The UK Christmas Election is highlighting how awful the binary sloganeering of the right really is - and how much the power of the Billionaire owned press and media still is killing democracy.

Let this be your antidote.

Another Council Tenancy..?

 

As the power mongers... the aristocracy and rich in the UK, and the bureaucrats of the EU come to a deal that will cut freedom of movement, enforce Tory rule for another generation and impoverish millions across the British Isles, we bring you our ode to anarchy... our voices in the storm.  The Brexiteers bring you... something.  Nothing you voted for... or against... but nothing you understood.  Boris, Rees=Mogg, Farage, Bannon - the rich bastards that had you voting for stuff you didnt end up with, won again.

"Resist the Tory toffs, Resist the Bannonites, resist the Faragians... but I thought it was the ... NHS?  The foreigners? the blue passports?  The bent bananas?  WTF?"

The Spectacle

Available FREE  on iTunes and Podbean

 

The Trumpist, Murdoch, Fox news media; social media selfies while your finger is on the button of destruction of peoples lives - buying a pet dog while you are draining the country of what made it great, those are the Spectacle's most glaring superficial manifestation. The spectacle, Debord said, of course refers to "the autocratic reign of the market economy which had acceded to an irresponsible sovereignty, and the totality of new techniques of government which accompanied this reign."  The spectacle continues this "historic" week in the UK as democacy has almost been clubbed to death, but Boris Johnston, Farage, Bannon and the rest manipulate the masses through personally targetted adverts on their personal media pocket devices.  The Spectacle is creating an angry, bitter, but basically placid population, as they are conned and billed for being conned.

We have 5 pieces for you:

From Laura Lundahl who talks about immigration in the UK and is titled “Goodbye you bigoted woman - The tears of Theresa May's victims should get far more attention that her's did”.

Mhairi Hunter muses on Trump’s State Visit to the UK, Philip Hammond’s seeming lack of knowledge that there is actually poverty in the UK and get enthusiastic about the Govanhill Sistema Big Noise Orchestra.

Red Raiph’s piece is titled “Good Riddance Mrs May” and includes a Cheerio Song to her! I interview Graham Campbell and he tells us about the pre-World Cup friendly international between Scotland and Jamaica, the climate emergency, marches in Glasgow and updates us on ongoing processes of restorative justice in Scotland.

And Debra Torrance talks about migrant seagulls and birds near extinction and how you should feel sorry for them before feeling sorry for a fascist getting hit with a milkshake.

Music is from the Blackheart Orchestra, Petrol Girls, Ms MohammedSalvation Jayne and our featured artists for June -  Bioma. Bioma is a feminist queercore band, founded in 2017. The band arises from the encounter of four women from São Paulo (Brazil), carrying a intersectional feminist speech and libertarian (left-wing, anarchist), anti-rascist, anti-LGBTfobia and anti-CIStemic posture. Ungagged feature page on Bioma has info on them and links.
