Elizabeth Truss

useless right-wing think tank stooge

you will not be missed

by Scooj

Interesting to note that in the Daily Star’s contest about who would last longer between a lettuce or Liz Truss, the lettuce won. A meme that will haunt her forever.

Liz Truss

Peter principle

power beyond competence

so out of her depth

by Scooj

* Peter principle:

The Peter principle is a concept in management developed by Laurence J. Peter, which observes that people in a hierarchy tend to rise to “a level of respective incompetence”: employees are promoted based on their success in previous jobs until they reach a level at which they are no longer competent, as skills in one job do not necessarily translate to another.

The decline and fall

is spectacular and fast

Tory disaster

by Scooj

  • I don’t even have the energy to rant about the utterly disgraceful Liz Truss and her disgusting cabinet. The damage they have done and continue to do fills me with a resentment that I simply don’t want to have. When I see what revolting surprises they hit us with each and every day, I am filled with despair and depression. What have they done to our nation? My poor children.

Spectacle

Old warring factions

each one hungry for power

the gloves are off now

by Scooj

• The chaos left behind by Boris Johnson’s long-awaited resignation is resulting in an inglorious bun-fight for the Conservative party leadership… again.

A very poor quality field, most of them tainted with the corrupt Johnson regime, they lied for him let’s not forget. A real race to the bottom.

Open letter to the world

Please do not mistake

the actions of government

as the people’s will

by Scooj

As our Government edges towards fascism, the canary in the mine has died, but have we noticed it yet? Well I have, and many others too. Changing times ahead.

Announcement

.

The civil service

to be cut back by a fifth

a savage attack

.

by Scooj

I am a civil servant and I am disgusted with today’s announcement that the government has decided to cut 91,000 jobs. Worse still, they made the announcement in an article in the Tory propaganda machine the Daily Mail, rather than having the courtesy to inform their own staff first. Disgusting but typical.

I would hope that the nation remembers that it was the civil service that kept the country on its feet during the pandemic, that keeps the government machine ticking over. Civil servants were lucky enough to keep their employment throughout, and worked bloody hard too. And don’t forget they also pay taxes, not something the government will ever recognise.

I despise the Conservatives and their contempt for the public sector. I yearn for an election and the chance to be rid of the lot of them.

3165. St Werburghs tunnel (185)

I am enjoying these full-length pieces from Daz Cat that he seems to be working on at the moment, it gives the characters so much more personality and offers scope for the artist to develop that personality.

This is rather a fun piece at the farm end of St Werburghs tunnel that shows a cat reading a right-wing newspaper, and suggests that readers of such papers are mugs. I would love to get all political about this, but it is a Monday morning and I am a little tired, so you can all rest easy. I love the way Daz Cat has painted the clothes on this character. A really nice piece.
