Fascist dictator chic: it’s the new Tory fashion craze!

Last Updated: October 9, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Why did Liz Truss wear the same dress for her Tory conference speech as fictional fascist dictator Vivienne Rook (played by Emma Thompson in Russell T Davies’ drama Years and Years) when she announced the introduction of concentration camps to the UK?

Was it because their policies are so similar? After all, it is current Tory policy to send refugees arriving in the UK to an internment camp in Rwanda.

Was Truss trolling us with a blatant visual clue about the direction she intends to take?

Certainly Years and Years creator Russell T Davies thought something was going on…

“This is getting weird,” he wrote on Instagram of Truss’s decision to wear the ‘Forever’ dress.

Is it, though?

I mean, Chloe Smith, the new Work and Pensions Secretary, quite clearly models herself on the dictator Servalan (as played by the late, great Jacqueline Pearce) from classic BBC science fantasy Blakes 7:


Chloe Smith.

They could have been separated at birth.

What This Writer wants to know is: who else among the current Tory cabinet is modelling themselves as well-known fascists?

Is Jacob Rees-Mogg about to go the whole hog and grow a little square moustache under his nose?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Hi Mike
    If ever we needed the FOIA 2000,it is now. The ICO have put me under a life time ban on using the FOIA and I am also the UK’s leading court precedent for vexatious cases.
