7 July 3016 — The Wolf Report: Nonconfidential analysis for the anti-investor

1. Not to file too fine a point onto David Cameron’s head, but he certainly made a right cock-up of that one didn’t he?  A regular old Thomas Hardy he conjured, didn’t he?  Here he comes home, having stuck his thumb into the EU pie, felt one or more things round and soft– “a plum!” he thinks, “What a good boy am I!”– and pulls out hard, only to discover that the softs and rounds were his own testicles.  Oh, the shock, and pain, of recognition.  Fecking brilliant.

Conservative Britain: Repackaging the American Dream By Sean Keach

10 December 2013 — New Left Project

Much of America’s aggression towards communism in the 20th Century was mobilised through a propaganda campaign that dangled white picket fences and warm blueberry pies over the heads of a blue-collar citizenship.
