Boris + Corona = BoJona

BoJona-20 – The toxic viral strain of Boris Johnson’s bumbling bluster combined with the twin perils of Corona Crisis + Brexit Disaster aka a Britastrophe

I listened to Boris Johnson’s speech at the Tory Party Conference last week, which I dubbed BoJona-20. I noticed that BoJona-20 was virtually “content free”. The “beauty” of not including content in your talks (sic) is that there is little to take issue with, as long as you don’t get found out! 🙁 It rather seems that people listen for the jokes and are happy to accept empty promises, even though they have been fooled before. More fool them.

No 10 uses a Tombola machine to generate “BoJona-20”. They fill the machine with Post-It notes to generate random catchphrases. This is how David Bowie generated lyrics using his “cut up technique” in the 1970’s. Of course Bowie was not making decisions to determine whether people lived or died in The Laughing Gnome, so the context is different.

Having swallowed 30 minutes of garbage from BoJona-20, I was compelled to write a song to re-assemble Johnson’s garbage as a Lo-Fi groove called BOJONA-20 – an homage to garbage. Download copies of the song on Bandcamp – all proceeds go towards our continued activism to suspend Brexit.

BoJona-20 is possibly the most toxic virus on the planet. Johnson’s lies destroy trust and belief.  The continuing act of lying means that nobody trusts anything that politicians say or do any more. This takes us to a new low point in politics. Just today Johnson has changed a firm deadline (again) for Brexit talks to end, so that he can bully the EU into giving more concessions. It never pays to reward bullies.

“It is the third unilateral deadline that Johnson has imposed without agreement.” Michel Barnier

Snitch on MPs for breaking international law

My friend and collaborator Rachel Ashley wrote a rant about the industrial scale lies from Boris Johnson. Edited slightly here for those that remain unaware of the facts:

Think this is bad? Wait until January. Still, it’s what the shitters wanted and they definitely knew what they were voting for. The reality of internal borders in Kent, 72 mile lorry queues, increased shipping costs, hassle at borders leading to rotting food and deaths from critical medicine shortages, satellite systems, radioactive isotopes, internal borders, cancellation of your bank account if you live in Europe, flight delays or possibly no flights at all between UK and Europe, portaloos in all areas where there are borders. Oh, and food shortages, possibly issues with clean water, power, problems if you deliver services and goodbye NHS. You fucking idiots. Own your Brexshit. But hey, you get your blue passport back.

Kent : Operation Pisspot

Following the announcement by Boris Johnson that he is going to build 50 000 more toilets in Kent to help lorry drivers stranded in villages and towns after Brexit, we invite you to join us at Lenham village on Saturday 17 October from 11.00 – 13.00 to celebrate Kent : Operation Pisspot. See Portaloo for the invite to the event. Here are some of the greatest pictures and artists’ impressions of this magnificent development.

Meanwhile, Operation COVID piss up in a brewery continues, with Johnson repeating the mistake of too little too late from February. The phrase prevention is better than a cure springs to mind. He was advised to have a circuit breaker on September 21. Here we are nearly a month later and he continues to try to entertain us rather than make the difficult decisions. A late circuit breaker is probably inevitable. By then we may have “baked in” more than 30 000 unnecessary deaths.

Meanwhile our “Chief Negotiator” Sir David Frost reports that the EU still fails to understand that it is the UK that wish to leave the EU and that they, the EU, must destroy their enterprise so that England can rule the waves. How silly of them to forget that we voted for Brexit. Johnson is now on his 4th missed deadline that HE set, but of course this is someone else’s fault as well … Please tweet David Frost to correct his delusions.

Cummings’ laundry

Another piece of very dirty linen has emerged from Dominic Cummings’ laundry basket. Almost 20 years ago, he had a cottage built on land adjacent to his father’s farm house, without planning permission. Consequently, he never paid council tax on it either. The Valuation Office estimates that the outstanding tax on it amounts to between £30,000 and £50,000.

Breaking the law

There is apparently a statute of limitations on planning permission which allows unauthorised building to remain untouched after a certain period. Durham Council cannot therefore have the cottage demolished. However, there is no such loophole for arrears of council tax. Nonetheless, Cummings has somehow managed to arrange that he should be let off.

STOP PRESS : Durham Council have mounted an appeal to claim back Cummings’ tax evasion

Listen to Durham Town – The Cummings and Govings Mix

This is nothing short of scandalous. Any ordinary citizen who fails to pay Council tax, particularly on a property whose existence he had deliberately hidden from  the authorities, would surely be required to pay not just the full amount of tax but interest and perhaps penalties on top. Failure or refusal  to pay would normally result in a jail sentence. Yet Cummings, who likes to describe this cottage as a ‘pile of cement blocks’, gets off scot-free.

Cummings' Cottage
Cummings’ pile of cement blocks …

Regulation 47 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 states people can be given prison sentences for not paying council tax  if they have done so due to “culpable neglect”.  This regulation is  strictly applied. Nearly 700 people were  imprisoned between 2010 and 2016 for not being able to pay their council tax,  with a further 7,000 handed suspended orders threatening imprisonment. An extreme case was that of Melanie Woolcock of Porthcawl who was jailed for a £4742 Council tax debt she could not pay . She was a single mother and was caring for an elderly neighbour when she lost her job and fell behind in her council tax payments. Woodcock spent 40 days in prison before being released in view of her poverty. Comparing her degree of ‘culpable neglect’ with that of Dominic Cummings can only arouse a feeling of sickening disgust at the immunity he receives and the Government which grants it to him.

This new demonstration of his immunity from the law follows on from his notorious visit to Durham in complete disregard of COVID regulations and his trip to Barnard Castle, claiming that he was having his eyes tested. The fact that he thinks this ridiculous excuse should suffice for the authorities, the press and  the British public shows the total contempt in which he holds us all. Now he is evading tax at a time when the rest of us will shortly face major tax increases. By shielding him from any penalties, Johnson, Gove and the law officers who disgrace their profession make themselves accessories to his deceptions and his illegalities.

There are other areas where Cummings activities raise very serious legal doubts. These will be dealt with in a coming issue where we ‘wash’ more of Cummings’ laundry.

Shock and Awe

Shock and Awe

The recent announcements from Boris Johnson’s Government indicate that Dominic Cummings‘ “Shock and Awe” campaign is in full swing to subjugate us into accepting Brexit under the safe umbrella of COVID crisis for a 2021 “Britastrophe“. Here’s what “The Sun” has to say about shock and awe:

In cased you doubt some of these satirical headlines, here are the links to the base stories behind the Government’s cynical shock and awe campaign to bludgeon us into accepting any kind of Brexit deal.

322 Tory MP’s vote to starve children

Priti Patel crushed by law courts for threatening to remove migrants without access to justice

20% food price hike after Brexit

Kent – Toilet of England

It is well-known in personal situations, that people who are confused or frightened tend to accept any kind of advice that is given to them. This is why counsellors do not offer advice. The campaign by the Government is designed to gaslight us into a state of terror, where we will accept almost anything they choose to do. There is no way back from such policies and Dominic Cummings’ guidance comes directly from the tactics of Nazi Germany. I predict that Britain will be in a state of war with itself by mid winter 2021 under the combined effects of Corona + Brexit. We cannot rid ourselves of Corona, especially since Government actions are specifically designed to cause more deaths than necessary. However, we can rid ourselves of Brexit, to properly focus on the disease. Take action today using the actions below.

SuspEND Brexit

Dither and Delay

On September 22, Boris Johnson was advised to go into lockdown. Six weeks later we are going into lockdown … but not until after we have infected more people via Halloween and Guy Fawkes night. Since there is a cycle of several weeks between infection and illness,, most of the unnecessary deaths from COVID are already baked in. Johnson used dither and delay back in February whilst minting 50 p Brexit coins, bonging Big Ben etc. instead of listening to experts. This accounted for 30 000 unnecessary deaths. It is not fair to say that Johnson is doing a good job on COVID.

Dither and Delay means Deaths

Too little, too late
Too Little, Too Late again

As a cynic, you might suggest that the only reason Johnson dithered was to ensure that people were too busy / frightened / shocked etc. to notice whether he “Gets Brexit Done”. Cummings promised “Shock and Awe” in autumn and the current wave of fear is exactly their plan. We will have just 11 days, JUST 11 days to “Get Brexit Done” once we lift lockdown. Michael Gove has already admitted that lockdown might be extended past December 02. It is sheer madness and irresponsibility to combine Corona Crisis and Brexit Disaster for a Britastrophe at this point.
