fridgepunk: A sign on garrus' back reading "Shoot a rocket into my ugly stupid face" (Default)
Once again reality proves itself to be a giant cliché held together with irony. Bonus points for it also being one of those things where the election advisor is just trying to agressively elbow nudge the government into holding an EU referendum (AKA any story involving the tories talking about UKIP ever).

For those across the seas who have so many better things to care about than the english and welsh #batmanreference elections... I mean the local police commissioner elections; Basically what you need to know are that UKIP are a single issue party that wants "out of Europe" (while never explaining what that means exactly) and the brand new position of "Local Police Commissioner", that Nick Clegg invented to ensure that england sees one election done by AV*, involves an elected person being in charge of local police finances or something.

Now you may think that there is literally no reason why UKIP would stand candidates in that election and you would be right, but they did anyway because Nigel Farage has too much money and his family really wants him to retry the plane stunt he did during the last general election.

You may also think that in an election where national voter turnout couldn't even break 20%, a party that got almost as many votes nationally as Ms. Spoiled Ballot (former-MP for Staines) wouldn't be considered a threat by the party in government, even if in this particular case where the party in government have lost every byelection since the last general one to the only remaining rival and they couldn't even get a majority in the general election in the first place.

It's almost as though Mr. Fabricant is making shit up in a sad parody of political maneuvering, but how could anyone not trust someone with what appears to be Micheal Hesseltine's face and Boris Johnson's hair? (aside from "very easily", obviously...)

* Ironically the last election I've participated in that used the first past the post system was the AV referendum, and I've voted in 4 elections since with 3 of them using the AV systems and the fourth using I think was the transferrable vote system... literally clichés held togehter with irony...

Ben Brown: "But did you say anything or throw anything that might have made the police view you as a threat?"

Jodi McIntyre: "Do you really think that a person with cerebral palsy in a wheelchair could pose a threat to police who are armed and armoured?"

Seriously, the BBC asked a person who had explicitly already mentioned that he cannot move his own wheel chair if he threw something at police, and suggested that he might have been "rolling towards" the policeline, which is about a hundred yards away, and therefore have seemed like a threat that justified being dragged across concrete.

Of note is that if you watch the larger video over at the BBC, watch at 00:28, where you can see one of the police officers who attacked Jodi being pulled away by his jacket by other police officers in the classic "leave him terry he's not worth it!" motion generally reserved for the mates of drunk idiots who've started a fight in a pub.

Ben Brown is of course the reporter who asked protesters on thursday "why are you starting fires? What does that achieve?" to which multiple protesters had to try to explain the concept of it being cold, in parliament square on an unusually cold december evening.

There is at least one petition going round asking for Ben Brown to apologise for his disgraceful behaviour, though emails and phone calls to the BBC would also be nice.

..And that's me never ever again voting for a libdem.

ETA: just heard some goatfucking shitstain come out with the statement "well [toryfuckhead who's name I don't really care about] is a libertarian, so the liberals will like him." NO WE WON'T, NUH UH.

They then went on to praise the Plucked Tellytubby on being as politically "shrewd as Boris Johnson", so either this idiot needs to get some fucking sleep or needs their toy microphone taken away from them until they grow up.

What the fucking hell!?

ETA 2: THE OMGWUTNAOWING: William Haige, is foreign secretary, Clegg as Deputy PM and Cameron as PM... ffs, we've got two plucked and waxed teletubbies and the baby in the fucking sun - this isn't a government; it's surrealist internet pornography! I half expect people in guy fawkes masks to come along during cameron's speech and fit him with a giant pair of tits and a futacock, as per ancient 4chan tradition. WHAT THE FUCKING HELL!? Where the hell did Haige come from!? he was reasonably okay when he was doing his stupid history programs on the BBC and being all with the Opik style "haha, I really lost that election hard didn't I?" jokes, but no you fucking giant baby in a suit, gtfo and diaf, you lost, no creeping back into government just because morph's albino friend there has managed to lose slightly less well than you did. Fuck and polish the top of your head some more.
