Misbehaving as I meet deluded lefty scumbags in Islington

I was walking a deluded lefty to Highbury tube station this morning but as we approached we encountered the assembly the start of a “demo” against wicked Tory cuts. The victim in this case is the world’s third largest employer (viz the NHS) but the moaning and wailing from the crowd was against cuts in general. Yes, I know Government spending is in fact increasing but that does not fit in with the narrative of the left. Tories = cuts = wicked.

And so as we approached the tube one lardbucket who looked as if he had not encountered a bath in quite some time tried to thrust a pamphlet into my hand “stop the cuts” he said. I could not be bothered to point out that Government spending was in fact increasing. So I just said “No, I want more cuts, in welfare payments, in Government spending and in taxes for lower paid workers.” I am not sure that the protester (whose life is, I bet you, funded by the State) was expecting such a response in Islington and he looked a bit baffled as if I had said “the moon is made from cheese.”

Before had time to think of a response I was hustled swiftly on and reprimanded for being a) too right win and b) confrontational. When is the great demo protesting about how this hopeless Government is not cutting enough/at all planned for? I am happy to attend with my placard “Cut taxes for the poor workers,” “Heather Frost welfarism isn’t working,”  “No more cash for kleptocrats.”I’ll be there.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is Big Sofa fecked and why - after 4 years of losses - Virgin really should be

Two house keeping matters. First please send Darren pictures of the view from your window & your work space during the lockdown to provide a daily distraction. Darren has kicked off the series with a snowy scene from his Canadian bolt-hole HERE.  Second please do offer nominations for the rogue AIM & Standard List directors. If you are afraid of libel just nominate a name & company and Nigel and I will do the rest in a song & dance presentation on May 8. Details and nominations are HERE. In today’s Bearcast I look at the demise or otherwise of Carluccio’s, Virgin Airlines and Big Sofa (BST) and perhaps of the AIM casino itself.
