'Can we please get this f**king culture war going?' ask Tories

THE Conservatives have admitted to being ‘bloody frustrated’ that the UK is still more interested in pandemics and vaccines than their new ‘war on woke’. 

Like a group of bull-necked men milling around a town centre statue looking for a fight, Tory MPs and their friends in the media are irked that their opponents have not even bothered to turn up. 

Iain Duncan Smith said: “We’ve announced we’re building a new Museum of Benevolent Empire, paying tribute to Cecil Rhodes, Captain Cook, Major General Lachlan Macquarie and the baddie from Braveheart, and what’s the reaction? F**king crickets. 

“There’s no point shouting about how much stronger and happier Britain was when homosexuality was illegal – homosexuals included – when nobody’s listening. Frankly you just look a dick. 

“These kids want to get off their TikToks and pay attention to a load of old white men spouting nonsense about historical figures they’ve never heard of. 

“How else are we supposed to distract from how f**king terrible we are at running Britain? Hey kids, Florence Nightingale kicked Mary Seacole’s arse. What do you think about that? 

“Wait, that teenager walking past is making the wanker sign at us. Thank God! It’s on! The culture war has begun!”

Opportunity, the future, families: Keir Starmer's maddeningly vague political vision

No ifs, no buts. If we are to move ahead together into a brighter tomorrow we must commit to an incredibly vague set of statements no human being could really disagree with. 

We must proceed into the future, not the past

Yesterday is yesterday; today is today. Tomorrow, however, is tomorrow. And I put the government on notice of that fact. We are moving forward – one day at a time, if necessary.

Opportunity. That is a good thing, not a bad thing

There are some, no doubt, who would regard ‘opportunity’ as a dirty word; who would say ‘If an opportunity comes your way, pass it up’. We in the Labour Party are not anti-opportunity. We are also pro-food, and pro-fresh air.

No ifs, no buts – families

Everyone is a member of a family. If you are not a parent, or child, perhaps you are a member of the Sainsbury’s or Amazon family. Or maybe you have no relatives at all. In which case, you are in a family of one. For Labour, if you are in a family, and you all are, you come first.

The moment is now

This is the moment. Yes, that particular moment has now passed. But here is the next moment. Under Labour, the moment will always be the moment and the moment, no ifs, no buts, as we go forward into the future, is now.
