I once got taken to task in a online group for using the word “balls”. In the UK, “balls” is often used. Saying somebody has “balls” is a like saying they “kick-ass”. Bollocks may be offensive, but balls is not.
Why do politicians lack balls?
Let me make something quite clear, I am not being sexist in saying politicians lack balls. Quite often, there are women in politics who have far more balls than most of the men around them. Clair Short, for example. She had a lot of balls. So did Harriet Harmon. You can always spot a politician with balls, because the press will portray them like some deranged fool and potential dictator. Straight away, you know that Tony Benn and Ken Livingstone had balls, because the press hated them so much. Why does the press hate these people? Because they are jealous, they have no balls. They are made up, primarily, of people who are mainly testicularly challenged bigots or liberals. There are exceptions, such as Julie Bindel and Julie Birchill – but on the whole, journalists are self-serving sycophants who do not have the balls to stand up to the greedy selfish people who run the newspapers they work for. This is why people in the UK get fed such a pasteurised heap of crap as news – a mixture of fear of what is happening outside their front doors, fear of what is happening beyond the English Channel & Irish Sea, and a steady diarrhea of reality and celebrity TV.
My first item of news is one that illustrates the impotence of politicians, not in the UK, but in the USA.
If people had half a testicle, they would follow through on this, publicise that all this quackery has been disproved, ban advertising these practices, prevent quack licenses that let people set up as consultants doing things that don’t work and taking money off sick people, file medical malpractice suits against people that persist, and establish up a fund to help all the millions of deluded people who have ever tried such charlatanry to sue their asses off. But it won’t happen, because the people that practice and promote this stuff are not scientists, are not rational, and they will never accept any evidence – and claim it is their right, their freedom, to leach off the needy and peddle their quackery.
The second example shows the testicular challenge facing many countries in Europe, including the UK.
Iceland is a small country with people who had the balls to stand up to their leaders and get them to do what they were told, not the other way round. England is a small country full of people who don’t have the balls to do that, they do what their leaders tell them to do, and think what the media tells them to think. That is why the press, which has no balls, didn’t bother to tell people in the UK that a small country with balls managed to stand up to their politicians, and refused to pay for the mistakes of bankers – and insisted they don’t, that they grow some balls, and hunt down the bankers and make them pay for what they did to their country. People in the UK need to grow some fucking balls and stand up to the politicians, and the media, expose their lies, refuse to pay for the mistakes of rich men, and force their government to do what they, the people, tell them to do, and hunt down the bankers and make them pay for their mistakes. But they won’t. Because they have no balls.
Politics without balls doesn’t work.
