Tory spring conference opens floodgates for satire

It seems Boris Johnson’s only success at the Conservative spring conference was as the butt of a series of satirical comments.

He enraged people by comparing Ukraine’s battle for freedom with the vote in which 17 million people dragged the rest of the UK’s 68 million population into Brexit. Doesn’t work, does it?

Some of us got our own back by posting images on the social media – and they’re worth seeing.

Besides the pic above, here are a few more.

If you’ve spotted any, please send them in.

This one isn’t connected to the conference but is too good not to publish:

Rishi Sunak’s blue-screen speech dealt the Tories their just desserts

Sunak (left): he has now distanced himself from “Tweedledumber” on the right – but he won’t avoid public opinion while he remains a member of Johnson’s failed government.

This is what you get if you insist on being part of a national government that has caused nothing but harm.

Rishi Sunak – the Chancellor of the Exchequer – broadcast a speech about the cost of living crisis that the Tories have triggered (if we only had the energy price rises to handle, it wouldn’t be too bad – but we have to cope with Sunak’s Tory tax rises as well).

He also spoke about the damaging departure of Boris Johnson’s advisor Munira Mirza.

But he did it all in front of a blue screen. Big mistake.

Here’s what comedian Sooz Kemper did with it:

She hit the nail on the head. And even Sunak probably knows it.

The #UK’s going to Hell but at least we can #laugh about it

He’s a clown: but many people fear clowns…

I don’t know about you, but This Writer is seeing a noticeable increase in humorous posts about current political affairs.

I guess people have realised that they can’t do anything about all the horrible things the Tories are doing that they might as well try to have a few kicks while they can.

So, after Dominic Raab demonstrated his stupidity on live TV by telling us the police don’t investigate crimes retrospectively, and then admitted that a party had taken place at Downing Street during lockdown, in breach of all the rules…

…a sub-editor at the Star came up with this:

Nice one!

On another tack, a Twitter user pointed out a curious correspondence between the Tory attitude to the Downing Street party and Labour’s attitude to putting its own house in order:

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson joined a police drugs raid to publicise his clampdown on anybody who does drugs but isn’t in the government:

… and everybody had a field day:

Of course the sharpest comments are those that aren’t humorous – just true:

The future’s so dark, we all need a laugh

How do we, here in the UK, respond to the fact that our political so-called “leaders” have dumped us in the worst situation they possibly could?

By laughing at them – and the state they’ve put us in.

More serious action may follow, but for the moment, let’s enjoy what we can. No prizes for guessing any news stories that prompted the following:

There was another one on Facebook about the age difference between Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie: “It might be all sunshine now she’s 33 and he’s 56 but what about in 10 years’ time when she’s 43 and he’s in prison?”

Ian Botham as trade envoy – who next? Some ideas from the public

Michael Gove and Liz Truss: would it surprise anyone if she really did make him trade envoy to Columbia?

Was former cricketer Lord Botham made trade envoy to Australia because of his adversarial sporting relationship with that country’s representatives?

If so, then the people of the UK have come up with a few other ideas about the people vacant-eyed cheese-monger Liz Truss may be appointing to similar roles – and comment on how Botham is doing.

Here come the takedowns:

Starmer ridiculed again over retrospective exclusion of Labour members. Here are some great takedowns

Shamed: keep your eyes down, Keir – otherwise you’ll read another tweet taking you down.

Earlier this week, members of the public were scandalised to learn that former Labour General Secretary candidate Pamela Fitzpatrick is being threatened with auto-exclusion from the party, because she gave an interview to now-proscribed organisation Socialist Appeal.

She did it more than a year ago, when it was not proscribed and she had no reason to believe it ever would be.

Obviously, Labour’s position is ridiculous. The threat against Ms Fitzpatrick should be dropped and a fulsome apology issued. The party has put itself in yet another humiliating position.

But critics have decided that it’s not bad enough, and have provided their own contribution to the debate. Let’s enjoy some of them.

If This Writer hadn’t been kicked out of Labour for being an impartial political journalist, I might be worried.

They can’t get me on the Blockbuster rap but I fear my record on Rolos, and membership of the Tufty Club, may have mitigated against me.

Something for the weekend, Mr Hancock? Here’s what you’ve given us [HUMOUR/STRONG LANGUAGE]

The last day or so have been a hard time for Matt Hancock and he has said he would appreciate being left alone to come to terms with the revelations about his love life.

FAT CHANCE!

It’s bonanza time for those of us who enjoy mocking what’s he’s been doing with his banana.

I haven’t even seen much of what’s going around but I know you’ll get a kick out of this…

… and this (it’s long, which is probably more than we can say for Matt, and it’s enjoyable, which again…)…

Oh dear – it seems Facebook is demanding you watch it on that platform. Please do. In the meantime, here’s – the real – Matt strutting his stuff on stage with Therese Coffey. What a sex machine!

How about this comment on Hancock being busy saving lives?

A friend of mine has tried to raise the tone by comparing the photo of Hancock having that extra-regulatory snog with Gina Coladangelo with classical art:

Apparently the choice of colours make it much more like The Scream than what was probably intended:

You go for Klimt but you get Munch. I’m sure many women understand that sensation.

Never mind, Matt – you can always try to justify it by saying you’re an “Alpha Male”. Just don’t expect anybody to take you seriously… ever again.

One parting shot: here’s Jonathan Pie to bring it all home to Hancock in a big way. Be warned that he doesn’t hold back at all and the language is extreme:

This book will cheer you up immensely – and buying it will support Vox Political!

If ever we all needed cheering up, it’s now – and This Site has just the thing!

Many years ago, This Writer created a comic strip called Hard-Boiled Hitler to ridicule totalitarian politicians, their ideologies and behaviour – while also warning of the dangers they pose when a gullible public gives them any power.

It ran in Violent! that enfant terrible of the small-press comics world, and was an instant success (in the limited way afforded to all small-press comics).

Sadly, the first storyline was never completed. The artist passed away and the comic ceased publication.

But now – just when it’s needed! – Hard-Boiled Hitler is back in a new, high-quality book format that re-presents every episode published, plus the scripts of the remaining episodes that were never completed, so readers can see how the first volume of the story would have ended.

FAIR WARNING: the humour in this book is of the lowest possible kind. It is coarse; it is vulgar; it is also very, very funny. It is most definitely not for kids!

Sadly, HBH has been tarnished in recent years by lunatics who have tried to use it in support of their crazed accusations of anti-Semitism against me. They claimed that I had glorified the Nazis, even though – having read it – they must have known that the story does the exact opposite.

For this reason, the book also includes an article from This Site that explains the controversy surrounding the story, the accusations against it, their falsehood, and the reasons they were made.

It is a bit pricey. For reasons known only to the printers it will set you back £30. This has something to do with the fact that I’m offering it for distribution to bookstores around the world and apparently the cost of distribution has to be taken into account. I will be producing an e-book version as well, which is likely to be more appealing to those of you with limited means.

One reason I have decided to publish the book is to help fund my ongoing court case against Rachel Riley. I do find it upsetting that I’ve had to ask readers and supporters for donations without being able to give anything back.

So until such time as the court case ends, all my profits from sales of Hard-Boiled Hitler will go to my CrowdJustice site and will help finance the defence against Riley’s libel accusation. You can order your copy by clicking on the image of the cover (above) or by clicking on this link.

If you don’t want to buy the book, you are still invited to continue donating in the normal way. Please:

Consider making a donation yourself, if you can afford it, via the CrowdJustice page.

Email your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site.

Post a link to Facebook, asking readers to pledge.

On Twitter, tweet in support, quoting the address of the CrowdJustice site.

This is a new direction for me – and one that is potentially risky.

Please help make it a success. It will give you a giggle.

Here’s a January pick-me-up from the people who make funny videos about politics

Take off: Donald Trump is on his way out of the White House – and some of us can’t wait to see him go.

If you’re sick of the “relentless stream of misery on social media”, as one commenter on the Vox Political Facebook page put it, you need to cheer up!

Fortunately, there is an army of creative people who are working hard to lift our spirits with amusing images, cartoons and video clips.

For example: here’s one anticipating the departure of Donald Trump from the US Presidency – with a clever adaptation of a song from perennial movie favourite The Sound of Music.

I’ll try to find more. Meanwhile, feel free to follow Shirley Serban on Facebook and YouTube.

Another rotten week under the Tories. Let’s make fun of them

Tory UK, 2020: life is hard, and likely to get worse as the Tory jackboot grinds Covid-19 into our faces while claiming to be doing the exact opposite.

These creeps demand our absolute obedience or they will bring in the armed forces to crush us.

So let’s have a laugh at their expense, eh?

On Monday, @RussinCheshire tweeted his #TheWeekInTory, which is always a good read:

On Monday, Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK’s chief medical officer and chief scientific adviser, appeared on TV to explain why Covid-19 is running rampant through the UK despite everything we’ve been told to do to stop it. No member of the Johnson government was there…

On Tuesday, Boris Johnson announced his new Covid-19 related restrictions, which won’t actually halt the spread of the virus but at least make it seem he’s doing something, if you’re a brain-dead Tory sycophant.

Many of us aren’t. The image at the top is on response. Here are a few more:

Alternatively…

Wednesday was the day of Kexit – when it was announced that the UK would have an internal border after all – between the rest of us and Kent:

 

The UK’s new border: and the Tories can’t say it’s being imposed on us by anybody but them.

The end of the week got a bit serious, with the launch of the NHS Covid-19 contact tracing app that doesn’t like NHS Covid-19 tests and won’t do any contact tracing.

Then again, after telling us he hadn’t been to Italy – and telling the nation we all have to batten down the hatches and put up with another six months (at least) of Covid misery – now with added job losses and poverty – we find that Boris Johnson’s significant other, Carrie Symonds, was photographed on holibobs in Italy after all. All right for some, eh?

Makes you wonder about BoJob’s Russian connections who live there, doesn’t it?

If you have any more fun stuff from the week, feel free to send it via the comments.

We need all the smiles we can get.
