Tuesday too

1. Sticking the boot in [good stuff]:


2. IMHO, we need to keep kicking this Hillsborough can down the road, just as with Brexit – string it out to fill the monotonous void of our lives:

3. It’s forever an issue, like leaking planks in the bilge:

Former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko was rescued by Spanish coastguard after the luxury yacht he was onboard caught fire.

The 43-year-old, who retired from boxing in August 2017, was on holiday off the coast of Mallorca.

“Our trip Sunday night ended up in our boat igniting and family and friends being evacuated by coastguard and fire rescue team,” the Ukrainian, who won 64 of his 69 fights, wrote on Twitter: “No worries: we are all fine!”

Sounds a bit Australian there.

4. No, sweetheart, it’s not just the parents, though they’re bad too – it’s you and your SJW peers, the ones who thing 9 year old drag queens are a good idea and that Beyonce can sing:

The last few days have shown the British left have adopted something else American: mass hysteria as a method of political persuasion. Donald Trump had been a household name for 25 years when he ran for president, and as such there wasn’t much about him which remained unknown. But as soon as he declared himself a Republican the left branded him a hard-right rapist and when he got elected went into a collective meltdown that’s showing no signs of abating. It’s been almost 3 years and they still haven’t got over the fact Hillary lost and a good chunk of the country doesn’t mind Trump. The Democrats have assembled a collection of lunatics to run against him in 2020 on a platform of white people paying black people reparations for slavery, the idea that Trump is literally running concentration camps, and open borders. Good luck with that.

6. Are you up to speed on this?

The Falcon Heavy rocket launched early Tuesday—two cores made it back safely. The center core had a fiery encounter with the Atlantic Ocean.

    “Julia said she had to go to Croydon yesterday”

    I spent a week there, one wednesday.

    1. I think it was Morrissey who said, “Never argue with a left winger. They will simply take their bigoted stupidity and beat you over the head with it.” It’s a shame he never incorporated that in one of his songs. I would have bought it for those two lines alone.
    2. It appears that those residents of Liverpool just won’t let it go. Hillsborough was a terrible tragedy and mistakes were made by several people and events: the train carrying Liverpool supporters arrived late; the start of the match was not delayed to take the late arriving supporters into account and the gates were shut; the crowd of Liverpool supporters, with or without tickets, crowding round the gate demanding entry to the stadium after kick-off; when faced with an ever increasing crowd at the gate, where it was obvious that someone would be injured or worse, the gates were opened to alleviate that pressure and the results could not have been foreseen; when the gates were opened, those people ignored the directions of the stewards to go either side of the ground as they wanted to be behind the goal. There may be other factors not mentioned, such as the ground possibly not being safe or suitable for such a large crowd, but David Duckenfield has been nominated as the scapegoated figurehead in order to please the people of the city of perpetual victimhood and offence (though their attitude changes when Heysell is mentioned) and only a public hanging, drawing, and quartering will possibly, but not necessarily, placate them. Every Liverpool fan who turned up without a ticket and joined the throng to gain entry is, indirectly, also responsible for those deaths. They know who they are and they should be filled with shame and remorse for their part, though I doubt that they are.
    As with the ex-soldiers being investigated for their part in Bloody Sunday, finding an impartial witness in a future re-trial seems an impossibility.
