Bring Back The Blitz Spirit (Of Taxation)

Tax revenues as a percentage of GDP for the U.K. in comparison to the OECD and the EU 15

By Sugar-Baby-Love - Own work, CC0,

The current biggest con is the disparity between the 1% and the rest of us.

Upper-middle-class people are brainwashed into thinking they’re the 1%. They’re not – they’re paupers compared to the actual people ruining the planet.

The clue is in the number. The 99% us need to join together and remove 99.9% of the wealth from the 1%. Hell, they’d still be rich, I think that’s more than fair.

Let’s do like Britain did during the war and make sure the richest are contributing properly to society, let’s bring back 99.25% tax for the top 5% earners!

No Fancy-Schmancy For Me!

So, I was trying to book a fancy restaurant and nearly committed till I saw they had a dress code which said no sports clothing / trainers.

I have an abdominal hernia which means I have to wear certain types of top for comfort, polo shirts usually. And the oedema in my feet means that two hours in fancy shoes = next day hobbling.

It’d be nice to have fancy food but I guess I’ll just give my money to somewhere not so up its own arse.

Fuck The World

How I know I’m now officially a Grumpy Old Git:

I find the medicalisation of every aspect of human behaviour within a previously normal spectrum to be increasingly odious and ridiculous.

And, obviously, I blame American culture and, specifically Big Pharma.

The more “patients,” the more pills, the more profits.

Wilhelm Reich was right: how can you cure a person when the world itself is sick?

SO – I bought Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes on iTunes and was appalled by the crappy encoding. This amazing film was rendered into a blocky, cyberdelic nightmare of hanging faces and shifting backgrounds. I complained.

Apple told be to get bent.

SO… I complained again.

And they caved.

Never give up. Be the squeaky wheel and you will get the grease, baby.

On Mr Zuckerberg’s New Threads

Someone using Facebook's new Threads app on their phone, the poor fuckers.

Zuckerberg: ‘Hey, we’re a cool new app – can we have your time and personal info? We won’t fuck you with it.’

Me: OKAY! You’re so cool and hip and cool! Lemme give you my entire personal life!

Them: POOH!


Matthew Healy – Another “Ironic” Racist

The 1975's Matty Healy Apologizes for Offending Ice Spice, But Not for Those Same Offensive Jokes
During an appearance on The Adam Friedland Show, the frontman, Friedland, and Nick Mullen made derogatory comments about the rapper and mocked Chinese and Hawaiian accents

During the conversation, Healy mentioned that he once messaged Ice Spice on Instagram, which opened the floodgates for Friedland and Mullen to refer to her as an “Inuit Spice Girl,” saying: “This chubby Chinese lady. ‘Yeah, I rap and [make] music.’ Do they talk like that? Do Inuits talk like that?” What followed was their unabashed mocking of Chinese and Hawaiian accents while Healy laughed along.

If Healy was embarrassed like he told the audience he often is when he finds himself in hot water, which happens at a perplexing frequency, it didn’t show. “Yeah, that’s what Ice Spice is like,” he agreed, co-signing the mockery more than participating. In another instance, the hosts encouraged Healy to message the rapper on Instagram for clarity. “So you slide into her DMs and ask ‘What are you? A fucking Eskimo or something?’”

Whether it’s Morrissey, Philip Larkin or Healy, the amount white people will bend over backwards to forgive their favourite racists is extraordinary.

I listened to the original podcast and it was two rich white men being HILARIOUSLY racist. Nick Mullen was the Clarkson and Healy was a bully sidekick, Hammond re-incarnated. Watch below and just replace every mention of Hammond with Healy, it works perfectly:

Fuck Healy and fuck every racist.

Amazon Shuts Down DPReview

DPreview Masthead and text saying ' to close'

Dear readers,

After nearly 25 years of operation, DPReview will be closing in the near future. This difficult decision is part of the annual operating plan review that our parent company shared earlier this year.

The site will remain active until April 10, and the editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering some of our best-ever content.

Everyone on our staff was a reader and fan of DPReview before working here, and we’re grateful for the communities that formed around the site.

Thank you for your support over the years, and we hope you’ll join us in the coming weeks as we celebrate this journey.

General Manager –

In the Noughties, I joined, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, Google/Gmail and many other services that, back then, were the plucky upstarts.

Some died, some grew wealthy and then more and more evil. With our data, with our interactions. And I watched as years of my data was sold on from company to company.

DPReview is just the latest reason for me to never, ever put any effort into a privately-owned, centralised service again.


Casey Review Confirms ACAB

Baroness Casey on the Radio 4 Today Show, caption "It's time for the organisation (Met Police) not to be in denial."

Women and children have been failed by the Metropolitan Police, with racism, misogyny, and homophobia at the heart of the force, a blistering review says.

Baroness Casey says a “boys’ club” culture is rife and the force could be dismantled if it does not improve.

Her year-long review condemns systemic failures, painting a picture of a force where rape cases were dropped because a freezer containing key evidence broke.

People moan about fantasy and SF and superhero media but you know what fantastical, unbelievable fairy tale world irks me most?


Any sane person knows that #ACAB and that they’re a white supremacist street gang. Even our media, with its hideous bias, has to print the truth of what scum the police are.

It’s not a couple of bad apples, it’s a rotten barrel. If good cops do join, it’s simply a matter of time before they’re harassed out of the force. Or worse.

This isn’t CRAZY TROT JYOTI MISHRA saying this, this is what the report above by a FUCKING BARONESS has to conclude. A BARONESS, a pillar of the establishment itself, a bona fide member of our ruling class. Fuck me, how bad do the police have to be that one of the elite has to publically shit on them?

Meanwhile, our TV is swimming with great cops solving cunning murders. I’m watching the Luther feature film currently and it features black SuperCop! Luther falsely imprisoned before being sprung and no doubt defeating the evil serial killer singlehandedly.

In real life, not so much. In real life, stalking, raping and murdering women.

Never forget, never forgive:

They’re scum.
