I know that the mainstream media keep saying that we are living in exciting and extraordinary political times but actually we’re not. For the last 3 years it’s pretty much been the same everyday, and the unionists argue that it’s been that way since September 2014.
I don’t think I have been this bored with politics for a long time. Everyday feels like Groundhog Day, it really does. The SNP plod along saying the same things on different days and it feels like we are not moving forward. The Tories fight like rats in a sack and we now have the prospect of a new lame duck PM elected by just over 100,000 thousand deluded Tory members, like they did 3 years ago, what kind of democracy is that. Labour don’t know what they want, when they want it, are they anti semitic or not, while the right in their party try to bring down their leader. The Liberals are looking for a new leader again, and are going Tory again, while trying to convince us they were the good guys in the coalition, wankers. The Brexit party make noise, prompted by the BBC at every opportunity, and might win a few seats but probably not but also remind us how England has lost its collective mind while Trump is just that bad dream that you just want to go away.
For the next little while I’m just going to blog Something Different. Most of the blogs I read, while being excellent, are also just repeating themselves just now and both Wings and Pete Bell have slowed down or taken a break. I just can’t remember a time when our politics was this bad, and this boring, everyone I know is bored with it, we need an independence campaign or something to happen with Brexit. Here’s hoping something gets going soon because for the last 3 years we have just been repeating ourselves.
