A view from a barstool 27 by Landlord

Beer 2They say a week is a long time in a Landlord’s life (or is it politics I get confused). The end of the footie season brings it’s challenges as the men are dragged round a DIY shop or have to mow the lawn and the laydees decide that outside eating should be the order of the night instead of a nice beer garden. I’ve also cut down two trees, with an axe no less, without ending up in A&E. I called them Screechy and Goldibollocks and thoroughly enjoyed the stress relief that smacking the bejeezus out of them gave.

It’s been a bit of a bad week for them on the reporting front. The photoshopped picture of Owen Jones about why he will vote for Europe was widely ridiculed on twitter and on Facebook. Their bible passages get more and more obscure and the new ISIS hunter clothing looks more photoshopped each time you look at it. The only thing they could hunt is a Pint and a kebab on a Friday night (not at my pub I may add).

On to the more sinister..

Immediately an event occurs Screechy, Goldibollocks and their high command publish the story and make sure it’s heavily intimated as a terror attack. Firstly a “massive” explosion outside the ITV studio’s lapped up by the biffers disciples as a terror attack. When it turned out to be a controlled explosion on a car whose owner decided parking restrictions weren’t for him, did they report this? Did they buggery. They let their devoted sheep continue thinking it was a terror attack.

Someone broke into Buck Palace. Terrorism according to their page and once again this was lapped up. When it then turned out to be a mental patient who was let out early with a decidedly English name, did they report this? Nope – the damage had been done and the Muslims had been blamed.

On to the stabbings in Hampton. Again heavily biased islamophobic overtones. Once again they jump on the bandwagon, once again, after the truth came out that it was a mentally disturbed man with no Islamic background, did they retract, did their sheeple suddenly change their minds?Nope again. They let their islamophobic followers fire off comment after comment that civil war is coming.

Finally the Egyptair crash which Nemesis wrote so eloquently about on Thursday. No official indications of whether this was a tragic accident or a terror attack. Experts from all over were called by the media to speculate, pontificate and send out reports of what other media was reporting. It was a terror attack said Egyptair before the blackbox was even found (usually this is done for insurance reasons). Now it transpires it’s gone from 100% terror attack to a 20% possibility. I may wait for the official verdict rather than scream Islamic Terror attack. I think I speak on behalf of EBF when I say our thoughts and prayers (for those of us who do) are with the victims’ families. But if it comes out that it is a tragic accident then will we see a retraction from the biffers? I won’t hold my breath.

Finally, some mirth, Election fever is over, there were embarrassed faces all round in the Fuhrer bunker and probably a meeting of the high command that goes something like this.

“How can we fleece more money out of the idiot followers?”

The answer falls right into their laps… the EU referendum. and another begging Email, this time for £21000 to get us out of Europe. The Email, on the page, tells more lies than truths and they think that their 1.4 million followers on the page will vote to leave. Trouble is only about 500000 of their followers are eligible to vote, but this won’t stop them. £21k for something the leave campaign have already spent millions on. There is a whiff of male bovine excretia. Now I’m not overly political nor do I know much about the inner workings of the European Union. Here at EBF we have a broad spectrum of political beliefs and would never try to overly politicise the page (although others may have in the past). all I would say on the matter is that the Leave campaign need to convince me I will be better off out of Europe not the other way round. However Brexit may suffer as I certainly won’t want to be tied to a campaign that the biffers now are openly campaigning for.

So that’s it for the week, now to find a BBQ to gatecrash, and more trees to chop down (Lomax, Lewis and Blunn are the names of the next 3).

Cheers,

Landlord
