Ah, you mean peer pressure! I’m afraid that, and groupthink, come with the leftie territory. It should be exploited mercilessly!

Ursula the Sea Witch will make it Labour policy to take away people’s empty homes if she becomes leader.

And squishy head wants to give Labour members a say as to who our military defends/attacks. Not the general public, only Labour.

Is there any sentient being who still thinks these people should be running the country? I wouldn’t trust them to run a bath.

We called it "the leading role of the Party" in Communist Poland. The logical next step is to embed party komissars in military units.

Well - I guess Brexit hasn't solved all the domestic problems. But, at least they're now just domestic, with nobody else really needing to worry, unless those leaders of yours decide to activate the tridents.

The King of France, Louis XVI, was rich, well educated, and a genius in machines. Guess what happened to him and his whole family. And the same could apply to the Romanovs too.

All of the heroes?
All the Shakespearoes?
They watched their Rome burn

Louis was very fat: he had higher percentage of body fat than the thinnest 50% of his subjects. Nobody likes fat people, especially those 50% - no wonder they "ate" him. Revolutions happen cyclically, like ouroboros eating its fat tail.

A bit harsh; Rasputin was to blame.

I think posho leftists have a pathological desire to be liked. They suspect they are not very likable and their reaction is to strenuously virtue signal. Probably starts at their private schools where being a team player is more important than individualism.

I bet there aren't many posho leftists who are Millwall fans. ("Nobody likes us, we don't care.")

Blah blah blah - more importantly:

How is your painting coming along? - Instead of all this political and epidemidiotic bluster, I'd rather see your first attempts at drawing or painting - anything you choose - a rose? a pitchfork? a pile of British pounds? the family dog? Che Guevara?  

The Black Cube Gallery is open 24/7 and is virus-free. Look forward to seeing your work!

I guess being deemed separate and different from a gang of drunken hooligans should really hurt. Oddly, not so much...

Theo Paphitis of Dragons' Den was owner of Milwall FC. 
He left school at 16.

Some people (posho leftists) would like to be so deemed. Personally I wouldn't care. 

Maybe any posho leftists could help also with the following questions. Do you have to work on that unsmiling victim look?

Are you born with it? Is it part of the signalling? Why don't the left smile?

It's pencil not paint.

I did a nice self portrait the other day. I look exactly like my mother. Oscar Wilde was wrong.
