Today I’m going to try and be more measured – fuck knows why.
The government, made of sugar (an aftermath of the slave trade) and all things nice, is supported by Tory MPs who have consistently voted to (or turned a blind eye to):
- Privatising the NHS
- Voted not to increase NHS nurses’ pay
- Slashed NHS and Social care budgets
- Introduced Universal credit as a punishment system for the poor and oppressed
- Increase the spending on Mental health services and done nothing
- Promised to build 14 new hospitals (excluding the Nightingale)
- Lauded their radical solutions of support for the aged but, done nowt
- Celebrated austerity
Need I go on?
But all is well – their coronavirus plans and promises are in disarray – but nevertheless there they all were last night – including the bilious bibulous bonker bastard Boris outside number 10 – clapping his little fat piggy paws in praise of the NHS he sought to destroy – until he needed it!
Until the government needed to cling to their privilege and let us die on their behalf.
In the First World War soldiers going into battle weren’t properly armed. In this ‘war’ the NHS isn’t either. Why not? It couldn’t be because soldiers and nurses are predominantly working class and therefore expendable? Just as the old and infirm have been seen by Cummings and his preening poodle, shag-a-lot, Johnson, as natural waste. Or are these Tory c…ts just totally fucking useless?
Answers on an email please.
But they say ‘We love the NHS’.
Would I be correct in thinking that what they mean is – Fuck, we’re in the shit, and the only way out of not losing power is to come up with new bollocks about our love of the NHS?
Is this hypocrisy?
Capitalism, and in its neo-liberal iteration, is not for the benefit of all, but for the benefit, the PROFIT, of those who – currently – own the means of material and intellectual production.
Doctors of medicine, metaphorically, sign the Hippocratic oath to care for the sick.
The lickspittles of capitalism, sign with the broken bones and the blood of all they oppress, their Capitalist oath, asserting their rights, exercising their duty, to exploit all in pursuit of profit and extol their virtues via the Daily Mail with the goodness of their hearts.
Money, money, money, that’s what they adore.
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
I have learnt that my rants become loquacious.
So, let me be focussed.
Until we call them out. Tell them they lie. Until we take responsibility, then we have nothing to blame but ourselves as we complain of our chains.
We have moved beyond what Lenin said – arm the proletariat, not because it needs to defeat the ruling class but because it needs to defeat itself.
We need to defeat our own cynicism.
To do this we must abhor hypocrisy.
Make the world anew. Now is the time. The last time?
Unless we act we are the problem.
For the new better abnormal normal.
