Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 34: Two Comments (On How Brexit Will Destroy The British Economy In 2017, and How Labour Can Ensure A Landslide At The Next General Election) From January 2017

Hello, friends.

And here’s the latest instalment of my comments in the Far-Right Guardian, which finally takes us in to 2017! Only two more instalments to go, now, friends! Bet you’ll miss them when they’ve finished eh! [You must be JOKING, Lefty! Personally, I can’t wait to see the back of ’em! – J.C. Oh Jeremy! You’re like a Far-Right Lone Trojan Wolf disguised as a paper tiger with a sore head, who’s got out of the wrong side of bed, and is now kicking up the daisies into the long grass behind the stable door, which will bring the whole neoliberal house of cards down on to its – literally – knees! – L. Whose knees, Lefty? The Trojan Wolf’s, or the house of cards’s? – J.C. Oh Jeremy! Don’t be so literally literal-minded! – L.]

Anyway, here are the pieces. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

Brexit’s slow-burning fuse will reach a powder keg this year (article by William Keegan, 1.1.17)

Well said, Mr. Keegan. I am quite sure that your forecasts for 2017 will be as accurate as all your previous ones, only even more so.

Friends! The – literally – toxic, hate-filled hatred of that tiny handful of 17,410,742 haters who viciously voted against Our EU last June, is literally hateful, and I for one – literally – hate it! And, indeed, them!

And if there’s one thing that I hate even more than this utterly hateful hatred, friends, it’s all the LIES of the Leave Camp, i.e. the firm pledge – emblazoned on the side of an omnibus of a distinctly Far-Right, racist tendency, for literally all to see – that in the event of a Leave vote, and I literally quote exactly what I clearly remember it said, namely:

Should there be a Leave vote on the 23rd June, then from 24th June, we in the Leave Camp solemnly swear that we shall personally spend an extra £350 billion per week on Our NHS, every single day. This firm pledge is personally underwritten and literally signed in blood by all leading Leave campaigners.

No ifs, no buts. That is what will happen.

Needless to say, friends, this vicious LIE turned out to be nothing more than a – literally – vicious LIE!

By contrast, we in the Remain Camp can – literally – hold our heads high, friends! Because every single one of our promises of what would happen in the immediate aftermath of a Leave vote – the Emergency Budget containing huge tax hikes and spending cuts, the massive hike in interest rates and therefore mortgage rates, the 18% fall in house prices, the Stockmarket crash, the – literally – worthless £, the instant plunging of the economy in to recession with the accompanying sharp rise in unemployment, enormous hikes in roaming charges, and – last, but by no means least – World War III – have literally come true with a vengeance; or even if they haven’t, will at any rate happen some time very soon (fingers crossed eh, friends)!

Faced with this contrast between the LIES of the Leave Campaign, and the unutterable honesty of those of us Remainers whose unimpeachable integrity is as obvious as the accuracy of our forecasts, is it any wonder that literally all of the 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigoted racists who viciously voted against Our EU last June – and all because they were taken in by the LIES of the Leave Camp re our NHS – have now changed their minds about this issue? And that, in fact, the 48% is now – literally – the 100%?

And no doubt, there’ll now be some Hard-Right elements in the Far-Right Guardian who’ll – literally – pop up here to accuse me of “writing utter and total rubbish”! Well, friends, “delusional” just isn’t an adequate word with which to describe such people!

Labour could slump to below 150 MPs, Fabian Society warns (2.1.17)

Friends! The news that Labour may get as little as 20% of the vote at the next general election and win fewer than 150 seats is, naturally, somewhat disappointing to those of us on the Progressive Left, who were hoping for a rather better result than that.

However, all is – literally – not lost friends! There is a way out of this – literally – quagmire! But it will require a great deal of courage and bold thinking!

Extensive polling evidence, carried out by me over the last several minutes, has shown that the overwhelming majority of people, i.e. me, are – literally – sick to the back teeth of this totally unelected Tory Government and its vicious attempt to drive Hard-Right Brexit through against the wishes of 100% of the 48% of us who were wise enough to see through the Far-Right Leave Campaign’s vicious LIES, i.e. the firm promise of £350 billion/hour extra for Our NHS – a LIE!

And, given that a 48% share of the vote would be enough to give Labour a landslide at the next General Election, the answer is surely clear:

1. Labour must move sharply to the Left. Let’s face it, friends: the neoliberal paradigm has failed utterly, leaving working people, e.g. students and the unemployed, in – literally – the lurch.

2. As part of this process, we must talk to ordinary people. We need to listen to their fears, their hopes, their dreams. And then we must explain to them, in language that even they can understand, exactly how and why they are totally wrong.

3. We must adopt some hard-hitting, radical policies that will appeal to working people everywhere! Here are just a few: More immigration, higher taxes on the Banksters and 1% coupled with more borrowing for investment in vital public services, e.g. Climate Change, which is – literally – destroying this world, and indeed elsewhere.

4. Above all, we must make sure that the ultimate catastrophe of Brexit – whether Hard, Soft, or simply half-baked (not a bad little joke there, eh friends! And to think Hard-Right elements claim that we on the Progressive Left have no sense of humour!) –  is avoided. Fortunately, we will have many Progressive elements on our side to help us with this: Our IMF, Our Bankers, Our City of London, Our CBI, Our Judges, along with Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Nick Clegg, and many, many other people and organisations who we can be proud to call our friends and allies!

If we can just do all these things, friends, I can – literally – guarantee that the next General Election, whenever the cowardly Bullingdon Bully Boy May plucks up the courage to hold it, will result in a landslide!

Lefty’s Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 8th-14th November

Hello, friends.

And I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank some Hard-Right elements who’ve been writing some rather entertaining comments in one of my recent Blogs! 

I have to confess that I’m not entirely sure that I understand exactly what they’re talking about – and nor, indeed, that they do, either! But if this has – literally – whetted your appetite, here’s a link to their comments:

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 33: Two Comments (On Our Liberal Fightback, and The Far-Right Obama’s Vicious Attack On Jeremy) From December 2016

Hello, friends.

And a – literally – very warm welcome to you all for the latest instalment of my comments in the Far-Right Guardian, which this week is just two pieces: a long one [Way too long, Lefty! – J.C. Oh Jeremy! I’m still – literally – smarting over your vicious comments about me to my followers on the Far-Right Twitter! Don’t – literally – push me too far! – L.] about the dilemma we on the Progressive Left face over Our the hated LibDems; and a shorter one about the Hard-Right racist Obama’s vicious attack on Jeremy, although in view of Jeremy’s recent behaviour towards me, I must reluctantly concede that the hated Our Obama may just have a point, whatever it is.

Anyway, here they are. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

The liberal fightback starts now. Can the Lib Dems lead it? (article by Jackie Ashley, 27.12.16)

Friends! For those of us on the Progressive Left – and there are many of us, friends, e.g. me – the Hard-Right so-called Liberal Democrats present a bit of a dilemma.

On the one hand, they viciously collaborated with the Far-Right Bullingdon Bully Boy Camoron for five full years, literally selling working people down the drain with their racist Student Loans scheme, which now means that literally nobody apart from Banksters and the 1% can afford to go to uni any more.

They – literally – turned a blind eye to some of the most reactionary policies ever, including attacks on some of the weakest and most vulnerable people in our society – which, never let it be forgotten, friends, Thatcher first denied the existence of, and then totally destroyed – e.g. Our Tube Drivers, some of whom were earning less than £50,000 per annum at the time.

And they tolerated other sadistic Tory measures, e.g. privatisation and then total destruction of Our NHS – literally the envy of the world, and indeed elsewhere, friends – along with ever-higher Bedroom Taxes, coupled with huge cuts in taxes on the wealthy, i.e. the top rate of tax which was slashed to 45% from the 50% rate that had been in place for several weeks before the ConDem junta illegally seized power.

Be fair, friends!

But, friends, I am – literally – nothing if not fair! And it must be conceded that Our Liberal Democrats have, in recent months at any rate, showed some encouragingly Progressive Left tendencies about certain matters that are – literally – dear to all Progressive-minded hearts.

Most important of all, of course, is Our EU. While – and it literally pains me to say this, friends – Jeremy has sometimes, distressingly, given the impression that he is less than totally committed to Our EU, Our LibDems have made it clear that while they accept the result of the Referendum, they also realise – as do all Progressive elements – that a tiny handful of 17,410,742 Hard-Right bigots and racists voted to Leave because they literally didn’t know what Leave MEANS, plus they were taken in by the LIES of the Leave Camp, i.e. £350 billion/day for Our NHS, a flagrant LIE!

And therefore, like most fair-minded people – e.g. me – they realise that before a final decision on Our EU is taken, a second Referendum should be held. And, fortunately, thanks to Friend Gina, this has already been arranged! Namely, a Referendum of Our Supreme Court Judges – who, I am reliably informed, will be voting 7-4 against Brexit – and which will be held next month. Note, friends: this will be a 63.64% vote in favour of Our EU, on a turnout of 100% – a far more convincing mandate than the 51.9% vote for Leave in June, which was on a paltry turnout of 72.2%. Plus, friends, Our Judges are well-informed and objective in their support for Our EU, and will not be taken in by any of the LIES of the Leave Camp that were emblazoned on Far-Right omnibuses about Our NHS, and which were total LIES!

Furthermore, friends, I am pretty confident that Our LibDems have now – literally – turned the corner as far as electoral popularity is concernd, and my latest polling evidence shows that, at the next General Election, they should be able to hang on to all but about nine of their current seats.

Having said all that, friends, I shall, naturally be voting Labour at the next General Election, as I always do. In my family, voting Labour is a noble tradition that goes back as far as the 9th century AD, and it would be – literally – sacrilege for me to do anything else. Me old Dad would – literally – never forgive me, and that is obviously the most important consideration when deciding which way to vote.

Corbyn hits back after Obama suggests Labour is disintegrating (27.12.16)

Friends! Let us disregard totally the Far-Right, neoliberal Obama’s vicious attack on Jeremy!

What, after all, does the Hard-Right Obama know about winning elections? He’s not won a single election in Britain, unlike Jeremy, who has won two consecutive Leadership Elections, the most recent one being in September, in which 300,000 odd people voted for him – including, so I am told, quite a few Kippers and Tories, such was the depth of his popularity!

Delusional, friends!

Obama also obviously isn’t aware of the recent Batley and Spen byelection, in which the Labour candidate won with 85% of the vote, friends! He is – and I say this in the nicest way possible, as part of the new, kinder and gentler politics – totally delusional.

So, friends, let us totally ignore the hated, Far-Right Obama, and his hate-filled, hateful message of total hatred for Our Labour Party! And let us instead – literally – pull together, ditch the Far-Right Red Tory Traitors – e.g. most of the PLP – and take the fight to the Tories!

If we can do that, friends, I can literally guarantee to you that the result of the next General Election will be – literally – a landslide!

Lefty’s Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 2nd-8th November

Hello, friends.

And what an auspicious day for this latest selection of Progressive Left tweets and Quick Summaries to be published!

As some of you may have heard, the Far-Right Twitter has finally raised its viciously restrictive 140-character limit to 280 characters, which means that I’ll now be able to cover the pressing issues of our time – e.g. Our Grenfell Tower – in far more depth. [Ha!J.C. Oh hello, Jeremy! How typical of you to butt in here, like a Hard-Right elephant in the room which never forgets that it’s not wearing any clothes, and which is attempting to jump the shark up the creek whilst being disguised as a paper tiger that’s hiding behind the bolted stable door in a viciously Far-Right house of cards!L. I didn’t understand a single word of that, Lefty!J.C. Oh really, Jeremy? Come to think, nor did I!L.]

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 32: Three Comments (On The Hated May’s Humilation; LIES About Jeremy; and How Labour Can Win) From December 2016

Hello, friends.

And here is yet another instalment of my comments in the Far-Right Guardian! Only four more to go! [Four more too many, in my opinion, Lefty! J.C. Oh Jeremy! Stop being a wet elephant in the room that never forgets that it’s wearing no clothes, and which is in fact a Far-Right Lone Trojan Wolf disguised as a paper tiger that’s hiding behind the bolted stable door in a collapsing house of cards!L. Can’t make head or tail of that, Lefty!J.C. Come to think, Jeremy, nor can I!L.]

Anyway, here are the pieces, all from December last year. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

‘Lonely Theresa May’ video at EU summit is Brexit in a nutshell (16.12.16)

Friends! This video should be compulsory viewing for every single one of the 17,410,742 Hard-Right racists and bigots who viciously voted against Our EU in June!

In addition to all the other disasters which have literally befallen this so-called country – which Thatcher destroyed – in the six months since that literally dark day, this one literally takes the biscuit! The Emergency Budget with its tax rises and spending cuts, the devastated economy, the plunging stockmarket, the literally worthless £, the enormous hike in roaming charges, even World War III … all these appalling consequences – correctly forecast even if not all of them have not yet come to pass (Brexit hasn’t actually happened yet, friends!) – literally pale by comparison with the fact that the hated May was totally shunned by Our EU friends today!

Seeing the Far-Right Bullingdon Bully Boy May utterly humiliated by Our EU friends was simultaneously hysterically funny for those of us on the Progressive Left – who are, of course, notorious for our great sense of humour – but also, of course, deeply, deeply tragic for Britain. This country has now become – literally – the laughing stock of the world, and indeed elsewhere!

Needless to say, certain Hard-Right elements are predictably claiming that Our EU friends were being “spiteful and petty”. Nonsense! They were simply behaving as any normal friends do, when their very reasonable orders have been totally disobeyed.

Fortunately, there is a very simple solution to this dreadful situation. The hated May should simply announce that the whole idea of Brexit was the most appalling mistake, and beg Our EU friends for forgiveness. A few token gestures, e.g. increasing our budget contribution by another £10 billion/year or so, should help to soothe the bad feelings; and of course, since as all objective and respected economics experts – i.e. me – have in any case recently produced figures showing that for every £1 we pay in, we get at least £1000 back in terms of economic growth, we would actually gain from this.

So, friends: let us just cancel Hard-Right Brexit, along with all the vicious LIES about spending £350 trillion/day more on Our NHS – another Leave Camp LIE! – and work together with Our EU friends to build A People’s Europe, where all Hard-Right populism will be totally smashed, and all decisions will be made by experts, whose impartiality and accuracy cannot be questioned – or, at least, not without serious consequences for those who question them.

Labour MPs deny Jeremy Corbyn stormed out of Christmas party (18.12.16)

Friends! Claiming that Jeremy “stormed out of a Christmas Party” is just another predictably vicious smear against Jeremy by the – literally – Far-Right Guardian.

Let me set the record – literally – straight.

Nothing of the sort happened, and in any case, it has been – literally – taken totally out of context.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/dec/18/labour-mps-deny-jeremy-corbyn-stormed-out-of-christmas-party#comment-89729298

 

New post-Brexit landscape could squeeze Labour out, warns new report (23.12.16)

Friends! There are four things that Labour must do to regain the support of working people (e.g. students and the unemployed):

1. We must move sharply to the Left. The neoliberal paradigm has utterly failed, and must be replaced with Socialism on the lines of that remarkably successful country, Our Venezuela in which obscene private wealth – indeed, any kind of wealth whatsoever – has been totally abolished.

2. In order to enable 1., we must now – literally – wipe out all the Far-Right Red Tory Traitors – e.g. most of the PLP – who infest our Party, by dint of deselection. (No Right of Appeal can be allowed for these miscreants, as a Party full of appealing people is the last thing we on the Left need at this particular moment in time.)

3. We must campaign whole-heartedly against Hard-Right Brexit, which is opposed not merely by Our 48%, but also by an increasing number of the literally tiny handful of 17,410,742 racist bigots who viciously voted against Our EU in June, but who now realise that all the Leave Campaign’s LIES about (and we all remember that Hard-Right Bus, don’t we, friends?) £350 trillion extra per day for Our NHS – a LIE, friends! – effectively immediately from June 24th, was actually a great big LIE, and who would now switch their vote to Remain.

4. Above all, friends, we must remember that the Labour Party is bigger than any of us – even me – and it is only by courageously implementing in full my very wise proposals here that Labour can ensure a landslide election result, whenever the cowardly Bullingdon Bully Boy May dares to call it!

Lefty’s Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 25th-28th October

Hello, friends.

And here’s my latest batch of tweets and Quick Summaries, which takes us up to and including Saturday (yesterday) – as mentioned in my previous blog, the larger size of my tweets (as a result of my using screenshots) means that I shall issue these compilations more frequently in future, so that they don’t become excessively lengthy, especially as the daily Quick Summaries can be as long as 260 words each!

Anyway, here they are. 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 Friday Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 20th-24th October

Hello, friends.

And, as some of my more eagle-eyed readers [Ha! J.C. Oh Jeremy! I’ve only written 11 words, and you’re already butting in with your literally snide remarks! Get back to your Prime Ministerial duties!L.] may have already noticed, I’ve recently started to use screenshots of tweets I’m mentioning. And this is the first Blog in which I’m only using screenshots, which means that you can now see what my tweets refer to without ever again needing to click on some Hard-Right link!

There are a few other advantages, too: notably, that when people delete their tweets or their accounts (both of which happen remarkably frequently), their tweets can still be read here! Also, if you are one of those people who have been viciously blocked by a particular tweeter, you can now read their tweet here!

Downside, friends!

The only downside is that, as a result, my tweets are taking up a lot more space, which means that a Blog covering a week’s worth of tweets is going to be far too long. My first thought was to spin-off the Quick Summaries of articles in to a separate Blog, but have now decided it’s too much work not the ideal solution. Instead, I shall simply publish this Blog more frequently [Arrggghhhh!J.C. Oh Jeremy! Don’t take on so! It’s not as though you actually have to read it! – L.] – possibly as often as twice a week, although hopefully more like every 4 or 5 days.

Anyway, here’s the latest selection, which takes us up to last Tuesday (another selection will be published on Sunday or Monday, which will bring us up to date):

Saveed Miliband’s “Guardian” Pieces, Part 31: Two Comments (On The Disappointing Fall In Unemployment After The Brexit Vote; and Why Jeremy Is Easily The Best Leader Labour Has Got) From December 2016

Hello, friends.

And a – literally – very warm welcome to the latest instalment of my comments in the Far-Right Guardian – only five more editions to go after this one! [Thank heavens for small mercies eh, Lefty! Personally, I can’t wait to see the back of this load of recycled garbage!J.C. Oh Jeremy! You obviously – literally – got out of the wrong side of your bed this morning! Not a good thing for Our Prime Minister to do!L.]

And whereas the first piece seems to illustrate that the arguments over the economic effects of Brexit haven’t changed much in the last 10 months, the second takes us back to those seemingly far-off days when Jeremy was under threat from various Hard-Right elements, e.g. much of the Labour Party! And if anyone had told me then that, just a few months later, he’d have won a General Election and become Our Prime Minister, I – literally – wouldn’t have believed them!

Anyway, enough of all this in-depth analysis of the vicissitudes of contemporary politics. [Ha!J.C.] Here’s the latest instalment of Saveed Miliband’s Greatest Hit-ettes. As ever, a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies, is provided under each piece.

 

UK employment falls in months after Brexit vote (14.12.16)

Friends! I know that many of you will be as – literally – heartbroken as I am that unemployment is continuing to fall, and that pay growth is picking up!

But, as Our George has so wisely remarked elsewhere in the Guardian, we must not despair! Brexit hasn’t happened yet, and there are ample grounds for hoping that things will soon get much, much worse – and maybe even sooner than any of us on the Progressive Left dare to hope!

One very encouraging factor is that economists generally have had such an impressive run of making consistently wrong predictions, e.g. being 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; incorrectly predicting a sharp economic downturn in the aftermath of a vote for Brexit … the list is practically endless!

And so the reason that we on the Progressive Left should be of good cheer is that, with any luck, these economists, having been wrong about so many issues for so long, may actually turn out to be correct in their predictions of rising unemployment in 2017!

And if you doubt this, just consider this important point. These economists 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 this time.

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!

Stay strong, friends, and please try not to let any positive economic news – literally – get you down. Remember, this is vicious Tory Britain where literally millions of people are working 95-hour weeks on Zero-Hour Contracts, being forced to read the Fascist Daily Mail in Hard-Right Foodbanks, while the hated Bullingdon Bully Boy May sadistically quaffs champagne whilst burning £50 notes in front of them.

It is definitely not a Socialist Paradise like Our Venezuela.

Jeremy Corbyn blames leadership contest for low poll ratings (14.12.16)

Friends! This is yet another desperate attempt by the Far-Right Guardian to smear Jeremy, by viciously quoting his comments from an interview in that notoriously Hard-Right rag, the so-called New Statesman!

But such smears will – literally – not stick because, despite the non-stop attacks made on Jeremy by a tiny majority of Far-Right elements, e.g. most of the Parliamentary Labour Party, Jeremy’s popularity just grows and grows amongst the Party membership!

Never forget, friends, that Jeremy was re-elected by 300,000 odd people in September, literally smashing the Hard-Right Red Tory Traitor, the widely-unknown, widely-hated Far-Right racist neoliberal Owen Jones (or was it Smith, friends? I literally can’t remember!), who was literally crushed by the sheer weight of votes against him, many of which were – so I am reliably informed – cast by Tories and Kippers, such was the depth of Jeremy’s popular appeal!

And yet, at a time when this totally unelected Tory Government is literally destroying Our NHS, Our BBC, Our EU and many other institutions which are cherished by those of us on the Progressive Left, these self-same Hard-Right elements claim that “Jeremy simply isn’t up to the job”!

What planet do these people live on? Certainly not the one I inhabit, friends! Because, in the view of most respected, objective and heavyweight commentators, i.e. me, Jeremy is literally the best Labour Leader that the Labour Party has as its Leader, and is easily the most popular!

Let us stop fighting each other just for once, friends, and – literally – turn our fire on the Tories! The electorate will never forgive us if we allow this totally unelected Tory Government to be re-elected, which would destroy everything that we on the Progressive Left hold dear, e.g. Our EU, which is the envy of the world, and indeed elsewhere.

And – please – let us now allow Jeremy to continue with the remarkable work that he has carried out over the past 15 months as Labour Leader, which most fair-minded people without an axe to grind would surely agree has – literally – transformed the Labour Party’s image, along with its electoral prospects.

Lefty’s Friday Selection Of Tweets And Quick Summaries Of Articles, 15th-20th October

Hello, friends.

And I’m sure you’re all as happy as I am that Our Police have finally decided to stop persecuting Our Criminals – who, after all, friends, are only trying to make a living by going about their unlawful business – and instead go after Hard-Right Haters, e.g. Brexit voters, instead!

Hate, friends!

I hate haters, don’t you, friends? Their literally toxic, hate-filled hatred is – literally – hateful, and I – literally – hate it. And it really must be stopped – and fast!

Thatcher, friends!

So, if you spot any of these despicable, hateful haters spouting hatred – e.g. “I don’t trust Corbyn”, “Maybe unlimited immigration isn’t always a completely unalloyed benefit?”, or even “Say what you want about Thatcher, she actually said what she thought!” – please don’t hesitate to report them to Our Police who, now they’ve been relieved of the burden of investigating unimportant and trivial incidents – burglary, arson, assault, murder, rape, terrorism etc. – are now able to devote all their time to investigating really important crimes, such as people’s Far-Right opinions.

And please never forget this important fact, friends: A Hate Crime is always a Hate Crime, irrespective of whether it has actually happened or not.

In-depth analysis, friends!

Anyway, enough of this in-depth analysis [Ha!J.C.] of the – literally – tidal wave of Hate Crime that is engulfing this so-called society of ours, which Thatcher destroyed.
