy is holding up after the Brexit vote” is – quite literally – tragic news.

But, friends, do not despair! All the experts that I have consulted with – and those of us on the Progressive Left always rely on experts, unlike Hard-Right elements who even now claim against all expert opinion that the Brexit vote has not caused World War III, for instance – have told me that they have high hopes that economic catastrophe is only literally a few days, weeks, months or (worst-case scenario only) years away, all as a result of Hard-Right Brexit.

In other words, friends, we in the Remain Camp have a lot to look forward to! Economic catastrophe, accelerating Climate Change, higher roaming charges and several redundancies in Brussels are just a few of the disasters that we are eagerly anticipating, all because a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racist bigots, who literally swallowed the LIES of the Leave Camp, viciously voted against Our EU in June!

And we look forward to pointing out that every single fall in the £ – which in any case, is now literally worthless – along with every single fall in Our Stockmarket to seemingly ever-greater heights, and indeed every single bit of appalling economic news generally, can be attributed to Hard-Right Brexit, which in any case hasn’t even happened yet! Those vicious Leavers literally ain’t seen nothing yet!

Any “good news” about the British economy will, naturally be *despite* Brexit. But, with any luck, there will be precious little good news, since the British economy – which Thatcher totally destroyed – is literally a basket case, which doesn’t even begin to compare with those of Our EU friends, e.g. Greece, Spain and Italy.

And to think that certain Far-Right Leaver elements claim that we on the Remain side “almost appear to want the British economy to fail”! THEY are the ones who have caused this literally total disaster, after all! Words literally fail me, friends!

Exclusive: what Theresa May really thinks about Brexit shown in leaked recording (report, 26.10.16)

Friends! This literally scandalous news that the Hard-Right Bullingdon Bully Boy May – who half-heartedly campaigned for Remain, thus sending out a clear signal to all those of us who were not too blind to hear it that she was in fact a Leaver – has turned out to be a Remainer all along, is quite literally scandalous!

And now, in a typical piece of sickeningly vicious Tory hypocrisy, she has decided to let the views of a literally tiny handful of 17,410,742 Far-Right bigots and racists to prevail, even though literally none of them knew what they were voting for, as they were all literally taken for a ride by the Hard-Right Leave Campaign’s LIES!

The cowardly, hypocritical May will literally never be forgiven for ignoring us – The 48% – because even though some Hard-Right elements predictably claim that we actually garnered fewer votes than the vicious Leavers – a typical piece of pedantic neoliberal mathematical sophistry there, friends – we are actually the Majority, when it comes to such things as wisdom, knowledge, tolerance, kindness, modesty and, above all, self-awareness.

Vicious Hard-Right Tory Brexit is literally the last thing that this so-called country needs, friends! But let us not despair! Our High Court, Our House Of Lords, Our Bank Of England, Our Bankers, Our 1%, Our Lord Mandelson, Our Tony Blair, and indeed many other progressive elements, are literally with us all the way, in our quest to save this so-called country – which Thatcher totally destroyed – from a fate literally worse than death!

What do we want, friends? An end to any kind of Brexit, whether literally Soft or Hard!

When do we want it, friends? NOW! – and preferably a lot sooner than that!

Hello, friends.

And this is going to be my last Blog [HURRAH! J.C. If you read on just a little further, Jeremy, you may find that your rejoicing is a trifle premature!  – L.] for a little while, as I am taking a Hard Blexit and indeed a Hard Twexit for a couple of weeks, during which I shall not be blogging or tweeting at all! Can you – literally – cope, friends? [Cope, Lefty? It’ll be sheer bloody BLISS!J.C. Oh Jeremy! Such ingratitude! And to think that, without all my support, you would – literally – not be Our Prime Minister! – L. No comment! – J.C.]

My next Blog will be on Tuesday 29th August, with another instalment of Saveed Miliband’s Greatest Hit-ettes from the Far-Right Guardian. And to keep you going till then [Ha!J.C.], here’s my latest selection of tweets. My thanks as ever to everyone whose tweets I’ve reused/mentioned here.

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 23: Three Comments (All On Why Brexit Is A Total Disaster) From October 2016

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’re all as pleased as I am that Jeremy has now clearly condemned the appalling events that are taking place in the former Our Venezuela, which until recently was a Socialist Paradise, but has now been totally ruined by Far-Right elements – e.g. that bigoted woman, the hated Duffy – opposing Our Free and Fair Elections, in which many Progressive Left elements voted several times, such was their enthusiasm for Our Maduro!

And yet Hard-Right elements STILL claim that “Jeremy hasn’t condemned the Government oppression of protesters”, which is totally unfair, as he’s been condemning this totally unelected Tory Government ever since it was first totally unelected!

Saudi Arabia, friends!

And talk about hypocrisy, friends! What about Saudi Arabia? [What about it, Lefty?J.C. Oh Jeremy! Don’t ask me! It’s just something that we on the Progressive Left always mention when you’re criticised over Venezuela! And, after all, it’s the one Islamic country we’re allowed to criticise without being accused of Islamophobia.L.] What about Grenfell? Foodbanks? Zero-hour contracts? The destruction of Our NHS?  Brexit? No wonder literally nobody wants to come and live in Britain, friends!

Anyway, enough of all this in-depth analysis of recent political developments [Ha!J.C.]. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed’s Greatest Hit-ettes: three pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last October. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

From Marmite to the royal yacht, Britain is now a global joke (article by Marina Hyde, 14.10.16)

Wonderfully witty piece, Marina, which literally had me in stitches! And to think that there are Hard-Right elements who claim that those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – have no sense of humour!

Britain is indeed literally a total joke, friends! Literally everyone from outside this country who I’ve met since that dark day of 23rd June, literally falls about laughing if even the subject of this so-called country – which, never let it be forgotten, friends, Thatcher totally destroyed – is so much as mentioned in passing.

It really is depressing, friends, that a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigots and racists – who represent literally nobody but themselves – can literally tarnish a nation’s reputation in this way. HOW DARE they vote against Our EU in this way, friends? I am literally outraged by their vicious behaviour!

Fortunately, friends, there is one consolation in this literally tragic state of affairs. Britain still has Our NHS, which is the one thing that makes everyone in the world, and indeed elsewhere, literally green with envy, despite the fact that this totally unelected Tory Government has totally destroyed it (the NHS, I mean) by privatisation, i.e. forcing it to operate a totally unnecessary 7-day service, which it already does in any case.

And then Far-Right elements, e.g. the BBC, wonder why those of us on the Progressive Left are – literally – revolting!

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/oct/14/marmite-royal-yacht-britain-global-joke-news#comment-85473422

 

The public are already turning against Brexit. When will Theresa May listen? (article by Polly Toynbee, 20.10.16)

Well said, Polly.

Those of us in the Remain Camp have ample grounds for quiet satisfaction, as all our forecasts before June 23rd – e.g. total economic collapse, a literally worthless £, accelerating Far-Right Climate Change, World War III, higher roaming charges all over the world and indeed elsewhere, and the threat of several redundancies in Our Brussels – have literally come true with a vengeance. And to think that there are still deluded fools who doubt the veracity of expert forecasters’ predictions!

Furthermore, friends, the encouraging news is that, should plans for Hard-Right Brexit not be abandoned in the very near future, things are going to get a lot, lot worse! (Fingers crossed, eh!)

All the highly-reliable polling evidence carried out by independent and impartial experts – e.g. me – now indicates that practically every single one of that tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigots and racists who viciously voted against Our EU in June, now bitterly regrets their misguided decision, and wishes only that this totally-unelected Tory Government – with opinion polls showing clearly that 53% of voters are utterly opposed to them – would just call off the MADNESS of Brexit, which in any case no-one would have voted for had it not been for the Leave Campaign’s vicious LIES about literally giving Our NHS an extra £350 billion every single second of every single minute of every single day from June 24th onwards, should there be a vote for Leave – LIES which, incidentally, were literally calculated to win the hearts and minds of Far-Right racists and bigots.

No wonder those of us in the Remain Camp – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. Anna Soubry, Lord Mandelson, Polly herself and me – are revolting!

Brexit: leading banks set to pull out of UK early next year (report, 22.10.16)

Friends! Those of us on the Progressive Left are literally heartbroken by the literally tragic news that Our Bankers and Our Banks will all be literally leaving Britain next year!

And all because a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigots and racists – who, friends, represent absolutely nobody but themselves – viciously voted against Our EU in June!

Most of these ignorant racists only voted against Our EU because they literally swallowed the LIES of the Leave Camp, e.g. the literally outrageous LIE that, should there be a vote for Leave on 23rd June, then from 24th June, £350 million extra would be spent on our NHS literally every day. And, like all the other LIES of the Leave Camp, that particular promise is now literally in tatters!

In other words, the whole Leave vote was based on LIES, friends! And as a result of these LIES, this country – which Thatcher totally destroyed – is about to lose Our Banks and Our Bankers, which as those of us on the Progressive Left have always argued, are the envy of the world, and indeed elsewhere.

Since the Leave vote was, as I may just have mentioned, based on LIES, surely the whole Referendum result should be declared literally null and void? Let us just quietly drop this whole “Brexit” nonsense – whether it is literally “Hard” or “Soft” – and instead work with our friends in Europe, whose ability to work successfully with other countries, e.g. Canada, is legendary.

Let us literally say “Hello” to Hope and a very literally firm “Goodbye” to Hate, friends! That is, after all, the Progressive Left way, which BTW must surely explain at least in part the sheer amount of electoral success that we on the Left have had in the UK over the past few years.

Lefty’s Friday Selection Of Tweets, 28th July-4th August

Hello, friends.

And I expect you’ll all be thrilled to hear that today I have “reassigned” myself as an 8-year-old female horse, who has also just given birth to two foals, of indeterminate gender, aged 3 years and 10 years respectively! Amazing, eh!

Night mare [Groan! – J.C.]

Of course, Hard-Right elements will doubtless make their usual bile-filled Hate Comments, e.g. “this really is a load of utter nonsense!”, or “you really are one sad loony, Lefty!”

Our Wilts Police, friends!

But when Our Wilts Police smash down their front doors at 6am one day soon, as part of the new, kinder and gentler policing of Hate Crimes, they will soon have second thoughts – and, just for once, these won’t be Hate Thoughts!

Anyway, enough of all this in-depth analysis of the frightening number of Hate People in our so-called society – which Thatcher first claimed didn’t exist, and then totally destroyed – friends! Here’s my latest batch of tweets. My thanks, as ever, to everyone whose tweets I’ve reused here.

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 22: Five Comments (The Hated T. May; The Hated Brexit; Extreme Brexit; The Hated Opinion Polls; Hard Brexit) From September & October 2016

Hello, friends.

And first an explanation as to why I haven’t written anything in Our Guardian recently!

Can’t be bothered, friends!

The answer, friends, is quite simple! I am – literally – sick to death of the nonstop racist neoliberalism being viciously peddled by that Far-Right rag, and have decided that I should not sully myself by contributing there any more.

Our Independent, friends!

Instead, I am planning to read Our Independent, which some of my friends have told me is more progressive; and if it is to my taste, may contribute there. Unfortunately, so far, I have been unable to – literally – get my hands on it; whenever I look for it in newsagents, they never have so much as a single copy in stock. What a testament to its widespread popularity that must surely be, eh friends!

Anyway, enough of this in-depth analysis [Ha! J.C.] of the Far-Right Media. Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed’s Greatest Hit-ettes: five pieces I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian last September and October. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

Theresa May’s incompetence is creating an opposition within her own party (article by Polly Toynbee, 13.9.16)

Friends! The Hard-Right neoliberal racist Bullingdon Bully Boy May is quite literally the worst Prime Minister to be inflicted on this so-called country – which Thatcher totally destroyed – since Our Gordon left Downing Street in utter triumph in May 2010, having courageously left the Election till the last moment, and which the Tories literally stole by the typically shabby neoliberal trick of amassing more votes than anyone else.

Fortunately, though, practically everyone in this country, apart from a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Far-Right racists and bigots who voted against Our EU in June – and who, friends, represent absolutely nobody but themselves – now realises that we have been literally sold a pup, and that this totally unelected Tory Government, which is literally worse than Hitler, is, quite literally totally unelected.

And then people wonder why those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – are literally revolting!

OECD in Brexit warning U-turn as it revises growth forecast for UK (report, 21.9.16)

Friends! It is literally obvious to those of us who are not completely blinkered by Hard-Right neoliberalism and Far-Right Brexitism that the vote for Brexit has been an utter catastrophe for the so-called British economy, which Thatcher literally destroyed.

The tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racists and bigots, who misguidedly voted against Our EU in June – and who, friends, speak for absolutely nobody but themselves – should be utterly ashamed of their totally sickening and disgraceful Hate Votes, which have now resulted in a literal tsunami of Far-Right Fascism, i.e. the widely-hated, totally unelected Bullingdon Bully Boy May, who Jeremy literally destroyed in PMQs today, or would have, had she not in a fit of total cowardice cancelled it.

Whatever the so-called OECD – a neoliberal tool of the 1% and the Banksters, friends – may now claim, all objective surveys conducted by impartial economic experts, i.e. me, show that the predictions made by those of us in the Remain Camp, including Our OECD, who surely cannot be gainsaid – namely, a total collapse of Our Stockmarket, an Emergency Budget with higher taxes and cuts in Our Public Spending, economic Armageddon, World III, accelerating Climate Change, higher roaming charge and redundancies in Brussels – have all come true with a vengeance, or at any rate will, literally at the moment that Article 50 is invoked.

And then people wonder why those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – are literally revolting!

We’re marching towards extreme Brexit. Someone must speak for the 48% (article by Jonathan Freedland, 7.10.16)

Very well said, Jonathan. I agree with absolutely everything you’ve written, whatever it was.

Whether they realise it or not, the tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right racists and bigots, who misguidedly voted against Our EU in June, are either members of the 1%, or are their running-dogs. And in either case, they speak for absolutely nobody but themselves.

We, the 48%, are the majority, and we must – and literally will – prevail.

Brexit statement: David Davis rejects calls for MPs to vote on negotiating terms – Politics live (10.10.16)

Friends! This 17-point poll lead for the Tories proves two things:

1. Labour is still far too Right-wing for the British people. Only when truly Socialist policies are promulgated, along with deselection of Hard-Right elements, e.g. most of the Shadow Cabinet, and practically all of the Parliamentary Labour Party, can Labour’s woeful poll ratings be improved.

2. So-called opinion polls are merely neoliberal tools of the 1% and Banksters, and therefore cannot be trusted, e.g. last year, when they predicted that Our Ed would literally win the General Election, failing to notice that in fact the Far-Right Miliband’s Hard-Right neoliberal policies would literally drive millions of Labour voters to vote for the Tories and UKIP in protest.

No wonder, friends, that those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are literally quite a few of us, friends, e.g. those of us here on CiF – are literally revolting!

EU council president: it’s hard Brexit or no Brexit at all (14.10.16)

Friends! As those of us in the Remain Campaign – we are, after all, the 48%, which is as close to a majority as it is possible to get – have repeatedly warned, Hard-Right Brexit is, as well as being totally illegal, literally a disaster for the British economy, which Thatcher totally destroyed.

Our friends in Europe are simply giving us the friendliest possible warning that, should Britain be so foolish as to leave Our EU, they will punish us in the severest possible way, which after all is what true friends tend to do if their clear and totally reasonable orders are flagrantly disobeyed.

And Britain has much to fear from Our EU friends, friends! The British £ is now quite literally worthless, whilst the Eurozone literally powers ahead with levels of unemployment, particularly among the young in Greece and Spain, that Britain’s totally unelected Tory Government can only dream about. Meanwhile, there are reports that many of Germany’s and Italy’s banks are – contrary to the scurrilous lies peddled by Hard-Right elements, e.g. the Far-Right BBC – practically solvent.

WAKE UP, friends! Britain is literally sleepwalking in to a Hard-Right Brexit nightmare, from which there will literally be no escape! Let us simply ignore that tiny handful of 17,410,742 Far-Right racist bigots who viciously voted against Our EU – and who, let it never be forgotten, friends, represent absolutely nobody but themselves – and work together with our friends in Our EU, which is widely acknowledged by all objective and heavyweight commentators, i.e. myself, to be the envy of the world, and indeed elsewhere.
