the shells are traps. you can use them but you have to be cautious.
if you learn to turn sideways you can move between them.

in theory the whole point of the left is to fight for the losers, the oppressed and the exploited.
to use weight of numbers to push back against wealth, power and influence lol
finn awaking again is the horizontal becoming self-aware and united. to push in a single direction and thereby topple the obelisk. obel1l.jpg

Bone's gonna Bone.

Apparently Mogg brought his kids and nanny outside to see the protestors and their "We must devastate the avenues where the wealthy live" banner.

I mean fair play to him for not cowering inside but getting your kids involved seems a bit dodgy to me.

It is hilarious watching various loons on twitter trying to link Corbyn with Class War though - and the huffy denials.

Sounds a bit of a stretch - isn't CW quite critical of STWC and therefore (presumably) of Corbyn?
Well on the one hand Class War have produced several huge banners calling Corbyn a wanker.

But on the other hand Ian Bone once attended a wedding that Corbyn was also at, and has been pictured with Corbyn's weird brother.

So it's impossible to say, really. Unless you ignore CW's entire history from 1983 rejecting parliamentary politics.

Haha! OK, "quite critical" then.

Another good piece in the LRB, this one more specifically about JRM:

Ignoring the bug is hard for Rees-Mogg because of his curious duality as, on the one hand, a member of Parliament performing a rolling re-enactment of steak-and-kidney-pudding Edwardian Britishness and, on the other, as a practitioner of the most weightless form of global capitalism: he’s a founding partner of Somerset Capital Management, a fund management firm that invests almost all its clients’ money outside Britain. Most of it goes to countries like Russia, India and China, known in the finance world as ‘emerging markets’. It’s almost as if there were two Jacobs: Jacob 1, the unworldly, fusty pedant and amateur historian who calls a bus an omnibus, treats Parliament as his London club and is never happier than when he can spend hours in the Commons debating whether a ‘papist’ like himself (he says he likes the term) may marry an heir to the throne; and his doppelgänger, Jacob 2, master of the spreadsheet and the Bloomberg terminal, able to weigh the comparative merits of a Korean microchip manufacturer and a Russian search engine, at ease with the jargon of the world-bestriding MBA class, shrugging off the opening and closing of factories in this or that country as no more than the fluttering of gills on Mammon’s throat.

Well, Woebot had me thinking awww poor little Jacob getting loo roll thrown at him.

Now I'm thinking they should have thrown rocks.*

*Recognising, of course, that the people throwing loo roll were probably as big if not bigger cunts then and now.

same situation here, so easy to become cynical. politicians have always been spin doctors, but the hypocrisy seems to be so blatant now. in a post-truth world, why bother to hide it, since there doesn't seem to be any meaningful pushback or consequences. endless articles expose the lying and hypocrisy yet they continue to get elected/re-elected/elevated.

This is a genuine question from an Eton scholarship entrance exam from a few years ago:

Is it time to admit that the place is really a sort of extremist madrassa?
