I’d totally forgotten about the Conversative party “Are you thinking what we’re thinking?” campaign. Thank God. This image was taken by Binary Ape on Flickr.
This reads: “How would you feel if a bloke on early release attacked your daughter?” – the scrawl in the bottom left-hand corner says “shocked, coz I don’t have a daughter”
Further to my earlier rant about the fantastic crunk journalism coating the pages of the Daily Mail like a greasy film, I would like to draw special attention to Melanie Phillips’s column featuring the somewhat puzzling headline: “Don’t write Dave off yet. He just COULD be the champion the middle classes so desperately need.”
While this conjures the rather attractive image of Sir Davey-boy, riding like a camp Arthur on a white steed leading an army of middle-management types puffing, wheezing and grumbling across a barren battlefield to write a strongly-worded letter to the council in objection of the number of ‘colours’ plaguing their once clean streets, I simply must object.
Why do the middle-classes so desperately need a champion? While I am aware that the increasing number of immigrants, the benefits given to the needy and the high tax levels can rankle the ire of the narrow-minded, I fail to see how it really hurts those people who are by definition quite comfortably well-off.
Phillips describes the middle-classes as being under-siege. My heart goes out to them. I’m sure the people of Stalingrad never had it so bad. I just thank the God I don’t believe in that the Russians weren’t subject to the same kinds of pressures as these oppressed white folk. Trapped within their three-bedroom, semi-detached houses these desperate souls have little to look forward to other than three square meals-a-day from Sainsbury’s, free health care, Sky TV, a new conservatory for spring, their five-door saloon car, a dog, a cat and a horde of snotty-arsed brats.
Fuck the middle-class. If they want more they should pull their finger out and become upper-class. I’ve no sympathy for you cunts. Try thinking about others and look at how much of a bunch of fuckers your own arrogant kids are before you start complaining about others.
