So, I’m thinking of taking a break from fic writing after I finish Happy Accidents (it still has one or two chapters left). I have so much reading I need to get to, and I figure these last couple weeks before the show comes back will be perfect. I may (it’s pretty…
besides, I need to use the Family Brain for a bit :)
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
i almost pissed myself reading this
A candidate for the UK Independence Party today sparked anger by making remarks that were interpreted as being logical extensions of the manifesto of the UK Independence Party, causing further embarrassment for the party.
The candidate, who is expected by some improbable quirk of mathematics to actually become an MEP later this year made remarks about immigrants, muslims, LGBT people, and women that both deeply offended these communities and were entirely in line with the policies of UKIP.
Labour spokesperson Sandra Oundbyte stated “This is clearly an outrage. I’m all for an open political process and freedom of speech, but for a UKIP candidate to say things that we all assumed UKIP candidates all thought is just horrifying.”
A Lib Dem spokeperson whose name escapes our memory said “This is clearly a symptom of a broader problem. An inordinate amount of media time and influence is being given to a party with a tiny share of the vote and an even smaller number of elected officials, and- I’m being told I have to stop speaking to you now.”
Nigel Farrage, pictured as always in a small pub drinking a large pint and doing an impersonation of Mr Toad, dismissed the incident, saying “Look, this is a fuss about nothing. Reporters are always trying to claim that the comments of our candidates and the things we write and put in our manifestos are indicative of what we say and think. It’s a sad day for this country when a politician is pillories merely for saying, writing, and doing things that would have been considered old fashioned in the nineteenth century.”
No other UKIP spokespeople were made available, for fear that they would pull a Godfrey Bloom.
Oh Sal. Here’s hoping he gets to design a wedding dress. I MIGHT DIE.
You’re hoping for a Morgan / Beverly wedding too?
Every year on International Women’s Day the following comment gets made in various forms of social media:
"But why isn’t there an international men’s day?"
Well, there is. It’s November 19th. It’s been going on since 1999, and you didn’t notice.
Why didn’t you notice? Well, probably because apart from this once a year joke (which goes just fine with complaints about the lack of a White History Month) you don’t have many causes to stop and think about society having disadvantaged your gender. Unless you’re that pillock who runs the @sexismbusters account on Twitter you probably don’t feel like women are structurally and systematically oppressing men. When the desk is stacked in your favour it’s easy to accept this as the natural order of things and maintain the fantasy that you’re in an egalitarian society.
We’ve had an International Men’s Day for fifteen years. And you didn’t notice.
