Show them the pigs

“This is Bessie,” I say proudly, “and that’s Derek, Beryl and this little’n is Gertrude. They haven’t been fed for 3 days. These fine pigs have been chosen by the British public via referendum, to make up for the numerous referenda you promised us and then failed to deliver on.”

“But it was a treaty, not a constit-“

“No, no, Hazel, the time has passed for all that, long passed.” I reply, “Come this way, we still have Jenny, Boris and Des to visit, they are in the other enclosure, along with the honorary boar – Snowball, a two tonne gargantuan. You Napoleons are going to be the special guests of the feast.”

They are lead onwards, single file, towards the second enclosure. Blair leads, followed by Brown, Blears, Miliband, Balls, Smith, Harman, Campbell, Cooper, Flint, Straw and Purnell.

“Hazel, you will be first. Not today, but at the end of the week. We, the people, wanted dearly for you all to spend at least a few days thinking about your demise and to help you visualise that moment we brought you here, to the enclosure. We wanted to show you the pigs in advance. Come Friday, it’ll be feeding time. It was the only punishment we thought suitable for the crimes of you honourable members.”

Mandy breaks down, he falls to his knees and wails. Whimpering breaks out along the line. Purnell vomits. Blears maintains her robotic grin throughout, the only sign of inner fright is a twitching, restless hand.

Taken back to their cells, they each sit in solitude for their final days, constantly plagued by images of Bessie and Timmy pottering about the enclosure. Only a month prior they had been forcibly dragged from Westminster by a 2 millions strong crowd, the chant of “show them the pigs!” still rang in their ears…





That’s the current dream, it’s not quite Martin Luther-King yet but it’s a work in progress.

I cant help but think that one of the major problems with British politics is that the pigs have never been unveiled. Or rather, parliament gave the monarchy a tour of the farmyard in the 17th century, but the people have never extended the same courtesy to our parliamentarians, we have neglected their needs and so in turn they neglect ours.

As i listen to Brown's snivelling proposals for "radical reform", or see smarmy Dave giving a heartfelt monologue on the beauty of the FPTP system, i just cant stop thinking about the pigs...

Next time you read some offensive guff from any of our esteemed representatives you too can calm yourself by going to your "happy place", be it having the honour of personally leading the pig parade, or, as Annetan suggested, burying them alive in a rubbish dump.

For therapy of a different kind, you can read "The triumph of the political class", by Peter Oborne. He apparently writes for the Mail but dont hold that against him. In fact do, but read the book anyway. I was so frothing with primal contempt for New Labour that i was certain i could never again hate anything as much as i hated those ministers, but with the help of Oborne's book i am finding a whole new world of disdain and loathing. If you want to plumb new depths of despair, if you want to find the limits of your disgust, you can do it all with Oborne's help.

  1. "Show them the pigs" works well as a rallying cry, too. Someday, instead of "Aux barricades, citoyens!" revolutionaries will say, "Show them the pigs!"

  5. That Rowenna thread's still rumbling on, and in true CiF fashion, the original article has been forgotten and the various factions are busy grinding and wielding their gleaming axes.

    Aimeeus has just (8.57 a.m.) taken a particularly hefty swing at the patriarchy - she's even used CAPITAL LETTERS to show how goddam angry she is, godammit.

    Sigh. There's so much still to be done.

  6. @jay:

    I'm sure the Glaser family has its eye on a substantial portion of it.

    Ferguson's a lizardy-eyed fucking reptile who can't talk pwoperwy, but he's good at getting the best out of any player who he sets his sights on. £20M would buy him a decent player who he could mould into "the new Ronaldo".

    ReplyDelete
  7. I heard the Glazers said he could have it all for transfers.



    "There's still so much to be done."

    Has anyone gone for a "speak out"? Or talk of "brave women"? "daring" to challenge the status quo etc... I love fem buzzwords, all subtly suggesting the sheer fear that our womanfolk live in for venturing beyond the kitchen. BREEZE wll be along soon, i know you remember BREEZE, swifty, majestic strokeplayer and a real crowd pleaser. And she didnt just USE capitals, her goddamn NAME was in CAPITALS!

    I havent checked in on Rowenna for a while, i was comfortable that she and Sagar had been thrashed appropriately by the ciffers, particularly AllyF, so i stopped checking in. I like it when that happens, when you cant be arsed to express your disgust at an article but 100 other ciffers can, and eloquently and humorously.

    I just posted a Blears pic, it wasnt a weblink but an attachment so i didnt know how to do it other than a full post - though its not for comment, just wanted to share the pic. I got sent it recently. She is so small i find her quite disturbing and unsettling.

    My brothers girlfriend went to a protest somewhere and Blears turned up. She said she wanted to scream abuse at her but felt she was so small it didnt seem right, like abusing a child.

  8. Yeah, you got to hand it to Ferguson and the Old Trafford system (lots of ex-Utd men behind the scenes - Crerand, Phelan, Solskjaer, Macari). £12m quid five years ago, numerous trophies later he sells the current World Player of the Year for a cool £68m profit.
    People forget what Ronaldo was like when he started.

  9. The thing to remember about Ferguson and Man U is that no player is bigger than the club. Ever.

  11. Got to agree with you regarding Ferguson.

    I once ran into him, whilst briefly working at Manchester Airport, & he was rather aloof; if not quite rude, with the staff, but quick to get all pally with the police, who were on duty.

    Nice to see that people are actually taking Rowena seriously. Personally, the minute I read the bit about how Oxford & Cambridge was the source of our future leaders; together with her stating that all of her friends at the two uni's have rallied round to support her, I just switched off, as the whole thing just seemed so pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  12. @GP01:

    I think the irony that her pals from Oxbridge were "rallying round" was rather lost on poor Rowenna, bless 'er. It's precisely the behaviour you'd expect from the "old boy/old girl" network, no?

    ReplyDelete
  13. be very interesting to see who replaces Fergie when he steps down, they are quite some boots to fill.

    Was nice to know Rowennas friends agreed with her, i thought, just confirmed my suspicions that the article was risible faeces.

  14. 'Taken back to their cells, they each sit in solitude for their final days, constantly plagued by images of Bessie and Timmy pottering about the enclosure.'

    Excellent. I would only add that, in order to enhance the days of fear for the big guns, they could be shown the pigs in action first. You could casually toss the pigs a greedy back-bencher and make the others watch. They would then also have the sounds of the terrifying screams to mull over in their cells.

  15. Jay, all very Deadwood aint it?
    Which reminds me, whenever I post on a Denis MacShane piece I always try to work in the title of that fine series, it affords me some small amusement in these dark times.

    ReplyDelete
  16. There's one question no one's asked Rowenna yet, as far as I can see from a skim down the comments - why on earth did she apply to Oxford anyway? Had she (gasp!) subconsciously bought into the old trope that attending Oxbridge would enhance her job prospects once she left the dreaming spires?

  17. Guys, not everyone from Oxbridge is evil...........

  18. @Dotterel:

    I know, it's just the bien pensant ones who've been ushered quietly into the Graun's hallowed precincts who are...

    Only joking, of course. I knocked Oxbridge back because it wasn't best for my chosen subject(s), and also because I was looking to move to a big city like Leeds or London (where I ended up, Kings "actually" on the Strand).

  19. Scherf,

    That really is a superb idea. It is a work in progress so all input welcome, but the idea of them spending a week hearing the backbenchers gobbled up is superb. They they could *hear* the pigs too. That was one of the reasons i wanted Blears, first, not Blair. She would be a little meal but they would all then have seen a demonstration of the pigs in action. Tony would be last purely because then he'd have to watch all the rest.


    "all very Deadwood aint it?"

    Whats Deadwood when its at home?

  20. @jay:

    One further refinement, if I may: hold out the possibility that there may be some form of last-minute reprieve for the condemned.

    Knowing that there was the faintest chance that they might actually be spared the hogs would inspire hope in the guilty. The experienced jailer would kinow that to truly break them, he would first need to build up hope, then dash it, then build it up again, then dash it... all the way to the final walk to the sty. Even then, it would be appropriate to stage a mock reprieve, and lead the broken MP back to the cell. To begin the process again.

    You could spin it out until your taste for vengeance was well and truly satisfied...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Interesting idea, Swifty, i like this. The mock reprieve... It could go on for months... Yes, i like this...

  22. Jay, A very good, extremely foul mouthed series set in 19th century Deadwood. Murder victims were fed to the pigs. Starred Ian MacShane.
    They seem to have had a super mod trawl through everthing on Cif this morning.
    I have had a comment, 'shame the Guardian printed this' kinda thing completely disappeared from the Salma thread, it had been up 22 hours.
    Others have had lots of harmless stuff from the Steve Bell piece modded.

  31. BBC, Blears, today

    "Ex communities secretary Hazel Blears says she regrets "enormously" the timing of her shock resignation - just before local and European elections.

    The Salford MP said she thought as two other ministers had announced they would stand down, she could do so without sparking a "huge firestorm"."

    So she now claims she wanted to avoid causing a firestorm, despite wearing a badge saying "rocking the boat" and resigning the day before the election. I just dont understand how people can lie so badly and still show their face in public.

    The Yaqoob "comedy" piece really was particularly ill-advised.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks all,

    pretty much all of pens discussion of his current predicament is on the current WDYWTTA thread, but I and others here have talked to him on numerous other threads. His unique and rather dense style has caused a lot of speculation, an early theory was that he was a Turing machine (a computer/ software package designed to convince people talking to it that they were having a conversation with a real person) but he's more sophisticated than any of the self declared Turing machines on the web: He's either the best I've ever seen (by about 1000%, the others you can catch out in 3 to 5 questions) or he's a real person. He's even recently offered a real name and identity, which from others googling seems genuine.

    Jay and I came to the conclusion he's either genuine, or conducting some psychology experiment on us. I for one don't mind taking the risk of being experimented on in that way if the other option is that he needs someone to talk to, hence the recommendation that he gets an outlet.

    "Although I fail to see how a sane person could argue that 9/11 and 7/7 were *not* the result of US and British foreign policy."

    I'll have a crack, if OK with you?

    The fundamental problem is the particularly unpleasant strain of Islam which those terrorists subscribed to. They were not, as some apologist was once trying to argue ATL on CiF, the product of economic hardship or discrimination, far from it, in fact. What they were was believers in a fundamental form of Islam which believes all kuffur are fair game.

    It's not a popular view, frankly, and it sits ill with me to hold someone's religious belief against them, trust me on that, but this strain of Islam is very dangerous to us in the West and we ignore it, or try and downplay its influence, at our peril.

  40. Swifty - well, I'll go for a combination of the two. Religious nutters driven to insanity by foreign policy.

    Funny part is that I seem to remember reading somewhere that the 9/11 bombers weren't at all devout - were seen drinking etc. beforehand. Dunno if it's true, obviously.

    Commanderkeen - good snipe at Sagar on the boards. As for PPE, thats what im doing you rude git (at the OU, not Oxford), and i was far from innumerate, i did Maths A level thank you very much. Cheeky bugger.

    ReplyDelete
  45. CommanderKeen12 June, 2009 13:42

    Jay, ahem, what I meant was that there are too many PPE graduates getting into politics and not enough graduates of more technical degrees. Does the economics part of PPE involve horrendously complex statistics, as my sister's pure Economics degree did or is it for innumerate people who want to be seen to do economics but don't have the skills? I exclude you from any criticism on account of a maths A level ;)

    But christ Sagar is a cock, I knew people like him at uni, student debating societies, politics, etc, hated them. No interest in anything but furthering their career to increase the volume of their voices because they believed their poorly thought out views should be broadcast to a wider audience because they were so great and everything.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Jay, you'd better keep that PPE shit quiet if you ever write ATL. All those Cif Oxbridge youngsters have given it a bad name. They're crucifying Sagar over there now. Remember my little bit of research on Sagar here a few months ago? They've dug out an obscure Pakistani interview about blogging which I read some time ago, and are pulling it to pieces line by line. Catch it before they delete the comments - it's a laugh.
    He is totally fucked.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ha ha, Commander, I've just seen that it was you who 'outed' Sagar's interview. The last time I just used his comments on 'Cif detritus'. You're a hard, ruthless man :0)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Commander

    No offense taken, i start doing Maths with Economics but then fell out with them over a maths assignment that got lost in post, so switched to PPE.

    The way it is structured i am doing phil and pol for my two final year level 3 modules so i dont know what the lvl 3 eco is like, but the level 2 is quite tricky, no heavy maths yet but some reasonably tricky quantitative ideas and descriptions, but without doing the lvl 3 bit i wont see the harder stuff. But the econ i have done with them so far hasnt been anything like as tricky as the maths A level. In its defence, a lot of the economics students i knew from A level would miserably fail with the pol and phil stuff though.

    Completely agree on the amount of Oxbridge PPEs in politics, far, far too many.


    Scherf - its the OU! The egalitarian Uni that works with the BBC! The Graun will love it.

    I am loving the hammering Sagar is getting, i really am. The ciffers have been on form this week, some good group attacks, like a pack of rabbid dogs.

    It was Hannibal (2001). Verger trained them up in Sardinia or somewhere, and then dispatched them in vans ready to eat Lecter. Terrifying scenes of the hogs, but I can't find any clips.

  69. It strikes me that giving these young, privileged, talentless fuckwits space ATL might not necessarily be a bad thing. It's immensely entertaining for us as they utterly expose their mediocrity to a tough crowd. And perhaps their egotism and total lack of self-awareness might take a bit of a hit (unlikely, I admit). They might even cry at how beastly we are.
    The likes of Meltzer, Sagar, Davis etc have now had a little glimpse of real life outside their comfortable bubble. And I suspect that even the Guardian might eventually recognize them for the nonentities they actually are, and cease to employ them. Although I won't hold my breath.

    ReplyDelete
  70. "PPE Oxford?" - not quite, OU.

    Montana - you'll be able to get involved with some cif lynchings then, good stuff. Sagar has taken a real pummelling.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Me neither scherfig.
    The problem is, as was pointed out by rapideddie, is that practicaly everyone at the Guardian is cut from virtualy the same cloth, in regards to the comfy bubble.
    They're hardly in a posistion to be questioning, for privileges they also enjoyed.
    Instead, they'd rather people the barricades against the nasty hordes.
    Again this shows the hypocracy of a Newspaper which regulary asks us to question our countries attitudes and privileges, yet turns tortoise when somebody says "umm..well what about you lot then?"

That all these self-absorbed early-20s oxford graduates can just waltz out of university and straight into a paid gig writing 'comment' for a national newspaper really boils my piss. So thanks for the laughs, to RapidEddie & AllyF in particular.

  77. Bloody BT broadband had its, ever more regular, failure earlier on, so I seem to have missed quite a bit.

    Marina Hyde's got another belting piece out again. One of those ATL contributors you always look forward to reading & well up to expectations.

  86. Good track kiz :-)

    Like the pixies, though I always get confused by the Caribbean/Car rib ean (if that makes sense) issue (probably not)

    The kitten - mylo - is a bourgeoisie little thing, having stolen and loved some smoked salmon I had. And now he is drinking gin from my G&T.

    Have a link in return (my rellies band hehe)

  87. Oops correcting an error - of course the kitten didn't just steal the gin from my G&T (that would be some trick)

    And ooh drunk a fair amount of wine tonight - Kiz, much prefer your measures, half a kilo or so. Happy times.

    Have a good weekend all.

    And Deano30 - my sympathies and thoughts.

  90. thx, GP01, one of the few things I've got a bit annoyed about lately for some reason.
    And, kiz, I won't tell you again about those links - it takes about two minutes to learn it and then you can do it in your sleep (drunk or sober). Get with the program - you're not reaching your audience.

  91. Oh.. I dunno a few will check em... they won't be able to resist my charms drunk or sober... I reckon..
    And I promise the next time I'm sober I'll sort it..
    But not now!
