The Power of Dubious Taste

Regular readers will know that I struggle with Monday mornings, and as a result have started posting upbeat songs to get us all (i.e. me, and anyone else who feels the same) moving on that most cursed at day of the week.

This week, I posted “Something Good” by Utah Saints, and as I wrote the post I decided against writing the words “I hope something good happens to you today”, dismissing it as being just a bit too Smashy and Nicey…

Nevertheless, two good somethings happened on Monday, depending on your perspective.

First, and you may have missed this, it got very little coverage in the press and mass media, Prince Harry announced his engagement. We’ll revisit this at a later date, I think.

And then this:

Hopkins 1

Apparently ‘mutual consent; is a polite way of saying ‘fired’ now.

And then, shortly afterwards, somebody realised that her online presence might hinder her future job prospects:

Hopkins 2

Like anybody who takes her on as an employee wouldn’t know exactly what they were getting.

So that left the Mail Online one columnist short, and it didn’t take too long for one particular candidate to toss his hat into the ring. Yes, if you’re going to write for the Mail Online, then you need to be able to spout and respout xenophobic, anti-Muslim, crap, and there’s no finer way to do that than to retweet already discredited footage shot by ultra-right wing knobheads Britain First. Step forward, President of the United States and model for “Wotsits: The Movie!” Donald Trump, who when chastised on Twitter by our Prime Minister for having done just that, responded thus (note the condescending, passive/aggressive use of her first name):


…but sent it to the wrong Theresa May.

The man is such a fucking idiot, he can’t even hit a button marked “Reply” properly.

Anyway, since Monday’s post brought such something good(ish) news, I thought I’d just leave this here. Karma, do with it what you will:


Drugstore (feat. Thom Yorke) – El President

More soon.
