Sad weasel


I don’t mean to name-drop, but our new Home Secretary is the MP for nearby Hastings and Rye and, somewhere out there, there’s a picture of me standing next to her.

She’s a squishy, warmenist cow. *spit*

To celebrate my awesome new video card, I bought the last expansion to the Witcher 3, Blood and Wine. I haven’t played that game since February. Is it sad that I was really pleased and happy to see Geralt again?

Yes, that is definitely sad.

She ain’t just a warmenist she’s a raving, insane Europhiliac and a grasping little beast who has slithered her way to the top in record time.

You know all this stuff about the ‘political class’? Step forward Amber Rudd, the UK’s latest Home Secretary – and a perfect example of what is wrong with politics.

I say someone needs to come up with Ninja Chicken Witcher: Blood and Feathers.

Could be a thing, I tell ya.

Old and busted: government of the people, by the people, for the people.

The new hotness: government of the oligarchy, by the oligarchy, for the oligarchy.

Only rich assholes can afford to have liberal opinions…they’re so disconnected from it all that it’s just theoretical.

Wannabe rich assholes expound the same liberal opinions as the rich assholes as a kind of cargo cult; if they expound the same opinions as the rich assholes, they can become rich assholes themselves…it’s the only explanation I can come up with for their mass stupidity.

So as near as I can tell, there is no way a Donald Trump type could become PM. Right?

The PM is chosen by the other MPs. So unless you’re popular with the “cool kids”, you’re locked out. Someone like Trump who is unabashedly NOT a cool kid, in fact trashes the cool kids, has no chance.

I looked up Amber Rudd. A cool kid, if there ever was one. Minister of Global Warming, which is weird and kind of 1984. But she got nothing done since is earth is still cooling.

What does the Home Secretary do? Decide who gets out of prison? Who is let in country?

The most interesting wild card is Boris as Foreign Affairs Minister. That appointment alone made me a huge profit in the Popcorn Futures commodity market.

I nightly pray for a 2017 picture of The Boris and The Donald getting drunk together. That would, I believe make enough heads explode to both solve the world population problem and make New York City real estate affordable again. Why, DC might be uninhabitable for a generation.

Happy happy thoughts.

James Delingpole is always a breath of fresh air from that Island in the Atlantic. Here’s a thought from him that might cheer you a bit, Stoats:

But the thing you need to remember about the position of Home Secretary is that it’s a poisoned chalice. So much can go wrong for you – and almost certainly will for her. So it won’t be too long before Rudd’s fox is shot, I’m guessing.

Too bad she wasn’t axed along with the rest of the Department of Energy And Climate Change. Must be some sort of 3D chess move.

Trump is a teetotaler, also doesn’t smoke. Maybe they can make a joint address to the EU on the topic of “rigged systems”. That should explode a lot of heads in Belgium.

I’m still on the main game, and I think it’s one of the best, most rewarding RPGs I’ve ever played.

My dadgum viddy card just quit this weekend. I’ve never had one die. No modding, no O/C – just plain quit. I suspect an all too tight motherboard config that did something of which I’m totally innocent.

The pisser is that I’m so far out of the current information as to which card and motherboard config is the best, err, most economical, I’m wondering if I need to join the AARP.
