Kick It Out?

By Johny Helzapopin
In a week where Romelu Lukaku has scored again for Manchester United, continuing his blistering form since his arrival from Everton, off-field issues have overshadowed what all United fans should be focusing …

You can keep your privates away from me, thank you very much

Having never given it a second thought, mainly down to having the NHS and therefore not needing it, private healthcare was something I’d never been intimately acquainted with. That all changed a few years back …

We were makin’ love by Wednesday…

Today a three-day strike by hospital workers defending their right to acceptable conditions and pay has begun. They are striking against Serco, a multi-billion pound global company that won the contract to supply cleaners, porters and other staff to hospitals in London. Serco’s CEO is Winston Churchill’s grandson. Our solidarity with Serco workers is absolute.

“We’re going to save it you bells…”

It took my first holiday abroad on my own with my mates to try and get my head round why I’d need travel insurance, I think the conversation went “why did we need that as it’s free isn’t it?” The concept that it wasn’t free just didn’t make sense at all.

Don’t draw a cock

Every time I get in the voting booth I get the urge to draw a cock on the ballot paper. It’s worse this time cos a family member has appointed me as a proxy. It’s double temptation to draw a cock.

And what will follow? More of the bloody same. More people using food banks, more people dying because they have had their benefits stopped, a hard brexit that will make the whole country worse off, a tax haven for the very rich, people finding that, in real terms they are facing pay cuts and less workers rights.

The best thing since black pudding

I’m immensely proud of my upbringing in Manchester in the 90s and the communities which shaped me that have been forgotten. The people who work hard and look after each other have been badly let down by the politicians of all persuasions who were supposed to look after them.

Over the past six weeks every time Corbyn has opened his mouth he has spoken for me and my family; not the bankers who got us into this mess in the first place; not for the establishment; not for the rich; not to the parliamentary Labour Party!

It’s because they’re a bunch of working class-hating, tax-avoiding, arms-dealing, benefits-slashing, Sure Start-closing, NHS-privatising, nuclear weapons-loving, fox hunting-supporting, zero hour contract-enabling, big business tax-cutting, expenses-claiming, grammar school-resurrecting, food bank-denying, Trump-fellating, Murdoch-schmoozing, pig’s head-fucking, mustard coloured pants-wearing bastards.

Mikey Boy and the Time to Talk

As I sat parked up, I had flash backs to when I entered his house in the days after his death. His closest friends, inseparable from childhood, were unable to re-enter after they had been the ones to find him upstairs. Unable to believe he was dead, his best friend had attempted to hold him, screaming at him to ‘wake up’. On the wall opposite, he had written in black marker pen ‘I’M SORRY!’
