Remember those poor geese in Strasbourg who get force fed grain day and night so that they become so hopelessly obese they can’t move, and their vital organs become clogged with fat. At the end of their short, miserable lives, they are executed and have their livers ripped out. The resulting sweet-meat is called foie gras, (fat liver), consumed by the rich and unconscionable, a cruel delicacy.
Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone into a karmic time-slip, and ended up as a Strasbourg goose, along with my fellow citizens, stuffed with lies and distortions so blatantly, that I can scarcely recognise the truth anymore. Honestly, I’m choking with bullshit, spluttering with indignant rage while the liars and ‘shitters efficiently go about their business turning me into a big blubbering imbecile who can’t believe a fucking thing that is happening. Yes black is white.
The bankers are still ruining the world and the global economy is about to disappear down a black hole. We, the tax-payers, are still baling them out as they scoop their bonuses and options. Meanwhile around the world, neo-liberal governments are screwing ordinary people out of their cherished services in the name of austerity. They’re cutting the health services, and cutting taxes. But spending billions on nuclear weapons that will never be used. It’s all good for the economy. Bullshit. It’s good for the rich and unconscionable.
The papers are full of bullshit. About immigration. Benefits cheats. The Queen and her clean for a day. Corbyn is apparently unelectable, despite riding high in the polls (the real ones that is). Cameron has scored a famous victory for Britain in his EU negotiation. All bullshit.
The real tragedy is that we suck it all up with scarcely a murmur.
Larks tongues anyone?
Ah. What’s the point?
