Tramp the dirt down

  1. Well that’s repulsive. Thanks for sharing your evil. I am guessing you reserve this level of bile for people who agitate against your right to tell them how they should be living their lives, rather than actual tyrants. Ostracism is the correct response to you, bubba.

  2. Hey Mr Wagner,did you feel the same level of outrage when the Belgrano was sunk?

  3. Fuck you, Wagner, you ignoramus!

    Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
    Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
    Wake up – sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
    Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She’s gone where the goblins go,
    Below – below – below. Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out.
    Ding Dong’ the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
    Let them know
    The Wicked Witch is dead!

  4. I will suggest a song from the greatest Marxist Pop-Rock band: McCarthy’s The Wicked Palace Revolution. It also contains an eerie prophecy about New Labour. They suggest a win for Kinnock against Thatcher would just be a continuation of her policies.

    There was once an evil queen who waved the wand and blighted the land
    No school no hospital was safe in the killing touch of her hand

    When O queen people sang
    Will you leave us in peace?

    This queen was not alone she was egged on by loads of goblins
    Her wish was their command they would weave spells that spelled death

    When ministers some sang
    Will you leave us in peace

    Luckily help was nigh because of gallant Welshmen
    Gathered round a lovely band from all those who wished to see
    Freedom and democracy joyfully the poor people sang
    The people sang

    Could it be that now better days will come along?

    So one day gallant Neil and all his men who egged him onward
    Fell on the wicked palace they rid the land of the queen

    Could it be that now better days will come along?

    But as soon was clear the evil stayed though the queen had gone
    The head beneath the crown had changed but all else remained the same
    The land was still laid to waste so sadly the poor people sang
    The people sang

    Could it be that never better days will come along?

  5. Always lovely to see people who have so normalized economic exploitation that they say nonsense like we should reserve our bile for “real tyrants.”

  6. Call me crazy but did I just see Thatcher’s face tortured into the stylized rendition of “Guerrillero Heroico”?

  7. The economic model she and Ronnie espoused blew up in 2008, but the language of neo-liberalism is still in firm control.
