Biden my time.

This hasn’t been widely reported but I was going to be the poet at Joe Biden‘s inauguration. He wanted me to do my poems ‘Ham’, ‘Jam’ & ‘Spam’ as he saw them as a symbol of hope, showing that despite America currently being divided all Americans have the potential to come together as sandwich fillers. However due to Covid19 I wasn’t able to travel, so they gave the gig to some young poet (I’m not sure what happened to her). Should the pandemic be resolved in 2025 I’m sure I’ll get an invite from President Ivanka.

Extrapolate that!

Brecon & Radnorshire voted to leave the EU by 51.9%-48.1% in 2016.

The by-election was triggered because the Conservative MP had been found guilty of committing expenses fraud. In their wisdom they put the very same man to stand as a candidate.

Plaid and the Greens stepped aside to allow the Lib Dems a clear run, in a Remain Alliance.

The Brexit Party took votes away from the Tories.

It looks like Labour voters voted tactically for the Lib Dems, preferring that to seeing the Conservative win the seat.

With all those factors at play, if anyone reckons they can workout what will happen in a General Election from this result, then they are better than me. (this could be the case)

Have you been sacked & then promoted?

I’m surprised more hasn’t been made of Boris Johnson’s cabinet appointments of Dominic ‘contempt of parliament’ Cummings, Priti ‘trade deals on hols’ Patel & Gavin ‘national security’ Williamson. Does this happen in the real world, have you been sacked only to go back to the same company a few months later in a more senior position? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Thanks.

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

I work at a Catholic school but I’m not Catholic. When I accepted the job I knew it was a Catholic school and I knew I wasn’t Catholic so when prayers are taking place I sit respectfully. I don’t turn my back.

Arron banks Nigel’s lifestyle.

Arron Banks gave Nigel Farage £450 000 to ‘fund his lavish lifestyle’.

a) Is this odd?
b) What does Arron get out of this arrangement?
c) How much would you give me to fund my less than lavish lifestyle?
d) Should I become friends with Arron?
e) Why does Arron spell his name with 2 Rs like no other Aaron?

How to counter a powerful narrative.

I watched a Brexit Party video the other day and basically their message is that ‘the people’ (which people) have been betrayed by the political establishment who have stopped Brexit happening. Not only is this seen as a betrayal apparently it’s also undemocratic. As someone who thinks Brexit is more complex than this, I still think the Brexit Party has very a powerful narrative. With this in mind how can other parties counter this narrative?

No experience required

If Evgeny Lebedev had asked me to become the editor of the London Evening Standard, for multiple reasons I’d have to say no. One being, my lack of experience.

What I definitely wouldn’t do is accept the position and continue with my job as a teaching assistant. I’d probably think that due to my lack of experience I’d need to put all my time and effort into the job. George Osborne faced with this situation, feels he can edit the paper alongside being an MP, a consultant for BlackRock and not forgetting his lucrative talks.

Other than time management concerns, it does seem somewhat dubious that a serving MP should be in a position where he has influence over a potential audience of 8m people every evening.

It  begs the question, what next? Alastair Darling becoming the controller of Radio 1xtra.

Normal service will be resumed shortly

You have to feel some sympathy for the right wing press, after the Red Cross said the NHS is facing a humanitarian crisis.

Firstly, people in this country like charity and charities and the Red Cross is one of the more established charities, which makes them harder to be attacked.

Secondly, people in this country are fond of the NHS, they like how we pay into it over our working life and it is free to use when we are ill. For this reason we are protective of the NHS, which makes it harder for it to be attacked.

Thirdly, the NHS is staffed by many non-British people, which doesn’t fit in with the right wing media’s rhetoric that all our woes are the result of immigrants.

You needn’t have too much sympathy, as I’m sure normal service will be resumed shortly and the immigrant bashing will continue as usual.

Brexit a blow to The Establishment?

It has been said the Brexit vote, was a vote against The Establishment, yet it will be overseen by Theresa May, Boris Johnson, David Davies and Liam Fox, (The Establishment).

How we leave the EU will be decided by the courts, (The Establishment) and will no doubt involve discussions in Parliament (the Establishment).

In addition to this big business (Nissan) have been given assurances about Brexit, your average small to medium businesses are not privy to.

Now it is reported that Sir Richard Branson is teaming up with former Prime Minister, Tony Blair to halt the Brexit process.

Whilst the biggest champion of Brexit, Nigel Farage is off hanging out with billionaire and President elect Donald Trump in a gold-plated lift.

And should Brexit lead to a downturn in the economy as is predicted, it will know doubt hit the poorest first and the hardest. Those people who were made to believe Brexit would change their circumstances for the better.

None of this strikes me as very anti establishment.

Til next time, be nice to each other.
