It’s no surprise that so many of these ‘winners’ end up in Westminster. It’s worse than entitlement. They are possessed of the idea that it is their duty to be Prime Minister. They are exceptionally dangerous people. Broken by childhood trauma & told it was deserved privilege.

there's something so distinctively peterson about needlessly calling some random actual woman ugly under the bullshit guise of intellectual concern for the west and authoritarianism, and then whining about how people online are being mean to him

I’m mostly sick of seeing Jordan Peterson stuff but the post everyone is talking about today is funny because it seems like he tried jacking off to the cover photo and failed and tried to make it a political issue

Yeah, most of them probably still will, but it’s shifting. “Brexit fucked everything up” is no longer QUITE as unsayable as it’s been thus far.

I was a guest on @Jaack’s podcast a while back and tried to explain why things like Liverpool booing the national anthem happen. If you’re still confused where the anti-establishment mentality comes from, it might be worth you watching. Or maybe not. invidious.fdn.fr/G-Gp-14WjDQ

My 9 year old has been referred to a cardiologist after experiencing frequent episodes of syncope following COVID. To those in my profession who have been repeatedly downplaying COVID in kids, have a hard look at yourself and reflect on whether medicine remains right for you

They’re always a weather vane; I think more and more people are coming round to the notion that we got screwed. There’s an important emotional distinction to be made here; people are far more comfortable feeling angry than being penitent…

I think Leave voters have been furiously resisting the “we got it wrong“ thought, but are starting to embrace the “we got screwed over“ thought. Now the important thing is that they blame the Conservatives and not the Europeans…

Like I said, this feels significant; as recently as about a month ago they’d have left in the bit where you got talked over and given equal time to the invariably vapid and patronising “response”.

“It is in the Conservative’s interests to de-politicise poverty, to propagate the idea that hardship is a result of poor people’s bad decisions rather than government policies.” >> My col. on why Tory MP “budget better” remarks are more than insulting. theguardian.com/commentisfre…

At 17, @Jake_Daniels11 represents a generation that rejects old-fashioned homophobia in football and elsewhere: those who haven’t yet grown up as he has. He sets an example. No wonder so many of us, gay and everyone else, admire & treasure him as a hero. What a goal he's scored!
