Well, after arguing about 9/11 for a day, we here have now succeeded in outdoing “The Daily Star” in triviality. (For foreign readers’ benefit, the Daily Star majors on mostly unconfirmed but mostly scurrilous reports of the sexual activities of “foot” “ballers” and their “wives”, and on the similar activities of “Big Brother inmates”. “Foot” “ballers” are “signed” by, which is to say, they work for, “Major Clubs” (whoever he might be, I have no clue) and they “play” “foot “ball”, for money (which is fine in itself: I’m a libertarian after all: I don’t have to like it, though. )
“Big Brother” is a Wireless Tele Vision series of programmes about rude people shagging on the Wireless Tele Vision, and off it too I learn. It is funded indirectly by purchases of things that poor people need to buy, such as cigarettes and strong alcohol, since these people bear the brunt of Stalinism for all their lives without respite, and need anaesthetics on a regular basis, like every day. These things are therefore taxed heavily (this is called “progressive txation”) and then the tax-take is used by the Labour Government to pay its Enemy-Class-agentroids for the progs to be commissioned, to take people’s minds off Gordon Brown and Stalinism.
Today, however, we have this. A really really famous “film” “star”, of whom the entirety of humanity has heard, and to whose opinions all Men willingly defer, has stated, on taking part in a film about Irish Republican terrorists, that she would have certainly joined the IRA. Her wikipage makes interesting between-the-lines reading….
“I imagine, had I grown up in Belfast, I would 100 per cent have been in the IRA,” said the actress, whose father is Irish.
“My heart just broke for the cause. Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems, but I understand it.”
One is actually less interested in the opinion itself, than its existence and newsworthiness on account of the fact that this young actronnette (she’s only 35, the poor baby) is a movie star. (I do not really watch “movies” these days, finding “new” ones as I do increasingly unhelpful in elucidating stategic solutions to the world’s problems.)
She’s actually quite f***able. Perhaps the rest of her that’s off-camera is even OK too. What a waste that she (claims to) like lefties, and wants to be on their side. Sad: they deserve double-paper-bag-jobs*** such as Harriet Harman and Polly Toynbee. I’ve sacked a similar girlfriend, quite as pretty as that, in 1980 for saying I MUST stop talking-up Governor Reagan, since he was planning to blow up the world and threaten the poor Soviets. These people need to learn lessons on how to co-exist with normal humans, and can’t expect sex with decent people while yet having wrong opinions. (Perhaps I’m a chauvinist male bastard pig.)
This takes us also onto Barack Obama territory. I noted the other day that most of the “high profile names” who support the bugger are all to do with either the movie or entertainment industries (these may be two different things or they may not, I do not know.)
But when exactly was it that the opinions of mummers and jongleurs, and the modern types of generally useless wastes-of-space-and-rations, began to matter, not just to politicians (which is a small problem) but to ordinary sovereign individuals, which is a bigger one?
*** YOU have to wear one as well, in case hers falls off.
