After several years of referring to eligible UK voters as ‘rabble’, ‘dogs’, ‘cultists’, and ‘Trots’, the political establishment has a question:
Why are these twats all so hostile towards us?
When Jeremy Corbyn became the Labour leader, the political establishment explained:
He’ll never win support – what are you voting for this tramp for, you politically illiterate dipshits?
When he turned Labour into the biggest mass-membership party in Europe, the political establishment calmly pointed out:
Every one of the new members is a Trotskyist Cold War sleeper agent – come on – everyone knows that.
When Labour achieved a bigger vote share swing than even Tony Blair, they elucidated:
Wow, if you can achieve that with us complaining constantly, obviously we’ve not been complaining enough. Why are you still not getting it – this movement is doomed to fail, and you’re all thick as fuck!
Despite this, people seem loath to listen to the establishment’s keen political insight.
It’s a mystery.
Obviously, abuse isn’t helpful. Equally obvious is that if you use your lofty platform to denigrate massive swathes of denigrated and marginalised people, some of them are going to fight back.
Most people can see that. That’s why the tactic of stirring shit and running away hasn’t really worked.
Although, saying that, what do I know? I’m not a political genius like some. All I’ve got is an A level in obviousness.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
